    Great Tour
    Great few hours with Matteo. We saw Hong Kong in a totally different way as Matteo was very informative and took us to places we’d never see if we’d been on our own.

    Genuine food experience
    I had the 10 Tastings of Honkong: Streetfood with Cosmo and that was great. I had such a good and delicious time. Apart from the restaurants, which I never would have been able to enjoy as a tourist, also the walks and public transport was really great. If not for Cosmo, I would most likely not have used the charming tram for instance. And he showed and explained to me so much about the food (caterpillars, fish stomach, abalones, exotic fruit and many more), that is sold in the little shops and street stalls. He also shared historical and other interesting details about Hongkong, taking all of my questions into account. It was not all about food, also lifestyle, art and other offerings of Hongkong were brought to me. The Yum Cha in the genuine restaurant will always be a special thing to remember.

    3 hour Hong Kong food and history tour with Cosmo is well worth it
    Cosmo is amazing! What a fantastic 3 hours we shared. Very knowledgeable, very proud and very patient as we asked a lot of questions. We had some great food, some great laughs and a great experience. Highly suggest you do this tour.

    Excellent Kowloon Walking Tour
    We were a group of 4 and signed up for the Off The Beaten Track Kowloon tour through Withlocals. We were happy we did as you got to see real life Hong Kong versus the big city glitz of HK Island. Angel was our guide and did a fabulous job taking us around and providing historical commentary on all the relevant sites. We toured the markets, housing areas, a local museum, etc. About 2.5 hours in total. Just the right amount of time. Great job!!!

    Great option to know HK beyond the main attractions
    My wife and I took a cruise which departed from HK and got there a few days early to get used to the time zone… Cosmo was assigned to us and we were lucky to get him… he is very knowledgeable of the area and has unmatched service attitude

    Guide never turned up, no communication with us!
    Very disappointed as our guide Samuel never arrived. Another guide, Cosmo was waiting for his client at the same spot, he was able to find out what had happened. Samuel had reported ill 3 hours previously but nobody had warned us and no replacement guide arranged. We waited 40minutes, Cosmo’s client never showed so he kindly gave us a quick version of the tour before leaving us at the star ferry terminus with instructions on where to stand for the light show. We still have had no apology from the company.

    I would only recommend to my enemies.
    The tour did not include half of the advertised itinerary. It was basically taking you to 2 restaurants and 2 bakeries. The restaurant was tim ho wan, a famous chain located in the basement of IFC. No fruit at the market. This was a scam.

    Angel was amazing! I had a wonderful time and Angel taught me so much about Hong Kong. She took some amazing photos and showed me some cool sites that I wouldn’t otherwise found on my own. Highly recommended!!

    Like having a friend show you the real HK
    Can absolutely recommend this tour with Angel. We did a private tour which she catered to our interests, in particular to properly understand HK’s past, present and future. We sampled some delicious food (wife cant stop talking about the milk tea 😊) and we visited some important institutions of HK’s past. Highlights included visiting community housing project in Wan Chai and the first public housing built in Sham Shui Po. Angel is smart, very well humored and kind. There’s no bigger endorsement I can give other than to say Angel’s good company was like having a good friend show you the city. A fascinating, rewarding trip that truly completed our understanding of HK and its people. Thanks so much Angel!

    I had a great tour with Angel and she helped me capture some very unique and memorable photos! She’s very knowledgeable about Hong Kong and she has a great sense of humor. I definitely recommend going on a tour with her.

    A lovely stroll through Hong Kong streets
    I truly enjoyed this food tour with Matteo. He’s quite a witty character with a sharp sense of humour. Before we started tasting all those amazing meals, I had been given a brief introduction to Hong Kong’s history which had been helpful as well as Matteo’s patience to answers all my questions. We visited interesting places and restaurants I certainly would not have gone to on my own due to my cultural and linguistic limitations. I’m glad Matteo truly tried to customise this tour to my taste and likings as I sometimes struggle with local asian cuisine. Overall it was a great experience and I could not recommend Matteo more. Thank you again.

    Great experience with authentic local guide
    The Foodtour with Angel was an exceptional experience. On the one hand Angel introduced us to nice local places where you probably won’t go as a tourist. We had Dim Sum, Noodles, Pastries, tea and coffee. The choice was very nice and I recommend to go to the tour with an empty stomach and some appetite. On the other hand Angel as a tour guide is just amazing. An authentic local that shares not only insights about food but also about Hong Kong history, language fun facts and personal stories. I highly recommend this tour and would also do other tours with Angel. Thanks for the experience.

    Fantastic Tour with Excellent Guide
    My daughter And I thoroughly enjoyed our day with Angel, our guide. She was the perfect guide as she has a lot of personal and family connection to the city and its culture. The route she chose for us was varied and interesting. It was a very full day, but didn’t feel at all hurried. I would advise anybody visiting Hong Kong for the first time to take this tour early in your visit if you can. I really enjoyed wandering on my own through the city and revisiting many of the things that I had seen with Angel, with the new appreciation for their significance. Very highly recommended!

Average at best. Basically marking it to three food stands in Mongkok for 100$ per person, way overpriced. Would have loved to try more different things rather than “what do u want” with some more deeper insides. Temple street was not busted either. Looked like a quick exit in the end. Cannot recommend.

It's about as bad an experience as one could have, basically a scam.

Samuel Li, the tour operator, texted me asking me to meet earlier, but I couldn't, to which he replied he'd see me at the original start time of 7:30. I texted him when I arrived, but he never heard back. I waited a half hour, and he never responded.

I put a refund request into TA/Viator, shared the texts below. I also asked for the uber expenses as I had to take one to meet Sam. They denied both a the very least they should refund the tour, the operator was a no show after confirming he'd be there.
He also ignored both my texts after I arrived at the designated meeting spot (see photos). DON"T BOOK THIS TOUR.

We booked "A Taste of Hong Kong: Night Markets & Street Food Tour" with Wing Wing and were not disappointed. She is very kind, it was even possible to start the tour earlier. She showed and explained everything that was possible, we had an amazing time with her - and of course, we ate a lot. :) We were lucky to have her as our guide, especially as she also helped us with bargaining for some souvenirs. Thank you for the tour!

I booked the tour „Taste of Hongkong“ with street-market and street food experience and my guide was Wing Wing. I had a really good time and so nice tastings. Even though I had touched the area around Tempel Street before, it gave me a complete new view, so many more details and of course great street foot experience, which I would never had experienced on my own. Strolling through the busy streets with Wing Wing was a real pleasure. She explained the best food, the best spots in the area, and I had a really good time. The task 2 1/2 hour and it felt like it was over in no time, because it was so entertaining and delightful. Apart from that, Wing Wing is a very amiable, knowledgeable and sympathic person, with whom I really liked to spend time. She told me so much about the New Year’s tradition, about Hong Kong, about how to have a good time. Great experience, thank you so much!

Edward took us to places we never would have gone on our own, and introduced us to Hong Kong foods such as fried milk squares and salty egg chicken wings along with six other delicious tastes at local spots. We couldn’t finish all the dishes. Along the way we walked through non-touristy neighborhoods, took a fast and fun ride in a minibus and observed the locals going about their day. We visited a market and saw all kinds of food for sale like frogs, pig trotters, and snakes. The tour was a wonderful introduction to Hong Kong. Edward answered all our questions and set a pace that was comfortable for us two seniors. We highly recommend a tour with Edward.

Loved our tour with Cosmo! We got to try some tasty local food options and also roam through several markets which include shopping, flowers, karaoke, pets, and even tarot card reading. This is a great way to explore the sights and tastes of Kowloon. Cosmo is a laid-back and knowledgeable tour guide with excellent English.

Unlike the tour description, we were not guided for 30 minutes through the Temple St night market - the guide dropped us off at the head of the block and said everything is for tourists and menus are in English. He did this even though I said I was very hungry and wanted help selecting dishes. We also did not get the grilled skewers, coconut water or Michelin rated desserts described in the online tour description. The “tastings” we got consisted of sharing a take out dish of gummy rice rolls, six little fish balls, some Shaomai fish dumplings - all from one corner take out stall/restaurant. They were pretty awful - just gummy, bland, drinking food. Our other two tastes were an also carbs, despite me saying I wanted meat or veggies - pineapple buns (one each!) and a waffle to share. Samuel was intelligent but did not speak clearly, and did not seem to want to talk about food. He did not provide a backstory on the vendors, or seem to have any friendly relationship with them. Compared to the many other food tours we have had in cities around the world, this one was awful - a waste of time and a rip-off.

We did this tour with the tour guide Samual. He is an excellent guide that takes the time to find out the things you are interested in as well as your personal tastes. By doing this he then tailors the tour to suit you rather than just take you on a stock standard tour that incorporates things that don't interest you.
