          Best tour in Hong Kong
          When you visit Hong Kong you simply must book a tour with this company. Our tour guide, Mandy, was truly amazing. Her knowledge of Hong Kong and her enthusiasm was outstanding. Everywhere we went she explained the history and how things work today clearly and with a lot of detail. She was happy to answer all our questions as well as share her good humour. Her English is excellent and her great personality ensured a fabulous experience. Mandy was also happy to accommodate our needs and tailor our tour accordingly.

          Hong Kong discovery
          We came to HongKong for the first time this January. When planning our trip I chose the “HongKong getaway” for the tour and now I know how lucky this choice appeared to be. Mandy, our guide, was not only perfectly organized and knowledgeable. She was also very attentive, took care of our needs every moment. She told us much about the city and its people, showed amazing places and views. We were so much impressed with our first day with Mandy that asked her to make another tour on the next day. We saw city and beaches, wet markets and big malls, tasted freshly cooked seafood and got an online help with the restaurant menu. She helped us with transport and shopping, and even with the program of our next tour. Her advices were really priceless and made our stay. We are happy to recommend “HongKong getaway“ as a fantastic opportunity to discover Hong Kong.

          Amazing Tour!
          We did a 6 hour tour with Mandy. We asked to go to areas and see things that as first time visitors to Hong Kong, we would be unlikely to discover. It included seeing temples, gardens, local markets, fishing village, boat trip and lunch at what I can only describe as one of the tastiest meals I’ve ever had. We went to a market, chose various fresh seafood including prawns, razor clams, fish and squid, took it upstairs to a restaurant and they cooked it all fresh. To say it was incredible is an understatement. As for Mandy, she was the prefect host, so friendly and knowledgeable and really made our trip. A huge thanks. Book this tour - you will love it!

          Touring with a Friend - Mandy
          Mandy was phenomenal! I know this review is ridiculously long overdue but that has nothing to do with her effort or her tour. She had great information for the four of us - just there for one day before a cruise - showed us the highlights, introduced us to some interesting foods and areas, adjusted according to what we were enjoying, and really just felt like a friend giving us a tour. We all agreed that we couldn’t have done better.

          Hong Kong & its Yin Yan Charm
          Mandy & Apple/(M&A )took me in multiple adventures in Hong Kong where I discovered the beautiful fusion of East meets West culture. HK has so much to offer, from the Star Ferry rides that take you back in history where it was the Only transportation Form bwt Islands, to the breath taking view of Sunset at Victoria Harbor, to enjoying a stroll on Avenue of the Stars in Kowloon among HK melting pot community where one can also see the endless charm of HK Island with its backdrop mountains... after six months of being an active tourist in HK :), I still have so much to discover with M&A guidance. These two young dynamic worldly cheerful tour guides are not just so proud to show their city, they also love sharing the many hidden treasures around HK. M&A make sure every outing is unique and full filling in all aspects. Be ready for an unmatched tour with these two passionate Hong Kongers. I really love that M&A take you to the least traveled roads. They start with the usual tourists spots which one Must see, then they unveil HK real charm one trip at a time. From the most rewarding hiking trails to the BEST local food, these two ladies definitely know what they are doing! Brace yourself for an unmatched adventure every time you are in the company of M&A. HK is so lovable & so is M&A. Tip Ask M&A to take you to the tastiest Beef Brisket dry noodles ..... then go straight to indulge in HK style Waffle in Shau Ki Wan. U will want to go back to this local joint over and over 😬😋

          Amazing tour - it was like having family in Hong Kong
          My family was on a cruise and had an overnight stay with two days to see some of Hong Kong. We went with Apple both days of our visit, and it was an amazing experience. On the first day, we went up to Victoria Peak and explored downtown Hong Kong. On the second day, we visited the New Territories. Apple met us at the cruise terminal, and then we used the efficient Hong Kong public transit system get around. Apple did more than show us the sights. She candidly answered all questions we had regarding life in Hong Kong, and we felt that we learned a lot and gained a new appreciation of Hong Kong. She also brought us to places where there were not a lot of tourists, including a housing development and other places, including a fish farm and remote island, in the New Territories, and even helped us understand Taoist and Buddhist worship, and a fortune teller's analysis at a Taoist shrine. In addition, one of our goals was to enjoy dim sum and Cantonese food. We have food allergies (shellfish and nuts). Apple ensured that everything we ordered would comply with our dietary needs. She took us to two restaurants where we had the best meals of our three-week vacation.

          Best of Hong Kong Private Tour
          Mandy could not have been more knowledgable and more hospitable! She showed us the best day! Mandy showed us all the different areas of Hong Kong using a variety of public transportation. Her English was perfect. We enjoyed a delicious lunch together at a local restaurant. You must hire this company. You will not be disappointed. Loved every moment.

          Amazing Day in Hong Kong
          Myself and three colleagues were in Hong Kong on business the week of January 13 2020. On the Thursday we booked a four hour tour. Apple was our tour guide. She did an amazing job showing us Hong Kong and letting us experience the city through her eyes. I would highly recommend anyone looking to see Hong Kong as a local to book this tour. Apple was a phenomenal host!!1

          Excellent tour guides
          We had a layover in HongKong in December 2019 and I did a 7-hour day tour with Apple along with my 2 teen daughters. It was an awesome experience. I was in touch with Mandy and Apple for several days prior to our trip. They patiently answered all my questions and clarified my doubts and concerns, especially in the light of he ongoing protests in HK right now. We encountered no issues during our time in HK. Apple met with us at the airport and took us on an exhilarating tour of HongKong. We covered both Lantau and HongKong islands. Some of the things we covered included Tai O Fishing Village Tian Tan Buddha, Po Lin Monastery NP360 Cable Car ride Lunch at Hong Kong style cafe "Cursing Business" & Causeway Bay wet markets, Victoria Peak and Lugard Road. I strongly recommend Mandy and Apple at HongKong Getaway. They are the best.

          Absolutely the warmest Hosts ever
          We were on a budget trip with my elderly parents and Mandy ensured we had the most memorable time ever. She was caring, extremely warm and we took away facets of culture we would have entirely missed! The transport booked was impeccable she took care of the little details like arranging towels (we visited in July and it was raining!), we had an authentic food experience ! I hope to visit Hong Kong Again and book a trip with her again!

          Outstanding guide and tour, fun for all even under unusual circumstances (kosher, large family, wheelchair)
          We are a kosher-observant family of eight (kids ages 5-18 -- three little kids, three teens), and one of our party broke her leg a week before the trip. We were joined by three additional relatives after initially booking the tour, and to complicate things further, we were starting out on Lantau Island and ending on Hong Kong Island. Given the limitations -- we could not partake of the food and local transportation as others have described. Nonetheless, Apple managed to craft a personalized tour that hit on major cultural and scenic highlights -- Tai O Fishing Village, Mong Kok Birds Market, Tsim Sha Tsui Harbourfront Promenade, Star Ferry across the Victoria Harbour, and Victoria Peak -- arranged the perfect transportation, kept the kids' and adults' rapt attention (and befriended the little ones and patiently answered all their questions). The tour was completely wheelchair friendly, which was incredible. We were very impressed with her knowledge, humor, and her intense love for her city. She did not hesitate to extend the tour an extra hour to accommodate our kids' Hershey's spree at the candy store at the Peak. After we arrived at the hotel, we realized I had left passports back at our hotel in Lantau, and she stayed extra time to speak with the hotel on our behalf to help track them down. She also advised us of activities to hit when we weren't touring with her (AIA carnival, Aqualuna junk ride) that made the rest of our trip truly memorable. She has our highest recommendation!

          Five star for a reason!
          It is no surprise to me that Mandy and Apple have all 5 star reviews - they totally deserve it! We had the most amazing experience with Mandy over three days in Hong Kong. Taking a tour with Mandy is like travelling with a friend, she is extremely knowledgeable, adapted our tour to suit our needs and is such a friendly and bubbly person. My dad and I felt completely at ease with her from our first meeting. On the first evening we went to Victoria Peak for sunset - the skyline is beautiful and Mandy new all the shortcuts as well as the best spots to stand for an unrivalled view of the city, away from the crowds. After this we went to a local food hall for dinner that was hidden away through a tiny entrance and up a few floors in what looked to me to be a random building! We would have had no idea that there were places to eat in there without Mandy. The place was full of local people eating traditional food, and we sat on tables with other local people and shared food whilst they tried to teach us how to use chopsticks! It was amazing to experience food like a local. On our second day we went took a 6 hour private tour by car, and saw the Chi Lin nunnery, Nan Lian Garden, Tai Po market and wild Monkey's in Kam Shan Country Park. We also tried lots of traditional food in Tai Po including some amazing steamed dumplings. As a vegetarian, Mandy always made sure I was catered for! We ended the day by seeing the bird market, flower market and goldfish market in Mong Kok. This tour is amazing because you see so much in a day! For our final day we visited Tai O fishing village and then Lantau island to see the Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastry taking the Ngong Ping cable car on the way back to avoid the crowds. Even after our time with Mandy sadly came to an end, she sent us recommendations of places to visit and things to eat so that we spent the rest of our tie in Hong Kong wisely. I had such an amazing time in Hong Kong, and without a doubt my experiences would have been nowhere near as great or as genuine without Mandy. I feel that we truly 'experienced' Hong Kong, and we got so much more out of our time than if we had tried to do it alone. I would recommend taking a tour with Mandy without hesitation!

          HIghlights of Hong Kong at night!
          We booked Getway for a tour on our very first night in Hong Kong and were not disappointed! Apple gave us an insight of Hong Kong from a local perspective, going to delicious local restaurants, catching ding dongs, buses, you name it, markets and finishing the night with a roof top bar and amazing view. They also shared some get information for the rest of our trip which we used and enjoyed. Highly Recommend!

          Fantastic Day in Hong Kong with the Best Tour Guide!
          Words can not describe how amazing it was to see a city I have always dreamed of visiting. Mandy as my tour guide made the experience of visiting Hong Kong more amazing than I could have ever imaged. Spending the day with her made me feel like I was with a best friend showing me around their city. You can tell she geniuely has a passion for what she is doing. During the tour not only did we visit some of the touristy areas, like The Peak, we also visited more local areas. This included visiting a fishing village by boat ride, I highly recommend this. We also visited local markets and I tried some of the most amazing food. Mandy did an excellent job choosing items for me to try when I told her I did not like seafood. Also, we visited local housing that showed how many families in Hong Kong live. To finish the tour off we had a ride on the Star Ferry, the view of the Hong Kong skyline at night was beautiful. I loved the fact that we used many different variants of local transportation as this allowed me to get a much more local experience. I can not recommend enough that you book a tour with Hong Kong Getaway Private Tours. No one should visit Hong Kong for the first time without booking a tour with them. Mandy, thank you again for showing me around your amazing city! You did an awesome job showing me so much of your city in one day.

          Great introductory tour
          We pre booked this tour on the recommendation of another person. We booked it for our first full day in Hong Kong and was a great introduction. Mandy met us at our hotel reception and during the day we used all four forms of public transport- MRT, bus, tram and ferry. Mandy helped us to purchase our Octopus card and explained how to use it.We went from one side of Hong Kong to another seeing and hearing about history, culture and major attractions. We had DimSum lunch which was delicious and Mandy also told us about how to politely and correctly eat the food. Mandy escorted us back to our hotel at the end, which was about an hour later than expected. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend it to anyone wanting an overview of Hong Kong. Mandy speaks fluent English and is a delightful person.

        What a fabulous day! Mandy planned a perfect day that fit in all the sites we wanted to see and took us to a delicious local dim sum restaurant for lunch. She was a wealth of knowledge and was a pleasure to spend the day with. We were sad when our day together ended. We would highly recommend Mandy for anyone looking for a private tour guide of Hong Kong.
