Visit Tamar Park and learn about British colonization of Hong Kong and what happened to Hong Kong after 1898.   Afterwards visit the People's Liberation Army Building and learn about the one country two systems promise China made in 1984. Also talk about how confidence in Hong Kong's future collapsed after the Tiananmen Square massacre in 1989. At City Hall, see the Second World War memorial and learn how China planned its way to take over Hong Kong sovereignty.

SP was a great guide and good story teller. He answered all of our questions and really made me want to dive deeper into Hong Kong Island’s history. I spent the rest of the day on the island exploring on my own. I wish I could've done the other tours from this company as well but, theres always next time.
