    What to Expect
    How does it work? Book this meet-up with a

    Hong Konger and we will contact you within 24-hours to ask you questions about your preferences and interests. You will be matched with a like-minded and vetted local host who knows the city intimately and shares your interests. A personalized itinerary will be built just for you. Please note that this will be outlined but flexible. Experiences can range from the sharing of advice over a coffee, to the discovery of a small neighborhood, or the exploration of Hong Kong as a whole.

    Your local host will show you the places and things that make Hong Kong unique. Replicate the experience of spending time in a city with a friend who lives there as the best travel moments come from going beneath the surface of a destination and discovering it through local lens. A meeting point and time will be arranged with your host in the most convenient place for you. During the exploration, if you feel like changing direction, or if your local host believes that you'd enjoy a sight or different experience, he/she will suggest and discuss with you changes to the itinerary.

    Enjoy discovering amazing spots in Hong Kong that are lesser-known to the crowd but loved by locals. The day will revolve around your wishes so enjoy your private tour and let your local show you the Hong Kong you will love.
    • See the hidden gems of the city and places only locals know about

    • If it's not your first visit to the city, you might prefer exploring off the beaten path spots, through the eyes of a local host
    • Discover this beautiful city your way

    I had a great time with my local tour guide. I sent some sights that I wanted to see to the guide in advance, and he mapped out our time together. He told my the ins and outs of the area, and it really felt like an immersive experience. I would recommend this tour highly!

    Lulu was perfect for the three of us. She made sure we saw everything on our “wish list” plus interesting local venues as well. She allowed us as much time as we liked and she was such an interesting guide. But the best thing she did for us was to help us acquire needed clothes
