Touring with a Friend - Mandy
KWCanada1234, 31-07-2021
Mandy was phenomenal! I know this review is ridiculously long overdue but that has nothing to do with her effort or her tour. She had great information for the four of us - just there for one day before a cruise - showed us the highlights, introduced us to some interesting foods and areas, adjusted according to what we were enjoying, and really just felt like a friend giving us a tour. We all agreed that we couldn’t have done better.
Amazing tour - it was like having family in Hong Kong

My family was on a cruise and had an overnight stay with two days to see some of Hong Kong. We went with Apple both days of our visit, and it was an amazing experience. On the first day, we went up to Victoria Peak and explored downtown Hong Kong. On the second day, we visited the New Territories.

Apple met us at the cruise terminal, and then we used the efficient Hong Kong public transit system get around. Apple did more than show us the sights. She candidly answered all questions we had regarding life in Hong Kong, and we felt that we learned a lot and gained a new appreciation of Hong Kong. She also brought us to places where there were not a lot of tourists, including a housing development and other places, including a fish farm and remote island, in the New Territories, and even helped us understand Taoist and Buddhist worship, and a fortune teller's analysis at a Taoist shrine.

In addition, one of our goals was to enjoy dim sum and Cantonese food. We have food allergies (shellfish and nuts). Apple ensured that everything we ordered would comply with our dietary needs. She took us to two restaurants where we had the best meals of our three-week vacation.

Mandy could not have been more knowledgable and more hospitable! She showed us the best day! Mandy showed us all the different areas of Hong Kong using a variety of public transportation. Her English was perfect. We enjoyed a delicious lunch together at a local restaurant. You must hire this company. You will not be disappointed. Loved every moment.
Amazing Day in Hong Kong
David W, 20-01-2020
Myself and three colleagues were in Hong Kong on business the week of January 13 2020. On the Thursday we booked a four hour tour. Apple was our tour guide. She did an amazing job showing us Hong Kong and letting us experience the city through her eyes. I would highly recommend anyone looking to see Hong Kong as a local to book this tour. Apple was a phenomenal host!!1
Excellent tour guides

We had a layover in HongKong in December 2019 and I did a 7-hour day tour with Apple along with my 2 teen daughters. It was an awesome experience. I was in touch with Mandy and Apple for several days prior to our trip. They patiently answered all my questions and clarified my doubts and concerns, especially in the light of he ongoing protests in HK right now. We encountered no issues during our time in HK. Apple met with us at the airport and took us on an exhilarating tour of HongKong. We covered both Lantau and HongKong islands.
Some of the things we covered included Tai O Fishing Village
Tian Tan Buddha, Po Lin Monastery
NP360 Cable Car ride
Lunch at Hong Kong style cafe
"Cursing Business" & Causeway Bay wet markets, Victoria Peak and Lugard Road.
I strongly recommend Mandy and Apple at HongKong Getaway. They are the best.
