Here's a selection of Hong Kong One Day and Multi Day Tours and Activities, from harbour cruises to walking tours through the markets, day trips to China and Macau, and excursions to the nearby islands.
Hong Kong has to be one of the easiest places to get around and see on your own, in fact, it is what we recommend. But in some instances, you might be short on time or just want to have all the details taken care for or you want to make arrangements in advance for something you know you really want to see or do.
We have partnered with Viator to bring our Hong Kong Travellers a collection of hand-picked tours, activities and day trips. Leave the planning and organising to them, that way you spend your time enjoying the attractions instead of making reservations, checking schedules and getting tickets! What could be easier?!
