    Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and great. He was well prepared and ensured our food restrictions were taken care of while still ensuring we tried various things. He also was patient and willing to stop and entertain all our questions enroute

  • 11-Dec-2019

    Great tour with sampling of different foods at restaurants where locals were eating. Our guide, Sinclair, was wonderful.

  • 07-Oct-2019

    Sinclair was one of the best tour guide that I have had in all the years of my travel. My wife and I and son and joyed his tour as well as his understanding of all things food and the surrounding areas. We were involved with part of the disturbance while in Hong Kong and Sinclair was able to get us out of harms way and safe. I would recommend him again in an instant!

  • 02-Sep-2019

    The tour was great, Jane had much knowledge about the food (which was awesome) and Hong Kong. Highly recommend this tour!

  • 29-Aug-2019

    I have done food tours all across Asia and this by far is the best one. It was well coordinated, our guide was very knowledgeable, well spoken, and fun. The food was amazing and he took us to Michelin Star places you would never find on your own. I highly recommend this tour.

  • 09-Aug-2019

    Sinclair led great tour that enabled us to taste a cross section of Hong Kong food and drinks. In addition, he did an excellent job adding in cultural, historical, and local facts that made the tour that much more educational - and he engaged with all members of the tour. Well worth the time, be sure to bring an appetite as there will be plenty of food.

  • 21-Aug-2018

    The tour is amazing. Terrific guidance, delicious food, fun and reveals special places one would never visit on his own (with Michalin stars!). Very recommend.

  • 01-Apr-2018

    Highly recommend this tour. Excellent value and you are provided with authentic Cantonese cuisine.

  • 19-Mar-2018

    This half day tour far exceeded our expectations both in the information we learned and the food and places we visited. It was a wonderful fast paced tour with never a dull moment. We loved the three different restaurants we went to as they epitomized Hong Kong food in three very different ways. All the food was delicious and the experience at each place was different and amazing. In addition, as we walked from place to place our guide, Richard, explained a lot about the area, Chinese medicine and herbs and the different exotic things we saw in each window. This was one of the best tours we have taken in Hong Kong. We highly recommend it. Don't miss it!

    It's been a while back. But it was a great tour.
    I especially remeber the wonton soup and the char sui.

    I would do this tour again when i am in Hongkong.
