This tour was the highlight of my trip we had a great guide who was very organized and explained all we needed to know before the night started and looked after us through-out the night..The food was great and the drinks just kept coming!! I would recommend this to any one who love meeting people and enjoyed a little punt . Jacky, Queensland

Excellent night out, good value for money. We would recommend it if you get the opportunity on a racing night to attend. Food and good company and not forgetting the racing was fantastic and the guide was great fun and full if useful tips

Great view of the races in very pleasant surroundings. Very helpful guide even showed us how to place our bets, and the food and drink at the buffet were first rate. In all a very enjoyable evening. Would recommend to all Hong Kong visitors.

We walked to the designated hotel for a pickup to find the lobby full of eager racegoers all looking forward to a unique night and perhaps a small profit to brag about when they return home from their holiday.
Our guide gathered us and ushered us onto a bus bound for the Happy Valley racecourse. At the track we were guided through a door and into a lift which took us to the sixth floor of the members stand. Not quite dark but the illuminated course below and the brightly lit city buildings surrounding it took our breath away. A central screen dominated the centre of the course providing excellent viewing of the track and horses positions when racing.
Behind glass our table was positioned at the front of the dining room offering an excellent visual of all proceedings. Screens were also overhead showing many views of the track and made it possible to sit comfortably at the table to view races, but of course the excitement was outside on the decking when the horses were released from the starting stalls.
Cleverly planned, we were seated with six other Aussies, travellers and our country our common ground. All agreed the buffet meal provided was excellent and many visited the table several times. Wine and beer was included in the overall price and considering the number of patrons in this one of many dining rooms was chosen well and suited every palate. This trip also included a visit downstairs to the mounting yards and betting rings. We think this guided tour of the excellent Happy Valley racecourse is the best way to see this spectacle and allows entrance into the members stand and its facilities. The $30HK betting voucher is an added bonus and our successful bet from it provided ongoing betting for the rest of the night.
Hong Kong have used this prime piece of real estate very well, giving a nighttime sporting event twice a week and using the central area for tennis and soccer under lights. A good trip, highly recommended.

The entire experience was even better than I hoped. The staff and tour guide were brilliant. I can't wait to do it again.

Would give this tour 6 stars if we could! We had a fantastic day and were treated like royalty from start to finish. We were in a corporate box with a delicious buffet and unlimited drinks. Even if you know nothing about horses you will have lots of fun and our very friendly guide, Shoo, was always on hand to help with placing bets. This is one of the best Viator tours that we have ever done!
