I highly recommend this tour, as it takes you to some of the oldest, most important sights in Shanghai's history -- and offers some shopping as well. A good first look at what makes the city special. Be warned, it's a heavy tourist area, expect crowds. My guide Zoe was excellent. Really, the best I have had around the world. She was professional, intelligent, well informed and passionate about China and the places we visited. She brought details to life during that really helped me understand and appreciate Shanghai and its sights. She was also flexible, changing our plans on the fly to suit my interests. And just a wonderful person to spend time with in a foreign city. China can be daunting, so having a guide made my visit smooth and fulfilling.

Highly recommended. My tour guide Mary provided a fun and interactive tour giving me information about the history of the gardens that you wouldn't get just walking around. Mary was very friendly and excellent guide.

Our tour guide Mary was great! She gave us a wonderful tour, was forthcoming with great details about the history and what we were seeing, and also had a great time posing for pictures with our travel companion, sock puppet. A tour definitely worth the cost!

This tour was really fun. We met at the meeting point and walked around the old town, including Yuyuan garden, Susie our guide was excellent. She was very relaxed and made the tour feel like we were walking around with a friend. She showed us many interesting places. We asked her about buying a Marjong set in Shanghai, so at the end she took us to a market and helped us purchase two for our sons at a really good price. We really enjoyed our morning with Susie.
