    My full day customised tour of Hong Kong was truly an amazing experience! I was impressed with the local knowledge, experience and professionalism of Mel, my tour guide. Mel was fully committed to making my tour feel as authentic and memorable as possible. I would highly recommend this tour to anybody wishing to get a good overview of Hong Kong in one full day.

    It made for a half-day excursion, but enjoyed every moment of it. Started with a 25 minute cable car (we opted for the crystal bottom floor which is for thrillseekers ) that overlooked Landau island (so pretty). The cable cars were steady and did not even rock in the wind (that's good as I have been on those that have). Upon arrival, we had a short trek to the Big Buddha which was reasonable in distance. The stairs were not bad, however, if you have NO excercise regimen you WILL find it challenging. Once we reached the top, we were able to see some additional views of Landau worth snapshotting. As you depart, there are nice souvenir shops to do some last minute purchasing. We also opted to have a quick bite at the one of several food shoppes and was pleasantly surprised by what we ate. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit!!

    we did the private walking tour of lantau island, including the big buddha and tai o village. Our guide (Alex) really tried to find special things to entertain our young girls, pointed out good locations to try street food, and found us a nice spot for lunch on the beach. Having a guide was great, because navigating the queues for the cable car aren't straight forward and she was able to show us more of the village than we would have explored on our own. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins but that is a gamble with any tour. Though we had younger children (5-7), there is a lot of walking on this tour (probably around 10K steps) and it wouldn't work well with strollers. We only did this one tour with the company but Alex was very knowledgeable about the city and could likely do a great job with any of their tours.

    My family and I did a kayaking trip to tje Ung Kong islands with Rory. It was a tough day's work. But a fantastic time with amazing views. You won't believe that you're in Hong Kong. Highly recommend all Hong Kong locals to give it a try. You'll discover a part of our city you never knew existed. Deserted sandy beaches. Unique rock formations and caves that you can explore and even go through. Keep up the good work Rory.

    We took the layover tour with Richard. This was our first visit to Hong King and it turned out to be a great way to sample it’s famous sights, culture, food, history and geography. Richard adjusted the tour as per our preferences and along the way gave us insights into various aspects of Hong Kong. Besides popular places he also took us off the beaten path to give us an insiders view. All in all the tour exceeded our expectations and is highly recommended.

    Fabulous trip. The walled city was demolished in 1990 and replaced by a park so we knew there was not much to see physically. But Stephanie wove such a compelling story that we were able to experience the walled city and feel what it was like!

    I would definitely recommend this tour. We had Ivan as our tour guide. He was really knowledgeable and made the walk thoroughly enjoyable and interesting. Although we have been to Hong Kong before and have previously wandered about in the Sheung Wan and Central area on our own, we never really knew the history of the place. I learned a great deal during the tour.

    The tour operator (all communication was via Ada) was really helpful in adjusting the start time to suit our flight plans and agreeing to start the tour from our hotel instead of the MTR station. A day prior to the tour, they discovered a protest was planned to take place at Central and this would have coincided with the latter third of our tour. I am very grateful they agreed to go ahead with the scheduled tour after I chose to ignore all their dire warnings about the protest and declined the option to defer to another day. They could have chosen to cancel but didn't. Nothing untoward happened. We were very well taken care of. Ivan kept track of what was going on at the protest site via messages from friends. I got a few snaps of the police in their riot gear and guns loaded with canisters of tear gas from a afar up on the hill on way to St John's Cathedral. All quite exciting!

    ps. I was prepared to get tear gassed, if need be, and requested Ada to get some baking soda for me ahead of time.

    My husband and I took the Happy Valley cemeteries tour with Stéphanie.

    Her knowledge and passion for Hong Kong made this tour very insightful and lively, guiding us through the history and life of many important people to their contributions to this great city.

    Thank you Stéphanie and HK à la carte.

    My husband and I have been fortunate to be able to travel the globe so I feel we're familiar with "quality" services versus those that lack. When I was researching local companies for customized touring in Hong Kong, I was fortunate to stumble upon Hong Kong a la Carte.  Throughout the planning stages with Alex (her emails were intelligent and she was sensitive to my ever-changing requests), and leading up to meeting our guide, Stephanie, we were pleased and impressed. 

    When we met Stephanie her charm and class were an immediate draw, but in short order we realized she offered more than that - she was knowledgeable, sincere, flexible, and patient. She was also proactive...offering alternatives on the spot when we didn't want to linger longer, or patiently waiting when we lingered too long! Aside from learning about Hong Kong's past (through conversations and historical photos she brought), we also learned about the city's recent history and current affairs. When we wanted to delve into the "soul" of the city and experience it more as a local, she was mindful of our comfort and safety while happily accommodating our every whim. 

    Since the weather was great in late December, we opted to walk almost everywhere but there were additional modes of transport sprinkled in.

    *Ride a taxi when we were tired? No problem.
    *Hop on a tram (or two) for a ride? Sure.
    *Hire a private transfer vehicle? Of course. 
    *Take the Star Ferry and underground transit? Done.
    *Have our fortunes told? Scheduled. 
    *Locate a shoemaker to make custom shoes? She knew exactly where to take us.
    *We inquired about a fave eatery she would enjoy for lunch one day. She took us to Hutong Restaurant in Kowloon. Aside from the unending views of Victoria Harbor and the city, the food was fresh and (very) tasty, served in an atmosphere of cool / updated Old World. 
    *Stop for that umpteenth photo? She even provided tips for better shots.

    Within a day (or two) of our departure, Stephanie sent an email outlining the details of our experiences. We can't rave highly enough.

    Even though we know Hong Kong quite well, we discovered SO MANY things with Alexandra! We loved the historical lesson she gave us at the start of the tour, and then also enjoyed a lot being able to visit and talk to local vendors and learn about their life stories!

    Very fascinating and enjoyable. Ben, my tour guide made it all easy to take in. I walked more than 18000 steps (recorded by my fitbit) without feeling it. It was a phenomenal experience. I would recommend it to everyone.

    After the cruise line cancelled 2 of our tours in Hong Kong (due to the Chinese New Year) we contacted Alexandra and she was more then willing to help us in exploring Hong Kong. She planed a 7 hour day for us and despite the craziness on the streets, her and the driver were able to show us as much as possible in that period or time. We were a group of 10, the tour was private and she was more than accommodating throughout the day. Perfect English and very knowledgeable about the history of Hong Kong. Overall, very happy with her and I will highly recommend her for anyone looking to spend a day in that city.
