Best Free Tours in Shanghai

Here are some of the most popular Free Walking Tours in Shanghai offering an introduction to this huge metropolis with the help of a local guide. With the Free Old Shanghai City Tour, you will get to go on a reverse-time-travel tour from the modern places of Shanghai to the ‘Old City’. You will see Shanghai at its extreme: the very modern parts and the ancient sections. The second most popular tour is the Free French Concession Tour, which introduces to tourists a lesser-known China during the 19th and early 20th centuries, while the country and city started transitioning from the ancient Chinese lifestyle to a more western one. Besides, since this city is one of the world’s biggest Fashion Capitals, you can also book Shanghai Shopping Tours, letting tourists visit and shop in places right in the center of Shanghai. There are also other interesting tours, including Historic Hongkou Tour, North Bund Tour, and Canal Town of Qibao Tour.
