Chengdu Evening Food Tour by Tuk-Tuk
From USD 59.00

The capital of the Chinese province of Sichuan, Chengdu is a 2,400-year-old city famous for its spicy and flavorful regional food. During this one-of-a-kind guided tasting tour through the city’s picturesque backstreets, you’ll travel by tuk-tuk to discover under-the-radar eateries and family-run eateries. Unlimited beer and soda and a small group size make for an all-inclusive experience with plenty of personal attention.

What to Expect
Your tour begins in a private tuk-tuk, a classic three-wheeler perfect for navigating the picturesque narrow lanes. Your guide will fill you in on the city’s famed food scene as you travel between up to five different stops, including family-run eateries and local-favorite hidden gems. Enjoy unlimited beer and soda along the way.

As you hop between food stations, you’ll get a chance to watch classic Sichuan dishes being prepared in person as you discover why the local food culture is such an important part of everyday life in the city. Cover more ground than you could on your own, and venture to places that tourists rarely have the opportunity to visit. Happily fed, you'll end the evening over drinks with locals in a popular bar.

good tour

Patricia is excellent, tour is good if you like spicy food, the dumplings were the best. tripadviser needs to correct - the tour does not offer pick up in the hotel, you have to get to the tuk-tuks on your own

Completely worth it!

I had heard good things about this tour from my coworkers, but was hesitant to book it because of the cost. Why would I pay $60 to eat when I can eat my fill at local places for a few dollars? But I finally gave...More

Like having a hip friend take you around

I wasn't surprised to hear that Lost Plate’s founder is from Chengdu because all the spots we went to on our tuk-tuk tour were very local and pretty well hidden, including a residential apartment that served some excellent spicy dumplings and a hole-in-the-wall joint that...More

That might prove a challenge as the group is on the move in the Tuk-Tuks about every 10-20 minutes for the first couple of stops. You would have to coordinate with the guide. If you can't start from the beginning I would... More
