Jo-Anne's Feedback on 9 Days Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong Tour

Contribute by  Jo-Anne from Canada; Tour date: 7/6/2010


Expo was definitely a highlight although it was very busy as to be expected of a world fair. The volunteers there were helpful but signs weren't well labelled. We really enjoyed going to the top of the Shanghai Financial Center.We went shopping in Shanghai along Nanjing Road but didn't find much except for young teen/20-year old clothes. I found it to be rather expensive. In Guangzhou, we did a lot of shopping in this mall. I wish I could tell you the name (It was something with the Underground market but I've forgotten it.) It has clothing for everyone and cheap! It wasn't too far away from the Liu Hua Park.

We really liked Redd in Hong Kong. He had a great personality and sense of humour. He was very knowlegeable and gave good suggestions of what to see in our spare time.And the drivers were very safe, especially after having ridden a taxi from Expo to the hotel at super fast speeds! The air-conditioned van/bus were also a plus.

The Radisson and Marriott Hotels were excellent. We really enjoyed the Marriott for what it had to offer. The service was excellent and the breakfasts at both hotels were delicious.

I enjoyed the personalized tour, not having to wait on other people in a tour group. I felt at ease with traveling with only my family.

Definitely, we will recommend your company to our friends or colleagues, and I would also look you up for future travels to China.

There are some tips for the Expo, carry an umbrella. Surprisingly, not many people wear hats. Outdoor activities are best done in the morning or evening as it's extremely hot and humid during the day. If you're travelling with a toddler, it's best to ask if certain tourist attractions are stroller-friendly. We had to haul our stroller and kid in many places. Definitely see the Shanghai Financial Center and go to the top for a great view. The Jumbo Floating Restaurant in Hong Kong was great as well as the lunches in Shanghai. The Silk factory was ok but very pushy when it comes to buying comforters.
