Tour Hong Kong with your new local friend


A introduction to the real Hong Kong for one person with one of ToursByLocals's top-rated and award winning private guides - I like to give you the perfect slice of Hong Kong and what it has to offer from a non-touristy perspective. If it's your first time in Hong Kong you'll soon be up to speed on the current political situation, the history of the island, how to get around using public transport, eat the like a local, and navigate through a city of 7. 24 million with zero personal space available. We'll visit the some of the major attraction sites and explore some of the most local neighborhoods, revealing their hidden gems and making sure you get the most out of this great city. If you want to explore the Peak on your own, we can delve into more of the side streets to uncover what makes this city tick instead. This is the 6 hour option, I also have 4 hour and 8 hour options available.

Itinerary

Meet at your hotel and head to Victoria Peak to get the best view of the skyscraper city and Victoria Harbour and return via the Peak Tram (ticket included with skip-the-line access). 



Visit the open air meat and fish markets and take the opportunity to try the delicious local street snacks such as pineapple buns, milk tea and some other interesting items (not gross I promise!)



Visit a temple of cultural significance and learn how to shape your own destiny. 



View the famous buildings of the Hong Kong Skyline for an up close account of their history, Fung shui and local nicknames. 



Eat a local dim sum lunch, and take the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour to Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel

End Point Options: Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel

Duration: 5 hours

Transportation

We will be taking public transport (MTR, tram and Star Ferry) on the tour and I would therefore suggest that you purchase Octopus cards for your stay in Hong Kong. They cost $150 HKD each ($50 deposit, $100 credit) but as they are the easiest way to get around, I think they are invaluable. They are available from any MTR station and I can help you with this should you need. You can also use them in most shops and outlets as a form of payment as well.

What’s Included

Other: A native-English speaking tour guide with knowledge of the local language
Peak tram ticket with skip the line access

Estimated Local Cash Needed

500 HKD - For shopping if needed

What’s Extra

Other: Food and drink
Public transport - an Octopus travel card is recommended (see below). I can help you with this when we meet.
