I’m here for a layover in Shanghai and because I'm only here for a short time, I wanted to make the best of it. I wanted to experience as much as I can in such a short time and I'm so glad I booked this tour! I got to visit so many places and try so much of the local food. It started when I got off my plane and when I left the arrival hall, there was a driver waiting for me with my name on a paper. Afterwards, he escorted me to a van where we drove to the city to meet up with Berlin, my tour guide. She's the best. The tour was customized to my interests and on my time schedule. She showed me amazing places, food, and even this amazing Starbucks. I'm not much of a Starbucks person but this will definitely be the coolest one you ever visit. It even has a factory inside where you can watch and the food is so fancy there. I totally recommend this tour. I wouldn't have been able to experience this much of Shanghai in such a short time on my own.

Our family of 5 adults (parents, adult children and grandfather) had a 12 hour stopover in Shanghai on our way home from London to Brisbane and didn’t want to stay at the airport. This tour is great. We were met on arrival by the driver, driven to town to pick up our guide. Wilson showed us the city highlights and was very informative. After the tour, we were driven back to the airport with time to spare before our next flight. Tour duration was approximately 7 hours inc travel time to and from the airport. Communication prior to the tour was excellent. I absolutely recommend this tour to anyone with a lengthy stopover in Shanghai.

Snow was amazing and very knowledgeable about Shanghai. We are a family of 6 from the United States having a 12 hour layover in Shanghai. Our driver was waiting for us as we passed through Customs and promptly took us to meet Snow to begin our tour. We visited the Shanghai economic area which was very impressive. Then we visited Old Shanghai and Snow gave us a tour of the area and pointed out a lot of the area's rich history. Later, she took us to Yang's dumplings which was great. She ordered for us a variety of authentic Chinese dishes. Lastly, she took us to the Yu Garden which was beautiful. Snow was very knowledgeable about its history. Overall, Snow was a fantastic tour guide and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone visiting Shanghai. She made our layover a very enjoyable one.

Snow was a great guide! She took us to eat the famous pork dumplings and other great food! From there we went to the Garden, walked along the river to see the history of Shanghai. Snow was very knowledgeable and communicated in English very well. Our quick trip ended with a ride on the super fast Maglev Train back to the airport. Our family of five is very thankful for the experience and recommend this to anyone!

Very well organised tour from the get go. Great communication to organise pick up from airport and a letter provided to help get through for a day visa. Our driver was waiting with a comfy luxury bus. Snow our tour guide was fantastic and took us on a great tour of Shanghai. We did so much in such a short time. We visited New Shanghai and Old Shanghai, bund, Yu Garden and the French concession. Can not forget lunch which was the best dumplings we have ever had. Got to do some shopping and sample some more local cuisine. Would highly recommend Snow, Alana and the team .

The views from the financial district of the modern Shanghai were amazing. Great first stop. We then took the sightseeing tunnel to The Bund. Snow was so knowledgeable about all the buildings and history of the different neighborhoods. We did two more quick stops at the Yu Garden and the French concession. Finished off the whirlwind tour with a delicious local meal at Yang’s Dumpling. Amazing way to spend a long layover in Shanghai!

We took the Shanghai layover tour with Snow. All logistic were perfect. They picked us up from the airport on time. Their transit visa recommendation was a big help. We had a wonderful day In Shanghai, covered all parts of the city and tried a lot of delicious food. Snow was very friendly and knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information. She was really accommodating. There were no rush, she walk with us on our pace. Our favorite spot was Yu Garden. It was really beautiful place. Definitely recommend this tour and her services. We give her 5 stars.

Wilson did a great job telling me all about Shanghai and the sights we saw. He told me a lot about local culture and answered all my questions. The tour was very smooth from pickup to drop off. I got to see the Chinese garden, the main shopping area, had amazing dumplings, saw one of the main temples and then walked all around the Bund. It was a great day- thank you Wilson!

Berlin was our guide for today and she made the trip fun for the whole family. The tour was the perfect balance of structure and flexibility, showing us the highlights of Shanghai while allowing us to stop at any shops/sightseeing areas of our interest. Berlin was also fantastic in answering all of our questions right away! I would recommend this tour to anyone who is visiting Shanghai and it has made us excited to visit again.
