This was the best experience. I booked a private tour for the end of a long work week before our flights. We saw all the off the beaten path sites. Our guides were amazing and took great care to explain all that we were seeing and kept everyone in the group engaged.

A very pleasant two hours with a friendly, polite guide who spoke excellent English. The Museum is focused on Chinese art and the guide helped me to understand it better.

This was a fantastic tour!!! Mary was our guide and was phenomenal. She is very knowledgeable, personable, and funny. My husband cracks jokes constantly and by mid morning,Mary was cracking them right back at him. We had a lot of fun with her. The private tour was the way to go. You could completely customize it to your liking at the beginning of the day and even change and request things as you went along. We were pretty zonked by the end of the tour as it was our last tour of our 3 week trip, so, Mary arranged a couple of semi relaxing activities for us and then even arranged for us to be dropped off in a little area where we could eat, shop, and bar hop instead of dropping us back at our hotel. She made sure we were completely comfortable with the location and how to get back to our hotel before leaving us, but gave us her number if we had any issues. This was a great tour experience and I highly recommend Mary as a guide!!!

I enjoyed this walking tour with Mary. She had excellent English and shared a lot of interesting information about the area we covered. It was a good way to see and learn about a part of Old Shanghai.

Had a 19 hour layover in Shanghai and decided to book this tour. Hadn’t been advised it was a public holiday and the roads would be busy... took much longer to get there than anticipated and it was packed with locals. But our guide was helpful and it was a good group, 2 Germans and a Brazilian girl; all English speaking which was good. We did get a lot of attention from the Chinese, lots were taking pictures and videos of us 😬 We did get a feel for China and a lovely local lunch that was delicious.. we couldn’t have found a place like it without a guide.. also the guides can get to the front of lines for tickets which did save a huge amount of time. The tour was 10 hours with all the travelling.
