I was the only person on this tour so it was a very personalized morning. Our driver was very safe by Shanghai standards and I felt comfortable in his car. The guide, Fiona, is a local from Shanghai and filled the tour with great snippets of information - she knew all the interesting little things that you are not likely to read in a tourist guide. Like, which taxi companies are more likely to scam a tourist etc. Fiona is well traveled herself and spoke excellent English. She was also very interested in my home country (Australia) which was quite sweet. I did the morning tour and was not expecting a visit to the silk factory but Fiona managed to squeeze it in. If you are thinking of doing this half day tour make sure you do the afternoon one to ENSURE a visit to the Silk factory (It is very clearly stated in the booking info that the Silk factory is NOT included in the morning tour so DO NOT be disappointed if you book the morning tour and don't go there). The silk factory really is amazing and very worthwhile. Rainbow was the name of the tour guide there and she also spoke very good English. The pearl museum really is just a pearl shop with a snippet of interesting info in the foyer. At the silk shop I was able to wander on my own a bit and look at the merchandise. So I was able to make my own mind up about purchases. However at the pearl shop the sales attendant really shadowed me which made me slightly uncomfortable. We also had an hour at the Shanghai Museum which was perfect for me. Four floors of Chinese antiquities - very interesting, but for me, any more than an hour and I would loose interest. The Jade temple was also interesting but a little sad that it has become such a commercial enterprise. Each temple had a shop in or next to it. I guess the Vatican in Rome does the same thing so..... Definitely try this tour if you only have half a day to spare as I did. It is not rushed, nor is it too slow. I had a great morning.

My guide, Jennifer, was wonderful! It was my last day in Shanghai after a 2 week stay and I was her only guest. So, she customized my tour to exactly what I still needed to see and do. Outstanding!

This was a great tour (we only had three people so it was very personal and we learned a great deal about the pearl industry, Buddhism (at the Jade Buddha temple). The Shanghai museum has tremendous historical items and one could easily spend an entire day there.

This was so amazing, far better than we could ever have hoped for. The historic information given was inspiring that I will now do far more reading on China before visiting again. Our guide, Frank, and driver were incredible in introducing us to ShangHai. Thank you so much, we will always be recommending Viator.

The morning tour was everything as described. Our tour guide, Joe, was fabulous. He answered not only sightseeing questions, but quite a few language/cultural questions as well. We were picked up and dropped off on time and saw all the spots included in the description. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Shanghai! Quite informative!

I like the fact that Helen is friendly and very well versed with Shanghai history. She also brought us to shop for souvenirs at a local shop where the price is extremely reasonable. Excellent service and well done! I would suggest to my friend to agaim get Helen's service!

A very busy, but very worthwhile, tour. It serves as an excellent introduction to Shanghai. Have your map with you and work out where you are going, and be sure to look for the contrasts and variety. If you have not been to the key points of interest on this tour, you have not seen Shanghai!
