A privilege and eyeopening experience
FinanceFred, 10-01-2022
What a fantastic way to spend 3 hours! I've been living in Shanghai for over 10 years and I must say this tour opened my eyes to such much that I have been missing out on: the history, the preparations, the flavors, the characters, and the all the hidden gems that were unknown to me. The sad part is I'm about to return to the US and wished I spent more time at the restaurants and businesses UnTour took me to. I can confidently say I won't be getting anything like that outside of Shanghai. And even for the people in Shanghai, I'm afraid some of these places will disappear with time as the older generation retires. This is why I feel like it was such a treat and privilege to have been able to experience it and learn from the incredible team at UnTour. Money well spent and looking forward to another tour with UnTour before I leave town forever. Thank you!!!
Amazing food tour

Our tour guide Patrick showed us 5 nice restaurants with delicious food, which we probably never would try without him. In addition Patrick gave us a lot of background information which was very interesting. Based on our request he optimised this tour to a vegetarian tour.
Fun evening!

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.
Fun Night Out

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.
Enjoyable and interesting
