The tour was so much fun!! We ate so many different and delicious types of food local to Shanghai and from all over China. Olivia was great about adjusting to what we liked and navigating the crowds to make sure we got all of the food and places to sit down! Also explored the temple, which was very interesting. Then finished up with delicious tea. A five star experience for sure!! Highly recommend to anyone visiting Shanghai for the first time or coming back and wanting to see a different area.

Wilson met me with a milk tea in hand before we even reached Qibao - which was a good way to start the tour. While the food was the main point of the tour, it was great to walk around the town and have a leisurely pace to appreciate the different styles of buildings and houses. Wilson gave good insights on the different food stalls we passed by and was easy to talk to when I had questions. We checked out a nearby Buddhist temple and it was very enjoyable for me to learn about the only female Buddha and have help from Wilson on buying incense. Overall this is a tour I would recommend to my friends when they visit Shanghai.

Our tour guide was Wilson. He was very knowledgeable and great to talk to. My sister and I are big foodies and love experiencing the food of the places we travel to so this food tour was perfect for us. During the ride to Qibao, Wilson was great about answering all our questions as it was our first time in Shanghai. Once we got to Qibao, our first stop on the food tour was of course delicious xiao long boa. Wilson then walked us through the streets lined with all types of foods and snacks. What’s great about this private food tour is that it’s catered to you and what you want to try. We were pretty much open to trying most things so as we walked pass the endless food stalls, Wilson would tell us what they were, give us recommendations and asked us if we wanted to try some. We loved that we didn’t have to worry about the language barrier with the vendors, dealing with ordering and paying, and that we could try whatever we wanted. Definitely come hungry for this tour because you will leave stuffed! Wilson also took us to the temple and pagoda, which we enjoyed. Qibao is a great water town to explore and a fun place to try all the different foods Shanghai has to offer. Definitely give this tour a try and we were really happy with our guide, Wilson!

My tour with Queena was fantastic! The town itself is great for a day trip with many rivers. I was able to try any food I wanted, but was also guided by Queena to make sure I was able to try some classics the classics. Make sure to come hungry, because you will leave full! I was able to try much more food than I had thought. It’s exactly the kind of food tasting experience I was looking for. I also really enjoyed seeing the Buddha Temple. Highly recommend anyone visiting Shanghai to take a break and dip in to a bit of Chinese history.

Today we did the 3-hour tour of Qibao with Queena who is a very friendly and enthusiastic guide. She took us through the old Qibao and the Temple. We tried lots of traditional foods (our favorites were the Bamboo Rice and Fried Dumplings) and ended the day with a beautiful tea ceremony. I would highly recommend this tour to everyone.

Had a lovely experience on the Qibao tour with Alana as our tour guide. She was very patient and helpful and kept coaxing us to try new food. She speaks very good English and was very easy to communicate with.

We a wonderful afternoon with Berlin. She introduced us to delicious and varied Chinese street food, as well as Chinese culture. She was very knowledgeable, accommodating and friendly. We would definitely use her as a guide in the future and highly recommend her!

Great tour. Our tour guide, Queena, met us at People's Park @10:30AM. We informed her that we had to get back to our hotel by 3PM because we had to check out. She never rushed us and answered all our questions. This was our 10th and last day in China and we pretty much tasted all the street food that we wanted. She asked us what we were interested to have for lunch and promptly took us to the best place for bao and organ soup in Qibao. My wife and I learned a lot and we really enjoyed this tour. Thank you Queena...

The tour exceed our expectations and was a great experience. We were able to learn about the unique foods available in Shanghai and Qibao and had the opportunity to try multiple different types of food. The tour was customized to the types of food and flavors that we we wanted to try. Alana was a great tour guide and provided a lot of information both about the food, Qibao, and the area. She had a great up beat attitude that made it a pleasure to spend the afternoon with her. We really appreciate the great food, fun experience, and useful information that Alana's tour provided. Thank you! Daniel
