We had an absolutely perfect day with our tour guide - Rogin Luo - who took us for a hike along The Great Wall! Didn't know what to expect and were thrilled to have him as our guide. Very imformative, knowledgable and fun! We go to experience a part of The Great Wall that was unrestored and see all its natural beauty. Got a long history lesson along the way!

After the hike, we all went to lunch at a small place at the bottom of the hill. Located in a house, we ate lunch in the proprietors bedroom! What a hoot! Rogin is the Best of the Best! This tour company delivered for us and we are extremely grateful.

Tour Description
8:00 AM -11:30 AM
Hotel pick-up and first visit Zhujiajiao water town

Our comfortable van will take you to the 200 year old water town - Zhujiajiao, known as the best example of Yangtze river delta life and its old architecture. It is often dubbed as as the Shanghai's Venice. (about 1 hour on the way). Zhujiajiao was once a trading area due to the many canals, which were used to ferry goods in little boats and barges. Boats are still very much part of the charm of the place. Small boats are ubiquitous here, functioning as a nice way to get a view of the town and experience the local life, as they still serve as an important transportation method for local people.

You will be taking the gondolas with our guide on the water way to view the facade of the ancient town from different angles and take some great photos of the swathes of pretty cole flowers in Kezhi Garden. Different from other cursory tours of Zhujiajiao, you will be also uniquely arranged to visit the three hidden gems - Kezhi Yuan (photographing the cole flowers), Qing Dynasty Post Office and Fangsheng Bridge.

11:30 AM - 12:30 AM
Stop at a Shanghai Boutique Tour carefully selected restaurant by the side of the water way, enjoy freshly prepared local food on the second floor where you can view the most interesting and bustling part of the water village.

12:30 AM – 4:00 PM
In the afternoon drive 1 hour to the Shanghai World Financial Center and go up to the 100th floor for the panoramic views of the city. It is the world's 8th tallest building, and the 4th tallest structure in Mainland China. The 100th floor has a viewing gallery that is 55 meters long. It is the second highest observation deck in China. It is higher than the viewing platforms on the Canadian TV Tower (447 meters) and the Dubai Tower (440 meters).

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Visit to the Bund
Next, we will drive you to one of the top scenic spots in Shanghai: the Bund. It is a fantastic walkway along the Huangpu river and across the street you will see some of the most unique and wonderful buildings in older Shanghai. To avoid giving you the most cursory of tours, we will furnish you with a map of the Bund where we have labelled the 17 most representative buildings and a guide to the differing architectures of Shanghai when your trip is confirmed. You will receive an informative pamphlet of photos of Shanghai's new, gleaming skyscrapers, together with the history and classic architecture of its colonial past.
