Guide was knowledgeable, friendly and great. He was well prepared and ensured our food restrictions were taken care of while still ensuring we tried various things. He also was patient and willing to stop and entertain all our questions enroute

Sinclair was one of the best tour guide that I have had in all the years of my travel. My wife and I and son and joyed his tour as well as his understanding of all things food and the surrounding areas. We were involved with part of the disturbance while in Hong Kong and Sinclair was able to get us out of harms way and safe. I would recommend him again in an instant!

I have done food tours all across Asia and this by far is the best one. It was well coordinated, our guide was very knowledgeable, well spoken, and fun. The food was amazing and he took us to Michelin Star places you would never find on your own. I highly recommend this tour.
