I would give the tour with Mary five out of five stars. While the sights and lights of the river cruise were amazing, Mary's welcoming attitude, knowledge of Shanghai's history and culture, English language skills, and people skills all combined to make the evening very enjoyable. We would recommend the company, the tour, and Mary to anyone.
Worth doing this, we really enjoyed it. We had a short car ride to the Bhund where we got the boat, really enjoyed seeing the Bhund lit up at night. It was quite cold so do dress warmly but we were well prepared with warm coat, hat, scarf and gloves and the cold didn't ruin the experience for us. Our guide Alana, found us seas in the VIP area so we had a good view from the front of the boat on the outside deck. Great photo opportunities and Alana also took photos of us on her i pad which she later emailed to us which was great to get a few photos with us both in. After the boat tour we had a short drive to the restaurant, Paradise Lost I think it was. Alana helped us choose and we were keen to try Shanghai dumplings. They were very good, very tasty. Great food, we selected several dishes and shared them between the three of us. A very easy trip and would recommemd seeing the Bhund at night from a boat and dinner. You could do this trip independently but if you want a no hassle, everything sorted for you approach, take this tour! Alana very helpful, her English is rxcellent and she explained what many of the buildings were along the Bhund together with a bit of the history of Shanghai and lead us through the menu too.

Queena, or guide for that private 2 people tour, was excellent ! We had the choice to choose the kind of meal for dinner: We chose shanghainese cuisine and it was really great. During the cruise, we were placed on a privileged part of the ship. Thus, we enjoyed a lot the nice views of Shanghai night from the river. Thanks a lot for everything Queena !
The meal was excellent. Queena was delightful and anxious to make sure we had a good time. We had the best seats in the house for the river cruise. We would recommend her to anyone visiting Shanghai. From Clement Kelly.
Summer was a great guide, very nice and knowledgeable. She and the driver were kind, careful and punctual. The restaurant Summer took us to was also very nice, with fresh and well cooked food, which we enjoyed very much. The river cruise was really nice, and Summer provided a lot of information regarding both sides of Shanghai. We will suggest our friends to take this tour if they happen to visit Shanghai in the future. Review from Cristina and Luis Menendez
I give the tour 5 stars, everything was as stated on the brochure. The guide was waiting for me at 5pm in the lobby. I was driven to a very nice restaurant and the guide was helpfully letting me know about my surroundings and interesting facts about Shanghai. The meal was excellent and more than I could eat and the floor show was interesting. The driver did not keep us waiting at any point. The cruise was spectacular with the guide paying extra so I could get a seat at the front of the boat. All in all I was very happy with the tour and would recommend it to any one looking for a lasting memory of Shanghai.
Queena was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly with great English and personality - was on time and took us to a very nice local style restaurant where the food was excellent. The driver was punctual and and river cruise was just superb. It was a surprise to be VIP in a special room which made the experience even better. Highly recommend Queena and her company if you are in Shanghai and are looking for a tour.
We were two colleagues on a business trip to Shanghai, and had an afternoon available and found this boat trip with Viator. A very charming guide, Alana, picked us up at the Hotel, and took us to a very nice "dumpling" restaurant. In was very interesting to talk to a local girl about the way of life in a fascinating city! The boat trip was amazing, and the Shanghai skyline from the river, at night, with the display of all kinds of colours and lights from amazing buildings, is a must see when visiting! The guide arranged for us to sit outside on the boat, which was great! Thanks a lot! From Petter Slyngstadli.
Thanks very much for the very well organized guided tour. Everything was fine from picking up at the hotel to the boat trip, no waiting and VIP entrance, the things Alana told us about Shanghai during the trip to the delicious food place she brought us. We enjoyed the tour and we will recommend to our friends and colleagues.
Alana was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, informative and shared many things with us. She loves Shanghai and her enthusiasm made our excursion brilliant. She was on time and very professional. Alana told us the best place to stand on the boat and took us to the best restaurant we have experienced in China. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the beer was cold. Overall we would highly recommend this excursion in Shanghai. She took photos for us to remember. Don't miss this trip. Judy and Laurie from Melbourne Australia
Fantastic night last night. We enjoyed Viator company. The food was great. The guide Queena did a 5-star job! Will recommends to our friends.
I rate this tour at 5 Stars for many reasons. My tour guide was very kind and informative. Her English was very very good and I learned a lot about Shanghai and Greater China. She was waiting for me in the lobby of the hotel and the private driver was waiting on us as we walked out of the hotel. As this was a private tour, we were able to enjoy a very nice meal without all of the fuss of a group. From there, we went on the river for a very beautiful sight. I was extremely pleased to have VIP access to avoid all of the crowds. This was a very special treat. From there, I was dropped off at my hotel by the same private driver. This was such a great experience and I recommend it to anyone. I was on my own while traveling on business but will return with my family and book the same tour and request my guide again.
Our tour with Vicky was a very enjoyable evening. The dinner was a delicious variety of food. From there we were taken to board the boat for the evening cruise, which was a beautiful show Of extraordinary lights on all the buildings. Vicky was very knowledgeable and gave us all the information. We wanted to know and then some. We enjoyed our evening with her very much, she is a very warm, Considerate person and does her job extremely well, her English is very good and very clear. We would definitely recommend her for any tour she might take. We wish her all the best and thank her very much for a wonderful evening.
The tour and the tour guide was amazing and we would recommend anyone going to Shanghai to do this tour
At the end of the tour our guide also gave us a special gift of our tour
The dinner was fantastic
The 'Shanghai Night River Cruise Tour with Xinjiang Style Dining Experience' was definitely one of the highlights of our visit to Shanghai. Me and my family were picked up punctually at the hotel by our tour guide, Alana. Dining options were flexible and we had a lovely dinner at Paradise Dynasty sampling an assortment of colourful dumplings and traditional Chinese dishes and then enjoyed the Huangpu River Cruise Tour with VIP Seating away from the crowds. A great opportunity to take in the beautiful views of Shanghai and take photos. A wonderful evening in Shanghai!
Alana has a great personality in addition to being a very knowledgeable tour guide. We had arrived from Nanjing and scheduled to leave the next day. Alana made this last minute excursion possible and very enjoyable. I will request Alana by name during future visits to Shanghai. Thank you Alana!
The tour was really fantastic. We were treated like VIPs. After being picked up directly from our hotel, we went to a lovely restaurant, authentic and we could choose what we wanted with expert guidance from Alana. We had all different types of food and we really enjoyed it, even our younger son was catered for. After our meal, we taken in our luxurious mini van to take a river cruise. We were given the best seats right at the front of the ship. We got some beautiful photos and Alana was full of information about the city of Shanghai and where to get the best snaps. We could not believe how great the tour was and how much we enjoyed it. Nothing was too much trouble for our tour guide. I would not hesitate to use her again and I would totally recommend her to anyone wanting to feel part of Shanghai.
Summer was an amazing guide for my friend and I. She was very knowledgeable of the Shanghai history and architecture within the city. She was very kind and pleasant as well. The restaurant she chose was delicious and she definitely enhanced our Shanghai experience. If I know anyone who will be traveling to this city I would recommend they have a guided tour with Summer.
Alana, you did an excellent job. We could not have made better plans. Thanks for a great dinner and tour. Will ask for you the next time wife are in Shanghai. Jim and Donna
Had a good time with Alana Wu. She is a great guide. Wonderful English and she is smart for her job. Cruise was great and we enjoyed the lighting in the Bund. Wish her all the best in tour business.
My husband and I had a wonderful evening with Alana on the Shanghai Night River Cruise Tour with Xinjiang Style Dining Experience. We booked this tour very last minute but local tour operator was able to arrange car pick-up and tour guide with limited notice. Alana and driver picked us up at hotel promptly and we were off for a wonderful evening on the town. The restaurant Alana picked for us was local not touristy just like the tour description indicated and the food was fantastic. We both enjoyed a selection of different Xinjiang Style dishes & cold beer. What was nice is that the menu was not pre-determined, we picked what we wanted to eat and drink from the restaurant menu. There was also entertainment provide that evening at the restaurant which added a nice touch to the dining experience. After diner we took a lovely 1 hour cruise on the Huangpu River. It was a hot but clear July evening in Shanghai so the view was amazing. Alana treated us to the VIP section on the boat so our view was not restricted and there was no crowd. Would highly recommend this evening tour if you are looking for great local food and wonderful views of Shanghai. Alana was very kind and provided us with a lot of information on the tour. Great tour all around!!
We had a wonderful night. Snow is an excellent guide who is kind and informative and who was committed to ensuring we had the best experience possible. The restaurant was a great choice - the food was excellent and it was a great atmosphere at a busy local restaurant. We were very pleased that Snow could dine with us at the restaurant- we enjoyed her company and being able to talk to her during the meal. The river cruise was fantastic and we enjoyed hearing about the history of Shanghai during the night. Thank you.
This tour was great!! Icy was wonderful. She is a very nice young lady. Great tour for those short of time in Shanghai!
It was an amazing night, we enjoy every minute. My family didn't speak English but Alana was so helpful, kind and patient. They were very happy with the cruise and the VIP spot Alana got for us. The restaurant was amazing, all the food was nice even though we ordered some really spicy food. We love the experience, the atmosphere and all the history she shared with us. I highly recommended the tour with her because her attitude is the best to get a really nice experience. Thanks so much to help me to made my family happy. We have such an amazing time! Gracias por la buena energía y por la compañía! Att: Guerrero Family!
The tour is great, and the tour guide is friendly and give us more information. Many thanks!
