This experience has three hosts: Lily, Jianqiao, and Claire. Lily is an experienced city-walk leader based in Shanghai. Jianniao and Claire were born and brought up in Shanghai, and have a deep love for this city. Their common passion for Shanghai snacks brought them together. After trying tons of soup dumplings and noodles, they decided to make an experience for all people who travel to Shanghai to have a taste of local breakfast, just like all locals do. This city is delicious, and you will know that by heart.

Where you'll be

We will be in the Jing'an districts. We'll start and finish near Jiangsu Road Metro station. We will walk in the middle of the city, which is partly a modern shopping mall area and partly small alleys and old Shanghainese style buildings. It is a very central and nice neighborhood where you can easily spend a day after the experience.

Lily was funny, interesting and interested in getting to know us. We loved spending time with her and getting to know Shanghai breakfast through her eyes. Every where we went was accessible if you speak Chinese, but if not- good luck trying these foods! We don't speak any Chinese, so her help made our trip. We love the variety of places she took us, her conversation, and the extra time she spent getting to know us. You didn't feel like she was pushing you through to get on with her next thing. We felt like we made a friend versus a company tour guide. We were impressed with her professionalism and how delightful she was. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any tour you can take. I would do it every time I am in Shanghai. Thank you, Lily, for being a truly wonderful person and for the perfect experience. I wish all tour guides were like you!

Jianqiao was the host and I was the only guest. Jianqiao talked a lot about food, place, city, etc., and she was very caring about my likes and dislikes. The places are not listed in the latest “地球の歩き方” and “るるぶ” (These are major guidebooks in Japan.), those are local, popular and have histories. Jianqiao was a nice guide and this experience was valuable to me!
