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

Jacky met us at our hotel in Kowloon side and we had a discussion about what we were interested in seeing. For us - one of the most interesting aspects of the day was using local transit! We were off to the Star Ferry for a "cruise" across the harbour and we then took a local bus to The Peak.... More

We were collected from our hotel and taken on a six hour walking journey being amazed, and entertained at every corner. We experienced every mode of transportation that Hong Kong offers, saw the old and the new, tasted the... More

My wife and I took a tour with Jacky in Hong Kong in order to better understand the city and get the most out of our stay there. Jacky was outstanding in his orientation of the city, transportation, food, restaurants and neighborhoods. In a short time we had the knowledge to be able to go out on our own and... More

We were a family of six (with 2 kids, aged 9 and 12, and 2 seniors) visiting Hong Kong and Macau. We were reasonably familiar with Hong Kong but not with Macau. So with our past good experience with private tours in France, we decided to book a tour with Jacky after reading the good reviews on TA. Jacky met... More

Jacky showed us the local's view of HK -- we walked, rode a bus, took the subway, and didn't wait in line at any crowded tourist attractions. The tour was a nice mix of local markets, a temple, exotic food stores, bakery items, dim sum lunch, and his take on local culture and attitudes. Jacky's English is very easy to... More

We had a full-day layover in Hong Kong, so made reservations for Jacky's all day tour, and were really, really glad we did! He's a native to Hong Kong; young and energetic. He helped us, by email, before the tour as to where to leave our carry-on baggage, and where to meet at the airport. He converted our dollars to... More

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....

Staying in Mong Kok

Neighborhood Profile
Mong Kok
It’s one of the highest density districts in the world, so come to Mong Kok prepared for action. 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. Similar retailers will conveniently congregate in the same area forming easy to remember references such as “flower street” and “sneakers street.” Here you will also find various local delicacies being served at street snack shops or hole-in-the-wall restaurants. One reliable rule of thumb: the smaller the place, the better the food.
