I have been living in Shanghai for a few years and had yet to have visitedto this small neighborhood of awesome and authentic Korean restaurants. We had an awesome guide who was ethnically Korean but grew up in Shanghai. She introduced us to all the foods, some history and cultural facts about all the stops and was overall keeping everyone engaged. By the end of the tour, I was extremely full, satisfied and a little tipsy (thanks to the soju). Would have never found this place yet alone know where to go and what to order. Check this out, even if you have been living in Shanghai for a while. I guarantee there will be some things you haven’t tried in you regular Shanghai routine!

We booked this tour to celebrate my husband's birthday with 4 other friends. Kelvin who led the tour was great. We had a fantastic time learning about the history of speakeasies in Shanghai while enjoying delicious cocktails. The tour included an introduction and cocktail making class from the master distiller at Shanghai's own Peddler's gin. Also had delicious noodles and fried dumplings.
I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who would like to see a different side of Shanghai's nightlife, whether a visitor or a long time Shanghailander.

The Shanghai Speakeasy Tour was a great delve into some hidden gems of the SH bar scene. Starting with a shot of Bijou in the street to get us going the evening just got better and better. We had a private Negroni cocktail mixing in collaboration with the guys behind Peddler's Gin before setting off on our walk around the beautiful former French Concession to the two Speakeasys. Great selection of cocktails at both, and special food served at one to boot. We also stopped at an amazing local noodle bar between the two bars to help line our stomachs, and here our tour guide had arranged for pre-bottled cocktails to be delivered there. Kelvin, our tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of SH and the food and drink we were enjoying. Thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommended

I did the Shanghai speakeasy and cocktail tour. What an amazing experience. Despite being in Shanghai for one year, I got to see new secret spots in the city and try amazing drinks. Kelvin , our guide, gave us plenty of information and was super cool to hang out with! Could not recommend this enough!

Kelvin is a fantastic tour guide. I attended with some friends and we had an excellent time. Kelvin is personable and knowledgeable, and he really made it a great tour. UnTour has awesome tours of Shanghai and I look forward to seeing more of the city with them again soon! Do note, the speakeasy you’re includes lots of drinks, so make sure you’re prepared!

Fabulous! Got to see a different part of Shanghai and really dive in to local foods. We visited 6 stops and tried a wide variety of food and drinks. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly and so accommodating of my 2 kids. So fun to share experiences with others from around the world. Try the locusts, delicious!

Paul was a fantastic guide. He takes care of everything and made everything absolutely stress free. I had a great time and enjoyed every food option. I am an avid traveler and typically try to set my own agenda when traveling. But I quickly learned after arriving in China this task would be way more than I've ever encountered compared to other travels. Booking this tour is an absolute must to get the most out of your visit.

A very interesting, informative and tasty tour. Our guides were friendly and knowledgable. K-Town is a lively place that our guides navigated perfectly. We really had a fantastic tour and highly recommend it. We will do some of the other tours.

I attended the Korean food tour in Shanghai with my husband and two other friends. We met 4 other lovely people and were lead by an amazing tour guide,Sylvia.
Food was delicious, alcohol was refreshing. All was traditional Korean.
Sylvia was friendly, spoke great English and Chinese and offered great information about all of the dishes.
I would recommend this trip!

Absolutely loved this tour. It is balanced between tasting at local eateries and a cooking class.

Nyima was our guide today and she was phenomenal. Not only did she explain everything really well she was very personable. People on the tour were so friendly as well.

We started off trying a Jianbing (Chinese crepe) which absolutely delicious. We continued with trying all sorts of dumplings (soup, pan fried, pan fried buns, boiled, steamed). Make sure you don't eat before this tour as you will be full after this tour. You'll learn some history about the city as well as some interesting food facts. The walking is not too strenuous and enough stops allocated.

The cooking class was heaps of fun and we made prawn dumplings. Great teachers there and enjoyed seeing the handiwork once it is cooked. Although mine weren't the prettiest it was nice to see the finished product. You get to enjoy eating it afterwards. You are handed a sheet of the places visited and a couple of recipes.

Highly recommend you do this tour to familiarise yourself with Chinese food if first time here or even if you've been to Shanghai before. When meeting on the tour recommend taking the easy to navigate metro as much quicker than a taxi.
