“Great Hong Kong Tour”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

We had never booked a private tour before and were a bit apprehensive about it, but Jamie was great. We didn't know what we wanted to see and we only had one day, so Jamie was able to get us from place to place easily and show us the sites. He even took us to a local restaurant for lunch that he had been going to for 20 years (we highly recommend you go to this local resturant instead of the more Americanized restaurant option).

Hi Laura B

Thanks ever so much for the great review, much appreciated.

As you only had the day it was pretty intense but we covered a lot of ground and I am glad you enjoyed it.

Hope to see you again!

Thanks

“Jamie Lloyd knows Hong Kong!”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

My wife and I had made arrangements to spend the day with Jamie Lloyd, J3 Tours Hong Kong, when we were in town on, Saturday, 17 November. We had corresponded with him prior to our arrival in HKG regarding sites we would like to visit that day. I had been to HKG about 20 years ago on business but did not have the opportunity to “be a tourist”

Everyone raves about the tours by Jamie and we are in total agreement! We had a magnificent day!

The next day, Sunday, we would be on our own to tour and discussed our ideas with Jamie. He e-mailed to us that Saturday evening with detailed instructions, including photos, on how to reach the sites we were planning to visit on our own. The instructions were spot on. We highly recommend J3 Tours.

It is always nice to meet returning visitors to Hong Kong and yes part of what I do is to make sure you enjoy Hong Kong after our tour by providing detailed step by step instructions on how to visit and make the most of other attractions.

I appreciate the review and all the best

Thanks

“Excellent private tour!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We spent a day with Jamie and the beautiful Hong Kong. All the positive reviews below are true, so I won't go over everything again. If you're in HK and want an excellent private tour, Jamie is your man.

He has exceptional HK skyline viewing spot ;-)

Would highly recommend his services!

“Time and money well spent”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

We had a great time with Jamie. He has a wealth of knowledge about Hong Kong and a great sense of humor. He took us to very interesting places and we learned a lot about Hong Kong culture. He was responsive and easy to deal with, and gave us lots of very specific extra info as follow up,

“Hong Kong Overview”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

My husband and I were in transit from Seattle to Kathmandu, and had a one day layover in Hong Kong. Some friends had recommended Tours by Locals, which led us to Jamie and his tour of the city. Jamie took us several interesting places, and had extensive knowledge of the area. We visited temples and gardens, learned about the chinese culture both in Hong Kong and in mainland China, and ended the day with a yummy lunch at a local restaurant. Jamie took excellent care of us and we enjoyed his sense of humor. And he gets around by foot or mass transit - an terrific way to see a city.

Hi Nyarnp

Thank you for your very generous review, good to see you got back in one piece from your Mountain Trek..

Whilst I do walking tours it is not all walking, we do use public transport extensively which allows to cover a lot of ground!

I am glad you enjoyed your tour and thanks again
