I truly enjoyed the Chinese Acrobats. The performance was outstanding. I was on the edge of my seat. Because I was the only person to attend the performance that night, the guide only gave me a very mini evening tour of Shanghai, which was a little disappointing.
Lots of fun. How do they do it? Just over an hour long / amazing
The performances were spectacular! This is a must see for anyone in shanghai but I have to say our guide was not so good for the tour after the show. Maybe just book the show and forget the guided tour after the show.
It was breath taking, everyone in the group felt the same way. It started a bit slow but ended with a bang that's for sure.
Great to see such young talented performers.
My friend and l really enjoyed the show and never ceased to be amazed. You are so captivated by the performance that the show is over before you know it. I have been to a number of these shows before but still appreciated every moment. The motorcycle act at the end of the show had to be seen to be believed. Amazing! At the end of the show, the tour takes you for a short trip to the French Concession (Xintiandi). We had already been there so that part of the tour was a bit dull. We probably could have just booked the acrobat show ourselves and made our own way there.
Show is excellent and well worth it. Insufficient time spent on walk around French Concession.
We really enjoyed the show. However, when compared to a previous one we saw in Shanghai about 18 years ago it was a notch lower.

Great show, if you are in China don't miss this! Nice wander through the French concession area on the way home.
This was a really good show and the tour guide was really nice and helpful. Instead of finishing up at Xintiandi, we did this first which was a little disappointing as we would have loved the opportunity to be able to try the cuisine and night life there instead of being sent back to the hotel straight after the show but the show itself was fabulous! Highly recommended.
Best acrobatic show I have ever seen. Better than acrobatic potions of Vegas shows.
I give it three stars because the show is fabulous and you shouldn't miss it. However, I don't think booking it through the tour added any value. The seats we were given were in the last two rows. We cheated and moved up to the 5th row or so since there were open seats. The evening part of the tour isn't really a tour at all - they just pretty much take you back to your hotel. So definitely see the show but check the prices and see if you can book it directly for cheaper. Also, we saw another group of Chinese acrobats a couple nights later who were also really good, the ones in the round theater - either one is a great experience - don't leave shanghai without doing one of them.
This was great! I went to the fancier north city arena before and preferred this one. Show was fabulous, low level production values actually added to the experience! Guide was also great. Very pleasant and friendly. Also helped us order food after. One quibble - van was uncomfortable. Very old and no suspension. Fine for short drive but wouldn't fancy a longer stint in it. Not suitable for anyone with back problems!!! Overall a good night and recommend it strongly.
We enjoyed the acrobatic show, but we only went to Xin Tian Di. We did not to go to the Bund and Peoples Square after the show. The website mentions these 2 places to see, but I forgot to print the itinerary, so I could show the guide what's next of things to see. But she should know. She seemed in a hurry, and it was in my mind that we are missing these 2 places to see after the show, but she seemed as if Xin Tian Di was the only place to go, so I just let her take us where she wanted for us to see.
The Acrobats were very good. The rest of the tour was NOT worth the time.
Something to do in Shanghai - the evening tour was quite informative - but they tried to make us drive for 40 mins back to our hotel (in order to drop off another person). Instead we jumped out and got a taxi back to our hotel which cost about $4!
The Acrobats are outstanding. It is convenient to have someone pick you up and return you to your hotel, but there is little more to the Evening Tour.
I was the only person, which was disappointing, as a business traveller I was looking forward to meeting new people. The tour operator was later due to traffic, no problem I understand, but this made the driver mad and the fought oin the car the whole time. The Evening Tour conisisted in driving in traffic past things with one word comments in english "peoples square" with no explaination or other interesting facts. I got the impression that she was bored as she just texted the whole time. The Show was excellent!!! but I had no driver waiting when it was over. Had to wait 1 hour to get a ride only after I kept calling her. This is garbage!!!!
The Acrobats' performance must not be missed. However there was no evening tour of Shanghai aside from the trip from the hotel to the venue and back. A two minute glance at Xintiandi was all that was offered.
