Really feels like seeing the whole town. May is full of energy and maken the trip exciting. Also feels remarkable save to cycle through Shanghai. Loved it!

Our guide May was very friendly and funny. She was able to cater to all needs in the group, and made it a fun and exiting day for everyone.

Fascinating tour of Shanghai. Loved the food too! Location of start point not obvious even when dropped in exactly the right place by taxi.

May was an outstanding guide and sadly shepherded us through the back streets of Shanghai.

The tour guide was awesome
