UnTour Shanghai launches new culinary day tour, focusing on delicious dumplings in their many forms. Guests will taste a wide array of dumplings while exploring a side of Shanghai most tourists never get to see. Taste the authenticity of Shanghai's most delicious culinary treats on this day tour.
- (1888PressRelease) May 11, 2012 - SHANGHAI - UnTour Shanghai added a new private culinary tour exploring the dumpling highlights of the former French Concession. The 'Dumplings Delights' tour complements UnTour Shanghai's five other culinary experiences already on offer.
"Dumplings - in their many different forms - are China's essential comfort food, but many foreigners who visit Shanghai aren't aware of the sheer variety of dumplings available in the city," says Jamie Barys, Chief Eating Officer of UnTour Shanghai. "Our Dumpling Delights tour is designed to go beyond the typical dumpling order you'd find in Chinatowns around the world. We showcase the simple beauty of a well-made dumpling, whether it's pork-filled wontons the size of a dime or slippery rice noodle rolls stuffed with mushrooms and greens."
For more than 2,000 years, Chinese chefs and home cooks have been perfecting dumplings in all their delicious bite-sized forms. UnTour Shanghai guests will sample everything from potstickers fried up streetside to dim sum mansions serving steamers of har gow (delicate Cantonese shrimp dumplings). During the tour's tasting stops, culinary adventurers will slurp the city's famous xiaolongbao (soup dumplings) while also exploring a Shanghai wet market, park, and old neighborhood.
UnTour Shanghai's private food tours, including the Dumpling Delights option, are all-inclusive. A bilingual guide picks up guests at hotels and residences around the city. All transportation, the best food in Shanghai, and beverages during the tour are provided, and guests receive a welcome pack introducing them to the city's dynamic dining scene. The Dumpling Delights tour lasts about three hours and covers a distance of about 2km on foot. The cost per group up to six people is US$180, and is all-inclusive.
All day tours tours are capped at six people (though arrangements can be made for bigger groups), so each guest is sure to have a personalized experience with plenty of guide and vendor interaction at each stop. Each Shanghai day tour is led by a native English-speaking guide who also speaks Mandarin.

About UnTour Shanghai
UnTour Shanghai is an urban adventure tourism company specializing in jogging sightseeing tours, culinary food tours, and cultural excursions. Thanks to consistently high customer feedback, UnTour Shanghai is rated Shanghai's #1 culinary tour and running tour operator by the users of the popular online travel community, TripAdvisor.
Jamie Barys and Kyle Long created UnTour Shanghai after they became frustrated with the lack of quality tour companies when they had visitors in town. Too often, tour companies take guests to overcrowded tourist spots, leading them around with a flag in one hand and a loudspeaker in the other. An "UnTour", on the other hand, is an art Jamie and Kyle, both avid travelers who have lived in China for more than eight years combined, have perfected. They avoid hordes of tourists and escape guidebook tedium by exploring authentic back alleys and interacting with residents. With UnTour Shanghai's enticing cutom tours, now guests can explore the city like a local and take home unique memories from their trip.
