    We had a fantastic trip to Shanghai thanks to Frankie, our friendly and extremely knowledgeable guide who narrated historical events and tales from the past. He made sure our day went smoothly and toom us to this traditional Chinese place for a very tasty lunch. As China has language challenges for tourists, we had booked a private tour with pickup and dropoff to the hotel. The entire experience was coordinated end to end by Amy from the tour company who made sure that there was always someone waiting at the station when we arrived. Her support was so fabulous that I ended up leaning on her help for the remainder of my stay in Shanghai. She's a very helpful lady and I would strongly recommend going with this tour company. They are very good!
