Tour with Alex
LynetteV402, 01-12-2019
We were picked up on time from the cruise port, and commenced our tour of Shanghai. Alex was amazing, ensuring we went to see the sights we were interested in. We had an amazing lunch at the Shanghai tower, and Alex picked great tasty food for us. We saw the Jade Budda, Shanghai tower and the French Concession. Alex did a amazing job and we had a walking tour of many sights in the area, as Alex once lived in the area and knew the locals. Highly recommend this tour.

We have very much enjoyed the tour with Lemon. Her English was impeccable, she managed to show us a lot of Shanghai places of interest within a short period of time that we had, and she even accommodated our request for traveling on the magnetic levitation train. Five stars!
Layover at Shanghai

They gave us very good service. And they took care of us very well. Especially Snow, our tour guide. She is very friendly and shared her knowledge about Shanghai. We went to Shanghai Tower, Yu Garden and the Bund. It was a truly great experience thanks to them! Will definitely book them again.
maximized our day, learned a lot. Didn't feel rushed at all.

We enjoyed every bit of the tour! The weather was perfect, not too hot not too cold. The sights were amazing and the tour guide was very friendly. All throughout the day we never ran out of things to talk about, no awkward moments, and lots of things to learn. Jung was very knowledgeable and able to answer most, if not all, of our random questions about the tour and China in general. I liked that we didn’t have to act like we were tourists. It attracts less unwanted attention because it looked and felt like we were just hanging out in the city with a friend. We were able to try out things that interested us during the day, and we were able to walk around any of the stores we wanted to, other than the ones that were part of the tour. Most of all WE NEVER FELT RUSHED to go from one place to another. We were able to enjoy, relax, and just take in all the beauty of the different places. Loved it. Definitely recommend!
Perfect way to spend a layover!

Our tour guide Judy and driver Li were both wonderful - Judy was so knowledgeable, personable, and did a great job allowing us to learn and have a little fun. Our food was delicious and the van which drove us to and from our destinations was practically new - comfortable and very clean. I would definitely recommend this tour for anyone with a long layover wanting to experience Shanghai first hand.
