Our Shanghai Breakfast Food Tour Reviews

“We had an excellent and delicious breakfast tour with our guide Benjamin! We got to see local sights like a food market and busy streets full of locals and vendors. Benjamin was recognized by the locals and was very knowledgeable, telling us about things like a local prison that wasn’t on the map. The food was delicious! We liked this tour so much we immediately booked similar tours for our stops in Beijing and Xian. We weren’t disappointed!”

“Lost Plate’s breakfast tour was hands-down the highlight of my stay in Shanghai, and served up so much more than breakfast! Our local English-speaking guide led us on a fascinating and easy walking tour of a busy traditional neighborhood where our small group were the only foreigners in sight. We literally ate shoulder to shoulder with locals going about their daily business, moving from street stalls to a wet market to tiny family-run shops offering one or two local specialties – most of which we would never have known to order ourselves. This tour is an absolute must-do for anyone up for a cultural experience that delivers a real feel for authentic Shanghai food, living and community.”
