Penny was remarkably knowledgeable about the history if the French Concessiion and made the history come to life as we strolled through. We saw where Nicon signed the Shanghai Communique, the view from 33rd floor of Hotel Okura, other historical landmarks, and the Shikumen residential buildings. Highly recommend this tour!

I had an excellent tour and history lesson of the French Concession today. Penny was such a knowledgeable and enjoyable guide and presented a vast amount of information clearly and in a highly digestible story. My understanding of China and Shanghai is exponential. I highly recommend spending a few hours with Penny!

Penny picked me up from the hotel and took me on a phenomenal tour! She spoke perfect English and taught me so much about the history and culture of the area. We saw a varied cityscape including the fancy hotels, the shopping district, and the housing complexes. We ended at a trendy tea shop with craft tea concoctions. An absolutely amazing day!

The tour with Penny, our guide, was amazing! She showed up a few minutes' early at our designated meeting spot near our hotel and took us on a 4-hour+ walking & taxi tour of the Yu Gardens and the Bund area. We spent a lot more time at the Yu Gardens, exploring everything that it had to offer including sampling the delirious Xiao Long Bao (soup dumplings). Penny was a walking encyclopedia, giving us facts about China, the Gardens and Chinese culture in general. She was super patient, allowing us to meander at our own pace, and explaining everything around wherever we were. This tour a a definite "must" if you have a limited time in Shanghai and want to see specific things. It is a custom-designed tour, so read up a bit about Shanghai so that you can decide where you want Penny to take you. If we had more time, we would have hired her again to see the other parts of Shanghai we missed. 5 stars for thsi one!

We had an excellent tour with Penny from Shanghai Melody. Penny was very knowledgeable about the history of Shanghai and was able to provide a good overview within the few hours of our tour. We were able to get a better perspective of Shanghai and indirectly the Chinese culture through snippets shared by Penny. We will definitely recommend this tour as an excellent introduction to Shanghai.

Excellent tour made special by the historical information supplied by our tour guide Penny. We enjoyed a boat trip seeing the spectacular light display illuminate the old and new sights of Shanghai and walked around Yu Gardens trying some of the local cuisine while learning of the history of the city.
We chose to have our tour start at 18.30 but would recommend an earlier start to enjoy some of the sights in daylight.
Overall a very good experience.

I booked this as an activity for my team to spend time together and have fun. We were not disappointed and it exceeded my expectations. We started with a market visit including buying vegetables for our meal, followed learning how to prepare and drink green tea. Seeing our meal being prepared was followed by dumpling making from scratch. There was much laughter, cooking tips shared, good food and great company. Thankyou Kelly, feifei, Shanghai mama and everyone who made it such a memorable experience

We had a terrific day. Kelly drew our attention to all sorts of details at YuYuan Gardens that we would have completely missed had we been on our own. She then found us some gorgeous local dumplings to sample, and later a brilliant restaurant with very local specialties we hadn't seen before, for lunch. Kelly also took us down back streets and lanes where we could engage with everything Shangai: from upmarket shops to neighbourhoods that gave us a feel for the city's workings. Along the way, we learned lots about local history and culture, and we finished at the Marriage Market, which was fascinating and buzzing. We had a great time and learned a lot about Shanghai and its people.
