      Walked and Talked
      I had a tour with George - what can I say this was an excellent tour. George met me and explained the different elements around Hong Kong. We walked and talked and explored Hong Kong. He showed me the sites while keeping things interesting. He answered my questions. I am very impressed. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and George as someone who not only will show you around - he loves Hong Kong and it shows when he talks about it.

      We had a lovely time wandering the smaller streets and trying treats in small restaurants and outlets. We finished at the harbour with a ferry trip.

      A great way to see Hong Kong
      We booked this tour when we had a long layover and wanted to see some of Hong Kong and we are so glad we did it. Our guide Jazz was excellent. She was knowledgeable and fun, and she personalized the experience for us. Between seeing the sights, learning some of the history, and eating some delicious Dim Sum, we felt like we made the absolute most of our time here.

      Kowloon with a Local
      We had a wonderful tour with Nik our guide. She met us in front of a primary temple with huge crowds, but she still found us on time. We walked thru an active temple, rode the subway to a beautiful garden and visited an elaborate buddhist nunnery. We had time for a thouroughly Hong Kong lunch with many delicious dishes. Nik was fun to be with and spoke excellent english. She made our day in Kowloon meaningful and a true local experience. The company was quick to respond, organized a custom tour fro us with no complications or difficulties. Highly recommend City Unscripted Hong Kong and our guide Nik.

      Amazing Introduction to Hong Kong with a Local
      My Husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 6 hour tour with our guide Mark. Mark was very friendly and easy going and engaged in all aspects of our tour. We were very pleased to leave the planning of the itinerary up to Mark and he organized our time perfectly with a great mix of history, tourist spots, and sampling of foods. His knowledge of the history of the city was amazing and he also gave us tours of the markets frequented by locals. Not only did Mark do a great job of showing us his city but he went above and beyond to provide us with helpful information and advice before the tour even started. He arranged all of our transportation and we experienced all modes. From car to tram to subway to ferry, Mark covered it all. Thank you City Unscripted for a great tour with a great guide. We couldn't have asked for anything more!!!

      One day tour in Hong Kong
      We had a private tour scheduled March 16 with Kiyo to go to Lantau island on the cable car. We received an e mail from Kiyo a few days before the tour that the cable car was closing for maintenance. Originally we were disappointed but decided to do a tour with Kiyo anyway. It was FABULOUS. Kiyo was informative, friendly, knowledgeable and very proud to share his city with us. Would definitely recommend him for a tour.

      Private and personalized walking tour of Hong Kong.
      The guide spent an inordinate amount of time on his phone attending to other business during our tour, which was not appropriate given the price of our private personalized walking tour. Several times, we were not able to ask questions because he was on another call. Otherwise, he was pleasant and engaged.

      Wonderful intro to Hong Kong.
      We had a great day with Nik from City Unscripted We were met on time, with a super convenient hotel pick up. The tour was completely personalized to what we wanted. Saw a chinese temple, incredible Zen gardens and nunnery including a fascinating exhibition on traditional pagoda wood architecture, waterfront promenade, avenue of stars, star ferry, old police and prison compound and so much more. Learnt a lot about Hong Kongs history and heritage, as well as an eyeopener as to getting around the city using the subway and ate at a local eatery with delicious noodle soup, which we would never have found on our own. Highly recommend for travelers not scared of walking; and looking for an authentic experience.

      An excellent Hong Kong one day local tour.
      We joined a Hong Kong local tour organized by a tour operator, Zion Travel Service. The local tour included a HK milk tea session then followed by a very sumptuous lunch. Then the tour brought us to Kowloon City Park where we visited the famous old Kowloon City. We completed the day with a visit to the Ocean Park. It was an action packed but very meaningful tour with excellent tour guides and arrangements.

    Mark was an extremely knowledgeable host who took excellent care of us all day. With my 8 year old son, plus grandparents in tow, he took us on a tailored-made overview of the city that kept everyone engaged for hours. We couldn't recommend this more!

    Victor was a fantastic guide - gave the right balance between showing us the city and providing the history behind the different architecture. I felt a little bad though because our family was so jet lagged so we seemed a bit disengaged, but that was because we had started the tour only a couple hours after landing in Hong Kong. Nevertheless, Victor was patient with us and did his best to show us all the “touristy” places we wanted to see and do. He also did a great job in navigating us through the city to avoid large crowds as best as possible. I honestly don’t think we would have seen the city to its fullest if it had been just my family. Highly recommend this tour company and Victor!

    I had a 15 hr layover in Hong Kong and decided to make the most of my time with a private tour guide. I was sent a survey to learn my interests. Then my guide Alfred reached out with a proposed itinerary for the day and asked my opinion. I asked him to add a few things, which he did gladly and we connected via WhatsApp.

    The day of my arrival, I made it into the city via the train. Alfred met me as planned. He was friendly and ready to guide me through his city. I learned how to keep up with him through the streets and while the day was exhausting, it was TOTALLY worth it.

    A warning that has nothing to do with Alfred... While you are informed in advance what is not included in the cost of the private tour, it would've been nice to have an idea of how much additional HKD I'd need to bring. We took a couple taxis and the metro several times; Alfred had a metro card for me and I paid him for the transportation at the end of the day. Also, we went to a local dim sum restaurant for lunch at my request. I didn't mind sharing lunch with Alfred but again, just be prepared for the expense (in addition to whatever you were planning to spend).

    In any case, I'd book again. Alfred was delightful and made sure I saw everything I wanted and a lot more. I learned a lot about the city's history and the present state of affairs in HK. I enjoyed hearing his perspectives. He seemed pleased that I'd learned how to keep up and navigate the crowded streets with him by the end of the day.

    Thank you, Alfred, for a lovely day in HK!

    We only had 2 days to explore the best of Hong Kong so we booked a brilliant guide for half a day. Lydia got us up and running on all the public transport; which we were nervous about. She had a tailor made agenda so we could see some amazing places, stopped for photos and helped me buy a piece of art in an antiques shop.
    Lydia was lots of fun and really knowledgeable.
    Would highly recommended. She even messaged us the following day to make sure we had everything we needed for our plans.
    Excellent.

    My personalised tour with Evangeline was definitely tailored to suit my interests. We had such an easy rapport right from the start, it felt like seeing the city with a friend - who has local knowledge. I saw everything on my wish list, and more, despite the inclement weather! I would highly recommend a tour with Evangeline as she has a natural ability to tune into the type of person you are and tailor the experience to suit!

    This was the perfect way to experience life in Hong Kong and to sample the different forms of transport. We learned a great deal from Wai Lok and got a real feel of what it's like to live in the city. I'd recommend this way of seeing the city. You cover so much ground and just the right amount of time. It's quite active, so perfect if you like walking as we do.

    WOW! We had a fabulous afternoon and evening exploring and getting to know Hong Kong through the "lens" of a Hongkonger. Our guide Alfred was a beautiful person who graciously shared knowledge and insights of growing up and living in Hong Kong. He contacted us several days ahead of and on the morning of our activity giving us good advise which ensured we met up in the midst of HK with no trouble at all. Our tour was informative, insightful, enjoyable and above all memorable. It was such a pleasure to have the opportunity to sample the street food which was very tasty. It is without reservation that I recommend this tour to anyone who wants to see and experience Hong Kong as its people do every day - you will not be disappointed.

    We had a great time with Alfred! He was very professional, getting in touch with me right away and being willing to meet us a bit earlier so we can get back in time for our flight. It was pouring rain the morning of our tour but Alfred still was able to show us a lot by navigating the Ding Ding and metro system. We had 4 stops all across Hong Kong in 4 hours, which I thought was very impressive when you take into account travel. He was also very flexible, changing the itinerary to skip sights we have already seen and taking us to a delicious bakery for pineapple buns when the rain got too much for us. He was also very knowledgeable and included historical facts and daily living in Hong Kong

    Cosmos is incredible. He gave us the experience we were looking for in Hong Kong. He is extremely knowledgeable about life in Hong Kong and could answer all of our questions. He took us to areas of Hong Kong that were truly "hidden gems". He is delightful to spend time with and could not have been more helpful with everything from exchanging money to taking us to eat at his favorite restaurant.
