We had a 11 hour layover in Shanghai on our way home from Asia, so I booked JENNY'S custom tour. Our guide Peggy was fantastic! Her English was perfect, the best of all the guides we had on our 3 weeks in Asia.
She met us at the arrivals in the airport and we were escorted in a beautiful car with leather seats and lots of legroom into the city.
Highlights were the renovated China town and beautiful bonsai garden, the panorama view of downtown and the Confucius school.
I highly, highly recommend Jenny's tours!
