  • If your thinking of doing shopping in Shanghai you need to book this tour. It was unbelievable value. We started the day at 9:00 and did not finish until 5:30 my personal apologies to Mary-Jayne. We started at the fabric market which had a large variety of tailors and other shops that did scarfs, wallets, table runners, some hand bags and anything else related with fabric. My friend and I both had amazing coats made it has a hard pick there were at least 6 styles I liked and a dress each. The quality of the items received has been to a high standard. We went to a more modern porcelain/ homewares shop where my friend bought a tea set - which she loves. We then had an amazing lunch in a little tucked away place which was one of the nicest I had during my time in China. We spent a while in the flower markets as I was taking my time picking out a Chinese vase. Before ending in a large shopping mall/ centre that had just about everything you could imagine. To some up my experience I would go back to Shanghai just to do this shopping tour, as without Mary-Jayne as our guide and assistant we would have been highly over charged with our purchases, and the half day tours that are available would not allow you to see and experience as much as what this shopping trip allows. Thanks again for a great day out.

  • For anybody visiting Shanghai this tour is an absolute must. It might seem pricey but you end up saving way more in the pre-negotiated prices for clothing/accesories that you buy tailor-made. Our Belgian guide Caroline was fantastic, very knowledgeable about the city and culture and took us to some fabulous places to shop. It ended up being just my husband and I on this tour although we didn't pay for the private tour, just happened this way and we were able to include/exclude shopping destinations that suited our needs. The vendors at the Fabric Market are all preselected by MJ Tour owner for their excellent quality clothing and prices are pre-negotiated, so there's no need to haggle further. It became clear as we went along that we were getting extremely reasonable prices for such well-made clothing. It was a long day on our feet, but we loved having the air-conditioned car collect us every stop, and the yummy pork dumpling snack late morning and delicious Chinese banquet lunch sustained us for the long day. We were really happy with all our purchases clothing, prescription glasses/sunglasses, pearl necklace, handbags, beautiful ceramics at unbelievable prices. Now back home, we can't wait for our lovely ceramic pieces to arrive by sea.We have recommended this Tour to many friends already and would happily continue to do so.

  • great day- shira and mj were really helpful and crammed a lot of shopping into one day. we would definitely have paid over the odds had we not have done the tour and missed out on great buys.

  • What a wonderful shopping day! Being able to get around Shanghai in an air-conditioned van with seat belts, with storage for your purchases, was excellent. We went to several different shops, and I ordered custom clothing affordable! for the first time in my life and everything arrived the next evening at my hotel with a perfect fit! Lunch was delicious, and I also enjoyed the tour of the silk factory. I have been to Shanghai many times but I had never been to any of these shopping locations, and I highly recommend this trip!

  • MJ was a great guide and made the day a pleasure for us. Took us to a great restaurant for lunch - a restaurant we would not have found otherwise.

  • I absolutely just can't say enough about our shopping experience. My husband and I made out like bandits on this tour. Without Suzy and Miricaplease forgive me for my misspelling our purchases of custom coats, shirts, dresses, eyeglasses, suits, bedding, ect. would not have been possible. In between shopping we had mini history lessons, tours of a silk factoryNOT the one where they badger you to death, a beautiful ceramic store, the flower market, a quick snackamazing, and a Chinese lunch. All stops were tailored to our specifications. Shipping? Suzy takes care of that, too. Can't wait to return!

  • It's not that type of 'shopping tour' tourist trap in China. MJ gave us such an authentic experience shopping in shanghai, from tailor made a dress to bargain with confidence! I'd highly recommend it to everyone who is interested or loves shopping!

  • Great day out shopping and learning about China's history and culture. MJ was a great host and she knew the best places to take us for men's suits and shirts. She also know the best merchants for silk scarves, accessories, pearls and watches. A great tour and a must if you are in the market for tailoring. MJ also took us to a fabulous local restaurant for a great lunch experience. Thanks MJ - will tell my friends. Betty!
