My husband and I went on the firefly hike in Hong Kong Geopark on Saturday. It was a lovely group of people and although a challenging hike, it was something that I am glad we have experienced. Seeing the fireflies, toads and even a snake! I would definitely recommend this but make sure you a prepared. Wear sensible walking shoes... More

Hong Kong is a concrete jungle, we rarely walking in nature. Therefore I think it is a good tour for Hong Kongers to have a deeper understanding on our motherland, though the guide is a foreigner. I really appreciate your efforts.

It was perhaps one of the best things to do in HK. It was the best way to see what the HK countryside has to offer. Wouter is knowledgeable and it was a very lovely walk. We were very lucky to see a great number of fireflies and were truly astounded by the beauty of HK countryside. Wouter also found... More

I went on the all day tour 'Hexagonal Columns' - it was great. We were a party of 7 - all different nationalities. We explored the Geopark and cave, then went across country to a gorgeous beach and the to a temple. Great lunch in a little village and then collected by a sampan for a fascinating tour of the...

Me and my friends are glad to have made the fireflies sighting tour with Wouter as he was an experienced and knowledgeable guide who took us on a well-explored and researched path for fireflies. He was eager to share anything from insects to hiking in HK... Just open up and you will learn a lot. We look forward to going... More

I joined Wouter's Plover Cove hike and it was definitely one of the best things from my trip to Hong Kong. He definitely planned it very well: beautiful and diverse scenery, casual to challenging parts during the hike, and a lot of historical and geological things to see! Make sure to join in on any of Wouter's outings as they... More

I joined the fireflies-watching tour in Tai Po Kau last evening and it was absolutely gorgeous. We had 12 people in the group, which was perfect. At one point there were lots of group visitors and they were very noisy but Wouter took us to more secluded spots so we had those places for ourselves. It wasn't pitch black because... More

Hong Kong's countryside, rarely mentioned in the travel brochures and almost totally ignored by the tourist promotion types, is an extraordinary and diverse mix. Lantau's 'Scottish' mountains brood over valleys with jungles as dense as any in Southeast Asia, while remote islands nestling up to China are rarely more than an hour or so by ferry away from the high-rises...
