A Recent Review of this tour

Cindy was a great guide for our day trip to Hangzhou. In theory it sounds easy enough to get to Hangzhou on your own and see the sites. But I would not recommend it. Traffic is crazy. Let Cindy arrange everything for you and you'll be delivered and picked up at all the various sites in a most efficient manner. Your time is limited, make the most of it! I think Cindy would be fun to go shopping with and I wanted to do her knock-off shopping trip, but I ran out of time. Thank you Cindy we had a great day!
