Small-Group Historical Walking Tour of Hong Kong

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 76.00
2 travellers
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.
  • A small-group walking tour through Hong Kong
  • Capped at only 12 people for a personalized experience
  • Get an insider's look at off-the-beaten-track local spots
  • Learn about the city's colonial past during fact-filled visits
What to Expect
Your tour begins at Possession Point, where the British landed to take control of the city in 1841. After listening to a brief history of colonial Hong Kong, the group, capped at 12 people, walks along the Sun Yat-Sen historical trail, which pays tribute to China’s founding father. Get an insider’s look at the popular Sheung Wan district, one of the first neighborhoods the British settled and now a vibrant food and shopping hub. Explore overlooked sights, such as the Victorian Prison Compound, Hong Kong’s first prison, and the oldest Anglican church in Asia. Your guide also introduces you to contemporary Hong Kong’s up-and-coming places, such as the Fringe Club, a forum for emerging artists. The walking tour concludes at the Wan Chai waterfront, where the city celebrated its transfer of sovereignty to China in 1997. Enjoy time exploring the waterside promenade on your own before heading back to your hotel.

Our guide, Danny Fung, had an encyclopaedic knowledge of Hong Kong's social, economic and colonial history. He guided us through many hidden treasures which we would not have discovered ourselves. His detailed knowledge really brought the whole experience to life. Highly recommended!

I would contact the company that markets, and organise the tours. As you can't post links in answers, do a search for urbanadventures
