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.

Hey Vera - I am so glad to hear you had fun on the tour as a solo traveler! Our public tours are designed to be great for both groups and those traveling on their own, and - not to brag - but we really do have the BEST GUESTS ever. As Julia Child said, "People who love to eat are always the best people." We hope you'll join us for another tour in Beijing or Shanghai.

Delicious and informative

I enjoyed trying a variety of regional foods. My favorite was the final restaurant, especially when the staff performed a dance! Patrick and Shanshan were friendly and knowledgeable guides, and they worked really hard to ensure that all dietary and drink preferences were provided for. I will definitely join another tour soon!

Something for everyone to enjoy!
Sep. 2021
I really enjoyed this night eats tour. Even though I have lived in Shanghai for 3 years
(this is my 4th), I was still introduced to new foods and local experiences. Each stop brought experiences of food from different provinces around China, so it was great to try lots of different foods and find out the backgrounds of each dish. Our guides Patrick and Shanshan were informative, polite and friendly. I had a great time and would highly recommend this tour!

10/10 would recommend
Jul. 2021 • Solo
I had an amazing food tour with UnTour. The guide, Patrick, was amazing and the food was incredible. As someone who lives in Shanghsi I can feel super overwhelmed by the food choices available and always love to find new great places to go. This tour helped me find some amazing local places to go with food from several food regions. I can not say enough about the great food I had on the tour. 10/10 would highly recommend!

Excellent food tour!!!
May 2021
We went on a UnFood tour as a going away gift for a friend. Patrick, our leader, was very knowledgeable and showed us a number of different local restaurants. Each one represented a different region of China and its unique cuisine. Patrick shared his knowledge of China and was able to answer all our questions. After 5 restaurants, 2 snacks and some “adventure food” we were stuffed!! It was a great night!!
