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.
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.
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.
Only got to see the Acrobat show. Don't know what happened to the evening tour. No bund or peoples square at all but we were dropped off at end of evening at French Concession District.
The Chinese acrobats were good. But I didn't enjoy the Shanghai evening tour as much as I had hoped.
I have taken this tour with your company before and it was so much better the last time. The theater on this occasion did not appear to be a very professional establishment. The show itself was OK, the 'motorcycle wall of death' was amazing. Our guide was charming and the tour of Shanghai very good.
The acrobats show was excellent, but the tour itself was not. The guide, Mr. Frank, was obviously eager to finish it as soon as possible, so we went through the Xintiandi area in a few minutes, then drove past the People Park and finally did not make it to the Bund because there was "too much traffic" and, I presume, it would have taken too long. We managed a couple of photos while the car turned around and went back to the hotel. This was not as per your description. We went in a car that was not suited for this purpose (only my wife and I were on the so called "tour"). Also, Xintiandi was supposed to be the last stop in the "tour", so we had a choice to stay there or go to the hotel, but instead they decided to make it the first stop. A very disappointing "tour".

The show was good; however the rest of the tour was quite disappointing. The guide, Frank, spent more time chatting with the driver than being an informative tour guide. We were only allowed to get off the bus once and walk around briefly otherwise the remainder of the time was spent in the van driving around. This tour was definitely NOT worth the money paid.
