    The World of Tea
    If you are interested in Chinese culture, then learning about tea is a must. I was in Hong Kong for two weeks, and this was certainly one of the highlights. Cecilia is very passionate about tea and is talented at sharing her knowledge about this very big subject. The experience has opened up a new world for me, which I'm grateful for. It also made visiting the Flagstaff House Museum of Tea Ware in Hong Kong Park quite fun.

    Excellent tour!
    We live in Hong Kong and decided to do this tour to learn about a different neighbourhood in the city. Carrie was such an excellent guide - we learnt so much, not just about the food and local restaurants, but also about the history of the neighbourhood and family run businesses in the area. This was such a great experience that we will absolutely highly recommend to any of our visitors to the city.

    Absolutely fantastic experience. I was by myself and ended up being the only person on the tour, and while this could have been awkward it never was. Kari (I'm so sorry if that's the wrong spelling!) was an excellent guide, and I really appreciated all the extra information about Hong Kong she included, besides just what was relevant to the food. And the food was great! It was a good way to try foods/restaurants that I might've been too intimidated by otherwise.

    Perfect and scrumptious food tour
    This was a fabulous tour. The food was amazing and we went to places we wouldn't have found on our own. It was a perfect amount of time - not too long and not too short. Our guide was fantastic, thank you!!

    Fascinating insight into Hong Kong with a delightful guide
    A fascinating tour around a local neighborhood. We got not only to taste very traditional dishes, but also talk to the charming owners and watch them preparing the dishes in their tiny kitchens. We walked through markets, with our delightful guide pointing out interesting items and explaining some of their history. We even got to see some knife sharpening in the back workshop of the kitchen utensil shop. Highly recommended as an authentic insight into real Hong Kong living.

    Tea Tasting and Brewing Tour
    Cecilia is amazing guide. She is very passionate about her tea tasting profession. I learn a lot about tea in 2 hours than in years of drinking tea. And she always gives positive feedback. That there is no wrong or right way in serving / drinking tea. You can be complete nervous wreck and still able to brew a nice cup of tea. This tea tasting tour is new, available from last Christmas. Give it a try, one does not have to be a regular tea drinker to enjoy the tour

    Culinary satisfaction
    We’ve been to Hong Kong many times but this was our first visit post Covid and we wanted to try something different. We’re glad we chose to do this food tour. Our guide Carrie was great. She navigated us through the streets of Sham Shui Po and provided interesting insights into the neighbourhood’s history, leading us to local eateries that showcased the city’s rich culinary heritage. We particularly enjoyed the steamed rice rolls, the soy bean curd dessert and the dumplings, delicious and true local flavours. Thank you for the memorable experience. We look forward to doing another food tour with Hong Kong Foodie Tasting Tour on our next trip.

    Dirt cheap food that doesn’t lack taste….
    Tai po market food hall….. what an experience… several food units, serving traditional Hong Kong fast food, try the won ton beef brisket noodle soup… it’s amazing, alternatively I recommend the fish ball, fish skin noodle soup…. The soup broth is tasty…. The won tons are packed full of meaty goodness, the beef so tender and flavourful…. With the fish balls, you can’t go wrong with the ever popular ingredient for noodle soup…. But for me it’s the crispy fried fish skin, I was reluctant at fish to try but what can I say, after the first taste it’s pure addiction, even try soak it in the soup broth, the skin remains firm and crispy… don’t know how they do it but it’s worth it…. Like all market places in HK you need to be quick, often you share tables with strangers, all looking for that quick bite…. Hussle and bustle of HK food markets it’s what makes the experience, but ultimately it’s the price that leaves you smiling…. For a bowl of noodle soup you’ll pay $15-20 HK which equates to £1-2 gbp…. Feed a family for less than £10…. You can’t do that in the UK…. That’s why I love HK and it’s food

    Highly recommended tour
    This tour exceeded expectations. It felt like a more genuine Hong King experience than the usual tour. The food was amazing. Our guide Carrie was exceptional. Great for the whole family (kids 15, 13 & 9).

    An exciting tea-tasting experience
    I have taken part in tea-tasting sessions in various Asian countries, but Cecilia's experience was absolutely unique. Not only does she share her knowledge with great humour and professionalism, but what makes the session exceptional is that she gives us the opportunity to learn how to brew the tea by ourselves. In this way, we were able to experiment with the dosage of the tea, the different techniques for pouring the water, and we were able to taste the results and note the differences in taste of the multitude of teas she offered for tasting. I enthusiastically recommend tea tasting to all curious tea lovers.

    Hong Kong Food Tour!
    I had a blast today enjoying all the yummy food and interesting stories at Sham Shui Po. Even though I had been to HK for many times, but today's trip made me appreciate the generations of hardships and relationships. It made me learn about the life of the HK local people and how they helped one another through difficult times. Thank you my tour guide, Cecilia for this exclusive tour. Appreciate your professionalism to give me the most valuable experience! Did 3.5 hours just flew by! Oh my gosh.. didn't even realise that. :)

    Thoroughly enjoyed the tour from start to finish. Cecilia was a great storyteller and I like what she shared with us — authentic, delicious, heartwarming dishes produced by the local community. I highly recommend this tour and would like to try the other tours next time I am back.

    Must do tour for tourists and local s alike
    Sham Shu Po foodie tour was fantastic. I thought I knew ‘the po’ as a resident who adores zipping in to check out fabric, beads, and all things crafty. Wow, was I wrong. There was so much good food that I was walking by! Looking forward to my next Hong Kong Foodie Tour (Tai Po, here I come :).

    Educate your kids this Summer
    What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon with the family. Having lived in HK for a year we had tried some of these foods before but never knew why or how they fit into the local culture. It was a well thought through tour supporting local traders how produce quality food with age old traditions. A great way to engage our children in a food adventure where they could explore little side streets, cavernous food markets, taste the good stuff and hear about how food connects with the history and culture of Hong Kong. Definitely worth doing if you are staying put this Summer!

This is a great food tour! Ed was our guide and he's amazing. He's really friendly, knowledgeable, and fun. He made sure our entire group was engaged and interested the whole time. Each stop featured food that was both delicious and relevant to Hong Kong. As first-timers, this was a great way to get the basics of the city's food and culture. Ed shared information beyond just food, which was helpful and much appreciated. I think this is a great way to spend an afternoon as you are both eating and learning at the same time. Great experience!

This is a gem not only for visitors but also for expats living in Hong Kong. We took the whole family with friends and kids aged 8-12years and it was an amazing experience! A wonderful balance between great local food you’d never find by yourself and history or local anecdotes that just made everything so real and special. I look forward to trying out another route soon...

I actually went on two Foodie Tours: Central, as well as Sham Shui Po. For me, food is one of the biggest parts of travelling, and we went to places that I never would have gone to on my own. It was a great learning experience with knowledgeable people and fantastic food. And as food is such an important component of Hong Kong life, I learned a lot about the city and how it's changing. Very much worth it.

This was such a fun day! Lillian was an excellent tour guide, it was just the two of us and she was delightful company and brought me to lots of places I would never have found myself, as well as explaining their history and cultural significance. Between dishes there was plenty of history and fun facts about the different neighbourhoods we passed through. It was a great insight to Hong Kong food and culture, even for those who think they know it all!

Our guide Ed took us on a culinary, cultural, and sight-seeing tour of Central and Shuen Wang. The tour showcased a variety Hong Kong cuisine from long-established places, some of which have been run by a number of generations. Everything we ate was excellent! Highlights for me were the wonton noodles shop, roast meat restaurant, and preserved fruits shop. I will forever compare future consumption of wonton noodles and BBQ pork based on what I ate during this tour 😊. The tour was enhanced by stops along the way at temples, markets, and landmarks and the history of the two districts.

There were just the two of us on this tour with the knowledgeable and charming Yammy. She showed us places we'd never find by ourselves and the food was great. As others say, arrive hungry. We returned to our first stop for lunch the next day and, again it was great. The only problem was our timing - just prior to Chinese New Year one regular stop was closed and there was no egg tart as it was all New Year special treats. After visiting Hong Kong often over many years I wish I'd done this much earlier. Highly recommended.

This is my second tour with this company (first one was the craft beer tour) and I was not disappointed. I brought my cousin from the US with my husband and I, who live here in Hong Kong. Our tour guide’s name was Eddie and he was informative and cool!

What we all agreed were the highlights of this tour were:

1. This history behind the food we ate
2. The areas we toured; we learned a lot more about Central and Sheung Wan
3. Meeting the shop/restaurant owners and getting to go behind the scenes

We will be back for another tour soon! This is a great way to learn more about the community you live in and to treat guests from out of town to a feast for the eyes and mind.

Ed, our amazing, gracious guide was so knowledgeable and gave us so much insight. Not only about the food but about the locals, the area and the way its changing. The food selections were all so delicious, we went back to almost all of the restaurants we visited on the tour for meals later in our trip. Highly recommend.

I had the pleasure of going on the Central & Sheung Wan Foodie Tour in late April 2018. Ed was the awesome tour/foodie guide and was more than accommodating in answering questions not necessarily related to food in HK but also about the rich history HK has. It was my first time in HK and this tour allowed me to experience a great variety of food that introduced me to HK cuisine. From mouth watering won ton soup , BBQ pork , steamed dumplings and fried delights this tour is a must do for any person new to HK. Ed is a very passionate tour guide who seems quite proud of his home town and kept me interested the entire tour. He even helped with directions on how to get to places once the tour was completed. I will definitely go on another foodie tour again when I am in HK next. 🥟

Hi Flynnie86, "Dor Tse" (Thank you) for your great review of our Central & Sheung Wan Foodie Tour and for the compliments for Ed. Great to know you had a great time not just tasting delicious Hong Kong eats, learning about some history and culture, but also picking up some useful Cantonese phrases! :) We are really glad to hear our Foodie Tour helped you experience the wide range of cuisines Hong Kong has to offer. We've only scratched the surface so definitely come back and join us on another Foodie Tour when you're in Hong Kong next.
