Detailed Itinerary for Private Tour:

Your private English-speaking guide will pick you up from your hotel. The start-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 pick-up time with you.

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

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

Victoria Peak

The next stop is Repulse Bay, Hong Kong’s “Golden Beach”. Located south of the peak, Repulse Bay is the bay most symbolic of Hong Kong. Shaped as a crescent, it 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 a special experience for you in the area where fishermen live — Aberdeen. It has become a world-famous travel spot for its fishing-village culture and seafood. A 15-minute sampan ride is included, for you to have a close-up look at this area’s unusual way of life.

Good to know:
If you are not interested in Aberdeen, 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-a-coach tour minimizes costs because expenses are shared among a larger group.

2) Seat-in-a-coach tours are operated by local business partners of China Highlights in Hong Kong. China Highlights chooses business partners using strict quality standards. The service on a seat-in-a-coach tour may however not always be to the same standards as that on 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-a-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 the appointed hotel at an appointed time. In contrast, a private tour provides a private car and guide.
