I had arranged a half day tour in Shanghai, China. The driver was to pick us up from the hotel lobby on Thursday, August 16th at 12:30 PM. We were waiting for him in the lobby of the hotel beginning at 12:20 PM. At 1:00 PM he called and asked where we were. I told him we were waiting in the lobby. He then told me that he did not service that hotel. He wanted me to take a taxi to airport. I said no. We were never told that our hotel was not on their list. J.D. McLeod

We would have liked to see more of Shanghai, rather than Jade/Pearl and Silk museum. We booked the trip to see the country not local trades and would have liked to spend more time at these attractions rather than rushing
