Knowing we would arrive at our hotel at 7:00 a.m. and not be able to get into the room; we booked a 9:30 am tour with CCT to get acquainted with the city and pump some oxygen into our jet lagged muscles. It was a great decision. Jen, our guide, was knowledgable, looked after us on the bikes and also... More

Our guide Jen took us on a fantastic day tour of Shanghai. She was very friendly and considerate and made sure everyone in our group felt safe despite some slightly bonkers driving by the locals. The tour lasted about 5/6 hours and included a great lunch stop. The tour really gives you a feel for the sheer size of Shanghai,... More

I was picked up at the Garden hotel, easily reachable with taxi or Metro line 1 to South Shanxi Station. Among other things we visited the French Concession, incl. the once HQ of Zhou Enlai , tracked through back alleys behind... More

The experience is great! riding a bike thru the very crowded streets of Shanghai is quite and adventure. It might be a bit dangerous sometimes with they way people drive in the city but overall if you stick to the rules its OK. The bicycles we got were not new nor sophisticated but they were comfortable and safe for this... More

I took the one day bike tour of Shanghai with Claire as my guide. It is such an interesting city, I would never have seen so much and learnt so much unless I had taken this tour. Very good value for money. I was a little apprehensive of the traffic but fortunately bikes are given a lot of respect -... More

This tour was great, we saw lots of places in one afternoon we wouldn't have done on foot or public transport. The guide Annie was excellent, very knowledgeable and is an excellent way of seeing the city. I was initially concerned about the traffic but the route we took was not on busy main roads and was absolutely fine. I... More

Can't recommend the Shanghai Highlights tour highly enough. Our tour guides were Anne and Jun and both were great fun and very knowledgeable about Shanghai. We took this tour early in our stay in Shanghai and it was a great overview of the diversity of this amazing and overwhelming city, giving us lots of ideas of places to revisit independently....

This cycle tour was great, Vivian and Claire were excellent guides and showed us exactly what we wanted to see in shanghai, looks scary riding a bike in the city but in fact with these girls it was easy. Great tour!

Staying in Former French Concession

Neighborhood Profile
Former French Concession
While there are technical borders to the area formerly governed by the French in Shanghai, the "French Concession" of today is an amorphous neighborhood that is a favorite of the city's foreign residents. While it is mostly within the Xuhui district, residents will sometimes include parts of Jing'an and Luwan in their mental maps of the Former French Concession. The area seems frozen in time, characterized by quiet, tree-lined avenues, French-style villas, interesting boutiques, lively bars and quaint cafes that are not typical of China. All of these mix and mingle with local life as Chinese markets and lanehouse communities are peppered throughout. Denizens of the Former French Concession can spectate a mahjong game on the street or get their bike checked at a tiny bike repair store on the way to their refurbished apartment tucked away among Chinese family homes.
