Sorry I bought the deluxe ticket as we only used 1/2 day if it. Buses were great. Routes seemed good and wish we had more time. We were on a cruise with only an overnight.

This ticket made it so easy to get around Shanghai and see all of the sights!! The sightseeing tunnel was maybe the only part that I was disappointed with. The Huangpu River Cruise was great, and although I wouldn't have chosen to do the Jin Mao Tower observation if it wasn't included with my 2-day pass, I'm glad to have done it, even on a overcast day. It must be spectacular on a clear, sunny day!! Very convenient and easy to use!! :

Was so easy for us because we had bought our voucher thru Viator. Great deal.

Great way to see the city. Very enjoyable and reasonably priced. I am disabled and walk with a stick so this was fantastic. If we had had more time we would have purchased a 3rd day so we could hop off at more places. All the bus stops are near main attractions and run frequently- we never had more than 10mins to wait. There were Big B helpers who spoke English at most of the bus stops if you wanted assistance.
On the first day we easily found the Red coloured Big B bus stop near our hotel on the Bund and were taken by the bus to exchange our voucher for tickets, so easy and stress free. N.B. There is another company who do the same sort of bus tour, the bus stops are usually next to each other. You are given ear phones with tickets to listen to the on-board commentary but take your own if you wish. You are also given a map with all stops and attractions on. Very enjoyable way to see the city and hop off to see what you want. Because my mobility/energy levels are bad we knew I would not be able to see/experience everything and had to 'cherry pick' so this was great because we felt that we got a good view of the city without all the walking.
I purchased 48 hour tickets with:
River cruise - fabulous great views, highly recommended. We went in the afternoon but cruise is available until early evening so you can still go after the buses have stopped running.
88 floor tower city view - again fantastic but you need to pick your day/time as the buildings are so tall they can be lost in the clouds. We were lucky and had a clear sunny afternoon. Amazing views.
Bund sight seeing tunnel - goes under the river. I'm unsure how to rate this attraction :-. It is a fast way to get over the river from the Bund instead of using the hop on hop off bus and was very enjoyable because it was so funny. It is like a badly done fair ground ride! However, we had a great time with the other people in the carriage laughing at the effects. If you are having trouble fitting it all in perhaps this is the one to miss.
Over all this was a great purchase, I would highly recommend this way to see the city. My daughter 23 and her boy friend also really enjoyed the buses and will use them when they return to Shanghai with friends.

Buses on all three lines ran frequently. Buses on each line red, green and blue were timed to make connections to buses waiting at the next line. Lots of very friendly and helpful staff.
