Your guide will meet you for your half-day private Hong Kong Island tour. Hong Kong was once a simple fishing village. Today, it is one of the world's most cosmopolitan cities where East truly meets West. See all the highlights of Hong Kong Island on this orientation tour. It's a great way to get to know Hong Kong and its famous landmarks and history.
You'll begin with a ride on the iconic Star Ferry as you cross Victoria Harbor, one of Hong Kong's greatest assets, and a jewel that people marvel at no matter how many times they visit the city. Next, experience the world's steepest funicular railway; the Peak Tram. Pulled by steel cables, it climbs 373 meters (about 1,200 feet), and is so steep that the buildings you pass look like they're leaning. Looking down from "The Peak", you'll be amazed by the spectacular view of Victoria Harbor and Kowloon, as well as the towering skyscrapers that dot the city skyline.
Your next stop will be the famous fishing village of Aberdeen. It's a fascinating glimpse of Hong Kong's junk-dwelling floating community, still very much a part of Hong Kong life. An optional 15-20 minutes sampan ride can be arranged into the typhoon shelter for a close-up view of waterborne life. As you pass through picturesque Repulse Bay, we'll reach Stanley; a popular market town on the sunny south side of Hong Kong Island. The remainder of your tour is free to exploring Stanley's relaxed ambiance and markets, where bargain buys have made it world famous. Upon returning to your hotel, the rest of the day is free for independent sightseeing.

Enjoy Good Evening Kowloon Tour via public transportation. Gritty, traditional, but also a mirror of contemporary Hong Kong, the Kowloon heartlands of Yau Ma Tei and Jordan are at their buzzing, idiosyncratic best as night falls. Visit a century-old fruit market for a blend of hilarious urban tales and exotic fruits. Soak in the lights and sounds at Temple Street market. This flea market is full of quirky, Hong Kong-esque souvenirs (such as Hong Kong street signs) to take home. The actual market on Temple Street is in the Yau Ma Tei and Jordan sections of Temple Street. It starts in the late afternoon every day and continues throughout the evening. It's also a good place to find good deals on handbags, sunglasses, clothes, decorations, DVDs, toys and electronic gadgets. Be prepared to bargain in order to strike a good deal, but it's always done in good humor. (And don't forget to hunt in the shops hidden behind the stalls). In between your tour, we'll stop to enjoy a very local dinner in an art-deco restaurant. You'll also get the chance to have your fortune told under a banyan tree before we cap off the night with more local food delights.
