    Very nice tour. Tour guide gave a very informative tour, was very accommodating and can speak good English. Convenient way to go around the popular place in Shanghai. Worth it!

    Lilly our guide did a wonderful job in this tour, she is very knowledgeable, patient and spoke good English. She took her time showing and explaining everything. The history of the buildings was very interesting. This might not be the best tour for very young kids > 7
  • Jenmy 3 Mar 2019
    We loved the tourguide Lily. She knows a lot about history and background information of shanghainese culture. We went to the yuyu garden and tried the famous crabsoup dumpling. Also the contrast between west and east was very nice to experience in the chique french concession and the Bund. Hope to see you again Lily!

    They picked us up at the hotel on time. Lily, our tour guide was very nice and pleasant. We had a great experience especially because it was my daughter’s birthday that day. Our favorite part was when we saw the Bund :)

    if your in a rush as you only have a few days in the city this is the best way to get around hassle free.

    Lily is fluent in English and has a good understanding of the history, details, traditions and status of Shanghai buildings. But the weather was too cold.
