Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We enjoyed this trip very much. The car was air-conditioned and comfortable to ride in, with a pleasant driver, who took us between the attractions. Our guide - Ms. Berlin - was wonderful!

    She tailored the experience to our needs (we are an older couple), took good care of us (she provided us with hand disinfection, face masks and refreshments along the way) and talked about Shangai most engagingly and with deep knowledge. Very professional behaviour and great English!

    The food we had at a modern Chinese restaurant was delicious. Everything was well planned and ran smoothly. We heartily recommend this tour and Ms. Berlin as guide!

    Had a wonderful experience with our guide, Snow. Thoroughly enjoyed the river cruise and the stunning lights around the Bund. The dinner was delicious- Snow was very knowledgeable and helped in recommending food- her knowledge of Shanghai and the history was also exceptional and we enjoyed learning about Shanghai and the different architecture! Highly recommend Snow and the Night Cruise experience!

    This Shanghai day tour is amazing. The guide and company exceeded my expectation. Despite the disruption of plans due to typhoon in-fa the company was flexible to reschedule my tour to a brighter excellent for the tour. From the start to finish I was impressed. I can say from their quick response to questions and help with every detail their service was impeccable. My guide Snow arrived on time to pick me from my hotel. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Shanghai and made sure that I visitited all the important cultural spots that I was keen to visit. We started with the Yuyung garden and visited many other sites with historical significance. She did a phenomenal job and the day went better than I had expected. I would recommend the tour to travellers coming to Shanghai whether in groups or as individuals because of the great service they offer the that exceeds expectations.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time in Shanghai. Lisa was a brilliant tour guide and took me all around the city. She was very friendly, very helpful and very knowledgeable. I am a wheelchair user and Lisa made sure that everything was accessible for me. The Bund, the Old Town and People's Park were my favourite. Highly recommend this tour and would love to return to the city some day.

    Had the fabulous Berlin as my tour guide who was brilliant and her enthusiasm for her job shows. If you just have a few hours available and want the key highs and a spectacular view of the City from top of the Shanghai tower then this is perfect.

    We were well taken care of the entire evening, from the pick-up at our apartment until we were brought back home several hours later. The cruise was spectacular and our guide Snow seemed to know all the buildings and told us stories as we looked out over the brightly lit buildings. We will visit the restaurant again and also do the tour on the river when guests are allowed to travel again.

    We are very pleased with the complimentary upgrade of cruise tickets which allowed us to avoid the crowd on another level. We get to enjoy almost the whole level of the cruise ourselves. Our guide Caroline is very friendly. She is able to provide us with information accurately about the building and history of the bund. We even asked her for food suggestion for our stay in Shanghai, she even went to search for the address for it. Hotpot is delicious with variety food item to choose from and is super suitable in such a cold weather and after blowing cold air from the cruise. Overall we are very pleased this evening.

    It was a very insightful and inspiring tour. May is very knowledgeable, patient and cheerful. I enjoyed every bit of it while learning a lot. I love reading Chinese culture and it was brought to life by this tour! Thanks to your company and most specially to my able tour guide, May, and our very reliable driver.

    Tongli was beautiful and authentic. The lunch in Suzhou was delicious and the humble administrators garden was breathtaking! I very much enjoyed my guide Daisy who was very generous with her time and advice! We fit in some shopping on the side as well!!
