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.

This is the worst tour bus I have ever been on. It was on a Sunday and the bus was racing through the city. The sound was a mix between Chinese and English but most of the trip the comment was that 'now approaching next stop' honestly I could not care less about what the next stop would be!!! The... More

This was unbelievably dreadful. We couldn't hear the commentary, the bus was either so fast we had no time to view/photograph the sights, or stuck in traffic jams for 20 minutes not moving at all. When we tried to "hop off" the driver wouldn't stop. Eventually we persuaded him to stop and we left the tour - we'd been on... More

I've travelled on several hop-on hop-off bus tours in various countries and this by far was the most disappointing. We started the day with a fantastic android phone that was supplied to all guests staying at their hotel, and it indicated "live times" in which the Rickshaw bus would stop and where. We arrived well within the time and stood... More

We used this bus for two days, great being able to hop on and off when you like! We managed to see so many areas of HK in such a short space of time and also choose places to go back to and explore in more depth on another day. Great way to get an overview of the city without... More

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
