What You Can Expect

Big Bus Hong Kong Hop-On Hop-Off Tour

Capture incredible views from an open-top bus

Hop aboard the open-top, double-decker bus at any of the 22 stops around Hong Kong to begin your hop-on hop-off sightseeing tour. On board, enjoy informative audio commentary about the history of Hong Kong and gain insight into Cantonese culture and tradition.

Based on the attractions you want to see, choose from three different routes: Hong Kong Island (Red Route), Kowloon (Blue Route) and Stanley (Green Route). Your ticket is valid for all three routes.

With your provided map in hand, hop off the bus to explore by foot. Visit everything from traditional temples to historic colonial sites to contemporary shopping centers. Highlights include Lan Kwai Fong, Soho, Lascar Row, the Bird Market, Temple Street Market, the Hong Kong Space Museum, the Hong Kong Museum of History and the world-renowned Hong Kong Cultural Centre.

With your included one-way ferry ticket, enjoy one of Hong Kong’s most classic experiences: riding the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour. Ride from Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon to the Central Star Ferry Terminal on Hong Kong Island. This passenger ferry service has been linking Kowloon and Hong Kong Island since 1888. Carrying more than 70,000 passengers a day, the Star Ferry is one of the most popular things to do in Hong Kong!

While in Aberdeen, enjoy a sampan ride around the harbor. Aboard a skiff propelled by two oars, have your camera ready as you weave past a floating village and around clusters of local fishing boats. A sampan ride is one of Hong Kong’s best cultural experiences.

Your ticket also includes either a Peak Tram Sky Pass or admission to the Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck — your choice. Both offer superb views of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong’s downtown skyscrapers. The Peak Tram is a funicular railway that runs from the Central district of Hong Kong Island to Victoria Peak; at the summit, you can dine, shop and enjoy scenic walks. Or, visit the Sky100 Hong Kong Observation Deck, a 360-degree indoor observation deck on the 100th floor of the International Commerce Centre, Hong Kong's tallest building.

See the Itinerary below for a full list of stops on each route.

Optional Upgrade: Big Bus Night Tour of Kowloon
A visit to Hong Kong would not be complete without experiencing the famous ‘Symphony of Lights’ illuminations and the neon spectacle of Nathan Road. This 1-hour panoramic night tour of Kowloon offers the best view of both. Ride through the bustling heart of Hong Kong and see Kowloon at its vibrant best: by night! If you’d like, you can finish your tour early and disembark at one of Kowloon’s bustling night markets to shop or sample local foods.

I truly enjoyed the whole 48 hours! As a solo traveler, I really wasn't sure what to see and do in HK, but hte Big Bus Tour helped me explore many regions of HK and really taste what HK has to offer. I did all three tours Green, Red, Blue, as well as the one-hour ferry cruise, and the tour of the Maritime Museum. It was fabulous. Would do it again in a heartbeat!

This was well worth it and an excellent way to see the city. It has especially helped as it rained while we were there. It's a big city and seeing all the sites so easily was welcomed by my group.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

We were in Hong Kong for 48 hours and we took full advantage of all that the ticket offered. The ferry rides and harbor cruise were bonuses. Well worth the money. Oh yeah, the tram to the viewing platform overlooking Hong Kong was included and truly amazing...not to be missed.

An outstanding value packed activity over the two days. The ability to get a feel for HK and being able to hop on hop off on the three routes was excellent. The extras - ferry rides, peak tram ride, san pan ride were great inclusions and the night tour.
The staff were obvious and very helpful all around the different routes and gave insightful hints as well
Great value
