“An excellent day with Miki!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

My friend and I were on business in Shanghai and had a Sunday spare. We used Miki to introduce us to the highlights of the city and were not disappointed! Miki met us at the hotel and we walked the city and used public transport. She has a very good knowledge of the city and we particularly liked her extensive set of maps and photos on her iPad, which she used to illustrate the points she was making. Her English is good and she has a great sense of humuor! Is she the number one attraction in Shanghai? Is she better than the Bund?! We joked with her about this - maybe, maybe not - but she is a great guide and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her, and use her again in the future!

“Five Days In Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

My wife and I spent five days in Shanghai and were fortunate to have local tour guide Miki for two days. On the first day Miki met us in our hotel and we headed off together for a full day exploring Shanghai. We got to see the Bund and its historic buildings, the old town and its bustling markets, Yuyuan Garden, French Concession area, Taikang Road and its interesting variety of shops, Peoples Square and Peoples Park and the modern Pudong district. Miki provided expert commentary on all the sights and took us to a local restaurant for lunch which served deliciious food. On day two Miki organised a driver with a brand new vehicle to pick us up from the hotel for a trip to the country side. About an hour from the city our first stop was an ancient little water town called Jinze. This peaceful village had no tourists and we walked down the cobblestone lanes aong the waterways watching the local people go about about their daily lives. The town has a wide variety of historic bridges built over the canals. The second stop was a larger water town called Zhujiajiao. Feeling hungry on arrival Miki took us to a restaurant for lunch where we sat on a balcony overlooking the waterway. Lunch included the freshest crabs we have ever had and shall never forget. After lunch we strolled past the many old buildings lining the riverbanks containing spice stores, gift shops, tea houses and galleries before returning to our hotel with Miki and our driver in his lovely new car. Miki is a truly wonderful person who made our visit to this great city a memorable one. Her detailed knowledge, friendly nature and desire to ensure visitors have a great time make her the perfect choice as your tour guide.

“Great day at the water villages!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

We had one more day in Shanghai than we'd originally planned for, and my wife somehow found Miki and arranged for a day visiting some villages about an hour from the city. Man, were we lucky!
The peaceful life of the (as yet undeveloped) first village we saw was a world away from the hustle and bustle of Shanghai, and walking through fields of rice, cotton, soybeans, and loofas (go figure... I didn't even know that was a plant!) gave us a fascinating view into the rural side of China. We also got to see a fishing village and a huge garden estate, and listening to Miki tell her own stories along with those of what we were seeing brought the whole day to life.
Our two boys (9&12) had a great time, and they were both adamant that we should give Miki an "excellent" review. The fact that she was able to engage two high-energy boys for an entire day is probably a better indicator than anything else I could think of to describe Miki's energy level.

“Great recommendation by Miki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 31, 2013

I found Miki on tripadvisor and right away felt a great connection on a personal level. Miki was very responsive and helped me to plan our trip to Shaghai. Our travel schedule changed the last minute and Miki was not available to do a tour with us on this particular date, however she recommended her good friend Tifa Wu to help us who did a great job!
We had a wonderful tour with Tifa to Tongli water village. The whole experience exceeded our expectations - Tifa is a very personable, caring and knowledgeable guide who went extra miles to make this tour the highlight of our trip to China! My husband and I would not hesitate to recommend Tifa and Miki to anyone looking for a great tour guide in Shanghai and area.

“Great day with Miki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

Miki met us at our hotel early in the morning with a driver. The first order of business was our laundry which had been piling up over the week - she found a laundry in the neighborhood, which did everything that day, and the driver picked it up and dropped it off at our hotel later in the day! We did a trip to 2 different water villages - and at the second one, Miki knew the owners of a tea shop. Although not a restaurant, they prepared a feast of excellent dishes for us! She is very knowledgeable and has lots of fun facts about china. She grew up in the country so can offer an interesting perspective on the city vs. the country.
