Very nice day!

Our tour guide, Linda, and her driver arrived promptly at our hotel. We toured Shanghai, seeing all of the popular tourist sites including the spectacular high rise buildings in Pudong. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and in Shanghai, even though it was a short visit. At the end of the tour, we were delivered to our cruise ship as scheduled. We highly recommend this tour and tour company. Everything went as planned with no problems at all! Linda was a gracious host!

This was a fantastic use of time. Our guide, Alana, was great. I appreciated the early contact giving us information regarding immigration, where to meet, etc. We didn't have a lot of time but we felt we used the time well and got a good feel for the city for sure. We would certainly recommend this to other travelers with just a day layover.

I had a wonderful day. The company provided prior information which made the logistics including entering China very smooth. The driver was quite accommodating. The tour guide, Daisy, was fantastic. She was knowledgeable and professional, yet personable. She answered all of my questions and provided extra information. The day was very fun. Of note, I had seen some of the usual sites previously so she adjusted the agenda to accommodate my own interests. The tempo was great and I did not feel any time was wasted. I would definitely recommend this tour!

The tour was perfect and we got to see all the places we wanted to see in a short period of time. Snow also picked a fantastic place for lunch and was EXTREMELY helpful in helping us order. She was also patient with us as we saw all the sights in Shanghai and was extremely knowledgeable about all of them. Snow also customized the tour for us to ensure we got to see what we wanted to on the tour. I would highly recommend.

Shanghai Stopover

Our family of 5 adults (parents, adult children and grandfather) had a 12 hour stopover in Shanghai on our way home from London to Brisbane and didn’t want to stay at the airport. This tour is great. We were met on arrival by the driver, driven to town to pick up our guide. Wilson showed us the city highlights and was very informative. After the tour, we were driven back to the airport with time to spare before our next flight. Tour duration was approximately 7 hours inc travel time to and from the airport. Communication prior to the tour was excellent. I absolutely recommend this tour to anyone with a lengthy stopover in Shanghai.

Great tour and managed to do everything quickly so I could see everything before leaving even though my layover was on the shorter side. Favorite part was Alana coming to meet us with breakfast and her great picture taking skills. Driver was great and on time. It would have been nice if could build in a snack break in French quarter or something.

We had a fantastic layover tour with Queena! We had a 10 Hour layover and wanted to make the most of it. Alana sent detailed instructions on how to navigate and get the 24 hour transit visit, which made it very easy and not stressful. We were promptly picked up at the airport and driven directly downtown. We visited many areas of Shanghai. Queena was super knowledgeable about the history of Shanghai and shared wonderful stories about Chinese culture. She treated us to the best dumplings we’ve ever had, which was definitely a highlight. I highly recommend this tour!

My wife and I participated in the "Flexible Shanghai Overlay Tour", which I had booked via Viator.I can recommend this tour to anyone who wants to combine aiport pickup with a sightseeing of all highlights in Shanghai. Our tour guide yesterday was Alana Wu.She was the best tour guide we ever had out of many guides in China.She is very competent and communicates clearly the main topics of the sightseeing highlights without losing herself in too much details as many other tour guides do. In addition she is very friendly and helps you with everything, even with shopping for wine. She is also very flexible: e.g. our flight had two hours delay and still we could see all the main points of the highlights we had defined before. We would book her again any time.
