After pickup from your hotel or port, drive to the 400-year-old water town of Zhujiajiao, with its charming bridges and canals.

Your private guide will accompany you around the town. Start with a boat ride to get into the pace of life, then stroll through ancient alleyways to admire landmarks like the Fangsheng Bridge, first built around 300 years ago, and Zhujiajao Kezhi Garden. After you’ve wandered and photographed your fill, your guide will also recommend a restaurant for lunch.

After lunch, visit some local shops with your guide on hand to help discuss the price. Finally, they’ll drop you back at your hotel or port.

Explore the charming water town of Zhujiajiao the easy way, with a private driver-guide, on a trip that includes a boat ride, a guided tour, and a visit to local shops.
