Suzhou Gardens private tour - Ruby is a gem!

I highly recommend the Suzhou garden tour. Everything was managed very smoothly, and began with or tour guide Ruby meeting us at the train station. She was very professional, courteous, and knowledgeable throughout the entire day.

The gardens were beautiful, and Ruby provided a lot of context and insight into their design and composition.

Overall a great experience!
