This tour takes you to some great places. The Shanghai museum has some very interesting exhibits. We had 1.5 hours in there, which was fine for me, but if you are a bit more of a musuem buff then this maybe too short. I would recommend you go there yourself outside of this tour. The rest of this places are interesting but watch out for the hard sell. At the Pearl Museum and the Jade Budda Temple charity shop they will follow you around and push hard for sales. The tour guide will probably offer to take you to the silk factory too. Again, very interesting demonstration, but then its straight in to the hard sell.
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.
