Our day began with Rita meeting us at our hotel with a great smile and full of enthusiasm. Her English was perfect and after introductions escorted us to a new van where our driver for the day expedited our destination throughout the day. As the tour promised we began with the new Shanghai statarting with the “Bund District” where she explained not only architecture of the area but the history. Throughout the day we visited the trendy highlights of the French concessions to the Yu gardens of old. Everything was explained perfectly and all our questions answered. Lunch at a local restaurant was a wonderful experience and we ate more than I thought possible not wanting to miss a single delicacy. We continued on to the Tianzifang Market area where local vendors sold everything you could ever want. We were whisked around the city covering in 8 hours more than we could have ever done in 3 days. With limited time I felt we were able to get to know the real Shanghai and appreciate the local culture without the feeling that we missed a lot. Rita was wonderful and we appreciated her attention to detail

The local agent Sunny was very communicative via email and arranged an amazing tour with Mason. It was so good that we booked another day with them and Rita was our guide the next day. Both guides were amazing and knowledgable.

Our guide Lily was fantastic, we had a fun day - it really was the highlight of Shanghai. The attractions we went to were great and Lily knew everything there was to know. We were travelling during Golden Week holidays so it was crazy busy but this was not an issue and our guide knew where and when to go to each place. We enjoyed ourselves so much we booked another day tour with Sunny to go to Zhujiaojiao for lunch a couple of days later, which was also a great experience and Sunny was also fantastic! Would do it all over again!

We booked the all-inclusive private full day tour: Shanghai old and new highlights with Sunny as our tour guide. She was extremely professional, friendly, attentive to our needs, and provided detailed history of Shanghai during each point of our tour. She took us to the specific locations based on the minimal amount of tourists visiting the sites at that time, so we were able to enjoy the scenic destinations as much as possible. While the tour was intense so that we can fit all the destinations in, we did not feel rush. We definitely recommend this tour or any other tour with Sunny.

Great tour! We started out this tour first, since we wanted to know a little bit about Shanghai that way we know where to go eat or hang out at night time. Sunny was our tour guide for the day and she picked us up on time at the hotel. Since our hotel was near by a few popular activities, so we walked to the Old Shanghai for about 1 hr. tour and she explained to us a few special stores. Then we went to the Yu Garden for about 1-2 hours in the garden. The Yu Garden was Gorgeous! She talked about the history of the garden and showed us around the garden. Then she showed us the Bund. When we got to the Bund she explained the histor and things about area. My wife wanted some bobatea drink so she asked the driver to dropped us at one of the entrances that have good bobatea stand. Then we went to the temple. Beautiful temple! She was very patient with us while we did some praying. She explained to us about the temple and what each statue means. Lunch was delicious! My wife wanted to buy some tea, so our last stop, she took us to the tea shopping mall. Wish that we would have more time to browser around the mall. Thank you Sunny for the lovely day.

The perfect way to discover the main Shanghai highlights in one day.

This private tour was great! It was a full day we saw a park, this revitalized shopping alley area, the Yu garden, Bund, and also the pearl tower.

The tour guide forgot her name met us at our hotel and dropped us off at the restaurant we had reservation for near our hotel. Her English was good, and she also brought us to a really good dumpling restaurant near Yu garden.

The Shanghai city tours - indeed Shanghai is a vibrant city, full of life. The buildings and architecture are very impressive. Fei Fei was our tour guide, and she is fluent in English and efficient in presenting the history of the places. We as a group, thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would not hesitate to give our thumbs-up for the tour guide plus the tour.

Lily was fabulous in every way! She connected with us prior to the trip to make pick up seamless. She was at the station and met us as we stepped off the maglev and every detail from there on for the rest of the day was perfect. We ate amazing food, visited so many places we never would have found on our own with just a one day layover in Shanghai and she kept our whole family of 6 ages 16 to 50 content the entire day. If you have a long layover and want a great Shanghai experience, call Lily!!
