2-hour private walking tour of the disappearing Shanghai old street

Look behind the glamorous facades of modern Shanghai in this private 2h walking tour through the hidden old town of Shanghai. Experience the buzzing lanes with century old 2-3 story buildings and understand what Shanghai used to be like, a history that's quickly vanishing. Discover ancient wood carvings behind rows of hanging laundry, visit the house where Einstein dined during his stay and and explore numerous other highlights your guidebook doesn't tell you about. And with the help of your guide, you can try traditional snacks at the fresh market, chat with locals about their daily lives and gain insight into the beating heart of this buzzing metropolis.

Update: In February of 2019, the Shanghai Government published the plan to tear down most of the old streets by the end of 2019. They will give way to new high rise living and office buildings. This might be the last opportunity to get a glimpse of Shanghai's original past.
