Walking through the old neighborhoods of Shanghai. See the remnants of the last shanty towns in the city and get acquainted with this particular episode of Shanghai's history before it disappears due to increasing urbanization.

You have the option of enjoying your breakfast at a famous food street. On weekdays, people throng this place to enjoy a variety of local delicacies, such as egg pancakes, deep-fired dough sticks, rolls of sticky rice and soybean milk. If you opt for an afternoon tour instead, you can avail yourself the opportunity of enjoying the best Shanghai noodles along with various toppings.

Visit the Bird Market, one of the traditional markets in the city. See old Shanghai houses and the Old City Wall along the road to the Confucius Temple. Enjoy a traditional tea ceremony inside the temple premises. Select between 3 to 5 different kinds of tea during the ceremony.

Excellent tour
“Excellent tour with Cindy, precisely what I wanted: see a few authentic places without feeling like a tourist, and being taken care of wonderfully by a local. Also, even after the tour, I could ask Cindy for advice and recommendations and she was very helpful. I highly recommend this tour.”

Loved the tea ceremony at the temple
“Lynn, the tour guide, was amazing! Felt like a relaxing morning walking around and talking to a friend. The insect market was very interesting, but the highlight for me was Confucius Temple and the Tea ceremony - its a must try while in Shanghai.
Definitely recommend the tour!”

Amazing tour and wonderful experience of a lifetime
“In Shanghai, you will see skyscrapers and the Bund, but Shanghai has more to offer. Try Cindy's tour and immerse yourself in cultural quirks like stories about cricket fighting, common people's housings that contrast the skyscrapers, and a tour through the cultural rich Confucius-Temple. While at it, you will eat tremendous, delicious food and receive a memorable tea ceremony. Highly recommended if you want to experience a different Shanghai. Thank you Cindy!”
