I had a great time with my local tour guide. I sent some sights that I wanted to see to the guide in advance, and he mapped out our time together. He told my the ins and outs of the area, and it really felt like an immersive experience. I would recommend this tour highly!

Evangeline was the perfect host. We walked in the town a lot, took the metro to Kowloon and visited the Peak. Definitely worth having a guide for us as we were only in HK for a day and a half and we used the time well.

Very useful to see and to learn about the city of Hong Kong but unfortunately it was very fogy we couldn’t see anything with the train on top

Ben was great, very helpful and really tried hard to make sure we hadvthe best experience according to our individual needs.

What a wonderful day. More than we expected. Lovely guide. Very knowledgeable. We would highly recommend this tour/guide.
