We had an awesome time with our tour guide Don! He was so informative and friendly. Tailored our tour to our interests. Saw a lot of the city and got a great feel for Hong Kong. Perfect day of our 3 day adventure!

We went to the Peak via the Star Ferry. Saw the Peninsula Hotel. Admired the view from the Lions Pavilion. We learned some fascinating history of Hong Kong. We saw such a diversity from the richest area to the poorest areas of Hong Kong. Walked through the food stalls. Went to the She Wong Sin snake shop and had snake and mushroom soup. A stop was made at Kung Wo Soybean Products shop where we had freshly made tofufa. Strolled through the large indoor fish and meat wet market. Then finished our tour with Dim Sum at Tim Ho Wan.

Amy Pekel gave us a fabulous custom tour of Hong Kong a few weeks ago. We said we wanted to see and do as much as possible- and she made that happen. We rode the tram, took the Star Ferry, rode the subway and crammed so much in to our time its hard to remember it all. Amy introduced us to delicacies like egg tarts, egg waffles, chicken sticks, Chinese donuts and Snake Soup All of which were wonderful - even the snake soup...!!. And all along the way she taught us things about Hong Kon and its people. We couldnt have had a better start to our time in Hong Kong. I highly recommend this tour, and this tour guide.

We wanted to get an overview of the city, before we set out on our own to discover it and this was the perfect way to do it. Our tour guide: Nathan, was super knowledgable, knew the city and although had only been in Hong Kong for four years, had a good grasp of the language, knew his way around and made it super comfortable to go and see a variety of sights. Did the usual tourist stops, but also hit the local areas and eateries, so felt much more at home. The snake-skin soup stop was a hoot! Also, taking the local MTR, was much better than by coach or taxi, so appreciated the quick and inexpensive way to get around. All in all, this was money well spent and I would highly recommend their services to anyone wanting a good time and well worth it!

Ben is a great tour guide, and has a deep knowledge of Hong Kong. As a family of five, he was sensitive to everyone's needs and interests. This is not a canned tour. He really tailors it to your interests, and there is plenty to see and do in Hong Kong. We really enjoyed the authentic lunch too!
