What to expect
This private, half-day tour of Kowloon meets at Wong Tai Sin Station. Since this is a private tour, you can choose the size of your group. Your private guide gives you and your group the attention you need at all the stops along the way. If you’d like more (or less) time somewhere, just ask, and he or she will happily adjust your tour. Some of the hotspots your guide shows you includes Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden in Diamond Hill, Apliu Street Flea Market, and Wong Tai Sin Temple. Your guide also takes you to one of the poorest of all 18 of Hong Kong’s districts, Sham Shui Po District. Here your guide tells you stories about local life, and you can visit a wet market where people go to get their food for the day. Your tour ends at Sham Shui Po MTR Station. If you need help with directions at all, just ask your guide, and he or she will help you out.

Ivan is #1 Guide
Our recent trip to Hong Kong was made very special by the 4 hours we spent exploring Kowloon with Ivan. I am quite sure we would never have discovered all of these fascinating parts of Kowloon without Ivan and certainly not in just 4 hours. We used public transit and saw traditional Hong Kong and modern day Hong Kong. Ivan answered all of our questions and we would definitely hire him for additional tours of this magical place.

Thank you, 986barbarae. At Big Foot Tour, we love to help by providing a holistic overview of Hong Kong in our concise 4-hour walking tours. Based on our experience, this is the optimal time to have a taste of the real Hong Kong and also to discover the nooks and crannies of the city. Ivan sends his warmest regards and said he had a wonderful time too! He enjoyed learning about the differences between Texas and Hong Kong. Thanks for all the photos that you've shared with us over Facebook and email too. It brings back lots of good memories. Hope to see you soon in Hong Kong!

Amazing afternoon exploring the real Hong Kong
Oct 2018 • Couples
We had an amazing afternoon exploring the real Hong Kong with our guide Ivan. We discovered Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple - One of the largest and most popular temples in Hong Kong. Then we walked to Chi Lin Nunnery and Nan Lian Garden - A beautiful and peaceful Buddhist nunnery and tranquil gardens. A short subway ride to Sham Shui Po we enjoyed amazing local food and insights into local life and housing. Make sure you visit the fish and chicken markets they are something else.

Ivan was an exceptional guide make sure you ask for him...

Thank you, _nsclapham. It's been our joy to be part of your first trip to Hong Kong. Ivan has very fond memories of your tour, especially how the jokes and laughter were almost non-stop! Yes, the fish and chicken markets are a must-do during the Kowloon Private Tour, and definitely a slice of the everyday life in Hong Kong!

Thank you, Mike H. It makes our day to know that our Kowloon Private Tour has been of great value to you! At Big Foot Tour, we love to highlight the everyday life of a local, be it our unique culture, social issues, or simply our perspectives on what this country really means to us. We are appreciative of this opportunity to share with you the real Hong Kong, beyond the seemingly glam and glitter of Hong Kong. We look forward to welcome you back to Hong Kong one day! Hope you have a lovely subsequent trip to Singapore too. Happy holidays!

Fabulous HK walking tour!
I hadn't been to Hong Kong in 10 years so decided to organize a walking tour on our day of arrival to help us get our bearings and see some of the major highlights. We were greeted by our guide Celia in our hotel lobby just as expected and we were whisked off on a fun journey through Kowloon and Hong Kong Island. She was very informative and extremely friendly. Answered all the questions and took us to some local delicacies just as requested. Never once felt like we were being taken to tourist locations or restaurants. We actually avoided places that had those types of reputations. I would have booked another tour the following day but there was nothing available... I will definitely use Bigfoot when I return. Highly recommend this company!

Thank you, Derek J. We love this statement of yours, 'Never once felt like we were being taken to tourist locations or restaurants'. Indeed, at Big Foot Tour, we love going off the beaten path and show our guests the hidden side of Hong Kong. Similarly, Hong Kong has a fabulous dining scene where you do not have to pay through the roof to enjoy a good meal (which may even be Michelin-recommended). We always love a chance to share all these insights with our guests! Thanks for the pictures too, Derek. They brought back lovely memories, especially for Celia!

Thank you, Strangebrew2018. We are delighted to hear that you had a great time! Indeed, what makes our tours special is that we focus on the behind-the-scenes look into Hong Kong. We love sharing insights into the everyday life of Hong Kong through observation, active participation and fun conversations. Hopefully the next time you visit Hong Kong, we'll have the pleasure of showing you around Hong Kong Island and/or New Territories too! (Psst, Ivan is already looking forward to chat with you about Football & Norwich City again!)

We had Ivan as our tour guide. Had a great time exploring and learning about Kowloon and Hong Kong. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Hong Kong, especially if you are staying on the HK Island side. I would do the tour again and would request to have Ivan as my guide.

Thank you, Adam V. Ivan had a lovely time showing you and your brother around Kowloon. He is also very glad to be part of your first trip to Hong Kong and Asia. Born and bred in Hong Kong, Ivan loves sharing his local insights and providing a behind-the-scenes look into this dynamic city. As a fellow sports fan, he particularly enjoyed chatting with both of you about Chicago Bulls. Thank you for your warm hands of friendship and we hope to explore Hong Kong with you again some time soon!
