This tour was a huge disappointment. We neglected to research this tour and paid for a first class show but this one was third rate.

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.

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.

We will not recommend this tour.
Based on the reviews, I had purchased this tour, however we were extremely disappointed with the tour. It was poorly organized and managed. We feel cheated as we trusted Viator to make our two days in Shaghai memorable. Due to poorly managed and unreliable travel agency Viator hired, Our vacation was ruined.
Acrobat Show is average- good effort by the performers but could have been held in a better theater. We reached the show 20 minutes late which was almost missing half the show. After the show, we were to go for the drive and see Shanghai in the evening. Unfortunately our guide really did not have much knowledge about the city. We would have been okay with that but to make the evening worse, Our guide and the driver got into an argument at the first stop and we ended up waiting in rain, getting drenched in our evening clothes while the driver refused to come pick us up . We walked in circles with the guide to find him. What a nightmare!
I will not recommend Viator after this experience and for ruining our vacation in Shanghai.

The tour was composed by the show and an "evening tour. We went to the show (a good one), and then ten minutes (!) to walk in the French Concession. After that, back to the hotels. No view of People
Square, and no view of the Bund, that is, no "evening tour". It is true that the weather was not the best, but he guide (Mrs.Jennifer) did not provide any information about the city , but kept all the time offering her cell private phone to make another tours and send massages to the hotels. In summay, a disappointing experience. We have made several tours with Viator and the experience was always very good. This particular one was a bad surprise.

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.
