Doing what: Hong Kong Harbor Night Cruise and Dinner at Victoria Peak
We did not get the pick-up from our hotel and had to make our own way to the Excelsior Hotel but as there were only 5 of us on the evening excursion, we were not too bothered about this. We ate at Bubba Gump on Victoria Peak as the original location stated is still undergoing refurbishment. Food was fine, plenty of it and we did have a small choice of menu. Not a very refined restaurant, but service was quick and as said, food was ok. The stop for the laser show was disappointing as it was misty from the pollution that now plagues Hong Kong and the laser show just consists of buildings flashing lights. Temple Street market was busy and bustling, very authentic. We still had a huge sampan on the harbour even though there was just 5 of us and this part was great as it is a lot clearer seeing the buildings lit up from sea level. Overall very good value for money.
Nice short tour of the city. Got some great pics from Victoria Peak!
great value good trip to take if your on a tight time scale. The time at the jewellery factory was not necessary we could have had longer at the peak.
This was a really good tour and good value for money, I would recommend this tour to anyone who has not been to Hong Kong before. The guide, James, pointed out lots of places of interest, and described the local culture. The stops on the tour were also of great interest, Stanley Market, Aberdeen Harbour and Victoria Peak.
In my opinion, an excellent value for money, tour.
This tour was conducted on Easter Sunday when Hong Kong was very busy, there was an accident on the way up to Victoria Peak but the guide and his coach driver did their best to make sure that everything worked out and we got what we expected from the trip. A fantastic day out
Great tour and we had a great view from the peak, our guide May was great
This is a must Stanley markets well worth the shopping for gifts Victoria Peak great view of Hong Kong when weather is good.

Doing what: Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was called ricky and he was great! We visited aberdeen harbour and went on a little fishing boat extra but not much, then stanley market for an hours shopping. We then went up victoria peak on the bus and the ride back down was on the tram. ...The only drawback - factory tour - waste of time but I did enjoy the trip!
I think this tour was well worth doing as we were a bit overwhelmed being in a fairly non english speaking country so it was great to get us on track. As many have said the Jewellery shop was a pretty obvious bid to make sales but its only a short stop so not too bad. Everything else was a perfect taste of Hong Kong.
Our guide Biddy was fantastic and provided heaps of information. You see alot of the island of Hong Kong and the tour gives you a taste of places you may want to revisit in your own time ie Stanley Markets and the Peak. Views were spectacular
We loved the sampan ride at Aberdeen Harbour & Stanley Market, and the views from Victoria Peak are amazing.

Great tour, but not so good for someone with poor mobility. Pity it was foggy for Victoria Peak. The tour itself was great!
This tour is a must! You cover so much territory in a short period of time, and the views from the peak were great! If you don't take any other tours in Hong Kong. Take this one!
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the trip was very good! The view from Victoria Peak was a bit hazy the day we were there but that is Hong Kong at this time of year. I could have done without the trip to the jewelery factory especially as no one was working as it was the weekend. Also we were disappointed the trip did not pick up at our hotel even although it was on the list. Overall though, the trip was reasonable value.
