Met our guide, Sabrina at our Hotel lobby who immediately wanted to know what we have already seen so that she could map out a tour agreeable to us for that day. We found her to be friendly, knowledgeable and totally delightful as she took us by cab, train and walking to see the Jade Budda temple, the Yu garden,... More

This tour delivered everything promised, and one of the best guided tour I ever had. The tour guide Janny was very helpful and took effort to explain the history and culture of the site we visit. She was super friendly, knowledgeable, had great command of English and had a good sense of humor. She did not miss a thing and... More

Probably our favorite tour of our trip. We are a family with 2 young children 11 and 9. On the days that we went sightseeing on our own we definitely felt like we didn't really get a chance to understand the history of it so in the end we wasted more time there walking around aimlessly. Very glad that in... More

This was our third visit to Shanghai. We were picked up in the hotel we stayed, very convenient. Our tour guide, Sarah, was very friendly, knowledgeable and great to have showing us around..... Zhujiajiao Watertown was the highlight of the tour and it is worth the trip--awesome. Jade Buddha Temple was next and was a very spiritual place, again, worth... More

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
