Spent a few days in shanghai with 2 teenagers. Booking was very easy by email and staff very reactive. Tour was customized for what we wanted to see. We saw some very unique places in shanghai with a lot of info from our guide. Our 2 teenagers and our selves Will definitely remember this expérience for a long Time.

Everything went so smoothly from booking, to meeting point and the actual tour !
Did a 4 hour tour with a friend, our guide was so cool. he understood what we were interested in and showed us some great places from very old Shanghai to more modern with some great stops on the way, including the best Dim Sum we had during our week there !
The bike is sooo cool like we felt transported in time !
Highly recommended !

This was our second time to enjoy the sidecar tour- it is a great way experience the city and the streets first hand. The guides were informative and gave good insight into the area through which we travelled. We were able to customise our tour according to the areas/types of places we wanted to see and to show our guests. Totally recommended.

Thank you for your kind words: having returning guests is THE proof that we're doing it right!

See you again for a week end trip in Xian or a longer adventure in Yunnan maybe?

Riding in htis historic ex-military vehicle was a unique experience. And after having seen Shanghai from a bus and taxis, being down at street level in the hustle and bustle was simply amazing. We booked a four hour tour and it was barely enough time to see what we wanted to see. I would recommend avoiding rush hours because the traffic does get horrendous, but they do a great job weaving through it. This was billed as a peak experience in Shanghai, and indeed it was. The only thing that would have been better is if both drivers spoke English. My wife's driver did not.

Hi doc,

We'll consider the machine guns, not sure they'll please the local police though :)
We have well noted your comment regarding the fact that your wife's driver did not speak english, we're working on finding a way of doing tours which won't make this an issue.

We did the 2 hr ride, with four people, two bikes. Sammy and Kevin were excellent and so knowledgable about the ins and outs of Shanghai. We did this tour after five days in Shanghai and saw all new things. We learned so much about the local culture and history, and had a blast riding in a side car on the crazy streets of Shanghai! You must do this tour!!
