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.

度过了一个非常轻松愉快的上午。 吃:完全是预期以上、本来以为只会吃一家店的,没想到后面还有好多、午饭直接可以省略; 逛:真的是原汁原味的上海居民区,几乎没有游客,能亲身体验到当地人的生活节奏; 聊:没想到和第一次见面的人聊天内容会如此广泛,从学生时代的小段子聊到人生态度。 非常感谢让我回想起自己曾经也是一个有梦想的人、并且现在仍然有实现它的机会~笔芯♥️希望在我家乡再见🌙

Not only the food was incredibly tasty, but all the places we went were super authentic, the kind of places only locals visit. Lily is a great host, very knowledgeable and interesting. Really really enjoyed my experience and fully recommended it. Great value for all that you eat and learn!

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!
