Must do tour

Have another 5 stars Jim!
Our family of 4 had a great time exploring Chinese cuisine in the French Concession with you and it was the standout highlight of our first visit to China.
Jim speaks great English and not only found us great food to teach us about and taste but spoke about the changing face of Shanghai for first time visitors.
Hard to pick out single highlights but I now know that you add flavour to noodle broth from the toppings you choose and the tea tasting was a revelation to our taste buds.
Soup Dumplings and Tea!

Must do!
