May W tries very hard, but there are issues. We found May quite forceful and did not always listen. The "office" is 10km out Shanghai, so 10km is required just to cycle back into town through crazy urban traffic. We asked about the French Concession, but without discussion of any extra distance May just shot off cycling 50 metres ahead demanding "just follow me" - adding an extra 20km! By the time we were back in town we were exhausted and abandoned the bikes! Not good. Lunch at Grandmothers was better.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: dear Christopher, Our bike store is in Japanese concession at the inner ring of the city. we are not far from city center due to Shanghai is a metropolis. And we cycle according to the itinerary. by the way, you knee had problem why not inform us before your booking. And we notice your age is almost 65-70 years old. this full day tour is not for aged and unhealthy customer. You are the first customer put off the bikes at the the road and not carry out the tour.

Mayfer was fantastic! She knew the history of Shanghai, took great care of us and orchestrated the tour flawlessly. We could not have been more pleased with the service that she provided, we highly recommend her.

Mayfer was amazingly flexible with us as our cruise arrived in Shanghai 6 hours late. She was still willing to meet with us and maximize our time. She clearly loves her city and was able to give us a good foundation on the city's history and current configuration. We had a good tour and I struggled with a 4 or 5 star rating. I chose 4 because we went out on bikes per her recommendation and I wish we would have had a better idea of how much biking there would be so we could have been more informed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Elizabeth´╝î Your tour price is not included the taxi fee or other transportation fee. You need pay the transportation ticket on your own. Due to your boat is 6 hour late. so I recommend you with bicycle to avoid the rush hour and I free provided the bike helmets, flashinglight. I tried my best to save your time and money while your stay in Shanghai.

The day was rainy, but that did not stop us from having a magical time with Mayfer. We road bikes all over Shanghai, and Mayfer was an upbeat guide who shared the city with us from a perspective not usually available to visitors. Absolutely first rate experience!

Mayfer was the most vibrant, funny, educational and energetic tour guide I have encountered over many years of travel. She made our private tour the highlight of our 3 week holiday.

Mayfer was very informative, friendly & fun & she totally wore us out by taking us on an extended cycling tour. She was also our official photographer on the night. Thanks heaps Mayfer, we had a blast.

Loved this tour! Mayfer was a great guide and lovely to talk to throughout the whole tour. She gave a great overview of the whole city and was more than willing to take photos whenever you wanted. The tour gave me a perfect look at the city as a whole so I could know where to go to spend more time later. Would highly recommend for anyone who likes to cycle.

This tour is a 'must' for anyone moving to Shanghai, and a strong 'should' for the traveler who wants to feel like a local. Mayfer took us on an exciting tour of the city that made us feel like a confident part of the scene, and not bystanders. We learned how to navigate the city and its (wild to the Westerner) traffic, and got a preliminary taste of many parts of the city. Follow up with a walking tour for the detailed history; that doesn't translate well on a bike. Mayfer's English is strong.

Our tour of Shanghai with Mayfer was amazing. Mayfer took us to all three concessions that make up this wonderful city; the Japanese, British and French. She pointed out various architectural sites, gaves us tours through busy shopping districts and took us for an authentic Shanghai lunch. Mayfer spoke to us at length, discovered our interests and focused the tour accordingly. A bike tour through Shanghai is an adventure; one which I highly recommend!!

The tour was informative and riding a bike in the city was fun. My only issue was I asked several weeks before I arrived what the best way from the airport was (I was doing the tour during a layover). I didn't receive a timely response and struggled finding transport. I ended up paying a ridiculous cab fare, and either the driver dropped me off wherever he wanted, or the address was wrong. Very stressful! I recommend offering transportation suggestions, or offer transportation for an additional charge.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the review.Our bike store is in the center ring of the city. It is very convenient for guests reach the store.Obviously there are many taxis,bus and metro line to get to the center of the city also it is very easy to get back to the airport too.1 thing really confused us is we only receive 1 email on 7th Oct 2017 and you never ask about the transportation issue if you asked, pls approve it. If you can approve it we can give u a full refund to insure we provide best service to our guest

Great way to visit Shanghai - on a bike, you become a local. Mayfer changed the itinerary so I saw new sights Japanese, French & British quarters, Arts & Crafts museum, the Pudong district and temples. You need to be comfortable on a bike, but I just followed Mayfer, and it was fine. I highly recommend this tour, especially if you have already visited the city and want to do something different. Mayfer is a great guide - enthusiastic, knowledgeable, friendly and she certainly knows her way around.
