What You Can Expect

Small-Group Historical Walking Tour of Hong Kong

Small-Group Historical Walking Tour of Hong Kong

The story of Hong Kong’s history is one best told in its streets. That’s because what was once a British outpost and later became part of the People’s Republic of China has a past that’s as rich and unique as its culture and people. Your small-group walking tour showcases all of the highlights. 

You’ll pay a visit to Possession Point, where the British captured Hong Kong in 1841 before continuing along the shore to the Sheung Wan district. Your expert guide will recount the famous history of this area, as well as the Sun-Yat Sen trail as you learn about the founding father of China. 

After digging into the past you’ll make your way to the present with a stop at the Central Business District. Ripe with towering skyscrapers and modern buildings this is the administrative hub of Hong Kong. As you wander the streets you’ll see Hong Kong’s first prison, the Victorian Prison Compound, as well as the Central police station and other key buildings.

Learn about the emerging artists who call Hong Kong home with a visit to the Fring Club—known for displaying contemporary and innovative work from young people. You’ll also see some of the neighborhood’s most popular landmarks like the Legislative Council building, the oldest Anglican church in Asia and the Court of Final Appeal Building.

See the European influence at Flagstaff House, where British architecture reigns supreme and get a taste of local politics at the Government’s Headquarters Complex overlooking Victoria Harbour.

Finally you and your fellow travelers will follow your guide to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center on the Wan Chai waterfront, where your tour ends. Learn about the famed handover ceremony that took place on this sight in 1997 and see the well-known Blooming Bauhinia Sculpture before retuning to the center of the city.

This was a great tour. Our guide was very informative and we saw a lot in the short time we had. He gave us a lot of history about Hong Kong which we never knew. It was a little wet the day we did this tour but that was not a problem, we were shown everything we were supposed to see. Would recommend this tour.

FABULOUR TOUR. I cannot say how much I love this tour. Our guide, Danny, was wonderful his manner of story telling is elegant and funny. As we walked and he pointed out historical places, he wound a whole story about Hong Kong's journey from backwater Chinese port, to a British Colony after the Opium Wars, to its struggles during WW11, and finally to the powerhouse luxury destination it is today. Without his perspective our time in Hong Kong would have been much less vibrant. THANK YOU, DANNY!!!!

Danny met us at the entrance to a centrally located subway station and we were off on a wonderful walking tour of Hong Kong. Great intro to the city and with just 9 of us on the tour--very easy to follow and ask questions. We toured for over 3 hours and saw much of central Hong Kong. We learned a lot of history and developed a better understanding of the people who make Hong Kong what it is. Beautiful City! We were given tips on ways to continue to explore on our own. Excellent experience.

Our tour guide was Danny, who spoke excellent English and was a wealth of information. My wife and I like to get an understanding of the history of the places we visit, and Danny did a great job with that. We visited many places that we would never have found ourselves - and were able to pepper Danny with questions on historical and contemporary issues. He had thoughtful and insightful responses to all of them. If you're interested in a deeper understanding of Hong Kong during your visit there, this tour is for you.

This historical walking tour with Danny Fung was the highlight of my trip to Hong Kong Island. We saw all the major sights on the island walking from Sheung Wan to the Central. District and then on to Admiralty. Danny's knowledge of Hong Kong and its history is incredibly detailed. He is well spoken. The price of the tour is a fraction of what another tour was requesting. I highly recommend this tour.
