Hangzhou Private Tour from Shanghai by Bullet Train
From US$130,81

The bullet train makes Hangzhou easy to reach but it doesn’t help you get around. To truly enjoy China’s “city of heaven”, you need a guide and private transport—or, best of all, a private guide. On this custom private Hangzhou tour, work with your personal guide to tailor-make the perfect day and build the itinerary of your dreams.

What to Expect

Greet your guide at your downtown hotel lobby and catch the bullet train to Hangzhou. As you travel, discuss your Hangzhou must-sees, listen to your guide’s suggestions, and work together to design the perfect day.

On arrival, your private driver will greet you at the station. Discover Dragon Well (Longjing) tea in Meijiawu Tea Village or Longjing tea fields; or explore West Lake, a UNESCO World Heritage site. You might want to visit Lingyin Temple, Leifeng Tower, Hefang Street, the Yue Fei Mausoleum, or the Liuhe Pagoda Cultural Park.

After your tour is finished, your driver will drop you at the station, and your guide will accompany you back to your hotel.
