This was one of the funnest trips I have been on. I was in China for two weeks for work and managed to have a layover in Shanghai for 36 hours. I booked this tour not knowing what to expect. It was the most professional and well thought out tour. Alana my tour guide was so passionate about Chinas vast history and simplified and made it so much more interesting than what I studied in history class. The boat was great and view was unreal. The dinner was so tasty and the conversation with Alana was fun. Alana and her team went above and beyond in securing a car ride for me to the airport the next day and where to go for last minute sight seeing. If you are spending just the night in Shanghai or are in town for a week this is a tour you do not want to miss!

Our tour guide Alana met us at our hotel. She is wonderful. I’ve been lucky to have her before. We went to the Halal dinner with dancing entertainers. Fabulous. Then to the night cruise. Spectacular!! Loved seeing the city from the waterway! Great tour to do if you don’t have a lot of time to spend. You will live it!

Had a wonderful experience with our guide, Snow. Thoroughly enjoyed the river cruise and the stunning lights around the Bund. The dinner was delicious- Snow was very knowledgeable and helped in recommending food- her knowledge of Shanghai and the history was also exceptional and we enjoyed learning about Shanghai and the different architecture! Highly recommend Snow and the Night Cruise experience!

This was the highlight of my Shanghai visit. We had a tantalising meal and tried out traditional dance moves with performers at the restaurant. This was so much fun. We then proceeded to the pier to board the cruise ship. The view from the top deck was memorable with all the iconic buildings of the city lit up. It was breathtaking to say the least. My guide pointed out all the important buildings around the Bund area as we cruised along. She also highlighted interesting facts about the development of Shnghai. For sure, I'd say this is an unforgettable experience for someone like me who loves visiting cities around the world. I had a fantastic time and the view was spectacular. For a complete Shanghai experience, this cruise is a must. I highly recommend this tour for the best experience.
