My full day customised tour of Hong Kong was truly an amazing experience! I was impressed with the local knowledge, experience and professionalism of Mel, my tour guide. Mel was fully committed to making my tour feel as authentic and memorable as possible. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody wishing to get a good overview of Hong Kong in one full day.

We were initially unsure about splashing out for a full day private tour, however it turned out to be one of the best days of our entire trip. Ryan met the 6 of us at our hotel as arranged. We had arrived late evening the night before and I have to say we weren't comfortable with the unfamiliar surroundings of the area (Kowloon) at night.
Ryan took us everywhere we had already requested, and more. His knowledge of the history and economics of HK was amazing and we found ourselves visiting so many places that we would never have gone to ourselves. Ryan also tried really hard to find us frequent food and drink stops that we would enjoy (and understanding our English need for beer and wine!). At the end of the trip we were confident to explore the city further the next day, and went to various places recommended by Ryan, none of which disappointed. Having Ryan show us how to use the different forms of HK transport was invaluable. Ryan also took the trouble to help us get our perfect photos, usually involving us all NOT looking at the camera which gave us far more amusing photos than the standard poses! Thank you Ryan - amazing day - and thank you Hello Hong Kong!

By the end of our full day tour with Sinclair it seemed liked we had been in HK for days. We saw so much while traveling like the natives on the ferry, bus, taxi, ding-dong, tram, mid-level escalators and MTR. So many highlights but the best was our dim sum lunch. While we enjoyed the brief rest, we also enjoyed watching Sinclair showing us how to order by filling out the menu forms and then waving them as high as you can to finally attract a staff member to take the order. All in all an exceptional day in HK. To top it off, Sinclair provided detailed instructions for our evening trip to the Night market and even provided a detailed plan with transportation suggestions for our Sunday excursions to HK and Landau Islands.

We only had a day to really see Hong Kong and I’m glad we had Mel as our guide. We ate too much at the hotel so unfortunately we didn’t eat as much delicious food as I would have liked but we did hit up a few great spots. Mel took us all over the city and adjusted quickly to our requests. He had a wealth of knowledge and I feel we saw places we would not have seen otherwise.

I was on a 26 hour layover in Hong Kong and wanted to see as much of the city as I could in this short time. Hello Hong Kong Tours was the best decision I could have made! As a young female travelling alone, I was very weary, and careful to choose a reputable company as I was looking for a private tour in order to maximise my time.

I booked an 8-hour private customised tour on the Hello Hong Kong website which was easy and provides the opportunity to list information regarding your interests in order for them to tailor your tour to your needs. I was staying at the Regal Airport Hotel, so I took the Airport Express (115 HK dollars return) to Hong Kong Station where I met my tour guide Mel. The train leaves the airport every 7 minutes and takes 24 minutes to arrive at Hong Kong Station, so plan accordingly if you choose this option.

Mel was super friendly and welcoming, and I immediately felt comfortable with him. He is incredibly energetic and full of interesting information. We visited a number of key tourist sites, but the highlights were visiting local stores, meeting the people and learning about the history of Hong Kong. We visited the Kai Fat tea shop where I was welcomed with sweets and tea (the owner is the sweetest lady who was very interested to learn about South Africa). We also met a wonderful local artist who painted a goldfish for me on a napkin.

We had a fantastic dim sum lunch at Lin Heung Kui where I had a truly authentic foodie experience! Mel took me passed a number of great stalls where I was able to purchase reasonably priced gifts. I also enjoyed learning about traditional medicines and visiting a snake soup shop.

We visited a number of religious sites from various religious groups which was enlightening and exciting to learn about.

We took a number of different forms of transport such as the MTR, a ding ding tram, a minibus, the Peak Tram and the Star Ferry.

Mel was a fantastic guide who is visibly passionate about his work. It felt more like exploring with a friend than being on a tour. His knowledge of South Africa and photography were a major asset. The company are incredibly responsive and were able adjust my start/ends times to suit my schedule. They also send through thank you emails detailing everything you cover during the tour which is incredibly helpful. This is a must for anyone who is visiting Hong Kong for the first time, or has a limited amount of time to see all the city has to offer.

I booked a 7 hour private tour, much to the concern of my husband and two girls (9 and 11) who thought that 7 hours would be too much. However time just flew in.
We had requested a tour to include local culture, food, Chinese medicine and shopping markets.
Joel set the pace wonderfully and was such a relaxed person that it felt like walking around HK with a friend.
I cannot recommend enough this tour as a way of finding out about HK. Do it early in your stay, as it helps orientate you.
We visited the bird market, fish (as pets) market, flower market and pet market. All with a great insight into HK culture.
We ate snake soup as a snack and stopped for a multitude of Dim Sum at a local restaurant.
We took a taxi up to the Peak and down on the tram.
Joel was patient throughout, especially when the girls and I wanted to spend time in some shops! But it gave my husband someone to chat with while we were inside :)
It was great to learn about Chinese culture and Feng Shui, as we saw buildings in a different way after that.
All in all, a great way to spend a day learning so much about Hong Kong.
We were not tired by the end as it was so relaxing. Thanks Joel!

My son and I are traveling together and literally just finished the eight hour tour which was so well worth it. Instead of going on a group tour where you may or may not be able to hear what the guide is saying we had 480 minutes of uninterrupted conversation about HK's history, culture, food, housing, politics, current events with our tour guide Mel on the bus, the MTR, ferry, lunch and hiking from site to site.

The great part about this tour is you dictate what your interests are and the tour is custom tailored to precisely that. We have some food allergies which I was concerned about so Mel found us a hip local HK restaurant that was sensitive to allergy concerns. What I thought might be a stressful experience turned out to be memorable as the three of had great conversation over lunch.

During the start of the tour my son (18) mentioned his interest in the Great Wall City of Kowloon which he'd read about and I guess is cult status on Reddit. No problem - Mel switched things around and at the end of the day we saw the Daoist monastery Dad wanted and the Wall City son wanted as our last events on the Kowloon side.

My hat is off to all tour guides as they must deal with all kinds and still be great ambassadors. Mel is a pro. On time, knowledge, friendly, willing and proud to show all sides of HK off to his guests. This is what's great to me about private tours - the time and connection you get with a local guide. The anecdotal stories you share and things you see off the beaten track are the vacation memories that stick to me.

When my son and I had dinner tonight I asked him what stood out and he said riding and talking with Mel on the double decker bus coming up from the fishing village to HK city center. I was snoozing at the time but he said at a particular point along the route the bus snakes through a series of high rise apartment buildings and from the top row of their double decker vantage point it gave him a very vivid Inception/Blade Runner 2049 type feeling. Funny what we absorb but the memory of the bus ride with Mel, apartment windows flying by, will stick with him forever.

Mel covered everything on our list including a few surprises thrown in. Super good guide. Tour is well worth the price of admission.

This is my second full day, private tour with Hello Hong Kong. If you are visiting for the first time, or only have a couple of days to spend in Hong Kong, I would highly recommend a tour with this company to kick off your trip. They cater the tour to what interests you and also give you the opportunity to experience as much as possible in a short amount of time. In addition, on our tour we tried every mode of public transport (MTR, Ferry, bus, ding ding, etc.) and were such pros by the end we could easily navigate anywhere in Hong Kong. Our tour guide Mel was fantastic! He knew we were adventurous eaters and so made sure to fit in street food stops and local (hole in the wall) restaurants so we could sample everything from chicken feet and sweet tofu to the best Dan Dan noodles I’ve ever had. We ended up returning on our own to some of the places Mel showed us because we liked them so much. It was an amazing day. I cannot recommend this tour company enough; it’s worth every penny.

My two teenaged daughters (on their first ever, and super brief, visit to Hong Kong) and I booked an eight hour tour with Kate. Having travelled the world, including increasingly with them, I can honestly say it was SPECTACULAR and I could not recco it more highly. Kate is the perfect guide - Australian heritage, so perfect English and a sunny personality, but due to her dad's career grew up in HK and knows every inch of the city. We went up the tram to the Peak, came back down and toured the historic district, rode the escalator in central district, saw Soho and the artsy district/where young expats live, had dim sum at a place packed with locals, took the ferry to Kowloon, subway back, top, front of the double decker bus out to Repulse Bay and Stanley - with stops for Boba tea, egg waffles and tons of other local snacks. Just based on tourist demographics, Kate does most of her tours for older American couples and small groups staying in town or on cruise ships, customizing it to the amount of time, sites, and walking they want to do. I will certainly reccomend her to my friends in those demographics. But my two teenagers want me to let travelling families know that they had an AWESOME time and that if you can get to Hong Kong even for a day with Kate - you will love it!

I was in Hong Kong on business but wanted to see as many things as possible after I finished my business meetings. I went on two private, customized tours (a four hour evening tour and a full day tour) with Hello Hong Kong on my last 1.5 days in the country before my flight home, so I would know what to see during future visits with my family. And that is exactly what I got - great customized tours!!

Karen took me around in the evening and Kate took me around for a full day. They were both extremely knowledgable in both history and culture, knew where to grab great food (went to eat Dim Sum in a place were the food was awesome but without Kate i would have never even considered entering the place, given its decor), knew how to navigate public transportation (we took subways and the ferry) and knew the short cuts and best viewing spots to see the attractions (like the 8 pm light show and quickest way to see The Peak at the least crowded time). And they were extremely proactive in customizing both what we were seeing (a local fish market, a temple, a church, a fabulous tea shop, etc.) and the time spent at each place, based on both my stated interests (which i gave them in advance) as well as their great listening skills where they could tell (and seem to predict) that i would have an interest in something, just based on our conversations along the route. They seamlessly appeared to adjust the tour in real-time to maximize my experience, making this a very personal, customized tour and not just a 'canned tour.' I would highly recommend both the company (easy to deal with) as well as the tour guides (Karen and Kate) that i had for my two tours. And they also sent along a great summary afterwards so i could remember what i saw and even some ideas for future visits.

I write the above as an experienced traveler (I have been to over 20 countries including Botswana,Tanzania, the Galapagos, Brazil, Italy, Spain, France, England, Japan, Israel, etc.)
I don't normally write reviews for many reasons (including because, more often than not, when I travel with my family my wife tends to write the review for us as she has more of an online presence than i do), but this tour was definitely worthy of a post.
