We had a free day in Shanghai on a 12-day tour we took with Chinatours.com and wanted to take a walking tour. Prior to the trip, we found the Web site (and other Trip Advisor reviews) for Shanghai Pathways and found several interesting tours. We contacted owner Janny and asked how we would string together three of the walking tours, and she suggested that we go ahead and just book her for the day. Boy, are we glad we did! She customized our walking tour for our interest. We zipped around by subway, walking and taxi and covered more in that one day than we could have in a week on our own, seeing old and new, learning about history and current events and culture, ate wonderful food, were shown beautiful vistas for the best pictures, Most memorable was a visit to a 250-year old home and meeting the owner. Janny efficiently got us from Point A to Point B, made sure we saw the highlights and understood what we were seeing and why it was significant, went beyond the normal "history talk" to make it poignant and personal. At first glance, it may seem expensive and a bit of an indulgence, but it's worth every dollar. You've come all the way to Shanghai so you might as well see all there is to see, not just the tourist destinations.
