  • I had a wonderful tour with our guide Kim. The tour was long, but very relaxed and Kim took us to all the highlights of Shanghai. He really catered the tour to allow us to spend as much or as little time at spots as we desired. Kim spoke good English and was very engaging and helpful. He showed us how to pay with WePay, how to navigate the metro and was wonderful at taking photos along the way! In addition to the tour, he took us to a wonderful traditional lunch and helped me navigate the metro to get back home. Highly recommend touring with Kim.

  • We two norwegian ladies in their 50's had a great sightseeing day, just the two of us with our guide,Vero. We only had one day for sightseeing, and got to see a lot of interesting places in Shanghai in a few hours. It was extremely hot this day and we were offered free taxi rides insted of public transport between the sights : . On attractions where there were a lot of people in queue, like the Japaneese tower, we were able to skip the line - great!. Vero arranged lunch in a place with mainly local people, nothing fancy, but very good food and cheap.
    All in all - great tour that we also influence the content of and good value for money! But be prepared that in some of the places visited you don't have to, but we felt a bit obliged to buy something...
