What you’ll do

You’ll spend a glorious day exploring with one of our friendly Hong Kong hosts by your side.

Depending on what you’d most like to see in the city, they’ll whip up an itinerary to tickle your fancy, taking in iconic sites as well as obscure local spots they’re dying to show you.

By following your feet, you’ll be treated to a slice of local life in this immense city of contrast.

You could explore a popular neighborhood and see what you find or alternatively, you might like to ride the Ngong Ping 360, a cable car that promises staggering views over the cityscape.

We just love the heritage infused into every aspect of life in this city, and we’re sure you will, too.

You could walk along Dragon’s Back, named by Time magazine to be one of the world’s best urban hikes! How do they know, we wonder? Have they hiked them all?

Whatever you’d like from Hong Kong, be it partaking in a Tai Chi class at a nearby park or taking a beautiful cruise through the harbor on a traditional Chinese junk boat, your host will make it happen.

It’s their superpower and our pleasure.

Wonderful comprehensive tour of Hong Kong!

My lovely guide Lulu was amazing, taking me to iconic Hong Kong landmarks, as well as showing me different sides of this incredible city off the beaten path, great hidden gems of food places, treasures of clothing boutiques, street markets and very interesting places in general. She was very knowledgeable about everything from HK history to shopping, kept a great pace with and took fantastic pictures which are memories of a lifetime. An absolute must do tour in Hong Kong! Five Stars!!!!!

Hidden Gems Hong Kong Tour

Possibly the best single day tour experience my wife and I have ever had and we have travelled a lot. An 8 hour intense overview of HK and Kowloon with the addition of archival pictures that Victor (Cheung) brought with him. We walked away with a solid feel and understanding of the history and the current day challenges. We did the usual tour stuff for first timers including the Star Ferry and the Peak Tram but then we spread our wings throughout the city, walking as much as 10K during the day. I seriously have not had a similar experience of really feeling we walked away with an incredible bank of new knowledge in just 8 hours. Victor is a pleasure to work with and a very sweet kid (27 years old) but don't let his young age fool you - he has A LOT of info to give and in a way that you don't feel overloaded. His English is impeccable with hardly any accent, surprising since he has not lived outside of HK except for a brief mission to Mexico. All in all, it was just a great day.
