As we had limited time in Shanghai, we chose this tour because it combined an iconic day trip Zhujiajiao Water Town with city highlights. Best of all, Shanghai Tower tickets and a scrumptious lunch, scenic boat ride and visit to a nobleman's house at Zhujiajiao Water Town are all included in the Tour price. At the time of booking, we mentioned that we needed a child friendly guide, restroom breaks and not very brisk walking during the Tour, needless to say, all our requests were accommodated by Amazing Shanghai Trip in the form of our affable, young, enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide, Snow. After being collected from our Hotel lobby, we were whisked away via very clean, spacious and comfortable private transport to the Zhujiajiao Water Town. While driving through Shanghai city, Snow pointed out many significant structures and areas and also chalked out our day's itinerary. On arrival at Zhujiajiao Water Town, our first stop was the Nobleman's House- a blend of beautiful gardens and architecture. After we walked down Zhujiajiao Water Town's main street which lines one of its main canals, to experience life as it has been preserved over centuries. Then we crossed over to the other part of the town via the iconic and most photographed Fangsheng Bridge, saw many quaint bric a brac stores and street food joints (yes, we sampled many local delights) before landing up at our home style luncheon restaurant, expertly picked by Snow for its quality food and canal views. Snow ordered very generously for us, keeping in mind all our individual tastes. Post lunch we had an opportunity to again walk through another part of the Water Town before ending our visit with a boat ride on the canal. By late afternoon we headed back to Shanghai and were taken directly to Yuyuan Garden where we spent some time, later we headed to the Bund and the French Concession when the sun had set and all the lights had come on- stunning! Much photography and walking along the Bund later, our Tour culminated at the Shanghai Tower. This glorious structure has a very interesting history, the views it offers of the entire city and famous Bund are as spectacular as knowing about how it was conceptualised from 3D printing! All in all, our Tour was the perfect introduction to not only the city of Shanghai, but the beauty that surrounds it. Being with Snow was like being with a friend who spent a day taking us around a city where she was born, raised and which she genuinely loved. My daughters adored her and watching the three of them together, made us very happy. To my husband and I, she was a knowledgeable and caring guide, who fulfilled her duties to the best of her abilities and ensured that our needs were taken care of. If you're considering a Tour in Shanghai which offers the best of the city and Zhujiajiao Water Town, select ‘Amazing Shanghai Trip’ to organise it because you will get exactly what is promised without any compromises and of course, ask for Snow to be your guide.
5 stars for Snow. She is very flexible and willing to help in anyway possible! I got to visit many sites and she was very informative about each one. Snow was also very kind and made sure I saw everything on the list. I would definitely travel with her again.
Despite the freezing weather and rain we had an amazing day. Berlin’s local knowledge and insights were extremely interesting and informative. My mother was in a wheelchair, making things a little difficult for us all but Berlin and Gao, our driver accommodated her with little fuss. I would highly recommend Berlin as a guide to friends, family and others. I wouldn’t hesitate to use yours and her services should I return to Shanghai.
We only had one day in Shanghai on a stopover on our way home, and this tour seemed a good way to maximise our time. Alana our guide was lovely, going out of her way to make our tour as enjoyable as possible. Despite the fact it was a cold and rainy day we enjoyed our time. Thank you Alana.
The tour was the highlight of our Shanghai visit. Snow our guide is knowledgeable, accommodating and personable. The tour guide our driver and the places visited were all excellent! Highly recommend it! And.... the food in the water village was delicious.
I really enjoyed my time today with Berlin. She was informative, efficient and flexible in showing us what we wanted to see. I really enjoyed the Water Town, the history of the garden and the boat ride was very fun. I highly recommend the Shanghai tower and the alleyways. Something very unique and not something we see down under in Australia.
Today my family and I spent the day exploring Shanghai with our wonderful guide, Berlin. Berlin was extremely informative and hospitable, knows the best places to taste the local cuisine, and such a sweet heart. Our kids are 6, 5, and 3 years old and she was absolutely fantastic with them! Between the many sights, loads of information and delicious food, today was a highlight of our trip to China, due to many thanks to Berlin. I would highly recommend Berlin for a tour of Shanghai! Thank You, Berlin, for the 5 star tour!!!
We really enjoyed all aspects of our tour! It was the best close to our 2018 winter vacation in China! Snow provided us with a lot of pertinent information regarding the various places we visited - Shanghai Tower, Zhujiajiao Water Village, Yunan Gardens, and all the various food vendors. The lunch was superb and we could not get enough of the soy sauce pork. It was to die for! Our driver also got us quickly to all the various places and navigated Shanghai’s traffic really well. I will highly recommend this tour and Snow to all my colleagues who will be visiting Shanghai in the months to come. Again, we thanks for making our short stay in Shanghai very memorable!
5 stars review to Wilson from Amazing Shanghai Trip. This was our second trip with Wilson. My family and I certainly think he was fantastic. The water village was really pretty. The window view from the restaurant at Zhujiajiao was memorable. The trip from the water village to the Shanghai acrobat show was faultless to the last minute. No time delay. We could not have done any better. All potential travelers to Shanghai should consider this option. The food provided was also delightful. Alana the manager of the trip also made sure we are well looked after. She contacted us before and after the trip to make sure our needs were met. Never seen a better organised tour company. Our sincere thanks.
Also the acrobat show was riveting and has funny moments. My teenage kids loved the show.
