We had an excellent food tour with Jane! We went to multiple places and tried many types of food, including dim sum, spring rolls, buns, hot tea, won ton noodle soup, iced milk tea, roasted meat (pork) and an egg tart. Most of the places were Michelin-recommended and the food quality was excellent and plentiful! Jane also provided a great deal of interesting information related to Hong Kong and its people. Could not recommend enough!
