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...more
In a nutshell the main issues we gas:
- The busses were never on time
- The 'last bus' according to schedule turned out to be 20 minutes earlier checking the arrival times online. Of course we missed it
- Two out of two times...More
The service is very poor! Fast, crazy and dangerous driving! You cannot see anything as they move so fast! They use old and dirty bus with poor condition! The Bus driver's English is poor! No headset with English language is provided! The Big Bus is...More
i boarded H1A with my friend, and it was so fun, cheap,fun,and attractive, I really enjoyed this ride, we boarded H2S on new year's eve, it was so full, but so fun, only disadvantage is that people are noisy, but, it's definitely recommended. And as...More
Lucky we had received a free ticket otherwise it wasn't worth the price. You need to take the full tour - you can't get on/off as you would like to. The Audio system was out of sync as to where you were during the tour....More
We took the rickshaw on off bus in Hong Kong. First of all no one spoke English. Secondly there were no brochures. Thirdly we were dropped off on the other island Kalown without any indication as to how to get back. The information was nonexistent...More
We bought a 24 hour ticket & received an additional 24 hours free so it was much cheaper then the Big Bus tours and did what we wanted as an overview of the 2 islands.
We walked to the terminus by Star Ferry & stayed...More
Used this hop on hop off instead of our preferred option for a change. Sat upstairs to get the better views from the open top. Speakers weren’t working so couldn’t hear the commentary. Some of the stops weren’t near what they were adverting. The WiFi...More
The routes are quite good, giving you and overall look of Hong Kong and Kowloon; however the audio was for the whole bus and sometimes with the external noise (traffic and people) it was quite hard to hear what the audio was saying. Apart from...More
The bus, guides and prices were all very good and much cheaper than the rival companies. Slightly confusing options on the website and what the various tickets meant and the availability of the various buses at certain times. All in all though a good way...More
Having compared prices of 3 bus operators online, we opted to get the first Rickshaw Bus from Central at 10 o'clock and took the excellent Star Ferry from TST with a view to returning by bus. 2 buses were ready well before 0920 but we...More
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
We tried a newly operated open top sightseeing bus in Hong Hong yesterday, the Rickshaw sightseeing bus. It is completely a waste of money and time, we waited 45 mins for the bus at Star Ferry and paid $200 for 4 people (2 are our guest from Holland), we hopped off at Man Mo Temple and did some sightseeing before trying to hop back on the bus, we waited another 40 mins and the bus never come so we took a taxi instead to our next destination, the old police station. Our guests really think it...More

6 hours in Hong Kong - Lantau ( Big Buddha) or Rickshaw bus (0 Replies)
I'm going to arrive at HK airport at 13:45 and my next flight is scheduled to 22:30. I have about 6 hours staying in HK. I know this topic has already been discussed and I've done my homework but I haven't found the following options : going to see the Big Buddha of Lantau or taking a sightseeing hop on hop off bus ( Rickshaw Sightseeing Bus). What would you suggest? Any help would be much appreciated.
