Alles perfekt. Unser Guide Tom sprach perfekt Englisch und verfügte über ein unfassbares Wissen über die Sehenswürdigkeiten und China. Er war sehr nett und bemüht alles bestens für uns zu organisieren. Die Wasserstadt ist wirklich sehenswert und die Stadttour mit ihm war einzigartig. Kann diese Tour wirklich nur jedem empfehlen.

Great tour!

Our guide was Tom. Very informative, punctual and accommodating! Private tour gives more customisation. Worth every penny. We learnt so much. Tom is great and we wish we had him as our tour guide on other tours! You should do it!
