Traffic is a bit of a problem and we are grateful that we chose the option of a private tour although it costed us more. Keith our driver was amazing and very forthcoming with information about the city. The tour is but only a touch of Hong Kong but very useful when you would want to return.
just wanting to let everybody know when taking this tour to watch out for the extreme traffic at certain times, especially during rush hour! Taking the airport shuttle bus to and from downtown Hong Kong will take about one full hour depending on the traffic. And it will depart always every 60 minutes, not every 30 minutes.... I wish I could have stayed at every spot a bit longer, except the jewelery manufactory. That is a bit like a sales session. Stanley Market closes around 6-6:30 PM, so you need to get there earlier to spend more time! Also, to see the fishing village you will need to take the ride on a boat to see it because it is hidden and the ride cost you too! I had to take a taxi going back to the hotel to take the shuttle bus...otherwise I would not have made it on time! Highlight of this tour was definately the tram ride.....breathtaking views!
Unfortunately, the timing of the tour and the time of the shuttle bus did not match up. The tour finished at 7-7:30pm, which meant that I had to leave the tour without seeing the Stanley markets, just so I could make the 6:25pm shuttle bus back to the airport. Also, the workroom at the Jewellery factory is shut on Sundays, so you can't see how the jewellery is made.
