Awesome private tour of Shanghai

our tour guide Snow did a wonderful job touring us today. aside from the places mentioned in the tour description, she happily added few places we requested to visit. she is very knowledgeable about Shanghai history and culture, as well as Taoism and Buddhism history and beliefs, so our tour was enjoyable at the same time very informative. Snow is also very thoughtful. she gave me, my husband and my kids gifts when she met us at the hotel lobby, including home-made snowcandies, which she made herself. for lunch, she took us to a good restaurant with delicious options for my picky-eater kids. over-all, I highly recommend this private tour to families who want to experience Shanghai in a very relax and enjoyable way. request for Snow as your tour guide because she is amazing!

we did the tour with two children. the guide responded to both and they liked it very much. The information content was also very good for us adults. informally, spontaneously responding to requests, we would do it again.

Berlin was a fantastic, friendly guide who answered all of our questions about Shanghai and had no problem with English. She took very good care of us all day. Zhujiajiao is great town to explore with extensive market and great food. We loved the garden visit. Berlin was keen to get our input and changed the itinerary to suit our interests. Definitely would book this tour with friends and request Berlin again.
