While the hotel itself doesn’t offer any planned activities, Waldorf Astoria Shanghai on the Bund has teamed up with local tour groups Gray Line and Luxury Concierge. Gray Line offers tours in cities across the globe and, in Shanghai, will take you around town on day trips. As a guest of the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star Waldorf Astoria you may wish to join a half-day tour, which covers Yu Garden, the Bund (where the hotel is located) and the former French Concession. With Luxury Tours, you’ll work with Jonathan Hasson, an Italian who’s been in Shanghai for eight years, and Spencer Dodington, a Texas native who’s been in Shanghai for 16 years and is a connoisseur of the Art Deco design style. Luxury Concierge’s tours cover areas like architecture, the former French Concession, the city’s galleries, the Bund and urban planning.
