In Shanghai we have Matthew (Mr Fan) as tour guide and he is also a great tour guide! He looks after us and making sure we are not conned by the taxis and also other things to look out for. He makes sure the driver drives safely and also not to talk on the mobile phone while driving. Many minor things are well taken care by Matthew. It seems minor but it means a lot to us! He has good knowledge of Shanghai and we will recommend you to use him often as a tour guide for your other customers! Matthew is also very initiative tour guide as he always avoids using the route where there are many other visitors and we can have fun and taking our time to enjoy every moment!
