Tom Zhang picked us up in a very nice van at the Cruise Terminal. He was waiting for us with a sign. We loaded our luggage in the van and went to the Yu Garden in Shanghai. Tom explained the History of the Yu Garden. Next we saw the Bund. Walked around the French Concession and felt like we were in Europe with the sidewalk cafes and nice shops. Saw the new area of Pudong. The most impressive building was the Pearl TV Tower with three balls that look like pearls. Tom explained that the whole area of Pudong is new. Tom is a great driver/guide.Carol and Pat Clayton
If you only have a half day before boarding a ship, I recommend this one. We saw so much and experienced the top tourist attractions of Shanghai in four hours. We wandered the old Shanghai Pearl Village and beautiful Yu Gardens, had an informative tea-sampling lesson, walked the French Concession, the Bund and riverside. Driving the through the tunnel we also drove around the financial district with its lovely modern architecture. Tom was very well-spoken and gave us much insight into the life of Shanghai.
The vehicle was clean, Tom was an excellent driver, arrived early at the hotel and we started our day right away. For an extra 30.00 arranged ahead of time, we were taken right to the cruise terminal after our tour of Shanghai. So easy and convenient.
That was our best tour in Shanghai! Tom was so incredible, delicate, knowledgeable and very helpful. The Yu Gardens were one of a kind and impressed us very much. The French concession and the Bund became one of our favorite places in Shanghai because if the unique mixture of cultures and the tea ceremony was delicious we have never tasted that amazing tea flavors before. The tour is definitely a must and is incredibly good. Our recommendations is to pick it in the beginning of your Shanghai visit! A must with the best Shanghai guide Tom!
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and was able to answer any and every question we threw at him. He drove 3 of us around the city and took in all the big sites in a short time, this was a shorter tour for sure, however he gave us lots of advice and tips for things to do for the next 2 days in Shanghai!
This was a great tour, and my tour guide was the best! Tom's english was excellent and his knowledge about the places we visited, the city and the country were vast. My personal favorite was the Yu Gardens, they were breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour to get a flavor of such a dynamic city.
