I found Jamie through Trip Advisor and was impressed from the first time we were in contact by email.
I used Jamie twice during my stay in Hong Kong, once for an evening tour and once for a morning tour.
Jamie is a great character, full of life and interesting stories. Maybe it helped that we are both from Yorkshire!!
I saw so much in my two 1/2 day tours, including the peak at night (and Jamie's secret spot away from the mass crowds), the lobbies of the Pennisula and Mandarin Oriental hotels, Temple Street night market and the ladies that frequent it! You just couldn't get more opposite sights in Hong Kong.....Star Ferry ride. Can't believe we fit all this in 4 1/2 hours!
On my day tour we went to a temple in Kowloon. It was fascinating to watch all the mainland Chinese tourists and their rituals. I also found out I am very lucky, being born in 1968
Then we went to Stanley on the bus, which was such a contrast from Central Hong Kong, quieter with beaches. We had a nice cream and walked along the boardwalk, it was almost like being in England! I met a couple of great kids on the bus, who amused me and saw some beautiful houses. I know I would never have come down to Stanley on my own. There is much more to it than just the market!
I would definitely recommend Jamie. You will see and learn so much from him. He also emailed me suggestions for the free day I had, which helped me to decide where to go! You wouldn't get service like this from a bus company tour!

I consider myself very lucky that I get to show people around this incredible city even more so when I can every now and then meet people from Yorkshire / my home town! gives me a chance to lapse back into Yorkshire speak!
I very much appreciate the great review and it was lovely spending the time with you and showing you the sights!
