More than the sights!
Had a wonderful experience during the half-day tour with Tom! He thoughtfully planned the route so that we experienced each attraction with minimal distraction / crowds. He was able to answer all sorts of cultural and historical questions with a great sense of pride and humor. Would certainly recommend this tour for hitting all the major sites while adding color and context you wouldn't get in seeing them alone.

Hello - would highly recommend taking the tour with Tom if you have limited time (business). He is very friendly, eloquent and explains and points out pertinent details about all the sights you are seeing. He also picks you up and drops you off for convenience. His English is excellent so expect very fluid conversation. I was very happy with the outcome.

This was the perfect half day tour. Tom did a wonderful job explaining everything and was very informational. My favorite part was Yuyuan Garden. I highly recommend this tour if you do not want to do a full day tour. This was a perfect 4-4.5 hour tour seeing the best parts of Shanghai.

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!

Private Yu Garden, The Bund, French Concession, Pudong Half-Day Tour
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.
