Tom's English is impeccable. He picked us up at the new cruise terminal in a brand new car. We felt welcome to share his knowledge of Shanghai. We are fascinated by the beauty of China's Water Towns. He recommended to visit an open air museum that is actually a salvaged residence with opulent antiques and dreamy gardens. We saw the cruise ship tour group skipping this treasure. Because we had visited Shanghai before, he was agreeable to modify the itinerary and took us to the Jade Buddha Temple. Tom's tour far surpassed what was offered by the ship and a far better value.

We had a layover in Shanghai für about aday, arriving early morning and leaving in the evning. Tom picked us (family of 5) up in a car that fit us all, including luggage. We were super excited and so was Tom - he was waiting for us at the Pudong airport, and as kids were hungry after the flight, swiftly adjusted itinerary to first get some real Shanghai dumplings. We managed to see all the important sights and Tom was always looking out for us - he was super nice and when we realized, we had to cut the trip a bit shorter due to kids (especially the 8yo) getting tired, he had absolutely no problem with changing plans. This was an amazing experience and a true private tour where Tom came up with great suggestions but we were still able to give preferences (i.e. he did quickly fit in a tea tasting, as we gelt like it). I would absolutely recomend such layover tour with Tom, as you get so much out of it, even if its only a short Shanghai experience. Obviously i‘m sure he‘d have had 100s more things to show and share. Thanks Tom - was a great pleasure meeting you.

Our guide was great and knew all the back roads and alleys to get us around downtown Shanghai and the old town. We enjoyed the old architecture and decorations for the Chinese New Year I recommend the tour highly

Tom our tour guide made the. most of our limited time in Shanghai. Watertown was very unique and a great place to walk amongst the river and shops. In old Shanghai, Tom knew all the short cuts to get around the crowds and see some great areas of town. I highly recommend this tour for a quick 6 hr tour of Shanghai.

I spent three days in a full-immersion adventure in these unique places, for the first time in my life and will always remember it. In a rather short perod and despite the rainy and foggy wheather, I could do plenty of things, such as a night cruise on the Huang Tu river, a visit at Yu garden, walking in the Bund streets, the French Confession,etc In the end we went and visit the Zhujiajiao water city, and we had a phantastic lunch at a small family owned restaurant just besides the Fangsheng bridge. Our guide Linda always provided interesting information as well as explanations when required. The driver was also very cooperative and his drive styling very relaxing
