    Winnie was great in showing us around some of the areas of Kowloon that we had previously never been. She really opened our eyes to some interesting streets, restaurants and shops. Thanks Winnie!

    Winnie was engaging, fun and a fountain of knowledge. We loved her tour through Hung Hom, Yau Ma Tei and Mongkok. My friend and I had both lived in HK for years but we got to experience a side of HK we had never seen before. We were happy to go with her flow and loved hearing her stories, from family tidbits to the history of the areas we were visiting. We spent a lot of time eating and the highlight was the most delicious egg waffle I have ever had in my life! I would recommend Winnie to anyone – whether that’s those visiting HK on vacation or people who have lived-in HK for a while and simply want to try something new.

    WE LOVED HER! We had a great time and wished we could have had her with us for TWO days! She stopped on the street and would tell us trivia, history, suggestions for snacks, art and other points of interest. Her knowledge of Hong Kong was extremely LOCAL . Winnie explained the shrine/temple traditions and was very respectful of everyone’s beliefs and ideas. She was personable, engaging, helpful and interesting. We have been to most places in the world so we are not easily impressed. She IMPRESSED us. Our 12 year old daughter was with us so Winnie included all sorts of young, fun things for her too. She navigated the MTR, streets, areas with ease so we had an excellent time enjoying the city with her. HIGHLY RECOMMEND Winnie and this website. Thank you!

    Winnie is amazing! she was so informative and helpful and went out of her way to help us. Her stories and history about the city was fabulous. It was our first full day in Hong Kong and she really introduced us to the city and all its history. I would recommend Winnie if you wanted a introduction to the city, she will saved you hours of getting lost and disoriented.in your first day. Also she is so lovely person. We felt instantly comfortable and welcomed by Winnie.

    Thank you Winnie for such a lovely day and tour. Wish we booked you for a full day instead of 4 hours only 🙂

    Winnie is an incredible guide. Her knowledge, warm-outgoing personality, kindness, and her story telling was phenomenal! She led us all around the Kowloon district, many of the best street food vendors, had us try several different types of food, all of which were outstanding. She taught us how to use the mtr and the ferries. She enraptured us with historical stories. She went above and beyond recommending different places and things to do while in Hong Kong (excellent suggestions). In every way she was a delightful tour guide. We whole heartedly agree with all of the other reviews on this page!

    Winnie is a reporter and and meets people with incredible stories that she’s bursting to tell. And it shows during the insightful 2-hr walk around Sheung Wan and Central where she told us the insider stories behind the antique streets, the skyscrapers of Central, the umbrella movement. I love how she would add her own local perspectives so that we got a glimpse of the lives of every day living in HK. Highly recommended!

    Winnie is amazing and very knowledge about Hong Kong! My sisters and I met her for 4 hours and instantly we connected. Her personality is very bubbly, warm and friendly. She made us feel like a local in the area. and the agenda planned for us was exactly what we were looking for! She took us to Sheung Wan and Central. As we walked she provide the historical background of the area, what it’s know for and had many great stories to tell. She took us to a couple of amazing local restaurants where the locals go on a day to day basis and the food was so good! We had the best pork chop rice, noodle, egg tart and milk tea! We really enjoyed the time with her and would high recommend Sam the Local! I learned so much about Hong Kong from the experience and would truly use again!

    We had a great walking tour with Winnie. She friendly and so eager to share her love of Hong Kong! We got to see many areas in a short amount of time. We were only there for a morning and this overview of Hong Kong was wonderful. We would not have been able to see so much on our own. The mix of old and new was nice. Winnie added lots of info about history, local customs, etc. We especially enjoyed seeing the Hung Shing Temple, Wan Chai where locals would go. She took us to taste some traditional snacks and drinks! Overall a fantastic experience.

    Winnie is wonderful. I spent four hours sharing stories, listening to anecdotes and walking historic neighborhoods like a local. She is smart, knowledgeable, and fun. And…she took me for delicious dim sum. Thank you Winnie!

    Our family had never been to Hong Kong and wanted to get our bearings as well as getting to know the city. We met with Winnie and had an incredible experience, seeing sights, learning history, understanding more about the culture and getting a grasp on local food. Winnie was very knowledgable, warm and interesting. The itinerary she planned was well thought out and gave us a good grounding for the rest of our stay. My mother in law was able to bargain well at the markets after tips from Winnie and my two year old was well accommodated from places to run and delicious food to try. We could not recommend Winnie more highly.
