We are happy to have this tour with our wonderful guide Snow and helpful driver. We had a great experience in Shanghai. We visit different places such as Shanghai Tower, Yu Garden, Jade Buddha Temple. We enjoyed our guide knowledge and her friendly attitude. She helped us a lot. We really enjoyed the food in Shanghai style restaurant. It is a good choice. Also during all day our guide was caring about our needs and answer all our questions and help us in different situations. We will highly recommend this tour and guide Snow.

My wife and I just did the all-inclusive Shanghai layover tour. The tour hit the major sites we wanted to see, starting with the Shanghai Tower, giving us an impressive view of the city. Snow then took us to lunch and introduced us to local dishes, which was good because we otherwise wouldn’t have known where to eat. After lunch, we visited the Jade Temple, French Concession, the Yu gardens, and then the Bund. Snow was a helpful tour guide, explaining things as we went along (and thankfully getting us coffee when we started to get sleepy from jet lag!). The tour was exactly what we wanted on our day’s layover.

My tour was amazing! I am so happy to have gone with them instead of exploring the city on our own. I met someone with the same layover as me and they let her tag along for the ride (she paid for her expenses). The guide knew the area very well and had a lot to say about the surroundings. The guide took great photos of us along the way and was very patient and flexible with us. We saw some amazing sites. The tour was definitely greater than expected and I will recommend it to anyone I know coming to this city! 10/10 amazing work for what this city has to offer!

It was a worry free tour. When we arrived from the airport, our driver came to pick us. Drove us to the city where we met Snow our excellent tour guide. She just take the lead. It was just like meeting an old friend and giving us an at-home tour of Shanghai. She was very accommodating. Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, our schedule was very flexible. It was great to see the Jade Buddha temple, Yu garden, French concession, the Bund and lastly the Jinmao tower. All in few hours of our Layover ,we get to see mostly all of the beautiful sites in the city of Shanghai. The food was good too! We have eaten Chinese food in our county but the authentic Chinese style here in Shanghai taste way way better. We are happy we get to experience seeing Shanghai with Snow. She did an awesome job!

Alana was an amazing guide. It was a rainy day but that did not lessen our enjoyment for this tour. We saw amazing sites in Shanghai both the old area and new area. Our lunch was the best Chinese food ever. We are so happy we booked this tour and would do it all over again. Thank you for an amazing layover tour.

This tour with Alana is a “Must Do” when a long layover in Shanghai is in your itinerary. More than worth the money and my wife and I would do it all over again. After spending a day with Alana in Shanghai my wife and I can’t even imagine being able to experience this beautiful place and the true culture of Shanghai without the help of such an experienced guide. From the assistance with obtaining our transit visa, to the many locations we toured, to even helping us with charging our cellular devices and getting us back to the airport in a timely fashion to make our connecting flight, Alana and company get an “A+++” from our family. Don’t miss this outing on your long layover.

The tour was amazing and our tour guide Queena was the best ever. She made us feel very comfortable during the entire tour. Queena was full of energy and ensured we visited all the sites that we were interested in. Lunch was very tasteful and an authentic experience to taste the local food. Overall I would recommend Queena to anyone as a great tour guide and very knowledgeable on the city of Shanghai. She did an excellent job leading the tour and gave very valuable insight and information on Shanghai. Our driver was great help and on time picking us up at the airport. We felt very safe during transport and he even played some great music. Thanks to both of them for such an unforgettable experience in Shanghai!

To start Alana Wu was very helpful with directing us on how to get out of the airport and meet our driver! Mr Zheng was early and waiting for us! He was friendly and a wonderful driver! Queena is an amazing tour guide. She was super nice and pleasant. She was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions! She was always helpful and willing to stop and take photographs for us. We went to the gardens, temple, the Bund and the Shanghai tower!We had the most delicious lunch! Queena help us pick out the best food on the menu and none of the dishes were disappointing! We loved this tour and would recommend it to anyone!

Our guide Alana was great, she was very knowledgeable and friendly and made the tour very enjoyable. The car was very spacious and air conditioned. The car picked us up and dropped us off at the airport. My family and I enjoyed our time during layover tour with Alana.
