Detailed Itinerary:

In the morning, your private English-speaking guide will pick you up from your hotel. The starting time is flexible for you to decide. Your guide will call you at the hotel one day in advance or leave a message to double-check the collection time with you.

Your first stop is Victoria Peak, which is also the highest peak of Hong Kong. Victoria Peak has a beautiful landscape and is now becoming a high level residential area. It is Hong Kong’s premier tourist destination. It features the 112-old-year Peak Tram and Hong Kong’s most unusual building, the Peak Tower, which is the terminal building of the Peak Tram, the destination of Madame Tussauds and the best place to overlook the city.

Good to know:
One way Peak Tram (8 minutes) is included. Your guide will purchase the ticket for you in advance to save your time, but during peak season, you will still need to queue for about 8 to 20 minutes to take the tram. Your experienced guide will adjust the itinerary flexibly to minimize the waiting time.

Victoria Peak

The next spot is the “Golden Beach” in Hong Kong, Repulse Bay. Located at the southern part of the peak, Repulse Bay is the most representative bay of Hong Kong. Shaped as a crescent, the bay stretches a long way; the waves are gentle and the sand is soft. It is now one of Hong Kong’s most exclusive residential areas.

Aberdeen

Our last stop is a special one; we have planned an experience for you in the fishermen’s living area — Aberdeen. It has become a world-famous travel spot for its fishing village customs and seafood. A sampan ride for 15 minutes is included for you to have a close-up look at this unusual way of life.

Good to know:

If you are not interested in Repulse Bay, we can arrange Stanley Market for you instead. Once a fishing village, Stanley Market is now a great destination for purchasing various goods, including Chinese-style works of art, silk fabric, antiques, and king-size clothes.

At the end of the tour, you will be escorted back to your hotel.

2. Special Notes for a Seat-in-a-Coach Tour

1) A seat-in-coach tour minimizes costs because expenses are shared among a larger group.

2) Seat-in-coach tours are operated by local business partners of China Highlights around China. China Highlights chooses business partners by strict quality standards. The service of a seat-in-coach tour may not always be as considerate as that of a private tour.

3) Visiting one or two shops or markets is always included in a seat-in-coach tour, but there is no pressure to buy if you are not interested.

4) A seat-in-coach tour usually consists of more than five people. You will have a local guide and use a 24-or-45-seat air-conditioned coach. We will pick you up at some appointed hotels at an appointed time. In contrast, a private tour provides a private car and guide, and we will pick you up at your hotel.
