We had 3 days in Hong Kong and despite having some difficulty getting places and doing things because of the riots the food tour still went on. It was the best thing we did. It was fantastic. Our guide William did not stop talking, he was simply wonderful. We tried every type of food that I wouldn’t have known to buy and went to places we never would have stopped in. We learnt about the history and the people’s culture from 400 years ago to modern times. You’re missing out if you don’t do this tour.

You will not find a more enthusiastic ambassador for her neighborhood than Yan is for Mongkok. I would describe the experience as a neighborhood tour with nine delicious food stops along the way. She knew every shop owner and explained the history and significance of their stores or products. And, most importantly, she has great taste in food. The goose to start and tea to finish were my highlights, but everything in between was excellent as well. We took a 2pm tour and then took the star ferry tour around the harbor as the sun went down. If you’re staying island side it is well worth the trip for the tour. The neighborhood was quieter than normal because of the decline in tourism, which was great for us, but sad to see for the local businesses. Hong Kong is totally safe, much safer than most American cities, even with the protests. It’s a shame to miss out on an experience like this because of unsubstantiated fears.

We enjoyed our tour very much. Went to many places that we would not have ventured to on our own. A few of the foods weren’t to my taste, but we felt we had a very authentic experience.

We thoroughly enjoyed this interesting and eye-opening walking tour. Our guide, Wiliam, was brilliant, well-informed and helpful. He offered informative comments on everything. The duck, dim sum and baked dessert was excellent and the other food, although a bit strange,representative of Hong Kong food culture. This tour is highly recommended! This tour is highly recommended

William was a great tour guide who went above and beyond to show me a great time in Mongkok. He explained the history of the area and made sure I was comfortable. I was able to sample all sorts of delicious foods and meet some local neighbourhood characters. Highly recommended tour!
