How lucky? Only four of us on tour.The other couple only spoke Cantonese and we only English. Ming did a great of doing the tour in both languages. We did in fact see a different side of Hong Kong. From the Star Ferry to the Ding Ding Tram to a sampan ride and Taoist cleansing ceremony and then into a public housing area with market and then the highlight lunch in a local cafe with us the only Europeans and definitely eating authentic HK food. All this followed by a walking of the old quarter on Hong Kong Island. The cleansing ceremony was something we didn't know was part of the tour and are so grateful to have seen it. The other big plus with this tour was there were no extra hidden costs. We had previously done a half day tour with one of the larger companies only to find out that when we got there there was an extra charge of HKD 70 per person for a ride with one of the grumpiest ladies I have ever met. Ming was a great host always willing to give that little bit extra to make sure that we enjoyed the tour.

The guide was very informative and having a driver as well on tour was convenient.The only change I would have liked is perhaps more emphasis on The Peak district rather than the housing estate at Aberdeen. Sampan ride was good, something different.
