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.

WOW. What an incredible experience. Sean was amazing ,he helped me overcome my fears on my 1st ever hike. Very knowledgeable about Hong Kong and its history. Phenomenal experience. A bight moment a bright memory on my journey through life. Thank you for this Amazing experience.

Well worth the cost, I’d pay the money just for the views… perfectly clear day, could see the whole bay and beyond, the food was also excellent, the veggie option which I had was tasty and an excellent coffee

The tour guide was very nice.. he know lots of HK hiking trails..I was very enjoying hiking with him. I will definitely join him again next time.

Very useful to see and to learn about the city of Hong Kong but unfortunately it was very fogy we couldn’t see anything with the train on top
