What People Are Saying About Hong Kong
We enjoyed learning Hong Kong history and viewing historical sites. The guide presented interesting stories about the culture and traditions of Hong Kong. She was knowledgeable and answered our questions happily and without hesitation. After the tour we were able to educate a friend of ours who has been living and working in Hong Kong for three months. We would definitely recommend this tour to all visitors.
Thank you for having all the people in red jackets at all the stops to give direction and help
We stayed at Kowloon east so we had to make our way to central Kowloon in order to take the trip. Keep this in mind as the Hong Kong traffic is always busy, the metro is a great way to get around. Vincent our guide was superb, he had great knowledge about the areas we visited and really made the tour very personal. He also left us map and gave us some tips about other places to visit and the best wys to do them. You will stop at a jewellery shop which has some nice items. We didnt plan on buying any from the outset, so stick to your guns as the sales people can be pursuasive, but never pushy. The boat trip at Aberdeen is worth doing and really doesnt cost too much. All in all a great few hours out.
Bargain for entry into Disneyland HK, I thought it was too good to be true, but the tickets came through within 24hrs of my payment; when I called up to check with the local vendor Liuda, the contact centre representative was professional and nice with good English. I am pleased to have used this service and have made many recommendations to friends, family and colleauges since my visit. Well Done.
We took this trip on our first evening in Hong Kong. The boat was a little old but perfectly functional (maybe some cushions could enhance it a bit). The drinks service was good and not limited at all. The boat handlers were very good, ensured everyone's service and were quite cheerful. Overall a nice experience that I would recommend for the price.
