For large group bookings we require partial payment / deposit four week in advance.
Final payment needs to be settled seven days in advance to confirm the booking (you may cancel up to this point as well without cancellation fees).
Public transportation – we highly recommend you obtain the Octopus travelcards for getting around. These can be used on all ferries, buses, trains and trams which you will be using on a private walking tour. They cost HK $150 per adult ($50 deposit) and can be purchased in Hong Kong currency from and train station. We can help you with this when we meet.
Private transportation – we offer private car tours in luxury vehicles (up to 7 passengers without luggage) and coach tours for large groups all over Hong Kong, including the restricted areas in Lantau for the Big Buddha. Please visit our Car Tours page or Group Tours page for pricing and details. All tolls and parking fees are included in the tour fee.
All personal food and drink costs on the tour are the responsibility of the guest, however, these costs are very affordable in Hong Kong, typically HK $100-150 per person and we can guarantee you the tastiest in Chinese cuisine!
Any other costs such as entrance fees, or transport costs not covered by Octopus card (such as sampan rides, park entrance fees etc) are at the guest’s own expense.
We kindly request that you let us know if you are no longer able to make the tour as soon as you possibly can. We do understand that unforeseen circumstances do arise.
You may cancel, in writing, up to 7 days before the tour commencement date and time and your payment will be refunded in full via your original payment method.
If the tour in cancelled within 3-6 days of the tour, 75% of your tour fee will be refunded.
If the tour is cancelled within 24-48 hours of the tour start time, 50% of your tour fee will be refunded.
If the tour is cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, or you do not show up for the tour, no refund will be issued.
NB: Travel insurance is highly recommended
In the event of Typhoon Signal 8, 9 or 10, or a Red or Black Rain storm the tour will automatically be cancelled due to safety of our guests. All tour fees will be refunded.
Hong Kong Greeters can cancel at any time and your fee will be refunded. In the unlikely event that we need to cancel the tour with your arranged guide, all endeavours will be made to make alternative arrangements for the tour to go ahead with an alternative guide, if this is your preference.
We will suggest what we think you may like best based on your interests for your customised tour. There is a list supplied on the booking form, but also have a look at our News Blog sections to give you some ideas as well. We are always very flexible, before and during the tour – we want you to get the most from Hong Kong!
For walking tours, you and your party must have a moderate level of fitness to be able to join. Hong Kong is hilly and very hot in the summer. If you are unsure, please discuss with us directly. We do have Car Tour options available.
