Really worth it. especially for people to travel to Shanghai for the first time. Beside the sight seeing, the tour guild gave the background story and history of the places. Trust me, hr would fly by before you know it.

Great tour! Dinnah was awesome. You don’t realise that 4,5 hours went by so quickly. Plenty of yummy snack breaks.
