“Great way to see Hong Kong”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

We bought a two day ticket which gives you three different bus tours, access to the Tram, a Harbour Cruise, access to the markets and a Sampan ride. Excellent value. Put it on your to do list.

“Well worth the money.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

I had a great time seeing most of the HK sights.
I first took the Green bus which took in the Tram ride then
The Stanley markets plus lots more. Very informative narrators on all trips. A free ticket on the Star Ferry is included as is a Junk ride and a ticket to the Maritime Museum.
The red trip took me through the main streets of HK. I highly recommend this day

“Well worth the money, but limited stops with no bus stop signs!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Had a great time in HK and used the bus for two of those days. Staying on HK island, we used the red line first, going up the peak (missing the long line by using the fast pass offered to bus ticket holders). The ticket also gets you to the top, offering 360* views ... Magnificent. We then joined night tour at the peak (little wait but easier than going on) and went over to Kowloon. Again, interesting .. Lights are everywhere! Not so impressed with HK harbour night show, thought it was a little 'tired' and not as many lasers as promised.
Next day, picked up the red again but swapped to green to do Stanley (have to do market) but we decided to skip sampan to get back to catch star ferry across to pick up blue tour ... And then dropping off to do get markets.
My only 'moans' .. I have been on hop on buses with funny commentary ... Much more exiting than just facts! And I thought there were only a limited amount of stops .. We had to use the tram to take us to the meeting point .. And lastly - please note! There are very few bus stop signs .. Read the pick up details on the map and then keep a good eye out for the buses - then wave them down.
Worth buying the ticket .. We did deluxe two day with night tour, booked on line before leaving home.

“Good way to discover city, however poor commentary and difficult to find stops”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We had a 48 hour day and night ticket when visiting Hong Kong.

Having done quite some Big Bus tours before (London, Dubai, Abu Dhabi), we were quite surprised about the HK tour.

Commentary was pretty poor. Far too many breaks and music.

Also quite difficult too find the bus stops.

Would not use them in HK again.

“Big Bus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Great way to see the sites to plan what you would like to see. 24 hour pass for $50 allows you to jump on and off throughout the city and countryside. Also comes with two free ferry rides.
