This tour was o.k. What made it three stars is the food which was Fantastic!!! Our tour guide, Snow, took us to two different resaturants where we had a great experience of tasting typical Chinese food and this was the only tour that our guide actually shared our food. In one of the restaurants there was even a dance show which was interesting. Our guide was a girl that wanted to please. She was very friendly, her mastery of English was great, however it seemed that she was inexperienced as we started the tour with: Where do you want to go? Of course, as that was our fist time in China we had no idea, but followed her to our first stop which was a boring/simple unexciting parkfrom there on we had few stops, but unfortunatelly none breath taking and certainly NOT AMAZING. Sorry Snow.
The Company were very proactive and contacted me prior to the tour, to ensure I knew the pick up times and who would meet me. My guide was a very nice woman named Lang. She met me at the Hotel and we got into the transport to start the tour. We started at the Yu Gardens in the City. A beautiful place with wonderful buildings, trees, rocks and features. Lang was very knowledgeable and knew the history behind everything. She gave me plenty of opportunities for picture taking and exploring. We then went to the Jade Buddha Temple. Lang was again very knowledgeable and gave great information of History and other facts and figures. A quick stop at the French Concession area of Shanghai before going to the Sky Tower for Lunch and fantastic views of Shanghai. We then went to a Museum near the World fair site before eating dinner at a new Sichuan restaurant. The food was spicy and delicious and there was the additional bonus of entertainment, with the famous Mask changing show. It was amazing and I don't know who they do it!! Overall, it was a fantastic day and I highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Shanghai. Lang was amazing!!
Could not have been better. Mary, our amazing tour guide is terrific. she met us at the ship and took us to experience Shanghai.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch after which, we saw even more before being taken to the airport for our flight to JFK.
Mary made our day in Shanghai memorable and we can't thank her and Viator enough..
