Wiggle through Hong Kong with a local private guide

Let me show you around Hong Kong! Asia's world city!
Would you like to hop around town like a local?
Get a taste of different cuisines, dine at places where tourists don't know how to get to?
Come join me and I will show you this exciting city.

P. S. Tours I give out will be my recommendations, however, the actual tour will be custom designed to your preference.


Sightseeings and food.
First from your hotel, will first head up to the Victoria Peak where I usually start my tours. Along the way will explain the local histories of the city of how this city began as a fishing village, its developments since 1842 to form into this mega city in Asia, one of the most important hubs in the world. The history continues by walking you through the colonial historic centre in displaying how the British had built this city in the very beginning eras. Will also show you a local suburb of Wan Chai in showcasing how locals live in this city, lifestyles, food including some food tastings of popular must haves, cultures, temples and religions. Not to miss out is to show you the Aberdeen fishing village and definitely not missing out on a ride on the iconic Star Ferry and a glimpse of the Kowloon area. A very comprehensive introduction of the city within half a day. Time slots of 8am and 2pm. See you in Hong Kong

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: We can meet up at your Hotel.
If you haven't booked your hotel yet or not sure where the location is, please send me a message so we can communicate.

End location: I will bring you all the way back to your hotel.

Duration: 4 hours

Approximately 4 to 5 hours
With 4 hours as minimum


Taxi, Subway, Walking, Bus and Tram

Transportation Method: Just a note that my tours are walking tours, however we do travel on public transport between some locations which will for sure be more fun than sitting in a standard coach tour and is all part of the authentic Hong Kong experience.

If vehicles are required, I can drive for extra USD$100

Note: if you are planning to come over between May and October, I would recommend you to wear something breezy and confortable as it will be hot and humid.

What’s Included

Service of course!
I offer tailored local tours for groups of up to 8 people.
Depending on your requests I can customize your itinerary to a tour that suits you, to your best interests, no matter if you have difficulties on some activities, need to make special arrangements for your kids, you name it… yet the best thing is that we can alter on any minute to make you feel enjoyable and comfortable during the whole course.

The concept of my tour is to show how us locals live and commute here, what our everyday lives are like to experience the location. We will be commuting by foot, public transport (subways and bus) and taxis, rest assured, our world renowned public transport system by cleanliness and efficiency will surely take you by surprise. As by "toursbylocals" culture, everyone has a story to tell and you will never go wrong hanging out with a local.
I look forward to take you out to see Hong Kong!

Estimated Local Cash Needed

500 Hong Kong Dollar - 500 Hong Kong Dollar - $500 HKD per person.
Cash expenses will be for the basics of food, shopping and transport.
Shops and restaurants accept credit cards (yes, it is safe using your credit card here)

What’s Extra


Depending on your preferences, your personal expense of $500 Hong Kong dollars per day may vary.

However, tour fee does not cover:

Cost of any transportation, meals, drinks, snacks, entrance fees, rides.

If you are in Hong Kong for 3 days or more, I would recommend you to get a local "Octopus" card which is a top up card with credit inside to pay for most transports, vending machines, convenient stores, Starbucks, and many more chain stores. It cost HK$150 and it has got HK$100 credit and $50 as deposit which you can get back once you return the card. This card will save you a lot of time and hassle with carrying a lot of coins. We can got get one together if you are not sure.

A Recent Review of this tour

With limited time in Hong Kong, we were desperate to see as much of this fascinating place as we could. We were not disappointed with our choice of Jacky to introduce us to as much as we humanly possible in the time we had. We have now taken numerous ToursByLocals tours in various countries and we continue to be impressed and happy with our choices. Jacky was no exception.
