What people are saying about Shanghai

I had one of the best sightseeing tours. I left all the planning to Tom and he came up trumps. During these Covid times he had planned ahead to ensure we could enter all the attractions I wanted to see. He was knowledgeable, relaxed and easy to talk to. I look forward to my next trip to Shanghai when I will book Tom again. I will also recommend him to friends and colleagues who visit Shanghai too.

Tom was an amazing tour guide who was flexible and wonderfully knowledgeable. He communicates so well both before and during the tour I learned so much from him about the local history and even the plans for the city in the future. Would definitely recommend you book his tour! (I travel extensively and he is one of the best most knowledgeable guides I’ve ever had!)

Lu was an amazing guide! He was very friendly, knowledgeable and funny. The wide variety of food and teas were delicious and excellent! The locations were certainly carefully selected. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Shanghai!

I had a fantastic experience. The tour guide, Lu, was excellent and I was able to taste and experience many new things that I would not have been able to otherwise. The tea ceremony was lovely!

Tom is a great guide. Vast knowledge about history, but also gives interesting facts about Chinese lifestyle. I enjoyed every moment. Definitely will recommend.
