My colleagues and I took one day Flexible Private Nanjing City Highlights Tour and had a wonderful day in Nanjing. Alana from Amazing Shanghai Trip contacted me after booking and arranged all the details about the trip, including contact of our Guide. It saved us a lot of time and ensured a closer look to Nanjing heritage. All the places we visited were amazing, but the hidden secret of this tour is the moment of turning around on the top stairs at Sun Yet-sen Mausoleum. The view was breath-taking. Savor was our Guide who met us at the Nanjing Railway Station. She spent the whole day with as showing and introducing historical and natural sites of Nanjing. Savor was not only professional Guide but also a lovely person to chat. We got lots of interesting information about the history of Nanjing, local and cultural traditions, had a perfect lunch in local restaurant with life performance of local traditional singers and musicians. I highly recommend this tour for exploring Nanjing historical and natural sites in one day.
