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.

When you go for trip to Hong Kong don't miss this package tour and remember this name BIG BUS. The most recommended tour package that let you explore entire Hong Kong from Kowloon and Central to back of Island, the Stanley Tour. See the amazing Hong Kong from Sky Terrace in Victoria Peak and at Sky100. Experience the origin of Hong Kong as a floating village on a traditional sampan ride. We love Hong Kong, We love Big Bus!

As usual this is the best way to see Hong Kong, Apart from the heat and wind on the top deck we enjoyed it.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2015

Great tour if you have a limited time available, takes you round all the must see places and you can also add extras onto your tour. Audio commentary is also very good telling you lots of facts about what you are seeing and where you are going. The night tour to Kowloon is also worth the trip.

Great way to see the city!

The narrative was clear and helpful in deciding what areas we wanted to.see

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We were only in Hong Kong for a couple of days so this really suited us as we got to get out and see lots of areas very easily. If it hadn't been for this tour then we wouldn't have gone out to places like Aberdeen on the green route. We wish we would have had more time to get off and explore the areas on this route. My favourite thing was the Sampan ride. Great to do something that felt slightly cultural in a very modern city.

Also very handy that the Star Ferry journey was included in our ticket and the Victoria Peak ticket. We were really happy with this as having everything included made our short amount of time in Hong Kong much easier to get around and see the things we wanted to.

I would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Hong Kong but I do have one piece of advice - unlike London and other open top bus tours I have been on, the bus stops are not clearly labelled. The map that is provided with the tour gives you good notes on where to find the bus stops but it took us a long time to find the stop nearest to our hotel in Kowloon because we were expecting to see the Big Bus logo on the bus stop. It wasn't an issue once we had a map but I just thought this may help others doing this tour in the future.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

This ticket is such good value for money! You can do three separate tours and see most of Hong Kong over a 48-hour period. The ticket includes the ferry, a river cruise and the tram to the Peak, as well as entrance to the Maritime Museum. There are people at all the major places to guide you to attractions or route changes, and they couldn't be more pleasant and helpful. Highly recommend the 48-hour Big Bus Tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

Our visit to Hong Kong was especially good because of your recommendation to use the hop on hop off bus service. We would recommend your company to anyone who wishes to enjoy their visit to any of your places of interest.
