“French Concession Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2014

We had a really great tour of the French Concession area of Shanghai. The tour was well planned out and our tour guide was knowledgable and charismatic. The tour went at a good pace and even after living in Shanghai for 4 years I learned many new things. I highly recommend this tour and our great tour guide Claire !

“Gangster Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

We had a fabulous morning with Evan learning about Shanghai's opium-filled gangster past! I've lived in the Former French Concession for over a year and learned tons of interesting and new things, and saw many beautiful buildings and points of historical interest that I would not have found otherwise! The tour was also very much enjoyed by my companions who were visiting the city. Our guide was super-knowledgeable and it was a great way to learn more about this fabulous city and to get a sense of 20th century Chinese history. Highly recommend!!

“The Bund”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2014

It was very interesting to visit the Bund with a guide, we could learn more about the historical aspect of the place and not only visit the beautiful sightseeing and buildings: I really recommend it, otherwise you're missing something. Our guide, Claire, was very enthusiastic and she had a lot to say, many little facts that we wouldn't have known if we had done the visit by ourselves. It's too bad we didn't have time to do the other tours, otherwise we would have done it with Newman Tours !

“French Concession Walk Shanghai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2014

We have had the chance to join one of the various walks offered by Newman Tours while in Shanghai. On a sunny day with a great guide (Claire) we strolled through the French Concession. Various new and partly hidden sights were presented. Especially those hidden gems you would not find by yourself made the tour a great experience. Claire did a wonderful job regarding interacting with the group and fostering an open dialogue. Moreover, the various historical stories connected to the landmarks were brought to life.
The tour was convenient to book. The prior and follow-up information supply was very thoughtful. Everything worked out great and we have had a wonderful walk through the former French Concessions. Thus, we would recommend to join a Newman Tour.
