Didn't know anything interesting about Hong Kong, mostly works with Spanish speaking tourists who may not have any background knowledge about Hong Kong as I did. The lows were a lot of negative statements about every thing that ruined my tour. The highlight was a vegetarian Tea house that should not be missed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for your comments, I am actually surprised considering we extended the tour for 3 hours! I am sorry you felt there were lot of negative statements, on the contrary, I always highlight buddhism teachings about being compassionate and adopting the middle way, which we discussed when talking about religions in HK. I respect your opinion and understand not everyone is interested in the same facts, but I do spend lot of time on research daily. I wish you the best and hope the astrologer was accurate!

Lorena is an exceptional tour guide. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable, she is insightful, caring and wants to make sure that you see everything at your own pace. Lorena goes beyond being a tour guide and by the end of our two days of touring with Lorena we felt that we not only gained the 'inside' knowledge of Hong Kong through the beautifully organized tour, but that we also made a new friend! If coming to HK you would be remiss not to engage Lorena as your tour guide! Thank you Lorena!

Great insight to the real Hong Kong, from tourist interests to how the locals enjoy the city. A full day, personalized tour from Hong Kong to Kowloon using all types of local transportation and included how to dine local. Showed us how to enjoy the city for low cost covering a lot of territory. Lorena has very good knowledge of the culture and practical matters of the populace. As an ex-pat in HK, she has observed with great insight and relates that experience.

Fantastic personality, great tour! Lorena effortlessly adjusted the agenda to accommodate our special wishes and provided a wonderful introduction to HKG, including its excellent public-transportation system. Her sightseeing choices as well as her restaurant pick were outstanding, and her humor and upbeat disposition made this a very enjoyable tour. Muchas gracias, Lorena!

A lovely day with a very pleasant lady who gave us a day of contrasts from the very busy to the very tranquil all in the same city. She adapted the tour to cater for my wife's interests in plants. Lunch was good and although a long day it flew by

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Roy! The day that we spent together was really amazing, we discovered so many places in only one day! Thank you for giving me this lovely chance to host you in Hong Kong. Lorena

We just finished a tour in Hong Kong and definitely Lorena our tour guide made the difference. It was all about getting to know Hong Kong as a local. We walked, took the bus, the Tram and a taxi. We had the best experience. She did a wonderful job. I truly recommended her.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lorena, Thank you for your comments! You were right that it was a sign of good luck to share the same name! Hong Kong's public transportation is definitely one of the best systems in the world and the most authentic way to know the real Hong Kong, I'm glad you enjoyed it! I had a great time exploring Hong Kong with your family and I hope we see each other in the future! All my best, Lorena

On our second tour with Lorena, she took us to two different temples in Hong Kong, telling a lot about their histories. It was a lovely and quiet time spent in the middle of a noisy and busy city. We liked that contrast. And Lorena was always a great guide, very patient with our group.

Lorena was a great and lovely guide for our family of 7 adults of different ages. We had just a few time in Hong Kong, and she showed us the main sites, like The Peak and Victoria Harbour, and also told us a lot about the local life. We loved to use the great public transportation system in Hong Kong. Definitely, a great experience with Lorena! And the fact that she speaks fluent spanish and portuguese helped us a lot.

Excellent guide. We had a layover in Hong Kong so had only 6 hours to get the flavor of HK. She listened to what we wanted and made our tour smooth, efficient, pleasant and interesting. A very nice person to be with. We recommend her very highly

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Eva, Thank you very much for your kind words! I am really grateful that you enjoyed the tour and I certainly had a great time with the 3 of you as well! Hope to see you again in your next visit to Hong Kong! Thanks! Lorena

While on a business trip I decided to take the opportunity to see HKG. The day tour was absolutely what I was looking for. I experienced HKG as a local, traveling by train, bus, boat and a lot of walking. My stay was short but I can say that Lorena filled each moment with interesting facts during our time together (temples, shops, bird and flower district, restaurants and best of all TOP OF THE PEAK). Lorena's enthusiasm in her work is very apparent which made my experience even better.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ann, Thank you so much for your review and your kind comments! I was very happy to be part of your day off during your business trip. It was a lovely day chatting about Hong Kong's unique culture and exploring its streets and most popular places. Thanks again! Lorena
