We loved this tour and Mary, our guide. She was excellent and did a great job of just giving us a great look at life in one of the older areas of Shanghai. We slowly strolled through some commercial and residential areas, she guided us through some of the shops, did local things like stopping to pick up a bag of local candy, etc.
We loved this tour and Mary, our guide. She was excellent--very well prepared, very familiar with the area we toured, and a very friendly and charming personality. This is a very interesting view of every day life in Shanghai.
The tour was excellent and very informative we enjoyed it very much.
Would highly recommend your company to friends and family
Our tour guide, Zoe, was great! I've spent a lot of time in Shanghai on business and even took time to 'tour' during previous visits. BUT, this was the first tour where I felt I learned, in detail, about how those who live and work in Shanghai actually live. We walked the communities different income levels, visited a realtor to learn about prices/space/location for apartments and homes, visited a variety of food stores to learn about the different types of food locals eat, learned about eastern medicine herbs and other sources for healing and health and even learned about how different people come to live in Shanghai school, work, government-incentives. Zoe not only explained everything that we were seeing, she was also able to answer any questions we presented. I took two 17 year olds on this tour with me and Zoe kept their attention. If you can request a tour guide for the morning tour, request Zoe!
excellent tour we loved every thing about it, our guide Zoe was the best she explained everything so clear.
loved it so much and would use your company again if we come to Shanghai again.
Excellent tour from start to finish. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing and hearing about the lives of the Shanghai residents. Tour guides pitched it right and kept me and my husband enthralled. It's a must to get off the tourist route and experience the real city.
A personal tour around the alleyways with someone who has lived there, very informative although we felt intrusive to the people who lived there at times
A really great opportunity to see part of Shanghai life that isn't usually accessible.Janny is an excellent guide.
It was a great tour to experience the local Shanghai life. We are glad you took this tour - very off the beaten track and a must do!

Of all the tours we took this really explained the life and living conditions of the local people. We were right in the lanes and alleyways talking to the local residents. We did not want the tour to end. Don'T miss this tour.
The weather had a huge effect on our experience as it rained steadily and I got soaked and cold. The focus was on three different types of residential housing It was interesting to go into the alleyways that we would never have dared to venture into on our own. I waylaid the guide to see food outlets that took my attention. We were never invited into a private house so that was misleading.
Great tour very informative and guide was the best , I just wished they would pick up at Hotel.
The tour was educational. The guide was knowledgeable. It too difficult trying to confirm the details as to where and when to meet. In other countries, it was much easier to communicate and know the details well in advance.
Since gmail is blocked in China, it was difficult to contact or receive communications.
