We had a great time on this tour. We had a small group of 8 and were introduced to many new foods, in a easy and relaxed way. Our guide Mitchell, was very interesting he had lots of fun stories to tell, he paid attention to make sure we were all having a good time. I would defiantly recommend this tour.

This tour was really fun. We met at the meeting point and walked around the old town, including Yuyuan garden, Susie our guide was excellent. She was very relaxed and made the tour feel like we were walking around with a friend. She showed us many interesting places. We asked her about buying a Marjong set in Shanghai, so at the end she took us to a market and helped us purchase two for our sons at a really good price. We really enjoyed our morning with Susie.

We met Janny at M50, we had an interesting afternoon strolling around the galleries. Janny was very friendly and made the visit enjoyable. If we had not done this tour I think we would have trouble locating this area and all the galleries inside. An enjoyable afternoon.

Most of the tour was good. Unfortunately I was disappointed that on many of the sections of the tour, the best seats at the front of the top of the double decked bus, in my opinion, were taken up by what appeared to be local business men on their computers or talking very loudly on their phones. They were not at all interested in the scenery or what was going on outside. On the blue line, a young fellow had his tripod set up with his camera and took up all four of the seats at the front of the bus while he slept. Next time I want to see Shanghai from a double decker bus, I will use the local "hop on, hop off" bus at a much cheaper rate.

Six family members all enjoyed the historical sites in Qufu and Taian. We especially liked Annie (sp) our tour guide who was very helpful at explaining the historical significance of the sites. She did everything to make sure we all enjoyed the tour. The sites were amazing and would be enjoyed by anyone interested in Chinese culture. There is a good bit of walking and stair climbing and may be a bit challenging for older folks like me. The hotel Queli is conveniently located near the Confucius Temple and is clean and comfortable. My one problem with the tour was that the six tickets that were purchased for us for the bullet train trip back to Shanghai were for assigned seats scattered around one car. Since the train was filled to capacity we were not able to sit together for the three hour trip to Shanghai. We booked this tour many weeks ago so there was no excuse for making the six of us ride in different places around the car. Since two of our party are children this presented a big problem. We have been on several Viator tours and we certainly didn't think it would be necessary to specify that the six of us wished to be seated together on the train. One benefit of using tour companies is to have knowledgeable professionals anticipate problems. If I had booked the tour on my own I surely would not have taken the trip if I could not get adjacent seats on the train.
