A very nice introduction to Shanghai on our first night in town. The cruise at night was a beautiful view of the city with picturesque views on both sides of the river. The dinner was excellent and our guide was in our hotel lobby with a warm car ready to take us to the cruise at the appointed time. This is a great introductory tour and our very friendly guide, Snow, did a great job of pointing out the different landmarks and points of interest from the cruise and the drive. I would highly recommend this tour when you first arrive but recognize that it’s an introduction to the city, if there is a particular aspect of Shanghai that you wish to dive deep on, I’d recommend finding a tour that focuses on your area of interest.

This was the highlight of my Shanghai visit. We had a tantalising meal and tried out traditional dance moves with performers at the restaurant. This was so much fun. We then proceeded to the pier to board the cruise ship. The view from the top deck was memorable with all the iconic buildings of the city lit up. It was breathtaking to say the least. My guide pointed out all the important buildings around the Bund area as we cruised along. She also highlighted interesting facts about the development of Shnghai. For sure, I'd say this is an unforgettable experience for someone like me who loves visiting cities around the world. I had a fantastic time and the view was spectacular. For a complete Shanghai experience, this cruise is a must. I highly recommend this tour for the best experience.

Our tour and especially tour guide were great. Snow (our guide) took superb care of us making sure we got in the VIP area of the ship and had a great dinner afterwards. Would recommend to anyone and ask for Snow as your guide if you can

After a long journey to Shanghai- this was the perfect way to start our trip. Daisy was the most helpful guide. She was close to my brother and I's age so we talked about many things under the sun. She took us to a DELICIOUS restaurant where we ate the best dim sum. She got us the best seat on the river cruise tour and explained everything so well. We loved spending time with her. She made us feel so special!

Had a wonderful experience with our guide, Snow. Thoroughly enjoyed the river cruise and the stunning lights around the Bund. The dinner was delicious- Snow was very knowledgeable and helped in recommending food- her knowledge of Shanghai and the history was also exceptional and we enjoyed learning about Shanghai and the different architecture! Highly recommend Snow and the Night Cruise experience!

Pretty straightforward tour. Someone picks you up at your hotel, you take a cruise along the river and get dinner. Now for the details...

The cruise itself is very pretty. Shanghai was made for Instagram. You do get a VIP cruise ticket but as I've read in some reviews, it's possible the VIP section is sold out. We were lucky enough there were very few people in the VIP section for our cruise so we got the whole VIP experience. In reality, your guide simply goes to the ticket counter and buys VIP tickets. Honestly, anyone could do it but if you don't speak the language, it would be hard to figure out what to do.

The dinner was really nice. Very nice, high end restaurant in the financial center. You get to order whatever you want. Again, great for Instagram. We got the multi-colored basket of XiaoLongBao (Shanghai Soup Dumplings) and they were amazing! All the food was amazing! But again, you could in theory, just go to the restaurant yourself and order the same things.

So the difference maker is the tour guide. Wilson was great! He's the reason for the 5-star review. He is young and very likeable. He's a Shanghai native so he is able to educate you about the history of Shanghai and where they stand today. He is very nice and goes out of his way to make the tour special for you.

Me and my husband really enjoyed having Kim as our guide. She is very knowledgeable and such a great person! We immediately felt comfortable with her and asked her a lot about history and culture. The tour started with a delicious dinner at one of the most beautiful buildings I’ve ever seen and after that joined the river cruise that showed you the breathtaking views of Shanghai. I highly recommend this tour and don’t forget to ask for Kim as your guide.

I had a great time on this tour! Queena, the guide, she was very kind and lovely. I chose the tour based on the reviews and I was very satisfied with it. They picked me up on the hotel and we started with the cruise. Queena was very sweet and told me a lot about the Chinese history and Shanghai. After the cruise we went to the restaurant Paradise Dinasty, where we had a very delicious dinner. After dinner, they left me at the Yu Garden, on my request. I’m very happy with the tour. I definitely recommend it!

I had a wonderful Shanghai night out with my guide Alana. My tour started with a tasty dinner, and it was my first time to drink Xinjiang Beer! There was a performance by Xinjiang dancers during the dinner time, and I really enjoyed it.

After the dinner, Alana took me to a relaxing cruise ride in the Bund area. I was able to see the beautiful city landmarks on both side of the river like Shanghai Tower, Peace Hotel and etc.. Overall, I had a good time. Thanks Alana!
