Know More about this tour

Your tour guide and private driver will meet you at your hotel lobby in the evening, and take you directly to the Oriental Pearl Cruise Terminal where you will enjoy a relaxing river cruise ride on the mother river of Shanghai - Huangpu River. Standing on the top deck of the cruise, and have a glimpse of Shanghai’s past and look into the bright future of the city. Your cruise offers a great view of the grand colonial buildings along west side of the Bund, such as the famous Peace hotel, Shanghai Pudong Development Bank and etc.. Turn towards east side, you will see the skyscrapers of shanghai, like Oriental Pearl TV Tower, World Financial Center, and Shanghai Tower (the tallest building in China).

After your lovely cruise ride, follow your tour guide to a local popular Xinjiang restaurant to enjoy a halal dinner on Nanjing Road. Xinjiang cuisine is famous in China, and you must try Dapanji (big plate chicken), lamb kebabs, Xinjiang yogurt, and naan(a kind of Xinjiang pancake). Dapanji is the most famous dish, and it's nicely flavored in spices as well as the chopped potato and green paper. It is usually served with hand stretched noodles. The kebabs are tasty. If you don't like lamb, you can choose chicken wings or other skewers. The yogurt here is quite unique, and it's surely a good match when you have spicy food.

The restaurant offers evening entertainment from 6:30pm to 7:30pm, and there is cultural dancing and belly dancing you can watch. If you are lucky, the dancers will ask you to dance together with them.

After your dinner, your guide will send you back to your hotel. If you wish to be dropped-off in other places in the city, such as Xintiandi, your guide will take you there.

  • It was an amazing night, we enjoy every minute. My family didn't speak English but Alana was so helpful, kind and patient. They were very happy with the cruise and the VIP spot Alana got for us. The restaurant was amazing, all the food was nice even though we ordered some really spicy food. We love the experience, the atmosphere and all the history she shared with us. I highly recommended the tour with her because her attitude is the best to get a really nice experience. Thanks so much to help me to made my family happy. We have such an amazing time! Gracias por la buena energía y por la compañía! Att: Guerrero Family!

  • The tour is great, and the tour guide is friendly and give us more information. Many thanks!

  • We found Vicki to be a charming and knowledgeable hostess. The pick up was perfectly on time and the transport was new and very comfortable. The meal was fantastic and afterwards the cruise was breathtaking. We were delighted with this tour and we recommend Vicki very highly.

  • Wow where do you start. What a great meal, including belly dancing. What a sight the Shanghai skyline is at night on the river cruise. Beats Hong Kong hands down. Our guide Alana was the best. Very warm, friendly, knowledgeable and easily understood. A great night in Shanghai. Highly recommended.

  • I recommend highly this tour. Elena was fantastic, very informative and very efficient. The food was super and the restaurant was great and full of local people, including a dance show. The ride by the river is a must the view is fantastic, the city change at night and the view from the river is completely different. Elena brought her own camera for taking pictures and was communicative and very charming , definitely this tour is a 7 stars. Thanks a lot Elena.

  • This was our first tour in Shanghai as part of multiple tours in various cities in China. Definitely worth it and was the highlight of our visit. The views were spectacular, the ferry was very comfortable and dinner was very nice. We had 2 kids (12 and 9) in tow and they had such a great time and are still talking about it! One of the main reasons our tour was memorable was our tour guide Alana. Very friendly, knowledgeable and went out of her way to make this a great experience. She coordinated our meeting time with us from the previous day so we didn't have to worry about finding her. She showed up at our hotel on time and with a few mementos for us (we travel and tour a lot but have not had this pleasant surprise ever!!). We had mentioned that we were vegetarians in our booking and she had already made plans to accommodate this. We went o tone of the very nice restaurants at the Shanghai tower and had so many great options, we loved it! On the boat ride, she got us great seating and explained all the interesting background about the town and history of how it all came about. We were then dropped off at our hotel at the end of the tour. All in all, a great experience and would definitely recommend it. Thanks Alana for making it extra special!!

  • Our extended family of 8 visited Shanghai on July 3-4 and signed up for the Amazing Shanghai Trip dinner and river cruise. The entire experience was superb and worthy of a 5 star rating. This has been the best tour experience we've had during our extended trip to China. Alana was an excellent guide, selecting a wonderful Halal Chinese restaurant in the Pudong section of the city. We've eaten at a number of good restaurants during our visit to China and this has been among the best. And the weather was perfect for our river cruise after dinner. The lights along the river front are a truly spectacular sight. Alana arranged everything perfectly. She had a comfortable van pick us up at our hotel and take us to the restaurant, then to the cruise terminal and finally back to the hotel. Alana accompanied us throughout and handled all of the details. Her English is excellent and we enjoyed learning about the history and culture of Shanghai. A few of our group have some basic Chinese language skills and enjoyed learning a bit more from Alana. We happily recommend this tour to anyone looking for an enjoyable stress free evening in Shanghai.

  • Tonight we joined Vikki for the evening dinner boat trip which started with a lovely dinner in an authentic Chinese restaurant serving great food. On the way out we were able to try on some authentic hats. The boat by night is well worth doing and much more enjoyable than the day cruise we had experienced yesterday. Our guide Vikki was very attentive and made us feel special taking pictures which were emailed to us. Vikki explained the sights we saw together with other Shanghai and China facts. We would thoroughly recommend you add this trip to your itinerary.Thank you very much.Tracey & John

  • My wife and I arrived in Shanghai for a brief 3 day visit with our son staying in Shanghai - so we had a very short time to experience as much as we could. Alana's tour fit our needs perfectly - her knowledge of Shanghai and excellent English gave us a great night out. We were picked up from our hotel on time and started the evening with Xinjiang cuisine (a new experience for us - very tasty and plentiful) accompanied by live dancing. This set us up really well for the river cruise to follow. The Huangpu river at night with creative lighting on the buildings on both banks made for a spectacularly beautiful cruise. Alana provided interesting background on the buildings and Shanghai's history - and was on hand to take some excellent pictures of us when needed which she sent to us the following day. This was a great way to experience Shanghai at night!

  • Alana, our guide, was wonderful. She gave us many tips on where we should visit, particularly the iconic sites, in Shanghai. She also helped us take pictures of our cruise tour with her own camera. The key highlight of the tour was the dinner at a Xinjiang restaurant. We have never tried Xinjiang cuisine before, hence this is truly a very unique experience for us. We would highly recommend this tour for those who are looking for a quick overview of Shanghai and a great dinner!!
