Tour details

This 8-hour private tour is perfect for travelers that don't want the typical highlight tours. You'll visit some of the more unusual sites of Shanghai to discover unique perspectives of city's heritage and daily life as well as some bizarre scenes. The morning starts with a dive into Shanghai's unique park culture and street life, a visit to the Bird and Flower Market and into the communist past with the Propaganda Museum.

In the afternoon you'll head to Qibao Ancient Town to enjoy lunch and soak in the 1000 years of history. Qibao Ancient Town is a spiritually sanctuary place built during the Song Dynasty. Qibao meaning "seven treasures" in Chinese is named for a legend that there were seven treasure around that area; Gold Lotus Scripture, Magic Tree, Big Bell, Buddha, Gold Cock, Jade Chopsticks, and Jade Axe. Qibao is also famous by its diversity of food on Qibao Old Street, which made it very well known and even featured on CCTV's "A Bite of China".

    We had a private tour of Shanghai with Kim and a driver. The tour company accommodated us because we had time constraints and were unsure of our arrival time. Kim arrived shortly after being called and was so helpful with planning our day on the spot. He carried our bags, bought us delicious authentic foods, shared the history of the culture and incorporated his knowledge of China to maximize our experience. He catered to our interests while giving us valuable insight into the chinese culture. Well worth the experience.
