Virginia is amazing. The whole experience was intense and but so satisfying. I've never quite tried anything that came close to it. Must try!
With such a varied culinary scene, it’s often hard to ensure you’re eating the best food Hong Kong has to offer. Guarantee some of the city’s best dim sum on a small-group food tour, ideal for lovers of Chinese cuisine. In a small group limited to 10, you’ll visit one of the most notable dim sum parlours in Hong Kong and sample local delicacies from a menu of more than 30 dim sum.
Noted as one of the 'top 10' things to do in Hong Kong, Old Hong Kong style dim sum is not so much of a food tour, as it is trying a new experience. Often thought of as Chinese tapas, dim sum, are small dishes meant to be shared around the table and is the epitome of Hong Kong food.
It's about a 5 minute walk to the traditional dim sum parlour and it makes no concession to modernity or English speakers, so be prepared for pantomime. Fear not: your guide will be there every step of the way, making sure you know what you’re eating and that you have plenty of dim sum and tea.
Not only will you eat dim sum, but you'll learn how to look for your own seat and wash your own dishes. Learn what classic tea pairing is with dim sum and how to get food. Hear about the history, traditions, and culture of yum cha. The dim sum lunch is included. There is no set menu, but there are around 30 different dimsum varieties that we can choose from on any given day. Experience pouring tea from an old teapot (it’s a lot harder than you think) and enjoy bottomless Chinese tea to accompany your lunch. Tour will end at approximately 1pm. Your guide can walk you back to the Central MTR station or give you directions to the Sheung Wan MTR station.
What a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend this. The food and tea was delicious and the history behind it all made it so interesting. There’s no way you would get the same experience if you tried to to this without Virginia. A “must do”...More

Great time with Virginia...she was very informative and I learned so much on this tour and of course ate delicious dim sum in an authentic atmosphere! I wouldn’t have known what to do had I gone by myself! Highly recommend her!
I absolutely loved this experience! The atmosphere was exciting, the food was delicious, and our guide taught us so much about Hong Kong history and culture! I would have never been able to visit this place on my own, as it is an old and...More
