Jamie was by far one of the best tour guides we've ever had. He was knowledgeable, responsive, reliable and an all around pleasure to spend the day with. He provided us with a real feel for the city. We travelled the city by public transportation which gave us a special non tourist feel. Book him early. He is well worth it!

We spent two fabulous days with Jamie. It was a crash course on Hong Kong. We took every mode of transportation imaginable and got to know Kong Kong in ways no other guide could deliver. He is an English man, who has lived in Hong Kong for years, and married a local. His readily shares his perspective as an insider and an outsider. One HUGE plus was an email after the tour of EVERYTHING we saw. Over 50 sights! The list not only helped up us title pictures, but triggered great memories.

We learned a lot about Hong Kong today. Jamie was very knowledgable and gave us insights into life in the city and outside. The tour was at an easy pace with plenty of current and historical facts along the way. We used a combination of public transport (including the ferry), taxis and walking which gave us a good feel for life in the city. We'd happily recommend Jamie.

Jamie was the best tour guide we have ever had. The tour transitioned seamlessly from destination to destination with excellent commentary about any detail of Hong Kong we asked about. His facts and anecdotes colored all the locations and no topic was off limits. Learned and saw so much in 4 hours, and hours after our tour he was kind enough to email dozens of more recommendations for the rest of our time here (very detailed itineraries with photos!).

He took me to some really interesting places, like his favorite hole in the wall dim sum restaurant as well as some things you will NOT see on the double decker tour bus. Additionally, I did an all day tour with Jamie just one on one, him and me. Never tired of his company, very pleasant man. Strongly recommend!

I was initially a little worried because Jamie doesn't like to share itineraries in advance but my concerns quickly abated when he showed up at my hotel early with a taxi running to whip us up to the Peak. Jamie kept the day moving, asking about my interests and making the plans as the day unfolded. He has an amazing amount of knowledge about Hong Kong's history, customs, culture, and peppers it all with dry British humor.I recommend him highly!

We have been to HKG 5 times.

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!

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.

His knowledge and professionalism made him a near perfect tour guide for our needs.

Jamie was punctual, entertaining, and knowledgeable. And he was able to quickly adapt to weather and some personal preferences on things to see. No better way to get a first day introduction to a city we've never visited.

Jamie was on time. We learned how to use the octopus card, metro, and bus system. Very helpful. Jamie provided us with a useful email for other things to do on our own the following day. We felt there was too much talking and not enough doing and seeing. Jamie's attitude toward ceremony and the main land tourism was negative.

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!

Our tour with Jamie was much as described. He kept us entertained even though bad weather limited our tour to some extent. He provided great commentary and answered all of our questions. He was flexible in planning and adjusted to our requests after he promptly met us at our hotel. He also sent us several emails the evening following our tour giving us step by step instructions on how to visit some sites we unable to see on our tour. We would highly recommend Jamie for your tour!

We have had many guides over the years and we have to say we rank Jamie as one of the best. He gave us a varied itinerary based on our interests and gave us a great overview of Hong Kong. We saw things we never expected and his expertise gave us some local flavor we would have missed otherwise. We feel very clever to have booked him for our day in Hong Kong.

Jaime did a great job. He knows and loves his city and took us places that only the locals know about. His "spot" for viewing Hong Kong from the Peak area was spectacular. His ability to give historic details along with the tour was extremely informative and made understanding the development of Hong Kong easier. I would recommend Jaime and his tours very highly. We have another night tour of Hong Kong scheduled for tomorrow and looking forward to it.

Shame on me! It's been four months and I'm finally getting around to writing a review of our tour of Hong Kong conducted by Jamie. Actually I'm glad I waited this long. It's given me more time to think about the tour. What a wonderful memory. Jamie was a wealth of information. Even though the weather wasn't great he showed us trip we will never forget. We traveled all over and covered everything in just eight hours. So many escalators! If you want a memorable time in Hong Kong, Jamie's your man!

On our first visit to HK and with only one day stopover I decided to book Jamie's intense experience. He collected us promptly and we had a great whirl of a day. Using public transport we had a fantastic overview of the city and were given a comprehensive history and rundown on all the facets of life and culture in HK. He included quirky sites and back stories that are not in the guide book. My husband really gave him a work out with the questions and he was up to the challenge. Happy to highly recommend!

Jamie was fabulous! He took us throughout the city by subway and showed us interesting parts of the city. He kept our teenage children in mind and they had a wonderful time. Being from Florida and Miami Heat NBA fans, he even allowed us to use his cellphone to keep an eye on the Championship game score (Miami won!). We went at our own pace and had a lovely day.

The tour with Jamie was great. He was knowledgeable, funny, and we saw a LOT. The best advice he gave me was to not wait in the multi-hour line for Victoria Peak but instead take a taxi up and then the tram down. I got the tram experience but saved myself a lot of time. I would highly recommend doing a tour with him.

Wow what an amazing day and time we had with Jamie. If you are looking for someone that can show you the real HK and assist you to understand getting around HK, look no further. I have been to HK before but he blew me away with his tour. Thank you Jamie for the most unreal day. I have already sent recommendations to friends who are coming to HK. Forget those commercial tours and live a little. It is worth every bit.

I enjoyed the tailoring of the tour and Jamie's relaxed and easy-to-talk-to manner. It hardly felt like a tour but just 2 blokes traveling around and talking about what they saw. Would recommend this to anyone. It certainly got my interest to go back the next day and see some things I would never have known about otherwise (and certainly not from the regular tours). I now have a better understanding of how to use the transport from trams, buses, MTR and ferries and feel confident jumping on and off.

I had a very enjoyable and interesting time with Jamie. I saw several fascinating places which I almost certainly wouldn't have found for myself. What was a real bonus was the very helpful advice for getting around Hong Kong and also the list of recommendations for places to visit later in my trip. Jamie's tour gave me a great platform on which to build the rest of my visit. Many thanks.

Jaime was absolutely perfect for our trip to Hong Kong. We made several changes to the plans and he was very accomodating. We covered plenty of ground in the short period of time that we had while in HK. Jaime was extremely knowledgeable about the city and showed us all of the important places to see. We enjoyed our time with him and would reccommend him to anyone interested in seeing HK through a locals eyes.

We arrived in Hong Kong on Jan 20, 2012. Jamie met us at our hotel that evening to introduce Hong Kong to us. Jamie took us around on a special tour itinerary that we set up with him before our arrival. Jamie explained to us how to use the local transit system and by the end of the evening we felt very comfortable using it. His tour was exactly what we asked for and we would highly recommend his services to anyone going to Hong Kong in the future.

He was considerate, amusing and enthusiastic, a very good guide.

Jamie lived up to his work on adding "the surprise tour and leave it up to him". He took me to see the real hart of Hong Kong, traveling with the locals on public transit and visiting local areas. Seeing the regular tourist areas as well as some hidden gems. Jamie is very friendly and easy to get along with. I am very glad I pick his tour and would recommend it to anyone who likes to see the inside of Hong Kong.

Jamie provided us with two wonderful days. We had already experienced the usual and customary HongKong tours and asked that he provide us with something other than the usual tourist attractions. We saw parts of the city that most people never get to experience unless they live here and are returning home with a completely different perspective on Hong Kong than we had prior to our two days with Jamie. The only thing that was lacking in any way was we felt there could have been a bit more history included

We asked to see the "real" Hong Kong and that is just what Jamie gave us. He showed us how to use the Octopus Card in order to ride the subways, buses and ferries like a local. We spent 3 full days with Jamie and covered a lot of territory on foot. We were introduced to local neighborhoods and customs as well as the "must do" sites like The Peak, Giant Buddha, Nunnery, Light Show, etc. We even got in some shopping! Only disappointments: not going to any of the museums or a fishing village.

From Jamie's (an Englishman) description, we expected someone who has been in Hong Kong for forty years to be more "Chinese" but were disappointed that he spoke no Chinese and did not eat a lot of Chinese food that most locals do. The tour had a lot of walking so unless you are fit, I would not recommend this tour. He did not offer a lot of comment during the tour is we had to ask questions to find out information. However, he is a pleasant and friendly person and knows his way around.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mr. Quan is entitled to his opinion, this was a lovely group of people, 6 in all, all with their own needs and requirements and I spent as much time with everyone as I could. As for not speaking Cantonese, simply put Cantonese is one of the hardest languages in the world to learn and I have no ability in this area!I have never had a problem in Hong Kong with my lack of Cantonese, we ate Chinese food at quite simply the best Chinese Restaurant in Hong Kong and the group were thrilled with the choice!

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We've reviewed Jamie's profile and note that he promotes himself as 'English, living in Hong Kong for 35 years and in love with the city'. Jamie's tours are all walking tours, but he does suggest using public transit if necessary.

After our day tour with Jamie we will never consider Hong Kong just to be a stop over destination. What Jamie doesn't know about this complex country is not worth knowing. He quickly summed us up and took us on a tour that completely entailed all we had requested. Like so many of the guides from Tours by locals we used in our travels he started as a stranger and ended as a trusted friend
