Overview

The Bund is the cultural section of Shanghai that best represents the blending of ancient and modern influences. This renowned waterfront district is the citys most famous landmark. Youll experience the definition literally with a feeling of space and openness that you wont find anywhere else in Shanghai.

The tour starts with an evening cruise on the Huangpu River, which divides the Bund into two sections, Pu Dong and Pu Xi, which mean east of river and west of river. Local people honor the Huangpu as Mother River, and as you view the lights and spectacle from the deck of your evening cruise, you will understand it.

After the cruise, we will enjoy a walk along the Bund on our way to the historically famous Peace Hotel, which served as the center of Shanghais nightlife in the 1920s and 30s. Then we will take a trolley tour to enjoy the magnificent night view of Nanjing Road.

    The place is beautiful but the company’s numbers are all inactive which makes contacting them, especially as a foreigner quite difficult.

    None other than any other cruise as was thrilled over the many attractions of Shanghai's architecture and modern skyscrapers especially in the limelight of the night with the amazing sparkling neon lights while cruising along the bunks on the top deck of cruise enjoying the cooling breeze and the overwhelmed beauty.

    Tom our guide helped us and entertained us during the trip! He knew a lot about the history of China and Shanghai aswell about the amazing buildings on the bund. We were put together with an American couple, a nice small group!!

    I thought this was a great way to see the Shanghai skyline all lit up at night. It was very crowded on the boat, but I still thought it worthwhile to do.

    The cruise was nice. The boat takes you along the Huangpu river, close enough to take great shots of the lights and buildings. The Bund looks so grand with its lights. No need to rush. Just your tickets and be on time. People were rushing up the boat for god knows why! There is plenty of room. Just go straight to the top deck for good photo shots.

    Uninterested. Socially awkward. Robotic. Impatient. We were happier to roam and explore ourselves...

    So was muss man einmal erlebt haben. Einfach fantastisch!!! Tom, mein junger Tour guide, war sehr aufmerksam, zuvorkommend und sehr nett. Er erzählte mir viele interessante Geschichte über Shanghai. Er kennt sich einfach perfekt in Shanghai aus. Kann nur weiter empfehlen.

    This was well worth doing when in Shanghai. A great way to see the river and its traffic going up and down. The light show/s were just amazing. Being able to seem them on both sides of the river was incredible. Highly recommend

    Il tour serale lungo le acque dello Huangpu ha come valore aggiunto l'effetto del contrasto cromatico le luci dei grattacieli illuminati anche di notte e che si stagliano sullo sfondo nero del cielo di Shanghai. Il tour costa poco e sicuramente lo specchiarsi delle luci sulle acque del fiume e la calma relativa della sera sono di grande effetto emotivo.

    When we booked our tour via phone for 5/3/2019, we were not told that our booking date was scheduled on a Chinese holiday.
    Upon our arrival at our hotel in Shanghai we received a call from Viator stating that a major part of the tour was canceled due to the holiday and that all other guests had re-booked to a following day. Because we only had that night in Shanghai we agreed to take the river cruise part of the tour, without the trolley ride in Shanghai. We were very disappointed but our tour guide Tom Yu made up for the missing part of our tour. He was wonderful in so many ways: stayed by our side on the crowded river cruise, was very informative about every sight we saw, answered all of our questions, took us for a walk where we should have had the trolley ride, had us picked up and taken back to our hotel, did all of this and more even tho what would have been his group tour turned out to be a private tour for just my husband and me. His kindness, smiling attitude and amazing knowledge made us feel comfortable and glad that we did not cancel our tour. He deserves at least 5 stars for his excellence as our tour guide!
    We gave 4 stars only because Viator should have known in advance that only half of the tour would be allowed on this annual holiday in China.
    Tom was the best!!
