I started guiding in Hong Kong as a resource for sophisticated travelers coming to Hong Kong. Today's well-educated and culturally aware travelers want to experience the authentic city, eat the real food and immerse themselves in the local culture. They want to feel like insiders, not tourists.

But language barriers, and lack of travel time, make it difficult to accomplish this on your own. That's where we come in.

I've lived in Hong Kong since 2002, and I speak the language. When we go out together, you won't feel like you're "on tour"--you'll feel like you're being taken around town personally by a trusted, culturally-savvy friend. One who can take you straight to the most interesting locations, put you in the middle of the most fascinating situations.

I design each tour individually, in consultation with my clients. If you want to roam and explore culture, I'll take you through back streets, hidden temples, old Chinese neighborhoods. If you're a foodie, I'll take you to my personal selection of Hong Kong's top small eateries (I call this tour, the "Won-ton-a-thon"). If you are a shopaholic, then we'll hit the best and most unique local shops. And if you're a shutterbug, be prepared to get some great shots!

Because I read Chinese and speak Cantonese, I can take you straight to places that are often difficult for the casual Western traveler to access--saving you missteps and hassle, and maximizing your travel time in Hong Kong.

Hungry for Hong Kong's best food, but can't read the menu? No problem. I provide an Eating Concierge Service. I'll help you select great restaurants, then I'll speak with the restaurant to arrange your reservation and menu, If you like, I'll join your group at dinner or dim sum to explain and give background on the food.

My goal is simple. I want everyone who comes with me on a tour in Hong Kong to feel the magic and excitement of this terrific city. "We give you our Hong Kong...so you can make it yours."
