“Terrific tour of central (victoria) and food in hong kong, do your first day!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

This was a terrific tour of both the neighborhood and of food in hong kong. Should have done this the first day as I found myself wanting to return to all the places to sample more extensively. Sure you can find dim sum and roasted meats everywhere in hong kong, but understanding how to pick the better ones makes all the difference. Would highly recommend this to anyone and to do as early as possible on your trip will make your culinary experience for the whole trip better. It was even raining during most of the tour and don't regret it a bit.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 19, 2013

We are so happy we did this tour as it really helped point us in the right direction. All the stops we so delicious. The dim sum crispy BBQ bun was so good. My husband and I went back to 2 of the places as well as stopped by one of the referred restaurants. We highly recommend doing this tour especially at the beginning of your trip. You will not regret it!!

“Great way to start your stay in Hong Kong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

My husband & I did this tour on our last day in Hong Kong & wished we had done it at the start. Like all the recent reviews Silvana was very enthusiastic and with clear insight into the local food scene. The food was of a high standard and also a great variety. I now know not to pour boiling water on my green tea and what dim sum should really taste like. I would recommend booking well in advance as the day we did the tour it was completely full.

“Great insight in to local places to eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2013

Silvana was as great as we had read about on other reviews. Her local knowledge is fantastic and her ongoing commentary just what first timers to HK need.The food is great from the 1st Noodle Shop just down from the meeting point to the Sugar Cane juice to the Crispy BBQ Pork Buns.We learnt about tea, things that all of us never knew and have taken home with us. I will never eat another steamed BBQ Pork Bun. If you do the Central & Sheung Wan Tour, hang out for the BBQ Buns!! You will be fighting over the crumbs. I loved standing in the street amongst the locals sipping, Cane Juice, ambiance, we eat and drink with all our senses. Silvana also passes on some great local history, I just hope the old guy in the barber shop at the bottom of the stairs is open when you go? Go on the tour it is well worth it!! Next time we will try the other tour over Kowloon side.

“Authentic Hong Kong”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2013

What a memorable afternoon we spent, walking the little, back streets of Hong Kong Central on the Central/Sheung Wan tour. Silvana made the experience come alive with her friendly and knowledgable way. The food was excellent, just the right mix and quantity. The tour took us to an interesting array of traditional eating places and all at a leisurely pace that allowed for everyones questions on the way. Our group of eight seemed just the right size in the busy streets and the temperature was perfect. A reasonable amount of walking up and down hills is involved so go on this tour with that in mind. We really enjoyed it, however those less mobile might find this a challenge, especially in humid weather.
Some of these places may well disappear in the years to come as real estate prices continue to rise. If you want to experience the authentic food of Hong Kong today and catch a glimpse of the past then this is a great tour. Thanks Silvana, for adding to the richness of our visit to this vibrant city.
