This was an extremely interesting insight into the side not normally seen by tourists, particularly looking at the housing situation in a very crowded Hong Kong. S.P. was a great guide showing us the area with a lot of local knowledge and willing to answer all questions. There was a walk through the animal market, flower market and the bird market as well which started the tour off. There is a little walking but not onerous but wear comfortable shoes. Do not go if you are easily upset by seeing homeless people on the streets or if you may get upset by the living conditions seen.

What a fantastic time. I booked on a different tour, which cancelled due to low numbers, but when I rebooked on this one I was pleasantly surprised that I was the only person on the tour. Sandy, my guide, was lovely. Full of conversations and explaining everything and everywhere that I went. Encouraging me to try new and exotic dishes (Chicken foot soup). Helping me understand how things are made, where items are imported from and even allowed me venture into a kitchen, and behind the scenes of a live market. All really interesting and would thoroughly recommend this.

it was an exhilarating experience from the easy interactive process of booking as well as enjoying the actual trip with the cable car. The atmosphere at the destination was so peaceful and relaxing. A must for travelers.

Evangeline was the perfect host. We walked in the town a lot, took the metro to Kowloon and visited the Peak. Definitely worth having a guide for us as we were only in HK for a day and a half and we used the time well.

Ben was great, very helpful and really tried hard to make sure we hadvthe best experience according to our individual needs.
