Sensational!!!! Best value for money tour. However, it does not allow you to fully explore the sights the bus stops at. We were on the 48hr deluxe/premium tour. We did the Red,Green and Blue tours, but instead we should have done the Red on one day and the Green the next omitting the Blue which is just a tour aroung TST and environs......Mong Kok, Ladies Market, Temple street etc,
Also you need to sharpen your pencil re the rates as this tour was available on other sites at a better rate!!!! Notwithstanding we were so impressed we recommended it to our friends who arrived the next day and which they took up and enjoyed just as much.
First of all I would recommend this tour and high marks for the staff. The Hop-on Hop-off tour employees were great. They were very welcoming and helpful and most of them spoke English. I had booked a two day tour and it took two full days to see everything that was listed on the tour. The extra items like the Victoria peak tram and the 30 minute boat ride were great. The Sampan ride was also interesting. Your ticket also includes four trips across the harbour from Kowloon to Hong Kong Island on the Star Ferry. You get a great view of the harbour. Its only about 10 minutes to cross the harbour but very nice. There is more to see on the Hong Kong Island side. I would suggest seeing this side first. The first stop on the Hong Kong Island side is Victoria Peak Tram. Get off first thing in the morning and this way you will miss the crowds. There is a fantastic view of the city from the Peak and there are also a lot of shops. You will need at least one hour or more to see everything at the top of the mountain. You have priority boarding going up, but not coming down. After leaving the peak take the bus that goes to Stanley and Aberdeen. After you go through a 2 mile tunnel you come out to the ocean and you look down on sandy beaches and secluded beaches. Its hard to believe you just came from a crowded city. Get off at the end of the Bay Area and take the Sampan tour. Its short but it gives you and idea what its like to live on a Sampan. Towards the end of the day go back across the bay to the Kowloon side to take the boat trip in the harbour. Well worth it. There are lots of spots to get off and sample the restaurant areas etc. There is also a ticket for the Marine Museum. I did everything listed for the tour and I had a great time.
Fantastic. A great way to see a new place. You got more than just the bus. We did the 48hour tour which gave us enough time. 24 hours wouldn't be enough time to give Hong Kong justice.
Best way to see around Hong Kong. They were always helpful and polite.
We were able to visit the main parts of Hong Kong whilst we were there. We found the staff very helpful and obliging. There was no hard sell for other options available.
This is a great tour with lots of variety. The only problem is having enough time to get round all 3 routes in 48 hours. We only managed 2 routes because there's so much to see!
Very interesting and pleasant way to discover HK; very well organized; itineraries are diversified and allow to see most things in a very short period of time; huge plus is the priority access to the Peak Tram that goes with the tour
Great price for the amount of sights, stops, and admission fees included. Very well run with several english speakers to assisst.
The only way to see Hong Kong. The three routes make the cost worth while. We took a 48 hour ticket and got to see everything.
A very good way to see the city--not crowded and always close (within 10 mins) to the time listed in the brochure. Good information given and the driver was gave some extra information that added a personal touch. An excellent way to cover the city the first time and then go back to the interesting areas and spend more free time within the two day ticket.
The whole experience with the tours was very enjoyable. I did not have enough time to partake in all trips offered.
