Specially decorated in a rickshaw livery, the "Rickshaw Sightseeing Bus" offers you a convenient hop-on, hop-off service. Like riding on a rickshaw in the old days, you can explore Hong Kong with a 540-degree panoramic view, this time on an air-conditioned double decker, and enjoy a spectacular sight of all the attractions along the way.

Thought it would be a good idea to hear and see Hong Kong! No air conditioning (broken) no ear phones... Just streets, disappointed to say the least! Waste of $400 .. Wasted BIG BUS all the way

Don't waste your time and money. The frequency of the buses are not tourist friendly and the drivers don't speak english as well. At one of the stops the driver didn't stop the bus to pick us up. You can might as well go on your own in HK than taking these buses.

Being tourists, we were expecting that this bus tour will help us appreciate Hong Kong more but unfortunately it was not what we expected. No commentaries in English, the tv monitor spoke Chinese and there was no one to guide us. There were only a few of us who availed of the tour.

We caught the bus at Mody Road on the Kowloon side - the last stop before the bus descended into the tunnel to connect to Hong Kong Island. The bus was EMPTY and the driver spoke no English! he wasn't even able to take our money - thank heavens for that. We quickly learned that there was no commentary -... More

Worst hop on hop off bus we've ever encountered. No commentary, just notice of next stop. Cantonese version is loud enough but the English version is impossible to hear. At Silvercord stop we waved at the driver but she ignored us and drove past in the middle lane - made no attempt to pull over into the bus lane. We... More

This is the worst tour bus I have ever been on. It was on a Sunday and the bus was racing through the city. The sound was a mix between Chinese and English but most of the trip the comment was that 'now approaching next stop' honestly I could not care less about what the next stop would be!!! The... More

This was unbelievably dreadful. We couldn't hear the commentary, the bus was either so fast we had no time to view/photograph the sights, or stuck in traffic jams for 20 minutes not moving at all. When we tried to "hop off" the driver wouldn't stop. Eventually we persuaded him to stop and we left the tour - we'd been on... More

I've travelled on several hop-on hop-off bus tours in various countries and this by far was the most disappointing. We started the day with a fantastic android phone that was supplied to all guests staying at their hotel, and it indicated "live times" in which the Rickshaw bus would stop and where. We arrived well within the time and stood... More
