Hello! We are Amy, Nadia and Heloisa, and together we provide you with memorable, personalised and fully immersive experiences during your time in Hong Kong.
We love to share our city with you, be it with single travellers, couples, groups and families. Most of our tours are by foot, but we also provide air conditioned vehicles for when you have just a short time or have accessibility needs.
We love meeting cruise ship passengers docking at Kai Tak or Ocean Terminal – and we will ALWAYS meet you at the ship, and never ask you to make your way to a central meeting point. We can provide you with a fantastic shore excursion to make the most of your short time in the city.
We also provide luxury cruises for the harbour firework celebrations, four times a year.
We love to be flexible, and although we may provide you with a suggested itinerary, our main goal is for you not to feel rushed and to enjoy your time exploring the city – we can keep things as flexible as you like! Do let us know in advance if you have any special requests and we will do our best to include it for you. Every tour is based around you!
When I set up my company, my goal was to be make my guests become a city insider, helping them to learn all about Hong Kong’s history and people. Sharing these insights with overseas guests and being your friend in Hong Kong is what me and my team are most passionate about.

I have had both my children in Hong Kong, and left the UK nearly 10 years ago now. When I moved, my goal was never to be an outsider in this city, and so I spent the time (trying) to learn the language and all about its history and people. Sharing these insights with overseas guests and being your friend in Hong Kong is what I am most passionate about.
Why consider a private tour? Because Hong Kong is at its most magnificent up close and personal! Not only that, with me around, you can ask any question that springs to mind, eat items you may have been reluctant to try, learn how to use the public transport system, adapt the itinerary and to give you the in depth understanding and enjoyable day you’re looking for.
I always want you to get the most from Hong Kong and so will adapt the tour to suit you. Whether you want to see the famous skyline, ride the tram or Star Ferry, keep the kids entertained, go to the historic neighbourhoods or visit a local Hong Konger in their home, I have the perfect itinerary for you.
My most popular tours are on foot and by taking the cheap and efficient public transport to get us around quickly. However, I can also offer tours in a private vehicle for those hot summer months or for accessibility needs.
My tours are tailor-made, so if you have any specific wishes, it can absolutely be sorted for you. Over my four years as a tour guide, I have been asked for many things… Organising a marriage proposal on Repulse Bay beach at the God of Marriages; hunting for a former RAF base in the New Territories; eating novelty dim sum which vomits(!); to holding snakes and visiting a local in their “average” sized apartment. You name it, we’ve done it! Have a look at my tours here or my news section here to give you some ideas as well, or email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been fortunate enough to receive the Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence four years running, and I have the highest 5-star rating on Tours by Locals. I love guiding, it’s such a lovely job and I am truly energised by the people I meet. Be it families, couples or small groups, I learn something from you every time and always feel like I have found new friends in the far corners of the world. Hopefully you will see this reflected in my reviews as well.
Book a tour with me, I look forward to greeting you!

Welcome to Hong Kong, China’s most dynamic city! I have lived here for several years now and I have immersed myself fully into the rich culture of China. My family and I started our Asian journey in Shenzhen, the world centre for the electronics industry and surprisingly green metropolis. My 10-year-old son attends local school and has mastered the Chinese language, and so I too began to learn, alongside the history and traditions of the largest and most mysterious country in the East. Becoming a licensed guide has meant that I can apply my knowledge of Asia in a job I love.
Whatever your interests are and whatever time you have to visit, I love to share my experiences with you, our guests; I like to open up a secret side to Hong Kong so you can see it in all its true form, meaning the good and the bad, to give you the authentic experience you are looking for.
You may have heard about this skyscraper city, with ultra-modern structures alongside ancient traditions, its mind-blowing density, and unique history? Let’s dig deeper and explore it together! Even if you have already visited before, I will gladly discover something new and unique, just for you. I will become your friend, and you will leave knowing you have truly seen the real Hong Kong.
Why choose a private tour? Because, it will be like visiting the city with a knowledgeable friend. I’ll pick up the keys to Hong Kong’s secret doors, through which you get inside the city, and see what is usually not shown from on TV or glossy covers of magazines. Because, I can answer any question that may arise from a sophisticated traveler, and I can also converse with local residents. Because, I know how to use the public transport system, the most economical way (trams, buses, metro) and the most chic (boat, helicopter, limousine). Because, in addition to the popular tourist attractions, Hong Kong has many islands with their own unique culture and other secrets that I will gladly share. I always strive to ensure that guests receive the best the city has to offer, and choose the route of the tour according to your interests, wishes and preferences. Whether you want to see the sunset at the Peak, take a tram ride or Star Ferry, interest and entertain children and teenagers, take a stroll through the historic neighborhoods or even visit a local resident in their house, I have the perfect route for you!
Maybe you do not know what you want to do yet? Then let’s get acquainted …
I look forward to seeing you soon!

“We had a 6 hour private car tour of key highlights of Hong Kong with Amy. She was an amazing host to our family of four including two young children. Being a mom herself, she was so accommodating and helpful with our family routine and needs... Such a treat to be in the company of a local who is so hospitable, knowledgeable and interesting to spend the day with.
We had an amazing day out with Amy. Recommendation without hesitation!”
Teixeria Family, September 2017 – TripAdvisor Review here
“On less than 10 hours notice, Nadia provided us with an in depth and personalized tour of Kowloon and Hong Kong that kept both us older folks and our teenage daughters entertained and interested. From local legends and customs to modern rivalries and feng shui to shopping and eating gems, Nadia knew loads of relevant details about every aspect of Hong Kong life. Thank you so much for making our only day in Hong Kong a wonderful and memorable one!“
