    What to Expect
    Your guide meets you at your cruise ship's dock and takes you to your first destination, a tram from the early 1900s. Step on board to ride the tram and imagine the Hong Kong of last century. Then disembark at Sheung Wan and being your walking tour on Bonham Road.

    Check out street vendors that sell dried squid and other seafood, then cross over to Cat Street where you can find bargains at the many galleries and antique shops. Make your way to Hollywood Road to peruse shops that carry historical artifacts, Chinese furniture and porcelain wares. Then stop in the largest Man Mo Temple in Hong Kong, decorated with large incense spirals hanging from the ceilings and images of Chinese deities.

    Leaving the temple, check out a feat of engineering: the world’s longest covered escalator — the Central Escalator, which measures 2,500 feet (800 meters) long and transports people around hilly Hong Kong. After a spin on the escalator, step into one of Hong Kong’s oldest food markets. Taste delicious Southeast Asian fruits such as rambutan, mangosteen or durian, then head into Cha Chaan Teng, a cafe that serves up tasty traditional Chinese snacks such as egg custard and milk tea. Your authentic experience of Hong Kong winds down as your guide escorts you back to your ship.

    Day Tour - Ocean Park
    Transfer from Hotel to the Park and Return was well organised and on time. However the stop to the jewelry factory although a nice addition was our second visit to it, the previous visit when undertaking a different tour. The sales assistants followed you about the store which can be a bit unnerving. The guide "Elton" provided a copy of the Ocean Park map and indicated the best sequence to see that attractions, i.e from the top of the hill down to the main gate. The best way to the top was by cable car which gave excellent views and if you had a fear of heights could be a bit disconcerting when at the top of the first peak so perhaps use the train to the top instead. Ocean Park was great, although undergoing renovations to 5 major rides. The Aquariums were excellent and the Pandas !!! wow!!. a MUST SEE. The Park was also embracing Halloween and was dressing up to reflect this event by having staff dressing up and entertaining the visitors. The Halloween Fest Show which although the dialogue was in Cantonese the acts were Fantastic !!! another MUST See. We didn't do any of the Rides or Rollercoaster, us being oldies but if we were there with our grandkids they would have loved the rides from what we saw of them. Overall a MUST Visit !!!

    Excellent from beginning to end!
    We have nothing but good things to say about this tour and tour company. We were picked up as promised at our hotel. We were dropped off at the ferry dock to another tour representative who got us to the ferry, when docked at Macau we were met and taken right to the tour bus. Mario, our tour guide was wonderful, he was very informative and personable. He made sure everything was going well with everyone every step of the tour. The included lunch was good and we had the buffet all to our small tour group. We went into the largest casino and one owned by Jackie Chan with gold bars in the floor. Other tours had a gambling options, but we chose to see Macau and we are not sorry that we picked this tour. Thanks so much!!

    Don’t miss this trip
    This trip is a must do you will see so much and we were lucky to have the fabulous Biddy explaining everything in great detail and with such knowledge The boat trip was very good and the 70 HKD was worth every penny it’s great for taking good photography The jewellery stop was a bit pointless but did show local craft men creating some. Stanley market was fun but we got a couple of local beers and sat on the waterfront Victoria peak was the peak of the trip absolutely amazing views of the city,there is a Madame Tussauds as another place to visit whilst up there,we descended on the funicular tram,sit on the right hand side of the carriage for best views We left the tour at Victoria park and had a wonderful time there just relaxing Thank you Tour East

    Good but hidden costs
    This tour was a half day hong kong island tour. You have to meet at a hotel lobby which for us was quite far from where we were staying. The first stop was at a fishing village, but you had to pay for the boat tour and this felt very pressured. There was a guy who took photos of us but he came.back later to sell them to everyone, nice souvenier but again a lot of pressure to buy.you go to a jewellery factory with again more pressure to buy. Victoria peak was good & this was included in the tour. If parts of this tour were amended it could be a really nice half day tour but as it stands it needs a lot pf improving with less focus on trying to get people to spend money.

    Wonderful day
    My husband and I went on this trip and it was such a great day. Ben was our guide and he was so knowledgable, informative and helpful. The staff were all so helpful that we dealt with. You get the ferry to the island where a bus collects you to take you to points pf interest on lantau island. The lunch is included in the monastery and it is so tasty. You then get the cable car which is so beautiful. At the other end the coach collects you to take you back to the hotel. The day we went there were a lot of road closures around hong kong but the staff were amazing at getting us all back to our hotels. Thanks for a great day. This is a great way to see lantau island!

    Although our guide was great, the trip was disappointing. We booked because of hotel pickup and drop off, this did not happen. At the end of the tour we were pretty much left stranded at the end of the tour. I wouldn’t recommend this tour

    Excellent. Totally recommend
    I booked this trip as an orientation trip on our first morning. Very good decision. Traffic is always busy but our guide Dino was great. Informative and funny. Recommend the water boat trip as an extra. Trip very reasonable. Diamond factory tour bit unnecessary but view it as a pit stop. Stanley market was interesting. Grabbed a quick lunch on the waterfront. Victoria peak coach trip was but hairy on way up but well worth the views. Enjoyed tram trip down. Very reasonable price for great trip

    Half Day Tour of Hong Kong
    When you are in Hong Kong for only a short time this tour is a good one to do. My only criticism was that we had to pay an additional charge to go on a short boat trip around Aberdeen.

    Nice tour of some city highlights
    Nice tour of the city conducted by Dino. The highlight was definitely The Peak Lookout and tram ride. Had lunch at Stanley Markets too which was relaxing. Didn't enjoy the stop at the diamond factory. Staff followed you around like ambulance chasers. Overall a nice day and some great facts about Hong Kong provided by our tour guide.

    The show is great but pay no attention to the drinks.
    As a first timer to Hong Kong, the shear size of everything was breathtaking. The ship was nice, but don't count on having nice drinks.

    Great experience
    We booked a symphony of lights cruise for the Friday night and we weren’t disappointed. The boat itself was fine, free drinks were limited in choice but beer was always available. Not much in the way of service but then you don’t really get served!! So that’s fine... It’s the experience of seeing HK lights and skyline from the river that’s the main draw... it was amazing and something I’d certainly recommend.

    This is a pretty good trip
    You go way high in gondola cars up the mountain. If you are really fit, you can walk it, but it is steep and far. Or take the cars up and walk down. Gotta be quite fit though!

    Great trip
    We did this today as we are only in HK fir 3 days so need help finding stuff. This was a good trip there was s couple of Bits to mention Our hotel wasn’t on the pick up list so we had to get to one that was then it was a really good guide and driver we went to a few main sites the peak view and Stanley market we did a boat trip first but that wasn’t included in the price that was 70hk dollars extra pp. also the tour doesn’t finish until 2pm so it’s suggested to get lunch at Stanley market but you only have an hr so best go to the Macdonald’s that’s there for speed. The only down bit was the diamond shop it was clearly for commission all the couples had a lady following them around the shop it was really weird and made you uncomfortable so you don’t buy so it backfires in them. Other than that great trip great driver so glad we did it

    Not to be missed
    Wonderful trip all round. The guide was excellent, the cruise out to the area the dolphins live in was peaceful and relaxing with amazing views and then the dolphins appeared. We saw 8-10 individuals, from older, very pink ones to younger mottled ones. It was a magical experience and I can't recommend it highly enough. I booked online before I went and didn't have any problems. The tour operators pick everyone up from outside an easy to find hotel (near the Tsim Sha Tsui station) and take you out to the boat by bus, then drop you back in Kowloon afterwards. Don't miss this Hong Kong highlight.
