Well worth doing just to see the indoor market.

Our guide was very sweet, friendly and knowledgeable, and carried an I-pad to show us pictures of the different vegetables in their growing state. The chief was good and demonstrated the dishes in an easy mmanner. Would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Shanghai as you get to see the indoor market, mixing with the locals and visited a typical town apartment, apart from learning to cook 3 fantastic Chinese dishes.
