      Shanghai Trippest Mini Group Tour with Kris thx
      After COVID the tourism in China started awakening with its confusing things. In many places in China you will still struggle with this. But in Shanghai we really felt differently. From the first minutes of the tour when we met our guide Kris we felt relief and pleasure what you were expecting from the tour like that. Kris speaks excellent English and you enjoy every moment of the tour even all other aspects about life in Shanghai. Shortly we felt like we met an old friend and just having fun with him. Shanghai Trippest was also helpful after trip providing customers support services like the manager of the Trippest Niko who arranged tickets for the other not in Shanghai attraction.

      Excellent Guide, Smooth and Memorable Tour
      Our mini tour was a memorable experience. Despite the cold weather, our driver and tour guide made sure we were all taken cared of. We were dropped off and picked up conveniently at spots where the rain wasn't too troublesome. Our tour guide, Daniel Shao, handled and executed the tour flawlessly, even customizing the tour to accommodate our minor requests. Also, he took care of our communication problem via phone with other merchants even after the tour. We had a great time and it was worth all the rain pounding on us. The history, places, people, food and mood were just perfect.

      Winter in Zhujiaojiao
      We went to this water town on a rainy winter day. The place is beautiful. We visited Kezhi garden, a century-old pharmacy, and small alley shops. It was easy to walk around because there were only a few people. Our tour guide, Daniel Shao, made the trip worthwhile. He knows the history very well. He’s very accommodating and goes way beyond what a tour guide should do. He was even helpful with Chinese translation even after the tour was over. This is the highlight of our Shanghai trip.

      I wish the fare had been a little lower.
      I went to Shanghai for a four day trip with my family. We took a big taxi from Shanghai Pudong International Airport to the Bund. We could easily find the driver at the arrival gate. He did not understand English, but drove very carefully, so we felt very comfortable.

      Mini group day tour met all expectations. A day immersed in local culture and spectacular sights.
      Our mini tour consisted of Jan and I, one other guest, our tour guide (Ding) and the driver. We booked this tour through China Highlights, along with Shanghai transfers and a two day (overnight) Beijing tour from our cruise ship in Tianjin. Everything we did with China Highlights was brilliant. In Shanghai, the vehicle was comfortable, though getting into the back seat was tricky for David our fellow traveller. A perfect day, our guide was on time, and getting the small group together took little time. The tour of Shanghai was an eye-opener, having not visited China for over 20 years the modern development was hard to believe. Strolling the Bund looking across the water to "New Shanghai" was spectacular. Everything was so clean and orderly. The sights from the tower were amazing. The water village was a contrast, an impression of "old China" on display. Ding was most informative. Lunch in an authentic local restaurant was generous. Our driver knew all the backroads, in heavy traffic he somehow managed to get us home on time. An excellent tour that didn't miss a beat.

      My flight arrived 55 minutes early and we got through the airport quick and my driver was there waiting for us. Always a great relief. Professional driver.

      Shanghai transfers and day tour
      Trippest was an efficient, prompt and totally reliable organization for my visit to Shanghai. Tracy Tang arranged the three bookings ( port and airport transfers and day tour of city) in a professional and personable manner. Communication and even short notice time changes for pick up and departure posed no problem. All was handled promptly and easily. The guide, Louis, was equally admirable. She gave complete and enthusiastic information, in very good English and with a smile and an affable nature. She and the driver were in perfect synch on pick-ups and directions. I feel Trippest and the entire organization are excellent and give top-notch service at reasonable prices. A.King.

      Easy Transfers
      We used Trippest for transfers from the cruise port to our hotel in Shanghai and then, later, from the hotel to the airport. Both times the drivers showed up early, were very pleasant and drove safely, getting us to our destinations with no problems. Will use Trippest again the next time we are in China!

      Same day changes
      I use them to go to the airport and back from my hotel and had to make a change a day early. This meant I needed a driver within 1 hour.... they were able to make the changes and everything was amazing! Great to be able to message someone if you ever needed help!!

      Great Guide, Great Tour
      Since we were the only 2 people on the Mini-Group tour that day & it was a Public Holiday, our Tour Guide Catherine suggested we do The Bund & Financial Centre first to avoid the crowds & heat later it the day. It was a great recommendation as the morning was easy to walk around The Bund as it was not too crowded & we skipped all the queues getting to 100th floor of the SWFC to see the magnificent views of Shanghai. Despite the Public Holiday traffic, we still made it to the Water Village in plenty of time to explore the Garden before having lunch & then continuing our tour of the Village. Catherine was an excellent tour guide & ambassador for Shanghai, she was extremely knowledgable & had a very pleasant way of sharing her information. We had a great day & thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

      Wonderful journey
      First, please allow me the honor of praising our tour guide William. He was extremely knowledgeable, well versed on Shanghai local history and very considerate. We took the two Watertown Tour. Both water towns were amazing. They were very different from one another which was amazing. The first no had anyone living there anymore and was mostly a tourist area, with that being said the town itself kept a lot of the original atmosphere. It was nice to learn all the different information. William imparted his personal knowledge about everything that has ever occurred in the town, including how it was one of the main thoroughfare for good going from the farm community to the larger communities. The visit to the personal residence of one of the people was phenomenal with the different rooms that were used for different reasons. The second water town is still used primarily by the locals. The very moment we stepped into one of the walkways we saw fish and shrimp hanging on lines and in tables, available for people to come and purchase for a ready meal. It instantly made us aware that the town was not strictly built around tourism. There’s very little about this tour that I would or even could suggest an improvement on.

      Zhujiajiao Water town and Huangpu River night cruise
      We were picked up promptly at the time arranged. Nini (our guide) was very cheerful and very informative. Her English was good and we appreciated her local knowledge. We really enjoyed the water town itself. Despite what I had read, the day we visited the village was not over-run with tourists even though it was a fine day. The local shops obviously cater for the tourist trade, but the shop owners live in the town (often above the shop) so this made it feel more authentic. Our visit to the silk factory was informative, but more time was spent there than necessary. The process and products were fascinating. The Chinese style dinner was tasty - at a restaurant in a bustling Chinese food precinct. We were in a corner that had storage shelves beside, but we enjoyed the cuisine. We did think we would be dining on the river, but this was not the case. The river cruise is very pretty with all the buildings around the Bund lit up. It took less than an hour, but was a great experience. Nini left us after the cruise and the driver returned us to our hotels. The only real negative of the day was the condition of the mini-van. It was older and had a lot of major squeaks and rattles, not enough seat belts, and very poor suspension. There were 3 of us in the back seat and by the end of the evening we had sore backs from the rough ride. That aside, I would recommend the tour as being good value for money and a great experience.

    We had a great time with a leisurely walk through the streets of Zhouzhuang. It got a little crowded at times and I was more than once thankful I was in a small tour group of 6. I don't think I would have coped with a having to follow the large tour group leader with a flag and jostle to hear what they were saying. Jinxi did not have the history of Zhouzhuang but was quieter but you got a better insight into the life of the people who made their living off the lake. I enjoyed seeing the contrast and seeing both if I had to make a choice out of the two I would pick Zhouzhuang

    Meant be a group tour, but it turned out to be a private tour as there was no other participant - what a bonus!

    It was snowing on the day of our tour, which is very rare in the Shanghai area. This made our tour little difficult, but the snow made everything look very pretty! It was freezing cold but the scenery made all the efforts worthwhile.

    Our guide, Kris was very good, so was the driver. The vehicle was new and clean.

    I highly recommend the tour to people who may not have much time in Shanghai, but want to see something totally different from the Big City metropolitan scenary.

    My bf and I went on holiday to China and chose this tour based on reviews and I'm glad we went with this tour. It was slow season so it was just us two with tour guide Andy. he was very informative and answered all our history questions. The water towns were amazing to walk through and Andy helped out so much when we shopped with the local people. I would definitely recommend.

    Enjoyed a trip back in time to visit two different era fishing towns. Both beautiful and distinct. Candy, the guide, provided great information and picked a delightful canal-side local restaurant for a tasty relaxing lunch. Great way to take a break from the busy modern Shanghai and soak up a refreshing trip back in time.

    Our guide Sophie Lee led a small group tour to the two water towns; it was very exciting and knowledgeable and very enjoyable. The fishing village with the river boat tour was excellent and I'm sure I saw the same in an early James Bond movie. Lunch was very enjoyable; we would recommend this tour and Sophie Lee to future tourists; it was a very enjoyable day and tour; thankyou
