Jim was a great guide. I was the only person on the tour but we still had a great time. We ate many local food and Jim also explained about the history of the area, local lifestyles and well as many other interesting topics. We went to places I would not have been able to find on my own, all the customers were locals and it was a refreshing experience! Totally recommended!

Stop scrolling! This is the tour that you must take in Shanghai! This is not just breakfast tour. This is food / history / culture of Shanghai tour! The guide is a native Shanghainese, and he presented food and Shanghai's history in a very interesting and easy ways. I was captivated the whole trip! He took me too places where I would have never found myself - a regular American dude who doesn't speak Mandarin. All the foods were very delicious. Also, he took me to some trendy places where young Shanghai generation frequents like boba and yogurt places as deserts. If you don't take this tour, you are missing out.

I highly recommend this incredible tour! I loved hearing perspectives from Jim, a local Shanghainese person, while trying some amazing food at places I wouldn't have known to try.

I had such a great time with our tour guide Jim, who was super patient with me as I got 15 minutes late due to taking a wrong subway exit. Thank you again!!! He also speaks fluent english and is very knowledgeable and explains everything very clearly. He picked places I would not have gone on my own and I did enjoy them thoroughly. It was also very well organised and believe we had a blast as group!!! Thank you, Jim!

I had the most tasty time doing this tour. The guide was brilliant, gave me so much information about food culture in China, and added some history as well. We ate traditional delicacies and even tasted Chinese tea in a traditional Chinese tea shop, an unforgettable experience. My guide answered all my questions, and we walked the most interesting streets and parks. After the tour, I understood more about Chinese food, China's history, and the fascinating city of Shanghai.
