We were three hours into the tour when the guide led us down a "quiet street". All of a sudden the police pulled us over and started yelling at us. I do not understand Chinese, but the guide and two other guests did. It got real ugly as the police wanted to fine us for going on that street and... More

Dear Jetlag, Thank you so much for taking the time to review ChinaCycleTours, but can you tell us when you did our bike tour? and who was your guide on the tour? Since in our ChinaCycleTours Safety is always a priority and that`s why our bicycle tours follow bike lanes. And we never got the ticket for bike in Shanghai.... More

I was told to show up at their office at 1 pm to pick up rental bike. Showed up and no one is there and no one answering phone. Very unprofessional and waste of a day.

A great way to enjoy the city center of Shanghai, both old and new and visit places that you will not easily find on your own. Enjoy easy going cycling without having to worry for which way to go - so spend all your time enjoying the surroundings and take pictures. The tour is easy to book online and sharp... More

Was in Shanghai on a business trip that extended over a weekend and needed something fun to do that will combine fun, exercise, culture, site seeing and shopping. So went online to search for a bicycle rental store and found this China Cycle Tours. Called them and arranged for a private bicycle tour over the phone with short notice. Booking... More

We took the afternoon highlights tour. Jen was the leader and Ethan was at the rear. It was my wife and I and a group of seven. Probably too many people for that. Jen was so far ahead that we rarely heard anything she said. It was good to see out of the way places. She even let us walk... More

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

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.
