Visit main sites in Hong Kong Island and Kowloon through the eyes of a real local private guide

Would you like to see the full picture of Hong Kong?
The variety of neighborhoods, atmosphere, architecture and its history is stunning!

Discover the local culture and lifestyle as we stroll and taste our way through the city, and follow me to the best secret spot to enjoy the breathtaking view of the world-famous Victoria Harbour. In my tour, you will get to see the major sights and flavors of Hong Kong with a local girl who knows it inside and out.

We'll visit a local wet market to see how locals shop for their groceries everyday, ride the famous Star Ferry and/or the Ding Ding Tram, visit the popular Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple to claim some good luck or enjoy the serenity of Nan Lian Garden and Chi Lin Nunnery. Of course we can't miss out a delicious dimsum lunch and exciting street food!

Yes, the city can be hectic, but the way we move is relaxing and fun. The content is always customized just for you. No matter what, I will do my best to ensure you have a great adventure with your local buddy!


Every tour is uniquely designed just for you!

The full-day will always cover the major attractions such as the Peak, Stanley and/or Star Ferry, the local food and culture and some natural scenery off the beaten track. I usually recommend guests to take the tour at the beginning of their stay in Hong Kong. It can be a great introduction to Hong Kong and give you insight what to see on your own during your stay here.

No matter you have been to Hong Kong or not, my tour is always able to bring you surprises and show you the real Hong Kong and all the awe-inspiring places that even locals don't know about.

Book a tour, tell me what you like or not like, and I will sort out the rest for you!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

500 HKD - You may prepare about 200-500HKD each for souvenirs, food and drink, taxi etc. You may also bring your credit card with you. In Hong Kong, most outlets and big restaurants accept Visa and Mastercard.

What’s Extra

Food and Beverage

All the food and beverage consumed during the tours are at the visitors' own costs. But don't worry! According to my past experience, the charge is usually minimal. I know best where to find good eats with friendly prices, so get ready to start a culinary adventure with me! Other expenditures such as souvenirs, entrance fees (where applicable) into parks and museums are also not included.


Hong Kong has the best public transportation in the world and therefore we will be traveling like how most locals do. I highly recommend you to get an Octopus Card in any MTR Station. Costing you HKD150 which includes a HKD50 refundable deposit and HK100 value, the Octopus Card can be used for paying in all public transport and so much more. I can assist in getting one for you.

A Recent Review of this tour

This was our first of two days with Mandy and she was great. She showed up at the appointed time. Her English was very good and she is very personable, we clicked with her right away. She showed us how to use the subway. Over the two full days we saw a lot of Hong Kong, even places tourists probably wouldn't venture like how the locals live. I highly recommend Mandy.
