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.

“We had an awesome experience with my tour guide, Vicky and the driver including my travel consultant Vera. We didnt expect very long process to get cleared from the China airport as a no visa visitor, so we were pretty late for our scheduled tour.

Luckily, my travel consultant responded my message at 6 am on Sunday, so I rearranged my time and the pick-up place instantly with reasonable extra payment, so we were picked up at the airport by the time we finished all the processes including our breakfast.

The entire team was so accommodating with our unexpected situation, so we were able to finish our trip nicely.
The car was very clean and comfortable. The guide was very enthusiastic to share as much as she could. She even brought us Chinese sneakers bar for our lunch due to our tight schedule. The travel consultant followed through very well to the end.

We couldnt have asked more. We had a great tour and the experience.”

“Travel China Guide is truly an amazing tour company.
During the booking process for a private tour for my family of 5 our agent could not have been phenomenal. She answered all communications quickly with a thorough response. The drivers and tour guides in Beijing (Evelyn) and Shanghai (Alexander) were both great. They were on time and greeted us with a warm smile daily. Their knowledge and warm personalities made touring China with 3 kids (ages 14,11 & 9) relaxing. They even assisted in fixing my phone when I dropped it severely cracking the screen.
If you are thinking of visiting China this is the tour company to choose.”
