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.

  • Queena was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly with great English and personality - was on time and took us to a very nice local style restaurant where the food was excellent. The driver was punctual and and river cruise was just superb. It was a surprise to be VIP in a special room which made the experience even better. Highly recommend Queena and her company if you are in Shanghai and are looking for a tour.

  • We were two colleagues on a business trip to Shanghai, and had an afternoon available and found this boat trip with Viator. A very charming guide, Alana, picked us up at the Hotel, and took us to a very nice "dumpling" restaurant. In was very interesting to talk to a local girl about the way of life in a fascinating city! The boat trip was amazing, and the Shanghai skyline from the river, at night, with the display of all kinds of colours and lights from amazing buildings, is a must see when visiting! The guide arranged for us to sit outside on the boat, which was great! Thanks a lot! From Petter Slyngstadli.

  • Thanks very much for the very well organized guided tour. Everything was fine from picking up at the hotel to the boat trip, no waiting and VIP entrance, the things Alana told us about Shanghai during the trip to the delicious food place she brought us. We enjoyed the tour and we will recommend to our friends and colleagues.

  • Alana was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, informative and shared many things with us. She loves Shanghai and her enthusiasm made our excursion brilliant. She was on time and very professional. Alana told us the best place to stand on the boat and took us to the best restaurant we have experienced in China. The lamb was cooked to perfection and the beer was cold. Overall we would highly recommend this excursion in Shanghai. She took photos for us to remember. Don't miss this trip.

  • Fantastic night last night. We enjoyed Viator company. The food was great. The guide Queena did a 5-star job! Will recommends to our friends.

  • I rate this tour at 5 Stars for many reasons. My tour guide was very kind and informative. Her English was very very good and I learned a lot about Shanghai and Greater China. She was waiting for me in the lobby of the hotel and the private driver was waiting on us as we walked out of the hotel. As this was a private tour, we were able to enjoy a very nice meal without all of the fuss of a group. From there, we went on the river for a very beautiful sight. I was extremely pleased to have VIP access to avoid all of the crowds. This was a very special treat. From there, I was dropped off at my hotel by the same private driver. This was such a great experience and I recommend it to anyone. I was on my own while traveling on business but will return with my family and book the same tour and request my guide again.

  • Fantastic tour takes in the best of the Shanghai colors at night. Halal meal may turn many off but the food, beer and company were great.

  • Our tour with Vicky was a very enjoyable evening. The dinner was a delicious variety of food. From there we were taken to board the boat for the evening cruise, which was a beautiful show Of extraordinary lights on all the buildings. Vicky was very knowledgeable and gave us all the information. We wanted to know and then some. We enjoyed our evening with her very much, she is a very warm, Considerate person and does her job extremely well, her English is very good and very clear. We would definitely recommend her for any tour she might take. We wish her all the best and thank her very much for a wonderful evening.

  • The tour and the tour guide was amazing and we would recommend anyone going to Shanghai to do this tour
    At the end of the tour our guide also gave us a special gift of our tour
    The dinner was fantastic

  • This story is unbelievable. Paid A478.66 and booked this package expecting a dinner on the boat to celebrate my wife's B day.
    As arranged the guys picked us from the hotel. Took us to people's park which is about 15 minutes away from the hotel. Showed
    the water pond in front of the party head quarters for about 10 minutes and took us to a way side small restaurant for meals. When
    protested the guide said there are no dinners served in the cruise!!!!!We insisted and they dropped us back to the hotel. Next day same time they returned and took us direct to the cruise - ticket per head was about A30 per head.We were disappointed. After cruise the guide requested my phone while in the vehicle created a hot spot and wrote a review which i later read. it said we are happy with the dinner cruise!!! Our dreams of celebrating B day while cruising shattered!!!
