You’ll hear illuminating commentary about the city’s history, and because it’s a private tour, you’ll have plenty of time for questions. Upgrade for a private vehicle.

I've done this tour in a day off during a business trip.
It was not the first time for me in Shanghai, but I didn't have time enough in the past to really get to know the city, and the tour had quite the right setup to give me a good overview.
My guide, Martin, was really professional, proficient in English not so obvious in China and very knowledged on the city both the history and the culture.
I've decided to take the public transportation to move around and it worked quite well. Still this city is really crowded.

Apart from this tour, SAT China arranged for me on a short notice basically the night before a day trip to the water village of Zhujiaojiao, unfortunately a meeting I had for the day was cancled. Beautiful! In this second day I've booked a private car and I'm glad that the same guide was available.

To those who want/can spend a bit more, I would recommend a private car, much more relaxing.
I certainly highly recommend the tour!
