We are 4 adults who went on a good tour in Hong Kong hosted by Mark. Mark kept in touch with me prior to the trip, and gave us options to think about. We met Mark at 10:00 am so he took us to a place where we had Hong Kong French toast and a wonderful bun with butter (doesn’t sound too exciting but both dishes were delicious and something we had never tried before. Then we had some street food which was fish balls and octopus. The fish balls weren’t our favorite food but the octopus was yummy. Then we were off to dim sum and another taste feast. Finally we went out for bubble tea which was another first for us. Thank you Mark for a memorable day in Hong Kong. Mark was fun and entertaining. He kept us smiling and laughing the whole way. I highly recommend Mark and this food tour.

Great experience with great guide

We had a memorable experience in Hong Kong! Lulu showed us Streetfood and places where also locals are! We had a great day ! She also gave us advice for the following day where to go or not to go because of the protests. We always felt good and safe! A tour with Lulu is highly recommended
