My friend and I had booked the Half-Day Bike Tour through the 3 concessions of Shanghai. We had Mayfer as our guide and we had an incredible experience. Mayfer did an awesome job preparing and doing the tour. She started with preparing the right size of bicycles and helmets for relatively tall people 185cm and 190cm. The bikes were in a good shape so riding was no problem.

Mayfer showed us a variety of areas and explained the backstory of the concessions. Also. she allowed us to stop from time to time at spots we found interesting. We didnt have to bother with taking pictures as she did all the job and sent me the pictures afterwards.

The trip exprience was so great and beyond our expectations. The service Mayfer provided was perfect. I recommend anyoune who want to explore Shanghai to take this trip. You get to see places you wont see all by yourself and you get also a guide who takes care of everything. We are very satisfied.
