I had a very enjoyable evening the other night on this tour led by Chris and Lauren. The meetup was conveniently near a Metro station in the early evening. Chris explained that with a few quick stops quick, but I never felt rushed we would get to sample some of the varied cuisines of China. My favorites were the roast meat platter, Mango pudding and the chili wontons. A great value.

Make sure you come with an appetite when taking this tour! There is a lot of great food to sample at the 5 or so stops. Jamie was a fantastic guide and provided the group with a lot of information about the various cuisines. I never realized how varied the food is throughout China. Highly recommended!

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.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2017

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

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.
