What You Can Expect
Learn about the history of this area, which was owned by the French government and served as the center of Catholicism in Shanghai. Hear about the cultural, social and political transitions that took place here, and visit Xin Tian Di, the site of the First Conference of the Communist Party.
Visit a beautiful French-style park and the former residence of Zhou Enlai, the first Premier of the People's Republic of China. As you stroll through streets filled with lovely apartments and villas from the early 1900s -- homes of both locals and many expatriates -- your guide will point out how this area retains its distinct French character.
Veer off the main streets and venture along back alleys for a glimpse of small-town Shanghai life. Reach Shanghai's interesting SOHO area, where you will have the opportunity to rest and explore Tianzifang, an arts and crafts enclave full of designer stores, restaurants and coffee shops. Your tour will end here.

This was a wonderful tour which exceeded our expectations. Our guide Merry is a delightful young lady, who knew her stuff well and seemed to really enjoy sharing it with us. We learned a lot in the most easy and pleasant way and our time with her is now a treasured memory.
This tour was excellent. Our guide was Zoey and she was very knowledgeable and professional. The tour covered many aspects of Shanghai's history and also life in Shanghai today.
I would thoroughly recommend this tour and regard it a highlight of our few days in Shanghai.
Loved this tour. Very worthwhile with a lovely local tour guide who was not only very knowledgeable about the history of the area but also knew the best eating and shopping areas. We highly recommend this tour to any visitors to Shanghai.
The tour was very interesting, well-paced, and we were pleasantly surprised to see how beautiful the French concession area is. Our tour guide, Zoe, was very patient in explaining details and facts about Shanghai history, and we learned a lot that day.
Wonderful! Mary was a great tour guide. She was really fun, sweet and answered all of our questions. We had a wonderful afternoon.
Again this was my second time on this tour and I had to ask the tour guide to show us some specific things that were pointed out on the first tour. The French sports club and the place where the summit talks took place. Once again lacking knowledge
