Start your journey with a drive from Shanghai to Suzhou. During the hour and a half drive, your guide will briefly introduce you to Suzhou City, praised as the Oriental Venice.

In Suzhou, begin the tour with a visit to the Humble Administrator's Garden, the most renowned classical garden in the city. Then, make your way to the Suzhou old town. Be transported to ancient China as you ride past one ancient structure after another on the back of a cycle rickshaw.

Later in the day, head to the ancient town of Tongli. Renowned for its intricate canal systems, the water town has been able to preserve its long history. It’s a wonderful place to take in the old-timey charm and glamour of China along the expansive Yangtze River.

At the end of the tour, your guide will take you back to your hotel in downtown Shanghai.

Peter's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“Surprise is the worst fear for a tourist traveling in foreign countries. I had surprises on this trip with Travel China Guide. The first surprise is the booking arrangement with the help of Sally, who did an excellent job in explaining details about transportation and payment options. She put my mind in ease to complete the trip arrangement. The other surprise was the professionalism of tour guides and drivers. I received full attention of them, being treated with respect. Tour guides ( Barry in Beijing and Judy in Xian) were knowledgeable and attentive. Both of them shared with me about history and culture in details. Another surprise to leave with me was that Barry was so careful and attentive taking us to the high speed train cabin and storing luggage in place. Judy did the same in caring us to check in a hotel after the trip.

In conclusion, I encountered surprises on this trip but pleasant and great!

Thank you”

Connie's review for another Travel China Guide tour
“I really appreciate all the excellent services that have been provided by TravelChinaGuide. The whole tour was extremely well organised and offered so much more than we expected with all the interesting side trips and things to see and do each day. We loved everything but we especially liked the Pandas at Chengdu, the Shennv Stream excursion on the Yangtze River Cruise and seeing Guilin and Yungshou. It was also an interesting experience to have lunch at a local apartment in Xi'an.

We will be recommending your company whenever we talk about our holiday.”
