Reviews of 3 Day 2 Night Suzhou, Zhouzhuang, Hangzhou Tour + Hotel Package by Gillian ***
The driver and guides were very good. They knew the history and the locations of the places of interest and were very generous with their expertise.
The accommodation selected, the motor vehicle and the restaurants were of good quality.
The only thing we would suggest is that the guide go over the menu choices with the guests. The guides provided menus that were typical of the areas we visited. The majority of the food was excellent and we enjoyed it. One evening the meal was barely edible, mostly bones and the soup was full of what looked like grass and tasted like it. The staff at this particular restaurant were rude and very inattentive. It was a weekend evening and the restaurant was very busy.
The tour and places of interest lived up to the descriptions in the guide books. Our only suggestion here is that the time in each place is not long enough. We were touring in spring and the gardens in particular were spectacular and as a garden lover would have like a lot more time to tour the gardens in depth.
We at least have learned what places to put in our next itinerary for longer stays.
Overall the trip was very enjoyable and we would recommend it highly and hope that the guides provided would be as good as the ones we had. Our driver was excellent, he drove cautiously and very safely, which we think is important in the busy traffic in China.
Thank you for the tour.
Gillian & Geoffrey Lance
