Topher our tour guide was great! Spoke Mandarin like a local! He took us to neighborhood restaurants were we ate truly like locals. We walked thru neighborhoods that were unique in culture and foods. We were impressed by Topher's knowledge of the area... I highly recommend this tour to anyone that wants to experience a different take of touring Shaghai. Thanks Topher for the experience!

This was a great tour! We booked this for our first day's arrival in Shanghai as a way to help us timeshift. That turned out to be the right idea. Our tour was small, only 5 guests, which made getting around really easy. Each stop on the tour was interesting, and we enjoyed the chance to meet a few other travelers. It definitely helped us acclimate and opened out palette to a range of cool flavors. Highly recommended.

This tour is absolutely worth it. We got terribly lost but our tour guide, Li, was so patient and helped navigate us to meet the group and ensured we still had time to try the amazing food before moving on. The knowledge and passion he has for food and that city is fabulous. Definitely a must do

One of the best street food tours I've been on. Our guide was Andres, who was a great host. The range of food and drinks was wide, and of top quality. A really good night and highly recommended.

The tour was excellent. I tried a lot of different, and very tasty local foods. I was very full at the end. The tour guide was great, very knowledgable. We got a drink at every place we went. The information sheet we were given at the end of the tour is such a bonus. I would recommend this tour for anyone wanting to try or learn more about the local food.

Our guides were knowledgeable about the food we were being served and the methods. We had a great time trying foods we never would have known to try on our own.
