Overview
Guangzhou is the capital of Guangdong (Canton), the region that gave its name to Cantonese food. Rather than wander a city of 15 million people hoping to find the best eateries, enlist the expertise of a friendly local guide on this small-group walking tour of the Liwan neighborhood. Stop at markets, bakeries, and local eateries, and sample dishes from dim sum to Chinese cakes. 
Highlights
  • Discover Cantonese food in the capital of the original Canton, Guangzhou
  • Feast on favorites like dim sum, roast duck, and glutinous mango rice
  • Try fresh-from-the-sea prawns at a bustling fish market
  • Get personalized insights from your foodie guide on this small-group tour
What to Expect
Greet your guide and small group outside the subway station and head out into the bustling streets and alleyways of Liwan. Start with a stroll through the fish markets, a wholesale market full of live fish and shellfish—the perfect spot to sample salt and pepper prawns. The precise itinerary changes daily, but you might well try pan-fried dumplings, succulent roast duck, Cantonese cakes from historic bakeries, and desserts made from buffalo milk or glutinous rice. One reliable highlight is dim sum at one of China’s finest Cantonese restaurants. Enjoy a classic Cantonese dumpling feast and discover connoisseur dishes like sea cucumber dumplings. After your tour ends, your guide can provide directions to the nearest subway station or help you get a taxi back to your hotel.

We scheduled a tour for just our group of 4. It was so easy to schedule in advance as communication was prompt and thorough. Price was very reasonable. Maggie, our guide was flexible and went above and beyond in being helpful and gracious. We were going to be late because of the

I would recommend this tour to anyone visiting Guangzhou. Ray was really friendly and knowledgeable about Cantonese food and Guangzhou. We learned so much and visited places we would normally never have found. And the food was amazing! Great experience!

First time to Guangzhou and Ray made our first day memorable. He was very knowledgeable, answered out questions... All 300 oh them 😁 We really enjoyed the sites, the variety of food to try, and all the things we learned from Ray about the locals, the area, the food and more.

Thanks Vaughan, Great to hear you enjoyed your first trip to Guangzhou. Ray grew up in Guangzhou, there is no substitute for true local knowledge. The more questions the better, Guangzhou is an awesome city that people should know more about. We hope we have inspired you to come visit Guangzhou again. Those restaurants were just the tip of the iceberg! regards Wai

Thank you Allison for your review. The seafood market is quite remarkable, with a huge range of fish and shellfish for sale (most of them stored in tanks, still swimming). We have even seen whole live crocodiles there. Definitely one of our favourite places to go in Guangzhou. Maggie is a fantastic licensed guide, and there is no better way to see Guangzhou than with a true local cantonese guide. We hope to see you in Guangzhou again. regards Wai

Although we are not new to Guangzhou, it is not easy to navigate in this city and find good places to eat. Adding to it lack of information online, you are basically on your own trying to find out about the local cuisine. We were so happy to take this tour. It was amazing.
