CHENGDU CLASSICS FOOD TOUR
After meeting your friendly, bilingual guide at a central location, you'll get snacking almost immediately. In addition to the delicious tasting stops, you'll learn about Chengdu's development, and its strategic importance in China's history. As dusk approaches, you’ll also snack your way through a market with other local shoppers, where you will learn about ingredients, food sources and the role that fast-disappearing markets play in the community and see first-hand how locals live. You'll end with a family-style meal over beer and local spirits with your newfound foodie friends. UnTour Food Tours is proud to partner with Chengdu Food Tours to offer this experience. Please note that Chengdu Food tours has a booking minimum of 2 guests.
