While we were given a two day pass for the cost of one day (business was seriously down because of the corona virus scare and the demonstrations), we only used one of the days.

But it was of the downtown core and did give us an overview of the city and the multiple businesses that reside in its center.

Everyone was wearing masks, so it put a damper on our normal explorations. Even with that, we were happy we went for the one day (we were leaving the next day and would be busy packing, etc).

I love the Big Bus Company - my 'go to' place when I am in a strange city to get a feel for the place. We booked a 48 hour ticket which we got for a 50% seasonal reduction (watch out for promotions, they are worth having). There are three routes, there is one which takes you out to Stanley, Aberdeen Harbour, Repulse Bay, another one through the Financial District and another route through Kowloon.. There are a lot of stops to hop off to go for a walk. If you get off at Aberdeen Harbour, watch out for their sampan to take you round the harbour. We also had a free ticket to Sky 100, the tallest building in Hongkong. There were lots of freebies included, you are spoilt for choice: Sky 100 (you would pay app HK $ 180 for the ticket), two return tickets on the star ferry, reduced coffee in Starbucks near the Star Ferry, reduced entrance fees. It's a great way to experience HK at your own pace.

What a great way to spend a 15 hour lay over in Hong Kong!
We stopped in Hong Kong on our way to Vietnam. And I'm so glad that we did.
Hong Kong is such an awesome place, even from the little bit that I experienced (can't wait to come and visit Hong Kong specifically) we did the one tours of the Old Town Central tour with a Peak Tram Sky Pass.
It was really a great way to be able to explore and learn about the city. The audio is very detailed and informative and the stops are awesome!

Luckily the Big Bus Sightseeing starting point is right by the IFC Mall which is connected to the International airport by train, so it makes it the perfect activity to do, and the easiest way to explore a city you haven't really done much research on.

Definitely worth doing while in Hong Kong, especially during a long lay over from the airport.

Bought a classic one day ticket for 2 of us. Used the red line, in and around Hong Kong first of all, started at the Pier area and sat on it all the way round. Commentary on ear phones worked fine, limited facts and a lot of repetitive music. The bus goes fast when it can and is very slow around the central area.
Got off at the pier to be told the next green line bus (Stanley & Repulse Bay) was 1/2 hour away. Had a coffee and returned to be told it wasn’t for another hour as there was a procession. So we got a taxi out to Repulse Bay, didn’t see any processions! Had a lovely lunch and waited for over an hour at the stop for the bus to arrive. Had downloaded the app which is supposed to show where the buses are. Not working. Had 3 increasingly irritating phone calls with control asking where the bus was. Eventually it arrived. The problem is there is no competition. So do it if you want, just don’t get off, you might have a long wait.
My complaint was deal with by a sudden inability to understand English!

We booked the tour to Aberdeen and the Hong Kong Island route. From the upper deck you have a good view and can do sightseeing in comfort. Especially the tour to Aberdeen was a positive surprise. Sandy beach and lots of green. Comfortable boarding point at the Ferry Terminal. During our visit we were practically the only guests and due to the protests unfortunately not all tours were carried out for safety reasons.

We did red line then green then across harbour to blue line - great way to get an overview in one day.
Would say relative to others the commentary was bit sparse could have had more history and details. Also at 45 minutes apart the bus frequency would be better more often.
But overall highly recommended

Always a great way to find your beatings when in a new city. Bought the 24 hr ticket that was perfectly timed over 2 days. Spent the first day exploring Hong Kong Island, day 2 was spent wandering around Stanley market( an absolute must when in Hong Hong.

Unfortunately the Kowloon route was suspended at the time of our trip.

I did the two-day Hop On Hop Off package including visits to the the Victoria Peak on Hong Kong island and the Sky100 Observation Deck in Kowloon, for 679 Hong Kong Dollars or about 80 euros all-in. For me, it was a great and exciting way to rediscover Hong Kong, after not being here for more than 11 years.

Like many city tour buses, this is a familiar service and offered well organised and convenient routes. Its main hub at Pier 7 on the harbour front was also a quick stroll for us from our hotel and there are two routes (HK Island Tour and Aberdeen & Stanley Tour) that start and finish here. The third route on Kowloon can also be reached via the ferry boats at this pier also.

I bought our Deluxe tickets (there are cheaper Classic and Premium options also) from the GetYourGuide: Tour & Tickets app which offers cheaper deals than the sales people at the Pier.

Deluxe tickets give you 48 hours hop-on-hop-off on all three routes, ferry tickets to Kowloon for two return trips, Night tour of Kowloon, Walking tour of Hong Kong, Sampan trip around Aberdeen floating village and an option to either go up Victoria Peak or the observation deck at the ICC building on Kowloon. We paid £64 (HKD624) per person on the app as opposed to HGD730.

We used it solidly for two days and got a brilliant perspective of the whole place and saw far more than we've seen on previous visits.

My only criticism would be the night tour where the driver was pretty hopeless and drove past us at the stop, only finally stopping at a red light and letting us on board in the road as we ran after him!

Overall, great value and worth it.
