From start to finish, Snow was an amazing guide. She was very attentive to our needs and customize the tour to minimize walking for our parents. She arranged pickup and drop offs right at the entrance. During our tour she gave us great local insights and facts that made the night cruise all the more interesting. She also got us upgraded to the VIP section of the boat since it was crowded and we had amazing unobstructed views of Shanghai.Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a tour.
We were lucky to have Snow as our guide. She was wonderful and first asked us what restaurant we would prefer - there were two choices and 2 styles. We picked the one that had evening entertainment and that's the one you probably see on many reviews. It was a good choice for us. Snow explained all the menu choices and we ordered many different things - all good. The driver was very professional and took us right to the ticket office. Other people had very long walks because their tour bus couldn't get near.
Snow navigated her way to the office, got our tickets and then got us to the boat and some great seats in the VIP section. The view is spectacular and she explained all the buildings we were seeing and their history.
Afterwards, the driver picked us up swiftly and we went back to our hotel.
Viator is better than some other tour operators because they pick you up at the hotel and drop you off. They also have great tour guides like Snow.
This is probably one of the highlights of our stay in Shanghai.
Our night began with our tour guide Xin picking us up conveniently at our Hotel. Xin was wonderful as she told us not only of the culture and history of Shanghai, but she also shared her own personal stories. Xin took us to dinner in the beautiful Shanghai Tower where she ordered 3 authentic Chinese dishes to share that were absolutely delicious. Then we went to the boat for a cruise where we saw all of the beauty of the lit up buildings along the river. We were then driven comfortably back to our Hotel. I highly recommend this tour as part of everyone’s visit to Shanghai!
