This tour was a great way to meet new people while sampling food from around China. Our guides Patrick and Shanshan were knowledgeable and friendly and took such great care of us. The tour was well-planned and executed. What a fun way to spend an evening! I highly recommend this tour if you’d like to discover cuisine from around China.

I was a bit nervous about doing this tour alone but it ended up being a lot of fun! The food was delicious, the people were all very friendly to talk with and the guides (Patrick and ShanShan) were very informative! Overall a great experience. I will definitely check out some of their other tours.

Hey Vera - I am so glad to hear you had fun on the tour as a solo traveler! Our public tours are designed to be great for both groups and those traveling on their own, and - not to brag - but we really do have the BEST GUESTS ever. As Julia Child said, "People who love to eat are always the best people." We hope you'll join us for another tour in Beijing or Shanghai.

Despite living in Shanghai for +3 years I still learned a lot of new things, as well as tasted some things I didn't before. Christina is an excellent guide, and the group-size of 6 is great too; you get to talk & walk with everyone. You leave with your stomach filled & spirits high.

I enjoyed trying a variety of regional foods. My favorite was the final restaurant, especially when the staff performed a dance! Patrick and Shanshan were friendly and knowledgeable guides, and they worked really hard to ensure that all dietary and drink preferences were provided for. I will definitely join another tour soon!

I really enjoyed this night eats tour. Even though I have lived in Shanghai for 3 years (this is my 4th), I was still introduced to new foods and local experiences. Each stop brought experiences of food from different provinces around China, so it was great to try lots of different foods and find out the backgrounds of each dish. Our guides Patrick and Shanshan were informative, polite and friendly. I had a great time and would highly recommend this tour!
