Best Tour! Great Service!! Fantastic Guide!!! Highly recommended!!!!
A successful trip, the guide had the necessary knowledge for what we have visited together all day!
Thanks for kindness Alana, the tour was perfect
Alana was the tour guide for my parents and I for a whole day private tour of Shanghai that included lunch, dinner and a face changing show.
Alana was very knowledgeable on the history of Shanghai, spoke good English, was patient, flexible and considerate towards my elderly parents and I during the 10 hour tour. The tour was long but well worth the time spent. I would highly recommend Alana as a tour guide and I wish her the best of luck with her future.

Our trip today with Snow was wonderful. She took us every where we wanted to go and was a wonderful guide. The lunch she took us to if local Shanghai cuisine was outstanding! If you have the chance to be i at our with Snow you will not be disappointed. We were more than pleased and feel grateful for such a great day.
I would recommend this tour. Vicky our guide was very friendly and lovely. She managed to place it together. We visited a few places and we got to know the city better.
As a note of advise - prior to the tour, have a look at the list and figure out what you wish to see and what your interest are.
The only disappointment was that we couldn't watch the face change mask show with the dinner. And there were no heads up that we will be watching the show.

Vicky was a great tour guide. Very pleasant and knowledgeable of the city of Shanghai. She made the tour fun, and made sure the guests with special needs were taken care of. Thank you, Vicky and driver, from all of us at Lumileds USA and Germany!!
We have just had an amazing tour of Shanghai with Snow. The pace was relaxing and enjoyable with lots of interesting information. We saw places we would never have discovered on our own. We had gorgeous traditional Shanghai food for a long leisurely lunch and covered and great variety of places. I would highly recommend her to all my friends and anyone reading this! A memorable enchanting day.
Snow was very helpful, courteous and lively and showed us around Shanghai. We had a very good day.
Thanks so much for the fantastic day our guide Snow and driver (Mrs Chang) treated us to today. Yes I know – being a tour guide is her job, but she went so much farther than that today. Considering the fact that Karen and I are non-Chinese-speaking and that this was our first visit to Shanghai, she made us feel that we had a ‘local friend’ showing us around the city in a welcoming, fun and educational way. Having been a teacher and university lecturer my entire life, I was particularly impressed by her knowledge of the city, her willingness to share so much Chinese culture and even her personal everyday life, all the while with a beautiful smile and fantastic sense of humour. We could not have had a more fantastic eight hours in the wonderful city.When we return to Australia, I will definitely recommend the company, Viator Activities, to our travel agent and more personally to our friends, but I will insist they book their Shanghai tours specifically requesting Snow as their guide. Once again, xiè xie! Cheers – Dan and Karen
This was a great tour. Lucy was a wonderful guide who shared so much history and insight into the sights of Shanghai! I highly recommend this tour!
I had only one day to see Shanghai and Alana really helped me get into what Shanghai has to offer. She was really flexible and attentive to my requests and focused on making sure that I enjoyed the day. Alana always came with good suggestions to take advantage of our time, booked tickets for me at the last minute, and made sure we had some rest time during the day in beautiful settings where I could take the pictures I was looking for. Based on today's tour with Alana, I am signing up for another tour next Saturday that I had not planned. She is that good! Please thank her for all her professionalism and care.
An amazing day on the private tour around Shanghai, Alana was fantastic and I got to tailor my day to get the most out of what I wanted to see. Was absolutely worth it, the local knowledge, ability to get around fast in a private car was unbeatable. Very well organised, big thumbs up. Would use this team again.
Had an amazing time, the private tour was the perfect option, had the opportunity to tailor my day to see the things that interested me the most, we got to avoid most if not all the crowds and had a fantastic lunch. A private tour guide also gives you that one on one local knowledge of their home city. Highly recommended and booking my next one day private tour.
We had a lovely and very informative day on our Tour of Shanghai with our guide Alana. We visited areas of interest that we would have found difficult to locate without Alana and her experienced driver. Nothing was too much trouble for them and our tour was tailored completely to our requirements. Our plentiful lunch was at a high quality restaurant. We would not hesitate to recommend this tour.
Our first day in Shanghai was so fun thanks to Vickie as our guide. She was very smart, eloquent and gave us special attention throughout the day. As English speakers who know no Chinese, she immediately put us at ease. We learned a great deal and she helped us to understand the culture, history and amazing local sights. An all day city tour with Vickie is the perfect way to start your time in Shanghai!
Alana was our guide for the day in Shanghai. She was wonderful and very thoughtful. We have had many guides and she was one of the best.
Vicki was an exceptional guide. She was very knowledgeable and graciously answered all of my questions. I had only one day to see the best of Shanghai. Vicki was able to show me the best sites and paced us well to fit it all in a full day. I highly recommend her as your guide. Thank you, Vicki!
Picked up at the hotel in a comfortable car by Alana, a highly competent and friendly guide who is great fun to tour with. We jointly composed an awesome blend of attractions that you would not be able to experience in one day without Alana; great concept. Totally relaxed and great! Definitely a pick!
This was the best day tour we have ever taken. I loved The flexibility of the itinerary with input from both me and the guide. Alana our guide was truest excellent. She was knowledgeable, intelligent and had excellent communication skills. She really went that extra mile to help us have a fantastic day. I strongly recommend both Alana or the tour more! Thank you so much for a day to remember forever!!
Alana was extremely friendly and we covered a lot in our trip. She was also very helpful with taking photos and even letting me use her camera when my phone was running out of battery. Even after the tour ended she was more than happy to spend some more time to let me take some pictures of the night lights. Tour was very satisfying and definitely would recommend!
My husband and I had a fantastic time on this trip. Alana sent me a what's app message confirming the anticipation of our arrival within hours of booking the tour. We were greeted promptly at 9:30AM in our hotel lobby by Alana and our driver with lovely local souveniers to take home. She brought a huge professional camera for the day, with promise to take pictures of us throughout the tour so that we can focus on the beauty, while she captured every moment. Once we were seated in our comfortable, air conditioned van, we went over our itenirary. Alana gave us many options of what we would like to do, and she did an incredible job accommodating all of our requests. In just one day, we managed to visit an incredible amount of places. We started with Buddah's Temple., a magnificent place of worship. Alana took the time to explain the meanings of all of the Buddah's, Gods and symbols. It was truly fascinating and beautiful. Afterwards, we talk a lovely walk through the French Quarter. An incredible oasis hidden in plain sight down a narrow street where you would never know it's there unless someone showed you. It was like stepping into a town square in Paris, sorrounded by lovely cafes, restaurants and shops. Next, Alana mentioned that there is also a Jewish Quarter, which we quickly said we would like to see as well. My husband and I had no idea that Shanghai was responsible for taking in almost 23,000 Jewish Refujees out of Europe during WWII and consequently saving their lives from persecution. The short, but heart-warming tour of the Jewish Temple and grounds was an incredible bonus to our day. For lunch, Alana took us to a popular local spot near the Shanghai Tower. We loved eating among the locals and the food was delicious. Alana took great care in making sure that our food was prepared to our strict Vegan specifications. After a quick Ferry ride across the river with the locals, we took a beautiful walk along the Bond Promanade, This highly manicured walkway along the river was beautiful, relaxing and enjoyable. The view of the skyline is breathtaking and the Europe inspired architechture was lovely. Next, we took a tour of the Yuan Garden. What an incredible experience to walk through the former house of a wealthy man that owned it over 400 years ago. The furniture, and traditional settings truly tells a story of the customs of an era so unfamiliar to ours. The gardens and beautiful landcapes sorrounding the house is something you would only read about in a historical romance novel. Alana's detailed explanationed of the many hidden symbols and treasures scatterred throughout the property, only added more awe to the experience. After the garden we took a walk through the busy market right outside the garden where locals gather to eat delicious traditional food, while tourists gather to buy local treasures and get a taste of China., Finally, Alana arranged for a delicous Dinner with a traditional face changing show to finish off our tour. Once again, she took great care to make sure that our dietery restrictions were met perfectly. The face chaging show was an incredible and fun experience to watch during dinner, and as throughout the entire day, Alana was right there with her fancy camera, capturing our reactions as we watched with fascination. Finally, we were safely delivered back to our hotel and sent off with hugs and waves as if we were old friends saying goodbye after a visit. The following morning, I awoke to an inbox full of pictures to go with our memories that will last a lifetime. Thank you Alana and Viator for an incredible day!!
We had really enjoyed a Shanghai day tour, guide was very nice to us. Amazing lunch, Shanghai tower was a good adventure and cruise was awesome. Specially tour guide was so nice and good behavior lady, also she speak English very well. Thanks Viator!
