Lee is an excellent guide. His knowledge, enthousiasme, genuine interest in the sustainability of the area and the foodstalls and vendors. His service is fantastic and made this tour the best I have ever experienced, doing these all over the world. Please let this excursion life forever.
Loved it!!!! David was great, learned so much not only about food but also history and culture of Shanghai. This was highlight of our visit to Shanghai.
We had a fantastic evening at the night markets in Shanghai with our guide David! Interesting stories about Chinese food and Shanghai. Lots of food of all kinds of course. Take this tour in the beginning of your trip so you can go back and it more!
THIS was the best thing that we did in Shanghai - we highly recommend. Chahin was a great guide. We couldn't believe that we had spent 3 1/2 hours walking around, tasting, viewing, and enjoying foods at places that we would have NEVER have found otherwise. It was great to share a little history along the way too. We had 6 people in our group plus Chahin - and it was easy walking through the streets. I can't recco enough. We went BACK and ate again at the dumpling place.
Couldn't have asked for a better local food tour experience. Our tour guide, Rose, was wonderful, charming, and absolutely a pleasure to talk to. Even as a Brit, would almost say she has a better knowledge of the Shanghai food culture than even the Shanghainese, though this point is debatable. But anyway, regarding the main point of food - trust me, Rose, or the tour, will not disappoint. There was such a vast variety of dishes, and in such huge servings, that I was close to passing out at the end of it from being so stuffed. I think Rose mentioned there were about 26 dishes to try in total, and at around the fifth dish, she was telling us: Guys, you should only be at about 25 right now. But inside, I was thinking: No... no more. I'm already at 90. So to wrap things up, yes I highly recommend taking this tour. It's completely worth your time and you'll be feeling stuffed and happy as a lark by the end of it.
By the way Rose, if you're reading this, just a small caveat. The subway closes at around 11 - plenty of time to spare from the end of our tour!
Great guide, great food, highly recommended!
Great introduction to night markets. Good value and really valuable experience.
Go hungry, it was amazing! We ate so much good food. And nothing was gross or weird crawfish was the most 'weird', and it isn't.
The tour guides were friendly, knowledgeable expats that speak fluent Chinese.
There was some walking involved between places, which helped with digestion.
No xiao long bao, but it was perfect and authentic.
Very interesting taste and see of foods not usually on a Chinese menu. Guide was excellent - knowledgeable and convivial. Well recommended for a walking experience around Shanghai night markets tasting the unusual.
This tour was the highlight of my Shanghai trip. You see so much more when walking around than from the inside of a taxi. The food was spectacular - I would never have been brave enough to eat street food otherwise. The pace was good - just enough walking between markets to work off the last round of eating! Our tour guide, Mitch, was fantastic. There wasn't a question he couldn't answer. I would and have recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Shanghai, whether it's your first or tenth trip.
