Stop At: Victoria Peak (The Peak), No.1 Lugard Road, Hong Kong China

Start your shore excursion of Hong Kong with a ride across Victoria Harbour aboard the Star Ferry, in operation for more than a century. This iconic attraction, popular with locals and overseas visitors, takes you to Hong Kong Island’s Central district.

Upon arrival at Central, board a comfortable air-conditioned coach and pass picturesque Repulse Bay en route to Aberdeen Harbour, home of the Jumbo floating restaurant and fishing village. Ride a sampan around the colorful harbor and learn about this floating community where fishermen and their families still reside aboard junks.

En route to Stanley Market, stop for a short visit to a renowned jewelry factory for insight into the jewelry-making process. See professional craftsmen making beautiful works of art, constructed of gold and gorgeous gems. At Stanley Market, popular with its array of little shops, browse for fantastic deals on everything from Chinese costume jewelry and souvenirs to silk clothing and sportswear. During your free time here, you can stop to purchase a quick bite to eat for lunch (at additional cost).

Next, make your way to Victoria Peak to enjoy the sweeping vista of Hong Kong’s skyscrapers and Victoria Harbour, including Kowloon and the surrounding islands. Descend from the Peak on the famous Peak Tram.

Afterward, your guide will take you to the Mongkok District in Kowloon for a final stop at the Ladies Street Market. Mingle with the locals and try your hand at bargaining as you browse amid the bustling streets, before your guide delivers you back to the Hong Kong port.

Great excursion. We rode the tramway to the top of Victoria Peak, rode on a sampan around Hong Kong harbor, took a ferry across another harbor, went to Stanley market and finally the ladies market. Nice guide, very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend.

People would like more time at Stanley Market to shop and have lunch. You could cut down the time at the other shopping area that was more of a flee market.

Took the Hong Kong Island tour and enjoyed it immensely. We were initially concerned with the traffic as the tour immediately got caught up in a jam as we approached a toll booth. However, all went OK, and the Sampam ride was very enjoyable. Second stop was the jewelry manufacturer (which my wife took full advantage of). The parts I enjoyed the most was the ride around the island, the view from Victoria Peak, and the water views. Although I’m not normally a

Our Hong Kong experience went really well, we were met at the port with 6 others from our ship, and taken to different parts of Hong Kong. As always Viator met all our expectations, we were safely brought back to the port to finish our day, another great tour, thank you Viator

On August 31 we had a wonderful tour of Shanghai. Our tour guide was Lily. She is a delight! She is extremely knowledgable and thorough. Lily is extremely flexible and her commentary throughout the tour was extremely interesting. Her's was the best tour of the four we took during our trip. If you are going to take a tour in Shanghai, my wife and I urge you to seek her out. You won't be disappointed! William and Linda R. Independence, MO

This was a great tour. We were picked up at the port and went via a mini-van. Our guide spoke very good English and explained the sights of the city.

Great tour guide and perfect way to see the highlights of Hong Kong. Wished that there was one less shopping stop, otherwise, rest was fine.

I have been to Hong Kong many times and this tour touched on all the sights I would recommend people see. I was delight to ride the Star Ferry, see the city from Victoria Peak and see Jumbo the Chinese dinning boat at Aberdeen.

Hong Kong was a very delightful experience. Notably because we had not traveled to this part of the world before. Our excursion was on the Tramway ascending to the sky and reaching a wonderful area to see a larger than life Budha. To heighten the experience we did see two bulls searching for food in a crowd.

I took this tour a shore excursion instead of the one offered by my cruise line. I booked on ship and was quite satisfied. They picked up at the cruise terminal on time and he was able to get all off us out in a timely fashion. Loved the great photo ops while on the sampan and at Victoria Peak. Just did not like some of the shopping location ladies market too crowded and hard to find guide and gem store presentation first thing. Other then that I would highly recommend tour as these were some of the best pictures and moments in Hong Kong.

Great tour guide, very knowledgeable. I would suggest a small lunch be offered as your competitors do for this price.

Really enjoyed the tour. One drawback was we had a hard time finding the tour guide at the cruise terminal because instructions were not clear. Also, once we started and were stuck in heavy traffic, the tour guide told us he had to go back to the terminal to pick up anoyther couple which would have eliminated at least one hour's worth of the tour. We convinced him to have the other couple meet us at our first stop instead which saved us a lot of time.

It was a great value and a full day of touring. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and the bus driver quite skilled. The ladies market had lots of places to eat and the Stanley market had the best values. We saved a lot of time by taking the tram from the top of Victorias Peak. The only downside is the buss windows were streaked with dirt. It made it had to take a picture. I highly recommend this tour.
