Janny is one of the best tour guides I've ever used. I gave her a list of experiences I wanted to have to make sure I left Shanghai with an understanding of the city and what it was like to live there. She took me on a tour of the morning markets, lunch at a local restaurant, a chance to... More

We booked a day tour with Janny on June 2014. it was absolutely wonderful, and had a great value for us, being able to tour around with a local guide, speaking the language, and who could explain us and give us some answers for things we didn't understand. The service was very efficient, punctual, and very friendly, and our guide... More

I contacted Shanghai Pathways less than a week before our requested Christmas day tour, and Janny was able to arrange our tour with Sabrina. We loved having a private tour because it was really flexible having a car/driver and guide and not having to do what others in the group wanted. The initial plan was just to spend the day... More

We contacted Shanghai Pathway on short notice to provide a full day tour of Shanghai. Fortunately, Janny was available and we were excited because we had read so many great reviews of her from previous folks. We were not disappointed! She was delightful, allowing me to see everything I wanted to despite it being harder in the light limited winter,... More

Jany from Shanghai Pathways took us on a walking tour of back streets in an old neighbourhood of Shanghai. Jany's intimate knowledge of the area gave us a real insight into the daily life of the locals who still live in traditional housing. We were fortunate to be the only people on this tour so it was great to have... More

Janny is an exceptionally good guide. The tour exploring Jewish Shanghai - its history and what remains - is excellent. Janny's approach is thoughtful and intelligent, her explanations are clear and straightforward without being dumbed down. She has a wide range of entertaining anecdotes to tell, personalising the subject but remaining completely relevant. Janny is attentive and was aware of... More

I used Shanghai Pathways many times while living in China and I have also referred this company to over a dozen people for them to use. Everyone has always been more than satisfied.

Your only mistake in booking Janny would be waiting too long and finding her already booked. And if that happens, postpone your trip to a date on which she is available. No kidding. This woman is intelligent, knowledgeable, well organized, perceptive and attentive to your needs and interests. (Although I had booked her 10 months before our trip, she remembered... More

I was in Shanghai recently on a business trip and wanted very much to see Jewish Shanghai. I was disappointed in the least. Janny Chyn herself gave the tour. She is knowledgeable, intelligent and a very nice person. I would recommend her tours highly.

The highlight of my Shanghai experience. I was very fortunate to have a private tour - I felt like a queen for the day! If you are in Shanghai and want something to do outside the city, l strongly recommend this tour. The boat ride at the water village was definitely my favourite part of the tour. It is quite...
