Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a wonderful time with our guide Chloe! Upfront communication was very easy via WhatsApp.
    We had visited Bund and Yu garden the day before on our own and she was very flexible to accommodate, what we had seen already and what not. So we visited Shanghai tower and Jade Buddha temple instead.
    The water city of zhujiajiao was the highlight.
    Chloe was very kind, professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire day. Her English is very good!

    Our tour of Shanghai was very informative and enjoyable. We were able to experience all the key aspects of the city as per our itinerary and particular interest.
    The detailed knowledge, clarity of communication and thoughtful consideration of our individual needs by our guide, Nora, together with her delightful sense of humour made our visit truly special and memorable. We highly recommend this Jenny's Tours for the super experience we were given!

    Annie met us on time at our hotel and gave us a marvellous tour of Shanghai. We visited the Bund, the East Nanjing Road, the French Concession, the Yu Yuan Gardens and the New Year Lantern display and many other places of interest. Annie was personable and friendly throughout, and her English was perfect, but most of all she made us laugh. Often. And that made a good day into a really memorable one. Thanks, Annie.

    It was extremely interesting to see the two different towns, enjoy the scenery and savour the local cuisine. The Watertown was nice and quaint, it supposedly looks like how China was in the past. The shops were cute, artsy and reasonably priced. The whole tour felt rushed though. Even though the advertisement indicates 10 hours, we were back at the hotel in 8. The advertised tour does not mention a minimum participant number, but as they only had our 2 person party, they informed us the night before the tour that we could cancel or pay an extra $100. As we had nothing planned and it was too late to get something else, we chose for the extra ‘cash’ payment. Our guide, Tom, spoke English exceptionally well, was very interesting and had tons of things to explain. We learned a lot! He made us feel rushed though. The lunch was very good (and way too much…) in a very authentic restaurant. We would maybe have preferred to eat in the water town, but no complaints at all.
    So, beside from the feeling rushed, and the last minute $100 charge, we really enjoyed the tour and are very pleased we choose it!

    Decent tour with stops at important landmarks. Our guide Michael was awesome, adding stories where appropriate. Good way to get some introduction behind the history of the city. Stop At Silk factory was purely marketing!

    Everything was excellent and Linda was a great guide she explained everything with a lot of detail. Definitely I would recommend it.

    This is my first time in China. Booked a day tour in Shanghai - went to Shanghai Tower, South Bund Fabric Market & Zhujiajao Water Town. Yuyuan Garden was a bonus as we had extra time.

    Shanghai tower is a must see to get an overview of the city. It's an amazing and clever architecture. The fabric market is a good place to get tailored clothes for yourself. My tour guide, Alice, was so helpful - she helped me to bargain! Zhujiajao is my highlight of the tour - I love the alleyways, the shops, the local food, boat ride and especially the vibe of the ancient town. Yuyuan Garden is the city's old town filled with modernity.

    I am really thankful to Alice, for making my first trip to China enjoyable and enlightening at the same time. Did I mention that she's so helpful? She even helped me to look for a cream that my friend wanted, called the pharmacy to ask if it was available and especially made a detour for me to go to the pharmacy to purchase the cream. That's going the extra mile and I am really grateful and thankful. I would definitely return to China again and would be happy to join a friendly tour/guide like Jenny's Shanghai Tour. Thank you once again 🙏
