    Great tour with our lovely guide Julie. It started at the Urban Planification Exhibition Hall, then we visited the Oriental Pearl Tower, the Bund Tunnel, Shanghai Art Museum and ended up with a trip in the Maglev Magnetic Train that speeded up to 431 km/h - an amazing experience ! Thanks Julie !!!!

    The tour was very divers. Our guide was more than on time and offered us a good view on Shanghai. The only little dissappointment was that the Exhibition Center was closed on Mondays.

    From start to finish this tour showed the fast buildup of Shanghai as we know it today. Our guide was informative and the options were great. Train was super fun!
