    The reasonable itinerary didn’t make us very tired during the one day Shanghai tour.

    The guides were very friendly and spoke good English. My children liked the Western buffet breakfast in the hotel. We spent a good time. The TravelChinaGuide is reliable and worthy to recommend to everyone who is going to travel to China!

    The itinerary was rich and tight but the time was well allocated. We got to the scenic spots on time and had enough time to visit them carefully. The guides explained everything in detail. If you prefer leisure travel, the Shanghai day tour can be taken into consideration.

    The Shanghai day tour gave me a chance to explorer Shanghai from different aspects. I saw exquisite ancient Chinese arts in the Shanghai Museum and had a good view of the Bund and Pudong when I cruised on the Huangpu River. It was a nice experience!

    It was a very happy Shanghai day tour. Although it was only a short day, the itinerary was very tight which showed me that Shanghai had more than just a bustling and busy side. I preferred quiet Yu Garden compared with the busy Bund.

    This was my first group tour in China, very satisfied! The schedule of this short Shanghai day tour was tight but reasonable. Shanghai’s famous attractions were visited such as Yu Garden, the Bund and Huangpu River Cruise. The local delicacy recommended by the tour guide was also very tasty and affordable.

    We would like to thank our travel consultant Angela for informing us of the precautions in advance the day before departure. Angela was also very patient to answer our questions before ordering this trip, very efficient & professional! ... More

    It was my first day tour to Shanghai with my parents. We had a lot of fun and the trip was not particularly tiring. After all, my parents had limited energy. The guide was very careful and took special care of the elderly. My parents liked her very much!
