Stunning Shanghai River Cruise
lornah584, 07-02-2022
Had a wonderful experience with our guide, Snow. Thoroughly enjoyed the river cruise and the stunning lights around the Bund. The dinner was delicious- Snow was very knowledgeable and helped in recommending food- her knowledge of Shanghai and the history was also exceptional and we enjoyed learning about Shanghai and the different architecture! Highly recommend Snow and the Night Cruise experience!
Memorable night cruise

This was the highlight of my Shanghai visit. We had a tantalising meal and tried out traditional dance moves with performers at the restaurant. This was so much fun. We then proceeded to the pier to board the cruise ship. The view from the top deck was memorable with all the iconic buildings of the city lit up. It was breathtaking to say the least. My guide pointed out all the important buildings around the Bund area as we cruised along. She also highlighted interesting facts about the development of Shnghai. For sure, I'd say this is an unforgettable experience for someone like me who loves visiting cities around the world. I had a fantastic time and the view was spectacular. For a complete Shanghai experience, this cruise is a must. I highly recommend this tour for the best experience.
Great introduction to Shanghai w/Toddler

A very nice introduction to Shanghai on our first night in town. The cruise at night was a beautiful view of the city with picturesque views on both sides of the river. The dinner was excellent and our guide was in our hotel lobby with a warm car ready to take us to the cruise at the appointed time. This is a great introductory tour and our very friendly guide, Snow, did a great job of pointing out the different landmarks and points of interest from the cruise and the drive. I would highly recommend this tour when you first arrive but recognize that it’s an introduction to the city, if there is a particular aspect of Shanghai that you wish to dive deep on, I’d recommend finding a tour that focuses on your area of interest.
Perfect first night in Shanghai

After a long journey to Shanghai- this was the perfect way to start our trip. Daisy was the most helpful guide. She was close to my brother and I's age so we talked about many things under the sun. She took us to a DELICIOUS restaurant where we ate the best dim sum. She got us the best seat on the river cruise tour and explained everything so well. We loved spending time with her. She made us feel so special!
Very nice trip during challenging times!

As a foreigner during the Corona crisis, this tour was the only one which did not cancel and Alana spend significant efforts to get the River Cruise tickets organized upfront. We had a great time with a wonderful spot on the boat, a lot of background information and some nice dinner at the restaurant. 100% recommended!
