Hangzhou Private Tour from Shanghai by Bullet Train

The bullet train makes Hangzhou easy to reach from Shanghai, but it doesn’t help you get around once you’re there. On this customizable private tour to China’s “city of heaven,” work with your personal guide to craft perfect the perfect itinerary. Opt to see highlights like UNESCO-listed West Lake, as well as less-familiar sights. Included hotel pickup and drop-off, train tickets, and lunch makes for a hassle-free day.  

What to Expect
Greet your guide at your downtown hotel lobby and catch the bullet train to Hangzhou. As you travel, discuss your Hangzhou must-sees, listen to your guide’s suggestions, and work together to design the perfect day.

On arrival, your private driver will greet you at the station. Try Dragon Well (Longjing) tea in Meijiawu Tea Village or Longjing tea fields; or explore West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site. You might want to visit Lingyin Temple, Leifeng Tower, Hefang Street, the Yue Fei Mausoleum, or the Liuhe Pagoda Cultural Park.

After your tour is finished, your guide will accompany on the train ride back to your hotel.
