Great tour, would have never tried those places or foods without the guide, there was nothing too extreme and the places themselves were carefully picked and seemed very clean.
I even later bought a bit of the more resilient snacks to share back home.
The guide speaks very clearly and fluently in English.
The specific group of foodies I got were also fun and contributed to the experience.
We absolutely loved the tour. We saw the "real" Hong Kong working and shopping and eating. The food was excellent, the restaurants very clean, and the guide informative. We sampled a variety of foods and beverages. We covered quite a lot of ground and got real insider information on Hong Kong. It was a marvelous tour.
marvellous inspiring, had only just arrived after 24 hr trip but we great the guide really kept us going with the sights, sounds, tastes and knowledge
The tour was awesome our guide Fiona reeally knew her stuff and we not only learnt about the local cusine but also about the history.
The food was fantastic, if you are looking to try local food i highly recommend this food tour.
Excellent tour -- was guided by Cecilia, the owner of the company and she does a great job.
This provided an excellent experience not only in terms of the quantity (very sustantial) and quality (very high) but in terms of the background information to the food and to the area visited. The guide was first rate. Highly recommended.
Our guide Silvana was very knowledgable about both the food and the area, loved the various foods and went back later to sample further. Highly recommend this tour.
Silvana was great sharing food culture and history on the tour. Great food to eat along the way. She had suggestions for other foods and restaurants also.
Excellent tour, good small group, all keen to know about culture and food, guide very knowledgeable and great personality. Learnt about food and the culture and people of Hong Kong. Looking forward to going to other regions of HK with this tour!
A highlight of our time in Hong Kong. A great selection of small family run businesses were visited as we wandered through the two districts. Our guide imparted lots of local information and history along the way, some of which we were able to take advantage of in the following days. A great way to spend an afternoon and you do not have to be a foodie to enjoy.
The guide was knowledgeable, friendly and willing to talk about all aspects of life in Hong Kong. Her remarks about street addresses were a lifesaver for me later when trying to find an Airbnb location. I liked that she talked about the places we were passing as well as the restaurants and that the tour takes us to locally owned small restaurants. I have now eaten again at several of the restaurants from the tour. And let me say - don't miss the roast suckling pig.
Outstanding guide, delicious food and wonderful info about the culture and sights. Was particularly helpful as it was our first day. We sampled all the highlights of Hong Kong cuisine and we went back for more in our remaining 6 days in Hong Kong.
I thoroughly enjoyed my footie tour. Learnt a lot about that part of Hong kong, also the tasting portions were meal size. I would recommend this tour to my friends and anybody else who is interested in seeing another side of Hong Kong.
A great experience and I would fully recommend this walking tour to all who are interested in food and culture.
The tastings were delicious and the stories behind each place we visited were fascinating.
Excellent!! Very professional tour guide with a wonderful selection of tastings perfectly spaced out on this walking tour. The food was delicious and the markets as well as a few historical landmarks along the way were fascinating. This is a delightful way to see a more traditional part of Hong Kong. I unfortunately did this tour on my last day so I was not able to return to the neighborhood for more delicious food and even a little shopping.
Amazing. One of the best tours I have ever done on Vitator. The food was great and interesting. The tour guide was super smart, attentative and just nice. You also get a great walking tour full of history and cool facts amongst the food tastings. First rate tour.
I enjoyed walking around Hong Kong, being treated to interesting facts and history, and sampling some of the best food spots in Hong Kong.
Great trip - special food, history and exercise. Fell in love with the Egg tarts and roast pork - yum yum!
Claudia our tour guide was a very nice young lady with a passion and enthusiasm for her tour. She took us through the central district on foot stopping at delicious small family owned businesses each specializing in delightful high quality cultural foods. Yum! She was also very particular about the origins of each families store we ate at so we got a background understanding of the food and history of the area. We also visited and walked down the Funky Ghost street filled with up in coming designers of art, fashion and learnt the proper way how to make tea at Ivans tea studio. This was super fun and eye opening, I have been making my cuppa's soooooo wrong haha. We ate the best wonton noodle soup with each element being made on site and treated ourselves to a scrummy hongkong style egg tart which I prefer over the Portuguese egg tart. There was one stop with a cane sugar drink that was alittle too unfamiliar for my taste buds that I did not love. We did stop outside afew stores Claudia talked about and recommended worth visiting in our own time. One of these was a Hongkong French toast and syrup place which got my mouth watering and I wished we sampled there instead of the Cane sugar drink. Apart from that little thing it was excellent.
Tour should have started at 2.15 but did not commence until 2.30. It should have lasted for 2.5 hours. After 3 hours we were only 2/3rds of the way through and had to leave as we had dinner booked at our hotel so don't know what the rest of the tour was like. The part that we did take part in was O.K. but not wonderful. The stop at the "Tea Studio" whilst giving a welcome opportunity to sit down was rather boring and far too long winded. BE WARNED. The tour involves climbing some very steep streets and long and steep steps and would not be suitable for everyone. The guide was very pleasant but could have concentrated more on the food and less on the history of Hong Kong.
