Our Shanghai Evening Food Tour Reviews

“The evening tour in Shanghai is an absolute 5-star foodie experience that delivers extraordinary value for money. Our excellent English-speaking local guide Libby took our small group (6 people) on a walking tour down side streets and back alleys to small family-run eateries busy with locals – places we would never have discovered by ourselves. With no other foreigners in sight, we were clearly experiencing authentic local dishes we would never have known to order. To cut a long story short, I cannot recommend this tour highly enough.”

“I’ve been living in Shanghai for more than a year and decided to go on this tour with some friends. It was an amazing experience, the food was delicious, the company was super fun and our host was excellent. Mandy was friendly, very helpful and made sure everyone had enough to eat. She went above and beyond to give everyone an exceptional experience, excellent service, and excellent food!”
