Deluxe Tour of Hong Kong

Named the Fragrant Harbour, Hong Kong reveals its beauty once you meet your English-speaking guide and set out on your way. The comfortable motor coach takes you to the Lowe Peak Tram terminus in the Central District where you will board a Peak Tram - the city's historic, funicular railway since 1888, for the ascent to Victoria Peak. This is a visual experience in its own right as Hong Kong Island's skyscrapers slide past your window at what appears to be impossible angles. Once atop Victoria Peak, you will have a bird's eye view of the entire city known for its spectacular skyline and deep harbor.

Next, you'll take a visit to Man (War) and Mo (Literature) Temple followed by an unforgettable ride on the Peak Tram en-route to Victoria Peak. Steel cables pull the tram 1,223 feet. Pass buildings that may appear to be leaning as you approach the Sky Terrace 428 (highest viewing platform in Hong Kong) atop Victoria Peak. The Kowloon peninsula, Victoria Harbour, and skyscrapers are all seen, just as if they were on a postcard.

Thereafter, you'll visit nearby Aberdeen - a once quiet fishing village, but now a bustling district where modernity meets tradition with skyscrapers overlooking a community living on traditional junks. The typhoon shelter is also a popular seafood dining spot and home to one of the world's largest floating restaurants. An optional ride on the sampan (water taxi) can be arranged at your own expense.

You will also have an opportunity to have a dim sum lunch at the Jumbo Kingdom. This iconic restaurant has served the likes of Queen Elizabeth II and Tom Cruise and is a staple in Hong Kong cuisine.

You will have exclusive access to the QTS award-winning TSL jewelry. Reserve this thrilling Hong Kong tour today for the comfort, sights, and cuisine.

Next, you will take the Island's historic double - decker tramway (Ding Ding since 1904) from Happy Valley to Causeway Bay after the jewelry factory visit.

In Causeway Bay, you will get to witness the traditional "Petty Person Beating" show by the local specialist. It is a folk ritual to expel anyone who may be malicious towards you and to make you calm and comfort mentally and physically.

At last, a visit to the local wet market for many photo-taking opportunities.

Great job by our guide. She was very concerned about our well being at a difficult time in Hong Kong. Very knowledgable, we enjoyed hearing the history behind the sites. Took us to a great lunch site and got us back in a timely fashion.
