If you are looking to really get to know a local neighborhood and it’s food highlights, I highly recommend this walking tour. Our local tour guide, Sandy, was awesome! We were able to go to 6 local restaurants in Tin Hau, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Hong Kong. There were only 8 people on the tour so we really had a lot of personal attention. We also went to a fruit market, a veggie market, and a seafood and meat market. We ended our tour at a tea house for dim sum. I would strongly advise that you arrive for the tour HUNGRY! This is not a little food sampling tour—the restaurants are very, very generous and we could not eat all the food provided.

We had a very good time on our food tour in Tin Has, a neighborhood of Hong Kong. We met our guide outside a Metro stop, and she was on-time. We were the only people who had signed up for the tour that morning, so it was a private tour. Our guide's English was good, and she walked us to each restaurant, purchased the food, and told us a little bit about the restaurant and its cuisine. We also had an opportunity to see a few markets and a temple in the neighborhood. The food was good, and since the menus were only in Cantonese, I don't know if we would have been able to find each venue, and if we did, I don't know if we would have known what to order without her.

Had a great time. This was my intro to Hong Kong. Was delicious & informative. Sandy our guide was very smart and helpful. You stop by a market and a few historic temples to take a break between eating.
Some things WE ate, if you’re curious.. brisket, soup dumplings, roasted goose, chicken feet soup (i was the only one who dared), stopped by an asian fruit stand, went to a dim sum restaurant, then ended with milk tea, pineapple bun, & french toast. Very full!

We did this tour on our first full day in Hong Kong and what a great way to start our holiday. Our guide Michael is a HK native and was such a warm, knowledgable and charming person to spend 3 hours with. The food stops had huge variety and gave us great insight into the local flavours and way of life for locals. We also had a nice break with a couple of quick stops to a temple or two, to make way for more food. All of the food was delicious...we will be going back for more while we are still here. A highly recommended tour. (PS don't eat before you go!)

This food tour was away to learn about authentic Hong Kong. Michael was an engaging and knowledgable guide who answered all questions asked about food and living in HK. The food stops were varied and interesting and the food was delicious. We also visited 2 temples and a market which helped to give a greater insight into life in HK. All of the tour was conducted within about 20 minutes of Tin Hau metro station so getting to the tour was easy. I would highly recomment this tour.

We love food and getting to know a city and so this was a fantastic way to get to eat our way around a part of Hong Kong that we otherwise would have never discovered. Michael was a great guide and shared with us a background of Hong Kong that was so much more than just a food tour. The choice of eateries was perfect - from a clear broth with braised beef, dumplings made by the smiliest woman, roast goose and the list went on. Definitely value for money. Michael explained the goings on in two local temples and we rounded off the trip in a restaurant having some last tastings and inundating Michael with questions about Hong Kong. A highlight of our trip.

After passing by many local food places in Hong Kong I found this tour.

As many times in Asian cities I want to try the local food, but not being sure of what I will get and how it works I often find my self choosing a "safe place" - Who want so take the risk being disappointed when hungry?!

Our guides Canny and Michael took really good care of us. We visited a handful of places and got an introduction in Hong Kong foods. Combined with a visit at the fresh market and a break at a local temple where we sat down and shared some fruit, it was a great way to spend a couple of hours in Hong Kong.

Talking to Canny and Michael also gives a unique chance to learn more about what life is like in Hong Kong for the people living there, and it is such a great fun trying new things to eat with other foodies!

Michael was our guide who met us at the Tin Hau MTR and took us first to a beef brisket in clear broth "restaurant" - delicious (actually all of it was delicious). Then it was a place down the road doing pan-fried mini buns with meat and soup inside and then a roasted goose place. Michael got us a waxed apple to munch on while we wandered to and through the wet market followed by a visit to a temple. We had a bit of dim sum at a restaurant that only locals would know was there, hidden downstairs with no English signage. We finished up at a tea house next door to our post tour destination - Second Draft.
Highly recommend it to visitors and locals alike.

A very enjoyable, well-paced tour with a friendly and informative guide. There was a good mix of eating, walking and talking and the location was excellent as it gave you a chance to see real Hong Kong life away from the more touristy spots. We also really liked the short stops at the temples and the visit to the wet market, but the food was the highlight.
