An interesting and enjoyable time that was invaluable for the rest of my week. As I went about Hong Kong I was able to recognise where I was and share interesting information with my business colleagues and friends. The tour was well-paced and flexible so that we covered a lot of ground and saw a lot of different things but, Jennifer as excellent at adapting to the changing pedestrian traffic and the weather. It threatened rain all day but, we were never caught out when it fell.
Jennifer was personable, friendly and very well informed. I learned about history, culture and colloquial life in Hong Kong. For example, I learned about the influence of feng shui on the placement, orientation and design of buildings by the biggest banks. Even more entertaining was to hear how new buildings by the mainland Chinese used feng shui to challenge Hong Kong skyline landmarks and then how those buildings were modified to respond. This is just one example of the sort of local knowledge, combining politics, culture, superstition, philosophy and history, which really helps one gain an insight into life in Hong Kong.
If you prefer to see life from the street than through the window of a bus then this is the tour for you. If you are lucky enough to get Jennifer as your guide then that will be a wonderful bonus.

Really interesting to learn about the history of Hong Kong. Hong Kong island is both historically fascinating and beautiful with all the wonderful parks and gorgeous buildings. Great day with Danny--a very interesting and well informed guide who treated us to a fabulous day seeing the city..
