Once the last stop on the fabled Silk Road, the ancient city of Xi’an is a melting-pot of cultures—with a rich culinary tradition to match. On this insider’s food tour, leave navigation to your guide, who leads you through the winding streets of the Old City. Ride in style between food stops in your own private tuk-tuk, and enjoy a morning or evening tour to best suit your schedule. 

What to Expect
Meet your guide in the heart of Xi’an, a vibrant, ancient city that once marked the end of the legendary Silk Road. Ride a tuk-tuj down winding lanes and picturesque alleys as you listen to the history of the city and hear about its diverse food traditions.

Next, head to family-run eateries for a rare peek at the city's underground food scene. Locations vary, but you’ll be guaranteed unlimited bites at up to five different delicious food stops. Get a firsthand look at food preparation and learn about the families that have been making classic dishes like yangrou paomo (mutton stew with flatbread) for generations. You’ll have a chance to watch Xi’an’s famous noodles get hand-pulled to order.

Finally, head to a local brewery to drink a fresh print of local brew, or, you’ve opted for a morning tour, sample a classic breakfast platter.
