Daniel was our tour guide across rainforest, city, sports, and ocean life. It was a marvellously different experience for our group of 8 - 3 adults, 5 kids ages 11-16. Not for very little kids or people who want to muck around. Perfectly executed with a spacious waiting room and clean toilets. Lockers are provided so you take no light emitting items in including smart watches and phones. Super close to the MTR and the area has dozens of restaurants of all kinds.

We did not have any expectation. We booked an English experience session and Eunice was our guide. She was very experienced as a guide and patiently answered our questions. The tour was an hour long but the time flew by! It felt like 20 minutes. Our party of three each came out with different appreciations and reflections.

We promised not to give too much away, but this is by far the most impactful and memorable “tour” we have taken anywhere in the world.

Highly recommend this tour.

A big thank you to the people who make this experience possible.

At first it's a little scary walking around with no sight, and touching a feeling this that you can't see. But after a while you start to get used to it and it's quite fun and challenging to navigate through the world and identify things. the guide was very friendly and helpful and seemed quite enthusiastic and happy to help us and answer questions.

Having visually impaired tour guides lead you around the city -- so to speak -- in the pitch dark is definitely an original idea and definitely educational. But the #1 tourist attraction in Hong Kong? Come on, people. It's not THAT great. For those unfamiliar with the concept, when you arrive at the entrance to the exhibit, you are handed a white cane and sent inside -- at which point, you can see nothing. Your guide tells you to follow her voice and a maze of walls and rails as she guides you through a series of city environments. You hear sounds that hint at where you are and you feel your way around through different situations. Of course, everyone gets totally lost, crashes into things, and has to help others find there way onto seats and things. The tour is over an hour long but it seems to fly by. And our tour guide was very fun and animated. I think everyone should have to do a workshop like this once in their lives. It's a great way to encourage support among the public for measures to accommodate people with disabilities.

I really don't have any particular criticism of the experience. It's just that, viewing all the ratings here, you'd think this was better than Disneyland, and that's pushing things just a bit. It's a cool, original idea, but it's not on exactly on par with the great museums or historical landmarks of the world. By all means, go. But, after reading all the glowing reviews here, you may want to adjust your expectations down a touch just to make sure you're not disappointed.

I attended DID as part of a company sponsored team building event about a year ago.I have to be honest. I did not like being stuck in the dark for 2 hours. I also did not like having to struggle through so many activities in the dark with the aid of colleagues. I didn't care too much about the team building.

The one thing that really did make an impression on me was how important our basic senses are and especially how much we rely on our sight. Without it I was practically helpless in the dark. The lesson to be learned is that our basic health is our most important blessing, over and above everything else in life. If we have good health there is not much for us to complain about. The host of the event asked me if I would trade my eyesight for a billion dollars. I, of course, said no. She said "you're a billion dollars richer as of today". I would have to agree.

We arrived and were given a key for a free storage locker where we can store our stuff (they ask you to bring around $20HK - you'll know why later). The restroom is not inside the Dialogue in the Dark facility, but it's just around the corner on the same floor of the mall. The restroom was clean and modern (sit down toilets). Our group of 8 was led by an English speaking blind guide (they have set times available for English speaking guides) into 4 to 5 different rooms, one at a time. All the rooms are pitch black, and you are given a guide stick to use to keep from bumping into things. Each room has different things to feel for, like furniture or boxes of items, etc... However, there are not really "many things" to feel for, and they don't give you enough time to explore around the room. The whole thing takes around 1 hr and 15 minutes. When you try to feel with your hands, sometimes you end up feeling "somebody" instead of "something", so we were very glad everyone in the room was a friend. I have touched the guide by accident a couple of times, but luckily, it was only his hand. The rooms are not that big, maybe 12'x12' or so (can't really tell since it was pitch black). It's neat to experience what blind people have to deal with, but I was expecting a more exciting experience and it wasn't. What was really weird was the last room, where they sell candies or sodas. I suppose they were trying to let you experience trying to buy something as a blind person, but the guide didn't really explain that, so at first, we were like, "Huh?" when they told us we were at a bar and asked us what we wanted to buy. The experience was actually o.k., but it wasn't worth the $190HK per adult we paid (we went on a weekend). I probably would have felt better if it cost somewhere around $120HK.

Dear Customer, Thank you so much for your comment about our ticket price. In regards to the price, it had been remained the same since our opening in 2009. However, due to a rapid rise inflation here in Hong Kong, it leaves us no choice but decided to increase the ticket price in July 2013. We understand that this decision might cause inconvenience to some of our customers but we will keep doing our best to provide the best experience, with that we hope to make it worth for the new ticket price. Once again, we truly appreciate for your feedback and thank you for your visit. Ramona Lam Manager, DiD Exhibition Center

I went with my 8 and 12 year old grandchildren who loved it. They said it helps you understand how hard it is for visually impaired. They didn’t stop talking about it. When asked what we should rate it they were shocked and said 5 of course! We had a little trouble finding it. Basically walk through Lau chi Kok park past the library across the road to the mall and up the escalator to the first floor.

It was worth the price and travel.

A different type of tourism that lets you experience Hong Kong having you use all your other senses but the sense of sight. I definitely created a better understanding for us on how the blind have to live their lives in Hong Kong's metropolitan area- the struggle and challenges.

Loved our chatty tour guide who made it all so memorable for us.

What I disliked were the rude comments made by students and youngsters writing in DID's guest comment book.

I would definitely recommend others to taking the tour.

I was with my mother and boyfriend. My mother who is easily scared felt uneasy at first for the whole 30 minutes then started to travel on her own.

Do not bring autistic people in here or people who are claustrophobic. Remember, it's a long tour that have you be in the dark. Prepare your young children a talk before letting them in.

We had an excellent experience and we can't recommend it highly enough. As well as a good dinner in very interesting company you get the opportunity understand how challenging it is to be visually impaired and how we take our sight for granted. We all had a good time and it was an interesting challenge eating in the dark. The food actually tasted better and we were more relaxed. You don't get to know the menu until after the dinner but you can inform them of food preferences and allergies at time of booking. Grace our guide and helper was absolutely wonderful and we had such fun with the other guests on our table. We will be back for the exhibition later in the year and we would also like to experience Christmas in the Dark at some time in the future..
