It is an excellent way to see Hong Kong when on a short stay.Great value for money and we got to see a lot.

This tour is a great way to see Hong Kong. It is a very big place and getting around on the bus was a great way to see everything. The red line was closed due to the protests but we still saw everything we wanted on the blue and green lines. The cable car is a must to do and we also did sky 100 plus the Stanley markets. The bus ran on time and it was not crowded (probably due to the downturn of people visiting Hong Kong). We felt very safe though every where we went. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to see a bit of everything in Hong Kong.

In light of the difficult situation in Hong Kong with sudden street closures and cancellations of planned tours the Big Bus team was extremely helpful and creative to show me the attractions I was interested in seeing. Their service and attention to detail was exemplary.

The first of two scheduled days was great. Bus got to all major attractions. Bus was clean and audio accurately addressed what we were seeing. Variety of scheduled activities was excellent. Due to heightened demonstrations, the second day of our activities was cancelled. We received a complete refund.

Hong Kong was in turmoil with all of the protests going on and your people were very professional and helpful! We were able to see everything and feel safe with the help of your staff! Good going Big Bus!

The Big Bus was the perfect way to familiarize ourselves with the city. It picked us up about 2-3 blocks from our hotel and, if you took all 3 tours, you would have a great overview of Hong Kong. The Bus stops at plenty of tourist attractions and even with all the traffic, seemed to be mostly running on schedule,

There are three different routes, identified by colour. All three are great. Be sure to start early on the green route, because it goes way out of the city... when you spend too much time wandering,make sure that you're on time to catch the last return bus, or else you got to find your own transport back! Before you buy all three, make sure you allocate time at least one day for each route to see everything. You don't want to rush from one stop to another. After you get down at a place of interest, you got to wait to hop on the next bus. Make note of the time of last stop and time it way before that time if you want to get back to original stop. Whatever you do in Hongkong, don't miss this.

I Loved This Hop On Hop Off Tour!! Highly Recommend It!! It includes 3 routes, 1 on Kowloon and 2 on Hong Kong Island. It also includes roundtrip boat rides between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island across Victoria Harbour. The first day, I did both routes on Hong Kong Island, which includes the Peak Tram, Stanley Market, Sampan Boat Ride. Great view on the Peak Tram, which I did first thing in the morning, lines were longer in the afternoon, but I was able to skip the line with this ticket. Sampan Boat Ride was an Experience. Stanley Market was Awesome Shopping Deals, but I almost missed Stanley Market. I ended up asking people and good thing I did. The bus drops you off at the top of Stanley Plaza, there are no signs directing you to Stanley Market. You'll have to take the escalators to the ground level, go left to the end of the building, follow the sidewalk past the restaurants, at the end of the restaurants, cross the street going toward the right, walk until you get to an alley on the left then walk into the alley. Stanley market stalls are located on the right. Great experience and shopping. Next day did Kowloon route, stayed on the bus roundtrip, then got off at Langham Place. Great places to eat, but ended up walking to Ladies Market and Temple Market, great food and shopping

Three great routes. Start early with the green line then the red. Finish with the Blue on Kowloon and highly recommend the view from SKY100
• Submitted 08 Apr 2018
This was a great to see the key places in the city. It was especially helpful that there was staff at the key stops providing guidance re how to get to the attraction. I'd highly recommend this get to see it all. I especially enjoyed the sampan boat....the city is quite different when you're in a small boat in the harbor..
• Submitted 07 Apr 2018
This is a cost effective way to see a LOT of Hong Kong. This was our second trip to Hong Kong the first time we did the 2 day HOHO with the visit to Aberdeen and Stanley Market. This time we didn't get off and did the full loop including the trip on the Star Ferry. Highly recommend!
• Submitted 06 Apr 2018
Great way to see the city. I recommend booking early in your trip to get a real feel of the city. Very efficient service.
• Submitted 01 Apr 2018
Excellent. The Green routes and the Blue route combined with the Star ferry/the sampan ride/the Sky 100 vouchers and seperately purchased Peak tram rides reduced cost for those over 65, made for an excellent opportunity to see most of Hong Kong city/Kowloon
• Submitted 30 Mar 2018
This is a typical big bus tour. Very clean and runs on time. We did two day option which included tram pass to the peak and two returns on the star ferry. We stayed in Kowloon so really used the bus to explore Hong Kong Island. We got our monies worth just with the trip to Stanley

This is a great way to explore Hong Kong on a tight schedule. A little research on the city sights will help enchance the trip. And using the metro and walking, one can create some interesting self guide tours. Note. Until 'learning' the system it seemed the best points to start were either the Piers on the Hong Kong Side or at the Pennisula Hotel.
• Submitted 08 Mar 2018
We truly enjoyed our Big Bus Hop-on/Hop-off experience in Hong Kong and were actually able to extend our 48-hr Deluxe ticket over the course of 3 days because of the time of day we activated it late morning. We enjoyed all three routes and found each route very informative. We especially enjoyed the route to the south side of the island to the Stanley Market, and where we enjoyed a relaxing lunch. We highly recommend this tour as a convenient way to get acquainted with Hong Kong and to learn many things about the city.
• Submitted 07 Mar 2018
Excellent value for money as when we got there we were given many vouchers with the ticket for entry to other experiences. I cannot say enough good things about it.
• Submitted 24 Feb 2018
Well worth the money. You are able to cover so many sights and it makes for a great way of getting around. The only negative is the pick up place at the Sky Tower. As we did not get dropped there, but met up with the Hop on Hop off bus at the stop, we had a lot of difficulties finding where to actually meet the bus. There needs to be someone there to direct people or better signage.

This was a very long day but an excellent tour we had a great guide in Macau - Cisco - had a great day
• Submitted 28 Jan 2018
Excellent value ticket - great way to see both Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. Highly recommend this activity.
• Submitted 13 Jan 2018
This was probably the best way to see Hong Kong. It took you around the whole island. I got to see parts I hadn't before, like Stanley and Causeway Bay. I would def do this again!
