Is communication a problem for you when you tour in Asia?
Have always fascinated about the rich cultures of Hong Kong and Macau?
Want to swift around like a local?
I've been a tourist to other countries as well, so I understand the needs of being in another place unfamiliar to me. I want to be safe and I don't want to have to worry. Therefore, it's very important to me that my tour provides you with a no worries, safe and secure environment.
I have lived in both cities of Hong Kong and Macau. My friends call me a street sider as I always love to explore and the small details of inner city living. I think this has been a habit of mine and has had something to do with growing up in the city of Melbourne, where little lanes corners will find yourself in a different world.
I grew up in Australia through my teenage and early twenties life and now settles myself in here in Hong Kong. I have had 10 years of hospitality experience, where I learnt a lot about how tourists are and their needs. I am young, knowledgeable, local and most importantly I understand the differences between western and local cultures. As a guide, I advocate Reliability, Responsibility and Resourcefulness.
Yet, I'm also a believer in tailored service. I believe all tours shall be different as everybody's needs and wants are different. It will be fun showing you the excitements of Hong Kong and Macau at the same time learn a little about your country and its culture too. This life is a learning experience. It goes by the saying, learns a little, gives a little. So I'm learning each day to be a better guide so that I can give you a memorable experience being on tour with me. I'm very flexible so you can truly enjoy your visit/vacation/holiday/getaway or however you would want to name it. I'm easy to talk to and friendly too. With me, you can enjoy, relax and chit chat, because apart from being your tour guide, I'm also your friend!
I am a food enthusiast! If you are looking for a culinary experience, just count on me. Tell me what your likes and dislikes are of food, I'll bring you to the food that suits your needs. There's just too much good food to choose from that I myself can't get enough of! Hong Kong, Asia's world city has it all and I'll gladly show you.
I have had friend's visits from overseas and I had previously organized private, authentic and original tours to great places. My goal is to take you off the beaten track to locations where you would never come on your own. To show and practice the local traditions and explore the streets of Hong Kong. For city tours, I always recommend using public transport. This is a fun experience and gives the best feel and maneuverability of the city. For trips out of the city, I will arrange a VIP van, it comes with upgraded interior and comfortable leather seats.
If you have special wishes please let me know. Making tailor-made tours to match with your personal interests is what I do best.
I can also assist you in planning your trip, suggesting places of interests other than our usual tour path, help you orientate, directing you on how to go to places.
The best scenario is to take up one of my tours upon your arrival, get a feel of the local area and with our planning, you will have confidence going around on your own with a breeze seeing all that you want to see.
A Recent Review of this guide
Jacky packed in all the highlights of Hong Kong while giving us just the right amount of history. He seemed to know just what we wanted and paced our tour perfectly. He was upfront when we asked about shopping (no, don't buy that, don't go there, tomorrow go here, etc) In our time together we traveled by ferry, trolly, taxi, bus, train, and about 15,000 steps. His personality, knowledge, and energy made today absolutely fabulous. Tour by Locals was the best choice, second only to Jacky. Many thanks.
