This is my second trip to HK and I wanted to see a different side, so I got a walking tour with BFT and it was great! This is a part of HK we have never been before (Tai Po) and it was really nice to have someone to give a walking commentary as we walked, otherwise w would have been lost! Our guide was really knowledgeable and it helped us appreciate HK even more, especially her history. The tour was well designed with enough to see, enough rests and a nice traditional snack at the end. Do note that this IS a walking tour so do be well prepared for it! But my wife and I were well prepared, and it was great.
