With its picturesque waterways, traditional houses, and dozens of stone bridges, the ancient town of Zhujiajiao has been nicknamed the “Venice of Shanghai.” With a private guide, stroll through 1,700 years of history on a leisurely boat tour of this delightful water town. The visit also covers the spectacular highlights of Shanghai city, including The Bund and Yuyuan Garden. Your guide won't let you miss any important sight and is open to customizing your tour, which includes door-to-door transportation.

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.

No. This particular tour starts in the morning. But you would have time to catch a Shanghai city tour in the afternoon.
