I am specialised in organising tailor made tour for foreign people who come to visit Shanghai. Coming to Shanghai is not a problem. Every day a lot of planes and cruise ships bring thousand of people to Shanghai. But getting around in Shanghai might be more difficult. Here live more than 25 million people and most of them do not speak your language. It is not so easy to find your way, that is why I offer tailor made tour programs to get around.
A one-day tour in Puxi part of Shanghai can look like:
