I like meeting new people and I love my home, Hong Kong. I have traveled extensively (top-rated TripAdvisor reviewer), and have many expat friends in Asia, and enjoy diversity of experience and relationships. I’ve worked in hospitality and marketing my whole life as a result.

I believe Hong Kong is unique in many ways, and nothing makes me happier than to meet people who get the full experience from it.

It is a mix of East and West, commercial yet cultural, gateway to China yet separate from it, sister city to Macao and Shenzhen, small enough to tour extensively with the great transport, home to 700K expats many of whom retire here.

You can come here just for the variety and excellence of local food, and have a grand time. Or you can come just for the hopping nightlife and dusk-till-dawn social scene. There is something for everyone

$400HKD / hour for up to 2 people (minimum 2 hours) and $400HKD / additional set of 2 people, does not include food or other miscellaneous costs

    It was our first trip to Hong Kong, a father and son travelling together at Christmas.
    Lotus delivered a great insight into not just the local cuisines, she also took us to points of interest that we would not have been able to experience on our own..

    Throughout our walk she continued to ask about our interests and was accommodating to both of our wide ranging ideas. she even diverted the walk to include the Happy Valley racetrack for my son , as he was hoping for some excitement, cocktails and socializing. And on a Wednesday night in Hong Kong there is only ONE place that could deliver! Lotus made sure we got there even though it was well after our agreed cut off time..

    As the parent of a 23 yo I find the best measure of my success is to ask if he’d do that again?
    So at the end of the tour I asked that very question, and in answer I got, YES he thought is was great, really good value for the tour and the meals and yes he’d do another one with Lotus. Oh just one other note – he also wants to know when I’m bringing him back again

    During our brief visit to Hong Kong, we wanted to attempt to do a deep dive into the city’s food scene and with the help of Lotus we were able to achieve that and more! Lotus took us to places we would have never discovered ourselves. This allowed us to experience the variety of foods Hong Kong has to offer such as Snake Soup, Turtle Soup, Pig Intestines, etc.

    Lotus made the tour enjoyable, stress-free and informative. All of the questions we had for her during the tour whether it be related to the history or current city environment, Lotus was able to answer. You could sense her appreciation and excitement for the city.

    We would recommend Lotus to anyone visiting Hong Kong who wants to eat like a local.

    Lotus is an exceptional local! She ticks all the boxes in terms of what I look for in a guide.
    She is in tune with her clients, has excellent local knowledge, is extremely proud of her city, cares about meeting your needs and she goes the extra mile.
    We did a ‘4 hour nearly extinct food experience with Lotus a few days ago. She had collaboratively planned the itinerary, taking account of our interests and was diligent in touching base prior to our meeting. From the start, Lotus was a delightful and warm companion, easy to chat to and full of interesting information and tips. Beyond simply introducing us to local customs and traditional foods and drinks like fake chicken, stinky tofu, white sugar sponge cake and chrysanthemum tea, Lotus explained the history and cultural context of each – which made it a much richer and memorable experience than tasting tours can be. We also explored the history of Mei Ho House and learned about how local high rise housing evolved. Lotus thought of everything – from lunch box samples and cool towels to sourcing some local sweets I wanted to buy. Her commitment to ensuring we had a great time and her charming company means that we will always be spending time with Lotus when we return to Hong Kong. Make sure you book Lotus for a premium guided HK experience – you will be so glad you did!

    It had been a while since I was in Hong Kong, so thought it would be nice to have someone to show me around.

    Lotus is an excellent guide, very knowledgeable, certainly know more about the city since I last saw 30 years ago. There were specific places I wanted to visit. She managed not only that but also places I don’t remember but still exists.

    She took me to places only unique in Hong Kong: the 20 minutes escalator ride, outdoor markets.

    After the tour, she even recommend places to go and how to get there by tram, bus, ferry and MTR.

    Couple days before we flied out, we got lost in the midst of all the excitement. We contacted her, within minutes, we were back on track.

    This was my first time visiting Hong Kong and since I don’t have any family or friends in the area, I really wanted a local to help show me around. Lotus was a perfect tour guide and made my experience 100x better. After our tour was confirmed, Lotus immediately contacted and asked me what I wanted to do. I gave her a rather extensive list and she was able to create the perfect itinerary, which included nearly everything I wanted to see. Lotus was very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful, and responsive. From the moment I landed in Hong Kong to the moment I left, Lotus was always checking up on me to make sure I arrived safely at my destination. She was an extremely valuable resource during my time in Hong Kong and should I ever return, I will be sure to use her again. If you’re on the fence about whether or not to schedule a tour with Lotus, I would advise you to book her immediately! You will not be disappointed.
