The guide was waiting in the lobby on time. With a comfortable car we drove to the West Lake. A tour with a ship on the lake enabled us to see the many treasures. Then we drove to the famous Buddhist temple to admire the caves with the figures cut out of the stone and the big temple area. We received a freshly prepared lunch from a local family in the tea village on a terrace, overlooking the tea plantation, just a few km from the West Lake. then we visited the green tea plantation. We received very interesting informations about green tea. In the late afternoon we visited the traditional old town. It was a really interesting tour. The guide spoke perfect English.

Our guide Tommy showed us many interesting attractions in Hangzhou and shared a great deal of history and information about life in the area. He was open and very helpful!
