We were unable to attend this trip as I had a terrible cold. But our guide Alana offered to come and see me and bring antibiotics or a Doctor - Alana Wu is a lovely guide so any trip would be a treat with her, which is why I still rated it 5 stars. Thanks Alana!
My wife and I had the pleasure of being hosted by Alana in Shanghai for the Gokurakuyu hot springs and hot pot dinner. The entire evening was wonderful. Not only were the activities themselves thoroughly enjoyable, but Alana is like the ultimate ambassador for China; we felt as if we were being treated as personal friends rather than simply paying clients for a sightseeing tour. The quality of the entire experience was above and beyond what we could possibly have expected. We have one unscheduled day together in Shanghai next week, and we're really hoping Alana comes up with something else she can arrange for us then!
Our quick trip to Shanghai was made complete by our night boat tour and hot pot dinner. Alana was so helpful during a very busy time of the year. The lights were impressive and the VIP SEATS great! Her English was very good and she could help our daughter with her Mandarin Chinese. You could tell she was very experienced and knew the area. The meal was a lot of fun and a great way to end the night.
We would recommend this tour to anyone!
We would like to say thank you very much for Alana for taking us on this tour to the spa and dinner. From the start of the afternoon Alana, greeted us with a very friendly smile and was very prompt to begin the excursion. Alana was very intelligent and enjoyed having a conversation with us about the rich culture and history.
After a very relaxing trip to the spa at which we did not need to organise anything or worry about any of the paperwork. Alana then took us to a hot pot restaurant which was delicious and again Alana was very friendly and we enjoyed an enlightening conversation over our food.
The entire tour was excellent, very well organised and the easiest tour we have ever been on. I would highly recommend anyone to take this tour if they are looking for a very relaxing and peaceful afternoon and dinner. The transport organised was prompt and we did not wait longer than a minute for the bus and we did not get lost at any point in time. Thank you once again to Alana and we hope to use your services in the future.
Our tour guide, Alana was amazing! She spoke and understood English well, was very helpful in helping us choose our hot pot meal, and very sweet. Went above and beyond in emailing us info about getting to the Mag train. The hot springs had 10 different areas to enjoy different baths, nude tho!
This tour was worth it! We were so thankful we had an English speaking guide since we couldn't read mandarin. Our guide helped us order based on our preferences. Food was delicious and so much more than expected! Night river cruise was great and we appreciated the photos our guide took of us as well.
I had a wonderful time on this tour! I chose the the hot spring bath and the hot pot dinner. And Wicky was my guide. The bath is a very interesting place. Dont' get me wrong. It's interesting for all the good reasons. It is called Gokurakuyu. First, you get a key to a locker where you place your shoes. Then you get comfortable bath clothes shorts and a top in nice chinese patterns. There are separate areas for men and women where you shower and use the hot springs. Everybody is naked in this area, which is a bit strange for a westerner. But after a short while you get used to it and forget about it. Chinese men are not shy, and behave much more naturally than us Europeans. There are many nice pools/dips/springs for you to choose from. Bubbles, electric, hot and not so hot. Indoors and outdoors. Very clean, relaxing, comfortable and enjoyable. When you are done with the bathing, you put on your chinese/japanese attire, and you start exporing the three different floors of this huge place. They have a restaurant, they have wifi everywhere, they have a bar, several lounge areas and game rooms. There are kids there. But the kids dont dominate the place like they sometimes do in Europen cultures. Very relaxing and also exotic for a westerner. I enjoyed it tremendously. After the bath place, we went for a hot pot dinner which was not very far away. This was an authentic Chinese experience for me. I could not see many western tourists around. Food was wonderful! Wicky showed me how everything worked and ordered and fixed everyting. She was easy to talk to, and gave me a personal, memorable experience from real China which I shall not forget.
I very much enjoyed this tour! If you would like to try some local bathing culture and enjoye nice food with an excellent host, go for it. I very much recommend this tour.
