Enjoy the hustle and bustle of Shanghai's food markets and kitchens as you sample the delicious local cuisine and wines on this private tasting tour around the city, with all food, drinks, and public transport included. You'll sample a huge variety of Shanghai's local specialities, so be sure to arrive hungrily! Your private tour guide will show you the real Shanghai, and you'll learn how food has shaped the city's cultural identity for over 3000 years. Influenced by its proximity to the East China Sea, much of the local food reflects its identity as a trading port with dishes as diverse as yellow crab and stir-fried bullfrog!

Your private guide will introduce you to delicious morsels of dumplings, and crab-stuffed pastries, grilled oysters and fresh scallops, mandarin fish, ribs that melt in the mouth, and of course delectable desserts to be washed down with the favourite local "yellow wine".
