“One of the best ways to explore Shanghai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

This was one of the highlights of our visit to Shanghai (almost everything was a highlight in this fantastic city!). We took the Night Time Street Eats tour with the family and enjoyed the food, the sights, the tour guide, and the other people on the tour. We were also impressed with the tour guide's demeanor at the start of the tour when one of the people on our tour fainted and was not doing well. My husband who is a doctor, checked her and felt she needed more care so the tour guide called an ambulance while we all waited on the corner and off she went. He kept his calm and then lead the rest of us on our walking tour. We would definitely take another tour if and when we are in Shanghai again - and look for similar tours in other cities we visit!

“MUST DO UnTour in Shanghai!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

DO THIS IN SHANGHAI! On the street eats breakfast tour our you will start in a local park and see the "morning exercises," which is a great bit of local color with flag dancing, Tai Chi, water calligraphy -- so fun and beautiful to experience in and of itself... but what about the food?! If you want an authentic taste of Shanghai, take this or any UnTour! Very informed and friendly English-speaking guides will allow you to experience places and tastes like Xiangyang Food Stalls, Henan Pulled Noodles, Donghu Wet Market (a wet market in China is like a farmer's market with the addition of meat, fish, rice and noodles), Soup Dumplings, A Da Scallion Oil Pancakes and the delicious Lillian's Egg Tarts. Everything is mouthwatering, and you will be in line with the locals who eat breakfast this way every day. I wished I had time to do all of the other food tours and cooking classes this company offered (they also offer jogging tours, maybe to offset the eating). An UnTour is must-do when in Shanghai!

“Exceeded Expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

My husband, college aged son and I went on a "Noodle" tour in Shanghai. Jamie, our guide was stupendous. She was full of information about the culture as well as the cuisine. We went to many "hole in the wall" establishments that we would not have ventured into without some guidance. My son, who was studying Mandarin in Shanghai, was especially impressed. Don't visit Shanghai without taking an "UnTour."

“Perfectly paced Street Eats tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

Carla did an amazing job with this Street Eats tour. We were on the edge of not showing up because of bad weather, (a 3-hour walking tour seemed like a bit of a slog), but she single-handedly turned our attitudes around. We all had a great time and everything was delicious! Not only that, but she assuaged our fears about the safety of the food we were eating, and she went the extra mile after the tour to track down another attraction that she mentioned to us that we wanted to see. 20 years in Shanghai has made Carla very knowledgeable about Shanghai food and history. She turned a rainy day into one of the highlights of our time in Shanghai!

“Dumpling Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2014

A highlight of our visit to Shanghai.
Cannot wait to do the night tour when we return.
Be prepared and don't have breakfast.
