We are 4 adults who went on a good tour in Hong Kong hosted by Mark. Mark kept in touch with me prior to the trip, and gave us options to think about. We met Mark at 10:00 am so he took us to a place where we had Hong Kong French toast and a wonderful bun with butter (doesn’t sound too exciting but both dishes were delicious and something we had never tried before. Then we had some street food which was fish balls and octopus. The fish balls weren’t our favorite food but the octopus was yummy. Then we were off to dim sum and another taste feast. Finally we went out for bubble tea which was another first for us. Thank you Mark for a memorable day in Hong Kong. Mark was fun and entertaining. He kept us smiling and laughing the whole way. I highly recommend Mark and this food tour.

What a fantastic time. I booked on a different tour, which cancelled due to low numbers, but when I rebooked on this one I was pleasantly surprised that I was the only person on the tour. Sandy, my guide, was lovely. Full of conversations and explaining everything and everywhere that I went. Encouraging me to try new and exotic dishes (Chicken foot soup). Helping me understand how things are made, where items are imported from and even allowed me venture into a kitchen, and behind the scenes of a live market. All really interesting and would thoroughly recommend this.

I had a great time with my local tour guide. I sent some sights that I wanted to see to the guide in advance, and he mapped out our time together. He told my the ins and outs of the area, and it really felt like an immersive experience. I would recommend this tour highly!

Evangeline was the perfect host. We walked in the town a lot, took the metro to Kowloon and visited the Peak. Definitely worth having a guide for us as we were only in HK for a day and a half and we used the time well.

Ben was great, very helpful and really tried hard to make sure we hadvthe best experience according to our individual needs.
