This was an extremely interesting insight into the side not normally seen by tourists, particularly looking at the housing situation in a very crowded Hong Kong. S.P. was a great guide showing us the area with a lot of local knowledge and willing to answer all questions. There was a walk through the animal market, flower market and the bird market as well which started the tour off. There is a little walking but not onerous but wear comfortable shoes. Do not go if you are easily upset by seeing homeless people on the streets or if you may get upset by the living conditions seen.
I was here during the riots in November and big bus tours attempted to do everything they could to continue service even though many of the roads are affected . the only thing they could have done a little bit better would be to communicate when an entire route is cancelled, they canceled the blue line the entire time I was here and did not have a representative at the main stop to give guidance.
I had a great time with my local tour guide. I sent some sights that I wanted to see to the guide in advance, and he mapped out our time together. He told my the ins and outs of the area, and it really felt like an immersive experience. I would recommend this tour highly!
Angel was a fantastic guide! A HK local and it showed, she knew all the best places to go and things to do. I did a full day with her on my first day in town and the rest of my trip wouldn't have been nearly as good without her knowledge. Highly recommended!
Evangeline was the perfect host. We walked in the town a lot, took the metro to Kowloon and visited the Peak. Definitely worth having a guide for us as we were only in HK for a day and a half and we used the time well.
