Hi Luis,
We had a fantastic tour in Shanghai, thanks for organizing it for us, we found your company to be very helpful and easy to deal with.

The drivers were very skilled in heavy traffic and looked after us with great courtesy. The cars were always clean and well looked after.

The meals arranged were generally very delicious and some of the restaurants most spectacular. There was plenty, sometimes too much to eat. It would have been useful if there was an option to have less food.Sincerely,
Colin Gerald,UK
