Recently my daughter and myself were booked to do a four hour bike tour of Shanghai. During the week prior to the tour the operators changed. Unfortunately we had to cancel our bike tour at the last minute as my daughter was sick. The tour operator were so understanding and helpful and even though they were under no obligation to do so they suggested a walking tour the next day instead at no cost. Peter our guide was so knowledgeable and helpful and took us to the French Concession which was the main part of Shanghai that I wanted to see. The tour operator were prepared to do a full 4 hour walk but as we were leaving that day we could only do two hours. I would recommend a biking/walking tour with the tour operator as they are a very honest and reliable company and go out of their way to ensure that you leave Shanghai happy.

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.

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
