Value for money, saw a lot in a day. Pick up time was accurate, no long wait wondering if they are coming. Visiting Victoria Peak was a breeze as the tour guide was well practiced, views are great. We then went to Stanley Market, this market wasn't much different from Temple Market or Ladies Market. Remember to haggle. Being from Aberdeen, Scotland the harbour was of interest to us but others apeared to enjoy the boat ride as well. In this tour we visited a jewellery factory. Unlike others, the staff were pleasant and informative WITHOUT the hard sell. The jewellery was beautiful and inexpensive. Suggest if you want to buy jewellery, buy it here.
Dinner cruise was great, the food was excellent with a good variety and plenty of it. The alcohol is not part of the tour and is expensive. Great views of light show. Highly recommend this tour as you see so much in a day. Great for those with limited time.
Pick up and drop-off at the Hotel was simple. A Great way to skip the lines on tram to Victoria's Peak. Others buying tickets manually had to wait up to two hours for a ride. Our tour went immediately to the front of the line. The day was Sunny and just a light haze made for some great visibility. Though we seemed to rush a bit all day, time at each stop was ample, and the rushing was needed to get everything in and get to the evening cruise on-time. Packed between the Peak Tour and the Evening Cruise, we took a Sanpan ride in Aberdeen an old fishing village that highlighted the poor conditions of the local folks, shopped the Stanley Market, watched a beautiful sunset over the beach at Stanley Promenade, and visited the old but recently restored Clock Tower in Hong Kong. The evening cruise was on an old converted automobile Ferry Boat. The view of the Laser Show on the top deck was nice and the Buffet Dinner had something for everyone. The only negative was that the tour also visits a Jewelry Factory/Store in Hong Kong for about 45 minutes which felt more like a way for the Tour Operator to get a commission rather than providing any insight into Hong Kong, but perhaps it served as a way to keep the cost of the tour lower. Overall though, a great tour.
It was a nice introduction to Hong Kong in the privacy of your own Mercedes with driver and guide. We went to Victoria Peak up the tram, Aberdeen Hrbor with Sampan ride and Stanley market. Our guide also stopped off at other points along the way which was nice. Its expensive but I would do it again.
Doing what: Private Tour: Hong Kong Island

What a wonderful way to start our Hong Kong stay, a lovely cruise on Victoria Harbour with the city lights ablaze. A drive through Aberdeen with fantastic views of Hong Kong, Kowloon and a wonderful dinner at the Jumbo floating restaurant. Great food, good service and a terrific guide. WELL DONE!!

Not clear from the tour description that the sunset cruise is a standard trip up and down the Victoria harbour and the Jumbo trip is a bus trip from the Hong Kong Central pier - I had imagined us sailing round to Aberdeen. The Jumbo itself is just a couple of minutes ferry through a standard yacht marina - there is no real sensation of "floating" and the old image of a sampan filled exotic harbour no longer exists. The restaurant itself is spectacularly kitsch and worth seeing and the food was good for such a touristy place. Worth doing but probably better value done privately.
Although we were under the wrong impression that the cruise and the dinner where at the same location or even close together. They are not you cruise Hong Kong harbour in a rickety old boat. The dinner is in Aberdeen mariner a fair distance by coach. Where the staff were not very welcoming and the food was poor and served cold. Would not recommend this trip book something else. Not worth the money.
