Debbie's Feedback on 1 Day Shanghai Tour

Contribute by  Debbie from ; Tour date: 4/10/2017

The trip was extremely well organised, all the communication via email from the UK was fast, clear and efficient. Our Guide Valerie really made the day. She was delightful to spend time with, enthusiastic, friendly, warm, knowledgeable and most importantly she didn’t ever sound as if she were reading a script. She was very helpful over lunch with advice and liaising with the restaurant owner, and she seemed to enjoy, our enjoyment. We are all ‘middle aged’ and she interacted with us easily and we laughed a lot! The driver, Trevor, was also really friendly, he didn’t speak any English, but he still engaged with us, and even brought us each a local pastry. Lunch was in a very small. low key restaurant, more like someone’s front room, and I was a bit worried at first, but the owner was sweet and made every effort to please us. We tried ‘squirrel fish’ which was amazing. And her own brew ‘Grandma’s tea’ was fantastic. She watched over us to ensure we were liking it, and it was a real experience. We later saw other more commercial eateries and I was very glad that we’d experienced her restaurant and, what felt like an authentic local meal.
