Another amazing trip with Nancy as our guide to Hangzhou. We had booked this for two of us but 8 others from our tour party managed to get on the trip with us. The trip was very well organised and once again Nancy looked after our needs so we'll. She planned the trip with us and her organisation of transport tickets and tourist spot visits was very well handled and we felt well looked after and supported by Nancy all the way. The bullet train ride visit to tea plantation lunch at the plantation our visit to Lingying Temple and the boat trip on West Lake was amazing. The Impression westlake show was really spectacular! we were amazed by the location, production, everything! worth our trip, time, and money! Thank you Nancy from all my group for taking such good care of us and teaching us so much about this city.
