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

My wife and I have spoken many times since our trip about how much we enjoyed our time with Janny from Shanghai Pathways. It was a perfect experience to see the real Shanghai and learn so much about Chinese culture - we will never forget the experience of sipping tea in the local market, visiting the local's home, the streets...

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

Our request was to do a walking tour of local sites and scene of shanghai along with a bit of history - Janny met all of our requests. Janny is one of the best guides I have ever had and her knowledge was fantastic. She showed us a side to Shanghai I would not have otherwise seen. I would absolutely... More

Janny took us to a wonderful little tea shop where we had a master class with the owner Jake. My girlfriend knows quite a lot about tea and I'm a total beginner but Janny was able to cater for both our levels of knowledge and the session was informative and very enjoyable. Our session was based around Oolong Teas and... More

We were fortunate to spend a magnificent travel day with our guide, Janny, on an Alternative Shanghai Tour. We asked to visit local markets, neighborhoods, the Jewish Museum and neighborhood and the hidden corners of the city. We had a very amazing day!
