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

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!

We went on a half-day "Old Shanghai Exploration Tour". I can highly recommend this tour! The bikes were in good shape and our very helpful and knowledgeable guide led us from one interesting place to another. A great experience!

Hosted by Stella, a guide with China Cycle Tours. Had originally tried to sign up for a Mountain Bike trip, but it wasn't offered on the day I was there. Took a 4-hour guided tour of Shanghai instead. Cycling in Shanghai is NOT for the faint of heart. Lots of traffic, scooters, buses, etc. Stella was simply outstanding in her... More

We would never have been game to weave through the Shanghai traffic on bikes without Claire. We made a plan which parts of town we wanted to ride through and we confidently followed her through back streets and main roads, through markets and olds streets. It is amazing how much information can be imparted in the space of 3 hours.... More

Exciting way to see alot of Shanghai in a short period of time. Li was super-helpful and quick to respond to all my pre-tour e-mail questions and Jun was a wonderful guide and took good care of me.

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.
