Tour Hong Kong with your new local friend
A introduction to the real Hong Kong for one person with one of ToursByLocals's top-rated and award winning private guides - I like to give you the perfect slice of Hong Kong and what it has to offer from a non-touristy perspective. If it's your first time in Hong Kong you'll soon be up to speed on the current political situation, the history of the island, how to get around using public transport, eat the like a local, and navigate through a city of 7. 24 million with zero personal space available. We'll visit the some of the major attraction sites and explore some of the most local neighborhoods, revealing their hidden gems and making sure you get the most out of this great city. If you want to explore the Peak on your own, we can delve into more of the side streets to uncover what makes this city tick instead. This is the 8 hour option, I also have 4 hour and 6 hour options available.
Sample Itinerary (we can manipulate the tour to suit your needs):
Meet at your hotel and head to Victoria Peak to get the best view of the skyscraper city and Victoria Harbour and return via the Peak Tram (optional).
Visit the open air meat and fish markets and take the opportunity to try the delicious local street snacks such as pineapple buns, milk tea and some unusual items (not gross I promise!)
Visit a temple of cultural significance and learn how to shape your own destiny.
View the famous buildings of the Hong Kong Skyline for an up close account of their history, Fung shui and local nicknames.
Local dim sum lunch, the Star Ferry and Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade.
Take in the tranquility at the Nan Lian Gardens and Chi Lin Nunnery.
However in 8 hours we can cover a great deal of Hong Kong so feel free to make suggestions for the itinerary, I am completely flexible with what we do and where we go.
Meeting Point + Tour Duration
Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building
Duration: 8 hours
We will be taking public transport (MTR, tram and Star Ferry) on the tour and I would therefore suggest that you purchase Octopus cards for your stay in Hong Kong.
$150 HKD per adult ($50 deposit, $100 credit)
$70 HKD per child or senior ($50 deposit, $20 credit, an additional $30 is recommended)
They are available from any MTR station and are by far the easiest way to get around. I can help you with this should you need.
Estimated Local Cash Needed
600 HKD - Food, drink and any shopping
