6 hours | private walking + public transport tour of Hong Kong I accept last minute bookings


Book Jamie today for an intense premium, private tour, a real local experience, it really is the very best of Hong Kong in a day and I am always delighted to do multi day tours | Cultural Tourism at it's very best.

I have lived in Hong Kong for 46 years and I am the most experienced and most highly rated Private Tour Guide in Hong Kong having completed well over 2, 000 Private Tours since 2011 and as such I do NOT have set itineraries and no two days are ever the same.

I am more than happy to do special requests, you can let me know in advance or simply let me know when we meet and will let you know if it is feasible within the time frame of the tour

Please refer to the itinerary section for a more detailed explanation.

Please note that I do NOT do car tours or food tours. Hong Kong simply has the best public transport in the world and it is far quicker to walk and to use public transport than to use a private car, you will experience what I experience on a daily basis.

Itinerary

The real Hong Kong experience - the itinerary is in my hands and you will receive an intensive, in-depth tour of Hong Kong seeing the best that Hong Kong has to offer including the greatest city view in the World, the view at my spot at the Peak is simply stunning.

I do NOT have set itineraries and please note that I am more than happy to do special requests, you can let me know in advance or simply let me know when we meet at the start of the tour and will let you know if it is feasible within the time frame of the tour. I am the most experienced private tour guide in Hong Kong having done well over 2, 000 + tours since 2011.

All of my private tours can be customised in terms of tour length, I do tours of 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 hours generally speaking, most of my clients leave the tour itinerary to me due to my vast experience and the fact I have lived in Hong Kong for 46 years.

I am happy to stop for snacks or a meal, we can discuss this when we meet.

Transportation

This is a walking tour but we also use public transport to get from place to place if and when required, Hong Kong probably has the best public transport system of any city worldwide, it really adds to the tour experience!

We do walk at your pace with plenty of rest stops and if walking gets too much then we use public transport.

What’s Included

Other: Me, Jamie the most experienced and highly rated private tour guide in Hong Kong, having lived in Hong Kong since I was 11 years I know the place.

I pay for my share of food and transportation, however you need to read my what's extra section for a detailed description.

After the tour and if you are in Hong Kong for more than one day I can send to you my very highly rated Self Guided Tours, they cover all the great things to do and see in Hong Kong and come with very detailed instructions on how to get there using pubic transport and little image attachments to ensure you do not get lost!

I am the pioneer of self guided tours in Hong Kong, introducing them in 2011 | all part of my 5 star service..

Estimated Local Cash Needed

500 HK$ - This is a per person amount - It is always a good idea to carry a decent amount of local cash ie HK$ with you, a good supply of HK$10 and HK$20 notes + if you can get them HK$1, HK$2 and HK$5 coins. You can use this for transport, snacks, souvenirs etc. Most markets in Hong Kong accept cash only.

Most shops and restaurants accept credit cards but many older smaller restaurants take cash only.

What’s Extra

Other: The cost of any public transport such as taxi, buses, minibuses, ferries, trams, The Peak Tram, The MTR, Airport Express etc.

Drinks / Snacks / Meals / Souvenirs, etc.

Entrance fees (where applicable) into museums, parks etc. the cost of these is usually minimal and in many cases free (with the exception of Ocean Park and Disneyland!)

For convenience I absolutely recommend purchasing an OCTOPUS CARD available from any MTR Station, it will cost you HK$150 including a refundable deposit and you can top it up at any convenience store, this card can be used on all public transport options (except Taxies and Yellow minibuses) and you can use them at 7 - 11 and Circle K Convenience Stores, Supermarkets, Starbucks, McDonald's etc. It can save you a lot of time and hassle even if you are here for just a couple of days.

*It is hot and humid for 5 months of the year so remember to wear appropriate footwear/clothing.

A Recent Review of this tour

We have been to HKG 5 times. We had a 24-hour layover in HKG on this trip to mainland China and challenged Jaime to come up with a unique 6-hour itinerary to places/attractions we had not seen previously. He did an outstanding job coming up with a creative itinerary using various methods of transportation as requested & is a very personable and knowledgeable guide -- right down to the minutiae of how many McDonald's are in HKG! We especially enjoyed visiting "A Sky Full of Gods & Buddhas". Thank you!
