What You Can Expect

Small-Group Hong Kong Island Food Tour

Small-Group Hong Kong Island Food Tour

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 other culinary venues like the dried seafood shop and Chinese medicine shops from the 1940s, including the city’s oldest wet market. Take favor in your visit to Central and Wan Chai.

An excellent way to get to know the real Hong Kong food. Our tour guide Ben was very informative and friendly. The food and company in our group of 5 was great and we had a really enjoyable few hours of eating, walking and talking. Thanks Ben!

Really nice food tour! We have been on places you cannot find on your own. Same with the great food! This tour is definitely really expensive, but it's worth the money.

This has been one of the best tours we have taken. Our guide Ben was informative and friendly. We ate in places you wouldn't even know existed. All the food options were well chosen by Ben and were delicious. Not only did we taste different foods on the tour but Ben also showed us street markets and a temple a long the way.The walk was easy and we learnt so much about Hong Kong. This was my 6th visit to Hong Kong and of all the different tours and experiences HK has to offer this is one tour I would suggest you don't miss. We ate yum cha, wonton noodle soup, at the same restaurant Anthony Bourdain ate, milk tea, egg tart and char sui. All of it beautiful. Thanks Hello Hong Kong.

This was the best of the tours. Our guide from Happy Hong Kong was very knowledgeable. We traveled quite a bit in the city and got to taste great popular local foods and drinks. The day start off with a typical HK breakfast which my wife still talks about. We then sampledmultiple foods and drinks while touring different parts of the city and learning about the sights, culture, and the people. All the food and drink was included in the price. Guide had tables reserved at the food stops or knew the owners well enough that we got seated after a short wait -- even at a Michelin rated spot. Guide was very helpful in making suggestions for things to do for the rest of our stay in HK. This tour is a must and worth every penny.

We love to eat and now schedule a food tour wherever we can. Michael, our tour guide was terrific. Took us into places we never would have gone in, mostly frequented by the locals, to try wonderful dishes. From the dim sum to walking past and learning about the dried seafood to wonton soup to 2 varieties of pork, to milk tea and a sweet tart, it was a great way to spend half a day. My husband has a ginger allergy which, in Asia, is difficult to work around at times. Laura was great in letting us know what to avoid in advance. Don't think twice about whether to book this tour!
