Jamie provided an amazing tour for us. Five stars are not high enough to reflect the experience he provided. he provided a great depth of knowledge on the people, government, customs, quirks, and highlights of this amazing city. He also added a few surprises along the way, and was able to accommodate our special shopping request with ease. We can’t wait to visit again, and would use no other guide for our return.

Jamie did a fantastic job tailoring the tour to what we wanted to see and do. Further he went above and beyond by helping us identify and give us specifics on other things to do in Hong Kong the next day. Great job all around.

Jamie is a great guide (and guy!). He's an expat Brit and has an interesting view on the Hong Kong culture from his many years living there. Absolutely no problems figuring out what I wanted to see (I didn't even really know being my first time here) and then tailoring the 2 days to this. Really a fantastic tour and a great guy to spend two days with. Thanks, Jamie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dominic!

Jamie was perfect for us! My son and I are on a photography tour and Jamie turns out to be photographer also. He helped us find many great shots we would have missed. Jamie was also just right for me personally. I was in Hong Kong forty plus years ago as a teenager. Jamie came here to live just about the same time I was leaving. Jamie's extremely well-informed knowledge of Hong Kong allowed him to answer every single question I threw at him about change, filling in four decades for me of what I had missed
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Roger, James - it was a pleasure - thank you

We thoroughly enjoyed our all day tour of Hong Kong with Jamie. We liked that he tailored our tour to include places we wanted to visit, in addition to the excellent itinerary he had prepared. The day went seamlessly from the moment he met us at our hotel, until our train ride back at the end of the day. We learned so much from Jamie about the culture, economy and history of Hong Kong.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Taci and Rol, we had a great didnt we J

We had a great tour with Jamie. He was knowledgeable and entertaining, giving us an excellent overview of the city's history, government, and political status. He showed us some of the major sights, but also some areas that were more "off the beaten track." His comments through the tour were informative and we enjoyed hearing about his personal experiences he had gained as a long-time resident. He left us with a deeper understanding of Hong Kong, as well as nice memories. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Pat!
Karen S.United States
We spent the day with Jamie and thoroughly enjoyed our 8 hours. He showed us unusual sights that we would not have found on our own. We requested we use mass transit and we rode the the metro, buses and the Star Ferry to Hong Kong Island. Our lunch at a local Shanghai style Chinese restaurant had the best food we had in our two weeks in China. We learned much about what it is like to live in Hong Kong. We highly recommend Jamie if you are looking for an authentic experience in Hong Kong.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Karen, thanks John

Jamie was an excellent tour guide, most personable with a great sense of humour. This, along with his knowledge of Hong Kong, made for a very interesting, informative, exciting and pleasurable day touring this amazing city, not to mention his choice of restaurant for lunch was outstanding. Our day was relaxing, yet filled with many interesting points of interest, which included the Peak, and numerous other famous landmarks. (lots of walking, but a good pace)
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Lyon,

Jamie was a delightful guide. Unfortunately we had bad weather at the Peak but he made up for it with his conversation and everything else he had planned. We certainly got to experience all the available ways to travel around Hong Kong!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Donna & Ranny

Shame on me! It's been four months and I'm finally getting around to writing a review of our tour of Hong Kong conducted by Jamie. Actually I'm glad I waited this long. It's given me more time to think about the tour. What a wonderful memory. Jamie was a wealth of information. Even though the weather wasn't great he showed us trip we will never forget. We traveled all over and covered everything in just eight hours. So many escalators! If you want a memorable time in Hong Kong, Jamie's your man!
On our first visit to HK and with only one day stopover I decided to book Jamie's intense experience. He collected us promptly and we had a great whirl of a day. Using public transport we had a fantastic overview of the city and were given a comprehensive history and rundown on all the facets of life and culture in HK. He included quirky sites and back stories that are not in the guide book. My husband really gave him a work out with the questions and he was up to the challenge. Happy to highly recommend!

Jaime was absolutely perfect for our trip to Hong Kong. We made several changes to the plans and he was very accomodating. We covered plenty of ground in the short period of time that we had while in HK. Jaime was extremely knowledgeable about the city and showed us all of the important places to see. We enjoyed our time with him and would reccommend him to anyone interested in seeing HK through a locals eyes.
Susie SnowdonUnited States
We asked to see the "real" Hong Kong and that is just what Jamie gave us. He showed us how to use the Octopus Card in order to ride the subways, buses and ferries like a local. We spent 3 full days with Jamie and covered a lot of territory on foot. We were introduced to local neighborhoods and customs as well as the "must do" sites like The Peak, Giant Buddha, Nunnery, Light Show, etc. We even got in some shopping! Only disappointments: not going to any of the museums or a fishing village.
Lindsey R.United States
Jamie is a great guide and it was fun spending time with him.We had 6 days there and wanted to be able to get from A to B as needed so an orientation was what we were seeking and Jamie delivered! He tailored a 2-Day tour for us and we felt very comfortable setting out the rest of the week on our own.As he advertised there were lots of surprises along the way while he also accommodated all of our requests.We were exhausted by the end of each day, but it was time and energy well spent! Thanks again Jamie!
