Great Tour if you are short on time and want to see a lot!
Jan 2020
I can't say enough great things about this tour. My colleagues and I spent a week in China for work and we had a few hours available before our flights home. We wanted to see what Shanghai was about after spending most of our time in an office working. In just four short hours Tom showed us some amazing sites and shared historical and cultural facts that we never would have learned on our own. I feel like he packaged over a day of sight seeing in this short amount of time without any feeling of being rushed. Tom was incredibly nice and very knowledgeable. If you choose this tour, you will be very impressed. I know we were!

Half day tour with kids
Dec 2019 • Family
This was our first trip to Shanghai with 2 teenage boys. Tom was prompt, excellent English and his depth of knowledge about events and the history of sites we visited, impressive and not boring according to my boys. Would definitely use again.
We visited the Yu garden, a tea shop, the French, English and American concessions- brilliant explanations of the history and differences between each. He dropped us off at a soup bun shop and across the road was an equally delicious chive and scallion pancake shop. ( pictures below). Thank you!!

Great Day in Shanghai
Dec 2019
Tom drove my friend and I around Shanghai for 4 hours. He was on time, polite, knowledgeable, and his English is excellent. For two non mandarin speaking Americans this was crucial. Tom took us to the gardens and explained the history and cultural importance of the location. We then toured the rest of the city and that included a tea tasting session. We learned all about the different types of Chinese tea and the significance of all of them. Finally we finished our tour viewing many of the skyscrapers that makeup the huge Shanghai skyline. Tom dropped us off at our lunch destination at the end of the tour. I highly recommend his services for any English speaking tourists!!

Great Introduction to Shanghai
Jul 2019 • Family
Tom met us at our hotel and toured my husband and two teenagers around Shanghai for a private tour. We booked the half day tour which was perfect. I was surprised how much Tom was able to fit in and the tour was the perfect introduction to Shanghai. We loved the Yu garden and tea tasting. A word of warning - after our tea tasting we were encouraged to buy some tea, which seemed like a great idea since we had so enjoyed learning about the various types of tea. We should have been more careful to check the prices! $400 for 4 packages of tea! Wouldn't have spent that at Harrods with a tea service included. Other than that, we really enjoyed the tour.

Great tour!
Worth doing a Shanghai city tour to get grounded as to what’s what.

Our tour guide was terrific - informed and really helped shape her comments and the whole experience to our interests. She also shared a lot of great places to eat and visit - kept us directed to good, non-touristy places.

We had a fabulous trip with Tom. He spoke excellent English and told us lots of interesting facts about Shanghai.
We had a little problem during the trip and he sorted it out of us with great help.
When we return we will use Tom again.

Tom Zhang was an amazing guide
Jun 2019 • Family
We had Tom Zhang as our guide and he was so friendly, knowledgeable and kept us adults, teens and children all interested and secure.
Would definitely do another tour with him.
Unfortunately we made a mistake of going to a tea shop and bought tea without understand the full price and had to return them. Luckily Tom talked with them and organised our refund so he is very reliable and helpful.
Highly recommend his tour for all ages.

Perfect Half-Day Tour in Shanghi
Jun 2019 • Couples
Judy ( Tour Guide ) and Joe ( Driver ) was outstanding. Meet us at Baoshan Cruise Ship Port on time with a big smile and made us feel welcomed. Frist stop was the Bund, then Yu Gardens, The French Concession and final stop to Pudong Air Port. We did not have a lot of time in Shanghi, China so this was the perfect Half-Day Tour for our party ( 6 people ). Highly recommend Shanghi Tom's Tour Great Service!!! Thank You, Judy.

Excellent guide and variety of sights and activities
May 2019 • Friends
Tom was an excellent tour guide - knowledgeable about history and the modern development of Shanghai, skilled at driving on busy streets, and enjoyable to talk with. The pace of the half day tour felt just right - plenty of walking around the garden, market, etc. and also a relaxing private tea tasting with a tea expert. Tom was also flexible and informative, ensuring that we got where we needed to be next on time and with helpful directions. I highly recommend his tour company!

Great guide and service
Apr 2019 • Family
Tom arrived at our hotel promptly and called to let us know he was waiting in front of our hotel. His car was very clean and had waters available at each seat. Tom spoke very good English so communicating was not an issue. We chose the half day tour to see the Yu Garden, French Concession, The Bund, and the tallest buildings in Pudong. He shared a lot of great cultural information and was patient for our need to take photos and purchase a flute from a vendor. I would highly recommend his services. We hope to return and would book him again.
