Our Shanghai Pick up Sign" Shanghai Private Tour"

Your first stop is Shanghai Museum, One of China’s most esteemed and acclaimed museums.

The Shanghai Museum houses a comprehensive collection that perfectly showcases the Middle Kingdom’s millennia old history. Spread over five floors, Covers most of the major categories of Chinese art with a collection of 12, 300 pieces in 21 categories of valuable cultural relics, including some donations from private collectors. Amongst the items are bronze, ceramics, jade, ancient calligraphy and seals. The excellent Chinese Minority Nationalities’ Art Gallery displays the arts, crafts and traditional clothing of China’s 55 minority groups.


Then you will take an interesting visit to Yuyuan GardenThe best private garden in Shanghai. It was considered the best garden in southeast China. It enjoyed a history over 400 years since its first establishment by Pan yunduan who had intended to bring happiness and pleasure to his parents and relatives. This garden which is a must for visitors from the foreign countries represents the past of Shanghai. The pavilions, halls, rockeries, ponds and cloisters in the garden all have unique characteristics. Next to the Garden is the most popular bazaar in Shanghai, here you can see a wide range of local street food, souvenirs, etc.


Adjacent to the garden is the Yuyuan Bazaar, Originally there was just a temple (the City God Temple) that was built in the 15th Century. Today the area is also home to a lively market that specializes in traditional Chinese arts and crafts. You can pick some antiques, silk fans, bamboo articles, shell carvings, paintings, or you try some Shanghai Xiao Long Bao (Soup Dumplings), vegetarian buns, chicken soup to experience a little of the Shanghai culture. 


Keep going to the Tianzifang in Taikang Road. It has become an amazing cluster of the trendy and cultural spots. It is an arts and crafts enclave that has developed from a renovated residential area in the French Concession area of Shanghai, China. It comprises a neighborhood of labyrinthine alleyways off Taikang Road, and is therefore also referred to as Taikang Road or Taikang Lu. Tianzifang is known for small craft stores, coffee shops, trendy art studios and narrow alleys. It has become a popular tourist destination in Shanghai, and an example of preservation of local Shikumen architecture, with some similarities to Xintiandi.


Your lunch will be arranged at the local restaurant popular with the local people to stay away from the tourists' meals.

Have a short rest, and your last stop is Jade Buddha Temple: The Jade Buddha Temple, also known as the Shanghai Yufo Temple, is one of the most important Buddhist temples in Shanghai, China. The Jade Buddha Temple was founded in 1882 by Abbot Hui Gen during the reign of Emperor Guang Xu (1875-1908) of the Qing Dynasty and burned down after having been occupied during the 1911 revolution. The temple takes its name from the original two white jade Buddha statues that abbot Hui Gen brought with him from Burma—a sitting statue about 1.95 m (almost 6 1/2 ft) in height and a smaller reclining Buddha.

Today's temple also contains a third, even larger Buddha from Singapore. During the 1911 upheaval, the original jade Buddha statues were removed for safety. Between 1918 and 1928, the Jade Buddha Temple we see today was constructed on Anyuan Lu in the architectural style of the Song Dynasty. Composed of several separate buildings, it is a working temple in which monks live, study and perform rites.


At last drive you back to your hotel in Shanghai.

You will then be transferred to another popular landmark of Shanghai, Nanjing RoadWhen people mention Shanghai's Nanjing Road, they're probably talking about East Nanjing Road, a pedestrian shopping street running for blocks between the northeast corner of People's Square and the Bund. Nanjing Road, 5.5 km in full length, enjoys the reputation as China No. 1 commercial center. It was the earliest commercial street in Shanghai since the city opened to the outside world.On both sides of the street, there are more than 360 malls, department stores, specialized shops, restaurants and cultural and recreational facilities, which receive more than 1.5 million customers everyday.

Two days Shanghai sightseeing tour

We have just come back from a short weekend trip to Shanghai. It was our first visit to the city and we had no idea what to see especially as we were only there for two days. We booked this tour with Shanghai Private Tour based on reviews and I have to say that we were not disappointed. I feel that we have left with a good overview of what the city has to offer its tourists.

I cannot thank our guide Alex enough. To sum it up he was great - incredibly personable, knowledgable and great with my 8 year old daughter - we were a party of 3 adults and one child and all of us genuinely enjoyed the day and were not too overloaded with information or travel. Alex pitched it completely right. Thank you.

The Best Tour of Shanghai with Shanghai Private Tour!

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our private tour with Penny as our guide. Penny knows her city well and her English is excellent. She shared so many interesting facts with us about the city and the Chinese people. Mary guided us through a typical Shanghai dumpling meal and introduced us to a number of dishes. It was her goal to make our trip to shanghai exactly as we wanted and she was extremely flexible. When I needed a rest she always knew a comfortable place to have a break. She was an asset when we shopped as well. Our driver was great throughout the tour. He dropped us off nearby our sightseeing and picked us up promptly when we were done. I highly recommend Shanghai Private Tour and be sure to ask for Mary to have a memorable experience.

Incredible two days personalized Shanghai tour

Booked a tour with Shanghai Private Tour for a personalized two days in Shanghai and from day one to the day of the tour were completely worry free! From day one, Bonnie was incredibly responsive and answered all my questions with ease. Leading up to the day of the tour, I met with Simon for a solo visit and he was so incredibly personal. He kept the same energy throughout the whole day and never showed and ounce of tiredness. Not only that but he was incredibly informative and went above and beyond his role to help me. HIGHLY recommend Shanghai Private Tour and guide Simon

Great two days Shanghai highlights tour

The tour was great for first timer in Shanghai. Our tour guide, Mr. David was doing a great job. He is knowledgeable, professional and friendly, with a great sense of humour. He understood our preferences and tailored the tour accordingly. The view from SWFC was really breathtaking. Yu Garden was great but avoid high seasons period otherwise will be even more crowd and the place is not really huge to cater too many people. I have visited Shanghai before but only this time taking the tour and it was great. We would recommend David to any friends visiting Shanghai.
