Amy was an amazing guide for our group of 8 (2 seniors, 4 adults, and 2 kids) on our tour of Sheung Wan. Some in our group have lived in HK and/or been to HK many times already, but we chose this tour to explore a part of the city we were not familiar with. Amy contacted us in the days before our tour to learn of any physical limitations and general interests in order to tailor our tour to our specific needs. It was a really interesting tour that took us to some off the beaten path spots. We sampled some very "local" and authentic food and drinks, toured the Graham street market that's been in existence for over 150 years, saw some interesting street art, and explored some antique shops. Amy went "above and beyond" in the following ways: 1. navigated a walking tour that limited the number of stairs to accommodate my 87 year old father in law 2. physically assisted my father in law without being asked 3. was flexible with her time 4. negotiated a fair price for a mahjong set from a street vendor 5. the in the days before and even after, made herself available via text to recommend restaurants and other points of interest around the city. Thank you Amy for all your time and consideration in making our tour fun and memorable. We had a blast and highly recommend this tour!

She really tailored our tour to things that interest us - street art, local breweries, beautiful parks, and so on. She also shared her experience of life in Hong Kong and being a Hing among-er-allowing is a glimpse into the great city. Sheung wan is a beautiful old part of HK.

Jacky was prompt and we had no trouble finding him as we exited the ferry on Hong Kong Island. We had informed him about what color hats my husband and I would be wearing and he let us know what his hat looked like. He is friendly and kind, and because we are Seniors, we felt like we were touring with a favorite nephew. We chose this tour because we have been to Hong Kong many times. Although we have been to Sheung Wan before, we wanted to know more about it. Jacky showed us that part of HK Island as we would never have been able to do on our own. He was intuitive to quickly see what our interests are. Jacky is also willing to be very flexible with the itinerary, even on the spot. Our tour ended with a ride on the iconic tram, something I have always wanted to do. Jacky found seats for us right at the front of the car. It was so much fun, and gave us a different perspective of the route than one gets on foot. The next time we visit Hong Kong, I will check to see what other neighborhoods Jacky can reveal to us.
