Mattias gave lots of historical information about the area we were going to visit before we started the walk and all the “”stops” were very interesting and I learnt such a lot - I did 4 context tours in China and this one was the best. Mattias also shared his knowledge about living in China in general, answering patiently all my questions. I highly recommend this tour as it gives an excellent picture of the rapid changes taking place in Shanghai from many different perspectives and the historical background.
great way to anchor our trip to Shanghai. Bert was clear, engaging and well-informed. found i couldn't go off-subject with him about other aspects of China but his knowledge of architecture and building was terrific. and the kids liked him too. the tour was the perfect amount of walking, mix of buildings. would definitely recommend it.
Walk was structured a little strangely, in reverse almost, though perhaps it's intentional. We saw the future first without knowing anything of the present. Our guide was smart and charming and accommodating.
