Very interesting walking tour through the non-tourist areas of Shanghai with plenty of stops for local breakfast treats.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi, Robin. Sorry to make you misunderstand. The tour is small group tour and we are apologize that we did not show it clearly on tour introduction. But as your mentioned and we just put the small group in the title. Thank you and I hope to serve you or your group in near future. Regards Cindy

Cindy provided a great local tour. She took us to back alley restaurants that were amazing and authentic. These were places we would not have been able to find on our own. She also was able to arrange an authentic ear massage - a must do! It was a great authentic experience.

Cindy was very friendly, but did not appear very knowledgeable about Shanghai or its history. She spent most of the tour time on her phone. The tour only last two hours (not four), and did not take in many of the sites listed in the description. Although this was described as an "early bird" tour, and I booked a start time of 8am, Cindy messaged me to say that this was too early for her, and she pushed it back to a 9am start. We were finished by 11am.

We also enjoyed our second day tour with you and glad we visited the watertown. Everyone also enjoyed the dumpling lunch. Thanks again, Bill

We were a family group of 6 adults in Shanghai for two half day tours. Cindy proved to be the consummate professional: punctual, knowledgeable, affable, flexible, accommodating, cooperative and anything else great that you could wish for. She was more than willing to adjust her original plans to accommodate our personal needs and wishes, providing ya with a most enjoyable two half day tour of Shanghai that left us with nothing but terrific things to say about her and the city itself. You'll love her.

Thanks Cindy for a really nice tour, even though it was a long day. We appreciated your knowledge of the area plus being able to answer our many questions. Everyone enjoyed bullet train ride. Good selection for our lunch. Bill,Tricia,Von,Tim,Max,Pat
The tour was true to it's name. We very much felt we learned a lot about every day Chinese culture in the short amount of time we had. We had been to Shanghai before and wanted to learn more from a local's perspective. The Fabric market was not what I expected so many tailors so little time :) In hindsight I would have booked that part differently maybe doing it on my own without my husband as he is not really into shopping but it definitely was an interesting experience. Thanks again Cindy.

We were in Shanghai from October 18, 2018 to October 23, 2018 Cindy was our tour director and she did a amazing job for all us 8 family members. She was on time each day and she took us around every place and than some. I would highly recommend because I am in the hospitality business and I think she is excellent. Neal Khatri

We had a lovely day with Cindy in Shanghai. She found us after our cruise ship arrived in the port terminal. With our driver taking us around, we traveled to different sites in Shanghai both new and old. We got plenty of time to shop and actually helped us pick up something later that needed customization. She was very knowledgeable about the history of the city she lives in while also having fun with us. Ended with a breathtaking view of the city. Wonderful day overall - thanks Cindy!

I was really looking forward to eating like a "real" Shanghai-ese, and Cindy did not disappoint. We enjoyed authentic breakfast & lunch, and saw some Shanghai sites in-between meals. Traveling with my 80 year old mother (American born Chinese), we considered ourselves "adventurous" eaters... who would have known I would try Hotpot Chili pepper frog and enjoy it? I wish I would have had time to book the night tour and visit speak-easys with Cindy. Beware guys, don't challenge her to a drinking contest.

My 80 year old mother and I had a great Shanghai city tour with Cindy in April 2018. I recommend you read the tour description carefully and take full advantage of Cindy's incredible Shanghai knowledge. Not only cultural, political, historical information, but also Cindy is very savvy negotiating prices... whether at the "knock-off" market or the tailor market, Cindy knows the all the tricks in Shanghai. Fun lady too. I highly recommend.

Cindy was a great guide for our day trip to Hangzhou. In theory it sounds easy enough to get to Hangzhou on your own and see the sites. But I would not recommend it. Traffic is crazy. Let Cindy arrange everything for you and you'll be delivered and picked up at all the various sites in a most efficient manner. Your time is limited, make the most of it! I think Cindy would be fun to go shopping with and I wanted to do her knock-off shopping trip, but I ran out of time. Thank you Cindy we had a great day!
Cindy is very accommodating and knowledgeable. We took this tour from our hotel, she booked us a car that kept our bags safe and then we took the high speed train to the airport. The train is a very cool experience and it truly only takes 6 minutes! Cindy is fun and knows what she is talking about, I recommend her!

We had 10 hours to fill before our evening flight. Cindy Cindy took us to several interesting places throughout the City of Shanghai. She answered all of our questions frankly and with much detail, so we now have a good idea of life in Shanghai - both old and new. The soup dumpling shop that she took us to for lunch was amazing and unusual. We took the Maglev train to the airport - very cool, but do NOT recommend for travelers with more that a carry-on suitcase. Excellent way to see many places.

On time, proffesional, clean car, quick transfer to hotel.
Very professional, punctual and knowledgeable guide. Highly recommend it. This tour is truly while glove you are picked up from your hotel taken to all the sites with convenient transportation and dropped of. The tour consists of many historical cultural sites that includes temples. We also enjoyed our visit at the Tea Village.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Shaheryar. I am so happy you love my tour.
Great tour guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. Had lots of wonderful suggestions on things to see and do. I discovered some great places i never would have found on my own. Highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Scott, it was a pleasure to host you and thank you so much for taking the time to review us!
Cindy is a great and very personable tour guide. It feels more visiting some sights with someone you know than with a guide. I really recommend her and the tour. It is great to see how the people lived 200 years ago in China.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Elize, thank you for your feedback and for joining us at Shanghai Advisor Tour!

We were only in shanghai for a day at the end of our cruise so we arranged for a tour to see as much of the city as possible. Cindy made us a very nice itinerary and arranged for a van for our group to take us all around Shanghai (including a local meal) and made it to the airport with plenty of time for our evening flight home. Would highly recommend her to family, and would use her again next time I'm in China (hopefully there is a next time because one day in Shanghai really isn't enough)

Cindy gave us a fantastic tour. She couldn't stop the rain in Hangzhou but we still enjoyed the tour. She is extremely knowledgeable and helped my wife with mobility issues and kept the tour at a slower pace. The high speed train was quite amazing

We had two excellent days with Cindy in Shanghai - punctual, efficient and well organised - despite it being Chinese New Year . Fluent English - would highly recommend.
