Know More about this tour

To start your Hong Kong walking tour of Sheung Wan, enjoy a ride on the city's oldest and most traditional form of land transportation the tram built in 1904. Head west to Sheung Wan, the core urban area of Hong Kong that still maintains a vibrant environment of past traditions. See Bonham Road, which offers a variety of exotic dried seafood sold on the street, and have free time to roam around Cat Street, where you can do some window shopping or practice your bargaining skills in one of the many antique shops and galleries.
You can do more shopping on Hollywood Road, which boasts of several blocks of shops selling all kinds of bric-a-bracs like Chinese furniture, historical memorabilia, porcelain wares and even funeral items. Hollywood Road is also home to the largest Man Mo Temple in Hong Kong.

    This tour was amazing!

    Great tour of old and new Hong Kong, very interesting to see everyday life. Tour guide is very knowledgeable and took great care to ensure that everyone was engaged in the tour. Definitely not a tour for people who can't do a lot of walking over all different terrains over a substantial distance in approx.3 hours, lots of stairs and hills. Highly Recommend this tour.

    Very informative and an excellent tour guide. I guess after having done so many similar sorts of walks during out China tour is was something I had seen before.

    Fascinating way to begin our trip in Hong Kong. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and helpful. Some of my best photos are from this tour.

    Was nice to see some of the locals and get off the typical tourist paths. Our guide didn't seem the most knowledgable about the history of the area (he was born and raised in San Francisco) but was friendly and fun

    We were the only people on the walking tour, which was very enjoyable. We go to Hong Kong regularly but never have time to see and hear some of the history, the guide was very helpful and took us round some of the authrntic Chinese areas of which few are left.
