In the evening, meet your guide directly at your hotel and set off. First, hop aboard a yacht, and, thanks to your VIP tickets, enjoy prime views of the city’s skyline as you chart the Huangpu River.

City trip to Shanghai
We booked this venue to get most out of our time.
We were picked up ahead of time by our guide Mark. Mark drove us around in a super clean car. We visited all major places in about 3.5 hours. Mark's driving style was superb. There was not one single question Mark was not able to answer.
We recommend this venue to everyone new in the city with very little time.

Hangpu night River Cruise
Dec 2019 • Family
Mark was our guide. He is the best tour guide I have ever had! He contacted me by email prior to our tour, he had a message for me at the hotel, welcoming us to China and letting us know details of our upcoming tour. He called us on the day of the tour to make sure we knew when and where to meet him. He picked us up at our hotel and had a great van for us. There was a driver and Mark the tour guide who accompanied us. Everything was smooth and seemless. Mark is kind and very knowledgeable. His English was perfect. The cruise and the the tour of Shanghai was beautiful and lots of fun for our family of 7!!! The age range was 9-50 in our party and we all had a great time. I highly recommend this tour and MARK!!!! We learned a lot about China and Shanghai!

Awesome river cruise and photography tour
Tom was an extremely knowledgeable and speaks excellent English. Pick-up ahead of time at the hotel with the 45 river cruise as first stop. Amazing to see the lights of the Bund and adjacent Huangpu with the Pearl Tower, Bottle Opener and Shanghai Tower as the highlights. Yuyuan lights and old town as well as the French Concession (lively Xintiandi) by night are a Paradise for photographers and to take in traditional and modern Shanghai. Great tour, great guide and can only recommend!

Amazing way to see Shanghai
Nov 2019 • Business
This was a great experience. Mark was extremely knowledgeable and professional. He gave me lots of information about Shanghai and how things have changed. Old Shanghai is beautiful at night and it was really nice to have a local show you around. The boat cruise was also great and made the city look beautiful. Truly enjoyed the experience.

Beautiful Evening under Lights of Shanghai
Mark was our guide for the evening. We were lucky enough to have amazing weather. We were there during China Intl Import Expo so the light show was updated recently and we understand the laser light show came on more frequently.

Mark took us on the river cruise, took us over to the Pudong side of the river to see the tallest 3 towers and a quick visit to the French Concession.

It was a great tour and Mark did an excellent job giving us an overview of the city.

Nice view of the city light up
Oct 2019
This was a pleasant cruise around the river. We had a VIP suite which avoided the crowds. We were able to see both sides of the river light up and take some great pictures. There was no commentary but we had a native with us that was able to point out the buildings. They did serve tea in the VIP suite and other refreshments were available for purchase.
