We had a wonderful time with Kenny in Shanghai. She did an incredible job maximizing our one day tour of the city. We were able to see the important sites while still enjoying a lovely lunch on the Bund. Kenny was flexible, adjusting our schedule to allow us to do some things that were not originally planned. We really enjoyed her company and learning a little about life in Shanghai. We strongly recommend Kenny for a wonderful tour of the city.
