Welcome to Hong Kong! This is the 4 hour half-day crash course tour.


History. Culture. Chinese Proverbs. Traditions. Local Food.

A half day tour of our Signature Best of Hong Kong tour. This half day 4-hour tour is perfect for those who are tight on time.

Regardless of the tight timeframe, you are whisked away to get a multi-faceted intro to Hong Kong in this 4 hour tour to get a flavour of the fragrant harbour (Hong Kong). You are transported into the heart of Hong Kong to see how the locals live life and to experience the hustle and bustle of the real 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 and you think that our Signature Discover the Best of Hong Kong 8-hour tour may not be for you, then this is the perfect alternative! We see a little bit of everything so you get a true well rounded taste of Hong Kong.

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, a romp around the wet markets, the iconic Star Ferry, a stroll of the stinky tofu snack street, & a stroll through various markets with all those cool neon signs above.

A Recent Review of this tour

Virginia was a delight to spend time with seeing the sights and experiencing the culture that Hong Kong had on offer in such a short space of time that I had. In 4 hours we travelled to Victoria's Peak, Markets, Man Mo Temple, the lions of HSBC and the shoreline. We ate at a traditional tea house parlour. It was a wonderful introductory experience to Hong Kong. Virginia loves showing tourists her city, her enthusiasm and knowledge along with her friendly and professional character make her an ideal host.
