  • What You Can Expect

    Start your half-day tour of Hong Kong Island with hotel pickup, and head to the famous fishing village of Aberdeen. Here you'll see Hong Kong's junk-dwelling floating community, still very much a part of Hong Kong life. You have the option to board a sampan (at an additional cost), for a close-up view of waterborne life.

    Next up is a short visit to a well-known jewelry factory, where craftsmen fashion meticulous works of art from gold and gems. Then pass picturesque Repulse Bay on the way to your next destination, the famous Stanley Market, where you can pick up bargains at just a fraction of the price in town.

    Your tour of Hong Kong Island includes a tram ride for panoramic views of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the surrounding islands. With an eight-minute funicular railway ride, take in the sweeping vista of Hong Kong’s skyscrapers before you’re taken back to your hotel.

    Cancellation Policy

    Package is cancellable prior to three days from the commencement of the service.

Great half day tour with highlights of Hong Kong if your time is limited. Short boat trip ideal for taking photos of the sampans - then walk round Stanley markets for souvenirs followed by drive up to the peak. Good views over the harbour from the peak although the view is better from viewing area further up which you can do if you have more time. Then steep ride down in the tram back to the city

My first visit to Hong Kong was made amazing by booking this tour. Very used to travelling on my own but was made to feel very welcome by Stephen Chow and the driver , very interesting guide, would recommend this tour as a first time visitor, and look forward to visiting again and booking on another tour with La Vacanza Travel.

This is an absolutely brilliant way to see a lot of the city... very useful guide showed us more than was on the trip.

An excellent introductory tour to Hon Kong island, spoiled a little by the weather which was wet and cloudy for a large part of the trip. But this should not detract from the itinerary, which covered all the major sites on the island very well, with a knowledgable guide.

This La Vacanza Travel half day island tour is so worth it! Every minute of the tour was informative, educational and interesting. At Aberden Bay, riding a sampan extra for the ticket is a must to see the houseboats moored next to modern yachts, see city view from the water. You can see washer/dryer, refrigerator and family dog on the houseboat. We even saw a 40/50 person dragonboat sitting on land. We didn't realize Aberdeen Bay area was a lower economic area....of course, many residents are fisherman! Another highlight was Victoria Peak where the bus dropped us off at the top to look at the awesome view of HK. The tram ride to the bottom was included in the tour. This half day tour is a must if you have only half day to see HK. You'll see the highlights and feel that you really saw HK!
