Great way to learn more about the city
Dec 2019 • Couples
There was a mix up in our initial meeting, but Sam more than made up for that. He is very personable and knowledgeable. While walking us through non-tourist areas he told us about the history, gave his perception on current events; was very open in talking about his life and living in Hong Kong and answering our questions. Also made great suggestions on other places to see.
I highly recommend Sam.

I booked the tour of Kowloon with Armie and it was really interesting.
Armie is very knowledgeable and added many personal and family stories
along the way, which was fascinating. I would warmly recommend Armie
if you are thinking about booking a tour. Thank you again for sharing
your experience and making me discovering your city.

Excellent and personal insight
On seeing our relatively young guide, Armie, I wondered if we were just supplementing his next social outing... turned out that he not only gave us an excellent insight into the benefits and difficulties of modern HK living but also shared his family’s story of arrival and survival from the 60s onwards. The areas and places we visited brought his story and that of all ‘real’ Hong Kongers to life. Excellent and highly recommended.
Our party’s ages ranged from 8 to 71, all were impressed and appreciative.

Kowloon like a local with Angel
Angel was fun, energetic and full of interesting family anecdotes
about the area and local history. She easily adapted her style to
older teenagers and her enthusiasm for sharing her local knowledge of
Hong Kong gave us a great afternoon. We are working through her tips
for further activities and places to visit. We would very happily go
on another of her tours.

Book this with Adrian Paul
Mar 2019 • Couples
Adrian Paul was the perfect guide for "Kowloon Like a Local." My husband and I really enjoyed this experience and seeing how the majority of people live in Hong Kong, and getting to see parts of the city we would have never found on our own. Since Adrian grew up in Hong Kong, he was able to answer our many questions about everyday life. I highly recommend this tour, so you can get off the beaten track. We also did the Best of Hong Kong Tour: Highlights & Hidden Gems with Adrian right before, and enjoyed seeing the contrast between Hong Kong Island and the non-touristy part of Kowloon. We were led by Adrian again a couple of days later for the Hong Kong Favorite Food Tour, where he took us to his favorite spots for Dim Sum, Wonton Noodles, and Brisket with Rice Noodles and more. He was a great guide!
It was like having a friend in the city.

Great tour of Kowloon with Adrian Paul
Feb 2019 • Couples
Adrian Paul was an incredible tour guide. He took us into areas of
Hong Kong not normally explored by visitors and we loved the insight
into the daily life of the Hong Kong folk in that area. It was a real
eye-opener and very educational. Adrian Paul was very informative and
we highly recommend him as a guide.

Fantastic Tour - Highly Recommended
Jan 2019 • Family
This was the first locals tour I have done and I am extremely
impressed. The local knowledge Angel shared was brilliant and really
interesting. She engaged with our whole group with ease, aiming the
tour at all age groups present. She helped the kids with their 'insta'
poses picking the right shots for their Instagram. She was lovely. I
fully recommend Angel and will be booking her again next time we are
in town.

Host No-show
Dec 2018 • Couples
Thoroughly enjoyed a 3 day visit to Hong Kong and its charming people. Rather tarnished by host failing to show at the agreed time for a tour booked 2 months in advance. Host failed to respond to phone call. Refund made from "Withlocals," but otherwise pitiful semi-apology/excuse. Made worse by laughable comment: "We hope you will enjoy Withlocals experience next time."

We won't, because we won't be using them!

Brilliant & 100% recommended
Angel was funny, informative and really good fun to tour with. She
took us to lots of 'off the track' places and was a great source of knowledge. Definitely and 100% recommend.
