Why People Choose Our Trips:

Meet Your Resident Food Nerds at Lost Plate Food Tours

Designed and Led by Lost Plate.

We  personally curate every trip down to the finest detail (and meal), and all of our trips are led by our team. This means you’ll get an experience that lives up to the hype by a team that is passionate about what we do. It also means we aren’t afraid to push boundaries that other companies can’t, making on-the-fly adjustments and getting off the familiar tourist track to make sure you have nothing less than a great trip.

Food Forward.

A trip isn’t great if you’re not always thinking about your next meal. This is exactly how we design our itineraries – we find the best culinary experiences and meals and then place everything else around it. This means you get the best of everything: the sights and the bites. We can always guarantee that you won’t go hungry – or thirsty. Did we mention meals include beer?

Skip the Tourist Traps.

No shopping. No gimmicky souvenir shops that pay guides commissions. No cheesy performances that attract droves of tourists. We travel with our guests like we travel by ourselves, which means we cut out the crap and provide a truly local and unique experience. We visit sights and attractions that are worth it, which doesn’t always mean you’ll find them in your guidebook.

Discover the Unknown.

Imagine discovering hidden caves in the countryside outside Xian for a night. Exploring the endless tea fields outside Chengdu for an afternoon.  Getting access to invite-only wineries in deep Yunnan canyons. Or taking a 45 minute jeep ride over mountain passes to arrive in what’s known locally as “Heaven on Earth.” We make the extra effort to take you places that you won’t find on any other itineraries. At the end of the day, you’ll be posting Insta pics like no-one else ever has.

Let Us Worry About Everything.

No need to endlessly scroll through lists of hotels. Stop trying to find random blogs that recommend the hole-in-the-wall restaurants. You don’t even need to listen to your friends that have already been. We take care of every detail, every meal, and every pillow. All you need to do is show up and we’ll take care of the rest.

Get Hungry for Adventure.

“My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our week-long adventure through Yunnan with Lost Plate! Our tour guides Brian and Evon were fabulous. It was so nice to take out all the guess work of traveling to a new place and we were able to fully trust them with getting us to great food and places to see. They took us to some spots that we’d never really find on our own. We’d love to do one of their other multi-day trips in the future!”

“Our first time to Yunnan and a great introduction to the best part of China. As ever with Lost Plate Food Tours, there was a well thought through and executed itinerary with some off the beaten places (and dishes) that you’d never find in your own. Highlights included the mountain bike, the cycling around Shaxi, and all of Dali!”

“We had a magical 8-day trip through Yunnan with Lost Plate Food Tours with two families. Our Guides Ruixi and Alison went above and beyond to help us – even before the tour officially started! Overall, something I loved about this trip was how relaxed it was. You didn’t feel you were being rushed from place to place, and there was enough downtime built in that you could chill out. If you wanted to explore, you could go ahead. If you needed some relaxation time in your room, that was fine too. As a food tour primarily, I can say we were not at all disappointed! Something that made this trip special for me included getting to try regional foods that I would never have been aware of without their expertise. The guest houses at each location were fantastic. Beautiful, spacious rooms that are locally owned and operated. I thought the range of activities we got to do really catered to a range of interests. From shopping and market tours to cooking classes, hiking, tie-dyeing and clay cat sculpting, our families were engaged and interested throughout.”

“Everything on this trip was so well curated by Lost Plate: gorgeous, small local yet comfortable guesthouses; excellent choices of local food establishments, some more formal, some street food; terrific & knowledgeable trip leaderswho shared lots of information about the places we visited and the cuisine we ate; a well-thought out pace — plenty of free time (but with suggestions of what to do) and some worthwhile activities as a group; and beautiful Chinese countryside. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Lost Plate and this tour to anyone!”

“My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed the 4-day Lost Plate tour of Chengdu and Leshan. We saw new and unforgettable parts of China and had experiences we never encountered before, like picking and roasting our own tea leaves. Thanks for opening up another side of China to us, Lost Plate!”

“Amazing food at local, hidden restaurants that you probably wouldn’t find yourself. Authentic, delicious food! Great sight-seeing. Stayed in an amazing cave hotel and got to see the terracotta warriors!”

“This was our fifth Lost Plate Tour experience so we are clearly fans! It was a great introduction to Xian, both the local food (some of the best I’ve experienced in China) and local sites – my highlight was cycling around the city wall! Lost Plate is great at finding excellent venues and spots that you’d never find by yourself.”

“As an expat living in China, it was a great way to explore and travel while navigating changing regulations during COVID. There is A LOT of food so come hungry and be prepared to eat! The food was amazing and at local restaurants that I would not have found on my own. They really take you off the typical “tourist path” when it comes to food so you get to eat like the locals and have some of the best versions of each dish in town. The local guides were great at explaining the history of the historic sites we went to and eager to share what they know. Over the 4 days, we saw the Muslim Quarter, the Wild Goose Pagoda, the City wall, Cave Dwellings outside of the city, and the Teracotta warriors. Overall, I am glad I traveled to Xi’an with Lost Plate!”

“The distinctiveness of “Lost Plate” is to combine a trip that’s off the beaten path and extremely delicious local dishes. The trip was very well organized and interesting, I enjoyed riding a bike on the city wall and visiting the Terracotta Warriors. The night in a cave and the bonfire were such a fantastic experience. About food, it’s very difficult to choose my favorite, because the market food tour, the street food tour, the tuk tuk food tour, the local restaurants….all the dishes were delicious and eclectic ! It’s my second trip with Lost Plates and I have never been disappointed. Thank you Lost Plate and see you soon for another trip!”

“My partner and I went on the four day tour of Chengdu. Our excellent guide brought us to a range of authentic eateries that we would never have found ourselves as well as a visit to the pandas, an old tea house, a tea farm and the giant Buddha. Usually tours pad things out but this was enjoyable (and tasty especially if you like it spicy) throughout, thoroughly off the beaten track, and our guide was a joy to spend time with.”
