Flawless communication from the start, Alana kept me informed of times etc via email and informed me who would be meeting me for the tour. Our tour guide named Snow met us on time at our hotel, she was very welcoming and promptly showed us to our tour car and introduced us to the driver. The car was very comfortable Mercedes, my husband particularly liked the massaging chairs as we drove around Shanghai. Snow was very knowledgeable of the local area and pointed out sights to us as we headed to a more traditional part of Shanghai so we could view the lanterns and Chinese new year decorations (we happened to be visiting Shanghai the week before CNY) therefore the city had beautiful decorations to enjoy. Snow did not rush us at all on the tour, it felt like being with a friend as she showed an interest in what we liked to do. Snow made sure we got lots of photos and gave us time to shop. The cruise on the River Bund was very enjoyable, Snow arranged for us to sit in the VIP area which was a nice touch. The sights were definitely worth seeing along the cruise. I would highly recommend Snow as a Tour Guide and if we were to visit again, I would want Snow to show me around. She was kind, very helpful and allowed us to go at our pace.

My guide Jane provided an excellent tour for me in Shanghai, visiting the Yu Gardens, French Concession and the Old Town. We did a lot in the three hours, and I really enjoyed myself on a lovely sunny day. I can highly recommend Amazing Shanghai Trip for adventures!

Jane was a fantastic and knowledgeable tourguide w very good English. I only had a short 6 hr layover and this tour was a perfect way to see the city!

I had an amazing experience. You absolutely cannot experience the view at night of Shanghai as well as if you take a ferry ride. Doing it through the tour company versus on your own is the best way so there is no stress and you get to learn about what all is the buildings are and about their history. My guide Snow was amazing. She spoke English perfectly and knew so much. She was very accommodating and asked what I wanted to see after the ferry since there was still one hour left in tour. I have used La Vacanza Travel numerous times as I’ve traveled to other countries. They are always reliable; the guide shows up on time and is very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
