Our guide David was excellent and really made the tour a very positive experience. He is very informative and knows the town inside and out.
Zhoujiajiao is a must see in Shanghai! The atmosphere is peaceful compared to the big city and the local food is delicious! The shopping is great and the prices are lower than you will find in the downtown.
