"She wants to tell her clients stories, whether they are walking through Sheung Wan's busy dried seafood street, or in Fanling's historic walled villages. She takes local expats out of their bubble of bars and junk trips to see the real Hong Kong."
[Daisann's] knowledge of Cantonese food is dizzying...It is a type of "authentic" experience that is exceedingly hard to arrange with just a guidebook.
“She has taken the head legal counsel for a top international corporation to a session of the Nancy Kissel murder trial at the High Court, arranged whirlwind local eating tours for foodies, and curated private dinners for groups to explain HK’s intricately layered food culture.”
I hate the idea of being led around by someone holding a flag or umbrella. Instead, I want an expert to help me understand a new area, but in a way that’s much more personal. This is what Little Adventures in Hong Kong achieves and so much more.
"Award-winning travel writer and New York native Daisann McLane came to Hong Kong in 2001, since then becoming a local fixture with one of our favourite travel consultancies Little Adventures in Hong Kong, offering local intelligence, food experiences and private walks."
Little Adventures in Hong Kong offers tailored private tours that allow you to plunge into the everyday life of public housing estates, street markets and the city’s oldest neighbourhoods. Its food tours are especially notable...you are in good hands."
"McLane speaks in rapid fire Cantonese to our server, ordering something from each section of the menu–fried, baked, steamed–plus a few sweets for dessert. I had always considered myself somewhat of a dim sum expert. But early into our lunch…I feel like a novice. Cantonese roast pork, shrimp dumplings bursting with flavor…this is a revelation.”
Best Cantonese food of my life! Amazing roast meats at hole-in-the-wall. Brilliant job!
"While many relocation services provide services for wealthy expatriate families, including finding private schools and hiring domestic helpers, Little Adventures in Hong Kong shows expats different neighbourhoods, the best places to eat, drink and shop, and explains Hong Kong history in a way that relates to what their clients are experiencing."
"Little Adventures in Hong Kong made one recent client 'Anthony Bourdain for the day', guiding him to the best roast duck and roast goose."
