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 and not forgetting I have a habit of making interesting sightseeing detours!

If you have specific interests then let me know and I can work these into the tour, I can customise the tour based on number of people / number of hours, just let me know and I will create a custom tour link for booking

I need to stress that I am NOT a foodie nor do I do food based tours, I am happy to stop for snacks or at a restaurant if this is what you want to do, I have eaten at over 1, 250 Chinese Restaurants since I arrived in 1972 and yes, I have some favourite restaurants and I am happy to take you there as long as you understand that food is subjective and what I like may not be what you like!

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!

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

My undivided attention, I provide a quality tour. I can also customise the tours in advance based on what you want to do in the time you have available or you can just give me suggestions when we meet and did I mention I love tours with families, kids are always welcome on my tours.

There is always an element of mystery to my tours and I am absolutely passionate about Hong Kong.

So here is what you get.

A flexible, personal, bespoke sightseeing tour of Hong Kong, this is not like a typical touristy coach tour, we walk, we use public transport (including taxi's if needed) and you can explore to your hearts desire and best of all, it is just you and me.

An in depth, personal and fun experience for you and your family / friends or colleagues.

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 are cash only.

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

What’s Extra

Not covered in my fee schedule are:

The cost of any public transport such as taxi's, buses, mini buses, 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 Taxi's and Yellow minibuses) and you can use them at 7 - 11 and Circle K Convenience Stores, Supermarkets, Starbucks, McDonalds etc they can save you a lot of time and hassle even if you are here for just a couple of days.

A Recent Review of this tour

Jamie was the Perfect Guide for Hong Kong! I have been to Hong Kong before, but was bringing my kids along this time, and looking for a guide to give them some history of the city. He was able to keep their attention, and they are still talking about the things he taught them. He took us to the best view in Hong Kong, and gave me an insight into the city that I did not know. I thank him for a great day and highly recommend him to adult travelers as well as families with little ones.
