Our guide, Frank, was very knowledgeable,friendly and helpful. He introduced us to so many new areas and sights in a city we have visited many times. We would highly recommend Frank and an independent tour of the city.

Four of us had a great day with Fran who was so knowledgeable, helpful and flexible about what we wanted to see. We spent a great time at the French Concession; the Shanghai Art Museum; a great restaurant and lunch; and a few other stops of our choice. We could not have had a better guide who is an excellent translator, coach and companion for seeing Shanghai.

I must tell you that this was the best money that I've ever spent on a private tour. My guide, I called her Fi, was absolutely wonderful!! She was very personable, well read, and was very easy to talk to. I would tour with her again anytime. Thanks for such a wonderful time:)

Frank was great!!! He was very informative and accommodating!. We were able to see more sights on our own as opposed to a larger tour group - no waiting for others, plus we got to select the places we wanted to eat, etc! Highly recommended!
