An excellent introduction to Shanghai
Positive: Loved the tour! it covers different attractions in both destinations! We had a great walk in the village and a little bit of time to discover some of the local shops there.
Negative: even though we were a small group, myself and my friend, and another lady in the tour, the tour guide wasn't cooperative much, and asking us to rush here and there.
Been in 2 tours with the same tour company, 2 different tour guides. We noticed that they are not really good in communication. Their English is understandable, but their explanation lacks the touch that a tour guide should have! They should improve their communication skills and understand how to deal with different cultures, how to say things, how not to be rude ... etc .. We noticed a gap between our tour guides and some other tour guides that were in the same attractions.
The guide Frank was very articulate and knowledgeable. The sights were worth the cost.
The guide Frank was very knowledgeable and articulate. The sights were ok.
The Guilin mountains are worth a visit but the tour should include a trip into the mountains. Viewing them only from view points within Guilin and leaving us about 4 hours time to spend on ourselves was very unexpected. Not a good value for the price paid.
Doing what: Guilin in One Day: Day Trip from Shanghai by Air
The Suzhou trip is nothing to see but zhouzhuang is nicer compare to Suzhou but we just ride the boat the go back to hotel, it should have a free time for us to walk around inside since we're already there, then we should have lunch at zhouzhuang not in Suzhou,
This is a great tour allowing you to see all of the must see sights of the city. My tour guide, Frank was fabulous, and he spoke English perfectly. I'd highly recommend not only this tour, but also requesting Frank as your tour guide. He is extremely knowledgable, and friendly making for the perfect day exploring beautiful Shanghai! A+
Great way of seeing all there is to see in Shanghai in one day. Frank was a great guide with lots of knowledge to share, which made the visit even more interesting. I would have liked to have more time to spend in the museum however, the artefacts it contains are all very interesting, and so beautiful, one hour to see it all is sadly not enough... well, I suppose I'll have to go back then! :o)
Loved Zhouzhuang, wished we could have seen more of Suzhou, even just a driving tour. The meal was only fair. We enjoyed our tour guide and the driver did a good job navigating the streets and highways.
The tour was what it purposed to be: a well balanced mixture of sightseeing and shopping opportunities. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable, eager and energetic. BRAVO
The tour guide was excellent and easy going, but it is a long day. Also, there is somewhat of a sales component in the Pearl Exchange and the silk factory, but the prices are good and many people were interested in making purchases. I would recommend this tour.
Very bumpy ride and the tour guide although lovely seemed a bit nervous or shy.
All in all it was a very good day. The water town was beautiful (even if it did have a Starbucks in the middle of it) and the museum at the city walls was very good.
Worth the day out however would probably to the half day tour.
This was a very nice tour including the boat ride on West Lake. The guide was knowledgeable. The driver however was very very reckless and aggressive in his driving ( I am able to compare him to 5 other drivers we had for tours in China) and it made my overall rating of this really very good tour lower.
