Very enjoyable, informative and interesting. Lunch was plentiful and very good. Well informed tour guide. Jade Buddha Temple is not to be missed & the Fresh Water Pearl Gallery is a real treat where pearl jewelery can be bought at great bargains. Not enough time at the Shanghai Museum but anyone can revisit at his own leisure if required.
The guide was fantastic! She was not only knowledgeable, but helpful and fun as well. The number of sights to see in this tour made it worth it. The food was plenty. The only setback was that we were not able to go inside the Shanghai Museum, since it was recently opened to the public for free, hence the long lines. Maybe the tour can be improved if there is access to the museum without having to line up.
Loved the tour! Definitely worth it. Our tour guide was very informative, sweet and fun to be around. We got to see so much and learn so much about Shanghai.
This tour was great. It ended up just being me and my husband, so it was like a private tour. At the end of the day our guide took us to a local spa for a foot massage. It was well worth having after a long day of walking and sight seeing.
Just 3 words, IT WAS AWESOME. Our guide could not have been better.
Our tour leader was intelligent, knowledgeable and had perfect English. He was a great ambassador for Chinese culture and we learned so much about Shanghai and China. We didn't feel rushed at all and he let the group dictate how long we wanted to spend in each place. We were so impressed we want to come back and do a longer tour of China.
The trip was great and the guide was wonderful. Learned a lot about the city and the people. Highly recommend.
Great day out, tour guides are fantastic, great value for money.
Thorough tour of Shanghai highlights. The typical stops to see pearls and silk made - shopping opportunity
The tour guide was quite charming and knowledgeable and the tour itself was fine, the Jade Buddha Temple, the Bund, the Gardens, even the pearl and silk stores I didn't mind. Starting at the Shanghai Museum was also good - even if racing through it in an hour hardly did it justice, but a good intro nonetheless.
HOWEVER, the lunch was worse than Chinese food in America, just touristy and nothing particularly good, interesting or special. After hearing from the local guide about the yummy breakfast items he savored at street stands, it would've been lovely to have some really good Shanghai treats. The young couple in our small group opted to lunch at a nearby Haagen Dazs. They made a wise choice.
Overall, the tour was worth the money especially in the August summer heat. I ended up being the only person on the tour so it was more of a private tour. The tour hit all the major sites of Shanghai and wasn't rushed. The only thing I didn't like as with most tours are the shops they stop at to try and get you to buy things. After a couple I told them don't take me to any more and they listened! Anyway, beats trying to find these sites by yourself on the subway. Recommended!
The trip was excellent, the tourist guide was very knowlegable and organized.
Our tour guide Mr. Ding took us to these amazing places in Shanghai. The tour guide is very knowledgeable and can tell a lot of things about shanghai in great detail. It really made my stay in shanghai special. He also left a note in the front desk reminding me of the tour. Excellent service!
Tour guide was excellent as well as the lunch. I'd have enjoyed this tour more if it didn't include stops at Pearl and Silk shops.
