5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Guide had great command of English. He was punctual and accommodating allowing us to linger at sites

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

Luke was an amusing and perfect host, his English was perfect and he ensured that we saw a selection of venues. He was flexible in his timings and allowed us to linger when we wanted to. He also took notice of our likes to customise the selection of venues. Luke kindly spent some time with us at the end of the tour and marked up our map and wrote out addresses so we could return to our favourite venues on our own. A really good evening out.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

Our tour guide Luke was very polite and courteous and mindful of our needs as we were more mature ladies.
He was very knowledgable about the Shanghai area, very pleasant walk around the French Concession area, we thoroughly enjoyed our evening and our time with Luke.
Would recommend this tour to all. The driver was excellent.
Thanks to all

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

Shanghai was the end of a tour which started in Singapore, then Ho Chi Minh City , Hong Kong and ending in Shanghai. Although we did not know it when we booked it, this tour was the perfect way to see Shanghai at night. By ourselves, we could not possibly have seen the places Christina showed us. We have spoken before and since to people who have lived or worked in Shanghai and they are amazed at what we managed to do and see and the various areas i.e. "shop houses", French Concession and martinis on the 92nd floor of the financial sector Park Hyatt with it's amazing views was second to none. We have always combined "organised excursions" with "doing our own thing" but [n Shanghai we would say "book a tour". Our ship gave us a list of the most popular places we might like to see in English and also in Chinese characters, and we also made sure that we had our hotel's stationery with the address in both languages as the taxi drivers do not and indeed are not expected ( and why should they?) to speak English.
