What to Expect
This action-packed sightseeing tour begins with front-door pickup from your Shanghai hotel in an air-conditioned minivan. At the 19th-century Jade Buddha Temple, a Qing dynasty landmark, your guide gives a rundown on 5,000 years of the history and culture of the fast-paced city. Learn how traditional handicrafts have been kept alive with a visit to the Fresh Water Pearl Gallery, where one lucky tour-goer even gets a free pearl to take home. Mingle with locals at People's Square before perusing 12,000 artifacts at the Shanghai Museum. After a tasty local lunch, stop at the picturesque Yu (Yuyuan) Garden and stroll along the Bund, Shangai’s legendary waterfront. Keep ticking off Shanghai highlights with a firsthand peek at the famous tree-lined boulevards of the French Concession district and the nightlife district of Xintiandi. Even first-time travelers will be Shanghai experts by the time they’re dropped back to their hotels.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the history and background of the places visited. No pushy sales at pearl and silk center. Although the1 hour in the Shanghai Museum was far too short, it gives you the opportunity for planning your next visit.

Uninterested. Socially awkward. Robotic. Impatient. We were happier to roam and explore ourselves...
