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.

Private Yu Garden, The Bund, French Concession, Pudong Half-Day Tour
Tom was an excellent private tour guide. He arrived on time and provided us with a wealth of information about Shanghai and how the Shanghai Village started out as a small fishing village into what it is today. He gave us a clear understanding about how the French, British & American Concessions were established there also. Tom also answered the numerous questions my husband, son & I each had for him. He answered our questions about Hong Kong, the economics of Shanghai, the real estate, etc. about Shanghai, and so much more. We would highly recommend this half day tour to anyone interested in learning about this city of Shanghai. I have been on tours of Shanghai in the past but Tom's tour is fabulous and the best I had taken.

Shanghai Yu Garden and Pudong Tour

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

Private Yu Garden, The Bund, French Concession, Pudong Half-Day Tour
An excellent tour with a very experienced and knowledgeable tour guide. Tom met us in our hotel lobby and we started the tour in the old Chinese section of the city. Tom took us to the Chinese section before it became too crowded and explained the history of Shanghai as we walked around. We experienced a Chinese Tea Ceremony which was a highlight, and then learned about the Tao religion in the Tao Temple. Our second stop was the beautiful French Concession followed by the Bund. Tom was able to answer all of our questions and recommended places to eat. I thoroughly recommend this tour.
