Excellent! Thomas and Andres made a great team. It was a large group but I liked that and it was organized well enough that it ran smooth. Massive amounts of food, drink and laughs. Highly reccomend. Early in your trip.

Thomas was a fantastic guide - knowledgable, entertaining and caring. Looked after us, took us to places we would never had gone on our own, and we tried things we didn and #39;t even know existed! Hugely recommended way to experience a side of Shanghai you would NEVER see on your own.
