A beautiful experience!

We were well taken care of the entire evening, from the pick-up at our apartment until we were brought back home several hours later. The cruise was spectacular and our guide Snow seemed to know all the buildings and told us stories as we looked out over the brightly lit buildings. We will visit the restaurant again and also do the tour on the river when guests are allowed to travel again.

I would say the Thai restaurant was maybe the highlight. The food was fantastic! It was some of the best Thai food I’ve ever had.
Shanghai Birthday Trip 2019

I could not think of a better way to celebrate my 40th with a group of my closest friends. Shanghai Night River Cruise did a superb job and had the best attention to detail. Wilson, our host, met us in the hotel lobby and escorted my group to a fabulous dinner (complete with entertainment). Since no one in our group spoke Chinese, he translated for us and gave us little known history of the area. He ended our night with a wonderful cruise along the Bund. Did I mention the VIP room on the boat?!? I HIGHLY recommend this company to take care of your every need. This was the most memorable birthday ever!!
Starry Night on Huangpu River

This was our third day in Shanghai, and it had been raining. We were worried about a rain washout for our river cruise. Luckily the weather held up for the trip. It was only when we got back to the hotel that it started raining again.
We were pleasantly surprised by the arrangement. Previously, we had taken trips with more than 50 people who had to be picked up from different hotels. On this occasion, the trip was solely for our group of four persons.

The evening began with a pickup from our Pudong hotel. We were taken to the pier where the guide Jane jumped on. She had gone to the pier to purchase the tickets beforehand in order to guarantee our seats. We were taken to a Thai restaurant. Jane asked us repeatedly whether we were okay with Thai food. Of course we were. Whereas our other trips often have mandated menus, we were free to order whatever we wanted. We rated the Thai restaurant was better than average as compared to the other Thai-food restaurants that we have been to in Southeast Asia (Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc).

After the meal, we were taken to the pier for the river cruise. Jane asked us to take a seat while she checked for boarding. When ready, she signalled us to go forward. Once we got on the cruise, Jane upgraded us to the VIP section in front of the boat so that we can have an unobstructed view.

We have taken many river cruises before (in Hong Kong, Singapore, New York City, San Francisco, Paris, Miami, Vancouver, Sydney, etc) but nothing compares with Shanghai. This was a simple out-and-back route, hugging the shore to make sure that both Pudong and Puxi are viewed in close. Pudong featured the new skyscrapers while Puxi featured the old Pudong buildings, all lit up for the river cruises.

We enjoy this trip tremendously. Thank you Jane!
Wonderful experience

Pamela was a knowledgeable and helpful guide. She was able to plan in such a way that we didn’t need to wait for Long to board the cruise. And she got us VIP seating, away from the crowds and with a superb view!
