I am currently working on a new guidebook, 'Hong Kong for Kids', which should be published shortly.
I have been living in Hong Kong for a number of years, and have been lucky to explore this terrific place from every corner and from every angle!
I am passionate about other cultures, languages, food and nature - and undertake a wide range of outdoor pursuits as a way of seeing a place from a different perspective: hiking, cycling, kayaking and snorkling.
It was my desire to share knowledge about Hong Kong with kindred spirits that inspired me to follow the official course for becomng an official tour guide.
A Recent Review of this guide
Violetta is a great guide, easy going, easy to understand and communicate with, willing to add/subtract from the the itinerary if feasible. It is obvious she loves Hong Kong and enjoys seeing that travelers get the most out of the tours. The day of our tour the protests escalated …. this made transportation difficult, and also meant we did not get to see everything that Violetta planned for us, but she persevered with re-routing and re-scheduling our day. Would love to engage her as a guide again.

I am not a driver. Hong Kong has a very good public transport system so we can use public transport or taxis. On request, I can arrange for a separate car and driver.
