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

I have used Rickshaw Bus Tours in Hong Kong once and it is a less expensive option to the Big Bus hop-on hop-off tour however you do get less inclusions. There are two routes on offer and I guess one bonus is that you could pay using your Octopus Card (Hong Kongs smartcard travel pass). Again you can get off... More

The tour round Hong Kong cost us HK$17.40, and you get what you pay for, a breakneck dash round Hong Kong, for our price there was no getting on and off, it was just the ride, there was no commentary, no information as to where we were, but it was an entertaining ire nonetheless! The alternative bus too company has... More

This is a cheap hop on and off bus. Sometimes the audio works and sometimes it does not. Sometimes the drivers forget to actually stop so there is no chance of hopping off so remember if you want to get off at a spot let the driver know in advance. In some ways our experience was so bad it was... More

Which aint much! I paid my HK$50 for the two tours Heritage & Modern and boarded the rather gloomy, rather grimy bus. I chose to sit downstairs as it was too hot to sit on the open top deck. I found the drivers of both tours to be surly and rude, simply looking away when I asked a simple question... More

This a much cheaper version of the The Big Bus Tours which depart nearby. The tour is great for those wanting a quick (approx 1hr) loop of the Heritage side of Hong Kong. Hard to hear the commentary on the upper deck due to traffic, no headphones available but for HK50 day pass it still is good value. Big downside... More

Stay away from aircon water drippings near the buildings. Dont ride during rush hours. A must for tourists though time consuming.

Drivers not on time. I had to wait 90 min to get a ride on one of the stops where a bus should come every 30 min. Drivers drive recklessly on narrow curved roads. Drivers do not speak English and rude. They can not give simple directions to major attractions. Video play tv instead of tourist info. Ovsrall poor service.
