Wan Chai, Hong Kong
Begin your guided tour by meeting in the Sheung Wan district of Hong Kong Island, and make your way to an old tea house for your first dish, a breakfast of yum cha (dim sum) served by trolley. Let your senses absorb while taking in the restaurant’s atmosphere—lively and crowded with a history that dates back almost 100 years.

Then head to a family-run business from the 1960s, recommended by the Michelin Guide, for wonton noodles, a Hong Kong specialty that, while simple, can only be perfected by a local master. Continue your tour with a cup of milk tea, one of the most pervasive pieces of the city’s food culture that remains from the days of British rule.

Next, take a ride on the Ding Ding (the Hong Kong tramway; own expense) to another family-run restaurant, which dates back to the Qing dynasty (pre-20th century) and is renowned for its English char siu (roast meat). Taste a mixture of traditional roasted meats served with rice and homemade sauces before ending your foodie adventure with a dan tat (egg tart), another Chinese take on an English dish, the custard tart. Take pleasure in the 60-year history of this local bakery, a favorite of one former Hong Kong governor.

Throughout the tour, hear about Hong Kong’s food history, and make stops at a local tea shop to try preserved "candies," a family-run soy sauce producer, a dried seafood shop, a Chinese medicine shop from the 1940s, and the city’s oldest wet market.

Don't let its modest interior fool you, the place is always packed with locals. Find yourself transported back to a bygone era as you sample authentic and tasty dumplings that are served out of the traditional dim sum trolley. You will not leave unsatisfied.

Hello Hong Kong: Private & Small Group Tours
Right on the cusp of what used to be the home of Hong Kong Island’s European and Chinese communities, Gough Street’s sleepy pace, colonial-style chic, hip boutiques and fashionable restaurants have baited a good mix of designer homewares stores, with funky retailers contributing to one of Hong Kong’s most eclectic neighbourhoods.
Stop At:  
Central
One of the oldest yet also most dynamic districts in the city, Central and Western District – encompassing the sloped streets and small alleys – encapsulates Hong Kong’s rich and diverse spirit. A place where century-old temples share the same streets as fashion-forward concept stores, or where authentic tea houses coexist with modern art galleries, this colourful neighbourhood is at once old and new while also being proudly local and unmistakably global. Stop and satisfy your palate with one of Hong Kong's best Wonton Noodles at a family-run, recommended by Michelin Guide restaurant, that has been running for 3rd generation since World War II.
Duration: 1 hour 
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Mid-levels Escalator
Experience Mid-Levels Escalator, the longest outdoor escalator in the world. It is 800 meters in distance and elevates 135 meters up to the hilly areas that end in Conduit Road. Located next to the escalator is a modest-looking but renowned milk tea place. The secret to the signature milk tea has been straining the brew through a pair of pantyhose for an extra smooth taste!
Duration: 15 minutes

Pass By:  
Tai Kwun - Centre for Heritage and Arts
Tai Kwun presents a wide range of heritage, contemporary art, performing arts and lifestyle experiences in the restored and revitalised Central Police Station compound, which comprises three Declared Monuments, the former Central Police Station, the Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison. It is the recipient of the Award of Excellence in the UNESCO Asia-Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation 2019.
Stop At:  
Hong Kong Tramways (Ding Ding)
Board and enjoy the ride of Hong Kong's electric tram system. It is one of the oldest public transports in the city, first operated in 1904 under British rule and it owns the world's largest operational double-decker tram fleet. The system, being very affordable, is also one of the most environmentally friendly ways of travelling in the city. Learn about notable buildings that you pass by.
Duration: 20 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Wan Chai
Here our food tour stops at another family-run, Michelin Guide recommended restaurant, which dates back to the pre-20th century Qing Dynasty and is renowned for its Char Siu Fan (roast BBQ pork rice). It is a must-stop for everyone who claimed themselves as foodies. Try the Char Siu Fan, the pork is just the right amount of meat, fat and sauce, the contents of which they keep a closely guarded secret. This is the late Anthony Bourdain's favourite. You will leave with a smile and a happy belly.
Duration: 30 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Hong Kong Hennessy Road
Our last stop on the food tour is at a well-established bakery, a personal favorite of a former Hong Kong governor. Get your hands on some of the famous Egg Tart, or Dan Tat in Cantonese, a Chinese version of an English pastry — the custard tart.
Duration: 10 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Southorn Playground
Packed with spectators, sportsmen, and people who want to get away for a quick break from the office and have a bite to eat while watching the crowd goes by, the sports and recreational ground in Wan Chai is the perfect place to end the tour, accompanied with a bite of a nice and creamy egg tart from the bakery. A sweet ending indeed.

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!

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.
