“The best ways are sideways”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2009

Two hours through sunny shanghai, sitting in the sidecar and on the rear seat of Kenji´s orange bike - one of the highlights of our stay in Shanghai.
A friend of us, living in Shanghai since more than a year, did that trip with Thomas and was so excited that she strongly recommended to do the "sideways" trip.
We called Thomas the day before we wished to take the tour and he gave us an appointment. It was Kenji who picked us up at our meeting point and took us on a more than 2 hours tour all through Shanghai. What shall we say? It was even better than we had expected. Kenji is a very friendly guy, knew a lot of the city and didn´t care that our trip took a little longer than the 2 hours he was booked for. So, at that opportunity, thank you very much, Kenji, for that great experience and the excellent places you lead us to.
As a tribute for the job you did I cut that video that was done during our ride. We hope you like it!
Here´s the link, folks, click and enjoy and, if you come to shanghai, don´t miss to call the sideways guys for a tour!

“Do not miss this - Book it now!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2009

Absolutely the most fantastic day tour I have ever done! Booked only 2 days in advance, Kenji was a superb guide and showed me all the sights of Shanghai from the sidecar of his motorcycle. Knowing an excellent background of the city, as a first time visitor to Shanghai you need someone like him to take you to all the hidden attractions. There is no way that you could cover the amount of ground on foot or with public transport if you didn't know where you were going. It was fantastic! I was raving about it to my friends, and as soon as I arrived in Beijing the next week I managed to book a Beijing Sideways tour to show me the city. Do not miss this - it will be the best money you ever spent!
