A 4 Hour Private Walking Tour of Hong Kong Island and Old British Kowloon


If you are looking for a 4 hour cultural and historic walking tour of Hong Kong specifically tailored to meet the interests of an inquisitive and discerning cultural traveler, this is the tour for you.

I will make sure you will see and experience a truly memorable mix of iconic Hong Kong points of interest as well as plenty of localities far off the mainstream touristic path in a slightly shortened half day time frame.

You can still count on plenty of vibrant local street culture. You can also expect a smattering of yummy local street snacking coupled with my sophisticated NYC cab driver style of commentary along the way.

As my parents used to say if you truly want to understand a culture you have to look at how the people eat, pray and trade. That means neighborhood street life, local street markets, yummy street food, local eateries and all manner of Taoist, Buddhist and local folk temples and shrines.

My bespoke Hong Kong cultural tours are strictly private and tailored to meet your expectations.

Itinerary

This is a private walking tour which means the itinerary will be personalized to meet your preferences.

As a general matter, you can expect that we will cover all of the important points of interest in central Hong Kong, including the best vista from Victoria Peak, the historic Central District, the Star Ferry, the magnificent temples of Kowloon and the colorful mass of local urbanity known as Mongkok.

However, I will take you one step further by interconnecting and weaving between these basic waypoints with my own repertoire of local neighborhoods, markets and lesser-known but equally significant points of interest that I consider essential in order to complete the cultural and historic "big picture" of Hong Kong and its people.

This is the reaction I target: Wow I never imagined I would experience and learn so much.

And if you are an avid amateur photographer, phone camera user or simply want to have your visit well documented with cherished photographic memories, I'm your guide. . .

A Recent Review of this tour

This was a fantastic tour and Bill was a great guide who taught us so much. We loved his discussions about the history of Hong Kong and the trip on the ferries and buses of the city was awesome. He gave us great advice about what to do for the rest of our holiday - superb trip to Lantau exactly as he advised. Can not recommend Bill highly enough
