“My sister, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience with Lynn. Her bubbly personality enhanced our evening! The dim sum was delicious. Traffic was lighter than expected so we arrived at the theater before it was open. Lynn improvised a short walking tour of the historic neighborhood around the theater to pass the time.
Our driver was also prompt and professional. We felt very safe in the busy Shanghai traffic. Seatbelts were easily accessible, which is not always the case in China. The car was very clean and comfortable.
We would absolutely book again.”

“After a week of touring the historical sites in Beijing and Xian, China, a shopping excursion in Shanghai was fun.
Tour was run by a very knowledgeable guide and included a formal tea service in a tea shop where different teas were sampled. Followed by some free time to shop at one of the many street shopping areas before having lunch at a traditional Chinese restaurant, which was included as part of the tour. The highlight was an extended shopping time to haggle and bargain at one of the most popular and busy shopping villages in Shanghai. Bring your best haggling skills because they will surely be tested! Definitely a fun experience!”
