Important InfoInfo
Start your half-day tour of Hong Kong Island with hotel pickup, and head to the famous fishing village of Aberdeen. Here you'll see Hong Kong's junk-dwelling floating community, still very much a part of Hong Kong life. You have the option to board a sampan (at an additional cost), for a close-up view of waterborne life.
Next up is a short visit to a well-known jewelry factory, where craftsmen fashion meticulous works of art from gold and gems. Then pass picturesque Repulse Bay on the way to your next destination, the famous Stanley Market, where you can pick up bargains at just a fraction of the price in town.
Your tour of Hong Kong Island includes a tram ride for panoramic views of Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the surrounding islands. With an eight-minute funicular railway ride, take in the sweeping vista of Hong Kong’s skyscrapers before you’re taken back to your hotel.

Fabulous tour. Our guide was so full of cultural information and Hong Kong trivia!!! Every stop and adventure was terrific except for jewelry factory. No one bought anything and it was obviously a payoff so that 45 minute time frame was bad and so not acceptable. I hate having to sit through a presentation to sell me something when Im paying for a tour. No one was comfortable in the jewelry factory and the salespeople trying so hard to make us buy left a very unsavory taste in my mouth.

Great way to get a overview of the city before starting to explore all of the sights to see in the Hong Kong area. Highly recommend this trip as it gets you to by pass some of the long lines but still see things.

This is a great half day tour of Hong Kong Island. Takes in the main sights, the optional junk ride in Aberdeen Harbour is a must. The jewellery stop was interesting but I would have preferred longer in Stanley. Our tour guide was very good and made the trip interesting. The Peak was great even though it was a bit dull, you could see over into kowloon. All in all a worthwhile trip and good value.

Good communication with tour guide got caught in traffic, but was not very late. Good, informative tour. Was not terribly impressed that they took us to a jewelry factory and tried to sell us stuff, but my wife liked that too. Really like the trip to Victoria Peak, the guide knew how to beat the crowds and it went well.

Highly recommend this tour, although we had overcast cloudy skies and some rain, we were still able to see visit the Aberdeen floating community and do the sampan ride which was so much fun. The views from Repulse bay to Victoria Peak are breathtaking. The tour guide was a delight as well.

A well worthwhile orientation to Hong Kong island which incorporates all the major sites of interest. The trip was well organised and whilst I was not that interested in the visit to the jewellery factory others in the group found it interesting and it was relatively little time out of the day. The trip was well organised with a good guide Steve who was entertaining, informative and funny in his delivery. It was also well structured, and although we had to pay extra for the Chinese junk ride 70HKdollars, it was well worth it as it showed the diversity between fishing vessels, junks, houseboats and the mega yachts located in Aberdeen bay. It was also interesting to see the other side of the island with Repulse Bay and Stanley with it market, before concluding the trip with the visit to Victoria Point for the fantastic view over Hong Kong and Kowloon and the Peak Tram ride back into the city. A varied, interesting and good ntriduction to Hong Kong.

There is a lot to see in this half-day tour. Bring snacks and drinks with you as lunch is not served. Our tour guide gave us time to explore and walk around each area. There was a typhoon the day before our tour so that visibility at Victoria's peak was 0. The Peak was still enjoyable and the shops and restaurants were indoors and great for walking around. The tram ride down the Peak was great too. This is whole tour was wonderful and I would highly recommend.

Great tour and experience. The sampan boat tour, even at extra cost, a true eye opener of the way some people lived on these waters.
