    Had the tour with Mark just some hours landing in Shanghai from Europe. Despite a rather raining night it was still very enjoyable both the cruise as well as visiting the Old Town and the French Concession. My wife and I visitied all places again the next couple of days, and with the insight from our guide Mark this was for us a smart way of exploring Shangahi.

    This was a great tour done by Mark, he will go the extra mile to make sure you have a memorable experience. Alot of these tour guides depend on tips as a bulk of the costs goes to their boss, so make sure to tip them if you enjoyed the tour. Even a small tip means a great deal to these hard workers

    Tom picked us up at the hotel on time and we were off to see the sights. I was amazed how he got us to places at the right time to see some extra things that most people would miss. He had us at the right spot at the right time in Old Town to see the nightly ceremonial event. He had us on the boat for the tour just in time and we did not have to wait in line at all because he had made all the arrangements ahead of time. It was a action packed night and walked away with a great appreciation of the city and knew what I wanted to do in the following days. Tom is a great guide.

    Great tour. Tom was excellent! Informative, knowledgable and friendly. Site would not have been the same without his guidance. Must do!

    We completed our two week long China visit with this tour. We had several guides along the way and Tom, hands down, was the most knowledgeable and best spoken (in English) of them all. Though it was raining, we all still had a wonderful time. Tom was patient, kind, and he went beyond his duties. The tour itself is worth the time and money but Tom enhanced it tenfold.

    This tour was so well organized and it was such a smooth and enjoyable experience for me. Roy my private guide has given me a very good tour of Shanghai city with good stories on history, culture, people and many more. It was a pleasure chatting with with Roy while enjoying this tour.

    We were only in Shanghai for one day, for a long layover and our tour guide Tom went above any beyond to make our day count! He was so patient and kind, we had a delay in our flight and he patiently waited at the hotel for us. He knew everything about China and answered all our questions. Highly recommend him and this tour especially if you are short on time.

    I had a few hours to spare in Shanghai during a work trip and wanted to see the city. Tom was a fantastic guide and was able to show me so much of the city in a packed 4 hours. He was really knowledgable and had some hidden gems up his sleeve, locations I'd never find myself. I highly recommend a tour with Tom!
