Greet your gastronomic guide at a central Shanghai location and commence your walking tour of the former French Concession, a quaint colonial area thronged with enticing food stalls. Watch vendors cook fresh local favorites and begin tasting your way through the city; feast on up to eight samples and savor the unique flavors of guotie (pan-fried dumplings); jiaozi (northern-style dumplings); hun tun (wontons); and Shanghai's renowned xiaolongbao (steamed soup dumplings).

Listen as your guide offers fascinating insight into the cultural significance of food in Shanghai and admire the scenery as you stroll past Art Deco architecture to the venue of your cookery class. Greet your professional chef and observe a demonstration on how to make har gow, a Cantonese dim sum specialty that comes in the form of steamed potato wrappers stuffed with shrimp.

Under the guidance of your chef, prepare your dumplings and cook them to perfection before sinking your teeth into the delicious delicacy.

My trip was cancelled due to covid. I requested a cancel and refund with no response. I would love to travel but unfortunately it’s not available at the moment and I felt like that wasn’t understood. Ripped off of my money.

Hi Nicolette - I apologize for the confusion. We offer a 100% refund policy for cancellations due to Covid, as we completely understand this is out of your control. But we cannot control the speed at which Viator (the third party ticketing platform you purchased your tickets on) sends through a refund. Viator is currently processing your refund, but do keep in mind that it takes 3-5 business days for the money to return to your account. We hope you'll come eat with us when travel opens back up again. In the meantime, please stay safe and healthy!

Even for me 4,5th time to visit Shanghai, it was really interested. The restaurants which we visited are all so local places and our guide explained about the food very well. I participated this tour alone. We could share the dishes so that we enjoyed do many kinds dim sums. Highly recommend!!

This was an absolutely fantastic tour. Our guide Rosie was knowledgeable and engaging. The food was fantastic at each stop, and my children ages 9 and 12 particularly loved learning to make dumplings. You can't go wrong with this tour, and go hungry. We made the mistake of eating breakfast first and should have just waited to eat with the group.

One of the best tours I have ever done! Our guide was so knowledgable and welcoming and an absolutely sweetheart. But please be warned DO NOT EAT BEFORE THIS TOUR!! You need all the room in your stomach for the enough amount of different dumplings that are offered. The cooking class was fun and we were given a great handout with recipes and advise. I highly recommend this tour and I may even do it again when back in Shanghai!!
