We are in our late 50's and have no experience with motorcycles, so this tour was a bit out of character for us. We had never been to Shanghai before but we were intrigued after reading about Shanghai Sideways here on Tripadvisor.
We are so glad that we took this tour. It was fun, safe, and we saw things we never could have seen any other way during our brief visit to Shanghai. Before booking, I had been concerned about sitting behind the driver and considered whether we might be better off with two drivers so that both of us could sit in a sidecar. Thomas told us that he could provide a second driver but that we would probably have more fun if we only had one. He was right! Bertrand was our driver/tour guide and he did a wonderful job. We told him generally what kind of things we wanted to see and he took it from there.
Highlights included the ferry ride to the other side of the Bund, the Insect Market (like a pet store with thousands of bugs, birds, snakes, and very unusual sights), and cruising through the alleyways and back streets of the city. We also made a good move-- we asked to be dropped off at a shopping area instead of back to the hotel.
I would do this again and give it a very high recommendation.
