Jamie L

Hong Kong

46 years in Hong Kong - I am the most experienced and most highly rated Private Tour Guide in Hong Kong.

Book your unique, premium, TIME SAVING private tour today : my tours involve walking & using public transport.

I cover current affairs, the history of Hong Kong, the Opium Wars, WW2 & The Japanese Occupation, languages, lucky numbers, education, politics, religion, the current housing crisis, architecture, wealth & poverty and day to day life in one of the most vibrant, exciting cities in the world. . . . and I do not mince words, I tell you what it is really like in Hong Kong and why you should not believe everything you read in the press!

I naturally have some limitations and I like to be upfront about them. . . . I do not look like George Clooney but have been called "fat George Clooney" by the wife, I am terrible at Cantonese and no, I do not have a posh English accent, I amble rather than walking like a kitted out 25 year old trail runner in spandex, I am not a foodie in any shape or form but having eaten in well over a thousand Chinese restaurants means I have an opinion, I am not a tree and plant expert but I can recognise a car from it's profile half a mile away and no, I cannot get you into the China Club, primarily because I am not a member and I am absolutely not in any shape or form an old stuffed shirt.

On the other hand it you are looking for a premium quality private tour of Hong Kong with an easygoing English chap with a great sense of humour who has lived here for 46 years then contact me today.

Over the past 6 years I have completed over 2, 000 Private Tours in Hong Kong so I have a great deal of experience - a real trailblazer and one of the pioneers in the field of immersive, private, insider Hong Kong tours since 2011

I am a bit of a photographer and I have 97, 000+ images of Hong Kong on my FLICKR site, all taken by me!

I have lived in Hong Kong since January 11th 1972, I offer premium quality private tours of Hong Kong - the tour is part walking / part public transport, giving you a real insight into one of the most amazing cities in the world.

My Private Tours are a combination of walking / using public transport with emphasis on using the MTR (Subway System) which is NOT subject to road traffic conditions - this is by far the best way to see Hong Kong and the most optimal use of your time. I am very sensitive to peoples physical condition and naturally I adapt accordingly no matter what the season

I am available 7 days a week including holidays
