    We had a fabulous tour with Sunny who provided us with detailed information about the history of the water village and the surrounding areas. We would highly recommend this activity. It would be a real shame not to experience such a unique part of Shanghai. The water ways and the beautiful old buildings provide a stark contrast to the modern Shanghai. This was our favourite tour during our stay.

    Great trip, very well planned and laid out, wonderful hosting and guides. Definitely worth it. They are very flexible and accommodating, and this is the only tour that hits all the great highlights in a single day.

    I highly recommend this tour. Went with a friend who is a history teacher and he also was very impressed. We are from Germany and it was really moving to learn more about the live of the jews who found a shelter in Shanghai during WW II. Aron was a great guide and we also discussed some questions that came in our mind. That was so special. Thank you so much.

    Annie took me to some amazing photo stops despite my disability issues. Her English and cultural insights were invaluable.

    We had such a fantastic day with Jerry in the two water towns! The views were absolutely amazing - as was the boat ride in both locations - one by day under the beautiful willow trees and the other by night with views of the lit water and red lanterns - what an experience!

    Jerry took us to all the best spots, including a wonderful local restaurant for lunch and a great lit waterside restaurant at night. We sampled local culinary treats along the way - also some rice wine (very strong! Haha) - and of course shopping! Jerry even carried my shopping bags so I could be free to go in and out of the shops. He was so knowledgeable about the area and the history - wonderful guide!

    When we first booked the trip we were worried it was going to be too long of a day, but it wasn’t - it was absolutely perfect! Jerry also let us go at our own pace, which was great!

    Thank you Jerry and thank you Amazing City Tours for making our day trip out of Shanghai the BEST!!!

    Very nice and knowledgeable guide. Was interesting to walk with her through old town, she explained its history. Pleasure to chat with her, she also gave hints what else to do during my stay. Tea Zeremonie have an impression what it is and background about the different tea varieties and how they taste.

    We attended a tour to Water Village with our guide Clair. We have had a wonderful time and visited one of the most famous village near Shanghai. Clair was very informative and told us a lot about the history of Shanghai.

    Highly recommended. The service from Sunny was personal and prompt. We had trouble using our MasterCard online (our problem) and Sunny was patient and understanding while we arranged alternative payment. The bookings we made were both on short notice and Sunny was responsive and helpful. The transport was luxurious and very comfortable and clean (water provided, massage, heated seats, recliner seats). The driver was a safe driver and arrived promptly. Wonderful and could not recommend more highly
