    In May my bosses traveled to Shanghai for business, for me the service and communication was exceptional! Probably on the next trip we will look to do an activity, unfortunately the schedule did not allow the tour to take place, but we were extremely pleased with all the help That sunny offered us many things that had nothing to do with the tour. Thank you very much, I highly recommend them.

    Our visit to Shanghai was all the more enjoyable as we were expertly informed about the rich history and culture of this fascinating city. The highlights were the Bund, French Concession, Jade Buddha and our favorite was the Old City. Sunny ordered a wonderful meal for us in a local restaurant. I would highly recommend this tour.

    Chris was lovely guide, showing all the highlights of Shanghai. Like the details Chris was able to tell. Really good to have guide first time in China, otherwise it would be a big challenge.

    Ruby was the perfect guide. She knew lots of history and fun facts. Walked around the city and saw some local places. Had a delicious lunch and the day just flew. After I did small excursions on my own she suggested and I left very comfortable doing so.

    It was a rainy day and still, we had the best experience around the city. Tour included the old and the new. Good knowledge on history and learning areas of interest.

  • 09-Jul-2023

    Perfect choice for seeing all of Shanghai's highlights on one day. Annie was extremely knowledgeable in so many areas of history and culture. Jade Buddah and Yu Garden were absolute stand outs but the entire day was perfect, not to mention the excellent meal at a perfect location. Would absolutely recommend to anyone visiting for any reason, there was so much to learn.

  • 05-Jul-2023

    A very informative one-day tour to learn something of the history of Shanghai. Annie has a broad knowledge of China's culture and Shanghai's history and took care for a very good lunch. Strongly recommended!
