Want to get paid to talk about delicious food? We are looking for outgoing, passionate tour guides available on a full-time basis in Shanghai. Preference will be given to candidates who have availability during the day on weekdays.
We are a top-rated walking culinary tour company. We cater to tourists and expats who want to know more about authentic local foods and neighborhoods. Since 2010, we’ve taken tens of thousands of guests on eating adventures in China, with extremely positive feedback and many guests reporting back that it was the highlight of their time in China.
What We Do:
Guided, informal, three-hour walking tours showcasing the city’s tastiest, most authentic eats and more. We will never carry a flag, and only do small, intimate groups. Each tour has 4-6 tasting stops in local neighborhood food stalls and holes in the wall that are popular with locals but intimidating for some outsiders. Guides don’t have scripts to memorize; rather they should feel comfortable sharing their knowledge of the city (with plenty of training materials provided), Chinese culture, food & life in engaging, natural conversation.
• Fluent English & Mandarin Chinese
• Easy-going, friendly personality
• Advanced food knowledge and enthusiasm about Chinese food
• Willingness to try anything once
• Has lived in China for minimum 2 years (18+ months of which have been in Shanghai)
• Familiarity with Shanghai and its dining scene
• Additional European Languages are a plus
Remuneration is competitive, and good guides often receive tips and bonuses in addition to their wages.
