Amazing experience! I live in Shanghai, and had never been to any of the places we went to. It was so nice that Untour took care of reservations for everything so I could just drink and hang out with my friends in a big group without dealing with any mafan or having to pay at each spot. The cocktails were really special (and somehow several shots were thrown into the mix? :) The food on the tour was such a highlight, I've never seen black sesame spicy sauce before. And who doesn't want fried dumplings with craft cocktails?? The guide was really good- had great stories but was chill and took really good care of us. If you want something a little bit different, and an easy way to go out with a group without having to organize anything, this is totally the move. Or, go yourself and find cool hidden gems. I went with a group of colleagues and it was perfect. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone.

Like visiting Seoul but without leaving Shanghai, you can really tell the tour guides are knowledgable and passionate about what they do. Loads of yummy food, and not just the regular standard Korean Fried Chicken. The best part is that you get to explore a lot of different sides of Korean food- night market, dinner, drinking culture, and late night eats, all in one tour! I highly recommend it!

Me and my friend went on this tour and fully enjoyed it- Brian and Jooyoung were equipped with lot of knowledge about not just food but overall Korean facts and you could tell them they took time to prepare the tour :-) They were very nice and patient answering lots of questions so if you are interested in Korean in general I would recommend this tour also! Great night out! Get ready to enjoy all kinds of Korean food :-)
