We are passionate about local life and explore city off the beaten path. As we have been living in China for many years, and we visited Shanghai a few times already. Shanghai Pathways put together an itinerary based on our needs ensuring that we see the real Shanghai, eat authentic local food, and feel like we have been a participant... More

We really enjoyed our private one day tour with Janny. We particularly wanted to see "old Shanghai" (there's no getting away from the new version of the city...), which can be difficult to find when you don't know the city or speak the language. We got a complete immersion! The local market was quite something, which photos don't really capture.... More

This company's walking tour is a must do!!! When my husband and I arrived in Shanghai it was hard to understand from our guide books, we try to find out which places we should see first and how we gonna get around to see them. Luckily, I booked this tour before we got there and so our trip was not... More

I really enjoyed my tour of the French Concession with Janny. Although I have been to Shanghai many times before, Janny showed me things I had never seen. More importantly, her breadth of knowledge about Chinese culture helped me to see things in a new way and understand the context of the places we visited. I highly recommend Shanghai Pathways.

We spent the day at Zhujiajiao, a beautiful watertown about an hour drive from Shanghai. Mary was our guide and we had a private driver as well. The day was lovely - we walked around the town, it's markets, saw a beautiful garden area and went on a boat ride along the canal. Mary was a terrific guide with very... More

I greatly enjoyed spending two full days in Shanghai touring with Janny. She came highly recommended by good friends and met or exceeded all my expectations. She tailored an itinerary to meet my interests including street food, dumplings, noodles, wedding market, bird and cricket market, wet market, tea room, archive museum, street market and more. Her recommendations for a hotel... More

When we arrived in Shanghai, i remembered that i hadn't made contact with the company regarding our meeting place so i called the company quite late one afternoon and the phone was answered immediately. They sent me very clear instructions by e-mail immediately. Our guide, Janny, was waiting for us at our meeting place as arranged. She spoke perfect English... More

We had a lovely afternoon with Mary from this company recently. We booked a four hour tour. We were met at our hotel after a very professional booking service. We were shown highlights like the Bund area, Peace Hotel, Old City, Confucius Temple, Peoples Square and the French concessions area. Also she pointed out some ideal shopping areas. All in... More

I recently had the pleasure of being guided by Janny, the owner of the company. She has tons of energy, speaks excellent English and understands exactly what you want and will deliver. I also went to great restaurants which she selected based on my preferences. While I didn't want a real dive, I did want to experience a high end... More
