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.
