The Shenzhen"er" explorer day private tour

Take a day to sneak peek China's entrance city with a private guide (visa required)

Explore China! Where nothing is impossible! Take a look at China's entrance point for the world welcoming all international traders and manufacturers to knockoffs bargain hunters or just anyone who would like to take a peek into mainland China to see how it had become a superpower country and its developments. Looking inside deeply on the results of the Peral River Delta, how its has developed into a megacities in just over 30 years.


We start from your hotel lobby and head straight to Lo Wu, the centre suburb of Shenzhen. From there we will head to the high levels to observe the whole city and also to explain to you the city and southern china's developments. Then will head to overseas chinese town for a light lunch and also see some local chinese folk culture villages. Then we will have a choice of heading to windows of the world or to head to the shops for some local bargains.
Focus of the day will be showing you how this city has developed over the past 30 years with stories, facts and figures.

P. S. Tours I give out will be my recommendations however the actual tour will be custom designed to your preference and also depending on weather.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jacky provided our group of 4 with an excellent introduction to the city of Shenzhen, our first visit to mainland China. He provided us with a good understanding of the city through both his personal knowledge as well as the itinerary he assembled for us. Logistically day was very well organised and went smoothly. We would recommend Jacky to anyone looking to visit Shenzhen or Hong Kong.
