    Travel from the airport to Shanghai CBD is quick, much cheaper than a taxi and hasslefree. The Maglev is well run and offers a professional transport service.

    Dongchang road ferryThis is such a cheap and easy way to cross the river and even though you only have windows, the views are really great. Note that there are limited seats and you may need to wait a while for the Ferry to complete its roundabout trip

    Traveling inside Shanghai is seamless and so easy with the Metro. Added together, the distance these lines cover is claimed to be the longest in the world.

    I really enjoy the cruise... It was worth it. However the waiting dock was not sterile from smokers despite the non smoking signs everywhere. Spend the 1 hour evening here and enjoy Shanghai.

    Super reliable, super punctual and easy to book, and all in excellent English and with great flexibility. And much more than just a car rental, you can also book a tour of Shanghai with them. Or if you need a car to go to a PCR testing center. A big plus for us: you don't need to set up Alipay or Wechatpay to use their services. Another big plus: the drivers are nice and helpful.

    We have just returned from a cruise on Holland America Westerdam that started with an overnight stay in Shanghai. We travelled to Shanghai 3 days before and stayed in central Shanghai. We expected that the overnight stay on the ship would be a high lite but due to the isolated position of the cruise port it was difficult. Access to central Shanghai from the cruise port can be difficult.
    You can take the shuttle bus for US$20.00 return but does not leave until 9.00am and returns at 3.30pm. Not much time to look around. There is a train station some 5kms away that can be access by shuttle bus but only leaves on the half hour and taxi will not take you as they are looking for a fare into Central Shanghai. The best way to access central Shanghai is by taxi at around 120RMD. This will be the cheapest way if there is a group. Most taxi will take 4 adults.
    The check in at the port was very good, only took about 15 mins, as there a number of personnel available. The port facilities are also very good but as I have stated it is in a very isolated place.

    I was thrilled to see the old street, unfortunately there was not much to look at.
    Riding around in Rickshaw was ok, only the the driver forcibly asked us for a tip besides the fare. He got angry at our 20Yuan tip and even called some other drivers to come to us.
    ..and we thought tip was supposedly voluntary...

    My family and I recently visited Shanghai for a family vacation and we used Miki for our transportation services for 2 days while you were there. You know that communication in China can be very hard with not having the proper internet and the language barrier but Miki made each day so enjoyable and pleasant for us. She was even able to get us around Shanghai at night safely with two kids. They took a shopping, picked us up and dropped us off everywhere we needed to go and the price was excellent for us. I am recommending the service to all people on here and will definitely use her service again if we travel back to Shanghai and when we go to Bali.

    The driver was there 15 minutes early. While he didn't speak much English, he was efficient and timely. Correspondence with the company was easy and clear. Would definitely use them again.

    Travelled a lot on the metro and the light rail in Shanghai, found it easy to buy tickets and it's convenient travel at a very reasonable price. The light rail you get to see a little more of the sights of the city.
    I would recommend it as a travel mode.

    Tom was a fantastic guide! His knowledge of the area and its rich history, as well as the highlights of the the area in which we were staying were immeasurable. I highly recommend this tour!

    We rent it last month for a friend birthday. The car is clean and quite comfortable. The driver is really nice he agreed to stop the SUV in the Bund. We really had a great night, :)

    Many of the cab drivers seemed to get us there quickly but be prepared for an old school experience. If your phone is capable (iPhone) I recommend using Apple Maps and showing the driver your anticipated route. That might have helped my extended trip from the hotel to the airport although I am not sure it was this specific company...
