        Did not find the bus, however, I was at the pick up place before 7.00 pm:( I waited till 7.20 pm and then left. Maybe there is some change in the bus schedule or the pick up location?

        A great way to see Hongkong
        I love the Big Bus Company - my 'go to' place when I am in a strange city to get a feel for the place. We booked a 48 hour ticket which we got for a 50% seasonal reduction (watch out for promotions, they are worth having). There are three routes, there is one which takes you out to Stanley, Aberdeen Harbour, Repulse Bay, another one through the Financial District and another route through Kowloon.. There are a lot of stops to hop off to go for a walk. If you get off at Aberdeen Harbour, watch out for their sampan to take you round the harbour. We also had a free ticket to Sky 100, the tallest building in Hongkong. There were lots of freebies included, you are spoilt for choice: Sky 100 (you would pay app HK $ 180 for the ticket), two return tickets on the star ferry, reduced coffee in Starbucks near the Star Ferry, reduced entrance fees. It's a great way to experience HK at your own pace.

        Great Layover Activity to see the City
        What a great way to spend a 15 hour lay over in Hong Kong! We stopped in Hong Kong on our way to Vietnam. And I'm so glad that we did. Hong Kong is such an awesome place, even from the little bit that I experienced (can't wait to come and visit Hong Kong specifically) we did the one tours of the Old Town Central tour with a Peak Tram Sky Pass. It was really a great way to be able to explore and learn about the city. The audio is very detailed and informative and the stops are awesome! Luckily the Big Bus Sightseeing starting point is right by the IFC Mall which is connected to the International airport by train, so it makes it the perfect activity to do, and the easiest way to explore a city you haven't really done much research on. Definitely worth doing while in Hong Kong, especially during a long lay over from the airport.

        The only way to get an overview of the city.
        While we were given a two day pass for the cost of one day (business was seriously down because of the corona virus scare and the demonstrations), we only used one of the days. But it was of the downtown core and did give us an overview of the city and the multiple businesses that reside in its center. Everyone was wearing masks, so it put a damper on our normal explorations. Even with that, we were happy we went for the one day (we were leaving the next day and would be busy packing, etc).

        Everything was well organised!.
        I did the two-day Hop On Hop Off package including visits to the the Victoria Peak on Hong Kong island and the Sky100 Observation Deck in Kowloon, for 679 Hong Kong Dollars or about 80 euros all-in. For me, it was a great and exciting way to rediscover Hong Kong, after not being here for more than 11 years.

        Our guide Monica showed us around the highlights of Honk Kong explaining the history and points of interest along the route. There was plenty of time for photos and to ask questions. The ticket price included the opportunity to try a local food and drink

        Not enough buses on green line
        Bought a classic one day ticket for 2 of us. Used the red line, in and around Hong Kong first of all, started at the Pier area and sat on it all the way round. Commentary on ear phones worked fine, limited facts and a lot of repetitive music. The bus goes fast when it can and is very slow around the central area. Got off at the pier to be told the next green line bus (Stanley & Repulse Bay) was 1/2 hour away. Had a coffee and returned to be told it wasn’t for another hour as there was a procession. So we got a taxi out to Repulse Bay, didn’t see any processions! Had a lovely lunch and waited for over an hour at the stop for the bus to arrive. Had downloaded the app which is supposed to show where the buses are. Not working. Had 3 increasingly irritating phone calls with control asking where the bus was. Eventually it arrived. The problem is there is no competition. So do it if you want, just don’t get off, you might have a long wait. My complaint was deal with by a sudden inability to understand English!

        Terrible - don’t do it!
        Blatant cash-grab with appalling service. I don’t recommend this company at all.I wouldn’t do this tour again - I would just take taxis (cheap in HK) to the specific locations I want to see. Also, the red tourist bus in the city is free of charge to hop-on hop-off. Avoid this Big Bus tour - it’s really terrible.

        Comfortable tour
        We booked the tour to Aberdeen and the Hong Kong Island route. From the upper deck you have a good view and can do sightseeing in comfort. Especially the tour to Aberdeen was a positive surprise. Sandy beach and lots of green. Comfortable boarding point at the Ferry Terminal. During our visit we were practically the only guests and due to the protests unfortunately not all tours were carried out for safety reasons.

        Great way to see Hong Kong
        We did red line then green then across harbour to blue line - great way to get an overview in one day. Would say relative to others the commentary was bit sparse could have had more history and details. Also at 45 minutes apart the bus frequency would be better more often. But overall highly recommended

        Great way to explore a new city...
        Always a great way to find your beatings when in a new city. Bought the 24 hr ticket that was perfectly timed over 2 days. Spent the first day exploring Hong Kong Island, day 2 was spent wandering around Stanley market( an absolute must when in Hong Hong. Unfortunately the Kowloon route was suspended at the time of our trip.

        Disappointing service... but walking tour was great
        I bought deluxe ticket which is valid 2 days and has some additional excursions. Unfortunately, due to protests blue line wasn’t working (I tried to find bus stops-failed), I got this information only at the reception desk- no email after buying the ticket. Also night excursion was cancelled 😕 no reimbursement or replacement at all. I was upset. Though the guide of the walking excursion was great. Very experienced and pleasant. Knows a lot about history! I recommend to buy only his excursion.

        Paid for Deluxe package then found out Kowloon tours arent operating
        I was very disappointed to have paid for a deluxe 2 day ticket then discovered that the Kowloon (Blue Line) buses werent running due to the protests. Wish they had of warned me before I handed over the $$$. The tours and extras were very good. Myself and other guests stood around at Pier 7 and despite there being 5 company employees and 2 buses standing there it took 15 mins for staff to work out what time the green bus was leaving, I desperately needed to go to the toilet across the road but had to hang around until someone could work it out, it seemed to be very disorganised on that particular day.

        Easy option
        I was shattered after a long flight and wanted to see the sights of Hong Kong and also keep myself awake. This was the easy option. I did the two lines on the Island side on day 1, and the Kowloon line + the night tour on day 2. Good value

      Debacle - from start to finish. What a total nightmare. Booked in the shop at Star Ferry, the woman in the centre had no idea what she was doing - it was a clear as mud were we were allocated and we repeatedly asked about each day. Gave two tickets for the ferry as part of the deal. Did the red route in day one and green route on day two. Went to get on again to visit the temple and was told we hadn’t paid. 20 minutes later, showing credit card receipts etc we were let on. Dreadful service in the office and the terrible service at the dock. All drivers were really good and when it works it’s well worth the money.

      The Big Bus Hong Kong Open Top Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour is a great way to see the city in a short amount of time. The buses have open tops, so you can get great views of the city as you go. The buses also have audio commentary in multiple languages, so you can learn about the history and culture of Hong Kong as you travel.

      I took the Big Bus tour on my first day in Hong Kong, and I was really impressed. The buses were clean and comfortable, and the audio commentary was informative and interesting. I was able to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time, and I learned a lot about its history and culture.

      I would definitely recommend the Big Bus Hong Kong Open Top Hop-On Hop-Off Sightseeing Tour to anyone visiting the city. It is a great way to get your bearings and see some of the most popular tourist attractions.

      I could not rate the ladies who work for this company highly enough. We visited the office at the Star Ferry terminal first and they told us everything we needed to know and even reactivated our old Oyster Cards. At the Island side others were equally helpful. A lady at the Peak Tram stop was also wonderful.
      The bus drivers were very nice as well. The bus tours are really good. Totally recommend this company.

A woman who treated me so well, with a kind heart and good intentions. She is one of the good ones and I really appreciate her for her help and guidance during my solo travel experience.

      Bus never runs on time. It is an hour wait between buses. We waited 50 mins at Peak tram for the Red bus only to go 1 stop to Pier then wait an hour for the bus to resume! What a joke in 35deg heat 90% humidity with kids!
      You also have to redeem and get paper tickets to go on the peak tram. The lady at central only gave us one ticket however the peak tram company said we need 1 each printed off. 40 mins later trying to get this resolved no apology just a comment from their staff that “this happens all the time” !!! Otherwise your is a good way to see HK and to waste your day waiting for busses 😫
