When we met tour guide Daniel for the Gangster Tour we were momentarily taken aback by his authentic 1940's getup. Playing the role of a shady British character from the era, he stayed in character throughout the entire tour, which, along with the occasional use of a prop or two, accentuated our enjoyment of night. Although between my significant other and I we've been living in Shanghai a combined 13+ years, this tour was an eye-opening look into Shanghai's criminal past. Little did I know that many of the beautiful old buildings I have lived near in the past were once opium storage depots or former drug baron mansions. Not only will we suggest Newman tours to any visiting family or friends, but also our friends currently living in Shanghai - no matter how long they've already lived here. If you love history and are up for a bit of exercise, you can't beat this for a weekend activity.
