What to expect
Immerse yourself in the amazing culinary culture of Shanghai during this small-group food tour to taste some of the city’s top food specialties. Whether you’re a full-on foodie or simply looking for a unique way to experience Chinese culture, this kid-friendly food tour is a great option. Meet your food guide in the morning at Xiangyang Park, taking a half hour to investigate this picturesque green space before digging into your food crawl. Observe tai chi masters and water calligraphers going about their daily rituals, learning about these fascinating practices from your guide. Then get ready to start your food adventure. Head to your first street stall nearby, taking a moment to absorb the sounds and smells as a mouthwatering Chinese dish is prepared and served right out of the wok. You’ll have a chance to enjoy a selection of savory breakfast pancakes, fried dumplings and fresh-pulled noodles during your exploration. Continue next to a nearby wet market, where you’ll stroll among vendors hawking a variety of fresh produce, fish, and meat. Make sure to stay hungry, because your next stop will offer a chance to sample xiaolongbao, Shanghai's famous soup dumpling. Watch them steam in bamboo baskets before grabbing one, carefully piercing its skin, slurping out the delicious soup, then popping it into your mouth, savoring the tasty filling inside. Finish your food excursion with a sweet treat, stopping for a pastry at a local bakery. Enjoy the creamy coconut and winter melon filling surrounded by flaky pastry crust. Your stomach now feeling satisfied after a few hours’ worth of tasty food discoveries, leave your group near the Jing'an Temple Metro stop.

Best way to learn the city

Christina was just frikken awesome. Although I've been in China for 8 years, I still learnt so much from her about the food culture. Would recommend it to anyone.

Great Family Food Tour!
Oct 2020
We took our five kids (ages 4-15) on the Shanghai breakfast tour with Christina and had a fantastic time. Christina was really accommodating of the kids, and flexible with their appetites and interests. Each of us had different favorites, which indicates how much we loved the food altogether. I'm so glad we did this, so now I can have more confidence in eating Shanghai's great local street food options.

Hey Jo - thanks so much for bringing the kids on your tour. We love starting early with young foodies and showing them how amazing Shanghai's culinary scene can be. And we're happy to hear you feel more confident eating out in Shanghai's local stops - that's always been our mission!

An awesome way to spend a morning in Shanghai!
Apr 2020 • Friends
I had followed UnTour on Instagram for ages and just never got around to booking with them. I can't believe I waited so long to try this breakfast tour! Our group all live and work in Shanghai, but felt like we've never make the most of Chinese street food. With our great guide, Kelvin, we were shown around a cool area of the French Concession and given options to try many delicious breakfasts. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody, whether you're visiting or you live in China.

Yay! We strive to present something new and interesting about the local food scene to all of our guests, whether it’s their first day in Shanghai or they’ve lived here for years, so we're always happy to hear when a local expat discovers new dishes on our tour. We look forward to eating with you again!

Your tastebuds will thank you

I've been wanting to do an UnTour food tour pretty much since I arrived in Shanghai over a year ago... The chance finally came around, and I couldn't recommend it more! Whether you're living in Shanghai or just visiting, it's an awesome way to spend a morning; eating some of the best Shanghai street delights, as well as soaking up the atmosphere in the French Concession. Shoutout to Kelvin who was our fab guide - very informative and lots of fun!

scrumptious breakfast meets lovely morning walk
Apr 2020
The breakfast tour doesn't only give you great insight into the breakfast world of Shanghai but also boasts a lovely walk through the French Concession filled with fun facts about the city. I've been living in Shanghai for over 6 years now and yet our guide Kelvin managed to show me details about this city I've never noticed before even though I walk by them every day.

This is a great opportunity for first-time Shanghai visitors to get a solid introduction into Chinese breakfast culture or a nice way to try out that curious looking pancake, you've seen Chinese people eat, but never really had the courage to try.
Be prepared for copious amounts of food and quite possibly a little food coma.

Hi Anne - Thanks for your kind words - the best thing about food tours is getting to sample so many dishes in just a few hours, especially for our guests who traveling solo and have limited stomach/table space. We're glad to hear you took our advice to come hungry and enjoy all the tastings we sample along the tour route. We hope you'll eat with us again soon in Shanghai (or if you make it to Beijing)!

An Intimate Exploration of the Former French Concession
Oct 2019 • Friends
I am Shanghainese, born and raised, and absolutely LOVED my morning breakfast tour with Kelvin. I used to spend time in this part of town as a child but I hadn’t had a chance to explore it in years. My husband thought it would be a fun surprise for my birthday to go on a tour.

Totally impressed with our guide Kelvin, who is also from Shanghai, and with his enthusiasm and knowledge of the city. He’s super easy going and it feels like you’re just hanging out with a good friend.

Be ready for copious amounts of food and you should not make plans for lunch. Thanks Kelvin and the UnTour team for a birthday I will not forget!
