    A great way to experience Shanghai cuisine
    I’m so glad I decided to do this tour. Jade was a great guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. We went to places that I would never have gone alone, as I don’t speak Mandarin, and ate some delicious food. Make sure you come hungry! My favourites were the scallion noodles and the soup dumplings, I also really enjoyed the tea shop experience and the food market. I’d definitely recommend this tour

    Great food tour with Jade and Jim
    Excellently organised tour, with freshly cooked and delicious food. We got to try 4 different restaurants plus a tea tasting and some fresh fruits. Jade and Jim were great providing info about the history of the places we walked by and also about how to properly taste the local food. Would recommend 100%

    This was a great way to eat local Shanghai food in local restaurants that we would otherwise not go into. Our host, Luoding took us to a variety of places and looked after us well. I would definitely recommend.

    Delicious food, great walk and kind/knowledgeable tour guide! A must do!
    We had the best time in Shanghai with Jade! From the beginning she was very friendly and knowledgeable. Jade took us to try some delicious food and was super kind to us. Not only did we try delicious food, we also walked through beautiful Shanghai streets and parks, Jade even took some great photos of us at the park! She also took us to an incredible tea place and gave us some delicious fruit to try. Overall an incredible experience due to Jade’s kindness. Highly recommend this experience to anyone that comes to Shanghai! Thanks Jade!

    Fun & Tasty!
    The tour was amazing all around. Patrick was a great host - he was very knowledgeable and considerate of our time. He made sure we always had enough to eat. Although we didn't have any, he checked in with us prior to the tour to confirm any dietary restrictions and let us know he would be able to accommodate if needed. We highly recommend to anyone who is on the fence or thinking of taking the tour! Just do it!

    A Delicious Way to Discover Shanghai
    Jade is an enthusiastic and knowledgeable guide! She took us off the beaten path to show us a wide array of Shanghainese cuisine. It was delicious and delightful way to explore the city. I highly recommend this tour and Jade!

    The best food tour in Shanghai. Don’t miss it!
    I’d give Jade 6 stars out of 5 if I could! She was an amazing tour guide who made our time in Shanghai truly special. Right from the start, Jade was friendly, welcoming, and incredibly knowledgeable about everything in the city—its history, culture, and even the hidden spots. Her professionalism stood out—she was ready to answer any question. Jade’s passion for Shanghai was infectious, and she made sure we were always comfortable and enjoying ourselves. In short, Jade went above and beyond what we expected. If you want a tour guide in Shanghai who will make your visit unforgettable, Jade is the one. Thanks, Jade, for giving us memories we'll cherish forever!

    This is the Shanghai food tour you are looking for! Ask for Patrick!
    This food tour was amazing! We’ve been on a few around the world and this one will be memorable for sure. From the noodles, to the dumplings, to the BBQ (our favorite!) everything was spectacular. We went to places that were off the beaten path that only locals know. Patrick, our guide, was super cool and very knowledgeable about the food and the area. He even helped us with our taxi app after the tour to ensure we got home safely. Be sure to request him - the right guide can make all the difference on these tours!

    The absolute BEST introduction to Shanghai and it's food!
    I recommend a food tour to anyone visiting a city for the first time, especially in a place like China where the cuisine is famous. More than that, Shanghai has its own regional cuisine as well as playing host to many others from around the country and beyond. A food tour sets you up for the rest of the trip. Jim our guide was waiting for us at the meeting spot and we soon set off with the other two members of the tour. We had an amazing array of food from Shanghai and beyond. From home style cuisine, baos, tea, duck, kebabs, fresh fruit, sweets, local Chinese beer, craft beer and Baiju. The variety, portions, and pacing of the trip ensured very satisfied guests, who hadn't eaten so much that they couldn't move, but were definitely not looking for something from 7-11 on the way home. The food, drinks and venues were all superb, scallion oil noodles at the first stop were a revelation. The Muslim kebabs were another highlight, I'd been waiting many years to try these. The egg tarts would give any in Hong Kong a run for their money. And the tea shop was a great interlude. Ultimately however, it was Jim that made the night so memorable. A wealth of knowledge, humour, friendliness and a cool guy. We had a great rapport with him as our small group was open and eager for the experience. But it was great to speak with a local Shanghainese and get insights into Chinese life, culture and traditions. There were plenty of laughs to be had in the chats we had and it felt like an easygoing night with an old friend. Jim's English was on par with any native speaker so communication was a breeze. I also got further recommendations from Jim on WeChat about where else to visit. I had an amazing trip in China. The people were amazing but Jim was the best. It might be Jim's job to be friendly to people but he was an awesome ambassador for Shanghai and China as a whole. The news gives you one image of China but visiting really opens your eyes to an amazing place, with people who we have lots in common with. I would recommend this tour to anyone and I'd even do one again as there are other tour types to choose from such as breakfast tours which are another world of Shanghai food. Thanks Jim, hope to see you again!

    Best way to start your visit in Shanghai!
    An outstanding foodie tour! My daughter and I had the most amazing time- eating delicious food, practicing our mandarin, learning about Chinese culture and history… and sharing many laughs! We took this tour on our first full day in Shanghai and we now have so many food options thanks to Jim! Highly recommend

Enjoyed the night tour so much that I booked the breakfast tour immediately. Because, let's be honest, you can't visit Shanghai without fully sampling all the local culinary delights that are on offer and there are plenty. Also because I have a friend who really recommended I do this particular tour. This time I had Jim show me around and led me to a variety of hidden cafes and street food stalls. I got to try lots of delicious dishes that I would not have been able to access myself. I also had a specific request to try out sheng jian bao and he was able to accommodate this during the tour. I can't thank Jim enough for taking the time to show me around and sharing his knowledge with me. If you are going to book a food tour - let it be this one as you certainly won't get an authentic experience as this elsewhere.

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!

This was a wonderful experience! The food was fantastic and my guide was both knowledgeable and friendly. We even went to a food market, toured the park and a residential area. A good way to see the cultural aspect of Shanghai, all while eating delicious food! Sour milk soup with bread, scallion noodles, soup dumplings, a tea service, pomegranate juice and dessert. Thank you!

Jim was a friendly, serviceminded guide with lots of enthusiasm and knowledge. We were taken to several different spots and tasted lots of different foods, while being told the historical significance of the food and area. Prepare to be stuffed. Would give seven stars if possible.

We had the best time on our tour with Jim. We loved how all the restaurants we visited were local places, and so many of them were hole-in-the-wall places that we’d never be able to find on our own! Jim was so kind and knowledgeable and had so much to share. We loved how the tour also included some history and a taste of local daily life. Jim was generous with his time and expertise, and we had an amazing morning with him. We’d recommend this tour for sure.

I'm so glad I did this tour as I only had one day to explore Shanghai! It was a small group, Jim, our guide, was warm, knowledgeable and passionate about the places and food we tasted! And the food was really divine, great experience and would really do it again if my hubby joined.

Fantastic morning meandering through laneways which I would never have found or ventured down. Jim was an excellent guide ..his obvious love of his hometown
, willingness to give us an insight into his family and his humour enriched our somewhat brief visit to Shanghai. The food was incredible, the tea tasting was just what I had been wanting to experience, the local knowledge and information excellent.
My 16 year old loved it ...there's no higher recommendation!!!
