My wife and I had a great walking food tour of Shanghai street food with Lily. Lily is very knowledgeable and a lot of fun to be around. Her communication skills are excellent. And, perhaps most importantly, Lily will feed you, very very well with many different food options along the walking tour.

Lily demonstrated her superb abilities in both planning and conducting airport transfers and guide services for our small group of three travelers in April 2019. She speaks and writes as easily in English as she does in Mandarin. Her English vocabulary is commendable. Additionally, her sparkling personality made the time that we spent with her (subsequent to our arrival in China) made every experience a complete delight. She is a tremendous ambassador of the Chinese people and culture. I recommend her!

Lily arranged for a van and driver to meet me and my traveling companions upon our arrival at Shanghai Pudong Airport on April 19, 2019. We had communicated several times prior to our trip in order to provide the details relevant to our arrival. The meeting at the airport and subsequent transfer to our hotel were flawless. I attribute this fact to the thoroughness that Lily demonstrated in planning. This was even more evident during the tours we took with Lily as our guide over the following days.

Lily took my husband and I on a food tasting, walking tour of Shanghai. We wouldn't have tried half of the delicious street food without her. Every place visited offered different flavors and was accompanied by a story explaining the food, the origin and the owner in fluent English. We really had a great time. The food was delicious and Lily is a delight to be with. It was a perfect tour. Can't wait to go back to Shanghai.

What a JOY Lily was! We spent a full day exploring Shanghai AND stopping for numerous food experiences with a devoted Foodie (her words :-) ).... Lily provided a wealth of information about her city throughout the day and always was up for another eating challenge whether it was on the schedule for the day or not! It seemed that I wished to stop at so many little street food places and Lily was always accommodating and always joined me in whatever snack we found. Lily is a delight... you must meet her!

If you are looking for a 5+ star private guide to show you Shanghai, choose Lily Z. We enjoyed her great personality for two, half day tours of Shanghai. She showed us the sights, sounds, smells, and culture of Shanghai. We moved about town in a comfortable car with skilled driver (the local traffic is no place for a novice), and hit all of the high spots, the back alley sections and lunch spots for the locals. Lily was quite knowledgeable and a real joy to be with .

Lily is a fabulous guide! Our 12 hour tour covered all we'd hoped for: Fuxing Park, French Concession, Yu Garden, Bazaar and art galleries, Old Town, Jewish tour, Shanghai Tower, and an amazing 7-stop authentic food tour with locals. Lily combines knowledge, warmth, humor and spirit to convey, in limited time, the true essence of Chinese daily life, history, culture, art, religion, customs and cuisine (not just facts-and-figures), improving our entire trip. Flexible, yet great time-manager. A real find!

Lily was a superb guide showing us her beloved Shanghai. She was very proud of her city and it showed in her commentary. We especially enjoyed Fuxing Park - the park where the senior citizens enjoyed their lives and daily rituals. How wonderful the respect shown to the elderly. We had a great experience at a local tea house learning your customs and seeing your way if life. Lily was cheerful and very bubbly and we so enjoyed her. I would use her again!! Beverly & Wallace .

Not only Beijing duck and Shanghai noodles and BULLFROG on rice in three separate restaurants, but also the Muslim (Urghar) area where we stood at a roadside stall eating superb lamb skewers and really excellent breads straight out of the oven.

I have been to Shanghai many times before and arranged to meet Lily at Pudong Maglev station. Lily met us with a great smile and gave us a fabulous day of sightseeing and a great lunch including city sights, cruise, Shanghai Tower etc maximising our short stay. I would like Lily as my guide any time in Shanghai.

Lily was a wonderful tour guide and took me to a lot of great places in the city center of Shanghai! So much great food in the city! We went to a lot of restaurants that you would never know to go to, so it is well worth hiring Lily to see all of these places and eat great food. We also got to see the Bund after eating. The walk was helpful and the view was wonderful! Great place for pictures.

"Lily was prompt, flexible and very professional. Because of her attention to my needs we were able to see all the highlights of interest, sample local foods and enjoy the night lights along the Bund in this single tour."

Lily was absolutely one of the best TbyL's guide we have ever had !! (Have had almost a dozen). Her English was perfect. And she was personable, knowledgeable, and flexible with our schedule and desires. First day was Shanghai, and the second was Zhujiajiao, and ancient Ming city of canals and shops with a boat ride. Very different and pleasant day out of the big city. Amazing time with an amazing tour guide. (Would give 6 stars if available !!)

What a great human with great positive attitude. The best customer served I have had in my whole trip to China. I was stuck at the airport and Lily saved me, I am 15 and I don't speak Chinese. I was at martial arts camp. I missed my connecting flight due to weather issues, She is sweet nice, covered me with blanket when I fell asleep, she actually screamed at the airport staff till they gave me transfer paper. Thank you Lilly so much I will see you next summer

Lily made our Hangzhou experience a wonderful event. She was engaging and personable, we really enjoyed our time with her. She is very knowledgeable about the customs and history of the Lingyin Temple and West Lake, telling us stories and pointing out beautiful carvings and structures in the area. She is also very professional, the logistics of the trip included a train ride and car for the day. It all went very smoothly. Highly recommend Lily if you are touring the Shanghai area!

Lily was AMAZING! Her English was extremely strong. She is smart, flexible, and patient. She took us to Old Shanghai, the gardens and temples as well as the Bund and Pearl tower. She made our trip fun, yet we learned SO much. Her recommendations were spot on. We fell in love with Shanghai because of her. The lunch spots she took us to were outstanding! Book her early- she is a find!

Lily made our one day in Shanghai wonderful and memorable! She did it all - took us to sites we wanted to see, showed us interesting and unique places along the way, and prepared a perfect one-day introduction to the city. She was incredibly knowledgeable, very friendly to all, and flexible with our schedule (we wanted to see a lot!). And, she did it all with a genuine smile. We highly recommend her; you'll be in good hands with Lily!

Lily has put together a first rate foodie tour for a great food city. Some food you likely never knew about, others you may know but are presented in the best ways at original locations. The tour also builds in some sightseeing and walking which is desirable since you will be happily stuffed All tour guides should have Lily's combination of knowledge and personality!

Lily was WONDERFUL!!!! She is energetic and informative with beautiful command of the English language. She took us down backstreets in Shanghai to taste and sample the local cuisine. She explained local customs and how different dishes were used and their significance. We walked along the Bund and experienced the brilliant light show before returning to our ship. I cannot recommend Lily more highly. Don't miss your opportunity to spend some time with her on your visit to Shanghai.

We are very glad that we chose Lily for the 1.5 day tour of Shanghai. She was professional, personable and very knowledgeable of Shanghai history and current events. She contacted us prior to the tour to find out our specific interests and tailored the tour to the sites that we wanted to see. Her English skills are excellent. She has a great sense of humor, and her restaurant recommendations were perfect. We would not hesitate to request her services again. Thanks Lily. Frank and Martha Gonzalez

Lily was an excellente guide, always accommodating our request and always with a smile. The tour takes you to many exciting spots you would never have been in (many with only chinese menus) and everything was delicious and top notch. She provides plenty of variety in the tour, everything from dumplings, noodles, lamb and even frogs!(which were delicious). Thank you Lily! If we come back we will surely meet again.

Shanghai is a wonderful and beautiful city and my guide, Lily matches those traits. I can not say enough to praise Lily and express how great she made my one day Shanghai experience. Her English is excellent; any better and I would have felt like my guide was American, not Chinese. She has the perfect attitude, friendly, fun, but never misses an opportunity to educate you in an interesting manner. She knows her stuff! I love guided tours. You get so much out of them and this was the best of many.

What a wonderful two days in Shanghai. Lily is a wonderful guide. She was on time with a driver and away we went. The bund, old town Local Restaurants, the fabric market, where Nancy had two silk dresses custom made, Lily volunteersd to send them when they were ready. We visited the Confuces memorial, a really interesting visit to the Jade Budist Temple. We felt that Lily was a friend showing her friends Shanghai not a guide. Do yourself a favor, book a tour with Lily.

This was a fantastic tour that showcased some hidden gems that only the locals would know about. Lily was flexible working within my time constraints and her genuineness made it feel less like a tour and more like old friends just enjoying the the Shanghai food culture. Her knowledge of not just the culinary delights, but also the history of Shanghai and the various cultural aspects of the city meant it was like 3 tours in 1. I would definitely recommend it if you are visiting Shanghai.
