We loved the tour so much! Summer was an amazing story teller, and she was very organized and prepared with a compelling story and visuals about her home town. She did an excellent job helping us to understand more about this city, and it was so informative and educational. We brought our 11 and 13 year old children with us, and it was a valuable learning experience for them. I highly recommend it!

Ashley is super nice girl and it was a pleasure to spend time together. She showed me many unique places in Kowloon area. And now i have nice photos. One more important thing is that she sent me photos at the same day, just couple hours after our photowalking tour!! ☺️ Wish you all the best, and you should make your YouTube channel definitely 🤩

We really, really liked it! We would do it again and again. Price-performance ratio was perfect, beer and soft drinks were free and they always tried to make sure we had drinks and chips. Great impression of Hong Kong through this tour.

Our guide Frankie was so lovely, he was very informative and so friendly. We are so much food. This was a fantastic tour! Highly recommend.

Well worth the day out. Our guide Angela was fantastic. Saw a side of Hong Kong we didn't expect. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
