About
Shanghai’s sights are surprisingly far apart, and it’s hard to find an English-speaking taxi driver. On this tour, avoid transportation hassles with a guide who will accompany you on the subway and in taxis to see highlights from the Yuyuan Bazaar to the Bund. You’ll hear illuminating commentary about the city’s history, and because it’s a private tour, you’ll have plenty of time for questions. Upgrade for a private vehicle.

What to expect

Next, travel forward in time with a stroll down the East Nanjing Road shopping street and the Bund, once known as “the Wall Street of the Far East.” See the original HSBC bank building and the historic Peace Hotel. Finish among the skyscrapers of Lujiazui, the city’s financial neighborhood, where you can opt to get a panoramic view from the Shanghai World Financial Center. Your tour ends with return to your hotel.

My group of 10 had an incredibly fun and well planned day in Shanghai, escorted by Olivia Jiang. She was fun, informative and a good sport as we American's marveled at the differences in culture from home. She showed us the highlights but also we experienced something that is known only to the locals. I highly recommend Olivia and this company. We will definitely call on them again!

We made a good decision to rent the car service with chauffeur. Suzhou is incredibly beautiful, Michael our chauffeur brief us some history about this and that building and town to give us an idea what had happened the place we are visiting. he is a good chauffeur and very knowledgeable. we had a great time with Michael. and I felt bad because we were in shanghai on Chinese new year and he didn't get to go for family gathering. but SAT made everything possible even on BIG EVENT like this. Thank you so much SAT and Michael. definitely renting your car and service again if I am visiting china.
