The tour was great. Luke the guide had lots of insights and waited for us because we were running late to the tour. Very much appreciated! It was very informative and Luke made it also challenging and funny with his little quizzes. I would highly recommend this tour.

After a stressfull day in the Office, this was exactly what I needed to relax a bit and submerge into chinese culture. Luke, the Guide, did an excellent Job in telling the stories and creating the right atmosphere on our way through the - sometimes dark and a bit creepy - streets and places. More than once during the two... More

This was my first visit to Shanghai and I have always wanted to explore the French Concession. This tour did not disappoint and I would highly recommend this tour as an introduction to Shanghai. Luke our guide was outstanding!

This tour was very informative and a great way to truly appreciate the rich history in the neighbourhood. The style of story telling by our guide, Luke was quite entertaining. Even my two kids (7 and 10) were very engaged!

I did a private tour of the French Concession which was packed with fascinating information about the history and architecture. The time flew by. And what really impressed me is that afterwards they send you links to further information based on the interests you expressed and books to read. Now that's service!

I've been to Shanghai on four other occasions, and thought I knew almost all there was to know about the french concession, but boy was I wrong. The tour guide Luke, was knowledgeable and humorous, making the tour into a game where you could win sweets. But be aware that you'll have to walk, yes walk, for two hours in... More

Luke was our tour guide and really brought the history of the Bund to life. He clearly has a passion for the history of the city and used engaging stories to take us through colonialism, Japanese invasion and modern day Shanghai. The stories were anchored well with maps and photos from his iPad and references to the visible external and... More

I've been to Shanghai more than a dozen times. I've read guidebooks and have taken numerous tours. This is, by far, the very best. Cozy and intimate, I did not feel I was "herded" around. Also, great stories and anecdotes - exactly what I was looking for. I like the "back stories" and not just the standard, usual facts and... More

We engaged Dan for a half day tour of Shanghai "business" but it was so much more than just business. We wanted to gain a better understanding of how China has become such a powerful and successful economic country in such a short time, and Dan really helped us understand that. He was a great communicator, story teller and easy... More
