Hello travellers! I'm Sue, the wise guru of Hong Kong :) I'm a fun multilinguist legal eagle and I am considered, witty, smart, and kind. I love meeting people and sharing and learn about different cultures. I've travelled through thousands of places and 40 countries, covering Asia, Europe, the Americas, Down Under, etc. I love everything that has to do with my city and I consider myself 100% Hong Kongese :). Some people compare Hong Kong with Beijing, Shanghai, or Singapore and say those cities are better. NO, NO, NO, that is so not true. Hong Kong has everything, the most character and it is the best. Come join me on my tours, where you would learn so much more about Hong Kong, that no other tours could compare! I cannot wait to show you the Hong Kong that I love! Remember, I am clever, wise, witty and funny and I can guarantee you a great time when we meet and when I show you around with many a laugh!

Tour description

Hello travellers! I'm Sue, the wise guru of Hong Kong :) 

This tour would take you around Quarry Bay, Taikoo, Sai Wan Ho, where you would see how residential life and industrial/commercial life sits side by side.
I will explain the entire history of these areas through emblematic places, how it was founded, curiosities, and much more.
In addition, I will take you to places that are not so touristy, hidden, so that you can enjoy this city like a local!  
We would navigate through narrow streets where there would be lots of street food and also visit the very instagramable “Monster Building”, which is popular with tourists, and which building the structure inspired locations in films like Transformers: Age of Extinction and Ghost in the Shell and music videos like "Labyrinth" by Mondo Grosso and Hikari Mitsushima and "Cave Me In" by Gallant and Eric Nam.

    I will be at "Exit A" of G/F of "Quarry Bay MTR Station", wearing a red scarf. Note that I would contact you for final confirmation 24 hours before the event, where if there is no response from you by 8pm of the day before the event, I would consider that you would "no-show". Thanks and therefore do respond to me real near the event.

How much does this tour cost?

Free tours do not have a set price, instead, each person gives the guru at the end of the tour the amount that he or she considers appropriate (these usually range from €10 to $50 depending on satisfaction with the tour).
