    My son and I had a BLAST with Caroline!! We were able to go to places we wanted to visit. Caroline was very friendly, kind, knowledgeable and speaks fluent English and she’s also a foodie. We enjoyed and learned a lot from the tour. Thank you! I highly recommend this tour. Caroline has been punctual, flexible, and eager to make us feel comfortable while touring around: a very pleasant companion!! She has always been competent and helpful, informative in a fun/interesting way.

It was easy from the beginning with Alana to schedule and update the tour up to our expectations showing great flexibility.Despite the pick up point was difficult to reach, it happened punctual.The driver behavior, driving and the cleaning of the van were perfect, with no delays at all!The visits and the explanations were amazing. We do appreciate the whole team for the effort as we had a great time and will recommend the tour to our colleagues!

    From start to finish this tour is exceptional. We visited Yu Gardens, Shanghai Tower followed by dinner (excellent quality local cuisine) and then a River Cruise. The content of the tour is top notch and the attention and organisation we received from Queena was simply outstanding. Queena's enthusiastic and friendly nature ensured a seamless and thoroughly enjoyable experience for our entire group of fifteen people. Totally recommended ! Thank you Queena.

    My wife and I spent a perfect afternoon in Shanghai. Snow did a very good job. When we saw a big crowd of people waiting at the entrance to the museum she easily found an alternative program. The food in the Shanghai tower was excellent and the scenery boat tour a great finish for this lovely day. Thanks to Snow we even got a free upgrade to the VIP area on the boat! We learned a lot of this City and we had good fun with her. We give her 2x 5 stars for this perfect tour.

    This tour is fantastic. We never could have navigated all the sights ourselves. Wilson is very friendly and approachable. He proactively shares interesting details about Shanghai and each site we visited and patiently answered all of our questions. And the dinner and cruise capped off a perfect 1/2 day tour!

    Wilson my guide and my tour were OUTSTANDING. The day was planned perfectly and the sites we visited were interesting and very well explained. The time spent on Shanghai's best attractions and even in the car, explaining and pointing out the highlights of the city were clear, precise and exciting. I highly recommend this tour.

    We met a really super guide named Alana Totally fluent in English. She took her time to explain us everything in detail and inform us on the extra activities to do in Shanghai. Totally recommend her.

    A 5 star review to Wilson from Amazing Shanghai Trip ,The organisation was fantastic and it saved a lot of time. The night river cruise was easily a highlight of the trip. Wilson was also the photographer and nothing was too difficult for him. He also smiled.The Shanghai tower view was not as expected as the view was not crystal clear due to Shanghai's smog. Alana was kind enough to change the original date to the following day due to rain.So this was the best we could hope for. Thanks Wilson and Alana. Highly recommended to any tourist. Tourist should also consider Oriental Pearl tower. Not as tall but the view was better. Go at dusk to see the day and night view.
