導遊Charlie 十分專業,解說精彩,讓人彷彿回到了古代,從明代到清代到現代,整個上海的動盪跟發展。司機的時間掌握也十分即時,讓我們基本上無延遲地抵達每個景點。最後感謝我們的窗口Alana,她細心溫柔地協助,讓我們從活動開始前就很放心,各項溝通安排都即時有效。優質商家,希望之後還能有合作的機會。

We had visited Shanghai several times in the past but only for a few days. We had not seen some of the less visited museums and interesting neighborhoods. Our guide suggested the Urban Planning Museum and the Tianzifang and French Concession neighborhoods. These were all fascinating and having private car at our disposal made the visits very efficient. We then drove to the Zhujiajiao water town, had a fantastic lunch in a small restaurant (whole fresh tomatoes for dessert). Our guide spoke excellent English and was a source of information about modern China through the eyes of a 35 year old who grew up since the cultural revolution. Travel in Shanghai has become a bit difficult with limited internet access, Uber is now gone and we had difficulty getting the Didi ride-share app to accept any of our credit cards. Most venues do not take US credit cards and we had a problem with a coffee shop not taking cash! The merchants want people to use the Alipay app. The guide took care of all of the admission fees, lunch and a coffee break in the afternoon (paying with her Alipay). I believe we saw two days worth of Shanghai in 8 hours because of this fantastic guide. This was definitely worth the money if your time is limited and you don't have the pay and ride-share apps. Travel for foreigners has become difficult in China and this tour was a breeze.

This was a totally amazing day out touring the water village and Shanghai city. It was the best tour that we have had during our holiday to China and it is a must for anyone travelling to Shanghai. Our guide Xin was so lovely - she was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful not only for items on the day but also for recommendations of what to do and see for the rest of our stay in Shanghai. For anyone visiting this area I highly recommend this tour.

Had a great day out and about Zhujiajiao/Shanghai city with Berlin and our designated driver (didnt catch his name but he got us to/from our various stops safely.... )day started smoothly with pickup from international cruise port. Quick orientation from Berlin who spoke perfect English, was very easy to understand. She had a great sense of humor, passionate about her history/culture/heritage. She knows where to score the best coffee n noodles in town (high five) ...overall loved the quaint little water town and all its nooks & crannies and the city had so much personality too...yu garden, grand bazaar, the bund...shanghai tower...wish I had more time to really soak it all up...oh and Berlin moonlights as personal tour photographer as well..lol. 10/10 would recommend

This trip was excellent. We started the day by getting picked up by Caroline and the driver in a Tesla at the hotel. She then took us to Yuan garden and explained everything about the history. She had lots of information and was wonderful. We then went to Shanghai tower where we looked at the view and we had a lovely lunch. Even though we had dietary requirements, Caroline took us to a lovely restaurant and met our needs. After that we went to the water town where we looked at the village and took a beautiful ride on the local boats down the canals. It was truly an excellent experience and I would recommend it to everyone coming from all over the world. Thank you Caroline for the experience.
