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.
Very informative and interesting. Our guide pointed out things we would never have seen on our own. Prepare to do quite a bit of walking.
Danny was a very good guide. We saw quite a bit and got much more out of our visit to downtown Hong Kong than we could have done on our own. I would definitely recommend it.
Our walking tour with Danny Fung was excellent. Danny made our morning so interesting with his knowledge and understanding of Hong Kong history. I am 64 and my nephew is 19 and we both learned lots of fascinating facts and gained new insights into life in Hong Kong. We took other tours during our visit to China but Danny was, by far, our best tour guide. Our only regret is that we didn't have time to take more of Danny's various tours.
Very informative tour. The guide was very willing to answer questions. We saw and learned a lot. The only thing that would have improved the tour was if the guide had given us a map at the end showing where we had been during the tour. However, we were able to find many places later on a map because the guide was so clear in describing where we were when we were there. We highly recommend this tour.
Interesting tour ,well thought our.Danny was a great guide.
The tour takes you to many interesting places and you are able to appreciate the history ( of course the British period is the most obvious ).
We would strongly recommend this tour
This was a fantastic tour - our tour guide Danny was very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about Hong Kong - and I had lived there for a few years! Hong Kong now feels different for me that I know more of the history. It was a 3 hour walk, so be sure to take water, snacks and good comfortable walking shoes. The day we went it was very hot as well so wear cool clothes and a hat if in the summer.
The tour guide was very knowledgeable and we saw the highlights p
A lot of interesting information is given on this tour and a lot is packed in to the 3 hours! You get to see a lot of the city on Hong Kong Island. I had a very vague understanding of Hong Kong's history before I took this tour and afterwards the city becomes even more interesting because of what you learn which enriched my holiday experience. Highly recommended!
Danny was an excellent guide with lots of knowledge of the history of Hong Kong. Tour is highly recommended although not for elderly persons
We really enjoyed this tour. We learned a lot. The guide was great. He did a great job of explaining the history. We would recommend this tour.
Excellent, my guide was very knowledgable and friendly. He gave a great introduction to Hongkong history!
Absolutely loved this tour. From the easy meeting point to the gradual climbs and therefore easy walking Danny's thorough knowledge and clear English made this tour a delight. A must for everyone.
An interesting and enjoyable time that was invaluable for the rest of my week. As I went about Hong Kong I was able to recognise where I was and share interesting information with my business colleagues and friends. The tour was well-paced and flexible so that we covered a lot of ground and saw a lot of different things but, Jennifer as excellent at adapting to the changing pedestrian traffic and the weather. It threatened rain all day but, we were never caught out when it fell.
Jennifer was personable, friendly and very well informed. I learned about history, culture and colloquial life in Hong Kong. For example, I learned about the influence of feng shui on the placement, orientation and design of buildings by the biggest banks. Even more entertaining was to hear how new buildings by the mainland Chinese used feng shui to challenge Hong Kong skyline landmarks and then how those buildings were modified to respond. This is just one example of the sort of local knowledge, combining politics, culture, superstition, philosophy and history, which really helps one gain an insight into life in Hong Kong.
If you prefer to see life from the street than through the window of a bus then this is the tour for you. If you are lucky enough to get Jennifer as your guide then that will be a wonderful bonus.
Really interesting to learn about the history of Hong Kong. Hong Kong island is both historically fascinating and beautiful with all the wonderful parks and gorgeous buildings. Great day with Danny--a very interesting and well informed guide who treated us to a fabulous day seeing the city..
Dan was our tour guide. Dan was informative and a clear communicator. He took us on a 3 hour walk starting from Sheung Wan station and ending near Hong Kong station. Stops included Western Market building, Hollywood Park, Man Mo Temple, Sun-Yat Sen historical trail, walked past some galleries in Hollywood Road, Victoria Court House, Anglican precinct, saw the outside of several "private" clubs, HSBC building and Hong Kong Park plus a few other areas.
Our group was really small - one lady and myself. Our guide, Danny Fung, did a great job of showing us the historical sites, as well as explaining the background of them. I would certainly recommend Danny and his tour, especially for first time visitors to Hong Kong.
Having visited Hong Kong before, we decided to do something different and booked 3 walking tours. Our tour guide on each day was Danny. He was knowledgable and very personable. We were the only people on the tour, so it was even more personal. Danny set a good pace, which was fine with us. Danny was interesting to talk to and we covered a whole range of subjects from history to culture. He was happy to branch off the main track and focus on our interests. Definitely recommend this.
Excellent tour covering the colonial history of Hong Kong with a look at a great number of historical buildings and sites pretty much in chronological order. Danny was extremely informative and a few interesting stories as well giving us all the historical facts. It was also an excellent way to getting our bearings in Central. Would definitely recommend it as an essential part of any visit to Hong Kong.
This was a great tour for several reasons; our tour guide, Danny, was personable, very knowledgeable about the history of Hong Kong and we had him all to ourselves! Being the only two who signed up for this walking tour on Monday, we had all our questions answered and could take a little more time in some places than if we had been a large group. We thoroughly enjoyed hearing Danny's perspective on the history and culture of his hometown.

Danny was "the man" a few on the tour for this and Danny spent his time with everyone. He totally knew his facts and info and was extremely good at asking any questions, not too physical a tour, a very good mix of old and new stuff. Would recommend this to anyone well worth it. 5*
