Private Customised Walking Tour
As avid travelers we know that it is often difficult to know what to do and what to see, especially in cities like Hong Kong where there are endless possibilities.
Take a private customised walking tour and we will put an itinerary together that ensures you see the things that will interest you the most and at a pace that suits you.
HALF DAY OR FULL DAY PRIVATE CUSTOMIZED TOUR
Our private customized tours last between 4 hours (half day) and 8-hours (full day); its your choice. If you are taking a half day tour and would like to include a food stop we recommend taking 5-hours.
Your private tour guide will meet you at your hotel, your cruise terminal or the airport if you are on a layover.
When you book your tour you will answer a number of questions about your interests and what you hope to get out of your tour. We will then use your answers to design a tour specifically for you.
If you have not been to Hong Kong before and have no preferences we will give you a comprehensive city tour. We will focus on exploring back streets, local neighborhoods and learning about the culture and history of Hong Kong. We will visit a mix of areas on both Hong Kong Island and in Kowloon (unless you request otherwise).
We can combine some of the must see’s like Victoria Peak and riding the Star Ferry with something a little more off the beaten track to ensure that you see Hong Kong for what it really is; a city of contrasts where the metropolis sits side by side with national parkland, where the super-wealthy walk shoulder to shoulder with people living in poverty, it is a city where east truly does meet west like in no other.
If you are a foodie but do not want to do our full food tour we can combine foodie elements into your tour, ensuring that you still get a wonderful mouthwatering taste of Hong Kong.
If you would like to pick up some souvineers en route we can show you our favorite markets. Or perhaps you have something specific which you would like to buy, let us know and we will make sure that you do not leave Hong Kong without it.
Perhaps you are a budding photographer and would like to visit the most photogenic locations…. Whatever it is we will ensure that your customized tour is exactly what you are looking for.
We cover the following topics on every tour, how much detail we go into depends on how interested you are in each topic! Colonial History, Opium Wars, WW2 History, Politics, Current Affairs, Day To Day Life Of The Average Hong Konger, Poverty, The Housing Crisis, Religion, Education, Food, Architecture, Language.
We do accept last minute bookings so if you are already in Hong Kong please do contact us for our last minute availability. We have been known to start a tour with an hours notice!
All prices listed are in Hong Kong $ and are the TOTAL price for the tour and NOT the price per person. Children aged 11 years and under are free of charge. Anyone aged 12 or over is counted as a full person. For numbers over 8 people please add HK$250 per addition. Prices listed include the costs of public transport used during your walking tour (MTR, bus, tram, ferry) but not the costs of any taxis which you may choose to use. Prices do not include entrance fees (if any) or any food/drinks which you choose to buy during your tour. Our tours are walking tours and we make use of public transportation to travel around. This means that we will be using the MTR (train), buses, ferries and trams.
If you are travelling to Hong Kong with children Hello Hong Kong has you covered. We are very good at designing child friendly Hong Kong city tours and keeping kids entertained. Many of our guides work with children outside of their tour guiding jobs; either in children’s theatre or as teachers, nannies or children’s entertainers. We know that making sure that your children have a fun and educational day will mean that you have a brilliant day! Find out more about our guides by clicking here.
If you have 6-hours or more between flights make the most of your time and book a Hong Kong airport layover tour with us. You will be whisked from the airport into the city in less than 30 minutes on the Airport Express. See the best view in the world from Victoria Peak, ride the Star Ferry, enjoy an authentic dim sum brunch with the locals, or maybe have a cocktail in a rooftop bar. It sure beats sitting in the airport doesn’t it! Simply add an airport pick up to your booking or use our easy to follow instructions and take the airport express solo and meet us at the in-town station.
As a cruise ship passenger you will most probably only have one or two days in Hong Kong. We understand how important it is to make the most of your short time in port and to see the best of Hong Kong in a time efficient way. Book our customised tour as your Hong Kong Land Tour and we guarantee that the best tour of you cruise will be the one that you take with us.
PEOPLE ON PRIVATE CUSTOMIZED TOURS
“Every step of the tour was full of cultural and historical information, all absolutely fascinating. This is a tour for anyone who wants to experience unabridged Hong Kong living, rather than a tourist edit.”
Barbara and Khachik, UK
“My husband and I booked a private 4 hour tour with Laura for the morning of our first day in Hong Kong. And we are so pleased we did! We specifically asked for one temple, some culture, some history, some architecture and a little bit of food. We got all that and so much more. What we got was the super-friendly Laura with her enthusiasm and love of Hong Kong shining through everything she shared with us. We got endless tips and ideas for how to spend the rest of the week….we’re already thinking we need to plan a return trip to see everything she has recommended. When you book a private tour there’s a always a little bit of risk involved…you may feel you are paying a premium for a customised experience and sometimes you feel that the end result is not worth the extra cost. Not with Laura. We felt we got tremendous value for money as well our expectations being more than met. Spending a few hours on one of Laura’s expeditions is the best possible way to kickstart your visit to Hong Kong – do it!!!!”
