Il treno partiva alle ore 08:30 dalla stazione di Campo Di Marte, a Firenze. Appena la sera prima avevo salutato mio fratello e finito di sistemare lo zaino da 65L per l'avventura che mi stava aspettando. Ero "pronto". La notte era passata velocemente... come se non avessi dormito. Io, ed i miei genitori, arriviamo in stazione alle 8 puntuali, attraversando Firenze in uno dei pochi (e violenti) temporali estivi.

TripAdvisor's Customer Reviews
Frank is an excellent tour guide. He is very knowledgeable and takes care of his clients. He even took pictures and sent them to me by WeChat.
This was a long day but our guide was knowledgeable and confident. He didn't hurry us and answered all the questions he was asked. We had time for photos and to examine museum exhibits etc for ourselves. We found the trip to the Silk Factory fascinating and the Tea Tasting session was most enjoyable. An excellent lunch was included. We would never have seen all these things by ourselves so totally recommend this tour.
This tour is a great option to know about some of the main tourist points of Shanghai.
The lunch is included in the package of the tour.
I was picked up at the hotel in a car with conditioned air, it guides and driver, and at the end of the tour I had the option of to return to the hotel or to leave in the last point of the tour.
This was a good option to know Shanghai faster and with information of the places by the guide.
Overall it was a great experience to visit many places in Shanghai for one day. The tour guide Frank is very friendly and treat the group well. I felt sometimes that I was in tourist traps but I guess that is typical of a tour like this. Beautiful city though. Thanks Frank!!! :)
Tom is a good guide. Full of information, dates, facts and figures. We visited the Shanghai Museum, three different temples, a silk factory, the jade and pearl center and a large open air flea market/mall area and the Bund. Every stop is an opportunity to shop, but I really felt it in the silk and jade shops. The shop workers hovering, pointing out sales and making suggestions. The tour group was less than 10 people which was great.
Very good tour and tour guide I learned alot from new and old Shanghai. Worth a visit to Shanghai and exploring.
Our tour guide was Frank. He explained everything fantastically. He had awesome English. My husband and I had an amazing time.
Great tour, specially when you have a short stay in the city
