Why take this tour?

Follow our story-teller on this urban discovery of the "Paris of the East". It is an incredible journey transporting you from hidden lanes, where we uncovered architectural gems, to more frequented streets which can be unrolled for you like magic parchment. We start at the renowned Fuxing Park and head quickly to the former French municipal school building close by. You get some insights about the immense role of the Russians in China while checking out on a beautiful Orthodox Church. Continue with your expert and explore French countryside style villas, Art Deco treasures & some of the most famous Lilong complexes in Shanghai. At the end of your experience with our Historian, our Photographer, our Story-teller, we will ensure that you leave with more anecdotes and knowledge than you ever thought Shanghai could contain!
