Welcome to Hong Kong! This is the 8-hour crash course tour.


History. Culture. Chinese Proverbs. Traditions. Local Food. A whirlwind of a day to give you an all encompassing intro to Hong Kong in this 8 hour tour to get a flavour of the fragrant harbour (Hong Kong). Come see how there is so much OLD with the NEW & EAST with the WEST coexisting in perfect harmony.

Please note: the consumption of fishballs are optional. But do ask me to tell you the funny story of the tour title ;)

Itinerary

If this is your first time in Hong Kong, then this is the perfect tour for you. We see a little bit of everything so you get a true well rounded taste of Hong Kong. This tour is recommended to be done on your first day in Hong Kong to help you get oriented with the city.

We will hit up some tourist bucket list attractions, hidden back streets to see the true local hustle and bustle, learn about the historical events & see historical landmarks, and try some mouth watering local snacks.

The tour will include a moderate (& a bit more) degree of culture shock - the best way to explore any city is through the eyes and lives of locals and we will do just that.

There is flexibility in the itinerary but a typical tour would include: Victoria Peak, an heritage temple, traditional dim sum lunch, romp around the wet markets, the iconic Star Ferry, a whip of the stinky tofu, & a meander through various markets with all those cool neon signs above!

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: Hotel pick-up or a mutually agreed upon location.

I am able to provide a hotel pick-up and drop-off if your hotel is within the metropolitan parts of Hong Kong. Please enquire with me to see if your hotel is within that zone.

End location: Hotel drop-off or a mutually agreed upon location.

I am able to provide a hotel pick-up and drop-off if your hotel is within the metropolitan parts of Hong Kong. Please enquire with me to see if your hotel is within that zone.

What’s Included

My services as your private tour guide for an 8 hour tour of Hong Kong.

Estimated Local Cash Needed

1000 HKD - $1000 HKD per person will be more than enough to cover for transportation, entrance fees, and any snack, food and beverage needs.

What’s Extra

Cost of transportation, food, snacks, beverages and any entrance fees (if necessary). Taxis in Hong Kong are cash only and so are a lot of the small shops.
