Janny, the tour guide, has a wealth of knowledge regarding Shanghai that she generously shares with you. My tour of the artisan soy sauce factory was very informative in that I had no real knowledge on how soy sauce was made but also because of the questions Janny was able to answer regarding Shanghai and the surrounding areas in our trip to and from the factory. While I live in Shanghai, I walked away knowing a lot more about soy sauce (which is one of the fundamental parts of Shanghainese food) as well as Shanghai that really enriches my experiences here. I would highly recommend this to anyone that is looking for something informative that has a personal touch with a high level of service.

My husband and I spent 2 days touring Shanghai with Janny at the beginning of January. She has a large menu of tours you can choose from and she is completely flexible in being able to custom tailor tours for clients. Janny knows EVERYTHING about Shanghai and we felt that we really saw a lot of sites, as well as getting behind the scenes experiences showing us how people live. We would highly recommend Shanghai Pathways for those who want a deeper understanding of the people and culture of Shanghai.

We booked an excursion through Jenny at Shanghai Pathways. Jenny was extremely accomadating and a delight to work with. We chose to do the Home Cooking and Watertown Tour. Chef Frank was fabulous. Frank picked us up at the Hotel and took us to the local market where we picked up our fresh vegetables and meats for our cooking class. We then went to Frank's house and learned how to cook authentic chinese food with his family. It was a wonderful way to experience real chinese culture. Frank was very sensitive to our food allergies and tastes. My husband speaks chinese and frequents the country often but has never spent time at a families house. He said this was the best experience he has ever had. After our class, Frank and his family accompanied us at our request to the watertown. Frank's wife and daughter are so sweet and a joy to be around. No need to spear chinese because Frank's english is perfect. This is a tour that we have recommended to everyone who has or is going to Shanghai. Jenny and Frank are doing a great job. Sorry for the late entry.

A great experience. Local people were more at ease and more likely to interact and talk (albeit through our guide) to us. Great local knowledge! Got some fantastic photos! Would definitely recommend!!!
