Private Full-Day Tour: Shanghai Old and New Highlights
From $121.50 (Price varies by group size )
Tour of Shanghai
, Jan 2020
We had one day in shanghai to see the sites and spent it with Lily. She customized it to fit what we were interested in seeing and the weather (which wasn't great). This was a no rush tour - we had time to really enjoy the museum, gardens and the marketplaces. Overall, very nice day and would recommend to everyone.
Our Guide, the lovely Freya, picked us up at our Hotel on time. She took us all over Shanghai to see the main sights. She willingly answered all our questions, although, I would have liked her to be more proactive and provide information on her own. Regardless, we tremendously enjoyed the day, and the delicious dumplings lunch.
Thank You Freya and Sunny Tours!
This full day tour provided the perfect overview to Shanghai. We had limited time in the city and this tour gave us the highlights and allowed us get a feel for this beautiful, impressive city. We were traveling as a family of four (mom, three daughers ages 12, 8, and 4) and we all really enjoyed the day. Our tour guide, Lily, was fantastic! She was very friendly, knowledgable and very patient with the kids. The highlight of the tour was the amazing lunch Lily arranged (we booked the tour that included this option, and it did not disappoint!). The driver was also very courteous and the vehicle was clean and comfortable - for a reasonable cost the company provided round trip transportation from our Disneyland Hotel (which was outside the standard pick up Zoe). Overall I highly recommend this tour and Lily as tour guide!
Discover old and modern Shanghai as you wish on a full-day private tour.

Our tour guide, Linda, and her driver arrived promptly at our hotel. We toured Shanghai, seeing all of the popular tourist sites including the spectacular high rise buildings in Pudong. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and in Shanghai, even though it was a short visit. At the end of the tour, we were delivered to our cruise ship as scheduled. We highly recommend this tour and tour company. Everything went as planned with no problems at all! Linda was a gracious host!
This was a fantastic use of time. Our guide, Alana, was great. I appreciated the early contact giving us information regarding immigration, where to meet, etc. We didn't have a lot of time but we felt we used the time well and got a good feel for the city for sure. We would certainly recommend this to other travelers with just a day layover.
Don’t spend your Shanghai stopover inside the airport; maximize your time in China and opt for a private and customizable sightseeing tour instead. This personalized layover tour is tailored to your needs and allows you to tick off The Bund (Waitan), French Concession, and Yuyuan Garden in limited time. Airport or hotel pickup and drop-off are included for added convenience.

Water Town & Shanghai City
, Dec 2019
Trip to the water village was fantastic, The weather was not great, But are tour guide was great her name was Berlin, When we went back to Shanghai city it was heavy rain and misty, So in instead of going Shanghai tower & the bunds, Berlin said it would be a waste of time going up the tower & the bunds as we would see nothing with the lack of visibility, So Berlin took us around Shanghai market and old Shanghai, Which was fantastic and something worth seeing, So thank you for the experience Berlin it was a fantastic day even in the poor weather
We booked a private tour only a few days prior to arriving in Shanghai, however, Alana was able to secure visas for all 8 members of our family and created a customized itinerary for us. She communicated frequently with us to ensure that we would get through immigration seamlessly and she was present to greet us warmly upon our arrival. Our guide, Caroline, was very sweet, knowledgeable and wonderful. She accommodated our requests and make excellent recommendations based on our interests and wishes. We had our elderly mother and 2 very young children with us and she was extremely patient with all of us. We had the very best meal of our entire 2 week trip at a restaurant that Caroline took us to and it was included in the tour package along with entrance fees to all the sites we visited. We felt very secure and safe with the driver. We were on a cruise with only 1 day to spend in Shanghai and it is because of Alana and Caroline that we would all love to return for a longer period of time to Shanghai. I highly recommend this private tour with this company.
Zhujiajiao Water Town and Shanghai City Private Day Tour
, Nov 2019
Thoroughly enjoyed this private tour. Using WeChat, contact was Alana, who arranged for a comfortable and clean van with a dedicated driver and a guide named Wilson. Although still in his 20's, Wilson was knowledgeable about his hometown and spoke English very well. The morning was spent at the ancient Water Town that included lunch, then a drive back to the city. We went up the Shanghai Tower with admissions tickets included, then Jade Buddha Temple with admissions included. Before returning to our Grand Central Hotel (great place!), we stopped off at the French Concession and did short walk. Aside from the overcast obscured views from the Shanghai Tower we were very happy that we booked this tour. I've been to Shanghai in 1994, 2007 and now 2019 and it has evolved into a fascinating place with dramatic transformations witnessed in each visit.
Save time without compromising on experience on this door-to-door private guided tour that covers Zhujiajiao Ancient Town and key Shanghai highlights.

Fantastic day with Celine. She picked us up at the hotel and we visited the Bund, visited a garden that parents try to find a march for their child, went to Yu Garden, Confucius Temple, a silk factory, and a tea house fo a tea ceremony. We also ate at a local dumpling restaurant and walked around the very upscale French Concession. At the end of our tour, Celine instructed the driver to drive us around pointing out other architecture of the city on the way to the airport. Celine helped us get checked in and made sure everything was handled before she left us. We had so much fun and she was very personable. The driver was nice too. I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Shanghai! Thanks Celine!
Thanks to our Guide Peggy we had a wonderful day exploring this beautiful city. We saw so many different parts of Shanghai and enjoyed every minute of the day.

Private Customized Airport Layover Tour of Shanghai City Highlights
From $163.20 (Price varies by group size )
Exciting and full of history
, Dec 2019
We had a day long lay over me and my wife in Shangai, China. And we decided to do a day tour. Glad we did. We were picked up at the airport by Mr. Wang, and then introduced to our tour guide Lily - who is extremely knowledgeable in Chinas history from architecture builders to the city's history. We were shown around all the historical land marks and a amazing Buddhist temple - so much history and so many picture perfect spots. She also took us to a authentic local food restaurant - AMAZING - finger licking food. Definitely motivated myself and wife to come back and do additional tours with Lily - so much more to cover. Thanks again Trip Advisor for linking us with them.

Visit top attractions like Yu Garden, Nanjing Road, and more alongside a guide with extensive knowledge about Shanghai; or, work with your guide to create a customized itinerary that suits your interests.
With limited time for a tour, we booked a four hour private tour with a private car. We were met promptly in our hotel lobby by Fei Fei, our guide for the morning. We had listed a few specific ideas for places to visit but as is often the case, it was the places that we did not choose but were taken to by Fei Fei that were the most enlightening. We stumbled on a produce market from the Hunnan region and tasted apples, oranges, wickedly strong rice wine and Hunnan chilli sauce. Fantastic. Fei Fei also told us what it was like to live in Shanghai - not just the sort of information that can be gained from a guide book. Highly recommended.
This was a very good tour of some of the historical sites in the city. My tour guide, Penny, is very knowledgeable and speaks perfect English. She was able to adapt my tour around the times I had available. I would highly recommend.

Walking Through the Hidden Door of Shanghai Old Town
From $99.00 (Price varies by group size )
A great alternative option for seeing Shanghai
, Jan 2020
I opted to do this tour because the typical Shanghai day tours didn't really appeal to me. Kelly was terrific, great local knowledge, flawless English and very patient and generous with her time. Wondering through the tiny alleyways of the old town, I feel I saw and learned things I would never have been able to otherwise. Very happy to recommend it.
Fei Fei was a great guide who showed us a few different areas of Shanghai not usually visited by tourists. She was passionate and had a lot of enthusiasm. The tour was great and more so because of a great guide.
Walking through the hidden door of shanghai old town
, Oct 2019
My adult son and I took this tour. Penny was a very knowledgeable guide and answered all of our questions. We learned things about the old shanghai town, which we had never seen before, while on previous trips to Shanghai.
Just a friendly suggestion though: when picking up customers for this private tour I would suggest that the tour guide announce our name(s) when she enters the lobby of the hotel to pick us up. We waited for 25 minutes in the lobby not realizing that the guide was in the lobby too. Instead she texted me (I only left my home phone number and did not include my cell no.) therefore she was not able to reach me. Announce our names first or show our names on a piece of paper, than have the hotel call up to our room, and lastly if still unable to reach the customer, than contact the customer on the cell phone through text or by calling. Other than that the tour was very informative. Thank you.

Day in Suzhou with Daisy Chen
, Nov 2019
Daisy was waiting for us at 09.00 in the hotel lobby, we were taken by taxi to Shanghai station and took the bullet train to Suzhou. We spent the whole day in Suzhou including rickshaw ride, authentic Chinese meal and private water cruise, returning to hotel in Shanghai at around 19.00. Very impressed with tour and Daisy as a tour guide. Would have liked a little more time for shopping.
The private tour is pricier, but so worth. We did two with this company, one to SuZhou and one to Hangzhou. Xin was our Suzhou guide. Her english was great and was a very experienced guide. This tour makes everything very convenient, it is not easy as a foreigner to figure out how to get to all these places. The bullet train saves a lot of time over group tours that use buses. They also have a private driver in Suzhou that saves a lot of time as well, you can see more things that way. The lunch option was also amazing, Xin took us to an authentic place for good local food. The rickshaw ride was our favorite part of the trip! Highly recommended for the attention they give you and for being able to see a lot in one day efficiently and in comfort!
Our travel guide was Alana and our local guide was Tracey. They were both excellent! The tour was very well planned and all the logistics went very smoothly. They were both full of lots of information and we felt like they really cared about providing an interesting and well run tour. They brought us to a local restaurant in Suzhou and the food was excellent, it was one of the best meals we had while we were in China. The transportation provided, the train and cars , were all first class. Water and snacks were provided during the day. We had plenty of time at each sight and we never felt rushed. Our day in Suzhou was the nicest day we had while we were in the Shanghai area. I can not say enough nice things about this tour!
Escape the bustle of modern Shanghai and enjoy a relaxing day in small-town China during this all-inclusive day trip to Suzhou, a picturesque riverside city famed for its centuries-old heritage.

Heaven on the way to Paradise
, Jan 2020
What an amazing private tour. From the first moment our guide Berlin greeted us at the hotel to the last minute that she made sure we arrived back safely, everything about this experience was top notch. The communication beforehand. The sights we saw. The food / restaurant that was picked for lunch (seriously. the best meal we had!). The seemless operation of travel logistics. Simply cannot beat this level of service. Worth every penny. Well, every Yuan. HIGHLY recommend!
On Thursday, Nov. 14, 2019 I took the tour from Shanghai to Hangzhou and it is honestly the best tour I’ve ever been on. Berlin was our tour guide and she made our trip even better.
