Doing what: Hong Kong Island Half-Day Tour
This tour was amazing and in fact it was the talk of our trip when we arrived home. My husband, son, son's wife and three children loved every minute! The guide was informative, the places we saw were wonderful, and the san pan ride is an absolute must! The Peak and the steep train ride were great fun. We highly recommend this tour.
We had a great day; our tour guide was so informative. Victoria Peak is a must, spectacular views and an experience coming down on tram. Did not enjoy the jewel factory.
Very informative tour guide. Lucky to have clear day at the peak. Plenty of free time at each of the stops.
Amazing views from Victoria Peak. Worth noting that you have to pay extra to go on the sampan ride at Aberdeen. Otherwise there would not be alot to see. Stanley Market is much smaller than the likes of Ladies and Temple Street in Kowloon but Stanley is a lovely place and definitely worth the visit. Overall a great trip and a good way to fit in the famous tourist sites if you are only in Hong Kong for a short time.
Enjoyed this tour. Very informative and smiley tour guide. Shame it was cloudy at The Peak, and no visibility, but it was a fun journey anyway.
Excellent half day tour - much better value than the whole day tour which was only an hour long than the half day tour! We had a very good guide and visited many different locations. Our only problem was the weather and unfortunately our visit to the Peak was rather lost as it was completely enshrouded in mist!
For first day in Hong Kong ideal way to get a feel for the city. Interesting and made more so by smart guides who demonstrated flexibility in juggling. The route to ensure the Peak view was available.
Felt the jewellery factory not worthwhile would prefer to see tour concentrate on the sights.
Valuable cost saving when compared to purchasing separately. Look carefully for counter A8 in the arrivals hall, though. The Peak, sky100, and HopOn-HopOff Rickshaw bus are unmissable and the card is simply accepted at each. Also recommend the Macau Attractions Pass.
This tour was value for money the only thing I thought was over-rated was the Peak tram.

Doing what: Hong Kong Sunset Cruise plus Dinner at the Jumbo Floating Restaurant
The sunset cruise was OK, but we had hoped for more information from a tour guide. Instead, we got piped in announcements every 5 to 10 minutes. Dinner at the Jumbo Restaurant was great! Our tour guide who took us up to the Vicotria Peak night viewing point was outstanding! Best part of the package.
The highlight of this tour was the tram ride at the peak, great fun for the family. We also enjoyed getting away from Central and seeing beautiful Repulse Bay and doing some shopping at Stanley Market. Highly recommended.
The tour was very helpful to see some important sights of Hong Kong. It is specially recommended to those who are going to have only a few days there. The guide was good. Aberdeen and the so called "floating houses" are a tourist trap (but you must see it). Victoria Peak is a wonderful opportunity to see the bay from the top. Stanley Market has some good shopping opportunities.
As with our evening tour, the dministration 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.
This is a good way to get a quick impression of Hong Kong and to select potential return visits. Sampan trip at Aberdeen was a typical tourist event but still quite fun. Reasonable time at Stanley market but a bit pushed if you decide to include lunch here. Great views from the Peak and full marks to our guide who adjusted our programme to avoid the early poor visibility. A worhwhile half day.
It was a great way to see get around and see Hong Kong Island and Victoria Peak.

Doing what: Hong Kong Harbor Night Cruise and Dinner at Victoria Peak
Diner venue was changed to a restaurant in victoria Peak, but it was indicated before booking the tour. The night cruise offers a great view of Hong Kong lights.
