We took the tour on our first night in Shanghai and it was actually a great introduction to the city and food. Our guide Topher was super knowledgeable in the different regions of China, the food, history, etc. He also shared some really helpful tips for the rest of our visit. He also did a wonderful job accommodating my vegetarian needs. There's no way I would have experienced food in Shanghai the same way without his help. Highly recommend!

This tour was outstanding and it was so good, I would do it again on my next visit to Shanghai! Topher was absolutely amazing and had so so much knowledge! Do not miss this amazing way to see spots in Shanghai you likely could not find on your own as a tourist.

We absolutely loved this tour! It was the first thing we did in Shanghai and was the perfect introduction to different regional foods in China. Our guide, Paul, was chatty, informative and personable. He navigated restaurants and food stalls with ease, all of which were authentic and unassuming places which we wouldn't have found or tried by ourselves (especially given that we aren't mandarin speakers). All the food was outstanding - we especially loved the Cantonese and Szechuan restaurants. We couldn't recommend this tour enough. Not only that, but Paul offered so many personal recommendations for the rest of our trip from his experience having lived in Shanghai for a number of years and it felt like having a friend in the city (Gabi loved the jianbing stall!!). He also happily answered our thousands of questions about life in Shanghai and China more broadly. We also found the recommendations in the welcome pack super helpful. After our experience on this tour, we are going to go on the UnTour Beijing breakfast tour later in our trip. Thanks so much, Paul!

This was an excellent food tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and was able to take us through not only Shanghai cuisine but foods from other parts of China as well which we never would have discovered otherwise! We had so much great food from classic Hong Kong dishes that we are accustomed to, to amazing Shanghai Xiaolongbao to more crazy dishes like locusts and cured eggs. Come on this tour and you will not be disappointed!
