You will travel with your private tour guide to Kowloon Walled City Park by MTR. The park hides a fabulous history as the site used to be home to one of the biggest independently administered Shanty town.

This walking tour will enable us to discuss Hong Kong’s history, from the opium wars to the Handover but also the various migrations that took place in the 20th century.

Your private tour guide will go through the many reasons why the area was converted into a Chinese garden and the codes that are now in place to make it a peaceful place.

We will finish the tour by taking you to ‘Little Thailand’, near the old airport of Kai Tak, where you will be able to enjoy lunch or to Mongkok.

Stephanie our guide did an amazing job of telling the story of the area in incredible detail. No notes required here - just straight from the heart tales from the past. I’ve been in HK since 1992, and I still learnt loads. A grand day out :-)

This tour included so much more than I expected, with addition of nearby interesting sights and places as well as the Walled city garden. Stephanie is a very engaging and knowledgeable guide. I would highly recommend this company - with clear and easy meeting instructions too. Looking forward to future tours with Stephanie!

This is my second tour with HK a la carte with Stephanie as guide. I can highly recommend the Kowloon Walled City tour to anyone interested in HK history. Even if you have a very god knowledge of HK's past and have previously joined other guided tours, I have no doubt Stephanie will be able to provide pieces of information you have never heard before. A great day out with family and friends

Fabulous trip. The walled city was demolished in 1990 and replaced by a park so we knew there was not much to see physically. But Stephanie wove such a compelling story that we were able to experience the walled city and feel what it was like!

Stephanie's knowledge and stories brought to life an interesting and little-known history of Hong Kong's Kowloon Walled City area. Highly recommended.
