Offering award winning accommodation at Lantau Lodge, situated on 2nd Floor of the family home (we live on 1st Floor) we are your home away from home in Hong Kong. Book now to share the history of the fomer last bastion of the British Empire now Special Administrative region of China with a former colonial, now Hong Kong local, who has made this truly great city his home.
I offer fun and immersive tours and will give you a unique insight into life in Hong Kong based on my personal experiences as a soldier, sportsman, father and businessman covering 30 years in HK (I'm 49 years old) having come to HK with the British Army and never leaving.
We'll cover history from before the opium wars to present day and everything in between, colonial rule, WWII, housing, economy, raising a family in HK, running a business, tax, "politics", sport, horse racing, religion, HKID card system/Immigration, education, private clubs (a current hot topic) role of the British Army and much, much more. We'll use public transport, as we take in the sights, which can include Peak Tram, Star Ferry, Ding Ding Tram, Bus and Taxi. For food, we can have dim sum, noodles, roasted meats, seafood, have milk tea and French toast at a cha chaan teng, eat from Dai Pai Dongs and even try snake soup. I can cook Cantonese (and many other styles) food in my home, take guests for lunch or dinner overlooking the pitch at Kowloon Cricket Club or go for a curry in Chung King Mansions. Some guests yearn for a ham and cheese sandwich and a coffee, whatever your tastes we'll fit them in nicely.
