This half-day food tour of Hong Kong makes five stops where you sample authentic Cantonese cuisine. Taste dim sum, wonton noodle soup, traditionally roasted meat, milk tea, and an egg tart, all eaten at local restaurants. Learn from your guide about the city's mix of British and Chinese heritage, from Guangzhou influences to Western favorites. A maximum of 9 people only makes this the most immersive food tour available in Hong Kong.
  • Get an insider experience of Hong Kong’s fascinating culinary scene
  • Sample local specialties such as wonton noodles, egg tarts, and roasted meat
  • Receive enough restaurant recommendations to last your entire vacation
  • Explore and eat in an intimate group limited to eight people
What to Expect
Convene with your guide and group at a designated meeting point in the Sheung Wan district of Hong Kong. Begin the tour with a dim sum breakfast at a nearly 100-year-old teahouse. Then continue to a family-run, Michelin-recommended restaurant to sample wonton noodles accompanied by milk tea—a culinary relic of Britain’s colonial rule. Following a ride on the famous Ding Ding Tram (at your own expense), you’ll sample char sui (roasted meat) before satisfying your sweet tooth with dan tat (egg tart) from a 60-year-old bakery. Throughout the tour, peek into dried seafood and medicine shops, and the city’s oldest wet market. The tour concludes at your final stop.
