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.

Emcee was a great host, very knowledgeable about the little restaurants and stalls that serve great food but which without her advice you would not try yourself. The tour showed us a side of Hong Kong we would not have seen -night markets, local temples and gardens, chess players with many advisers watching, and so on. Two and half hours well spent and then we had the new year fireworks. What could be better?

Meandered through the markets with my fantastic guide, Armie, tasting a century egg pastry & the juicy pan fried pork bun among other things. So memorable!

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.

Edward is a friendly and knowledgeable travel expert who knows how to explore the hidden treasures of the city. He has a knack to know what you want to see and experience and will skilfully deliver it to your satisfaction. Nothing is too much for Edward and he is certainly one of the very best we have had so far.
