Incredible Highlights - No Car
This option is valid for up to 4 people, and the tour includes an expert guide and an amazing range of cultural sites. Transportation is via metro and taxis is at your expense (typically 200-300RMB).

This is an ideal way to customize your trip, so you see only the places in Shanghai you’re interested in. Your private guide will be invaluable in helping organize transport, where to eat, and entry passes. There will be no language obstacles or travel planning to worry about. From visiting Yuyuan Garden and bazaar, to a tea ceremony, temples, and towers—it's a flexible, fun way to explore Shanghai.

What to Expect

Your day begins with a departure from your selected starting point. You can choose to book a private vehicle or travel by public transport. The itinerary is completely flexible, so your guide can adapt to your needs. First stop is the Pudong financial district where you can view Shanghai from an impressive vantage point. Choose from the observatory tower of World Financial Center, the Jin Mao, the Oriental Pearl Tower, World Financial Tower, or Shanghai Tower (extra charges).

Explore the Riverside Promenade or visit The Bund. You can also visit the Confucius Temple (extra charges), enjoy dumplings for lunch (extra charges), and go to Yuyuan Garden and Bazaar (extra charges). A highlight is being part of a Tang Dynasty style tea ceremony, followed by a visit to Shanghai’s Concession area, where you’ll see colonial-era buildings transformed into restaurants and shops. The tour will end back at your start point.

I suggest if you take a tour that you let the tour company know at time of booking about the time you need the tour to be over. If it is a private tour, it should be able to work within your schedule.

I agree with Monique A. Tour guide came to our hotel lobby. We had our own vehicle (small van) for just us two, and the guide, for the day.
