 Timing is everything...

Timing is everything...

Enjoy an authentic Hong Kong experience by joining me on a premium Hong Kong airport layover tour.

I will welcome you at the airport, help you stow your luggage and thereafter lead you through as much of the essential highlights of Hong Kong as can practicably be compressed into your brief air transit layover.

Your premium airport layover tour can be extended to cover as many hours as you have available. Airport layover tours generally span 4-6 hours. The more time you have the more you will see. I have the city plan organized into readily adaptable modules.

For reference, Kowloon is best for experiencing the raw Cantonese street culture of Hong Kong. Hong Kong Island is essential for understanding modern day Hong Kong and its early development as a British Colony.

We will travel to our first destination by taxi, bus or train so you can enjoy the magnificent and fascinating views along the way from Lantau Island.

The magnificent view crossing the amazing Stone Cutter Bridge, the second longest cable stayed bridge in the world.

Subject to your available time, we will visit Victoria Peak, historic Central Hong Kong, Victoria Harbor and the Star Ferry, a fascinating Chinese temple and one of my favorite old Chinese neighborhoods including an old school Chinese wet market and a local snack stop.

I will provide a historic and cultural overview that will allow you to leave this magnificent city with the ability to confidently and knowledgeably relate everything you will see and hear.

The infamous old Kai Tak Airport runway viewed next to my neighborhood, old To Kwa Wan. The small island you see to the right is now a public park surrounded by reclaimed land. The low buildings you see, with one or two exceptions are all gone. I watched a number getting torn down. The neighborhood is vintage 50-60-70's in many respects, with modern high rises rapidly cropping up.

At the end of the tour I will make sure you make it to the airport three hours in advance of your flight departure time either via the Airport Express from Hong Kong Station, or by a safe and reliable taxi (every cab driver in Hong Kong loves to hear the magic word, airport).

  We cover lots of ground on a 6 hour layover tour.

Precise timing and flexibility are the name of this game, so don't be shy and feel free to ask plenty of questions. None of my airport transit layover clients will ever miss their flight!

Important Note: Airport transit/layover tours can also be configured for a visit to the nearby Giant Buddha and Tai O fishing village on Lantau Island.
