Pick you up from your hotel in Shanghai. Then drive to Zhouzhuang (2hrs driving). It is one of the most famous water townships in China and is situated in Kunshan City which is only 18 miles (30 kilometers) southeast of Suzhou. This ancient town has a history of more than 900 years old with many houses built in the Ming and Qing Dynasties.It is famed for its Twin Bridges (Shuang qiao),Fu'an Bridge,Shen House,Zhang House,Milou Tower and Chengxu Taoist Temple.

Then transfer to Suzhou (1hr driving). Visit the Tiger Hill. It is 36 meters high and its other name is Surging Sea Hill. The grounds are quite pretty and meander up to the Leaning Cloud Pagoda built over 1300 years ago. You cannot enter the pagoda, but you can enjoy and watch the pictures.

After that, visit Hanshan Temple. It is located in Maple Bridge Town in the west outskirts of Suzhou, and used to be one of the ten most famous temples in China. Hanshan Temple is forever remembered by generations of Chinese since the Song Dynasty as the inspiration of a beautiful traveler's poem.
Stay overnight in Suzhou.

Visit the Humble Administrator' Garden. There are multiple traditional Suzhou-style Chinese gardens in Suzhou, and 9 of these gardens have been inscribed in World Heritage list. The most famous and notable one is the Humble Administrator's Garden. The Humble Administrator's Garden was originally built in 1509 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). It was initially a private garden of a former government servant named Wang Xianchen. It was said that Wang was frustrated in his official career, so he intended to build a garden after retire and just do some gardening work like planting trees and cultivating vegetables there. He thought that was a simple life led by a humble man like him, hence the name of the garden.

Then transfer to Hangzhou (3 hrs driving). Visit the West Lake. There is just so much history and legends surrounding the West Lake of Hangzhou. Of all the legends, the most touching one is the love story between Bai Suzhen and Xu Xian. Exploring the entire place would probably take up a whole day or 2 half days as it is just that big. It has been critically acclaimed by scholars, artists and even emperors throughout history.
Stay overnight in Hangzhou.

Visit Lingyin Temple. It is one of the oldest Buddhist temples in China. The park is also breathtaking. Past the perfectly manicured tea groves of a picturesque country lane is the home of Hangzhou's amazing ancient Feilai Feng scenic area and Lingyin Buddhist Temple. Countless perfectly detailed reliefs, statues, and Buddha statues are carved everywhere into the mountainside amongst tall beautiful trees, caves, pathways, and a quiet stream.

Then visit Six Harmonies Pagoda, first built in 970 AD, is one of the three most famous ancient towers in Hangzhou. From the top of Six Harmonies Pagoda, you can get a view of Qiantang River and the magnificent Qiantangjiang Bridge. Going up the pagoda, each level has wall carvings and paint works on the culture and history.

Continue to visit Meijiawu Tea Plantation, also called Meijiawu Tea Cultural Village about 10 kilometers (6 miles) from downtown Hangzhou. It is an ancient village with a history of more than 600 years and famous as one of the main growing areas of Longjing tea. Amazing place to visit, lots of tea houses which can seat for a cup of tea.

After the tour, transfer you back to your hotel in Shanghai.

Traveler Reviews




I wanted to visit Beijing, China along with my wife. After long search I found a Travel Agency called Tour Travel China. They are in real good Travel Agent who helps lot to make your journey a memorable Trip in your life. They have good Tour guide who have deep knowledge of the place and explain well. They provide you a memorable Chinese traditional Lunch along with Tour. In my case I drop down my camera in the counter of China Air. I remember after I crossed Security checked I asked Airline persons but they never paid me any attention, but they helped me to find and return my camera within few days. I haven’t travelled with any other Travel Agency who goes beyond to help. If I got time to visit again I definitely will go with them and I will send my family and friends through their Travel Agency. More



The two day tour was all i needed. And they made it perfect. From the Badaling Great Wall, Changling Ming Tombs, Jade Factory and Tea Ceremony place to Forbidden City, and Summer Palace and Pearl Factory, it was wonderful. More



I booked this tour last minute and did not regret it! The cost was minimal compared to the fun I had! First we toured the Forbidden City and our guide, Leo, was wonderful! He shared great knowledge and gave us time to explore on our own. Next we went to the Jade factory and was given a short tour followed by lunch there. The dining experience was wonderful and delicious. We then headed to the Great Wall and it was amazing! Although our time there was limited to two hours, it was just almost perfect. We ended the day with a tea sampling and shopping. I couldnt have asked for a more perfect first tour of China. More

On our recent trip we visited :
1) Badaling Great Wall and the Ming Tombs with Linda
2) Forbidden City, Temple of Heaven and the Summer Palace with Jackson
3) Zhujiajao Water Town with Jason
We were well looked after and driven everywhere as part of a small bus group and met some lovely people. The local Chinese lunches were particularly nice. More



We had a 2-day tour with Tour Travel China.
The first day includes Badaling Great Wall and Changling Ming Tombs with visits to the Jade Factory and Tea Ceremony place.
The second day includes Tian An Men + Forbidden City, Tian Tan, and Summer Palace with visits to the Pearl Factory and Bao Shu Tang where we got a nice foot massage for only 20 Kuai. 
The itinerary and tour service, especially the first day with David were absolutely amazing! He is a great tour guide, with excellent command in English as well as a nice personality.
The second day with Paul was a little bit too fast for our liking. He spoke too fast and a little bit unclear, and seem like almost too in rush for anything so I think that could be improved in the future. The meal in our second day was amazing though! Delicious!
Thank you to you and all TTC team for helping our trip in Beijing much easier! More



Enjoyed a hiking day trip with Tour Travel China to the Great Wall at Jinshangling. This is a further away section but much quieter and definitely worth the extra travel. I visited Mitanyu previously which was very busy.
Two hikes were available 7km and 13km. I took the 7km which was still quite challenging. Spent 2.5 hours on the wall. It’s an amazing experience.
After hiking we had a late lunch at a local restaurant and then headed back to Beijing.
There is no shopping, although there are a few hawkers on the wall.
Make sure you take lots of water and sunscreen with you as it can get quite hot in Summer.
The tour guide and driver were excellent and can recommend this trip.
The travel time is quite long so bring a tablet and headphones to keep you entertained More



We had a great 3-day tour. Most of it was a walking tour that required stamina. The cost was a good deal that included 3 lunch meals.
The tour guides Yoyo, Irish and Vik were very knowledgable about their history. Their English was good, but at times could not understand their accent. 
The Lunch for the 3 days were good but on the 2nd and 3rd day, we were brought to the same restaurant. The service in the Great wall restaurant was good. Food was prepared on the table when we arrived. Unlike in the 2nd restaurant, food was served one at a time, hence time-consuming.
The mandatory stops, total of 5 in 3days: Jade factory, Tea factory, Pearl factory, Silk factory, Foot massage were informative but the time spent there could have been added for picture-taking in the tourist places.
The 24-hour hotline was veey helpful for queries.
Overall, Tour travel China met our travel expectations. More
