Hi We just had a great time going through the Huangpu River Cruise. The guide Roy was fantastic, his knowledge of history of the places and historical characters was simply amazing. He is also very patient and considerate, bringing us to grab a quick bite along the way. Highly recommended to get him to guide yr tours. Hwee Boon Singapore

Mr. Tom Zhang, my guide, is an excellent person, who is very knowledgeable about the history of the city, and most he is very good at English. I had a wonderful / memorable city tour with him. He showed me both old and new city, a river cruise to Bund. Money well spent. If you have only a night to stay in Shanghai, this is the best possible tour you can have.

Everything was perfect, from scheduling to being picked up at our hotel. Not only does Tom know his stuff, he curated a perfect evening. It gave us an overview of what to check out latter with more time. It was also nice to have someone readily available to take pictures that were not selfies.
