Private Food Tour

Hong Kong’s food culture is vibrant and varied, but sometimes the choice of what’s on offer can be a little overwhelming. Hong Kong Greeters can help you navigate the highlights of Cantonese cuisine, which form the cornerstone of dishes available at restaurants, homes and street-side cheap-eat vendors. Visiting Hong Kong and enjoying some of the foodie delights with a knowledgeable guide will enable you to sample foods that you cannot find anywhere else.

A food tour with Hong Kong Greeters will give you the opportunity to sample the varied cuisines available, including noodles, egg waffles, snake soup, dim sum and much, much more! We know that street food can sometimes be a little daunting, so a food tour gives you the opportunity to try foods and visit restaurants and cafes that have been tested out by the Hong Kong Greeters team.

Eating Cantonese food with one of our expert guides will help you not only try new dishes, but also understand more about how important food is to Hong Kong’s culture. There are few places in the world with such a vibrant dining scene, and a tour with Hong Kong Greeters gives you the opportunity to eat like a local, discover hidden away foodie locations and understand more about the history of the food scene in the city.

We look forward to eating with you!

Sham Shui Po Food Tour

One of our favourite things to do is to discover a neighbourhood through its food! You can delve into the vibrant and busy district of Sham Shui Po, which is famous for being packed with businesses selling everything from electronics to fabrics, from toys to fashion and much more besides. Let our guides show you the highlights of both the shopping opportunities and the food, including cheung fan (rice noodle rolls), fresh coconut juice and even Michelin starred dim sum. And for those who really want to try something adventurous, let us take you to a snake soup cafe – it is surprisingly delicious! Some of the other highlights are a visit to the local wet market and Mei Ho House Public Housing Museum.

Mong Kok Food Tour

Alternatively, we can incorporate a shopping trip to the busy markets of Mong Kok such as the flower, bird and goldfish streets, whilst sampling a delicious pineapple bun, or take a pause to devour some dim sum washed down with milk tea. Other unmissable highlights include the famous Cantonese egg tarts, fishballs, egg waffles, which are available from street-side vendors, and if you are feeling brave, you can even dig into some stinky tofu – it has the name for a reason!

Causeway Bay & Wan Chai Food Tour

The area of Wan Chai, on Hong Kong Island, is rapidly changing. New apartment blocks are appearing rapidly, and the area is gentrifying. Although traditional businesses are being pushed out by new international restaurants and cafes, it is still a fascinating area to explore both for shopping, culture and food. Our guides will take you to discover the ubiquitous street food –  fish balls and egg waffles, plus wonton noodles, roasted meats and century egg. And even though not strictly Cantonese, a visit to Hong Kong would not be complete without sampling Xiao Long Bao (traditional steam buns originating in Shanghai). There are some other intriguing highlights thrown into this tour which includes such as the fantastic Noon Day Gun and the Canal Street Flyover villain-hitting ceremony.

Vegetarian Food Tour

Hong Kong is firmly on the world travellers’ map as a foodie destination, with every imaginable cuisine available in the city that never sleeps. To keep up with the demand from health-conscious tourists and residents of the city who are looking for vegetarian and vegan food options while they explore the city, we have created a private vegetarian food tour, several lesser-known historical and foodie destinations.

This is Hong Kong Night Tour

Hong Kong comes alive after 6pm – let me show you how and let’s have fun.

I always want you to get the most from Hong Kong and so will adapt the tour to suit you. There is something special about Hong Kong in the dark… my particular favourites are taking the Star Ferry and seeing the famous skyline shining bright (get your camera ready!)

However, there is so much more to see… we can visit the markets for their atmosphere, neon signage and bargains; put a curse on an enemy(!); test our luck on a race at the Happy Valley Race course*; have a very special foot massage; eat street food like a local; visit one of the famous and delicious novelty cafés; put a curse on your enemies; absorb the atmosphere whilst travelling along the longest outdoor escalator; have your fortune told and finish off by having a drink in an exclusive rooftop bar.

My evening tours are tailor-made, so if you have any specific wishes, it can absolutely be sorted for you.

Lantau Island

Lantau is known as Hong Kong’s green lung, and you can imagine stepping back in time 50 years when you visit. Most of this stunning island is untouched and can only be accessed by public transport. I will navigate you seamlessly through the highlights in this 8 hour private tour. Highlights include, a private car transfer from your accommodation to the cable-car, skip the line access at the cable-car (I am a licensed guide and so you will avoid the long lines), the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery and Tai O fishing village.

As an expert on the Buddhist faith, I will help you to understand the meanings of the stories that make this place so special, and how the teachings weave their way into Chinese culture and society on this experience. We will arrive by cable-car via skip-the-line access and enjoy the stunning and dramatic landscapes of Lantau on the 24-minute panoramic ride. Once we arrive to the top of the mountain, we will continue by foot to explore all corners of this uniquely different part of Hong Kong. Many times travellers visit this area as a first introduction to Buddhism, let me open it up for you! There are many things to see, but not that easy understand, such as Buddha’s story, a visit to the memory palace connected to the Big Buddha statue, and the word “emptiness” in relation to the faith – perhaps the most misunderstood word in Buddhism. I can also show you a hidden place where you will be able to “speak” directly to the Buddha. These are the things that you will not learn from a guide book.

This is an in-depth look at Tai O village. This is a must-see for anyone interested in visiting the real Hong Kong. This relaxing village is one of the best preserved places on Lantau, indeed the whole of Hong Kong, largely owing to the efforts of the local community… and a place to just really slow down. Situated at the end of the Pearl River Delta, where it meets the South China Sea, its history and culture are intrinsically linked to its geographical location. We will take a small boat ride to view the stilted houses for a close up look at how people live in this small enclave. There is a chance to view the Hong Kong- Macau – Zhuhai bridge from the open estuary and maybe a pink dolphin or two. Then we will visit the Tai O Heritage hotel, a former colonial police station which was converted in 2013. This has a story all on its own. Finally, we will wander through the market streets, say hello to the villagers who live there, and see all the home-made produce (much of which is linked to the preservation of fish).
