There was a mix up in our initial meeting, but Sam more than made up for that. He is very personable and knowledgeable. While walking us through non-tourist areas he told us about the history, gave his perception on current events; was very open in talking about his life and living in Hong Kong and answering our questions. Also made great suggestions on other places to see. I highly recommend Sam.

I booked the tour of Kowloon with Armie and it was really interesting. Armie is very knowledgeable and added many personal and family stories along the way, which was fascinating. I would warmly recommend Armie if you are thinking about booking a tour. Thank you again for sharing your experience and making me discovering your city.

On seeing our relatively young guide, Armie, I wondered if we were just supplementing his next social outing... turned out that he not only gave us an excellent insight into the benefits and difficulties of modern HK living but also shared his family’s story of arrival and survival from the 60s onwards. The areas and places we visited brought his story and that of all ‘real’ Hong Kongers to life. Excellent and highly recommended. Our party’s ages ranged from 8 to 71, all were impressed and appreciative.

Angel was fun, energetic and full of interesting family anecdotes about the area and local history. She easily adapted her style to older teenagers and her enthusiasm for sharing her local knowledge of Hong Kong gave us a great afternoon. We are working through her tips for further activities and places to visit. We would very happily go on another of her tours.

We were lucky to book two tours with Angel . Lovely guide that showed us parts we otherwise would not have visited. Also a great photographer:) Hope to repay you with a tour in Alkmaar Roger and the girls
