Amy O.

Shatin, New Territories, Hong Kong

Welcome to Hong Kong, and thank you for considering me as your private guide.

Hong Kong is a city still full of traditions, cutting edge structures, a density that will blow your mind and inhabited by steadfastly strong and enlightening people. As a huge bonus… it has some of the tastiest (and inexpensive) food in the world too.

I'm have had both my children in Hong Kong, emigrating from London, UK, and am now in my eighth year here. When I moved, my goal was never to be an outsider in this city, and so I spent the time (trying) to learn the language and all about its history and people. Sharing these insights with overseas guests and being your friend in Hong Kong is what I am most passionate about.

Why consider a private tour? Because Hong Kong is at its most magnificent up close and personal! Not only that, with me around, you can ask any question that springs to mind, eat items you may have been reluctant to try, learn how to use the public transport system, adapt the itinerary and to give you the in depth understanding and enjoyable day you're looking for.

I always want you to get the most from Hong Kong and so will adapt the tour to suit you. Whether you want to see the famous skyline, ride the tram or Star Ferry, keep the kids entertained, go to the historic neighbourhoods or visit a local Hong Konger in their home, I have the perfect itinerary for you.

My most popular tours are on foot and by taking the cheap and efficient public transport to get us around quickly. However, I can also offer tours on bicycles (in the rural areas like the New Territories), and in a private vehicle. Car tours are certainly good in the hot summer weather and / or if you have any accessibility needs.

My tours are tailor-made, so if you have any specific wishes, it can absolutely be sorted for you. Over my four years as a tour guide, I have been asked for many things… Organising a marriage proposal on Repulse Bay beach at the God of Marriages; hunting for a former RAF base in the New Territories; eating novelty dim sum which vomits(!); to holding snakes and visiting a local in their "average" sized apartment. You name it, we've done it! Have a look at my tours to give you some ideas as well, or direct message me.

I love guiding, it's such a lovely job and I am truly energised by the people I meet. Be it families, couples or small groups, I learn something from you every time and always feel like I have found new friends in the far corners of the world. I have been with ToursByLocals since 2013 and have achieved the top rating, I have also been awarded the Certificate of Excellence 4 years in a row. Hopefully you will see this reflected in my reviews as well.

Book a tour with me, I look forward to greeting you!

A Recent Review of this guide

Great day with a friend! Amy took us to Victoria Peak where we hiked to a great look out spot away from the tourists. We tried traditional dim sum and Chinese sweets. Visited a wet market. Went to a snake cafe to have snake wine and my daughter held a python. Went to a temple of zodiacs and made a wish. We learned about the British history of Hong Kong and what's in store for the future. She was open for doing anything we wanted. Easy to understand as she is a British expat. Best guide we had on trip!
