Very nice tour! Lots of history of Shanghai along with the food.
Wonderful! Tour guide from England was able to give a resident's view of the city but still appreciate what was new and different to us. Easy to find the starting location and the spots were awesome! We have done many food tours and I liked that this one had PLENTY of food. I also liked sitting down and eating together: some we have done keep you moving so much that you get a bite then walk and never feel like you truly eat. Enough for a full dinner, complete with drinks for the evening. The tour guide pushed us to try new things and gave great context, but made everyone feel comfortable to try what they wanted! You do need to be a little adventurous though: we jumped into interested bites and views right off the bat.
I took two tours with UnTour...the Night Market/Street Food and while I was on it, learned about the Breakfast Tour which I took the next morning. They are expertly planned and every detail is considered...from water to wet naps to a great handout detailing everything we had seen and tasted.
Jamie and Ashley's expertise covered everything...not just the names of dishes but the cultural/local background on the items and the stories of the families who were devoted to the art and craft of food.
The tour really help make the huge city of Shanghai very approachable...okay..bite-size!
Make it you first booking in Shanghai...you will learn so much about the city that it really helps you to fully appreciate the rest of your Shanghai experiences.
What a wonderful experience we had. We were with a small group pf 12 with two guides. The lead guide Jasmin ?? was extremely knowledgeable with a real passion for the local food and culture. We enjoyed a very mixed cross section of foods from various regions of China. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone who loves their food and wants a hands on experience.
fantastic tour! andreas and julia were great fun and we had a brilliant evening. delicious food that we would have been to scared to try without the tour so really glad we did it. lots of delicious food and drink and an entertaining evening. well worth the money
Good real China food a lot!, with stories about the food. Great tour!
excellent tour, knowledgeable guides, great stories, and delicious eats
Excellent! Thomas and Andres made a great team. It was a large group but I liked that and it was organized well enough that it ran smooth. Massive amounts of food, drink and laughs. Highly reccomend. Early in your trip.
Thomas was a fantastic guide - knowledgable, entertaining and caring. Looked after us, took us to places we would never had gone on our own, and we tried things we didn and #39;t even know existed! Hugely recommended way to experience a side of Shanghai you would NEVER see on your own.
Excellent guide, great food, fun fun night! Definitely a highlight of my trip!
My tour guide was Rose and she did a fantastic job introducing our group to the vast range of types of Chinese street food. I highly recommend this experience!
This is the best food tour in China. Great food at several places and great history as part of the tour. Perfect host that knew everyone and spoke perfectly.
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 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.
The Street Food Night tour was very good, very interesting, our guide was exceptional, and the food tastes were excellent, would recommend this tour to any one.
