We really had a fun,informative day in Shanghai.Jean was fantastic,extremely obliging , answered all our questions and showed us many aspects of the city.Considering we are a family of five with children aged 14,12 and 9 and were in transit for only one day, we saw a lot with minimal fuss.We would highly recommend Jean for anyone who needs a private guide of Shanghai.

Jean did an amazing job of giving us a tour of the city. We only had 3 days in Shanghai and spent the first full day with Jean. She suggested that we use taxi's and the Metro to travel around instead of a private car. I am so glad that we did as it was very comfortable to travel like a local for the rest of the visit. She sent an itinerary in advance and we made changes on the spot as she learned of my husband's interest in photography and architecture. Definitely made the trip and will use her again!

My husband and I and our three daughters, ages 23/21/16 traveled to Shanghai in December. We hired Jean Liu from Shanghai Lander as our tour guide. We spent a day and a half with Jean and loved getting to know her and thoroughly enjoyed the tours.

The first day we toured the Former Jewish Ghetto. Jean met us at our hotel and we then took taxis to HuoShan Park, saw HuoShan Road and the old housing, walked the neighborhood and went to the Shanghai Jewish Refugee Museum. At the park we danced with senior citizens and were actually invited into one of the tenements with one of the seniors we had met in the park. We felt the neighborhood come alive along with the history as Jean explained the events during World War II. The museum/synagogue were very interesting as well and Jean was extremely knowledgeable. We also went to a noodle house where locals eat and Jean ordered for us and made sure we were taken care of!

The next day we drove to Suzhou city and Tongli water town. We visited the ShuoShengYuan garden and Suzhou Museum and then the Tongli water town. We found the outing to be filled with interesting history and stories. We enjoyed leaving the city and also going back into history to experience a different part of Shanghai, reminiscent of city and towns from centuries ago. The van was extremely comfortable and we found that the time in the van was also enjoyable. Jean spoke and educated us, but also recognized when we needed to rest ...being somewhat jet lagged at the time.

We would absolutely recommend Jean as a tour guide. We all really liked her. The girls were very happy with Jean as well, as she was able to relate to them as well.

Only had two days in Shanghai and we luckily decided to hire a private tour guide from Shanghai Lander. Jean was already booked so Annie was assigned to us.

It is hard to adequately explain how amazing our experience was. She was early to our hotel both days and had a well organized plan based on our previous correspondence, however Annie quickly adapted to any changes we threw at her. Not only did we leave with a comprehensive overview of Shanghai, but her knowledge of the history and culture was almost scary. Historical names, dates and facts rolled off her tongue as if she was reciting them directly from a text book. Annie was extremely easy to understand and her witty personality was also much appreciated.

In addition to her top quality knowledge, she gave us some valuable insight about local customs and nightlife. She pointed out which taxis to avoid, which areas of town we should visit for dinner and took us to some great local places for lunch. I am confident that her advice on haggling at some of the local markets might have saved us enough money to pay for her services all together.

I HIGHLY recommend this company for any of your touring needs. Looking forward to the next trip so we can explore some of the outskirts of the city to take advantage of Annie's knowledge even more.
