Full description
Begin with a visit to the Yuyuan Garden, a classic creation of the Ming Dynasty, before exploring the old streets of Shanghai dating back to the Qing Dynasty. Immerse yourself in the Shanghai Museum of Ancient Chinese Art, where a collection of more than 120,000 precious and rare works dazzles visitors, making it the most remarkable cultural institution in the city. Before lunch, visit the famous Silk Museum. After sampling local cuisine at lunchtime, enter the hallowed Jade Buddha Temple and marvel at priceless jade statues from Burma. Next up, enjoy a tour of the famous Bund, also known as the International Architecture Exhibition. Pause at one of the world's best pearl stores on route to Xin Tian Di, a stylish nightlife district with many boutiques, pubs and restaurants. Please note that Yuyuan Garden is closed on Mondays, so you will visit Confucius Temple instead.

Jesse was an excellent guide with great English. We got to see a lot throughout the day in Shanghai. She also had a great knowledge at all the stops we had and answered all our questions. She has been the best guide we have had so far in China and we have been on a number of tours. I would give Jesse the highest recommendation.

Mr. Wang and Ms. Jessie are the team of top professionals. Great tour!

Both guide and a chauffeur were very mindful about what each group member wants, were very customer oriented while on duty, which is a pleasure to see. On top of that, they were both interesting interlocutors and were genuinely invested into every conversation with us. If every team of guides had been like that at any destination I was travelling to, I would have been the happiest tourist. The route was planned and adjusted (when needed) extremely well. Mr. Wang was driving safely and comfortably. Jessie was answering all our questions professionally and coherently in cheerful manner, and could elaborate on everything that we were encountering during our tour around Shanghai. If I didn’t praise some aspect of the tour, it’s not because it wasn’t on par with everything aforementioned, it is because I am running out of characters capacity here. I believe I have outlined the key factors that every tourist wants to find on their journey abroad in a guided tour. Firmly recommend this tour.

The best way to see all the highlights in one day

Transport in a high class mini van, exceptional and helpful tour guide with great English speaking skills. We saw more things than mentioned in the tour page and enjoyed the great views. The guide knew where to go and when in order to avoid crowds. The lunch was good, but not great.
