Shanghai: Oriental Pearl Tower Entry & Huangpu River Cruise
- Valid: 1 day
Upon turning up for the evening I was told that I was the only person doing the tour that evening. I was a bit nervous as I am not the fittest of people, however my guide May was amazing and set just the right pace for me. May gave me the confidence that I needed and before long I was having a great time whizzing through the streets of Shanghai. May's English was excellent and her knowledge of the city and its history were great, giving just the right amount of detail. The length of the tour was just right, covering all of the main areas of the city. As well as the touristy areas it even gave an insight into real Shanghainese life. I highly recommend this tour either travelling as a group or sole and cannot speak highly enough of May and Bike China Tours. The photos that they shared with me afterwards are a lovely reminder of what a great a time I had. A must do tour if you are visiting Shanghai and have a spare evening!
Shanghai proves to be a surprisingly bike friendly city, especially at night when traffic is low. I felt safe and it was a great and fun way of seeing the city at night. My guide, May, was like an Energizer Bunny. She was extremely friendly and gave very good tips on great places where the locals eat. She also took very good photos for us. I also appreciate that she texted me a day prior to the tour to make sure that everything was fine. One of the highlights was definitely the night lights of the skyscrapers from the bund. She took us to a place where we had a great vantage point without the crowd. The tour also helps to give you an idea of night spots you may like to visit again the next days while you're still in Shanghai. Highly recommended and it was a super fun light workout as well.
I was pleasantly surprised and got a great surprise not only on cost but also on service . I truly had an amazing time! It was epic! The tour was well planned and we thoroughly enjoyed the information given by the tour guide to the various historical sites. Guide Jenny is an excellent and professional staff and she is well informed and organized. The sightseeing was interesting and she conducted it in a smooth and leisurely manner. Especially during the tour I have enough time to browse through the food courts for a taste and photo shooting. Xintiandi and Yu Garden bazaar are exquisite. I also enjoyed the skyline on The Bund. Don’t miss it. Great way to experience nightlife in shanghai. Highly recommended! '
Great way to see Shaghai. Getting around on the bike is surprisingly easy and should suit a lot of different people. The guide was very good in interesting and to-the-point descriptions of japanese-, british-, and french concessions that we passed. The info of the tour indicates that you can get off your bike into the jazz club or to shop - but no chance to do that, you actually don’t leave the bike anywhere. Not a problem though, the tour is great fun and they should remove that piece from the tour info.
I had my luck to reserve the evening bike tour! I was a little concerned as I'm not a sporty guy and its been a while since a was on a bicycle (and I'm getting close to my 50's :) ). My luck that the wonderful guide - Mayfer - was so accommodating and kind and kept the pace really nice. It is NOT a very hard tour as Shanghai is fairly flat - no big climbs :) Shanghai is very interesting and beautiful, and such a tour really brings a unique way to explore it! Highly recommended.
