It's raining, is the tour still on?
Yes, our tours continue in the rain except under Hong Kong Red / Black storm warning or Typhoon signal 8 or above. The course may be modified to allow for the weather. Please bring your own umbrella or rain coat and closed shoes, as we will need to walk outdoors. In the unlikely event of needing to cancel a tour due to bad weather, a decision will be made at 11am on the day of the tour.
How early should I arrive for the tour?
We recommend that you are in the general vicinity of the meeting point 5 - 10 minutes prior to the scheduled starting time. We aim to commence our tours on time. If you are more than 10 minutes late you will be considered a no show and the tour will commence without you. Guides may use their discretion not to wait for late customers if there is a large group of participants that were all early for the tour. If you are running late please contact your guide directly.
Can you do customised experiences?
Yes! Maybe you want someone to help you order a fine dining seafood experience, or you might just want to be shown around the area you are staying in. Send us an email and we can work something out.

Yes, children are welcome. There is no charge for infants 4 years and under. From 5 – 12 years we offer a discounted price and for ages 13+ there is no discount. Please advise us in advance if your are bringing a baby with a stroller. Thank you.
If you are travelling as a family with several children over the age of 12, contact us for a special family price.
Am I expected to give the guide a tip?
Whilst your tour guide would certainly appreciate a tip, there is no expectation to tip your guide.
Can I book a private tour?
Our food tours in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Guangzhou are operated as small group tours. If you would like us to run one of these tours for you as a private tour, we will do our best accommodate you, please email us for details.
In Hong Kong, in addition to our small group food tours, we offer Private Walking Tours of Hong Kong. These are sightseeing and culture tours that can be customised for your interests and are not specifically foods tours (although we are always happy to show you where to eat!).
Is the food safe?
The health of participants is of utmost importance to us. We understand the importance of eating safe and clean food. We frequent restaurants that have high turn over and serve hot fresh food. We suggest that you only eat food that you are comfortable with and ensure your hands are clean before eating. All participants eat at their own risk.
