This was a wonderfully fun day and extremely well organised. The setting for lunch was spectacular and the food was very good with a great variety, including oysters (australian and irish) in their shell which were shucked individually in front of you. Drinks kept on flowing and the service was exceptional throughout the day. Betting was fun and help was given at the wave of a hand! Highly recommend.

Great night out at Happy Valley. Not into horse racing at all, but had fun having a bet and enjoyed a very good buffet dinner. Nice mix of people and had a great table in the Members right at the window and just a step out to the grandstand viewing area. Quite a long walk to paddock and winning post, which you can do with the guide to watch one race, midway through the evening. My sister has knee problems so didn't do the walk. We won some money and for a simple win and place bet no need to fill in a form, but there are people to assist with more complex betting.

this tour of happy valley was wonderful. The buffet was plentiful, food was fresh, lots of it and wine all night. Facilities were also great and staff very helpful in showing you how to place a bet. I would recommend this tour to everybody including those who don't even like horse racing as the atmosphere is very exciting and is excellent value for money.

A fabulous day out, great food, wine and atmosphere. Real value for money, we'll be back next time. Our tour guide Shu could not have been more helpful and a big thanks also to the wait and betting staff.

We had a brilliant night, excellent views from the room, food was plentiful and drinks non stop. Cant believe its in the centre of a city, a must for any visitor during the racing season.

Would really recommend this evening! Had a wonderful time! Excellent to have food and all drinks in the package as Hong Kong is an expensive city!

This was a fantastic night - smooth pick up from appointed meeting place and excellent guide to betting procedures. On arrival a hostess met us and escorted to the Members Restaurant and Stand- beautiful meal, unlimited drinks, $30 betting voucher and your own balcony so you could watch the races inside on the monitor or outside. Escorted down to the Winners circle to see the parade of horses and able to watch one race from inside the track. Highly recommend this as a memorable evening especially given that I'm not a racing/ betting follower!!

This was a first class well organized event. The guide looked after everyone extremely well. The viewing area and dinner table were situated in a very good spot, the food was really very good and the free bar (drink type restricted) was also generous. I'd highly recommend this tour.

Words can not explain what great value this evening is. Having done this before. I booked for myself and Dad. I wasn't unhappy. The food if anything has got better . And it was just a fun night. The races were a added bonus!!
