With a population nudging 25 million and centuries of history, Shanghai can be daunting. Iron out the lumps with the help of a private guide on this flexible Shanghai private tour that’s perfect for first-time visitors and covers most of the city’s main attractions. Choose to travel by metro and taxi, by private car, or by private car with lunch and key entrance fees covered.

What to Expect

Your private guide will meet you in your central Shanghai hotel. Be sure to tell them if there’s anything you’d like to focus on during your tour as your day is fully customizable.

A typical tour starts in Shanghai’s fashionable French Concession. Watch the locals ballroom dancing, practicing tai chi, or singing in Fuxing Park, and explore its charming avenues. Next, visit the Jade Buddha temple, home to two exquisite jade statues from Myanmar, and People’s Square with its striking modern architecture and weekend Marriage Market.

After lunch, visit the 400-year-old Yu Garden and the old-fashioned teahouse and bazaar nearby. Stroll The Bund and soak up views of Shanghai’s stunning skyline.

Finally, explore the trendy Xintiandi district. From here, your guide will escort you back to your hotel.

Lilly was fun and genuine, gave a lot of insight and organised the tour so we could ride on the fastest Maglev of the day. Would highly recommend.
