What to Expect

Greet your guide at the designated meeting point at the time you selected when you booked your tour. As you walk toward the recently restored Xintiandi food area, your guide provides an introduction to the culinary culture of Shanghai.

Over the course of the tour, you’ll sample dumpling soup, spring rolls, candied lotus rice, roasted duck, and many more local specialties. See, too, the bustling Yunnan Road, and cleanse your palate with cups of green and black tea between each stop.

This Shanghai food tour ends on Yunnan Road, where you can keep exploring the city on your own or call it a day.

Great tour, great company, great food

Jim was a pleasure to talk with. He took our small group (5, plus him) to place we'd never have found. The food and the glimpse of life in Shanghai were both enriching and accessible. Best Pork soup dumplings ever!!
