Took the Hong Kong Island tour and enjoyed it immensely. We were initially concerned with the traffic as the tour immediately got caught up in a jam as we approached a toll booth. However, all went OK, and the Sampam ride was very enjoyable. Second stop was the jewelry manufacturer (which my wife took full advantage of). The parts I enjoyed the most was the ride around the island, the view from Victoria Peak, and the water views. Although I’m not normally a
Shuman was a wonderful guide. We had a nice small group, but wanted to see Hong Kong. The stop at the jewelry shop left us frustrated that we were held hostage to listen to a presentation and ushered into a showroom to buy stuff. We saw other tour groups from a cruise ship there too. Cut this part out and allow more time for the guest to shop and see the sights of the city.
On August 31 we had a wonderful tour of Shanghai. Our tour guide was Lily. She is a delight! She is extremely knowledgable and thorough. Lily is extremely flexible and her commentary throughout the tour was extremely interesting. Her's was the best tour of the four we took during our trip. If you are going to take a tour in Shanghai, my wife and I urge you to seek her out. You won't be disappointed!

Hong Kong was a very delightful experience. Notably because we had not traveled to this part of the world before. Our excursion was on the Tramway ascending to the sky and reaching a wonderful area to see a larger than life Budha. To heighten the experience we did see two bulls searching for food in a crowd.
I took this tour a shore excursion instead of the one offered by my cruise line. I booked on ship and was quite satisfied. They picked up at the cruise terminal on time and he was able to get all off us out in a timely fashion. Loved the great photo ops while on the sampan and at Victoria Peak. Just did not like some of the shopping location ladies market too crowded and hard to find guide and gem store presentation first thing. Other then that I would highly recommend tour as these were some of the best pictures and moments in Hong Kong.
