Lily was full of knowledge that she shared with us about Shanghai and Suzhou and also answered many questions about life in China I asked her about travel on the metro as my friend wouldnt come with me to try it. Back in Shanghai she took me on a ride on the metro and explained how to get around. She went above and beyond for me!

Lily was the best tour guide I have ever had. It feels weird to even refer to her as a tour guide because it was like being with a good friend in a new city. Except that friend made the trip so memorable and fun! She was knowledgeable, smart and efficient. I was in Shanghai for only 2 days on a business trip. It was important for me to have someone who could interpret really well and yet use their own knowledge in explaining my ideas. She was able to relay my messages without any miscommunications.

Lily was terrific. We highly recommend her and this tour! We never could have seen so many things in one day on our own. Lily arranged train tickets from Shanghai to Hangzhou, a driver during the day in Hangzhou and train tickets from Hangzhou to Beijing. It was a perfect way to go from Shanghai to Beijing. We are so glad we didn't miss Hangzhou - really one of our favorite parts of the trip so far! West lake cruise with a stop on an island , temple overlooking the lake and a visit to a tea plantation.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Lily was super professional, pleasant and knowledgeable about all things China. The language barrier makes it VERY hard to communicate in China and Lily helped my husband retrieve my husband's phone left in the taxi by calling the taxi company until the driver was located and we arranged to meet and get the phone back. She handled this unexpected situation with patience and grace. After a short tour, she suggested we take the Shanghai Maglev (Magnetic Levitation) back to the airport, which was great!

For our one day layover in Shanghai-Lily was the best! Right on time as we exited the airport, and on a lovely tour of the city! She hit the mark on the amazing garden tour and the old town of Shanghai. And a fantastic luncheon too before our return to the airport. She is really fun, great personality and gave us insight into the culture. Highly recommend!

I included my rating of Lily's 2 days of touring me together.we really enjoyed our visit to the Water Town with Lily. She organized a good driver with a clean car for the drive. Once there, we had a wonderful tour of the highlights of this charming city and even a tour down the canals in a traditional local boat. I recommend Lily highly- she is a pro in the most wonderful way! Paula

I was delighted with Lily - she arrived promptly both days and was charming and interesting both days she was our guide. One day was the Shanghai city tour and today we went out of town to visit the Water Town. We saw wonderful sights - and she was unfailing full of fascinating information all in a lovely way ! I asked to have a traditional local lunch- both meals were delicious and in very nice settings. I recommend Lily highly. Paula

Our tour included a very clean van and a good driver. Lily was funny, good in English, knowledgeable, engaging and very accommodating with all members of our group. Lily, thank you so very much for making our time in your beautiful city of Shanghai so special and giving insights and suggestions for things to do in Shanghai after the tour which we would not have known about! Special thanks to her for assisting me at the hospital when I needed medical attention.

We were a group of 3 American women (in our 30s and 40s). We spent Sunday afternoon touring Shanghai and the following Saturday the full day in Souzhou. Lily is professional, diligent and very personable. We had an amazing full day and felt like we spent the day with a friend and were able to see so much. I would highly recommend Lily and her English is outstanding!

Lily is a very knowledgeable and delightful young lady. She met me at the hotel on time and asked about my interests as we traveled by taxi to the historic Jewish area of Shanghai. She was detailed and informative as we toured the area and the historic buildings. I was enthralled by her knowledge and sense of compassion as I looked at the photographs and information in the old Shanghai Synagogue. This was an emotional visit for me and Lily made it comfortable. I highly recommend her. Thanks Lily.

Lily is an excellent tour guide! She is so easy going and made the day so enjoyable. Not only did we get to see some of the best sites in Shanghai, but she gave us the history of each and every stop. We learned so much and had the chance to really experience the culture. We couldn't have asked for a better day, and we can't thank Liky enough for making our tour such a good time. Highly recommend Lily as a tour guide! You will not regret it!

Lily guided my wife and me around Shanghai and areas close by for 3 delightful days. She earned extremely high marks as a travel professional. She knew her territory well and did all possible to keep us safe, comfortable, and interested. As she got to know us better, she adjusted our itinerary to match our interests. The icing on the cake is her personality. Simply stated, wherever we were and whatever we were doing the three of us had fun...and Lily became our friend, not just our guide.
