Shanghai Highlights Bike Tour Including the Bund and Xintiandi

Shanghai, China

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Recently my daughter and myself were booked to do a four hour bike tour of Shanghai. During the week prior to the tour the operators changed. Unfortunately we had to cancel our bike tour at the last minute as my daughter was sick. The tour operator were so understanding and helpful and even though they were under no obligation to do so they suggested a walking tour the next day instead at no cost. Peter our guide was so knowledgeable and helpful and took us to the French Concession which was the main part of Shanghai that I wanted to see. The tour operator were prepared to do a full 4 hour walk but as we were leaving that day we could only do two hours. I would recommend a biking/walking tour with the tour operator as they are a very honest and reliable company and go out of their way to ensure that you leave Shanghai happy.

Suzhou and Zhouzhuang Water Village Day Trip from Shanghai

Shanghai, China

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

We really enjoyed our day with Chris. He provided additional entertainment in the form of tai chi lessons and played the flute during our lazy cruise down the water ways. I enjoyed learning about how the silk worms are farmed and produce silk, but I didnt really find anything I wanted to buy in the shop. The drive to Suzhou was well worth it as we were given a good view of Shanghai and the surrounding countryside. Zhouzhuang was really beautiful and I would recommend to people staying in Shanghai for a few dayswho have the time . Not quite Venice but the Chinese take on it. The only negative I would have was that the meal could have been in a more traditional Chinese setting. The food was rather bland and I suspect made for Western travellers.
