Overview

You may have been to Hong Kong before but do you know the story of how it came to be? Why was Hong Kong colonized by the British? Why was it handed back to China? What will become of it in 2047, when the ’no change for 50 years’ promise by Beijing runs out? Join this Hong Kong tour to walk the streets with a local guide who can answer all those questions and more.

Highlights

  • Comprehensive tour of the city
  • Small-group tour
  • Soak up the atmosphere on a walking tour

One-time British outpost and now a proud member of the People's Republic of China, Hong Kong has had a long and fascinating history. The history of the last century for both Hong Kong and China is mapped out in its streets for those who know where to look.
 This tour begins at Sheung Wan, specifically at Possession Point, where the British proclaimed Hong Kong to be part of their empire. It finishes at the Tamar Government Complex in Admiralty, once a dockyard of the Royal British Navy and now the headquarters of China’s Hong Kong Special Administrative Regional Government.
While this 3.5 hours tour is about the history of Hong Kong, we will also talk about what’s going on now for and where it is heading to in the future. You’re sure to finish this tour with a unique insight and understanding of Hong Kong that will enhance the rest of your stay here.

This was a great tour. Our guide was very informative and we saw a lot in the short time we had. He gave us a lot of history about Hong Kong which we never knew. It was a little wet the day we did this tour but that was not a problem, we were shown everything we were supposed to see. Would recommend this tour.

FABULOUR TOUR. I cannot say how much I love this tour. Our guide, Danny, was wonderful his manner of story telling is elegant and funny. As we walked and he pointed out historical places, he wound a whole story about Hong Kong's journey from backwater Chinese port, to a British Colony after the Opium Wars, to its struggles during WW11, and finally to the powerhouse luxury destination it is today. Without his perspective our time in Hong Kong would have been much less vibrant. THANK YOU, DANNY!!!!
