If you really want to know Hong Kong and I mean really know Hong Kong then book a premium private tour with Jamie today | when it comes to Hong Kong, NO topic is off the table no matter how difficult or sensitive the subject matter.
Award Winning Private Tours in amazing Hong Kong | Former British Colony from 1841 - 1997
….. and being English and a native English speaker we should have no communication issues!
A lot of people have forgotten that Hong Kong was a British Colony for 156 years from 1841 to 1997 and as such a lot of foreigners have made Hong Kong their home over the years and they are just as much a part of Hong Kong culture and just as local as any local born Chinese person, I have lived here under British rule for 25 years and I have lived here under Chinese rule for 22 years so I do have a pretty fair insight into Hong Kong culture and not forgetting that an awful lot of my wife's family are local Hong Kong Chinese and my wife is a local and her first language is Cantonese. .

Over the years I have had a great many guests who have visited Hong Kong in a business capacity and yet have not seen Hong Kong in a personal / tourist capacity, spending all their time attending business meetings / business lunches / business dinners and perhaps finishing up for a business drink in the Hotel bar!! No rest for the wicked.............
My premium private tours are the perfect tonic for a busy work schedule.....I am very flexible and can schedule a tour around your busy schedule, it may well be that a day / night or 3 hour or 4 hour night tour would be appropriate, we can certainly work something out.
In addition I work 7 days a week and public holidays and I can even do a 3 hour day tour if your schedule allows - so if you have free time and you want to save time then book a premium private tour with Jamie and pick my brain a little as well, I have been in business a long time in Hong Kong.
Although I have retired from the consulting business, I keep my knowledge base pretty current so all of my clients are able to avail themselves of my insights as they please - feel free to ask me any question you like, some examples are listed below.
The demographics and cultural mix of the Hong Kong population - the answer may surprise you
The differences between Western and Eastern cultures particularly as they impacted key business strategies involving marketing, planning and hiring
The friendly environment for business start ups and the competitive advantages of the HK business environment
The evolving local and regional political backdrop. ie China - ask me about the Greater Bay Area initiative - or download this PDF File
The nature of Hong Kong’s big business small government approach and the HK economic miracle
On my tours I cover most if not all of the following topics (not in any order) and neither do I work to a prepared script, you can ask me anything at all, I love a GREAT conversation, what better way to learn about this fabulous city, Hong Kong
Current affairs including a balanced, rational and impartial view of the June | July 2019 Extradition Bill Protests involving “millions” of protesters and what it means for Hong Kong.
Raising a family in Hong Kong (I am married with 3 boys)
Why Hong Kong is one of the safest cities in the World.
The rule of law and why Hong Kong still follows British Common Law
A brief history of Hong Kong (1841 - 2019)
The Opium Wars and I will be brief
WW2 & The Japanese Occupation
Languages and why English and Cantonese are still vitally important in Hong Kong
Lucky numbers / gambling / superstitions and how they affect society and how they impact on business
Education and why we have two school systems and why does the Government seemingly embrace academic mediocrity? whilst ignoring vocational training programmes for those who do not go to University
Politics (and I will be very brief!) and why talk of independence can ruin your life
Religion and trust me it is not at all what you would expect, it is such a fascinating subject here
The current housing crisis and the crazy property bubble and why Hong Kong Government policies (or lack of them) just make it worse.
Architecture and our amazing skylines and they really are quite stunning
Wealth & poverty - currently the biggest gap in the world and yet we have a very stable society (for the most part)
Homeless people and why our homeless figure is so, so low
Day to day life in the most vibrant, exciting city in the world....
The REAL reason you will never see a foreigner in 99.5% of "local" Chinese Restaurants... and it might just surprise you!
Finally - I do not mince words, I tell you what it is really like in Hong Kong and why you should not believe everything you read in the press!
I naturally have some limitations and I like to be upfront about them.... I absolutely do not look like George Clooney but have been called “fat George Clooney” by the wife, I am terrible at speaking Cantonese and no, I do not have a posh English accent, I amble rather than walking like a kitted out 25 year old trail runner in spandex, I am not a foodie in any shape or form but having eaten in well over a thousand Chinese restaurants means I have an opinion, I cannot deconstruct for you the fine details of a perfect Wonton soup (and why would you do that anyway!), I am not a tree and plant expert but I can recognise a car from it’s profile or engine noise half a mile away and no, I cannot get you into the China Club, primarily because I am not a member, I am not an award winning journalist or professional (whatever that means) and I do not have a Board of Advisors but my best friends are the best private tour guides in Hong Kong and I am absolutely not in any shape or form an old stuffed shirt.
