Description: My name is Jacky I offer private tour services in both Hong Kong and...
My name is Jacky I offer private tour services in both Hong Kong and Macau.Did you always wish you had a local friend to take you around when you travel?Is communication a problem for you when you tour in Asia?Have always fascinated about the rich cultures of Hong Kong and Macau?Want to swift around like a local?I've been a tourist to other countries as well, so I understand the needs of being in another place unfamiliar to me. I want to be safe and I don't want to have to worry. Therefore, it's very important to me that my tour provides you with a no worries, safe and secure environment.I have lived in both cities of Hong Kong and Macau. My friends calls me a street sider as I always love to explore and the small details of inner city living. I think this has been a habit of mine and has had something to do with growing up in the city of Melbourne, where little lanes corners will find yourself in a different world. I grew up in Australia through my teenage and early twenties life and now settles myself in here in Hong Kong. I have had 10 years of hospitality experience, where I learnt a lot about how tourists are and their needs and wants. I am young, knowledgable, local and most importantly I understand the differences between western and local cultures.As a guide, I advocate Reliability, Responsibility and Resourcefulness.Yet, I'm also a believer in tailored service. I believe all tours shall be different as everybody's needs and wants are different. It will be fun showing you the excitements of Hong Kong and Macau at the same time learn a little about your country and it's cultures too. This life is a learning experience. It goes by the saying, learn a little, give a little. So I'm learning each day to be a better guide so that I can give you a memorable experience being on tour with me.I'm very flexible and understand your needs so that you can truly enjoy your visit/vacation/holiday/getaway or however you would want to name it. I'm easy to talk to and I'm friendly too. With me you can enjoy, relax and chit chat, because apart from being your tour guide, I'm also your friend!I am a food enthusiast! If you are looking for a culinary experience, just count on me. Tell me what your likes and dislikes are of food, I'll bring you to the food that suit your needs. There's just too much good food to choose from that I myself can't get enough of! Hong Kong, Asia's world city has it all and I'll gladly show you.I have had friend's visits from overseas and I had previously organized private, authentic and original tours to great places. My goal is to take you off the beaten track to locations where you would never come on your own. To show and practice the local traditions and explore the streets of Hong Kong.For city tours in I always recommend to use public transport. This is a fun experience and gives the best feel and maneuverability of the city. For trips out of the city I will arrange a VIP van, it comes with upgraded interior and comfortable leather seats.If you have special wishes please let me know. Making tailor made tours to match with your personal interests is what I do best. We provide customized tour guide services for Hong Kong and Macau City tours, urban adventures, casino hopping, you name it... We provide tailor made services that suit your own personal need. Because we know everybody is different. Charged per tour (with minimum of 6 hours) Flexible hours. Can facilitate maximum group of 10 people.hongkongmacautourguidegoogle mail

We did 2 tours with Jacky -- a night market tour and day tour to Macau. As we had covered a number of the markets earlier in the day with another guide, Jacky was flexible with our night tour and took us to areas we had not already visited as well as viewing the streets all lit up at night....

DISCLAIMER: we were negligent in thoroughly reviewing the contract and did not realize the payment currency stated in the contract was USD, not HKD, thus resulting in a radically higher fee than anticipated. This oversight was completely our fault and has no influence or bearing on the experience that ruined our very short visit to Hong Kong. If you are... More

Jacky was the perfect guide to show us the real Hong Kong. Four adults and three kids learnt how to get around Hong Kong and saw some amazing behind the scenes action. We will never forget some of the food market stalls around Wan Chai nor morning tea at a local diner and then lunch at a local restaurant. We... More

We had a great week with Jacky! He met us at our hotel and showed us all around HK. We did 3 different tours with him and all were great! We went well beyond the contracted hours for the tours each time. You tour like a local and he customized it for us. When we did a different tour with... More

Jacky gave us a very good tour in Hong Kong. If you want to go past the tourist spots, Jacky is the person to hire. He speaks great English and can explain any questions you may have.

We have just spent 5 days in Honk Kong and we were keen to see Macau, but we could only allocate one day for the tour. After much research we decided on a full day tour with Jacky Wong and I must say we weren't disappointed. Let me begin by saying that if you're after a cheap quick and 'dirty'... More

It was my first time in HK and I had 2 days to see the sites. To maximize my experience, I signed up for a 1/2 day tour with Jacky. The tour was perfect -- I saw the bigger tourist sites, saw things only a local would know about and learned about HK history and culture. In fact, the tour... More

My wife and I spent 3 great days (actually 2 days and one night) with Jacky. He covered all of the places we wanted to see and then added in all of the things he thought we should see. He allowed us to also become totally comfortable in managing our way around Hong Kong. We avoided the crowds and got... More

Home to every market, restaurant and shopping arcade imaginable, Mong Kok is the one-stop shop to satisfy all your shopping needs. Dust off your finest negotiation skills and dive into the bartering frenzy.
