“So bad it is almost funny”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

We really enjoyed the 2RMB ferry ride across the river from Puxi to Pudong, so I'm not sure why we didn't return by the same route. Instead we paid 50 RMB each for the pleasure of a ride through the Bund Sightseeing Tunnel. Only there are no sights to see. There are a few flashing lights, three waving puppets and that's your lot. Our 10 year old was giggling about just how bad it was. We shared our car with a Chinese family and even their baby wasn't impressed with the lights. Go for a laugh, but only if you can afford to squander 50 RMB.

“Try it once and only once”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

I've taken this trip once in each direction, it's not really worth the price paid. If you want to see it once it's nice to take the trip but there really isn't anything here. It's just an overpriced way to get from one side of the river to the other with a small light show distraction.

“The epitome of China!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

I would have loved to be in the planning meeting for this tunnel. "Okay guys, we need to make a tunnel under the river to move pedestrians from one side to the other, but while we`re at it, let`s try to make it a tourist attraction, any ideas? Yes, Jerry, you have something?"
Jerry: "I think that we should fill the tunnel with blinking neon lights but make it light enough so that you can see the cords and wires hanging all over the place!"
.....That`s brilliant, anything else Jerry?"
Jerry: "Yeah, put wacky waving inflatable arm men in the middle of the tunnel and if we could do a weird voice over yelling random phrases like Magma! and Asteroid field! we have a sure winner!"
....Brilliant

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2014 via mobile

After reading the reviews here, I was hesitant to try it, but we found ourselves at The Bund, trying to figure out how to get across the river to The Pearl Tower, and gave it a shot - so glad we did! It was one of the highlights of our day! You buy a ticket to ride in your own personal capsule which allows you to enjoy and photo this cool, trippy, multi colored light show in a tunnel at your leisure. For me, the ride ended way too soon!

“Not worth the price ”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 November 2013 via mobile

This is no worth the money. If it was half priced I could recommend it. Take the water taxi or subway. Much cheaper and quicker. You, like us, will be disappointing in paying for this.
