We did the evening tour with Jim - he arrived with some tasty crispy omelettes and it just got better from there. We got to explore parts of Shanghai we wouldn't find by ourselves, and tried some great food and local beers. Jim was a great guide, really knowledgeable and friendly. This tour is a must!!
Perfect Afternoon Family Tour!

The food was fantastic, our guide was knowledgable and fun, the pace was perfect and the walk through the backstreets gave us a chance to see a unique side of Shanghai. We highly recommend this tour! We might even do it again in the near future.
Exceptional Guide!

I have been on countless food tours around the world. I have also, booked many Shanghai food tours with all the notable companies in Shanghai. However, I would definitely say this tour company and guide, was by far the best. I basically had the same food, as all previous tours in Shanghai (I enjoy the breakfast tours), but different locations within the city. However, what really made this tour my top 5 all time favorite food tours, was the guide. Anyone can tour around a city and eat the typical food of the given city/country. What makes a food tour or any tour memorable and a REAL "experience" is the guide. Jim, my guide fit that "experience". Jim spoke great English, was very informative regarding current affairs relating to China and the history of China, especially pertaining to the area in which the food tour was. I highly recommend this company!
Perfect for an afternoon in Shanghai

From his warm greeting to the end of the day our tour guide Lu provided a wonderful was to experience a part of the city. The meeting place was easy to find and navigate to and from there we began a journey that included personal stories, history and thoughtful navigation. So many good experiences to share but my top two were the Scallion Noodle stop for the best pork and noodles and then an absolutely magical experience at a small Tea Shop. I wouldn't hesitate to book this tour, highly recommended. Thank you Lu!
Great local tour!!

Tour guide Lu was friendly and informative, and was able to design the tour to my tastes. Some great local food at places I never would have gone on my own. The soup dumplings were amazing! Great option for sampling local Shanghai cuisine!
