  • This was an excellent tour and I and #39;d do it again if I had the chance. Our small group was the right size to visit many shops and eat like the locals do. Our guide Vicky has an excellent command of English and a lovely personality so communication was easy. Highly recommended.

  • Really enjoyed our tour of Qibao and had some amazing food! Our guide Alana was lovely and answered all of our questions about food and the chinese culture!
    I would highly recommend this tour, we had a great day!

  • An unforgettable Shanghai day tour and foodie tour with nice and warmth tour guide along. Highly recommended if you wish for a friendly tour guide with a good explanation on all the location that she bring me along...you will not regret it!

  • Great tour that takes you not only on a subway experience out to Quibao, a small city on the dge of greater Shanghai but the two ladies who conduct the tour, Vicky and Alana are wonderful, fun and speak excellent English. They will take you to different small eating establishments were you could and would never dare enter on your own, for lack of command of the Chinese language. it is all Chinese here, not geared to foreign tourists, not yet!!! A delightful couple hours in good company!!

  • Great tour! The tour guide Alana was supportive and accommodating on the foods to try. Seeing the town and the temple nearby was an added bonus. I would highly recommend this tour, and eating no breakfast if youre doing the morning tour.

  • This tour was very interesting and we ate delicious food.
    Our guides, Alana and Vicky were so professional and knowledgeable.
    We were picked up from our hotel and driven in very bad traffic to Quibao. VIcky was an excellent driver and negotiated the traffic very well. I was with my mother and Aunt and both Alana and NIcky were so kind and aware when they needed a rest or wanted to spend more time looking at something.

    We ate soup dumplings, spicy tofu, red bean sweet cakes, tarot fried cakes, glutinous rice ball soup, spicy small potatoes and finished up in a very picturesque tea house for tea.
    I would highly recommend this tour. Come hungry!
