Phenomenal Shanghai day tour

This Shanghai day tour is amazing. The guide and company exceeded my expectation. Despite the disruption of plans due to typhoon in-fa the company was flexible to reschedule my tour to a brighter excellent for the tour. From the start to finish I was impressed. I can say from their quick response to questions and help with every detail their service was impeccable. My guide Snow arrived on time to pick me from my hotel. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Shanghai and made sure that I visitited all the important cultural spots that I was keen to visit. We started with the Yuyung garden and visited many other sites with historical significance. She did a phenomenal job and the day went better than I had expected. I would recommend the tour to travellers coming to Shanghai whether in groups or as individuals because of the great service they offer the that exceeds expectations.

Perfect day trip with Berlin! She picked me up from my hotel, with a very comfortable car, and we got right into the tour. our itinerary was: Jade Buddha Temple, Yuyuan old street, yuyuan garden, tianzifang, French concession, propaganda museum, shanghai world expo museum, and the bund. It was a super flexible tour, and Berlin answered all my questions. When I got back to my hotel, I even received a little welcome to shanghai gift from the tour company.

The tour guide, Snow, was very knowledgeable, spoke English very well and did an excellent job explaining all the places we visited. The car and driver also were excellent. The Jade Temple and the evening river cruise were fantastic. This is a great tour to see the main sights of Shanghai.

Excellent day tour

Excellent tour to see Shanghai in one day. Daisy was fully knowledgeable about the history and culture, and ensured that I had a chance to see so many different things. She took me to a great little dumpling restaurant for lunch, and was always checking in to see that I was comfortable and enjoying the day.
