Jamie's tour was without a doubt the highlight of my Hong Kong trip! I actually wish that I could have spent my whole trip on one of his tours. I heard about Jamie's tours through trip advisor and am so glad that I did - it really is easy to see how he has won awards for his tours! Jamie is full of knowledge and shares information that you just wouldn't get on a bus tour. He is also super friendly and gave me advice on what to see during the rest of my trip prior to the tour which was much appreciated (his website is also full of handy tips). I really loved that I could choose the places that I wanted to go to and loved seeing places that were a little off the normal tourist path. I enjoyed my tour so much that the time just flew by, yet nothing on the tour felt rushed and I could spend as little or as long as I wanted at places. You will not regret booking one of Jamie's tours and I would definantly do it again should I visit Hong Kong again. Thanks Jamie!

Thanks for this wonderful experience. Loved the Nunnery, although it was raining, it was still amazing, even got to see a nun! Then on to the Buda Temple, happy that we all left there "lucky"!
Jamie took us to an amazing restaurant for lunch, and then took the ferry to Hong Kong Island where we went up to the Peak. What a breathtaking view! Can't wait to see all those pictures.
Jamie is a wealth of information and really shows you a different way to visit Hong Kong.
We highly recommend Jamie, you will not be disappointed, we weren't.

Hi Norma W

It was a real pleasure to meet the both of you, my first people from St. Maartens!! and I am so happy that despite the rain we still managed that view on the Peak.

I very much appreciate your kind comments and thanks for the review

Could not have asked for a better guide to Hong Kong. It is not just the sights that he shows you (including the breathtaking walk at the top of the Peaks where incredibly we seemed to be by ourselves for a good part part of the walk!); it is the insights into what it is like to live in this exciting city that he conveys so well thanks in great part to his 30 plus years of living in HK. All this conveyed with a wonderfully dry sense of humor which only an Englishman can provide. My 19 year old son who is at the best of times hard to impress was bowled over and asked whether we could have another tour with him the next day (which we would have done if only we had an extra day in HK!). Highly recommended!

True to form, with less than 24 hours' notice my colleague and I decided to go to Hong Kong on a Saturday and found Jamie's top rating on this site very impressive. He is all that and more in person! We left the destinations up to him, finding him a quick study of what we would enjoy. It was great...more like spending the day with a familiar friend who loves showing off his worldclass hometown. Jamie was meant to be a tour guide. I recommended him to a well-traveled colleague for the very next weekend and she was equally as pleased with his all-day tour. Jamie, can we take you with us everywhere we go in the future??

Hi Bluedog 723

I do take last minute bookings (I do get bookings 24 hours before the day of the tour and even on the day of the requested tour) and am happy to do so and it was so nice to meet you both...

I very much appreciate your kind comments and thank you so much...

If you are ever in Hong Kong again please do contact me

thanks again to you both

We were lucky enough to get Jamie at very short notice and our tour with him was one of the highlights of our trip to Hong Kong.

As his bio says, Jamie has lived in Hong Kong for a long time. More importantly he keeps himself informed of all of the comings and goings in Hong Kong and was happy to answer any question we could think of.

A good tip is to let him know where you are thinking of going on the rest of your trip because he has plenty of tips that will make your time more enjoyable because he has either saved you money or saved you from having to queue for hours.

For anyone considering going to Hong Kong (even those that might have been there before) make sure that you book a tour with Jamie early in your stay.
