This tour is a must for anyone that wants to understand Shanghai’s colonial legacy because it not only gives you access to colonial mansions but also explains how the foreign concessions were formed and what impact they had on those that lived there.

During the French Concession Tour you will learn how the Opium Wars and Taiping Rebellion determined the course of Shanghai’s history; marvel at the property empire of Victor Sassoon; find out why you wouldn’t want to be treated in a 1920’s hospital, and take a look at a drug trafficking millionaire’s mansion.

And as if all that wasn’t enough, you also have the option of joining us for a Delicious Chinese Lunch during which you will learn more about colonial gangsters, and find out about China’s ancient tea drinking traditions.
