Fun and Learn at every corner: We will stop by places where you can try Hong Kong local food (own cost) and plan for your journey in HK.

The First Free Walking Tour in HK: We have been around since 2016 and been through the 2019 protest and COVID-19. Introduction of Hong Kong is our best and carefully crafted 2.5 hours experience. 



Hong Kong History – Understand Hong Kong’s complex history from the many colonial buildings and architecture throughout the city, as well as other cultural imprints including our language, identity and economy.

Food and Nightlife – We offer the best food and the most vibrant nightlife in the world. Let’s have a quick walk through Lai Kwan Fong and Central’s main street, and we give you the best recommendations on food and beverage choices.

Hong Kong Local Culture – Hong Kong culture is a mixture of Western and Eastern cultures, you can see Chinese traditional temple (Man Mo Temple) and Gothic Revival style church (St. John Cathedral) built in the sample district.

A great tour! Very informative. I really enjoyed our guru's sense of humour and the amount of information he shared. We learned a lot about the history of HK and the relationship with China. He also provided a lot of recommendations on where to eat and NOT eat.
