Hi Peter - We're glad to hear you had a great time on your other tours, but we are so sorry to hear that the tour didn't live up to your expectations, and we're surprised to hear you doubt the cleanliness of our kitchens. We pride ourselves on being family-friendly with a food safety focus. On our tours, we only work with trusted vendors whom we’ve been frequenting for years. We know their kitchens inside and out. These stops are our absolute favorite places to eat – the same places we take our family and friends – and we’ve built a reputation on helping people eat safely in Shanghai and Beijing since 2010. We hope you'll eat with us again the next time you're back in China!
