I took a 4-hour morning tour with Insiders. They picked me up on time from my hotel and my tour guide, Luca, took me to places in Shanghai I probably would not have seen on my own. I enjoyed hearing from him about the history of the city and visiting unusual sites like building "1933", the historic slaughter house turned... More

The most amazing way to see Shanghai. Our driver knew more about Shanghai than you could imagine. He took us to places we had never heard of. My eight year old daughter loved being in the sidecar. If you do one thing in Shanghai, mske it this.

I like to submit I am quite impressed by the professional service concept of your company in all aspects. Yesterday evening my tour members told me they all respected not only the driving ability but as well the involvement of our guides with the local culture.

After 1 year in Shanghai, I had yesterday my best experience in Shanghai. Of course, the weather was perfect, thanks to our guide, who designed for us an excellent tour, and showed me places I didn't know yet. I would love to do it again and again, for sure, already booked for the next visits of my friends and relatives... More

On our last day in Shanghai, we decided to book the Insiders Shanghai tour on a side car. This was probably our absolute favorite experience in China (and we were there almost a month). We booked the 4-hour tour, which I highly recommend. We had time to take a break at a delicious French bakery and chat with our local... More

This was an excellent experience all the way around. Wonderful staff (Luca and Jon) who led us on the tour and drove our sidecars. We brought our children and booked with another family, so we had a group of 7 (3 kids total ages 6,8,9). We took a 2 hour tour through the French Concession area, the bund area near... More

Thank you Sarah for your kind words, it's always a pleasure to get expats on tours as they already have a good knowledge of the city and are quite challenging to satisfy so mission accomplished! I hope we'll have the chance of seeing you in Xi'an, Yunnan or on the SiIlk Road in the future! Have a great Spring! More

This is a "must do" when in Shanghai, a motorcycle sidecar Insiders Tour. You get to see places you would not expect to see such as Insect Markets, Antique Markets and Old Shanghai. An exhilarating few hours in a beautifully restored sidecar, the guys were only to happy to answer all questions and had plenty of interesting stuff to tell... More

Thanks Leonie for your very kind words! Arthur had a great time with you all! I hope we'll see you again on 3 or 4 wheels in Shanghai, Xi'an or on one of our longer expeditions in China's most remote parts! Have a great spring! More

We had 1 day free in Shanghai so we booked insiders in the very last minute. 4 hours drive with Thomas ( head of the company) and it was a great fun!
