    If you ever have the pleasure of visiting Shanghai and need a tour guide, there is no one better than Celine who works for Jenny’s Shanghai tours! Celine gave us a brilliant tour of Shanghai giving us lots of interesting information but also helping us navigate all the difficulties with a foreigner in China trying to work out the various QR codes required for each place if interest in these Covid times. We had two days with Celine and each day was a brilliant and flexible to what we wanted to see and do. She listened to what we were interested and made great recommendations, she and the driver did everything and above to accommodate our needs. We spend one day in Shanghai seeing all the sites. (Would def recommended TV tower - although I am terrified of heights). The next day a water town a little outside of Shanghai. Celine also took us out and recommended night spots where we could get a good view on the bund or play shuffleboard at BrewDog. She also went above and beyond for my friend as money was stuck in his WeChat account and for some reason his account was blocked. Celine spent hours on the phone speaking to various difficult people from the company for us to return home to Scotland and his money was returned to his account!. So if you are looking for tour guide use Jennys tours and request Celine. Her sense of humour her knowledge of the city and her commitment to her clients was amazing! I would also recommended Jenny for any other city in China she does tours as she was very easy to deal with especially with paying for the tour ( more WeChat difficulties) Thanks again Jenny/Celine

    Highly recommend Jenny and her team. First, Jenny was kind enough to reschedule my tour not even 24 hours before it was due - really appreciated her flexibility. Then, my guide Celine was absolutely terrific. She was extremely knowledgeable, full of energy and she made sure I would get the best out of my day. I have a much better understanding of the history of Shanghai and got a glimpse at many sites and venues I would love to go back to. Many thanks Jenny and Celine, you made my tour very special!

    It's impossible to see the all highlight sites of Shanghai just for one day. Personally I'm visiting Shanghai for a second time and as previous time 2 years ago I booked (again) the services of Jenny's Tours. The preliminary communication for arranging the tour with her is very easy and her advices were priceless. The all their guides are excellent professional, but Celine is my favourite. She is speaking 4 languages and her knowledge about ancient and modern history of Shanghai is a comprehensive. Celine and the driver were very friendly, kind and patiеnт with us in cases when we delayed and help us to enjoy of our one day memorable adventure in Shanghai. Thank you very much !

    Our family had a great day exploring Shanghai with Apple! We currently live in Pudong, but had not had a chance to see many parts of this beautiful city. Apple did a great job in showing us old streets and parks, with tons of culture and delicious food, to the touristy Yu Gardens and a Huangpu River Cruise. She was extremely patient also with our boys as they got cranky from the heat. We will definitely book another Tour with Jenny (and hopefully Apple too) in the near future as we explore surrounding towns of Shanghai.

    My two friends and I had an incredible experience in Shanghai for our Layover. Jenny has excellent communication for helping me set up the tour. Our driver and tour guide for the day were very friendly and welcoming and took us to some fantastic locations for an authentic tour of Shanghai. Our guide is a local Shanghai girl and very knowledgable of the area and it’s history.

    My son and I were visiting from San Francisco and needed to see the sights in one day. We were blessed to meet Vivi who showed us all of the fascinating sights of the city and was fun to be with. I highly recommend you book her if at all possible. Jenny was great to work with and both ladies had excellent English. I will definitely be back in touch when we return to China.

    We had a great experience with your tour. Peggy gave us a great tour of Shanghai and we loved hearing about the different perspectives of the different generations currently living in Shanghai. The food was amazing - we will be dreaming about Yangs Dumplings! We were able to see everything we expected except the view of the Bund/View from TV Tower in daytime because the weather didn't cooperate. We loved the contrast between old and new in Shanghai. Claire also gave us a great day out of the city, so peaceful and quiet. All the comments on facebook were that they didn't know that there was such beauty near Shanghai. Again the food was great and we loved that it was local 'real' restaurants and not chains that cater to tourists. All of the drivers and cars were great as well. We used Private Transport with Jenny and Disney was probably the hardest thing we did! I'm very glad that we got the deluxe premier pass, it made all the difference. The lines were longest of all the Disney's we have visited. I would warn future guests that it is hard to find a cast member that speaks English if you need help with something specific. Finding our way back to the hotel was okay, but I would follow up with Disney to see if they are going to be limiting bus use to hotel guests as it looked like the person at the bus was asking for room keys. BUT using Jenny for Transport was easy and comfortable! Overall the customer service was far superior to our private tour with the larger tour company we used for our visit in 2017. I'm happy to recommend your tour service to anyone in the future and will contact you again if we are in China.

    We had an excellent tour. First of all our guide, Alice Song, was terrific. She was knowledgeable, friendly and genuinely concerned that we were enjoying ourselves all day long. She was also flexible. We wanted to ride the Maglev back to the airport. She helped us get there and purchase tickets. She ordered our lunch based upon our specific tastes and even ran to a bakery to buy us extra foods to try! Time was well spent and Alice managed the holiday crowds really well. (Your was on January 1) We were provided warm jackets to wear. The vehicle was clean and comfortable. We are 100% satisfied and if we ever come back to China we would use your services again for sure.

    Visite très agréable, qui nous a permis d’avoir un vue d’ensemble de la ville. Comme nous avions l’option visite privée avec chauffeur, cela nous a permis de voir un maximum de choses.
