This tour was quite literally the highlight of our whole China trip.
Jim was an amazing tour guide with fluent English. We started in the French Concession sipping craft beer to walking around traditional Shanghai trying local food vendors. There was tea tasting, dumplings, vendor food and a surprise Chinese ice-cream at the end. Jim informed us about the history and the culture of Shanghai whilst answering all our questions. We had a small group of only 4 from various countries.
You may think a food tour would be a debatable thing to do in a foreign country, but all the places we were taken to were full of locals and had fresh food, cooked in front of you. The back streets were amazing and we could have taken Jim on the rest of our 17 day stay as a professional tour guide. Just amazing!
If you have one day in Shanghai, this is the tour I would recommend!!
Excellent tour. I will be talking about this night to everyone who will listen for years!
Jim was absolutely the best. This young man loves his culture and sharing it with others. We had the greatest noodles, dumplings and a variety of other foods. The tea ceremony was special for me. We learned a lot about the areas, neighborhoods , culture and food. Loved this tour

Jim was a gracious and personable host. We immediately felt at ease, as if we were being shown around by a friend. All of the food was fantastic and certainly more than we could manage! Come hungry you will not be disappointed!
My family and I had a great late night food tour with Jim and Aaron. Jim not only introduced us to amazing food, tea and craft beers but gave us insights into local culture and history. This is a great way to experience the real Shanghai with the help of a knowledgeable guide. We would not have found these off the beaten track places without a local guide. And Jim's enthusiasm and passion what for he does made it all the more enjoyable. Thank you Jim and Aaron.
I have lived in Shanghai for a few months and always wanted to try the delicious local food but was intimidated by the language barrier and lack of knowledge. My guide, Jim, was very friendly and was very knowledgeable about not only the food, but about architecture and history Shanghai. It was a great experience and will be bring others on this adventure.
Jim was knowledgeable, helpful and took care of everything. He shared his culture and the food eaten by the local Shanghai people . He only took us to family owned , made as you wait , eating spots . You will taste many of the foods you read about , and they were excellent! He is a passionate foodie
I almost didn't go because I was so tired from my flight over...I'm so glad I went. Jim was an excellent guide - it was just me with one other person that evening, and it was such an easy, informative walk through the area due to the small size. I never would have tried the places Jim took us to and it was truly a great new experience for me. Highlights for me were the homemade noodles and also the dumplings at the end of the tour. Just a tip...meet Jim right outside the metro station, not inside.
A great tour on our first night in Shanghai!
We were in Shanghai during the Chinese New Year so a lot of the small local eateries were already closed for the holdays. Jim had done his very best and found alternatives, so we had some great authentic food, tea, as well as a lot of information about Shanghai. Jim was a great guide for this evening, very knowledgeable in everything from food to local history.
We would highly recommed this tour for anyone visiting Shanghai who is interested in local food and local neighborhoods.
Jim was very informative and we had wonderful food - will do again!
