The acrobatic acts are absolutely fantastic - the best in the world. The only complaint was that it took us two hours after the show to get back to our hotel. Our hotel was the last on the route. Perhaps you could consider sending people back in a private taxi.

A great evening's entertainment. Ideal for tourists travelling alone as I was. The only comment was that the bus arrived at my hotel 1 1/2 hours before the start of the show, so I had to wait alone at the theater whilst other guests were collected.

If you do anything in Shanghai, this is a MUST!! The single most spectacular event you are ever likely to witness.

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.

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.

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 show was nice. The evening tour was rather limited.

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.
