You’ll spend the day with one of our local hosts and choose which of Hong Kong’s top attractions you’d most like to see. Easy ask? We know it’s not, especially in a city as diverse, sleek and awe-inspiring as this.

That’s why we’re here to help - call us your fairy godmother. Perhaps you’d like to take a cruise in a traditional Chinese junk boat and gain a unique perspective of the world’s busiest port whilst enjoying the dramatic view of the cityscape beyond?

If it’s culture you’re after, fear not, for your host can take you to any number of lush gardens or scenic shrines and temples within the city. Hong Kong is filled with tranquil spots to escape the city’s fast face, from cable car rides and the Big Buddha, to a secret garden on top of Victoria Peak.

The famous sites are endless, but what will make your day so special is being able to share it with somebody that has authentic insight into the city’s culture and heritage. It will be like spending the day with a friend as you stop for lunch at a local dim sum restaurant, or visit the nearest street food market to eat as much as you can squeeze in!

The day is yours and the city awaits. Now, where shall we start?

  • Get to know the real Hong Kong with a host by your side

  • Your host will design a custom route for you which takes in the city's highlights, as well as some of the obscure local spots they think you’ll love

  • Discover the main attractions as well as some hidden gems that are tucked away nearby and avoid the tourist traps

  • Eat delicious traditional dishes at places that are loved by locals or from the most popular neighbourhood street food markets

  • Get tips from host for the rest of your stay in Hong Kong

Wonderful Hong Kong Experience

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our 6 hour tour with our delightful guide Lulu from City Unscripted. Lulu is young and enthusiastic, speaks fluent English and was very friendly and easy going. We were very pleased to leave the planning of the itinerary up to Lulu and she organised our time perfectly with a great mix of history, tourist spots, and sampling of food at places only frequented by locals. Not only did Lulu do a great job of showing us her city but she went above and beyond to provide us with helpful information and advice (via emails and phone calls) for restaurant recommendations and how best to avoid trouble spots with protesters and police during the unfortunate time of unrest in HK. Thanks to Lulu, our time in HK was most enjoyable and without incident. Thank you City Unscripted for facilitating a great tour with a great guide.

4 hours private tour

We had a 4 hours tour with Victor, it was amazing. We knew about the history of Hong Kong, walked in the most famous places “must see” in Hong Kong.I am glad that we booked this tour. Victor was very helpful and he answered all of our questions, very knowledgable. Overall I recommend taking this tour on the first days, as you need to know the most important to do’s in Hong Kong with tour guide.

Great city tour!!

We are a family of 5, with two teenage daughters and a 9 year old girl, we had a very short time to make a visit in Hong Kong and thanks to our guide Víctor, we could make the most out of it. He showed us not only the tourist sites but also part of the everyday life in Hong Kong. We highly recommend Victor as a guide, always friendly, patient and open to answer our questions. We also loved the experience of having lunch in a local restaurant where we were the only tourists and the food was really delicious. We highly recommend this tour!
