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!

Angel was a fantastic guide! A HK local and it showed, she knew all the best places to go and things to do. I did a full day with her on my first day in town and the rest of my trip wouldn't have been nearly as good without her knowledge. Highly recommended!

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.
