Tailored Best of Shanghai Tour

Tailored Best of Shanghai Tour


If you want to see the very best that Shanghai has to offer, but only have limited time available then this is just the tour for you.

The tour is inclusive of all transportation costs, so we will pick you up and drop you off at a downtown Shanghai location of your choice to help you make maximum use of your time.

For those with just half-a-day to play with, our “Recommended Half Day Itinerary” packs the highlights of Shanghai’s three most famous sites (The French Concession, Yu Yuan Gardens and The Bund) into just four hours.

And for those that want some added extras we have two delicious meal options, the Bird & Insect Market, or the opportunity to take a boat across the Huangpu and ascend the Shanghai World Financial Centre.

From a taste of ancient China through to colonial architectural splendour, and from delicious Chinese food through to the tallest skyscraper in town, the Best Of Shanghai Tour has it all. So whatever works best for you, let us know, and we’ll lead you on a truly unforgettable tour.
