Shanghai Surprise

I have been to Shanghai several times, yet this day tour made me appreciate more the culture and the development of one of the most beautiful cities in China. Our guide is very fluent in English and explained the history and development of Shanghai. Recommending this trip to all.
Shanghai overview

Alena was terrific. She knows Shangahi. This is a full day excursion with walking. The Shanghai Art museum is just one of the stops for 1 hour. Of course, its too short, but this is an overview. So you need to pace & time yourself in the museum so you get it overall. One could get stuck in the Chinese bronzes for three days.

Tu Garden is also interesting AND a good shopping experience.

I would change the lunch location.
Excellent Tour!

Frank is an excellent tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and takes care of his clients. He even took pictures and sent them to me by WeChat.
Lovely way to spend a day

Tom is a good guide. Full of information, dates, facts and figures. We visited the Shanghai Museum, three different temples, a silk factory, the jade and pearl center and a large open air flea market/mall area and the Bund. Every stop is an opportunity to shop, but I really felt it in the silk and jade shops. The shop workers hovering, pointing out sales and making suggestions. The tour group was less than 10 people which was great.
Shanghai tour including Jade Buddha Temple and The Bund

Over all the tor was good but the following areas of improvement can be considered

Instead of visiting the Bund in the afternoon, evening visit should be preferred as the evening lights can be seen,

The tour guide should ensure that the tourist follow strict timelines. In my tour there were only three of us. My self and one elderly couple. After lunch the tour guide took us to a pearl show room and the elderly couple was allowed to spend unlimited time in the showroom for shopping. More than one hour was wasted on this.
