    This was a personalised tour for a family of 4 with our own guide and vehicle. The guide spoke excellent English, was very informative about the cultural aspects of our destination and took excellent care of my family (that included 2 young kids). Would highly recommend this tour operator.

    My guide was Chris, she is funny, smart very friendly and helpful all the time when we was in the tour. If you like to see something very unique historical small city, strongly recommended to see Zhujiajiao Water Town. The best time to visit Fall or Spring, the weather on September was amazing. Also, I love China town in Shanghai City, you will be surprise how beautiful this part of the city and night crus is unforgettable.

    Tour was great Ryan picked us up @ hotel and we were off for the day both days I should say even though it was the busy time of year with the New Year coming up lots of travelers in train stations, very informative. I like the private tours as they go at your pace instead of 10-15 people. Ryan was very good.

    Great trip. great guide, shame about the weather but it only slightly detracted from a great experience.

    Sunny was a excellent guide! Very sweet and helpful in bargaining with the shop owners to get us a great deal. She even gave us a gift at the end of the tour. We customized our trip by eliminating the Shanghai highlights, so we only did as a half day tour as we had requested. A little disappointed that the price was not adjusted, however. We added this booking the evening before the tour by calling by phone to book. I think had we had more time, I would have picked a different water town to visit, but this is closest to the city and allowed us to have the extra half day free in Shanghai, which we much wanted. Again, Sunny made the trip worth it!

    Have thoroughly enjoyed our tour around Shanghai and especially the ancient water town Zhujiajiao. Our tour guide, Lily, was exceptional - very helpful, knowledgeable, friendly and managed to keep my 8-year-old son engaged all day long. Simply wonderful and highly recommend!!

    My family so enjoyed taking a tour of Shanghai with Sunny that we just have to tell everyone! Sunny took us to the main attractions and explained them and the history. She also explained the current China lifestyle. She made China come alive for us and we would not have enjoyed China as much as we did without her. Thanks Sunny!!!!
