Our planner provided us with an imaginative itinerary that we would never have imagined ourselves. She was responsive with her suggestions and to answer our questions. We had planned to stay in Shanghai and perhaps to out to one of the water towns. Our planner suggested that we think a little bigger and go to Huangshan and stay for 3 nights. We loved the boutique hotel--probably our favorite place.
Our trip required a lot of moving around; our three guides + drivers got us to and from each location without a single misstep. We didn't waste a minute trying to figure out our logistics. I would say that each one went above our expectations. Also, the within Shanghai itinerary got us to the top spots without a hitch.
The only thing I would fault is that our guide in Huanshan did not speak English as clearly as we would have liked, but he certainly did his best. All three guides were soft spoken, personable and attentive to detail.
Also, while knowledgeable about China, none of the guides were academic or history experts. But we have no complaints!
The walk around the Yellow Mountain; staying at the boutique Hotel; the walks around Shanghai, especially along the Bund at sundown; lunch with a local family in Shanghai.
Also I appreciated the ease of payment and that the itinerary matched our budget.
Perhaps stay longer in Shanghai and request a special tour of the architecture in the former French concession; explore each of the "former" concessions in Shanghai.
