    Mr Chen is a first rate tour guide. His ease of sharing the history and background of the location was delightful. I was traveling for business and was happy to be able to take advantage of seeing this gem. It was well worth the time. I would recommend this to anyone interested in visiting the Big Buddha, seeing the magnificent temple, and experiencing the history of the 500 year Tai O village. If you get lucky as I did, you may even spot the rare pink dolphins during your boat ride (which does require an additional nominal fee from a local boat service). I plan to return again with my family for this same tour once again!

    This truly is the greatest, the fastest and the tallest day tour. Shenzhen was farmland not long ago and in 30 plus years became the 3rd largest city in China, with the second most skyscrapers in the world with the 5th tallest building in the world, and a bullet train to Hong Kong which takes a mere 13 minutes. Jacky expertly guided us on a full day of exploration of this new modern city. Once we arrived via train from Hong Kong, we chose to walk from one site to the next but if we were not up for the walking, Jacky could have ferried via taxi. We explored lively open air markets, massive underground malls, a flower festival at Lianhuashan Park, the Civic Center and 2 observations decks including the Ping A building that have 360 views of this impressive city.

    We highly recommend this tour with Jacky and his company, This Is Asia Tour. Jacky is very knowledgeable and customized the tour to our interests. You do need a China Visa which increases the cost but was very worth it for us.

    My husband and I were in Hong Kong for the first time. It was mostly a work trip, so we only had one day to really see the city together. Jackie gave us a wonderful overview of the city. We covered so much ground during our 4 hour tour. We learned a lot about the history of Hong Kong, tried some traditional food, explored the wet markets, and visited a fishing village. Jackie also gave me some great tips on things to do during the rest of our stay in Hong Kong, and offered his number for me to call for ideas and tips. It was a perfect tour.

    It was too crowded tough this is must visit when you are travelling to Hongkong. You will go through an adventurous cable car ride, a walk through ngong city and you will witness a great ambience of village like place. Than you will witness the great lord buddha. After climbing almost 400 stairs you will witness lord and feel so much of positivity.

    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.

    My coworker & I were on a business trip in Guangzhou & had 1 free day to explore. We came upon this tour. Damon was our tour guide. He was very communicative from the start. Reaching out multiple times before the day to make sure he arranged the perfect itinerary to our liking. Everything was arranged ahead of time including the tickets which meant no standing in line. He was the perfect guide; very informative in both cultural and historical information about Guangzhou & Hong Kong which made the entire experience more personal. His English was excellent. Even though it was only a day trip we felt we got to see the best of Hong Kong with the help of our tour guide’s recommendations. We could not have been more happy with our choice. Thanks again Damon for an unforgettable day!

    Jack is very easy to deal with. We had to make several adjustments on the schedule due to weather conditions. And Jack was very accommodating.

    Also, Jack is very familiar with the streets of Hong Kong! He took us to the local streets, showing local lifestyle, and local food! What an immersion. Thanks Jack!

    Alexandra is a very knowledgeable and nice guide. She has shared a lot of insightful stories about Hong Kong throughout the visit. We could visit different areas in 3h (Statue Square, HSBC tower, Standard Charter Tower, Tram, Sheung Wan, Man Mo temple, etc), which was a perfect duration for us to see and learn enough before our next activity. We highly recommend Hong Kong A La Carte for your next trip!

    Mel was terrific. A very nice guy and very knowledgeable. He took us to the Hong Kong behind the tourist spots to give us a flavor of the people and the vitality of the city. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would highly recommend both Hello Hong Kong and Mel. Also took us to a great lunch which we would have never found on our own.

    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 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.

    We had the best time with Sinclair on our private food/walking tour! We met at Hong Kong Station and were whisked away to some incredible food! The first dim sum house was such a fun experience and we had the most amazing custard ball and fried BBQ pork bun. Our favorite stop was the BBQ pork and noodles - so delicious! We had several other food stops and we were completely full even before we finished all the stops ! We also learned a bunch about the neighborhoods we went through, visited Man Mo temple, and took the Star Ferry across the bay to Kowloon. Sinclair was a great guide, so informative, and definitely brought us to the best food we could have imagined! It was such a breeze booking with Hello Hong Kong too. I highly recommend this tour and will be telling everyone I know coming to Hong Kong to book!
