Was met just outside of customs and escorted to the Maglev and then the driver met us at the train station in Shanghai to take me to my hotel. Very well run

What a way to get to the city, hassle free and very smooth. Met at the door from the train, luggage taken for us, and followed the guide to the train station, where we boarded the bullet train, in the city within 15 minutes. Then met by our taxi driver who transferred us to our hotel. Totally recommend, takes the stress away, also a plus when you don't know where to go. A great experience and will do again when we next visit Shanghai.

This is the only maglev train in the world. We arrived at 9 pm exhausted and were quite happy to not have to think - just follow the tour guide who was informative about the train and then the Bundt as we took a taxi to go to our hotel. The maglev is very convenient if you are staying in Pudong (the new convention area) and it wouldn't take much brainpower (lots of signs) and it would take much less money (8 yuan per person) if you did without the guide. If you do need a taxi, you should be mentally sharp and forceful in fending off the "black" taxis.

Met on arrival and helped with my baggage to train. Comfortable drive from station to hotel. Guide very helpful, knowledgeable and efficient - recommended. This trip can be done much cheaper on your own, but if, like me, you've had a long flight and it's your first time to Shanghai it takes the stress and anxiety out of the transfer.
