    I was very satisfied with the 2 days Shanghai and Suzhou tour. I had a preliminary understanding of the panorama and the culture and history of Shanghai through visiting different scenic spots in Shanghai. Humble Administrator's Garden and Tongli Water Town in Suzhou were very beautiful and many ancient buildings had been well preserved and were still very charming. I would like to recommend this tour to you if you want to know Shanghai and Suzhou.

    Although it was only two days, I enjoyed this trip. The schedule was very tight and I liked the scenic spots I visited. I appreciated the elegant buildings and long dragon walls in Yu Garden. The Humble Administrator's Garden in Suzhou was the most beautiful garden I had ever seen. What an unforgettable 2 days Shanghai and Suzhou tour!

    Although the trip was only two days, it was well organized but not rushed. We visited some famous scenic spots, such as the Bund and Humble Administrator's Garden. The tour guide gave us a professional and attractive explanation on the trip. She made the schedule, meeting time and places very clear, making sure everyone understood. We had enough time to visit the scenic spots carefully. An enjoyable 2 days Shanghai and Suzhou tour!
