We recently returned from a 3 week vacation in China, visited Beijing, Chengdu, Guilin, Yangshou, Hong Kong and Shanghai and Hangzhou. We planned most of the trip ourselves by utilizing a lot of the great resources on Trip Advisor. CuteMinMin’s along with many others’ postings on Shanghai was a tremendous help. For our last couple days in Shanghai, we wanted to do a day trip to Hangzhou on a last minute basis. Because of our concerns around transportation and time constraint, I emailed CuteMinMin for advise and asked for a guide recommendation. She promptly responded to my email and hooked me with David, who is an awesome tour guide. He spoke great English, arrived at our hotel on time to pick us up and accompanied us to the train station. He spent the whole day with us, taking us to the West Lake, temple and tea village. It was great having him around. I am not sure if we could have done without him (especially visiting all these places in 1 day); he definitely had made trip a heck of lot easier and memorable! There were times where it was very difficult to get a taxi in Hangzhou, David managed to help us get a ride from a local driver who was able to drop us off at a spot that was easier to get taxi. He is also very knowledgeable and great to talk to. It was very interesting to learn about the local culture and way of life. We truly enjoyed our time at Hangzhou with David and would highly recommend him! Thanks for such a great time in Hangzhou, David & CuteMinMin!

We wanted a tour guide for Shanghai and found SAT China on Trip Advisor. They had good reviews and went with them. Min min organised everything from the airport pickup to drop off 2 days later. Always prompt with email responses she cauld not be faulted.
David our tour guide was great. His knowledge of Shanghai both current and historically was terrific taking us to all the places we wanted to go giving a detailed explanation at each. He also took us to some out of the way chinese suburban restaurants. We paid A$2 per person at one. And the food there was pretty good.
All in all highly recommended.

Min Min was very prompt when I sent her a request for a guide. Our guide, Olivia, was very knowledgeable about Shanghai, spoke excellent English and had a great sense of humor. My 6 year old was with us for one day, and Olivia took us to tourist attractions that were interesting for both of us, like the Aquarium and the Bund sightseeing tunnel. When the group was just adults, Olivia planned a different itinerary. At Yu Gardens, I was so glad she was with us, because her explanations of the significance of different rocks and paths provided insights that we would not otherwise have had. Great job!!

We worked with Michael R at China Joy and he was very pleasant and professional. He tried to understand first what was our business exactly so he could introduce us properly to the potential clients.
I definitely I would recommend to work with SAT China.

We booked Shanghai Private Tours for a two day tour of Shanghai a week before we flew out there. As Min Min was very efficient and quick with answering queries we were able to confirm our booking in a very short time.

Our tour guide Charles spoke very good English and was an extremely good guide who organised the two days very well: communicating with the driver on where to pick up after each site and changing the the itinerary when requested.

Overall, the entire experience was first class and also extremely good value for money.

As my parents and brother's family are also flying into Shanghai to meet up with us. I have made another one day tour booking for a completely custom tour in very short notice, which Min Min was able to quickly arrange and confirm. I am taking this tour tomorrow and will probably write another review on afterwards!

Keep the good service up Shanghai Private Tours!
