We had a wonderful time with Virginia! Our family only had a quick afternoon in Hong Kong and wanted to make the most of it. Virginia was able to accommodate our schedule, hitting highlights both in Hong Kong and Kowloon, and giving us an experience as only a local can. She was especially kind to our 9 year old son and found plenty to keep him engaged and entertained. I wish we had a whole week to spend with her and see everything!

Our tour with Virginia was fantastic! It was much more than just a food tour - a cultural experience and history lesson as well. Even though we have lived in HK for many years, we still discovered and learnt so much. Virgina is so knowledgeable and informative, and the food choices were on point! We went to some unique places where the food is still hand made in the traditional way, which is important in a world where so much of what we eat is mass produced. Highly recommend her tour for any visitor to HK, or even if you've been a local for many years. Simply one of the best food and cultural tours we've done in years.

I am a food traveler if there ever was one. I pick my destinations based on the food and spend months thinking about what and where to eat. So, I am usually hesitant to book food tours because I feel like I can do it better. But Virginia found amazing places and provided context that I could not have easily found on my own. She was super responsive, friendly, and amazing to eat with. I love that she picked places specific to our needs and that the itinerary was easy to follow. My partner and I are in our late 20s and thought she was super engaging and knowledgeable. If you are a foodie, book this tour! I am usually disappointed by food tours because we eat too much or the food spots aren't that impressive ...but Virginia picked amazing spots and took care to make sure we would have lots of room! She is a gem in plain sight and I feel so lucky to have toured with her. My partner and his family are from Hong Kong and they didn't even have recommendations as good as she did! Do make a private tour and enjoy.

Virginia gave my family (with two children 5 and 11) a wonderful customised full day tour of Hong Kong combining food and sightseeing. We did so many wonderful things with excellent and easy guidance from Virginia making it all super easy. The dim sum lunch, peak views and fortune telling at the temple were highlights.
Highly recommended.

Eating our way around HK with Virginia was probably THE highlight of our trip. Food brings people together, and nowhere is that more apparent than in Virginia’s Food Tour. Not only do you get to eat at some of HK’s best (and mostly hidden, non-mainstream) food spots, but you also get to experience the hows and whys of HK’s food culture; a small glimpse of HK everyday life through food. It honestly didn’t feel like a tour at all. It felt more like a longtime friend enthusiastically showing you around her hometown, her favorite city. That’s the best kind.

Virginia is the best guide.
I joined her bespoke private tour, because in August she does not provide group tour, the heat is unbearable (that is coming from a tropical person who go out in the sun daily).
She actually had scheduled food and sight, but since I was more interested in food, so she showed me 7 food places and 2 wet markets.
She was very accomodating. She advised me on sayings about allergies in Cantonese.
All the food places she showed were cash or Octopus Card only. But the food were good and lasted 2 days without refrigiration.

The process of having Virginia as our tour guide could not have been easier despite all the mistakes I made on my end for our group of 26 people. She easily turned our 15 hour layover in Hong Kong into memories we'll never forget!

We had unknowingly been sitting next to her as she waited for us at our arrival gate with a huge smile on her face with her just as smiley and lovely assistant. She had a jam packed day ready for us and always ensured that each and every person in our group was accounted for and having a blast.

Hong Kong humidity and heat is no joke - since we're all from the Pacific Islands we thought we could handle it, but it took its toll on us throughout the tour lol.

We started off with the tram ride to The Peak. The views were absolutely breathtaking! It was a clear day, and we could see the cityscape below, surrounded by lush greenery. The tram ride itself was fun and a must-do experience.

During the tour, we also visited Wong Tai Sin Temple, which was a serene and spiritual experience. Virginia provided us with some interesting insights into the history and traditions of the temple, making the visit all the more meaningful. Everyone was excited to learn what Zodiac animal they were and had fun taking photos next to them.

For those who wanted to do some shopping and enjoy the blissful aircon, Temple Mall North was right next door. The variety of shops available here is unparalleled. Whether you're a fashionista, tech enthusiast, or someone looking for unique souvenirs, Temple Mall North has it all. From high-end luxury boutiques to trendy streetwear stores, you'll find an array of choices to cater to every taste and budget.

Going on the Star Ferry ride is an absolute must-do! This iconic ferry service offers not just a mode of transport but an enchanting journey that captures the essence of this vibrant city. The ride across Victoria Harbour provided breathtaking panoramas of both the city's modern architecture and its charming historical landmarks. As the ferry glided gracefully through the calm waters, we couldn't help but marvel at the contrast between the towering skyscrapers and the traditional junk boats floating by.

Now, onto the most important part – food! We had lunch at Tim Ho Wan, and it was fantastic. It was ALL DELICIOUS!!! BBQ Pork buns, shrimp dumplings, sticky rice, Siu mai, chicken feet and much more. Such an amazing dim sum experience with authentic food that left our taste buds dancing with joy for both new and experienced Chinese food lovers.

I can not thank Virginia and her assistant enough for the amount of patience, time and effort they had put into the planning and managing of this tour. It's not always easy chaperoning 26 adults who are on their first long haul experience. We decided to end our tour a little bit early as everyone was not only knackered from hopping off an 11 hour flight, but the humidity and heat did a number on us. She was flexible with our decisions and constantly made sure we were comfortable. If you're looking for a guided tour in Hong Kong with a mix of sightseeing, cultural experiences, and delicious food, Virginia at Humid with a Chance of Fishballs Tours would be the best decision you've ever made!

Sending you heaps of love from Ngā Uri o Whiti Te Rā Mai Le Moana Trust <3

We saw a YouTube video with Anthony Bourdain eating typhoon shelter crab on a sempan, then we found Humid with a chance of fishballs so took the chance of booking. It was a really amazing experience! You start at Causeway Bay where the great guide Virginia took us to the tram via a shoe bashing ritual under the bridge. We have never seen that before and it was fun. We hopped on the tram then a short trip later were walking to Victoria Harbour typhoon shelter. The water taxi came and we were sitting on our private sampan where we were served a multi course feast. Seriously the best typhoon shelter crab, and the other dishes were amazing too. Virginia was great, she asked if we wanted privacy but she is great company and we were happy for her to give us the history of each dish, and of the people who used o live on boats in this harbour (some still do). Virginia is great and we were so fortunate to have her guide us through a wonderful dinner. I really recommend Virginia and Humid With A Chance Of Fishballs, to both tourists and locals who want to explore the inside of our city!

We met Virginia outside of a subway exit this morning to begin our dim sum guided luncheon. She was on time with a big smile on her face and excited to help us experience what is considered by many a classic dim sum lunch.

Since Virginia is Canadian born Chinese her English is impeccable which helped us in our conversations as we learned more about each other and about many of the cultural traditions in Hong Kong.

The restaurant was a short walk from our meeting point. I somehow felt transported back in time as I looked around the dining area with the servers pushing their dim sum carts up and down the isles, stopping at the tables, and dropping off their delicious wares with their patrons.

Virginia told us all about the traditional customary dim sum lunch and explained the various dishes available. She showed us how to wash our cups, bowls, chopsticks and spoon are using hot water provided at our table in a traditional manner.

She explained how to steep the tea properly and how to serve it to one another, thanking the pourer with an age old tradition of tapping two fingers on the table.

Once bowls and chopsticks were clean and ready and our cups of tea were poured we begin to explore the wonderful world of dim sum!

Frankly, I cannot recall precisely the names of the various dishes we were served, but they were all so very, very delicious! The dumplings were rich and flavorful with filings made from pork and chicken and shrimp and other delicious stuffings.

Virginia guided us through the various offerings each step of the way with an explanation of what we were enjoying. She also pointed out intricacies about our surroundings telling us about the locals who traditionally enjoy their dim sum lunch and how the entire process works. For someone only familiar with traditional American restaurants this was quite an eye-opener for us and a marvelous learning experience.

I wholeheartedly recommend Virginia and her guided dim sum lunch experience! The food was phenomenal, the ambience memorable, and Virginia made the whole thing simply spectacular! In fact, I would endorse any tour which Virginia provides because she is a fun, professional and engaging hostess!
