Growing up between Hong Kong and Scotland, I was never a stranger to adventure. Wether it was scaling mountains in the Scottish Highlands or the finding new waterfalls in the New Territories of HK, I was always keen to utilise any opportunity to explore.

After finishing school, I got my first taste of a big adventure sailing an 80ft yacht from Scotland to the Svalbard archipelago near the North Pole. My post school years were then spent working and skiing in New Zealand & travelling around Southeast Asia. All this, before moving to Australia do a degree in architecture.

Whilst studying, I completed a solo bicycle trip across Vietnam and China, cycling from Saigon to Hong Kong. I wrote a book based on the experience that led to greater endeavours in the ensuing years.

With university done, I proceeded to tackle a bigger challenge; cycling across Africa. I completed the solo ride from Cape Town to Cairo within 5 months, with a few eye-opening experiences along the way to say the least! My recent climbing of some high altitude routes in the Andes another notable experience.

As an experienced traveller, I enjoy meeting other travellers and showing them a different side to Hong Kong. Having grown up there, I have a unique insight into many facets of ‘HK’ life.

    Rory took my son (15 years old) and I (46 years old) on a fantastic hike with panoramic views of Hong Kong that led to a fun beach spot at the end. We only had a quick weekend in Hong Kong and no time to plan our outings beforehand. We dreaded sitting on a bus for a canned tour and Rory’s excursion was exactly what we wanted with no hassle. In fact, the outing exceeded our expectations. Rory is easy going, friendly and patient. He has led an adventurous life and has terrific stories. He is clearly capable of taking clients on a range of hikes from hikes that accommodate weekend warriors to ones fitting serious adventurers. I also found the customer service on ‘Sam the Local’ excellent. E-mailed questions were quickly responded to and last minute requests filled. All-in-all I would use Rory and the ‘Sam the Local’ again in a heartbeat.

    Rory took a group of sixteen creative travelers out on an overnight camping adventure to Tai Long Wan. He was patient, upbeat and had the perfect attitude (especially when dealing with a group of our size!). Having grown up in Hong Kong, his vast expertise in hiking routes, local ecosystems, and everything in between was a huge asset. We would all highly recommend Rory and Sam the Local and look forward to working with them again on subsequent visits to Hong Kong!
