It was a small group, which meant more direct contact with the tour guide. We walked down the Food Market and had a bunch of food based on the guide's suggestion, plus we got to try whatever else we wanted! We let her pick and order menu items so that we could try everything and everything we tried was great.... More

Tour was first class! Janny, the guide, was extremely knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to give details about the area, show us around, answer questions and make sure we had a fabulous experience.

Transport and driver were excellent. The Guide (Frank) was... More

Our tour guide for the day was Judy. It's true that the trip by bus is very long, 2.5 hours, but it worth it. We thoroughly enjoyed it and the scenery is magnificent especially West Lake. Tea Village is another recommended experience with genuine tea and reasonably cheap compared to central Shanghai prices. I loved learning everything about the different... More

She was very engaging and entertaining even at quiet moments during the tour. She clearly enjoyed being a guide and it seemed more than just a job to her. We were given an... More

If you have just a day at your disposal in Shanghai, this is the tour to take. It gives you a fairly complete and enjoyable view of Shanghai city and a chance to learn about local history. Our tour guide was unbelievable - her name is Linda. She is very knowledgable and the commentary was fascinating. The places selected for... More
