My wife and I had a great food tour with Cora. We ate lots of tasty things and because we walked around we were able to get our bearings in Shanghai and ended up coming back to the same area several times.
We even happened upon the dessert stand that sells these amazing marshmallow treats that we ate on the tour. Cora was very fun and knowledgeable. She gave us great ideas of other activities we could do during our stay as well.
We love Lost Plate tours and hope they add one to Guangzhou very soon!
Comprehensive tour! I've been in Shanghai for 3 years and tried some new spots on this tour that I will definitely visit again. Guide was excellent and tour had a good pace, as well.
Top food tour with a top food travel company
Abby provided a well curated food trip of Shanghai incorporating pieces of 'Old Shanghai' (yummy noodles in a shop that has been around for something like 30 years and crossing generations) with new (delicious lotus root and pork powder wonton soup!). She was very knowledgeable and kind, and a pleasure to stroll the streets of the French Concession with. I have done a number of Lost Plate tours and always rate my experience. Thank you!
Tour guide Abbie was brilliant, very knowledgeable and was very friendly, warming and welcoming. The food tour itself was fantastic, great food and value for money. So many hidden spots you would never have known before.
Fantastic introduction to Shanghai Street Food
We recently went on the Street Food tour. Our guide Abby was very knowledgable, giving us lots of insights into the making of traditional food. One of our group was vegetarian and was given alternatives at all venues. We would highly recommend this tour.
