Great local food tour. We were lucky enough to be the only 3 on the tour. Alex, (English name) our guide, was very friendly and gave good extra information about local sites and locations. The food was all excellent local dishes, you certainly want to be hungry when you start.

The guide was very competent and friendly, she told us a lot about the local food and also a few things about China Town, the dishes tasted interesting to very tasty. All in all a successful tour

Very interesting and fun!

Alex is very nice and explained a lot to us. His English is easy to understand and the food was delicious. We would never have found our way in Chinatown alone. Absolutely to suggest!

Good tour, mainly China Town, knowledgable guide, but more than a taster. A more direct route to finding things if short on time. Mona was a good guide

Wonderful Tour Guide! Excellent food in places you would never even find as a tourist!
