It’s so amazing to visit Shanghai and thanks to our great tour guide, Lily. Her service was excellent (it included a spacious van, driver, expert tour guide, flexible arrangements). She responded promptly, double checked with me my hotel address (my hotel name are different from map and booking info), and sent me a tour remind-note every day with specific time, tour guide name & mobile number. I just wished I had more time to spend with Linda, our other tour guide, who showed us beautiful Northern SHanghai at night with dinner and a wonderful river boat cruise. I am sure I will come back to Shanghai again. It’s such wonderful experience.

I must admit I wasn’t big on signing-up for a ‘formal’ tour of SH with a tour company. But, I am so glad my wife convinced me to go with Shanghai Lily Tours. Our tour was modified to fit our need, and continued flexible even after we arranged the original tour specifics. Lily showed us a great time in Shanghai, and all for a very reasonable price. We got a car (actually, a van) and driver, and an expert tour guide who knew SH like the back of her hand. Having a guide who can toggle back & forth between Mandarin and English, and who know SH .. its people, its tradition and culture will make your stay in SH so complete. For all you tour naysayers … do it. You will not be disappointed with Lily. Ask for Lily.

No doubt in my mind that by having a professional tour guide to show us around SH, showing us a mix of SH landmarks, with detailed explanations of how each left its mark on China, Shanghai and the world. Without Linda, our guide, we will never know so much of interesting stories of Bund buildings. While at the same time Linda exposes us to everyday life in SH by way of Old Town and the exquisite street food available all across SH.

We really enjoyed this tour. My husband and I took a Westerdam cruise to Shanghai. We booked this tour 4 months ago. I didn’t realize there was more than one port in Shanghai, until Lily, the tour operator, contacted me. She helped us check the port address. She quickly responded to my email. We were lucky to have a great guide, named Summer – always smiling and very friendly. She made sure we had a great time. She explained the ways of Chinese life I never realized. She told us of many cultural traditions and daily routines. Summer took us to a small restaurant for lunch. It was a great choice on three counts: 1) the local people liked it, shown by the fact that it was a little crowded; 2) the food was very tasty; and 3) it was very inexpensive – for 3 of us, it cost only $18!!! The only thing is, it’s a bit difficult to use chopsticks with soup; and we were the only two foreigners in the restaurant. We noticed some people were watching us…. and smiling…. But that’s ok, we were fine making others happy. We noticed most people here were quite friendly. We had a good time in Shanghai. Thank you, Summer and Lily!
