Hangzhou Day Tour of West Lake, Lingyin Temple, Tea Village & Hefang Street
"My boyfriend and I visited Hangzhou for the first time and only had 2 days. We spent the first day on this tour and Nancy was fantastic. She knew so much about the towns and was very personable. We learned a lot about the village and the stories, and Nancy was able to advise us for what to do for our second day as well."..."

Private Hangzhou Tour of West Lake, Guo Garden, Tea Platation & Hefang Street
"It was a rare occasion that the sun actually shone for my day tour in Hangzhou. Guide Bonnie met us at the Hangzhou East train station, on time and courteous. She arranged the driver of a private car to pick us up to start the tour without any waiting in the usually crowded station. Bonnie narrated the itinerary of the trip and solicited our likes or dislikes so that she could make it better. This showed she was considerate and wanted no part in rushing us through. we first visited West Lake where we strolled at our leisure to enjoying the Gold Carp pond and the spectacular view of the lake side trails. We than took a cruise on a boat around the lake while Bonnie took time and explained to us the famous hot spots around the lake. We saw, for the very first time, the actual scenery that has been minted on the back side of the Yen 1 what she pulled out from her wallet. I of course snatched it from her hand and proclaimed it my priced possession. We stopped by a local restaurant for lunch. The restaurant was run by a tea farmer and the tea plantation was all around in that area. Lunch was home-made yet delicious. I tried the Braised Pork Belly Dong Po Rou in brown sauce. Excellent dish, Hangzhou style! Then we visited the famed Lingyin Temple where Bonnie gave us some history of it. She mentioned that a long time ago that the Flying Peak was carried by a legendary magic eagle or vulture from India to Hangzhou. What a temple! A must see in Hangzhou!! Later she noticed my wife had some difficulty in walking and promptly changed the agenda to fit our needs. What considerations! We ended the our tour after touring Qinghefang Old Street. At the train station Bonnie repeatedly offered us her assistance if we needed to change the Bullet train schedule. Talking about Bullet train, had you ever seen a slow bullet. It was a disappointment because I strongly believe that my 500cc motor bike could out run it. In summary, this trip was money well spent. We enjoyed it very much. We also appreciated the courtesy, knowledge, consideration and professionalism of guide Bonnie. A friendly advice for future tourists in Hangzhou: Have Bonnie, will travel!"..."
