“A great walking tour!”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

My friend and I had scheduled the 3 hour walking tour with Jean when arrived. Unfortunately at the time we had arranged to meet, we were dealing with lost bags so we couldn't leave right away. Jean was nice enough to help us out and spoke with the airline carrier since we had the language barrier and asked them to call her when the luggage arrived. We were so thankful!

Since there's so much to do in Shanghai, it was a great way to see what I felt were more 'authentic' things. She took us through the Old Town Market to the Yuyuan Gardens where she was extremely knowledgeable (in everything!) and gave us some very interesting facts. We then walked through some residential neighborhoods, a pet market and an antique market.
I thoroughly enjoyed the tour and Jean was an amazing tour guide who's english was superb and she knew her history!

“Wonderful way to see the City of Shanghai”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We spent the day yesterday touring Shanghai with Annie - We had a couple of free days to ourselves before we are to join our group tour of China and thought it wise to spend our first full day with a local English speaking guide to help us familiarize ourselves with China.
That was a very good decision and we could not be more pleased with our day.
We were taken to many wonderful locations not on our upcoming tour itinerary and truly felt that we were seeing many things that were "off the beaten track". There was no question we could not ask Annie and as our agreed upon schedule opened up some more free time she was keen to offer suggestions and allow us to see additional areas that we had not counted on
We certainly felt at ease (and privileged) to have a local explaining so much of the local details and history to us -
We were very well looked after and can not recommend this day enough !
For us we saw the French Concession area, the Jewish Ghetto, a public market and many other hidden treasures. (The highlight was when Annie took us to a Noodle House frequented by locals - it was great to eat the local food among the locals and we enjoyed that)
If you are coming to Shanghai - we would highly recommend you book a tour with this company.
They were excellent and helpful with all pre-trip emails from home to organize the day as well.
A+ experience for sure!

“Excellent tour- highly recommend!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

My husband and I took a one day tour of Shanghai guided by Annie. I emailed Jean who is very prompt with email replies and worked with me to set up a tour schedule that would maximize our time in SH. We learned so much in just one day! Annie is clearly very knowledgeable about all of the major attractions in Shanghai but she was also full of interesting tidbits about cultural observations and current trends. Her English is excellent and she has a great sense of humor to boot! We highly recommend Shanghai Lander.

“A stress free shanghai experience.”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We arranged a day trip through shanghai lander for our family of three from New Zealand. We used shanghai Lander because it had great reviews and we found the service excellent from our very first communications. Our guide was Jimmy and he looked after us very well from meeting us at the airport, taking us to all the places we wanted to visit plus a couple of little extras he suggested.

“Fantastic Shanghai trip”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

Jean at Shanghai Lander was very patient with all our changes of plan and they organised for Annie to look after us for two full days. She was an excellent guide. She was very informative and clearly knew her stuff. She was patient and extremely polite and spoke English very well. By the way, we would recommend Lost Heaven on the Bund for a fun evening to enjoy delicious food.
