If you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides thus ensuring you get the best quality tour
If you do have any special requests or interests (such as history, culture, visits to special places) then I am more than happy to fit these in and you should let me know about these as soon as possible using my booking form.
An 8 hour tour is classified as an "all day tour" and is particularly appropriate for those having just one or two days to explore Hong Kong - my most popular tour is the 8 hour tour, the next most popular tour is the 6 hour tour.
If you book for example an 8 hour tour you CANNOT split the tour across 2 days, in this instance, this would be viewed as 2 separate tours and priced according to the price list.
The tour fee is the TOTAL tour fee

I can also accept payment in other currencies but subject to my confirmation in advance of the tour.
For cash payment I do not require a deposit before the day of the tour, we will settle up in cash on the day of the tour.

Please note that bookings are subject to my PERSONAL availability and are on a first come, first served basis
Important : Please note that I do tours from between 3 hours to 12 hours and it is my job to maximise what you see no matter how many hours you have booked. - Hong Kong has an area of roughly 426sq miles (1,100 sq km) as such attractions are widely spaced apart and this has to be taken into account when considering the length of a tour. It is simply not realistic to expect to see Hong Kong’s Top 10 attractions in 4 hours! (You would need a minimum of 3 days to do them all!) and this is where I come in - having lived in Hong Kong for 47 years and having done 50,000 + journeys on our subway system and 40,000+ journeys on the buses so I am an expert on timing and the most effective use of our public transport system. - the aim is simply to show you the best that Hong Kong has to offer. In addition I have done well over 2,000 tours which means I have a pretty fair idea of how to maximise what you see within the time frame of a tour and the longer the tour the more you will see, over 30% of my tours are 8 hours in length - no matter what tour length you decide on, whether it be 3 hours or 12 hours, I will show you the best that Hong Kong has to offer.
In tour guide language:-
a half day tour is 4 hours
a full day tour is 8 hours
My Private Walking Tours of Hong Kong are a combination of walking / using public transport with emphasis on using the MTR (Subway System) which is NOT subject to road traffic conditions - this is by far the best way to see Hong Kong and the most optimal use of your time, I am very sensitive to peoples physical condition in relation to walking and naturally I adapt accordingly no matter what the weather.
May - September is the Hong Kong summer, the temperature will be approximately 33oC or 91oF with 80% - 90% humidity - on my tours we will rest, have a drink and cool down..... common sense will prevail!
What makes my private tours different and memorable is that we walk and travel around on public transport (the best way to see Hong Kong!) so that you can get the real feel of the city with me as I have a real local knowledge of Hong Kong and have lived here for 47 years..
After the tour you will get my highly rated self guided tours allowing you to explore Hong Kong with confidence during the rest of your stay.
The cost of any public transport such as taxi's, buses, mini buses, ferries, trams, the Peak Tram, the MTR, the Airport Express, NP360 Cable Car etc. - in other words, transport costs are your responsibility. - sometimes in the interests of time I will suggest taking a taxi rather than other means of transport, I will always give you the option as taxi will be more expensive.
Meals / Drinks / Snacks / Souvenirs etc.
Entrance fees (where applicable) into parks and museums and the like - the cost of these is usually minimal and in some cases free.
Entrance fees and associated costs for EXAMPLE : the Ocean Park and Disneyland Theme Parks.
Please note - I pay my own transport and meal costs.
I kindly ask you to be very sure about booking a tour, particularly an Airport Layover | Transit Tour - as my cancellation policy is very specific and also very reasonable, for most of my tours my guests pay cash on the day and for whatever reason when they do not turn up or cancel 12 hours before the tour they think my cancellation policy does not apply, recently I have had 3 Airport Transit tours cancelled by message (without good cause) when I have been stood at the Arrivals Hall at the Airport waiting for my guest! and that was the last I heard from them... I lose a day's income and I have paid money to get to Hong Kong International Airport.. This is not a huge problem and it is just a tiny minority of guests but I feel I need to mention it as over a year it can amount to a considerable amount of money.
If for whatever reason you want to cancel your booked tour then please note the following:-
To cancel a confirmed tour email me or use my quick contact form to send me your notice of cancellation
I will always confirm a cancellation by email within 24 hours
Here are the conditions which are standard for Tour Operators around the World.
50% of the fee is payable if a tour is cancelled 4 -10 days before the tour.;
Less then 72 hours before the day of the tour - 100% of the tour cost;
If you do not turn up for the tour - 100% of the tour cost - as I get paid on the day of the tour getting paid for cancellation is problematical! I am able to provide a safe and secure method of payment by credit card (Mastercard or Visa) for cancellation fees
I am one of the only private tour guides in Hong Kong that will accept a booking without a deposit or full payment in advance so please be very sure about making a booking, last minute cancellations are almost impossible to fill with another tour booking!!
Please note that if you decide to cut the tour short for whatever reason (mainly tiredness, jet lag, kids playing up etc!) the FULL tour fee still applies, thank you for your understanding.
if a person in the group does not show up for any reason then the FULL tour fee still applies, thank you for your understanding.
….. and being English and a native English speaker we should have no communication issues!
Kids 16 and under at the time of booking are FREE OF CHARGE
