Specially decorated in a rickshaw livery, the "Rickshaw Sightseeing Bus" offers you a convenient hop-on, hop-off service. Like riding on a rickshaw in the old days, you can explore Hong Kong with a 540-degree panoramic view, this time on an air-conditioned double decker, and enjoy a spectacular sight of all the attractions along the way.

Good way to see the city

We always tend to use hop on hop off buses to get an initial impression of a city. This tour did not disappoint and was a reasonable price.

Frequency of the busses is like playing Bingo - maybe you get lucky... Payment only with cash and only by driver, leaflets on routes also only by driver... Their only advantage is the price compared to Big Bus but you shall be very patient.

Hong Kong does not have a shortage of double decker buses - so the need for paying an arm and a leg for the rickshaw sightseeing bus does not suffice. Most of the time this bus is not operated by the open top bus and just a regular double decker bus. At $200 this is an absolute rip off -... More

We tried getting the bus two days in a row and wasted valuable time in HK. The buses would never, ever come. We would wait over an hour whereas other companies (Big Bus HK) would arrive every 30 mins and would have plenty of helpful representatives around. The one time we did have an interaction with a driver, she was... More

We caught this bus for half the journey to the Hong Kong History Museum in Kowloon from Central. If that is all you want to do, then no problem HK$33 (HK$16.50 for seniors). However do not to expect to hear any commentary. We were the only people on the top deck and had to put our ears next to the... More

Read up a few reviews online on how this tour was more of a value for money & decided to do rickshaw bus instead of big bus tours...  Landed in TST & roamed around the whole place as indicated in the website but after 2 hours in the hot & humid weather, couldn't even see one bus on the road...same...

We caught this bus tour because it arrived at our bus-stop before its competitor. The Bus was rather dated, which would not have mattered except the sound system did not work at all. Countering this, the driver was very pleasant and helpful, though he spoke no English (fortunately my wife speaks Cantonese). The driver was very apologetic about the lack... More

If you are not bothered about hopping on/of, having a special night tour and just want a quick orientation of Hong Kong then this is the Rickshaw sightseeing bus is for you. We paid HK$17.40 for a single trip on the "heritage" tour and thoroughly enjoyed the 50 mins we were on it. The buses are slightly dated and the... More

I reccommend this tour (actually both routes) to anybody who has recently moved to HK island and wants to get to know the city fast and without having to worry on how to do it or which stop to get down etc. You can get off on any specialized stop and get on again, the same day. Really fun, go... More

A bit hard to find the bus stop near the islandside Star Ferry pier, but there are signs. We first took the main loop without leaving at intermediate places and then the smaller east side loop, exiting at Race course and continuing on next bus. All three were running about 15 mins late but the promise, one bus per 30... More
