New York City, New York1 contribution
Simon is a young, talkative, energetic host and kept my buddy Dave and I entertained for a half day plus evening tour. We booked at the last minute (my m.o.) and met up at a Dim Sum restaurant at aboout 1 pm to eat and discuss our expectations for the day. We walked up and down hills and stairs all over Hong Kong island visiting shops, markets, parks and temples. Simon kept us filled with historical and current information and the day flew by. We extended into evening and after an hour or so break for checkin and cleanup headed out for food and drink sampling across the bay in Kowloon (Tsim Sha Tsui) followed by late night hijinks in Lan Kwai Fong & Soho. The Hong Kong skyline is spectacular at night and we were in rooftop bars as well as riding the Star Ferry to see it up close. We also recieved plenty of recommendations of things to do and see for the next 2 days that made for a fun and fulfilling weekend. Simon can also lead recreational activites which is a big plus if you've got the time and interest.…

Hi Mitch, Thank you for your great review! So glad that you and Dave had a great time on the tour and it was a pleasure to meet the two of you. Hope you survived the blizzard in New York and are happily settling into your new life out there. You've actually written this lovely review on the 852Rush page rather than the 852Tour page on tripadvisor (for which is it more relevant). It would be awesome if you could transfer it over to the 852Tour page or simply duplicate it there. Many thanks in advance. Wishing you all the best in 2014 which is soon to be the year of the horse!
