Walks by professionals, not tour guides. Just three guests, maximum. There's no other company like us in Hong Kong, and we're proud to be recognized by the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Time Out, the Luxe Guide and the Chicago Tribune. If your time in Hong Kong is short, why waste a minute on a cookie-cutter group tour? Get personal, and learn about Hong Kong and what makes it tick from award winning professionals, food and travel journalists. We work with you to design a Hong Kong experience that's perfect for you. If you like culture and history, then it's back streets, hidden temples, old Chinese neighborhoods--even a haunted house! If you love Chinese food, then get ready to indulge, because that's our specialty. Hong Kong has tens of thousands of restaurants and noodle shops, but we've located all the best and we're sharing our secrets with you! (We speak and read Cantonese, so no worries about Chinese-only menus.). Whatever your profession or interest, we can craft a program that will give you the useful information and local intelligence you need to feel at home in Asia's most cosmopolitan city. Our director and your host, Daisann McLane, has unparalleled experience in finding and getting to the heart of the world's great places. She's an award winning travel journalist with National Geographic Traveler, and before that spent six years roaming the world as the New York Times' "Frugal Traveler" columnist. She fell in love with Hong Kong: she wants you to fall in love with this great city, too. « less

My travel-mate and I consider ourselves pretty knowledgable foodies (we're Brooklynites, haha), but had little idea where to begin in Hong Kong. After researching EXTENSIVELY online, we decided to go with Little Adventures, because between their website and reviews here it seemed like they really knew their stuff— and they seriously do! We booked 4 hours with them (Daniel was... More

We did the food tour with Janice, who is a lovely young woman with an impressive amount of knowledge, not just about Hong Kong food but also culture and society. As we wove our way through the streets, Janice introduced us to the different styles of Hong Kong food, from milk tea and buns to bitter herbal drinks. Although we... More

My expectations were high given the reviews in TripAdvisor. Initial contact with Daisann was very helpful and promising. Maybe it was that our tour occurred on a holiday, as apparently many of the guides were away/unavailable. I was assured that Johannes was a more than competent and very accomplished guide. He seemed to be a nice person upon meeting him,... More

We're extremely sorry your experience with us didn't meet your expectations. More than that, we feel terrible, as we take great pride in giving all our guests a superb experience of Hong Kong. We really wish you'd contacted us directly during your stay to let us know that you were unhappy so that we could have taken steps to rectify... More

We booked a tour with Little Adventures (Daniel was our guide) for our first morning on Hong Kong and we are so very glad we did. They put together a fantastic private tour which took into account our interests and desire to get to know Hong Kong. Not only that but we stopped at restaurants I'd have never known existed,...

Little Adventures is a rare gem. Founder Daisann McLean is an insightful, articulate and generous guide who knows the city like the back of her hand. An award-winning journalist, she fell in love with Hong Kong and has made it her home. Our half day spent with her, followed by another half day with her colleague Daniel Cheung, were absolutely...

This was an excellent choice and well worth the money for us. Daisann and her co-workers have put together a very thoughtful, flexible and enjoyable tour/discussion of Hong Kong that we strongly recommend. I wouldn't call this just a walking tour, or a food tour, but rather something like you might experience when a friend-of-a-friend decides to show you around... More

My mom, her friend, and I really enjoyed our tour with Daisann. She walked us around traditional markets and explained many interesting products there. We enjoyed tea and treats in a hole-in-the-wall cafe and a delicious dim sum lunch. The best part, however, was her knowledge of the city, including its history and current economic/political trends. Definitely added to our... More

I took my banking desk to HK for an offsite and decided to join Little Adventures for a walkabout. Even as Asians and frequent travellers to HK I wanted a different perspective from a hybrid individual like Daisann who can both impart a foreign and local flavour to my Singaporean charges. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much and my downside was... More

Our walk with Daniel was simply wonderful. It was an exciting adventure that gave us an insight into a Hong Kong that you need to leave the main streets to see and experience. Daniel's gentle manner was a blissful antidote to the noise and bustle, and when combined with his insightful guiding, it was a magical experience. And all that... More
