What you can expect

On this private tour you can stroll past some of the island’s well-known attractions – such as the Macau Grand Prix stand – and you may choose to have a closer look. But this tour is really about exploring the backstreets of Macau to discover how the locals live. We can also see some of wonderful hidden gems that cannot be found in any travel book. These are places that are difficult to find... unless of course you go with a local, like me.

With me as your private guide you won’t waste a second searching for the real-deal experience. Every minute of your time can become a moment to treasure. We can visit a bustling market and feel the vibes as locals buy their fish, meat and vegetables. We can even tast- test some of the exotic fruits that are also on sale. We can stroll through local streets, and stop at cafes and bars – I can show you my favourite spots and we can mingle with the locals. We’ll get a very real feel of what it’s like to live here.

Fancy a bite to eat? Let me know your preferred tastes, and I can show you where best places are to dine, or if you prefer where the tastiest and most trusted street food is found. Want to take a masterpiece photo? I can show you the most iconic and most Macau-authentic locations.

We can visit the lagoon and its neighbouring streets. Step inside a traditional bakery and sample some of the merchandise. Or we can simply explore the streets. Along the way I can tell you about the real Macua’s history and culture. And about how the local people have retained some of the old traditions.

This is your 100% private tour and I can easily build anything you want into the experience. So please get in touch and I'll shape an experience just for you! Also, during the tour, ask as many questions as you want, as a true local with local knowledge I’ll be more than happy to share my insights.

I left my high paying job overseas to come back to Hong Kong because the diversity and convenience here is just too good to miss out on!

My tours are all flexible and can be tailored to suit your interests and needs on the spot. Most of my tours are not attached to any businesses and we can also decide on the day and on the spot what you would like to do.

Hong Kong is a dynamic city that welcomes many tourists every year, but if you don't know what look out for them you will usually end up in the tourist traps. Come with me to discover the hidden nooks and crannies of Hong Kong and beyond that usually only locals who have lived here will know about.
