Què farem?

After we gather at the meeting point, we will walk through local neighborhoods that are usually ignored by tourists. I will show you around "shikumen" apartment complexes and buildings of other architectural styles, while explaining the reasons for their existence, the lifestyle changes of the residents (with a special focus on the Chinese people), and a brief history of Shanghai during and after the concession times.

You will feel the sharp contrast between the past and the present, the rich and the poor, and just what the local life looks like.

The tour lasts about 2 hours with a coffee/bathroom break on the way. If you are interested, you are welcome to stay for another 30 min bonus walk.

Other things to note
This tour is more of an informative one rather than going around perfect places to take selfies. If you need recommendations for places to see, eat, drink, and have fun, I can help you with that too!

Hi! I am Rebecca, a freelance content creator, globetrotter with footprints in 6 continents, 10-year resident of Shanghai, a lover of history, architecture, and local lifestyle.

I was fascinated by the architecture and history since moving to the Former French Concession about 4 years ago. Back then I couldn't find many walking tours in Shanghai unlike in some other countries I've visited. After doing lots of research, I designed a walking tour that looks at the history of the former French Concession through an architectural perspective, with a special focus on "Shikumen" and the lifestyle changes of the Chinese people from the 1870s till now.

I've been running the tour for about 2 years and even the local Shanghainese guests enjoyed it, as it gave them new perspectives of the environment that they grew up with.

This was an awesome experience! I got lucky and received a 1x1 tour. Rebecca was an amazing tour guide and I left feeling like I made a new friend. Her passion for Shanghai’s history and architecture are evident when she’s sharing her knowledge and personal experiences. What I loved most was that she focused on Shanghai’s history, as a whole, rather than a specific era or family. I highly recommend this experience!!

Rebecca‘s tour was amazing. Her told us a lot of stories, guided us the history of Shanghai. She also helped us to get us a taxi to our next destination. I definitely recommend her tour to the AirBnb community! If I can I would book another experience by her :)

This experience was so impeccable! Rebecca has such a fountain of knowledge. I lucked out was able to have a single guided tour, which allowed me to ask a lot of question and each one was answered thoroughly! I really felt the history of Shanghai, and saw it come alive! I would recommend this tour to anyone interested in learning about Shanghai's history. Additionally there was a cute break at a coffee shops she had planned and they were so amazing. I definitely have been back to them since.

Very cool, laid-back tour of residential Shanghai buildings. I highly recommend the extra segment of the tour that Rebecca offers at the end, as that is when you get the fun Shanghai gangster stories!

A journey back to Shanghai of the 1930’s wondering the French concession and its significance in both old and new Shanghai Rebecca is informative and has a deep passion for this area.
