I did enjoy this tour even tho'at the last minute I nearly pulled out because the weather was so bad. It's a shame we could not have been picked up from the Cosmopolitan as the bus drove passed there to get to the restaurant so that was a bit off putting The restaurant was really nice and far nicer than I expected as some of the reviews weren't real great. There was heaps of food and plenty of choice . I wish i could have tried everything but everything I had was very nice. The sweats were especially great so make sure you leave room for those. Drinks were not at all expensive as I was led to believe and service very good. Guide tended to repeat himself a fair bit but was full of knowledge about Hong Kong.The laser lights didn't impress me but maybe thats because it was so overcast The city is magnificent by twilight,just like a fairy story. The markets were good but it was a bit tiring going back and forth to Kowloon and Hong Kong Is. The ferry ride was very good and unlike previuos comments there was plenty on offer at the bar if we so wished. It's a shame there weren't more people on the ferry as I felt it was a long ride for so few people. Hong Kong is a beautiful City and this tour showed it off very well indeed.Many Thanks for making a great holiday memorable
Food was out of this world, and the sites were wonderful, it far exceeded our expectations. And the bonus was ending up at the market - not expected but brilliant. The icing on the cake was the boat trip, it was the last night of our trip and there was us, on a boat, viewing Hong Kong and Kowloon by night, breathtaking.
Administration was spot on. Vouchers and instructions awaited us on arrival at our hotel, pick up was pretty much on time - amazing given the traffic - and coach was clean , comfortable and well driven.
Due to other hotel pick ups there was rather too much criss crossing through the tunnel between Kowloon and the island, but without a second bus, this was inevitable. Meal at Bubba Gumps was fine, more TGI Friday than gourmet dining, but if you like staeks, ribs or prawns, no problem. (No veggie option though). market vivit was short and sweet, good for a recce but if you want a long browse round make a seperate trip. Boat trip was most enjoyable. Large craft, exclusive to our group of 24, free drinks lberally and rapidly served. A great way to spend or final evening in Hong Kong. Recommended.
f you are looking for sightseeing rather than just shopping or theme park in Hong Kong, the See Hong Kong Pass is a very good choice and provides huge savings. 1-day pass costs only $399 and I did 4 activities which are worth around $700, quite a good deal, right?
I started the day early and joined a Big Bus Tour (Hong Kong Island). The bus took me to the Peak Tram Station where I did a free round trip of the Peak Tram. And then headed to the Kowloon side to have a free Dim Sum lunch at a very cool Chinese restaurant. Got some time left, I did some shopping at the Kowloon station shopping mall and then went to the DHL Hong Kong Balloon nearby to see the beautiful skyline of the city at 100m high.
As I travel by myself, I really love to explore the city and get to try every as much as possible. Great that the pass has around free 20 activities to choose from , so it is quite flexible for trip planning. If I got one more day, I will definitely get a 2-day pass to see more, especially the Big Bus Stanley Tour and the wine tasting activity!

Missed our hotel pick-up. Was our fault. We misread and assumed that it was our hotel Kowloon Shangri La, when in fact it was the Kowloon Hotel. Thankfully the staff at Shangri La were so helpful and called the emergency number and arranged a taxi for a quick and furious trip to the Bubba Gump Restaurant. Once we were onboard, all was a really spectacular evening with the views and laser light show on the journey to the catamaran ride. Turned out to be one of the most wonderful evenings ever! Oh, and the taxi ride was quite exciting as well:) Tour guide was an eagle eye for keeping the group together. Quite a handsome feat with all of the crowds. Will try more tours on our journey to Bangkok at the end of July, and promise to pay special attention to hotel pick-up!
Pick up on time
Tour was very good although the meal was at Bubber Gump at The Peak as the revolving restaurant was closed (we looked that up as nothing was said)
The tour was good but we seemed to switch from Kowloon to HongKong island back and forth quite a bit!
K to HK for dinner, to K for evening market, to HK for cruise, to K for drop off!
Time at each location was about right
We would recommend this to any first time visitors to Hong Kong
A good evening introduction to Hong Kong! After a pickup in Kowloon we traveled by bus to Hong Kong Island with our guide, who spoke good English and was informative and amusing! The air-conditioned coach with leather seats was very comfortable and after a tour of Central and Wan Chai we arrived at the Revolving 66 restaurant and took the observation elevators to the 62nd floor. Even though I have a fear of heights these elevators are nothing to fear! They are smooth and slow and don't have nasty bits like glass bottomed floors. Glass in only from the waist upwards so is very comfortable and fabulous photo opportunities. The meal was buffet style, plenty to eat, lots of seafood and a Japanese section, but was average to good, as most buffets so please don't expect anything spectacular! The drinks were expensive and not included in the cost of the tour. The views were most spectacular from this revolving restaurant, but not the best place to see the "Symphony of Lights" show, best on the 7.30pm cruise. Following dinner we went by coach to Temple Street night markets for 40 minutes, which was not really long enough, but a good taste. From here we took the coach back to Hong Kong Island and took a 1 hour cruise around Victoria harbour on a boat that was a bit shabby. Drinks on board were included and were fairly standard, IE stubby or a house wine. An electrical storm began as were were out on the harbour which added to the harbour lights! Our guide was fabulous and funny and this was a great introduction to Hong Kong. Although I was traveling solo I met lots of people from all over along with some fellow Aussies and they were all great company for the evening.
Restaurant was great, plenty of time and good food. We had enough time at night markets; cruise was great too. Only problem was too much driving back and forth from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island. Perhaps restrict this tour to two venues instead of three.
Very poor commentary, disappointed with the restaurant layout, have to sit on long table with the group, not good for conversation, good selection of food but drinks very expensive. If you want to watch the symphony of lights then this tour is NOT for you. The restaurant is on Hong Kong island, the best place to watch the lights is the waterfront on Kowloon. Good photo opportunities on the night "junk" and free alcohol whilst on board.
Was disappointed with the fact that we had to run all around Hong Kong and Kowloon to activate our entry passes to the various venues.
Would have been a whole lot better had we been able to pick them up all at the same time from the one location.
The day we tried to utilise our Macau Ferry one way pass, As we were staying in Kowloon and it was a wet miserable day, decided to go to the Kowloon ferry departure point (SAME COMPANY AS HONG KONG SIDE)
They refused to acknowledge the pass, so we purchased two tickets (even though we had free ones)
Due to all the inconvenience caused through having to run around from here to there, we did take advantage of all that we could have.
Being senior citizens, it all became just too hard.
Therefore we would not recommend this deal to anyone.
