explanation

English (fluent)

8 hours | private walking + public transport tour of Hong Kong also for last minute bookings


If you really want to know Hong Kong and I mean really know Hong Kong then book a premium private tour with Jamie today | when it comes to Hong Kong, NO topic is off the table no matter how difficult or sensitive the subject matter. .

As my premium tours are fully customisable I 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. We have 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 and you will really get to know Hong Kong.

I give you the REAL Hong Kong with adult conversation and a genuine local perspective rather than telling you fluffy nonsense! remember we walk & use Public Transport | I can customise a tour for you, start time, no. of people, no. of hours, price etc for booking purposes.

Itinerary

For a full immersion into Hong Kong Culture we will generally visit Victoria Peak on Hong Kong Island for the greatest city view in the World, + the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple and take a ride on the iconic Star Ferry + the amazing view of Hong Kong Island from Kowloon.

I generally do NOT offer set itineraries as there are simply thousands of possible permutations, I am more than happy to do YOUR special requests, let me have the details and I will let you know if it is feasible within the time frame of the tour. I am simply 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 47 years, I know Hong Kong and the culture.

I am happy to stop for snacks or a meal.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

End Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 8 hours

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 old, 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 were a group of four with only one day to spend in Hong Kong. Jamie provided us with a fantastic introduction to the city in that short amount of time. In the course of eight hours we visited Chi Lin Buddhist nunnery, Wong Tai Sin temple, some of the city's most famous hotels, crossed the harbor, walked on the Peak, and strolled by some of the city's historic colonial buildings. What's more, we did all of that using public transportation! Overall it was an excellent and informative day out. Thank you!
