This was an extremely interesting insight into the side not normally seen by tourists, particularly looking at the housing situation in a very crowded Hong Kong. S.P. was a great guide showing us the area with a lot of local knowledge and willing to answer all questions. There was a walk through the animal market, flower market and the bird market as well which started the tour off. There is a little walking but not onerous but wear comfortable shoes. Do not go if you are easily upset by seeing homeless people on the streets or if you may get upset by the living conditions seen.
Our guide was brilliant, he was funny and interactive (Ami i think his name was). We saw parts of Hong Kong that we may not have as this tour is not something that Google suggests as one of the top things to do. Visiting the slum areas was the heartbreaking part, if you ever feel as though life is not good for you, this visit most certainly puts life into perspective. I wish I could do more to help the people of Hong Kong.
I was here during the riots in November and big bus tours attempted to do everything they could to continue service even though many of the roads are affected . the only thing they could have done a little bit better would be to communicate when an entire route is cancelled, they canceled the blue line the entire time I was here and did not have a representative at the main stop to give guidance.
The Green tour was good. Stops were great would do the tour again just for the green line. To much traffic on the red tour and found stops were not great. Once off bus have to wait long time for next one. Better to not get off the bus
Terry was awesome! The tour was so informative - I personally cannot recommend it enough! Would love to say more, but I'd be giving too much away and would spoil it for anyone truly interested in going.
