          Relaxing Water town tour
          Bella was a great guide for my mom and I through Zhujiajiao Water Town and our look at the highest building in China as well as the city skyline from across the water. She offered us great information on each place she took us. She allowed my mom and I enough time to enjoy each area on our own, and when she was with us she always helped us with any dealings. She also made sure to provide information to us about each location we were going to on the drive over. Overall my mom and I really enjoyed Bella as our guide and hope she can give us another tour when we return to China in the future!

          Perfect way to spend a day off
          Excellent tour. Xin was a fantastic guide from start to finish. Would’ve never found this area of Shanghai and had this experience without her help. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting

          Great boat tour of the Huangpu river in Shanghai.
          Our tour with Kalvin was extraordinary( 5 stars!)!! He was very informative, kind, open and warm. We had a great time with him. The boat ride was great but his descriptions were very interesting. We took a similar boat ride 10 years ago but this one was outstanding. Dinner was also great- at a Redtaurant specializing in halal food from NW China—Xinjiang Probince style.. Mr. Huang was a very good driver and we loved the car. Thanks for seamless arrangements. Well worth the price!

          Get to know Shanghai
          My family and I took a tour with Snow around Shanghai. She picked us up from our hotel and showed us around Shanghai. Snow was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely would recommend doing this tour for getting to know Shanghai.

          Fantastic half day tour out into the suburbs of Shanghai
          My friends and I are really glad we booked this tour to this historic water town of Zhujiajao on the outskirts of Shanghai. We had a great time exploring and learning the stories that our great guide Snow shared with us throughout our tour. We opted for the afternoon tour that started when Snow met us in our Shanghai hotel at 1:30 pm. The drive out to Zhujiajao was about 1 hour. Our transportation van was amazing and comfortable, our driver Chen did an excellent job getting us there and back. The lunch included was delicious, the boat tour was fun, and overall exploring the water town was great. Big thanks once again to our guide Snow and our driver Chen for leading us on this half day excursion! We loved it ! - Nolan

          Amazing Hangzhou made doubly amazing by a good tour guide
          Caroline is a very cheerful and happy person, bringing smiles and joys throughout the trip. She is very nice and polite not only to us but to the drivers and the people we met during the trip. She is easy going and easy to talk to. She is also very knowledgeable, sharing with us a lot of information about the places and things. She is caring and making sure that we are well taken care of, looking out for us, for eg making sure we are seated at the right seats, asking us if we are tired, if we need a drink, be careful of wet floor and steps etc. We are grateful for her services and help and guidance today. The tour to Hangzhou as amazing as it can get by itself, can only be made more wonderful if every tour operator has a leader like her.

          Great experience
          The tour was a good time. We went to Shanghai tower, followed by Yu garden, then we drove to the water town, road a boat, had lunch then went to a temple and another garden along with souvenir shopping, then finished with driving back to the Bund and walking along the water. May was great at providing fun historical facts throughout and the process from start to finish was very seamless.

          Amazing experience
          Caroline was really amazing and the excursion was interesting and exciting. Caroline's English was very easy to understand which we appreciated a lot because we are not native-speakers and sometimes we have difficulties with understanding other guides. And the driver was great. I am anxious and usually I feel uncomfortable when another person drives a car, but at this excursion I felt safe because the driver was very careful.

          Water town perfection
          We had the most amazing day with Berlin our guide. She showed us around these two lovely picture perfect water towns, answered our endless questions and was generous with her personal stories. We learned, laughed, rode boats, ate great food, dressed up traditional style for some awesome selfies while being seamlessly chaperoned. A truly great day out. Thank you so much Berlin.

          Exceptional Half Day Private Tour to Zhujiajiao Water Town
          Our experience with the Half Day Private Tour to Zhujiajiao Water Town was absolutely fantastic! Everything was perfect from start to finish. The hotel pickup was punctual and convenient, making the beginning of our trip stress-free. The tour itself was well-organized and allowed us to explore the beautiful Zhujiajiao Water Town thoroughly. Our tour guide, Xin, was wonderful- knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. Xin provided us with fascinating insights into the history and culture of the area, enhancing our experience significantly. The boat ride was a highlight, offering stunning views and a peaceful break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Overall, this tour exceeded our expectations in every way. Highly recommended for anyone looking to explore Zhujiajiao Water Town with a professional and engaging guide.

          Best tour in Shanghai
          We did this tour on our third day in Shanghai and can't stress enough how good it was. We were not prepared for our guide, 68 year old Xin, her knowledge and seriously cool grandma energy! It would have been a pleasure to just have lunch with her, let alone be given such an informative and insightful tour. Would highly recommend.

        It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning. Got to see locals start their day in Fu Xing Park - dancing, playing badminton and poker, singing, etc. Then visited the old alley ways, the Yu garden the Temple Jade Buddha. Also got to taste authentic fried dumplings. Alana was a great guide, very knowledgeable and friendly .. and she took some good pictures of me and my visit to Shanghai.

        I did the private 4-hour photography tour with Charlie. He was incredible! He picked me up at the hotel, then we set out on our tour in a clean, nice van with a super nice driver. We visited Yuyuan market & garden, the former French Concession, the downtown skyscrapers including the Oriental Pearl, Xintiandi, as well as through some of the Old Shanghai alleyways. Charlie isn't a photographer, but he knew all the great locations for the best photos. My favorite photos were from the Yuyuan garden & the French Concession. If you're considering this tour, definitely do it. The tour was at the perfect pace (not too slow, not too fast), and I know that I saw much, much more than I would've been able to see on my own.

        I love Allanas tour service. As we agreed on they picked me up on the hotel lobby and talked about the tour flexibility and setting things on my own pace. Since i only have limited time on my layover i wanted to fast track and get good photos to the most important places in shanghai. Allana is all you can ask for on a tour like this, shes very professional, informative and most of all takes very good photos of me on every tourist site we go to. I recommend this more than 5 stars.

        Fantastic service from the team that started when I found I had accidentally organised for the wrong date - immediately rearranged and a guide came straight to my hotel.

        My guide, Berlin, was great - took great care to understood what I wanted from the tour and tailored it accordingly and made it really personal. Berlin’s English was superb and great level of information whilst still making it feel relaxed as if you were out with friends. Berlin also gave me some fantastic tips and advice for the rest of my trip.

        The tour itself was fantastic - saw so much more than I could have ever seen by myself with a car on hand.

        Highly recommended if you are either wanting to get to grips with the city quickly or are only in town for a short visit.

        Interesting tour around some very different areas of Shanghai. My guide, Alana was very helpful and knowledgable in terms of the city, people and the history. She took me to some local places that I would not have found myself.
