My partner and I went on the first four day tour of Chengdu. Our excellent guide Olivia brought us to a range of authentic eateries that we would never have found ourselves as well as a visit to the pandas, an old tea house, a tea farm and the giant Buddha. Usually tours pad things out but this was enjoyable (and tasty especially if you like it spicy) throughout, thoroughly off the beaten track, and Olivia was a joy to spend time with.

Such a wonderful experience! We had a small group of six, guided around Chengdu by River whose English was excellent. He was very knowledgeable about the region’s food history. We were very full by the end and the final bar was great fun sampling various local wines! Would thoroughly recommend this food tour.

Olivia was such an amazing guide. She brought us to Chengdu's hidden gems, and made local food accessible in a way that would have never been possible without a local guide. We even climbed up stairs, squeezed through a window, and had dinner in the living room of a family apartment! This would never have been possible without Olivia and the Lost Plate Food tours. Highly recommend.

Great experience, we hade a night out in Chengdu and booked a food tour which took us to cool small places with great food. The guide was very friendly and gave the whole tour an extra spice with all the stories of the city, places we went and culture. I can warmly recommend this to anyone visiting Chengdu.

This is a great way to have some fun, and try some food you might otherwise miss. My Father (72) and I signed up. We were joined by young couple from Australia that had also signed up. Our hotel dropped us off at the designated meeting spot, where the English speaking tour guide met us. Each couple hopped into a small motorized mini bus for lack of a better description. These lawnmower powered things are perfect for getting around on this tour, and fit easily on the side streets. Cutting the the chase, we visited 4-5 unique spots and had essentially tapas sized portions of various things; all of which were very good and different. Most memorable was the apartment in an apartment complex that served dumplings. We sat a table in the apartment, ate dumplings, and then exited through a window afterwards. Very exciting! Overall this was alot of fun, and I would recommend.
