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.
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.
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.
Great way to see Shanghai for first time visitors. Tour guide was very informative and helpful.
highly recommended within a day of arrival so the traveler can orient him/herself on the sites of the city--then afterwards one can pick out the favorite areas and visit/explore independently-- the lunch food was ok... visit to the shanghai museum and the bund were the highlights of this tour
This trip was very good.. Tour guide was very lively, though her English was bit hard to understand but it is ok as it was just 2 of us in the tour so we could ask questions if it didn't make sense :-). Food was ok. I would definitely recommend this trip to see all places in Shanghai.
Amazing sites, but I could do without the tourist traps like the jewelry mart or souvenir shopping. Guide was very knowledge and his English was pretty good.
Great day trip around Shanghai! Frank our tour guide was amazing with excellent knowledge of the local attractions. The Jade Buddha temple is excellent.
This is a great tour and the size of the group was small (total of 6) in air condition van. Got a lot of history from tour guide and saw many sites in Shanghai. Had a great tasty Shanghai lunch ordered by the guide. Loved the museum, learning about pearls, silk, and jade, history and sites of the Bund, beautiful Jade Buddha Temple, and the beauty of Yuyaun Garden. Tour was timely and didn't feel rushed.
