What to Expect
Your tour begins with a pickup from your hotel in central Hangzhou/Hangzhou Railway Station. Travel in an air-conditioned vehicle and, if you have specific interests, your guide can adapt the schedule to suit your needs. First stop is a UNESCO World Heritage Site: West Lake. Enjoy a boat ride and then visit Guo’s Garden (Villa), which has a backdrop of teahouses and pavilions. Lunchtime is a highlight—visit a tea farmer’s house and learn how to cook local delicacies (if the all-inclusive option is selected). Next up is Meijiawu Tea Village, which is famous for being the origin of Longjing green tea. After tasting some, visit a bamboo-lined path in Yunqi. The last stop of the day is Qinghefang Old Street. Learn about Old Hangzhou, see historic buildings, and go shopping. The day ends with a return trip back to your starting point.

Marin was a very good guide; knowledgeable, spoke good English, friendly and patient with the 4 of us. It was perfect to start the day on West Lake when hardly anyone was there; peaceful, quiet and interesting. The tasting and visit to the tea plantation was a highlight as well.
