I'm Sue, the WISE & INTELLIGENT Guru of Hong Kong :) I'm a fun multilinguist LEGAL EAGLE (speaking Mandarin/Cantonese/English/French) and I am witty, smart, fun and kind. My tours are SMALL, FOCUSED & COSY. I love sharing and learning about different cultures. I've travelled through 50+ countries and I know what tourists love. I love everything that has to do with Hong Kong. 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 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! Let me show you Hong Kong with many wise giggles & fun laughs!

Hello travelers! I'm Sue, the wise guru from HK :)

Just a quick note on tipping: it's the standard practice for my tours, with a baseline of HKD150 per pax/per tour (HKD75 per child/per tour). Your support keeps my tours top-notch, with my historical expertise and academic background bringing your Hong Kong experience to the next level. While some guests go above and beyond this baseline, it's totally up to you! 🙏🏼

She keep demanding I cancel numerous times because she was going to be out of town. I contacted you and GuruWalk said she need to cancel tour. She contacted me again on day of tour to have me cancel again.

The walking tour through the centrum was great to get a first impression of the city and an overview of its history paired with lots of fun facts. I really liked Susanna as a guide. She does her job passionately! Was much fun. After the first tour I instantly booked another one with her (monster building) which was awesome as well! Can't recommend enough!
