This is a really nice experience. The city lights are amazing, and well worth seeing from the river.
Nanjing Road was also nice to see in the night.
We were pleasantly surprised to have a private tour for the 4 of us! Rita (our tour guide) was friendly, informative, organized, and easy to understand. The river cruise was full of breath-taking views, and the walk down Nanjing Street was a great introduction to Shanghai. My father-in-law was having trouble walking, and Rita was flexible in her plans to include a trolley ride down Nanjing street so he could enjoy everything. I highly recommend this tour for anyone who wants to unique Shanghai experience!
This tour is ok. It's nothing you couldn't do yourself it just saves you the time of having to organise it. The trip down Nanjing Road (the main shopping street) on the siteseeing train is good fun. Its good to see all of the neon signs lit up at night. A night time Huangpu river cruise is a must for anyone visiting Shanghai. The view on both sides of the river is very different, with the colonial buildings on one side and the flashing lights of the financial center on the other. If you like being shuttled around this is a great tour to do. If you are a bit more of an independant traveller easy to do this yourself.
Seeing the boats lit up on the river was nice but the boat was just crammed with people. Our tour had only a total of 5 people but combining many, many other tour groups made it a bit overwhelming. Riding the little tram going down the Nanjing center is pretty pathetic. Price is way too high for this tour.
While the lights and skyline of Shanghai are lovely from the Bund, this tour experience was quite awful. We hope it was just the Expo crowds, but we were abandoned by our guide in the boat cruise queue for 40 uncomfortable minutes amidst a throng of drunken, shoving and rude non-English speaking tourists. It was impossible to hear the English narration on the cruise, so we have no idea what we were seeing. While the Nanjing Road trolley ride was somewhat better we were also accosted constantly by street vendors. We wish our guide would have a) protected us from the vendors more and b) provided some actual guide info/helped us understand what we were seeing. And most importantly, please do not EVER abandon a group on the street alone -- we paid for a service we did not receive.
