Shenzhen Sightseeing and Shopping Tour from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
1 star rating: I do not recommend this

My Review

The trip stated well with a good and engaging guide and our initial visit to the fairy gardens was this trips saving feature, complete with picturesque views, wonderful gardens and banzai on display. However once we arrived at the the terracotta warrior it went downhill from there. There are three of the Terracotta warriors behind a glass case in a display room. Once you have seen them (no photos allowed), you are then sales pitched to buy jewellery and other items (only available in that room before you move on). Then you move to a much larger show room that looks remarkably like yet another jewelry factory outlet and are told that the diamonds, crystal, jade, and other priceless items are available at good prices (a load of rubbish). After kindly declining this once in a lifetime opportunity we then went to the silk factory and guess what.....another initial token talk about how silk products are made and then into the sell mode for silk sheets, doonas and clothing at, you guessed it, low low prices. Now a ray of sunshine came through when we went to a local 5 star hotel for lunch which was great and the food very well presented. Then it was off to the shopping complex. This place scared the hell out of my 26 yr old son with the high and in your face selling from floors and floors of market shops. Each one repeating their cry of "what are you looking for". Sadly the people in Shenzhen were inhospitable and rude, I would not recommend this tour although the guides were pretty good.

My Review

The tour is value for money however the tour guide never stopped and at times this was annoying. The jewellery factor is very hard sell and they do not allow you to choose your currency for payment and as such if you buy a lot you pay big conversion. Overall well worth it if your short on time

My Review

The pick up from the hotel, and subsequent commentary from the tour guide was brilliant and informative. I enjoyed the trip to Hong Kong Jewelers as they had excellent products. The trip from there to the park was OK and I would have appreciated an earlier option to leave the park as we were over it by 3pm
