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.

Topher was a great guide and the food was yummy and plentiful. I realized when I got home and told people about my trip that I learned more interesting facts, non-food related, from him than I did on my previous all-day Shanghai tour!

We went on this tour last week with Logan. She was a great guide - full of interesting and informative information about the food and the places we walked through. We got to see places, see food being prepared and eat food we wouldn't otherwise have seen or eaten. The food tastings were fabulous - very varied and all tasty. The tour gave us the confidence to identify and order the same food during the rest of our time in Shanghai. We waddled away at the end of the tour nursing our very full bellies. I highly recommend this tour - it is a great and very filling way to spend a morning.

This tour was excellent and I'm so glad we did it! We went to several places and there was a lot of food to try. All the food was excellent and there was a good variety of food. We had noodles, dumpling, soup dumplings, jianbing which is a Chinese breakfast crepe, and egg tarts. We were able to see people making the food in most of the places that we visited. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the food and about Shanghai. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to try local food in Shanghai.

It's worth dragging yourself out of bed at 7am to savour dumplings in brooth and all that follows. If you are staying in or near the French Concession this is a must-do tour. It gives you the confidence to take on the daunting prospect of ordering from a local food place with only Chinese language menus. My guide was Maggie and she was full of enthusiasm for the food and for SHanghai.

Jamie made the entire experience fun, informative and 100 delicious!!! We had a friendly and diverse group, including Maggie, whom I believe as also part of the Glutton Guide team, and she had a lot of great additional information to offer regarding living and eating in Shanghai. She was also kind enough to help me out navigating the Metro after the tour. Thanks for a great morning in Shanghai, Jamie and Maggie!!!
