Shanghai Zhujiajiao Watertown Excursion Reviews

Glide aboard your boat through the interwoven canals of historic Zhujiajiao and take in the distinctive style of its bridges, including the dragon-adorned Fangsheng Bridge, built in 1571.
This was a lovely little town, a mini venice with canals and gonola type boats.

We spent a wonderful day with Apple in Shanghai! She was delightful, informative, considerate. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Shanghai and was constantly explaining the details of everything we saw. Our tour of ZhuJiaJao was great – enjoyed the boat ride and walking through the old town shops. Afterwards we went to the silk factory to see how silk is produced. She took us for an outstanding lunch of Chinese food and wrote down the names of each different kind of food for us. She was an expert at organizing the day so that we avoided the crowds and saw everything we had planned on. In the afternoon we went to the top of the Shanghai Financial Tower, rode the Maglev Train, and were back to the ship even a bit early. We loved every minute of the tour. Apple graciously took pictures of us several times through the day. She was very personable and spoke excellent English. Our driver was also very efficient at getting us around and drove very safely.

Loved this tour - it was our favorite, even thought it was a very long day.

Loved this tour - it was our favorite, even thought it was a very long day. Supposed to be 8 hours, but heavy traffic turned it into a 10 hour day. Lunch was included and it was delicious!.

I am afraid I missed something of what the tour guide said so I took off on my own. When we arrived at Watertown the guide left passengers to go to the restrooms first but as I didn't need this I tried to find him to know what time to be back at the bus. I did not find him however, and since I needed to find an ATM I set off on my own. Found the ATM, poked around in shops and had a local meal and started heading back to the bus. On my way I was tapped on the shoulder by a local policeman who spoke very little English. Apparently I was late getting back to the bus so they were sent to find me! A passenger gave a description so this wasn't too difficult but it was an interesting experience. Advice to tour leaders: Tell people all of what they need to know BEFORE allowing folks off the bus! I had fun, learned a lot and mixed with local shop owners so missed a boat ride which I didn't know about but all in all I would definitely recommend this tour. Lunch (late because of me) was delicious and a visit to the silk factory was very interesting although it cost me extra money since I couldn't resist buying some fabric! Read Less

Raining. Very crowded so it was impossible to stay together. Husband with rollator found it very difficult - stairs and cobbled streets at Suzhou

Really enjoyable! Lots of local market flavour. Can easily spend 3 hours here. Lunch and souvenirs were very cheap and authentic. A litle difficult to navigate for people with disabilities but worth it. We took a water gondola back to parking lot from the end of the village. Known as the "Venice of Asia". Read Less

This was a unique tour and well worth doing. I think the highlight for me was the Silk Worm factory, that was amazing.

It's far from Shanghai, but we had already visited Shanghai before.
Sail Date: March 2015
It's far from Shanghai, but we had already visited Shanghai before. The water town is interesting, charming but very crowded as most tourist spots in China. You could buy your heart out with souvenirs and unusual food items.
