We arrived from Beijing and met Janny as soon as we had dropped our bags at the hotel. She is a kniwledgable and passionate guide who actually grew up in the area that we walked around. The tour didn't cover a large distance but gave great insights into Chinese history and culture.

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.
