    This was the highlight of our trip. We enjoyed it so much. If you come to Shanghai you must see The Bund at night and reserve it on a boat like this tour you can see more without the crowd.

    This tour was a definite highlight from our overall trip. We had a wonderful time with our guide, May, who was funny, informative, and very helpful. In addition to being a great guide, she even helped us prepare to navigate the metro system for our next day's adventure.

    The dinner experience was great, and the tour even accommodated the fact that we had already tried Xinjiang-style food on a tour the previous night (they selected a new restaurant for us). The Xinjiang food, which we had the night before, is excellent, and I would highly recommend it. The replacement was also excellent, and featured Shanghai-style dumplings (among other dishes) which were delicious.

    The river cruise was a beautiful experience, definitely the best way to see the lights on the river at night (the Bund walkway gets very crowded and can make it difficult to get good photos). In addition to having private seating on the cruise, we had drinks and snacks while we enjoyed our romantic trip around the river.

    This is our first visit to Shanghai and we prebooked before we left. Everything went according to plan and worked like clockwork. Our guide Berlin met us in the lobby and arranged an excellent car and driver to take us out for a Shanghai dining experience in a very nice restaurant under the Shanghai Tower. Berlin helped us with our meal choices and the meal was of a very high standard. After this Berlin had our car and driver ready to take us to the river cruise. Although the traffic and crowds were very heavy Berlin seemed to navigate our way to a very good observation spot on board the boat. The light seeing cruise was a wonderful experience. We have seen city lights around the world but felt these were the most spectacular. Berlin arranged our car and driver to return us to our hotel after the cruise and Berlin accompanied us back. We were so impressed with Berlin a lovely person with an excellent command of English her knowledge of Shanghai and China was wonderful and we learnt so much about China and the people. We must have impressed others about our experience as we have another to our booked with Berlin as our guide they have asked to come on it with us which has been arranged. Thank you Berlin for a great tour we feel we have a new friend in you in Shanghai.

    Our tour guide Berlin was absolutely great, young but yet full of knowledge about the Shanghai area and Chinas history. Berlin communicated very well and picked us up on time and walked us through everything. Thanks again Berlin your American Friends !!

    M family and I really enjoyed this experience. Xin, our guide for the evening, was on time and very knowledgeable about the history of Shanghai. We could not ask for a better one. It was great having her with us to avoid crowds and lines at the pier and also picked out some very good dishes for us a dinner. The view on the cruise was spectacular. Xin, the ride, and the views exceeded out expectations.

    We loved the evening river cruise. We did both day and night and the night was superior. The river is lit up nicely at night and the dinner was great. Shanghai is famous for soup dumplings (Xiaolong Bao) and our tour guide Queena, took us to the best place for them. We loved this tour!

    We had the Shanghai river cruise with dinner & lights with Berlin and we had an excellent evening. It was very good fun. We went to the xinjiang style Restaurant first and had a taste of xinjiang food which we found very tasty. Lots of spice and interesting dishes and the dessert Yum 😀 Then the lights cruise where it was wonderful to be in the VIP area so there was no problem with getting a seat with a fabulous view. What a fantastic show. Berlin is a wonderful guide and we would certainly recommend her to everyone.

    I had such a wonderful time during my tour with Berlin. She gave great info on the history of the city, treated us with respect, and was just all-around an awesome guide. I am looking forward to booking another tour during my trip and I will request Berlin! She is GREAT! Thank you Berlin!

    My elderly father and I had the great pleasure of taking this tour which included both a delicious dumpling dinner at a local restaurant and the most incredible views of the Shanghai Bund by night. After multiple contacts by our tour operator Alana in advance of the tour, we were promptly picked up at our hotel by Daisy, our truly wonderful tour guide. She was not only knowledgeable of the area and about the history of Shanghai, she went as far as providing the names and addresses of all the places we planned to visit on our own (in both Chinese and English) so that we would be sure to find them in the coming days. She treated us just like old friends into town, sharing with genuine enthusiasm all that was special and unique to the city.

    During the course of the tour, I had even inadvertently left my purse containing both our passports at the security check just before boarding the boat! Just as I had realized what had happened, she had already communicated back with the dock personnel, setting my mind immediately to rest and resetting the whole start of our vacation.

    Under Daisy's quick action and calm over crazy handling of the situation, we were able to take in the night views of the city's waterfront without missing a beat. The boat tour enabled the most wondrous light show with all the buildings alight in all colors of the rainbow. Even a steady stream of meandering cell phone lights were visible from the promenade like fireflies entertaining on early summer night. Thank you for the memories Shanghai Viator!

    The local team truly delivered in all the important ways. Not only did they meet our overall tour expectations, but Daisy really took the time to tailor the tour and ensure a safe passage. My father had a portable walker AND we were traveling during their national Labor Day week festivities on top of everything. So we had to make a few adjustments for the purpose of navigating, but we always felt we were in good hands and knew what was happening. This tour more than met our expectations!
