Overview
Shanghai’s diverse food scene can be daunting for first-time visitors. Opt for an authentic taste of Shanghai on a food tour, a great cultural introduction to China’s second city. Sample a dozen traditional Shanghai dishes—noodles, buns, and soup dumplings—and receive restaurant recommendations to enjoy throughout your vacation. Morning, lunch, evening, and late-night tours allow you to fit this Chinese food experience into any travel itinerary.
What to Expect

Greet your guide at the designated meeting point at the time you selected when you booked your tour. As you walk toward the recently restored Xintiandi food area, your guide provides an introduction to the culinary culture of Shanghai.

Over the course of the tour, you’ll sample dumpling soup, spring rolls, candied lotus rice, roasted duck, and many more local specialties. See, too, the bustling Yunnan Road, and cleanse your palate with cups of green and black tea between each stop.

This Shanghai food tour ends on Yunnan Road, where you can keep exploring the city on your own or call it a day.

The tour lasts about 4 hours but remember during that time you are sitting at restaurants and eating the local food. I didn't find the walk hard so you should be ok.
