4 Hour Private Walking Tour of Hong Kong

If you are looking for a 4 hour cultural and historic walking tour of Hong Kong specifically tailored to meet the interests of an inquisitive and discerning cultural traveler, this is the tour for you.

I will make sure you will see and experience a truly memorable mix of iconic Hong Kong points of interest as well as plenty of localities far off the mainstream touristic path in a shortened half day time frame.

You can still count on plenty of vibrant local street culture. You can also expect a smattering of yummy local street snacking coupled with my sophisticated NYC cab driver style of commentary along the way.

As my Dad used to say, if you truly want to understand a culture you have to look at how the people eat, pray and trade. That means neighbourhood street life, local street markets, yummy street food, local eateries and all manner of taoist, buddhist and local folk temples and shrines.

My bespoke Hong Kong cultural tours are strictly private and tailored to match your expectations.


This is a private walking tour which means the itinerary will be personalised to meet your unique preferences.

As a general matter you can expect that we will cover all of the important points of interest in central Hong Kong, including the best vista from Victoria Peak, the historic Central District, the Star Ferry, the magnificent temples of Kowloon and the colourful mass of local urbanity known as Mongkok.

However, I will take you one step further by interconnecting and weaving between these basic waypoints with my own repertoire of local neighbourhoods, markets and lesser known but equally significant points of interest that I consider essential in order to complete the cultural and historic "big picture" of Hong Kong and its people.

This is the reaction I target: Wow I never imagined I would experience and learn so much.

And if you are an avid amateur photographer, phone camera user or simply want to have your visit well documented with cherished photographic memories, I'm your guide. . .

It's easy to spot me. I am always wearing a wide brim hat and a guide lanyard.

A Recent Review of this tour

Bill did a fantastic job of introducing us to Kowloon. His knowledge of the area was amazing. We enjoyed our time with him and recommend him wholeheartedly. His recommendations were great.
