Hi i''m wanting to go to Guangzhou for a day trip does the Star Ferry in Kowloon have a tour? If so could you please give me some information.
There is no Guangzhou trip from Star Ferry in Kowloon. However, if you need, we could arrange a Guangzhou trip for you. We always suggest bullet trains between Hong Kong and Guangzhou and it is about 3 hours. You could take a morning train to Guangzhou and take a train back after the trip.
There are lots day trips in Guangzhou and you could know here: http://www.chinahighlights.com/day-trips/guangzhou-essence.htm
When would you want to take the tour?
