This tour exceeded expectations! Our guide Mel was extremely knowledgeable and not only well-versed in the food portion of the tour, but also about the various sites and other points of interest discussed on the tour. He was engaging and enthusiastic - a real pleasure to spend a half day with!

We've lived here for more than 7 years and yet we learned a lot about Hong Kong Island's food history and character, as well as its unique and interesting backstreets and areas of historical significance. The food was fabulous - make sure you come hungry!

We had a wonderful tour with Sinclair! He gave us an incredible, thoughtful, and delicious food tour, while also teaching us so much about Hong Kong history and culture. Sinclair helped introduce us to so many elements of life in HK, and helped us get our bearings on the island. He also graciously gave us ideas and recommendations for the remainder of our trip. Sinclair is extremely friendly, wonderfully communicative, and high energy. We would recommend his tour to anyone looking to learn more about this beautiful city. Thank you Sinclair!

We had 2 days in Hong Kong and the BEST thing we did was a private food tour with Sinclair Yung! He introduced us to Dim Sum, the "proper" way to eat rice noodles, tea, and pork along with teaching us so much about Hong Kong's culture. We toured neighborhoods, rode on a "ding ding" (cable bus) and throughly enjoyed our experience and all the food, tea-try the Ying Yang, and people we met along the way! I would recommend calling Sinclair anytime you are in Hong Kong and taking the time to get to know the food and culture! Thank you Sinclair!

Our small group met our guide Karen for a relaxed and enjoyable food tour. We went to all the prescribed stops and she also helped us understand more about the city not just the food culture. Right from the very start she made us feel comfortable and went out of her way to let us explore areas that were of interest. We felt that it was time and money well spent.

I took my mother to Hong Kong for a few days over Chinese New Year. A workmate, who knows I love food and mixing it with locals, highly recommended that I did a food tour with Hello Hong Kong. In fact, he insisted.

As I was with my Mum, who is nearly 80, we decided to do a private tour. I asked if it was doable with her in a wheelchair? The answer was yes. Actually all communication was great. Clear, they had all the answers...

The day of the tour Mel met us at the hotel, we jumped in a cab and off we went!

He guided us through the island, taking us to the most remarkable eateries. Explaining the history of each stop, the food, the people. He answered all our questions food related and not!

We did two Michelin star rated eateries with no waiting, or booking in the one day!

Mel was also a great help with Mum, assisting us with the wheelchair... just a really kind, considerate guy. After the tour he sent us both an email recapping the day and what we ate, a nice touch. So much information, it has been a great point of reference since.

We had a brilliant 5 hours. I highly recommend Hello Hong Kong and their private food tour.

We absolutely LOVED our food tour with MEL in mid-December. We started at 9:30AM and since all of the protests have scared off tourists, it ended up being a private tour. We met MEL outside a Starbucks in the main downtown area on HKI and then he started with a brief history of China’s food culture. I loved that he continued to reference this overview throughout the tour. Our first stop was a traditional dim sum restaurant and proved to be our favorite spot! Mel took care of ordering, based on our preferences, and showed us customary traditions for eating and helped us with some chopstick basics :) we then went through some of the fried seafood markets and Mel told us a lot about Chinese medicine traditions. We stopped at a local candy shop and had a tea ceremony - if you go here, buy some tea! We regretted not doing so later...the tea was SO good! Then we visited Mak’s noodle and really enjoyed hearing about the Mak family and their restaurants around the island. The soup was not our favorite, but enjoyed the ambiance and history. We then went through some of the mid-level elevators to get ‘lady’s stocking tea’ and egg tarts! Really enjoyed both and learning about the Hong Kong history of each snack! Mel then took us through some traditional markets which were amazing. All of the fruits and vegetables looked incredible. We then ended with some BBQ pork in Wan Chai - this place was incredibly authentic and we stuck out like a sore thumb, but I loved being there. A place we wouldn’t have tried without Mel, but we’re so glad to experience it. I would absolutely recommend this experience while in Hong Kong as it is something we’re still talking about weeks after our trip!!!
