City trip to Shanghai
KurtW811, 30-12-2019
We booked this venue to get most out of our time.
We were picked up ahead of time by our guide Mark. Mark drove us around in a super clean car. We visited all major places in about 3.5 hours. Mark's driving style was superb. There was not one single question Mark was not able to answer.
We recommend this venue to everyone new in the city with very little time.
Hangpu night River Cruise

Mark was our guide. He is the best tour guide I have ever had! He contacted me by email prior to our tour, he had a message for me at the hotel, welcoming us to China and letting us know details of our upcoming tour. He called us on the day of the tour to make sure we knew when and where to meet him. He picked us up at our hotel and had a great van for us. There was a driver and Mark the tour guide who accompanied us. Everything was smooth and seemless. Mark is kind and very knowledgeable. His English was perfect. The cruise and the the tour of Shanghai was beautiful and lots of fun for our family of 7!!! The age range was 9-50 in our party and we all had a great time. I highly recommend this tour and MARK!!!! We learned a lot about China and Shanghai!
Awesome river cruise and photography tour

Tom was an extremely knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. Pick-up ahead of time at the hotel with the 45 river cruise as first stop. Amazing to see the lights of the Bund and adjacent Huangpu with the Pearl Tower, Bottle Opener and Shanghai Tower as the highlights. Yuyuan lights and old town as well as the French Concession (lively Xintiandi) by night are a Paradise for photographers and to take in traditional and modern Shanghai. Great tour, great guide and can only recommend!
Amazing guide!

Recommended first night in Shanghai

Had the tour with Mark just some hours landing in Shanghai from Europe. Despite a rather raining night it was still very enjoyable both the cruise as well as visiting the Old Town and the French Concession. My wife and I visitied all places again the next couple of days, and with the insight from our guide Mark this was for us a smart way of exploring Shangahi.
