Close to the gardens is the Shanghai's bazaar, a great number of small streets and lanes where vendors sell their products and food stuff to the tourists and local people. It is called the Yuyuan Garden - because "Yu" in Chinese means "peace and health"-- a place of peace and comfort in the heart of busy Shanghai.

Due to Covid19, traveling by train as a foreigner has become more difficult and challenging (I hear.) So I found Tom on the internet, and I am so happy I did. His English is perfect, his driving is calm, and overall is he is very professional. Little chitchat, very knowledgeable when answering questions, and plans every move ahead, such as arranging a second local driver when outside cars are not allowed to enter some Suzhou sites. I loved his explanations, his sites and lunch recommendations. I totally recommend Tom and will definitely hire him again in the future, even when the Covid19 threat ends.
The guide that saved my memorable Shanghai trip

Tom was our guide in Shanghai. He can communicate well in English. He is punctual and very good with direction.
On our way to the airport, I realized that I left my ipad at the hotel. Tom was kind enough to get the ipad from the hotel and pass it to my aunt without extra charge!

We really appreciate the good service and will definitely recommend Tom to my other friends. Thank you very much Tom!!!

Visited Shanghai for vacation, and contacted Tom for Airport transfer pickup and also for 2 days of guided tour. On the first day of the tour, Tom took us all around Shanghai, we went to the Jade Temple, Yu Garden, The Bund and a lot of other places. On the second day of the tour, Tom took us to visit Zhujiajiao water village. What impressed us the most about Tom is how knowledgable he is regarding the stories and history of each and every single place. Not only that, he also explains about the little small details such as symbols, characters, arts and what each of them meant. He spoke excellent English, and he was also very patient with 2 of my kids. Overall a very pleasant experience and will not hesitate to recommend Tom to others who are visiting Shanghai and looking for a tour guide!
