    A fantastic Shanghai day trip! Every scenic spot was worthy to pay a visit. It was so incredible to stand in the World Financial Center and have a bird view of the whole city. I liked to walk in the Bund and appreciate the buildings mixed with western and modern styles. The guide was outstanding and knowledgeable. She was capable to answer any question about the scenic spot. I learned a lot about local knowledge from her. I wished I could have her next time when I return to Shanghai.

    This was my first trip to Shanghai. And I left an unforgettable memory during the Shanghai day tour. The Bund and Nanjing Road deserve a look where you can fully experience the prosperity of Shanghai.

    I was very satisfied with the Shanghai day tour. I took my grandparents with me. Sometimes they walked slowly and others needed to wait for us. The guide would patiently explain. Every time after arranging the itinerary of other tourists, he would help me to take care of my grandparents and take them to the priority passage in some scenic spots. Although one day was very short, my grandparents still had a lot of fun!
