What to Expect

Your tour begins with a front-door pickup in your hotel lobby, where you’ll prepare for an hourlong drive to Zhujiajiao, one of China’s best-preserved water towns. A private guide will lead you on a leisurely stroll down winding lanes and over picturesque stone bridges as you listen to commentary about the historic village. Get your camera ready: Next, you’ll hop aboard a boat for a relaxing canal ride, where you’ll have a front-row view of the town’s quaint traditional houses.

Enjoy a break for lunch in a local restaurant for the chance to sample authentic regional delicacies. Most other tours end there, but you’ll continue the day with a visit to Shanghai city highlights, beginning with the 400-year-old pavilions of Yuyuan Garden.

The action-packed tour concludes at the lively Bund district, where you’ll see staples like Shanghai Tower, home to a high-rise observatory with panoramic views of the city. You'll also have the opportunity to customize the tour with optional add-ons like the resplendent Jade Buddha Temple or the Shanghai Museum, home to an extensive collection of ancient Chinese art.
