This tour with Bill was great. He organised everything really well from the train to Hangzhou to the cab rides in between places. He was the right balance of knowledgeable and chatty without it feeling constant or too much. The city itself was incredible and being able to see 3 different parts of it (temple, tea plantation and West Lake) made for a very diverse day for the eyes and ears. As Bill had organised cabs everywhere , there wasn’t loads of walking involved and it felt like a very relaxing day.

Bill's tour to Hangzhou was amazing! It was a great opportunity for me to visit this place, and I was so lucky 'cause I have my own private guide (there were no persons on this day except me). Bill know a lot of information about Hangzhou and a whole China,so It was very interesting to listen to his stories! I highly recommend it to other tourists' cause you don't have a chance to go to the hills and the tea plantation in the village by your own feet, it's just impossible. But Bill will do anything to help you feel comfortable and peacefully!

Bill is a wonderful guide. From start to finish he took care of all logistics. He shared so much historical information as well as current information about China. We could ask him anything. He is very personable and we were taken to places that felt private and non-crowded. He had so much detailed information about the sites. Wonderful person.
