Private Half-Day Tour: Amazing Highlights of Old Shanghai
From US$49.00
Overview
Without a guide to interpret, much of Shanghai can get lost in translation. Discover Old Shanghai on this half-day guided tour that includes a tea ceremony, a dumpling feast, the Yu Garden, Old Town, and the Shanghai Confucian Temple. Your guide will provide context along the way, and because it’s a private tour, you’ll receive plenty of personal attention. A choice of pickup and drop-off locations adds extra flexibility.
What to Expect
Your private guide will meet you at your desired city center starting point and time. Please note that if you start your tour after 2pm you’ll visit the Bund instead of the Shanghai Confucian Temple and enjoy a river cruise instead of the tea ceremony.
Your first stop is Yu Garden, a famous classical garden. Stroll the area to discover traditional shops, homes, and souvenirs, before you walk to Shanghai Old Town. Along the way stop for “xiaolongbao” soup dumplings, a favorite local delicacy.
Next, visit the 13th-century Shanghai Confucian Temple, once Shanghai’s top university. Sample local teas and learn the benefits of the different varieties at a tea ceremony before your guide accompanies you back to your hotel—or another city center destination if you prefer.

Outstanding tour

We signed up for a half day tour. Our guide, Summer, was great and went out of her way (and overtime) to show us additional sights once she learned this was our first visit to Shanghai. Can't say enough about how much we enjoyed the...More
