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 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.
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
Very nice tour and I recommend it if you want to get an insiders view of the city. The guide was great and met me in the hotel right on time. There were 5 of us on the tour and it was very convenient to have the driver drop us off, the guide would explain what we were seeing and when it was time to go to the next location the car would just appear and we would hop in and be on our way.
Note that after you see an attraction you will have the opportunity to purchase the goods. For example, after learning about pearls we went to the store where they sell pearls, same thing with the silk, tea, etc. However, I had some shopping to do, and having the guide around made me more comfortable that the items were as represented, etc.
Go and enjoy!
Tour guide was a lovely, helpful person but hard to understand sometimes.
I liked the Tour. However, day tours is more enjoyable in an open bus. I was alone in a minivan which was not cool. However, the guide was helpful.
our tour was very good and complete - a good introduction to the city. Our guide was a bit soft spoken we got to see many things we might have otherwise missed.
A good way to see the city quickly, although would recommend skipping the pearl factory.
Good tour, though there seems to be a lot of driving around the city that isn't necessary. I think I'd recommend just doing a half-day tour, seeing the Jade Buddha Temple, maybe the museum, and the oyster pearl factory. Things like the Bund, Yu Gardens, and the French Concession are easy enough to see on your own on your trip if you've got time to sight-see.
