I wasn't sure when I booked this 4-hour tour for my wife and I whether it would be part of a larger group, and it was the first time I had used Get Your Guide. In the event, we got a private tour with Tommy guiding us, and a driver and car for the duration. We were due to meet them at 12.30, but when we texted the company from our train into Hangzhou to check meeting point, they immediately asked for train details, and Tommy met us as we arrived before 11.00 ... and proceeded to entertain us till 17.30, so we can't fault the value for money! He crammed in a West Lake walk and boat trip, a drive to the tea plantations (with a super lunch reconmendation), description of tea cultivation, visit to a tasting centre (no pressure, though we did buy some green tea) ... followed by a walking tour of a beautiful lakeside garden, and city market streets, then he left us at the venue for a Night Show we had booked.

My guide Tommy was great, and knowledgeable. The tour was comfortable, from the moment was picked up by my hotel. I really enjoyed the Longjing tea experience.
