See Shanghai through the eyes of a local on this 2-hour private guided tour of the city’s areas where normal tours don’t go. Follow your knowledgeable local guide as you wander through Shanghai’s 'nongtangs' -- old districts, lanes and alleyways dating back from the 1920s featuring age-old architecture, unique designs and artwork. With your guide, make a home visit to interact with long-time elderly residents of these 'nongtangs' and gain a deeper understanding of local Shanghai life. Then, explore a local food market and try some Chinese street food (own expense). This is a private tour just for you and your party.

Description:
Have you already made visits to Shanghai’s Bund, Yuyuan Garden and City God Temple, but wish to explore beyond the popular tourist spots? Gain a deeper insight into local Shanghai life as your expert guide takes you on an exclusive tour of the city’s mysterious lanes, hidden alleys and old districts.

On this private tour, find out what makes Shanghai so unique as you discover the city’s lesser-known areas and fascinating off-the-beaten paths. Hear interesting anecdotes and cultural stories and get an unforgettable experience through the eyes of a true local.

Shanghai's courtyard alleyways, known as nongtangs, are back passageways that combine traditional architectural design with modern Western architecture, offering a unique urban atmosphere you will find in very few other places. These nongtangs have been around since the 1920s, and many of their original inhabitants still live there.

Your local Shanghai tour guide, who has over five years of experience in leading tours all over the city, will take you to meet and socialize with these local elderly residents in their homes. Their accounts of the past will give you vivid images of historical times, and their stories of everyday life will show you the influence of Shanghai’s development on their lifestyle.

Local residents also often own small food markets located along these pathways. Visit these hidden stores and wet markets, where true locals shop, and learn how some of the owners make their living. While enjoying this unique Shanghai market experience, taste some local street eats like tea eggs which are eggs boiled with tea and marinade (own expense).
