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 🤩

Redeeming the voucher was problem-free. The trip itself was varied and very informative because historical context was also well explained. We were also very pleased with the clean, clear German. Please note that the ticket only includes one ferry journey, so another one must be purchased for the return journey. But it is very cheap

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.

Jenny was the perfect driver to get to know Hong Kong. She was able to help us in all matters to get to know the essential highlights in a short time. Very recommendable
