TAILOR-MADE tour specialist Bespoke Beijing has opened a new office in Shanghai, changing the name of the six-year-old firm to become Bespoke Travel Company to reflect its growth and expansion in China.
Founder and CEO Sarah Keenlyside said the launch of the Shanghai office was fuelled by demand for travellers seeking travel experiences provided by specialists with their finger on the pulse of the city.
“For a travel company to do a great job of your trip, it needs not just any staff but a team of internationally minded individuals who live and breathe that city on a daily basis, and who are as obsessed with the latest new restaurant opening as they are with traffic flow,” she said.
On board the Shanghai office are two staff with years of experience in the industry and the city, she added.
Keenlyside said the tour programmes in Shanghai will be more glamorous compared to Beijing’s “earthy experiences”, and will range from excursions in the Yu Gardens with a poet to Art Deco discovery walks abd bespoke cocktail experiences.
Bespoke Travel Company offers itinerary design, smart car hire, knowledgeable local Chinese tour guides and new expert-led Signature Experiences.
