    Jade guided us, my son and I, for our first day in Shanghai in an amazing discovery tour. Great food in authentic places, tea tasting, local market, a perfect blend. We were just the 2 of us with Jade and she really made it lively, bringing lot of information on the city and the way of life. Definitely recommend to start your stay with this tour !

    I had a wonderful day with a private tour guide in Shanghai!
    We went through the places on my lists, get to spent time to explore the local restaurants and shopping alleys. Will do it again next time when I’m in Shanghai.

    First of all, I would like to mentioned that I booked the tour at 9:3pm and at 10pm my tour was confirmed.
    At 9am, my tour guide Charlie was at my hotel. The tour was really well structured are I managed to see 5 of the most important attachments from Shanghai + additional info about Shanghai history and culture.
    I definitely recommend it if you have only 1 day in Shanghai and you would like to remain with a memorable experience.

    Jim and Jade were absolutely fantastic.
    They were both extremely knowledgeably and we had a great time on the tour. We ate and drank at places we would never have found as a tourist. The food and drink was delicious. Jim and Jade spoke good English and the tour was better than we could have imagined. For someone who has never visited China this was the perfect tour to introduce us to the culture and food of Shanghai.

    It was extremely interesting to see the two different towns, enjoy the scenery and savour the local cuisine. The Watertown was nice and quaint, it supposedly looks like how China was in the past. The shops were cute, artsy and reasonably priced. The whole tour felt rushed though. Even though the advertisement indicates 10 hours, we were back at the hotel in 8. The advertised tour does not mention a minimum participant number, but as they only had our 2 person party, they informed us the night before the tour that we could cancel or pay an extra $100. As we had nothing planned and it was too late to get something else, we chose for the extra ‘cash’ payment. Our guide, Tom, spoke English exceptionally well, was very interesting and had tons of things to explain. We learned a lot! He made us feel rushed though. The lunch was very good (and way too much…) in a very authentic restaurant. We would maybe have preferred to eat in the water town, but no complaints at all.
    So, beside from the feeling rushed, and the last minute $100 charge, we really enjoyed the tour and are very pleased we choose it!

    Last minute we ended up with a free day in Shanghai. A late night call to Jenny who was very accommodating in arranging us a guide late at night. Apple arrived on time in morning and gave us 5 kiwi guys an amazing day. Lots of laughs, food, stories, culture. It was a true highlight of an amazing week in China. Thanks Apple, happy life xx

    Decent tour with stops at important landmarks. Our guide Michael was awesome, adding stories where appropriate. Good way to get some introduction behind the history of the city. Stop At Silk factory was purely marketing!

    Amazing private tour with Linda. She is the best guide. We were able to curate tour to our preferences. Linda has great knowledge of Shanghai and it's history. She was excellent at helping us get used to Chinese ways on our first day. We learned so much more seeing sites with Linda. Great comminication, excellent value.

    Charly is great guide, her English is fluent, we loved all the background information about the city, the buildings and the people she shared with us along the way.

    The bikes were new and very comfortable, even after 4 hours biking!

    We will most definitely go back for another tour to discover a different part of the city!
