Lovely half day visit to Water Village with Frank
Kiwibird03, 15-01-2020
Frank picked us up with his driver and we were instantly impressed with his good command of English. Born in Shanghai, he gave us a very interesting talk on the way to th Water Village about the city and China in general. We first went through the beautiful Chinese gardens, then hopped on a boat ride through the Water Village which was very pretty and relaxing. Frank took us through the tiny streets of Zhujiajiao and we got to sample many of the tasty snacks, including stinky tofu, which really was quite nice. Would recommend Frank as a guide, if you're heading to Shanghai for the day.
Great tour!!

This was a great tour and Bruce was amazing. He was very knowledgeable about Chinese history, explained every room and artifact at the water village in detail and had a great sense of humor. This tour also allows enough time to walk around alone to do a little shopping. I would definitely recommend this tour and hopefully you get Bruce as your tour guide.

They were very timely as far as pick up at a hotel near me.

We had a great time with Grace on our tour of Zhujiajiao water village with a stop at the silk factory on the way back to our hotel. Her English was great and she was very knowledgeable about the traditional Chinese garden that we saw in Zhujiajiao
Perfect tour

Though touristy, the town is genuine and interesting. Grace was our guide and was really great. The town is beautiful. I really loved the gardens and bridges. Was fine skipping the silk factory to spend more time in the village.
