Our tour guide, who spoke good English, showed us Shanghai's main city sites at night. The cruise was breathtaking. Thanks to our guide.

The boat trip was great although the evening we were in Shanghai it was actually snowing! Therefore the boat which can hold up to 500 people was carrying approximately 20 of us, so we had lots of room to move around and take many pics of the amazing buildings on both sides of the river.

beautiful river cruise - but expect to be on a very crowded boat - tour after river cruise to other sights too quick for international tourists to enjoy.

It was worth trying. I was a solo traveler and it was my first time there. I could spend only a half day for sightseeing so taking this tour was a good idea. The boat was
not a luxurious cruise but it was good enough to understand the city of Shanghai.

The tour was really good. We received a boat ride on the Hungo River and the lights at night were fantastic. We then went to the Bund. We rode on a train down the Bund and watched the lights. The only issue I had was I thought it was a little unprofessional that the tour guide left the tour before we were dropped off at our hotel. Other than that it was a fun tour.

Great trip. Skyline is awesome. Boat was nice. So convienient to have pick up and drop off at our hotel. Didn't really appreciate being hit up for other private tours while we were driving tot the cruise, but it wasn't a big deal. Guide was friendly and informative.

I thought the tour was excellent and it was great to take my family around Shanghai. The tour guides were fantastic and really enthusiastic about their city. They had also been on a separate trip to Hangzhou that day but despite the long day they were still geared up to show us Shanghai at night.

Great nite-time activity. However, the ferry or boat we were on was very crowded and no services and the tour operator doesn't accompany you-- so a bit of confusion. There was nothing else to this tour but a ride around picking up people and dropping off people at hotels and even though I thought the river and sights themselves were awesome, I was a bit disappointed in the tour group stuff. Think it should have included a free drink or a stop somewhere for something else other than people's hotels. Just my opinion, but I was in Shanghai for a week and found other tours were more inclusive. This also was not very much money-- so you get what you pay for

It was nice the tour, but the guide Tom was in a rush, walking fast just like trying to get rid of us. He left us in Nanjing road, we ask him if there was no problem taking a taxi back to the hotel, he said yes, no problem, by the end we had to run fast to take the last subway because taxis wanted to charge us 80 yuans, 100 yuans for a short ride.

The cruise was great. We really enjoyed the views. The Peace Hotel and the Nanjing Rd shopping tram were not very good. Our guide, Tom, rushed us every bit of the way. I did not appreciate his being in such a hurry. He made us feel as if we were a burden and he did not want to be there.

Tour was great. They picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel. We were the only one on the tour. It was pretty short duration for the amount of money. The guide dropped us off at the boat. We would have liked her to travel on the boat with us to talk with us about the sites we were seeing which were amazing at night!

The view was fantastic, however we chose the wrong day .It was a a festival in Shanghai so our schedule was delayed and the trip was late.the guide could not accompany us on the boat and all the ticket booths busy with so many people we had to go to so many entrances before we could board the boat.
I was expecting the tickets to have been purchased in advance, so not a good start.

Local guide was courteous and helpful. A better description on the website would be helpful. Indicate that there are only snacks on board and the length of the cruise. Indicate that being outside is likely. A bit expensive for what it was.
