Hong Kong Private Tour - The crazy lines for the Big Buddha Cable Car

A rather ticked off poisonous snake tries to bite me!, the iconic Star Ferry sign and the Antonuccio's enjoy the view from my spot at the Peak

The boys and girls at the NP 360 / Big Buddha attraction have been messing around with the lining up procedures at the Tung Chung Terminal - yesterday 31.12.15 was madness and mayhem, this was the line just to buy the tickets for the cable car to the Big Buddha and it stretched way beyond this sign shown here... and once you have the ticket you join the line for the actual cable car which is just as long!!

These days I simply take the Bus No. 23 from the bus terminal next door to the Big Buddha, it saves a great deal of time...oh and they have raised their prices yet again.

I am at the point were I am overcoming my fear of poisonous snakes although this little bugger tried very hard to bite me.. it was very aggressive and a jolly good job it was in a cage. Mind you it spends all day watching it's brethren being sliced, diced, butchered etc to be turned into snake soup and snake wine.. I would be a little ticked off! - go here for all of my snake images.

I do private 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 40+ 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, simply send me a message for a prompt reply.

I also offer a candid and very personal view of what it is like to live in Hong Kong for over 4 decades.

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides, so explore this great city with one of the best tour guides in Hong Kong.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
