Tour with Berlin
, Jan 2020
When reading the reviews online of this tour you always come across the name Berlin as the guide. The reason for this is her enthusiasm for the tour and professionalism. She is an excellent guide, friendly, informative and hard working! Highly recommended.
Shanghai and Zhujijiao are wonderful places to visit.It really helped to have a brilliant tour guide like Berlin. Her knowledge was very good and so was her English.The driver was also safe and patient.I would highly recommend Berlin to anyone.
What a nice half day excursion to get away from the hustle of the city. We heard about these quaint little water towns on our tour of Shanghai. We are so glad we went. It was just me and my husband and we were picked up promptly at our hotel. The communicators prior to the trip were excellent. We switched hotels mud-trip and there was no problem making sure they picked us up at the new hotel. Our guide, Lynn, was amazing!!!. It was a 45 minute car ride to get there (longer back because of holiday traffic for which we were well warned ). She started at the onset to give us information about China and the history of these such towns. She was younger and energetic and excited to teach us new information. The nice part about the private car is that you get dropped off and picked up right in front. The city reminds me of Venice with little bridges and alleyways everywhere. Included was entrance to the beautiful gardens and the Temple in the town and a boat ride. All were great. Plus a bonus artist exhibition in the town!. Lynn was well knowledged and full of historical facts which we were quick to absorb. She showed us the shops and explained unique items and foods for sale and even bought us iced bites (liquid nitrogen ) which make it look like you are breathing Dragon smoke when you bite into it. Even tell local policeman laughed as I ate it! The alleyways are full of shops if you want to catch up on souvenirs. Lynn even helped us try to bargain on prices.
It was a great trip and didn't take up the whole day so we came back still with energy to explore more of Shanghai.
I would highly recommend this trip and Lynn. You won't be disappointed!!
It was our first time in Shanghai and this was our first tour while in town. All I can say is, we could not have asked for a better tour. Our guide May, was the perfect guide, fun day all round. I highly recommend May as your guide!
I wanted a half day tour and decided this would be the one as a private tour. I was not disappointed! Take this tour and be sure to request Berlin and take it private. She is extremely knowledgeable and very personable. She took her time to take us on this tour and explain everything in detail. She was able to answer our numerous question and introduce us to new things. We never felt rushed. This is a great contrast of new Shanghai vs old Shanghai. Be sure to ask for Berlin! Her boss Sophie also helped me out with an issue with an tour agency. Class act totally recommend this group!
What a fun surprise this tour was! My friend and I were on a 2 week tour in China, with 3 days in Shanghai & didn't realize that 1 of those days was 'on our own' until the night before. I quickly went on viator, not knowing if anything would be available for the following morning. I saw this tour & thought what the heck, we have nothing else to do. So happy we did it! We had a private guide & private driver. Water town had a beautiful garden we visited, took a boat ride, got to see lots of fun foods for sale- even decided to stop at a tea house. Really enjoyed it!!
I recommend everyone to take this trip from Shanghai. it was a bit rushed in my opinion as we didn't have time to look around the stores before returning to the city however the guide was very professional and informative. We learnt a lot about the culture and traditions and the place visited. The water village is very pretty and the boat ride totally recommended.
