Brilliant Tour of Zhujiajiao Water Town
lornah584, 10-02-2022
We had an absolutely wonderful day on this tour. Snow was a phenomenal guide with brilliant knowledge of Zhujiajiao Water town. We loved the boat ride and enjoyed exploring the garden and temple in the town. Snow was very helpful in helping us order our dinner by the waters edge- delicious local Shanghai cuisine! We highly recommend Snow and this tour and the unique surroundings of China's Venice.
Lovely watertown tour

The tour was excellent and beyond our expectations! Snow, our tour guide, was fabulous! She was friendly, personable and full of interesting information! She made our trip very memorable and customized the tour to our liking
The whole thing overall was an experience which gave us the chance to learn, see and even taste new things.

It was really interesting. The tour guide gave us very useful presentes (fans) because it is too hot and humid during July. Snow was really kind and knowledgeable, her car was nice and she even gave us some home made candy. Our favorite part was definitely the boat ride at the River, it was really nice!
The shops around the River has a lot of local food, and we have a meal in one of the local restaurants.

Punctual, trustfull and kind guide.
Great Half day with Berlin!
NoBazinga, 09-05-2021
I booked two tours with Amazing Shanghai Trips, and both tours were flawless. Berlin was my guide for both, and she is sweet, smart, and a great conversationalist. This tour met all my expectations. It is called the Venice of China, and for good reason. This tour is very culturally enriching, and off the beaten path. Zhujiajiao is not very crowed, and is for people who enjoy learning about the history of old China.
Water Town

This is a very interesting tour to see one of the Water Towns and the local arts, crafts and food. The tour guide did an excellent job arranging the car and driver. She spoke very good English and was very knowledgeable about all the sights and history. This was a perfect change of pace from downtown Shanghai and the tour guide did an excellent job.
Good place for walking and sightseeing
