It was a great experience both towns met my expectations on cuteness, it included lunch which was very good. On both towns we visited gardens and houses which we very nice. We really enjoyed the ride in the boat, the boat navigator was very nice and the ride in the rickshaw (cycle carriage) was also very good. Transportation was very comfortable. Our guide Daniel also did an excellent job. We were picked/dropped at our hotel. This is a whole day tour , the walking is not strenuous. It was raining in the AM but clear in the PM. Overall highly recommend.

We did a three day private tour with guide and driver. Sophie Lee was our very knowledgeable guide taking us to all places of interest in Shanghai such as The Bund, Yuyuan Garden,French Concession area to name a few. We also immersed ourselves in the culture at the Chinese lantern Festival. On the third day we travelled outside Shanghai to Suzhou where we took a rickshaw ride and visited Tongli water town for a boat ride. Each day we visited a local restaurant where the food was delicious and plentiful. We must add the driver was very good and always on time and the vehicle was very clean and modern. On our last day in Shanghai Sophie Lee accompanied us to the port to embark our cruise ship. She would not leave us until we had all paperwork complete and ready to board the ship. Highly recommend this company.

We were a group of two couples sightseeing in Shanghai prior to boarding a cruise ship. Our guide, Sophie Lee, was fabulous. Over three days of touring, I don't think we missed a thing. Sophie's English is superb, and she took care of us as though we were her grandparents. From toilet stops at the right time, to wonderful lunches, and expert explanation of marvelous Shanghai, we could not be more pleased with Sophie than we are. We are experienced travelers, and have toured all over the world, and have never had a better tour guide. We were fortunate to have her take care of us.

Sophie the guide and the driver were excellent! Sophie is knowledgeable about Shanghai and the region and I thoroughly enjoyed this relaxing day away from busy Shanghai in the picturesque town of Xitang. While booking and afterwards, Vivi handled my arrangements and I add she is a true professional and answered all questions. I would definitely book with Shanghai Highlights again.

Our guide Daniel was very informative and a pleasure to spend the day with. It rained during parts of the day and he was able to arrange alternatives so that we could still see the areas that we planned to see.
