The general consensus is you don't need an agency to arrange for hotel pick up. It is quite easy, simple, straight forward to use public transportation including taxi to go from the airport to your hotel, usually at a substantial saving compared to these arranged pick-ups.

Hi, Thanks for your reply. But what if my travel partners inclusive of young kids of age 5 and elderly of 70. Will pick up fr hotel to destination and other places would help? If yes, do you have any recommendations?

I agree. In some cities, tour guides can be quite useful. However, HK is ok to explore and sightsee on your own.

There is a Top Question (FAQ) - [Should I join a city tour?] with additional past discussions that would be worth reading over.

Have a nice time researching Hong Kong and hope you enjoy your visit to the city.
