"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.”
[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.
"All the Chinatown meals in the world had not prepared me for my customized food tour with Little Adventures in Hong Kong."
"Little Adventures in Hong Kong made one recent client 'Anthony Bourdain for the day', guiding him to the best roast duck and roast goose."
"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."
"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."
Best Cantonese food of my life! Amazing roast meats at hole-in-the-wall. Brilliant job!
"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."
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.
