What a wonderful evening! A delicious dinner at a very popular Chinese restaurant, where we could try the local salted duck specialty. Then, a night cruise on a dragon boat, to see all the lights and bridges on the river, and a tour through the Confucius Temple. The whole time, Alana and Fred made sure that we had a great table at the restaurant, ordered good food, and got tickets to help us to get to the front of all the lines. With almost 25 years' experience as a guide, Fred is very well-traveled, and had lots of history to share. And, Alana made sure we were well-informed about all of the details and helped to make sure we were so comfortable, every step of the way! We even ended up walking a little through the old town, and got ice cream! Our driver was terrific too. Such an easy, relaxing and enjoyable experience. One of our best nights in China, even with a little rain. Highly recommend this tour for a fun night in Nanjing!


Absolutely worth it! We were in Nanjing with a layover of 29 hours, so we booked this tour without expecting too much. I was wrong, this tour is amazing, exceeded my expectations, the tour guide Ava is just great, smart and sweet. The driver was so punctual and helpful. We will be back some day for longer time. Thank you!!! 100% recommended.
