Shanghai Layover Tour
adamai2014, 07-01-2020
I had such a great experience with this tour company. My guide Wilson was very knowledgeable and responsive to what I wanted to see (I specifically asked for an opportunity to jewelry shop!). It was freezing and the driver even let me borrow a coat so that I could enjoy Shanghai. It was a great day and they got me back in plenty of time to make my flight. They also gave very specific instructions that made customs a breeze.
Highly recommend!
Amazing day in Shanghai!

Our guide Snow was so wonderful- she showed us so many sights in about 6 hours. We saw the Yu Garden, Shanghai tower, the Bund, French Concession and the Maglev train- and we had a delicious lunch. Snow was so sweet and great company all day. Pickup was easy- our driver was at the meeting spot with a sign. Would absolutely recommend to anyone with time to spare on a layover- this was an awesome way to see China for the first time.
Great fun with Snow in Shanghai!

Our tour guide, Linda, and her driver arrived promptly at our hotel. We toured Shanghai, seeing all of the popular tourist sites including the spectacular high rise buildings in Pudong. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with her and in Shanghai, even though it was a short visit. At the end of the tour, we were delivered to our cruise ship as scheduled. We highly recommend this tour and tour company. Everything went as planned with no problems at all! Linda was a gracious host!
Great tour!
