It is really a fun way to explore HK, even I am a native, I have not had the chance to experience all those delicacy.
Our guide Nicole 'Cookie' provided the best experience and commentary possible. Not only the food but also the atmosphere. I love food and wine experiences and this would rate as one of the best. We felt like honoured locals.
This was small group tour 8 led by Ben. The reason for my trip to Hong Kong was to revisit childhood memories of living in Hong Kong, as a young child, in 1963 and I hoped that this trip would enable me to explore the more traditional areas of Hong Kong from this era. I was not disappointed! Along Wing Lok Street and Des Voeux Road West we saw the dried seafoods, sharks fins, birds nests and Chinese medicinal goods. We experenced Dim Sum, Wonton / Beef Brisket Noodle Soup and Char Siu BBQ Pork in places where the locals eat! I was introduced to Yuen Yeung mix of tea and coffee, which I then had many more times throughout my trip. We sampled anoher local treat - the egg tart - yummy! As we walked Ben pointed out key buildings / areas of interest including the longest escalator in the world, which runs a length of 800 meters and climbs 135 meters in elevation! and we also rode a tram. Ben is clearly knowledgable about the area and his love of Hong Kong was clear. An excellent trip that I would recommend if you want to engage with locals and 'step outside' of the usual toursist trips recommended in your tour guides.

This trip was AMAZING! Our guide was fantastic. Most memorable experience in Hong Kong.
Thank you so much. This made the trip.
This was a great tour we loved it. Jess our tour guide was special. She did everything right. Our tour was amazing she showed us all the things that makes Hong Kong foodie tours special. She showed us food store, markets, good food places and even a traditional Chinese pharmacy. She took us to see the grannys that put curses on people. She even made sure that when our tour ended we knew exactly how to get to the star ferry so we could go to the lady market three cheers for Jess the best.
Fantastic walking/Transit food tour taking you over different places in Hong Kong. Our guide was AWESOME!!!!! Laura is extremely knowledgeable and fun and friendly and very motivating. She knows the extra special places to take you and will bring you to authentic, Hong Kong Chinese food. Don't do HK without this tour!!!!
Our family couple and our 18 year old son had a weekend in Hong Kong and we booked the small group Hong Kong Island Food Tour. We didn't have much time in the area and this tour really made the most out of the time we had. The food was excellent, we went to restaurants we would never have found by ourselves and we were the only tourists in them. Between food stops Laura told us about the stores we were passing and explaining how the dried products on display were used in Chinese medicine. We had a ride on the Ding Ding trolley car between restaurants as well. There were 10 in our group, it was a great morning and the first thing we talk about when we tell people of our weekend in Hong Kong. Thanks, Laura for a great tour.

The food was excellent and from places we would never have found ourselves. He also helped us with other places we wanted to visit. well worth doing.
