Definitely worthwhile when visiting Suzhou but I found the canal tour to be too short and it only went through the wide part of the canal. Good views of the city wall but I expected to see the narrow canals.

It is a must!!1We took a ride on the canal on a dragon boat and it reminded us of Venice. Lots of beautiful colonial homes line the canals.The city itself is also calm after a busy tour in Shanghai.
