This tour is great for new visitors to Chengdu or a fun evening for Chengdu veterans. The guide is exceptional combining cultural, historical, and interesting facts with each different food.

Great food, Brilliant knowledgeable guide, Overall an awesome experience. We visited 6+ places, learned a lot about the food culture and the history of Chengdu. These guys also have a online shop with some infused baijiu that is very tasty. I've just uploaded a couple of photos as part of the experience is the discovery/surprise. Just know that there will be something for everyone.

What a great fun and enjoyable tour. We ate some of the best meals in Chengdu. I would recommend this to all my friends. Xiao Shuang was an excellent guide. She gave us a fun tour of Chengdu and gave us an insight into the history of this beautiful city.

We had an excellent evening tour with Xiao. She tailored the experience to our preferences, was very friendly and informative and spoke fluent English. We learned a lot about Chengdu food culture, including markets and restaurants that we wouldn’t have found on our own. Highly recommended.

I arrived in Chengdu just as Covid-19 restrictions were easing. Most tour companies were not operating because, well, there were no tourists. There were no other people signed up for a tour but Chengdu Food Tours decided to accommodate me and though I paid significantly more than if I was part of a group I appreciated their gesture and it was worth every penny. Xiao Shuang, my guide was superb. Her English was impeccable, her knowledge of the cuisine was first-rate, and her enthusiasm for her work was authentic. The tour itself lasted several hours and included ten dishes, two street food snacks, a walking tour of a farmers (wet) market which included the option to sample several types of baijiu (potent Chinese liquor), several cuts of cooked meat, a rabbit head, and various fruits and peppercorns. I also received a gift bag that included peppercorn cookies and a small bottle of baijiu -- a very nice touch. The food was absolutely delicious. It was a great way to familiarize myself with famous and not-so-famous Sichuan dishes. Every dish was very palatable - incredibly tasty and zesty but not overwhelmingly spicy. Xiao Shuang followed up with a text message to ensure that I had I got back to my hotel. I woke up to another message that included the names of all the dishes we had experienced. She even went above-and-beyond by finding out information for me regarding panda sanctuaries and jazz bars. I would highly recommend this company if Xiao Shuang is an example of the kind of service they provide.
