We build the itinerary completely around your interests.
Hong Kong Private Tour
How much walking is there on a Hong Kong Walking Tour?
For a 4-hour walking tour, we will walk approximately 4 kilometers (2.5 miles), with rest stops and toilet breaks along the way. Given that this is a private tour, the walking tour will be conducted at a pace comfortable for you. There will also be opportunities for you to take public transport (e.g. buses, MTR, trams). That said, if you have any serious health or mobility issues, please let us know beforehand so that we can plan ahead accordingly.
Can I book a private car for my Hong Kong walking tour?
No. Our tours are interesting because we explore the city just as how most locals get around – by foot or by Hong Kong’s efficient public transport system!
Do you offer tours in other languages?
No, we conduct Hong Kong walking tours only in English. We do not offer tours in Spanish, French, German or Japanese.

Cancellations Due To Bad Weather
Participants must be aware that our Hong Kong tours, by definition, are weather-dependent outdoor events. Given the vagaries of weather conditions in Hong Kong, localized weather circumstances may change quickly, regardless of the weather forecast for that day. We refer to Hong Kong Observatory for up-to-date weather warnings.
In the case of unsuitable weather conditions, participants will be contacted prior to the tour, in general, no later than 08:30 on the morning of the scheduled Hong Kong tour. Notification will be by email, SMS, and – where possible – by personal follow-up telephone call. The final decision on whether to go ahead with the scheduled tour remains at our sole discretion. In the event of any cancellation by us, the fees will be refunded in full.
Hong Kong tours will be automatically canceled in the event of Typhoon Signal No. 8, Typhoon Signal No. 10, a Red Rainstorm, or a Black Rainstorm. The fees will be refunded in full.
Personal Fitness and Personal Accident Insurance
Participants are responsible for ensuring they are in suitable physical condition for all Hong Kong tours. If you have any doubts about your level of personal fitness, you must consult your doctor. All Hong Kong tours require walking. Any medical condition or medication being taken that may affect your health or participation must be notified to us in writing prior to the event and must be accompanied by a doctor’s certificate to verify your fitness to participate in our Hong Kong tours.
All events are undertaken at the participant’s own risk. We accept no liability or obligation in the event of illness, injury, death, or loss or damage to personal property. Personal accident insurance is strongly advised.
For the benefit of everyone, we reserve the right to remove any participant whose conduct is deemed to pose a risk or nuisance to others. We will not refund or cover any cost or expenses incurred due to unacceptable behavior.
Food and Beverage
All food and beverage consumed during a Hong Kong tour is the responsibility of the participant. We accept no responsibility or liability in this instance.

I don’t have a PayPal account. Can I pay for my Hong Kong walking tour by credit cards instead?
For payment of your Hong Kong walking tour, you do not need to have a PayPal account. To clarify, we rely on PayPal to provide our guests with a secure platform for all financial transactions. With this in mind, when we send you an invoice through PayPal, you can definitely use your credit card to complete the payment (even if you are not a PayPal account holder).
Help! I sent an email 24 hours ago but I did not receive any reply.
We don’t like to keep you waiting. However, our email may be rejected automatically due to your mailbox being full or a wrong email address is provided. More than often, our email lands up as Spam (not the tinned meat kind). If you are using Gmail’s Tabbed Interface, our email may be filtered to your Social, Promotions, or Updates tabs. So please keep a lookout for our email as we will definitely reply within 24 hours. We promise!
Do I need a special travelling card to use the Hong Kong’s public transport system?
You can pay for transport in Hong Kong using cash. Nonetheless, our recommendation is to get an Octopus card, which you can use for taking the MTR, buses, trams, and Star Ferry. An Adult Octopus card costs HK$150, whereby HK$50 is a refundable deposit and HK$100 would be the initial card value that you can use for your transport. In like manner, a Child or a Senior card costs HK$70, with a similar HK$50 refundable deposit.
What should I wear for my Hong Kong walking tour?
WIthout a doubt, you will need a pair of comfortable walking shoes. This is because Hong Kong has a fair bit of slopes and steep roads. As a result, we advise against heels or newly bought leather shoes.
Other than that, perhaps you may want to check the weather forecast a day before your Hong Kong walking tour, so that you can be dressed appropriately.
Do I have to tip the tour guide at the end of my Hong Kong walking tour?
No, you don’t have to. For all of our Hong Kong walking tours, tipping is always optional as we view it as our responsibility to provide exceptional tour service. For this reason, there is absolutely no obligation to tip.
