Private Tour: Ultimate Hangzhou Sightseeing Tour

Hangzhou, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is one of China’s most celebrated destinations, but foreigners have yet to discover its charms. Locals speak little English, so a guide is essential for anyone who’d like to cover ground quickly. Make the most of the city’s key attractions—architecture, landscapes, tea, and silk—with this private Hangzhou tour tailor-made to suit your needs.

What to Expect

When you book, itemize any special interests you may have—architecture, history, culture, tea, silk, or rural life—so your guide can prepare an itinerary to suit your needs. On the day, greet them either at the train station or your hotel before you explore the city by climate-controlled private vehicle.

The exact itinerary will vary according to your interests, but most will include a boat ride and landscape viewing on UNESCO-listed West Lake (Xi Hu), fourth-century Lingyin Temple, a walk in the tea fields, a Dragon Well (Longjing) tea tasting, and a visit to one of Hangzhou’s historic shopping streets. At the end of the day, your guide will drop you back to your hotel or the train station.

Hangzhou is Beautiful and our guide David Was Fantastic

I'd been to Hangzhou in 1985 with my son (who was then in college) and recalled Hangzhou as the most beautiful and comfortable place in China we'd visited, with a very different feel from the many other places we'd visited as early (post-opening) tourists in...More

The car we were driven around in was a rather full sized car, and there was plenty of room in the back seat, so I would think a 3rd person -- or booster seat -- could go in the back.
