The food tour was a great culinary and historical visit to a "locals" neighborhood of Hong Kong. I enjoyed sampling the various dishes and learning more about Cantonese culture.

Great food tour with a great host, Sandy was amazing, telling us what the food was, why is was eaten by locals and what made it so good! Also learned about Hong Kong Chinese traditions, culture and Etiquette best money I have spent in Hong Kong, Just wish I’d done it the first time I came!

Wonderful experience. Our guide Siu Waiwas very knowledgeable, and fun. Definitely recommendable, certainly for someone to learn about food culture in the city

Siu Wai was amazing! She was eager to show us this fascinating area in Hong Kong and help us get a true feel for the area, the customs, and, of course, the food! Our time with Siu Wai was well planned out, informative, and a ton of fun. I experienced more in these few hours than I did during my several days in Hong Kong. This tour with Siu Wai is a must!

We went on the food tour on the first full day of our holiday in Hong Kong and it was such an amazing introduction to Hong Kong, the culture, history and must-try foods. Sandy (Siu Wai) was our guide and was such pleasant company!! We had a great time while learning loads and the food was amazing. We even went back to some of the spots later on our trip because it was just SO good!!! Would definitely recommend to anyone going to Hong Kong.

Ski Wai was the best guide! Took time with every attendee, had lots of recommendations, and made the tour fun yet informative. As a solo traveler, I was hoping to meet other travelers and learn more about Hong Kong and it checked those items no doubt!

Siu Wai (Sandy) is such an amazing guide. She is very kind, not only did she take us to delicious food spots, she told us about the history of hong kong, we experienced the culture and she took us to many great spots. She took great pictures and was very pleasant to spend the day with. I highly recommend this tour to do with friends and family. The duration of the tour is ideal, since it’s not too long, yet you get to do and see a lot. Come hungry.

Wonderful experience with Siu Wai who toured us around the local area and shared her local knowledge and more about the history of Hong Kong. Delicious food - thank you!

I would for sure recommend this tour if not for the food then for the knowledge of the guide; my guide ‘Siu Wai’ was very knowledgeable of the area and was abundant with recommendations for all other facets of Hong Kong’s many attractions, skipping breakfast is advisable.

We had the experience we will remember always. Sandy (Sui) was amazing. She took us to places where we were the only non locals. Also, it was a class about China and history. I will definitely do it again. I was with my 15yr old son and he loved it also!!!
