About Little Adventures in Hong Kong Food and Walking Tours - Day Tour
Go beyond tours. Come with us on a private, personal walking and food experience that gets you inside Hong Kong. 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.

We did a private street food tour with Daisann and it was the best experience. So knowledgeable and obviously passionate about the Hong Kong way of life. Proud to have the opportunity to learn so much about the history, food and culture. It was exactly what we were after and the food was oh so delicious! Thank you so much.

ISLAND LIFE with Daisann started at Pier 6 and proceeded by ferry to Peng Chau Island. On the way and throughout the day we had great conversations with Daisann about culture, politics and Island Life. After a snack and some hibiscus tea we made our way walking around the island. Although it was a little humid, we had some great views we would have never got in HK. We ended up with a taste of local Dim Sum and a ferry ride back to HK. Got to get on the water, different perspective. Daisann is a very respectful, personable and experienced guide. ESSENTIAL HK WALK with Yvonne got right into the pace of Hong Kong life. We visited the neighborhoods of Central Hong Kong (Soho, Sheun Wan, etc.) When we weren’t walking and visiting local food markets and temples, we spent time in the various “sitting areas” discussing Yvonne’s perspective of history, the British influence and of course food. From Sun Yat-Sen to Stanley Ho’s four wives and the current protests in HK we covered a ton of subjects. The iced HK milk tea and the Wonton Noddles for lunch were Hong Kong originals. All in all it was great fun! Thanks Daisann and Yvonne. Hope to see you next trip! Mike and Janet Blume

I took a four-hour walking tour that included a dim sum lunch. My guide was Yvonne, who is both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about Hong Kong, its history, and its food. We walked around areas that gave me a feel for "old Hong Kong," which I found much more interesting than seeing all the giant apartment buildings and upscale shopping malls on the Kowloon side. She chose a great place for lunch, with delicious dim sum. I would love to try other Little Adventures in Hong Kong tours in the future.

This was our first trip to Hong Kong and the first time we booked a guide. The moment I met Yvonne I felt completely relaxed and ready for a Hong Kong adventure. Yvonne has this amazing dry intelligent sense of humour topped with an endless knowledge of the historical and current aspects of Hong Kong. We were adamant about taking our usual mode of transportation in Hong Kong which was an Uber or taxi during the tour, but Yvonne politely encouraged us to take public transportation. Of course she was right and the trains (MTR - Mass Transit Railway) by the way run every 2-3 minutes during the day and 7 minutes in the evening. We began the tour feeling like a local. As we went up the incredibly fast escalator in the train station, Yvonne informed us that the custom in Hong Kong is to stand to the right of the escalator. So if you want to mix with locals it’s also good to respect the norms and we did with pleasure. Well, being the foodies we all were - we decided to start the tour with a light authentic lunch. And Yvonne did not disappoint. She took us to the top fish ball and noodle place while the owner watched over us to make sure we finished everything :)))). Yvonne also made sure to politely remind us to try to finish all the fish balls otherwise the owner will ask her why we didn’t like the food. The fish balls and noodles were homemade and the restaurant was packed. We were also the only tourists in the place. Yvonne continued to explain that texture is a very important element and so you could choose from 2 types of fresh noodles. We didn’t have any difficulty finishing everything on our plate accompanied by Milk Tea. We continued our day as we crossed the street to visit a 200 year old temple and Yvonne was very respectful of our presence within the temple. There are many temples throughout Hong Kong and worth a discrete visit. Next stop was the open market. Wow - if you have never been to this type of food market it’s quite a treat. You will see several types of food being offered for sale and the fresher the better. Don’t be surprised if the fish is still moving - the locals like to make sure it’s fresh. Absolutely nothing goes to waste in Hong Kong. A sweet treat that is not to be missed in Hong Kong was the homemade street waffles. They are made fresh in front of you and we savoured every bite. One observation that we continually made throughout our day was the vitality of the elderly in Hong Kong. They have places called “sit outs” - this is a park like setting so that the elderly can socialize with their friends and bring their birds in cages of course. They were literally passing us in their jogging clothes and would casually glance over at us with a big smile. They were going to keep living their lives as healthy as they can and it was more than inspiring to watch. What really made our overall experience unforgettable wasn’t the fish ball soup with homemade noodles, the 200 year old temple, the outdoor market or the amazing homemade waffle - it was Yvonne. Yvonne is one of the nicest and funniest people we met in Hong Kong. We talked and walked throughout the day about everything. I will continue to remember our discussions and laughter made better simply because of Yvonne. We miss Yvonne but I know we will see you again!!!! Kung Hei Fat Choi or Gong Xi Fa Cai & Hong Bao Na Lai Until next time Yvonne.

My friend and I had spent the previous day with our original tour group and had seen the major sites. Yvonne met us at our hotel and took us around the neighborhood pointing out places that we might want to revisit (great suggestion for dinner) and gave us a tour of the local market area. Then she took us by tram down to Central Hong Kong and walked us all over, pointing out local landmarks and telling us their backstories. We had lunch at little noodle shop that was inexpensive and delicious. At the end she showed us how to use the subway to get back to our hotel as well as making suggestion on where we might go for the rest of our stay and how to get there by subway. Our walking tour turned out to be much more than we expected and enhanced our time in Hong Kong. We greatly enjoyed our time with Yvonne
