The tour was perfect. I was able to see so many sites and got to taste some of the famous Shanghai dumplings. Mary was nice and so accommodating. I didn't bring a coat and it was freezing cold, she took me around several shops to find one that I liked. She was also very knowledgeable in the history and culture of Shanghai. Overall great experience and would recommend it to anyone.

Our trip with this booking was Amazing! My wife and I had a full day layover in Shanghai, roughly 18 hours. We were sure we wanted to see some of the city but weren't sure how. We booked this tour through Viator, and it turned out perfect. Shortly after booking we were contacted through whats app and email, I was able to converse with an english speaking agent who took the details of my flight and preferences. We were met at the airport by a driver, who had a sign with our name, right outside immigration. The driver was ours for the whole day! We met our English speaking guide, Jenny, and began our day. Jenny spoke English better than some of my college professors. She was so efficient and knowledgable about the city. Jenny made us feel like we had the best guide in all of China. She took us up two sky scrapers to get amazing landscapes of the cityone even had a glass floor, though the cultural heart of the city, the original soup dumpling location for a feast, we traveled through several historic gardens, we went to a pearl shop, learnt how silk was spun, attended an authentic tea ceremony, visited a Confucius Center where I picked up some jade, We were even able to get some quality shopping done. We were really able to pack so many things into our day because of the quality of our guide Jenny, and the efficiency of both Jenny and the booking company. I would highly recommend this booking for your trip, it was so seamless and easy. We were able to get everything we wanted and more!

Great tour! Saw local life in Shanghai as well as famous landmarks!! There is no way I could have seen this much of Shanghai in such a short layover on my on my own. Surely, I would have gotten lost many times!

Best decision for several hours layover in Shanghai! If you want a quick, informative, fun experience to maximize your time - do this tour! I had 7 hours until my connecting flight and got to eat, shop and see about 6 major sites (solo traveler). Rem traffic is bad and takes 1 hr to/from airport!
