You may have been to Hong Kong before but do you know the story of how it came to be? Join this Hong Kong tour to walk the streets with a local guide who'll give you the inside story of this dizzying city.

One time British outpost and now a proud member of People's Republic of China, Hong Kong has had a long and fascinating history. The history of the last century for both Hong Kong and China is mapped out in its streets for those who know where to look.

On this historical Hong Kong tour, experience how a fusion of extremely different cultures has shaped Hong Kong today from its architecture and art right through to the mindset of the people who call it home. You’re sure to finis this HK tour with an insight and understanding that will enhance the rest of your stay.

Kick off your Hong Kong city tour from Sheung Wan, specifically at Possession Point, where the British first took Hong Kong. Witness the extreme urbanisation of Hong Kong as you stand on this site that was once part of the shoreline, but is now very much inland.

We then walk the Sun Yat-Sen historical trail and see where the founding father of republican China went to school, had his medical training, established the Revive China Society, and plotted the revolution against the monarchy.

We then head towards the Victoria City (as Hong Kong was then called) and the old administration centre, including the Central police station, the Magistracy and the Victorian Prison Compound. Afterwards, we go see the Fringe Club, housed in the colonial Dairy Farm Building, and famous for its alternative performances and displays by up-and-coming artists.

We'll stroll down the Duddell Street Steps, passing gas lamps as we head over to some of Central’s landmarks, including the Legislative Council building, the Cenotaph, Statue Square, and the Court of Final Appeal Building. Stop to admire the Anglican Church St. John’s Cathedral, the oldest Anglican church in the Far East and the only freehold building in the city.

Next on our HK tour, we'll stroll to nearby Hong Kong Park to see the beautiful Flagstaff House, the one time residence of the Commander of the British Forces in Hong Kong, and now home to an impressive display of antique tea ware.

Next it’s onto the new Government Headquarters Complex, where the ministers, legislators, and civil servants overlook the city’s famed Victoria Harbour. We also see the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, the pace where the 1997 Hong Kong sovereignty handover ceremony took place.

This popular spot is an ideal place to end this historical Hong Kong tour, and you can choose to further explore the busy waterfront or to head back into the centre of the city. Your local guide will be more than happy to provide recommendations for lunch and things to do during the rest of your Hong Kong trip.

“I did the Story of Hong Kong tour with Danny and enjoyed it so much - we went off the beaten path a little and thus got to see heaps and heaps of interesting sites that we would have completely missed otherwise. Breaks were really well timed and Danny answered all the questions we had and more. I would definitely do another tour and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone in Hong Kong, old or new!”

“11 月3日文化の日の祝日を利用して、香港を旅行してきました。香港も秋が始まったところで、暑くもなく寒くもなくとてもいい天候でした。 参加したツアーは The Story of Hong Kong というもので、多くのマーケットに連れて行ってもらいました。 それぞれの場所でその歴史や成り立ちなどを説明してもらいました。なぜ香港では鳥を飼っている人が多いか。などゲストに質問を投げかけながら進むツアーはとても面白かったです。 あっという間の3時間でした。 I enjoyed the tour called The Story of Hong Kong very much. It's worth to join.”
