Shanghai Surprise

Kelly provided our family with the ultimate Shanghai tour experience, from beginning to end! Upon arrival, Kelly met us and helped to get us settled into our Air B&B accommodations. She shared her knowledge of Shanghai's history as we walked along the Bund area and visited Yuyuan Gardens. We had some time to walk through different exhibits in the Shanghai Museum and also visited the French Concession. During our time together, Kelly was very genuine and attentive ... and always available to answer any questions we had along the way.

Penny was amazing! She took us to all the good places… historic places, good places to eat, to shop, a lot of very interesting buildings of old and new. Penny was kind, very punctual, she is just perfect! We suggest all the people who come to Shanghai make sure you ask for Penny. We love her very much.  Shlomi & Ronit from SDEROT, ISREAL.

My husband and I had an Awesome experience while in Shanghai. Pingping was highly knowledgeable and super efficient. Pingping made our experience in Shanghai all the more memorable. She had great knowledge about the history. She took care of so many other requests that we made from her. Taking us shopping, getting us to try beautiful restaurants. Going to hidden corners of the city and off the trail places that were truly enjoyable. Pingping became more a friend than a guide for us. It is because of her that we cherished every moment in of our stay in Shanghai. Pingping we brought back great memories of You and Shanghai. It was so lovely for You to greet us at the airport with your awesome Smile.
Your country took us by suprise and we would love to come back again. You had a great sense of humour and lot of laughter and time just flew.
