TripAdvisor's #1 Food Experience in the World

Seeing the Terracotta Army built by China’s first emperor may transport you to another world, but nothing really takes you back to the early days of China other than its continuing food culture. Come and taste the flavors that are as ancient as China itself and eat through the Silk Road in a city that boasts one of the oldest food cultures in the world.

Xian Food Tours Led by Local Guides

Experiences Led by Locals.

Only guides from each city can give you a true taste of the area in food and culture, all trained by our founders to ensure a perfect experience. We also work with the community through local producers and partners to ensure you’re getting a real local taste of what each community can do.

Get Fed, Leave Full.

We are not a tasting tour, if you leave hungry or thirsty, we aren’t doing our jobs. Most of our tours feature unlimited food and drinks (beer too!) The best part? You won’t have to worry about what to order or how to communicate with the owners at each stop. Everything we eat is tried and tested, plus you’ll see how it’s made and learn about the families who make it.

Xian Morning Food Tour Beef Pancakes
Xian Evening Food Tour Brewery

Craft Beer & Beverages Included.

The local culinary scene in every city is defined by food and drinks, so we make sure you experience it all! Our evening tours include (unlimited) alcoholic beverages along the way, and at least one stop to sink a glass (or few) of locally produced craft beer. All your bases are covered with us.

Off the Beaten Path.

We visit local neighborhoods where real locals live and eat. You aren’t going to find any other tourists here, or run into other tour groups. Our restaurants are local legends, family-owned and often specialize in only one dish, which means the quality is high and the flavor is even better. These places wouldn’t survive without regulars, that’s how you know it’s good.

5/5

“This was by far and away the best food I had on my entire trip in China! Not only was the food outstanding but all the local places were so accommodating and inviting. Best soup dumplings in my life! And I now am obsessed with the biang biang noodles and I’m desperately trying to find them in New York. My only regret was not going on the tour as soon as I arrived in Xian because I couldn’t revisit the places before my journey home.”

“We absolutely loved our food tour led be the amazing Jessie! THE highlight of our China trip. Before meeting her, we had walked down the main “strip” of the Muslim quarter and it felt very geared towards tourism which Jessie confirmed upon meeting. Instead of spending time there, we visited four out of the way spots that were each gems in their own right. The trip was managed so effectively that each stop was a perfect length with multiple (plentiful) food choices. The tuk tuks are branded and were a fun way to easily get around between the stops. We took our young children and loved experiencing the best Xi’an has to offer with the best tour guide.”

“I have to be honest. Despite the reviews, I went on the tour a little reluctant I wouldn’t like any of the food or even worse, it would make me sick. I was wrong on both counts. Food was absolutely delicious and cooked in safe, clean environments. After some brief introductions, our guide Coco assigned us tuk tuks which whisked us away to a noodle place then barbecue next wontons then a chicken meal and finally a brewery. Each stop was accompanied with an historical, cultural and/or culinary explanation of each dish. We had plenty of time at each stop and way too much food. When they say go on an empty stomach – go on an empty stomach. I honestly would have taken the morning market tour the next day had it been available. This is a don’t miss tour in my opinion.”

“First of all – take this tour, you won’t be sorry. The food we had on this tour was my favorite of our entire trip. Although there are foods you may have tried before, like soup dumplings, the flavors on the past foods you may have tried are no where near the flavors that you’ll find on this tour. The foods are unique and delicious. The tuktuk and unlimited beer was a fun addition to the out of this world food. I also can’t rave enough about our tour guide Jessie. She was my favorite tour guide from our trip. So knowledgeable, so insightful, and she had an amazing spirit/energy. She also pointed out spots in Xian that connected to her upbringing there which really added an amazing personal touch to our tour. Wish I could do another tour with Jessie! And seriously, I’m still dreaming of the amazing food we tried.”

“To say this is a food tour is a bit of an understatement, it is such an enlightening way of seeing how locals around the area live, shop and social, all while eating delicious food. My local friend joined me for the tour and he said he learned something new as well, this is testament to how deep and sophisticated this experience can be.”

“Michelle led us and another traveler through the streets of Xian where we watched and most importantly ate, delicious savory meat pancakes made by locals honing their craft for years. We also sampled delicious breakfast stew, clearly popular based on the long line of locals. The morning tour also included a walk through the muslim market, an attack on all your senses which was utterly fascinating. Not to be missed! We left with full, happy bellies and new experiences and knowledge we could have never found on our own.”
