Your private guide will meet you at your desired city center starting point and time. Please note that if you start your tour after 2pm you’ll visit the Bund instead of the Shanghai Confucian Temple and enjoy a river cruise instead of the tea ceremony.
Your first stop is Yu Garden, a famous classical garden. Stroll the area to discover traditional shops, homes, and souvenirs, before you walk to Shanghai Old Town. Along the way stop for “xiaolongbao” soup dumplings, a favorite local delicacy.
Next, visit the 13th-century Shanghai Confucian Temple, once Shanghai’s top university. Sample local teas and learn the benefits of the different varieties at a tea ceremony before your guide accompanies you back to your hotel—or another city center destination if you prefer.
