“Shanghai Newman Tours: interesting, educational, funny and enlightening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2011

I arranged for my friends and I to go on the Bund and French Concession Tour in Shanghai and was extremely happy I did. It was one of the best things we did! The tour is interesting, educational, funny and enlightening. It’s not too long and the guides are really friendly and very knowledgeable. Both guides came with ipad computers to show us pictures and maps of the people and places they mentioned. They also take you into some of the buildings they talk about and show places you’d never see otherwise. If you want to go on a tour or even debating doing it, I would highly recommend them.

“Great Tour - Learned a lot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2011

Christopher did a great job on this tour. He functioned well in Shanghai heat (36 degrees C/97 degrees F). Covered a lot of area and never could have learned so much in a single day of self-guided touring. Daniel, thanks for meeting with us and for your comments and insight. My only suggestion would be to offer tours at a fixed price with credit card and discount for cash payment.

“Informative, fun and very professional. The kind of tour you want to be part of in every city you visit!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2011

The Shanghai Museum tour is definitely the most interesting museum tour anyone will ever join.I was amazed by the amount of information I've absorbed in two hours about China history and culture. A must.

I've also joined the Ghost tour. A fun introduction to the Shanghai (and not only) ghost stories, contextualized within the culture and history of China. Christopher is an amazing story teller and you'll get hooked since the beginning.

Absolutely fantastic!

“Excellent tour of Shanghai French Concession”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2011

My wife and I booked this tour last-minute and it was fantastic. Our guide was Daniel Newman himself and his knowledge of the city was immense. The walking was very manageable and not physically challenging, and Daniel filled the whole time with great details about the city we would have never noticed on our own. He was also very good at tailoring the tour to the questions we asked. A few times we stepped off into a side street to view a landmark or attraction related to a question asked earlier, and those are the kinds of experiences you just don't get with crowded prepackaged tours.

“Excellent introduction to Shanghai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2011

Shanghai is a big city and a personal guide is a small but affordable luxury. Daniel and his team know Shanghai inside-out. They provide more tips and information than any guide book can and pace their tours according to your interest. Highly recommended
