Virginia gave us an AMAZING time in Hong Kong! She is super friendly and very well informed. It is rare to find someone so well versed in both western and Chinese cultures. She tuned into exactly the kind of experience we were looking for and delivered more than we expected. By the end we considered her a friend. I highly recommend her if you are considering a guide!

Virginia is awesome!! If you are coming to HK definitely grab her for a tour! She was able to customize the tour around my preferences and while we were able to see some main landmarks we also got into the local neighborhoods and markets. I enjoyed my tour and highly recommend Virginia!

LOVED this guide and assistant guide! They were highly professional, knew special insights about the "basic history" of Hong Kong because Virginia had grandparents in Hong Kong and lives there herself. She catered my tour to the fact that I was vegetarian and found delicious food for me along side telling me fascinating history and giving me a highly entertaining tour. Thank you so much Virginia. If I am ever in Hong Kong again I will call you. Laurie

Virginia was a delight to spend time with seeing the sights and experiencing the culture that Hong Kong had on offer in such a short space of time that I had. In 4 hours we travelled to Victoria's Peak, Markets, Man Mo Temple, the lions of HSBC and the shoreline. We ate at a traditional tea house parlour. It was a wonderful introductory experience to Hong Kong. Virginia loves showing tourists her city, her enthusiasm and knowledge along with her friendly and professional character make her an ideal host.

Virginia was a great guide, and the perfect companion to see the city with, especially as a lone traveler. I felt I was being shown around by a friend who knew all the right places to take me. She shared a lot of information about the city, past and present, and had a good grasp of the history of the things we were looking at. And if you like good food, you will be in the right hands; I had a couple of authentic food experiences that I loved. All in all a very enjoyable time that I would highly recommend.

Virginia is a excellent tour guide! Very knowledgeable and easy going. I had a specific agenda of certain places I wanted to visit that were out of the normal. She tailored the tour to my specifications and made sure I saw everything I wanted to see. I would highly recommend Virginia to anyone wanting to visit Hong Kong!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Eric! What a fab day and thank you for such a fun tour - taking you to all the famous public housing estates and trying cart noodles at the Michelin recommended place in Sham Shui Po. Take next time! The girl with the moose antlers, Virginia

Fantastic experience of Hong Kong food. Love the quirky dim sum place/restaurant/tea house. Vying for table. Grabbing food from trolley and ritual of washing cups bowls and chopsticks. Loved the north Kowloon area with the pineapple buns and of course the local rice rolls. Food good local knowledge good, English excellent, can really recommend Virginia as a guide

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your brilliant review! It was pretty amazing to see you get interviewed by South China Morning Post as well at the dimsum parlour. Hope you have a great rest of your stay in Hong Kong. Till next time! The girl with the moose antlers, Virginia

Virginia is an excellent guide to HK; knowledgeable, lively and fun. Her English (as you might expect from someone who has lived in Canada) is excellent. Be prepared to walk a few kilometres to cover all the sights (and smells) but it is well worth the effort. A great way to make the most of a short lay over in HK or orient yourself to the city. Wew

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your review. It really was a fun day showing you around Hong Kong. The girl with the moose antlers, Virginia

Virginia was very impressive in terms of her knowledge as well as passion towards food! Great ability to customize based on preferences as well. We considered ourselves adventurous, but she shared amazing experiences with us that we would not be able to find ourselves. Would recommend in a heartbeat!

We spent a lovely day with Victoria discovering for the first time Hong Kong. She took us on a tour of Hong Kong Island and of the "Dark side". We saw the main highlights of the city with an amazing lunch at a traditional Dim Sum place were Victoria showed us how to truly enjoy a meal "like the locals". Thank you Virginia

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Michela, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. I had such a great time with you and your hubby and the 8 hours just flew by. Hope you had a great time in Hong Kong, and safe travels back home! The girl with the moose antlers, Virginia

Over and beyond! Virginia was great and gave me an amazing tour around HK. She was mindful of my preferences and tried to customize. She wanted to squeeze in as many experiences possible within the time that we had. Very easy to be with (no awkwardness at all). It felt like we were friends a long time and catching up while going around. She was very knowledgable - knew her history and knows secret 'insider' information not everyone knows about. Highly recommended! She's worth it and more!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Celine, Thank you so much for your prompt review - I'm really sorry about my delayed response, it's been a busy few days ;) You were amazing and it was such a fun day with you. Thank you for being such a wonderful guest. I really hope to see you soon and so glad you enjoyed the tour. The girl with the moose antlers, Virginia

Virginia was a wonderful guide. The sign of a great guide is being able to read your customer and knowing how to tailor your tour. Virginia could tell that we were quite able and willing to walk even in the Hong Kong heat and adjusted to that. She also changed our lunch to a dim sum restaurant more patronized by the local crowd from the original plan. We wanted a tour that highlighted the local flavor, more a "day in the life of" as opposed to the typical tourist highlights and Virginia delivered!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Dale, Thank you so much for your kind comments and I'm very happy you enjoyed your time during the tour =) We were very lucky with the weather as it's currently T1 as I'm writing this so we lucked out with the great views of the city at the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade. I hope you have an amazing rest of your time in Hong Kong and enjoy your time in China as well. Thank you once again for being such wonderful guests with such open minds and an appreciation for different cultures!

Virginia was timely, very approachable and knowledgeable. Gave me more than I asked for for a private tour. 10/10 would recommend again. Try the stinky tofu....it is amazing!
