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.

Highly recommended to tourists and Hong Kong locals. This is a great chance for learning more about the other side of Hong Kong. The history and culture of fishermen are extremely interesting. The price is affordable and the meeting point is really close to the MTR station.

The bus routes are well chosen. The 48-hour ticket is recommended: it includes many vouchers and 4 ferry trips per person. At almost all stops there is staff in the BigBus dress. Perfect if the hotel is near HongKong Central.

This sighseeing buses makes it easy to reach many of the popular sights! All of the 3 lines are great, but my favorite is the green line out to the magnificent Repulse Bay, Stanley and Aberdeen! Thumps up...

Very useful to see and to learn about the city of Hong Kong but unfortunately it was very fogy we couldn’t see anything with the train on top
