We only had 24 hours in Shanghai and this 8 hour tour proved to be the perfect snapshot of the city. Our tour guide Frank was fantastic. We were taken care of at every turn and given adequate time to explore each site.

The tour gave us a nice overview of sights in the city. At two of the stops we had a short presentation of the industry being presented and then an opportunity to shop. I viewed this as how things were done as the sales were not hard selling. Our guide spoke English well, presented the tour well and engaged in additional questions about the City and culture. Hotel pick up was very convenient.
