Your guides for a Hong Kong Tour

Best Hong Kong Tours – 1000 reviews and counting!!!

Four years ago a young, british lady had the idea to share her love for Hong Kong with other people and started taking them on walking tours of Hong Kong that they, too, could experience Hong Kong almost like a local, even if it is for a couple of hours. She was mesmerised by the many facettes of Hong Kong – and she loved the local food too! 😁 So, she started by planning tours for foodies and provided Hong Kong Food Tours choosing some of the most amazing restaurants with Michelin stars and long history. Next were tours for people from any background and we had the Private Customised Tour adjusting them to the specific intersts like history, architecture, nature, etc. However, Hong Kong also has a darker side to it… So, she created a tour that talks about the open secrets of Hong Kong after dark – the Night Tour of Kowloon. Last but not least there are so many islands in Hong Kong but Lantau is the home of Tian Tan Buddha and some beautiful, historical fishing villages. For Laura, the founder of Hello Hong Kong, this was a good opportunity to bring Lantau and its history closer to people and show them first-hand why Lantau is called “the lungs of Hong Kong” on a Lantau Island Tour. Because more and more people started hearing about her tours, Laura started to look for people that share the same passion and the Hello Hong Kong Team was found. All guides have lived in Hong Kong for many years and will be happy to share their knowledge with you.

Let’s hear what Laura (the lady with the egg tarts in the picture) has to say:

It has been exactly 4 years since Hello Hong Kong set up and we have just hit 1000 reviews on TripAdvisor! It is a monumental achievement and I would like to thank my wonderful crazy team of fabulous tour guides and everyone that has come on a tour with us. We have conducted 1334 tours, had 5114 people come out with us and have been awarded 3 TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence! I couldn’t be more proud. Laura (that English bird that set it up)

So, book your tour with us for your next trip to Hong Kong. Even if you have already lived in Hong Kong for several years, there is always a chance that you might hear, see, try something that you did not know before! Give it a go! We will be happy to show you around!

Visiting Big Buddha on a Lantau Tour

Lantau Tour – Tian Tan Buddha

With over 80% of Hong Kongers practising Chinese folk religion such as Buddhism, the major centre of it, is the Tian Tan Buddha in Lantau Island. The statue symbolises the harmonious relationship of human beings to nature and faith. The Tian Tan or Big Buddha is situated near the Po Lin Monastry and is one of our stops on Hello Hong Kong Lantau Tours. She is named after the “Altar of Heaven” or “Earthy Mount of Tian Tan”, the Temple of Heaven in Beijing. Constructed from over 200 bronze pieces, is 34 meters (112ft) tall and weighs whooping 250 tons! The constructions began in 1990 and ended on 29th December 1993. The date is very important, as it is believed to be the day of the Buddha’s enlightment!

Something very interesting one notices going up 268 (twohundredsixtyeight!!!) steps to see the Buddha closely, is not only the disbelief how on earth one did not faint going up 😉 but also that every feature of the Buddha is a symbol of religious relevance. For example the positioning of the right hand means “imparting fearlessness” symbolising compassion of saving all beings from suffering. Where as the left hand rests on the Buddha’s lap palm facing heaven which represents “fulfilling wishes”, implying the vow to grant blessing and happiness to all. On your Private Lantau Island Tour, you will come across more interesting details about the people and their beliefs. For example, ask your well-informed Hello Hong Kong Tour Guide about the big fire of Tai O many hundreds years ago and which miracle put it out…

Romantic Moment on Private Tour

Private Tour Hong Kong – Time of your life!

There is no doubt that Hong Kong is a city full of contrasts! Buildings of the 19th and early 20th Century are in midst of skyscrapers built in the 21st century. You get the leisure tourist crossing the road next to the stressed businessman. You find tranquilty in the Hong Kong Park right in the rush hour. Then you decide on your Private Customised Hong Kong Tour to observe this world from a bird’s angle. To fulfil this wish, your brillant Hello Hong Kong Tour Guide will take you up Victoria Peak! But not to the regular observation desk… Oh no… Your guide has a much better idea… You will be brought to a little known lookout point and be amazed by the view, knowing that you don’t have to share this stunning view with thousands of other tourists! You are so astonished by this moment that your romantic side takes over control and you create YOUR very own Best Hong Kong Tour Moment on your day tour in Hong Kong! Lucky for you, your Hello Hong Kong Guide is there for you and takes an unforgettable picture while you fell in love again with your partner!

A view on a Hong Kong City Tour

City Tour of Hong Kong – The Majestic Skyline

There are many cities in the world that you will recognise by looking at a picture of their skyline. For example the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the skyline of New York, the skyline of Sydney with the famous opera. However, Hong Kong, home to Hello Hong Kong (the name gives it away 😉), has one of the most breathtaking skylines in the world! It is so impressive, that even the international building database Emporis named it number 1 out of 25 best city skylines that included New York, Bangkok, and Sao Paolo, according to Business Insider! Hong Kong has approximately 7840 high rise buildings and over 150 are standing taller than 150m (492ft). On your next sightseeing tour in Hong Kong ask your Hello Hong Kong Guide to take the famous Star Ferry over to Tsim Sha Tsui where you will be able to take a picture of this magnificent skyline.

Relaxation and chilling out in Hong Kong

Hong Kong Sightseeing – The Hong Kong Contrast

Thinking of Hong Kong, the first thing that comes to mind might be the hustle and bustle of the city. You might think of tall buildings, or you might still think about the fabulous Dim Sum Breakfast you had on your last Hello Hong Kong Food Tour! Did you know that in mid-2014 the land population stood at 6 690 persons per square kilometre? That makes Hong Kong one of the most densely populated places in the world!  With over 7 million people in a city it is hard to find tranquility and take a break from everyday life. On your next Hong Kong Private Tour, let us take you to Long Ke Wan Beach in Sai Kung and see the contrast to Hong Kong City for yourself! Ask your Hello Hong Kong Guide to take you up the mountain or to the beach and take a break from the city life!

Modern choice of mooncake set

Hong Kong Foodie Tours – The elaborate Mooncake

When you see mooncakes appearing in every stop of your Sightseeing Tour in Hong Kong, you will know it is that time of the year again! The Mid-Autumn Festival! This long-held celebration was traditionally a thanksgiving for the harvest. The moon plays a main role and is symbolised by the mooncake. This round shaped delicacy represents completeness and unity, and is meant to be shared to bring family and friends together. Whether you are on a Private Food Tour, Private Customised Tour, or a Private Night Tour with us, just simply ask your Hello Hong Kong Guide to include a mooncake in your Personal Tour Hong Kong.

The Confucian culture and display of shrines.

Sightseeing in Hong Kong – The close ties to death

The Confucian culture emphasises respect for one’s parents, elders and ancestors. With this in mind, the sight of ancestral shrines on our walking tours in Hong Kong, are not rare. These shrines are dedicated to deified ancestors and progenitors of surname lineages or families in the Chinese traditional religion. Depending on the ethnic background these temple settings may vary. Your well informed Hello Hong Kong tour guide will be able to tell you more about it on your Hong Kong sightseeing!

The best way to invite for tea!

Hong Kong Food Tour – The Yum Cha

When you are on our food tour in Hong Kong you will get to experience “Yum Cha”. This is a Chinese style brunch that involes drinking tea (Yum Cha! literally: Drink Tea!) and eating Dim Sum. Traditionally, Yum Cha is practised in the mornings or early afternoons. The custom is to pour tea for others first before one’s own cup. Good manners are to be the first to pour tea! So, if you want to impress your Hello Hong Kong Food Tour group and your guide, be the first to pour the tea for everyone! 🙂
