    It was a small group in the Shanghai day tour. The guides were possible to look after everyone and help us timely if we needed.

    The accommodation and meals were of high standards. We visited many sites including some famous ones like the Bund and Yu Garden. Overall, I liked this trip!

    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.
