The absolutely, gob smackingly brilliant Ritz Carlton Hotel

The Ritz Carlton Hotel in Hong Kong has the top 16 floors of the 118 floor ICC building in Kowloon West, fabulous lobby, fabulous rooms, fabulous restaurants, fabulous swimming pool and then there is that bar, Ozone on the 118th floor, WOW! 

 Quite an understated sign really

I spend a fair bit of time in the Ritz Carlton Hotel, it is very popular with my clients and rightly so, if I haven't already mentioned it, it is simply brilliant - very few Hotels have the wow factor and the ability to take your breath away, the Ritz Carlton Hotel is one such Hotel and no matter how many times I take the trip to the lobby on the 103rd floor I always have a silly grin on my face. 

Even if you do not want to stay there then visit anyway to try out one of their restaurants or that bar Ozone!!!  the views are simply staggering.

On with the show. 

 The staff are very eager to please

I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, if it says I am free then I am available to do a tour!! Simply send me a message for a prompt reply

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
