Nice tour. An hour cruise on the harbor, with dinner at the Peak and a chance to get your photos of the Hong Kong lights. The evening was rounded off with a trip to the night market on Kowloon. The tour guide was friendly and informative and everything was on time. A good choice if you need to squeeze in a few tourist stops in a short time. You also have the opportunity to meet other travelers.
We pre booked this trip so weather was an unfortunate downer. Picked up from hotel foyer, a little late but street were busy and waiting for other guests who were late. Transfer to Sanpan for cruise round harbour, drinks were free and available however weather was very poor and trip round harbour was choppy and very wet, cover over passengers was good but thick plastic had to be lowered which stopped view. Transfer to Victoria peak onboard a minibus, again weather closed in and nothing could be seen. Burger type dinner in bubagump was of good burger style dinner and passenger company was good. Dinner was a bit rushed but guide arranged an extra 20 mins before returning to hotel. Pre booking this would have been excellent if only the weather could be arranged as it was it was a disappointment but this is not the organisers fault. The organisation was good ,we did not get a chance to experience it.
This was a great tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. The food at Bubba Gumps was delicious and very filling. Im giving it 4 stars as the only thing to change is the order of events. It would have been better to have dinner first, then cruise the harbour to enjoy the brilliant lights of the skyline and then head to the night market. The pier where the cruise departs/returns is a 5 minute drive to the night market. After the cruise and long drive to and from Victoria peak, there wasnt very much time to spend at the market and most of the guests seemed quite tired.
This was a great experience with exceptional visibilty for Hong Kong. The skies cleared and we had a marvelous sunset on the harbour. The boat trip was ok but the bartender must have had a miserable day because he wasn't the life of the party for our trip. Very gruff!
The guide was very friendly and helpful, even organising a visit to a rooftop bar for us later that night. She had a very good sense of humour which goes a long way on such a trip. Her insights into HK lifestyles was informative as was her knowledge of the history of the island.
Dinner at Bubba Gumps was a real surprise. The food was excellent and there was plenty of it. Some of the guests came away with doggie bags the ribs were something to behold.
The tour of Temple Street was a bit disappointing because we had done it a number of times previously, but we knew beforehand that this was on the itinerary, so can't complain too much.
