          Best foodie Tour for me so far
          Best food tour! Patrick waited for us at the meeting point and briefly explained what to expect. We were a very small group, which I really enjoyed. It was totally pleasant. The food was... awesome. There was Jiangsu-style noodles, tea, barbecue, dumplings and dim sum. Each of the selected restaurants gave us a very friendly welcome. The food tasted so good everywhere... And I was really full afterwards. I can absolutely recommend the tour, I had a wonderful evening with very nice people and good conversations. I would definitely do another tour with Patrick! Thanks for the great experience!

          Great experience, must try when you go to shanghai
          This is amazing tour. It was more than aI expected. This was the best experience on my 2nd day in Shanghai. The food was amazing. The tea are awesome. We got a good tour guide, Jade is really nice, helpful and professional. She told us a lot of thing about Chinese and Shanghai-nese culture. In my opinion the best dish is xiaolongbao and we also got a lot of pictures.

          An absolute highlight
          It was a great and entertaining tour with Jade. Very good food and good conversations about Shanghai's history. In the hot summer temperatures, the different types of beer we tried were an ideal and refreshing way to cool down.

          Perfect Experience
          Myself and my husband had an amazing time on our tour with Jade. It was our first time visiting China from the UK so thought this tour would be a great way to explore the city. Jade was so friendly and gave us great tips and history along the tour aswell as taking us to the amazing food stops. Our highlight was the traditional tea tasting! Would highlight recommend the tour to anyone who is looking to get to know Shanghai, and come with empty bellies as we were soooo full afterwards!

          Best part of our trip
          I did this tour with two friends/colleagues, we were visiting China for a conference. This tour was the highlight of our trip. Our guide easily accommodated my 1 vegetarian and 1 vegan and me (who eats everything), and told us a lot about the history of the neighborhood. I very highly recommend this!

          Worth so much more than you paid for!
          Absolutely unforgettable tour that should be on everyone’s list if you are visiting Shanghai. Jimmy was not only friendly and accommodating, but also extremely knowledgeable in both the local Shanghainese culture/food/society, but also foreign culture/norm so that he can offer a perspective that is educational, interesting and even profound, while still keeping it accessible and fun. Despite being in a Chinese American who has long been exposed to both eastern and western cultures, I was still impressed with Jimmy’s understanding of both. Ask him a random question about any aspect of life in Shanghai and how it compares to the rest of the world, he can share his stories and opinions with you for however long you want! Jimmy you are the best!

          Awesome guide + good food = Great Shanghai experience!
          Patrick was an awesome guide around our food tour in Shanghai. From dumplings to skewers, he was very knowledgeable about the food and Shanghai culture that shaped these. He also gave us a glimpse on Shanghainese life and how it is living in the most populous city in the world. We would definitely recommend this tour to others visiting!

          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%

          Shanghai food highlights
          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!

        We were on a business trip to Shanghai and had a evening to ourselves to explore the local cuisine of China. It was a great luck to find this tour and also our fluent English speaking guide - Jim !
        Jim arrived well ahead of time, with a very comfortable private Buick Van for us. He first took us to French concession area and subsequently to different bylanes of Shanghai City, to help us experience a medley of amazing and mouthwatering local/traditional street food/ local spirit. Before dropping us back to hotel, he took us to a rooftop bar in Julu area to finish our trip with a relaxing drink and some terrific conversation. Btw, Jim is a master conversationist and knows a lot about all the provinces of China. Our conversation ranged from economy to local market, panda, spice-level in different province, technical advancement, global political scenario and automobile industry in China etc. I gained a lot of useful insights from him.
        The food trail covered so much in three and a half hours. It is difficult to have this experience on your own if you don't know the Chinese language and don't get radio taxi so easily without a local sim card. Moreover, some of these eateries don't have a signage or shop name, they are just popular in their neighbourhood :
        1. Traditional noodles with spicy pork, soft tofu, shitake mushroom and peanut sauce
        2. Tea icecreams with tapioca balls and Oreo
        3. Dumplings (3 types - chives, mushroom & pork, only pork), along with small skewers of
        lamb, chicken, squid, glutinous rice, garlic scapes, potato, shitake mushroom, enokitake mushrooms tied with dry tofu.
        4. Pancake-wrap called as Jianping (top dish of all)
        5. Local spirit (made of different qualities of rice) called as Baijiu (white spirit, with 45-55% alcohol) and Fenjiu (wine like spirit, like Spanish Sherry). It is matured in traditional clay pots.
        6. Local fruits like Pamello grapefruit, Jujubi and pomegranate juice.
        7. Desserts - Yang Zhi Gan lu (mango, Pamello, tapioca in coconut milk) and Mang guo Lao Zhu (3 flavours of jelly balls over mango sorbet).

        Overall, a 5 star rating to the trip, and most importantly to Jim !
