Get to know us

Book a private tour in Hong Kong with Donald and discover Hong Kong's hidden secrets! Hi I’m Donald, I grew up in Melbourne Australia. My father immigrated to Australia at the end of WW2 and met and married my mother who came off a dairy farm. As children we learnt about hard work, making it on your own and the importance of family and good friends. My family background tweaked my interest in history and travel, to see the places where my father grew up, the windmill that they used to run and to learn about his twin sister working for the resistance! Then I met Mini, my wife and mother to our 2 boys. Mini is from Kerala in India and so our life has been one of travel and adventure in all directions!

I have had a varied career always searching for the next opportunity. I completed an Arts Degree majoring in Linguistics and French followed by a Graduate Diploma in Banking and Finance. In between the Arts Degree and the Banking Degree I married Mini and her dad was pretty keen for me to embark on work that ‘looked more like a career’ so I delved into Banking and had a great time working for some regional banks and then a start up Finance Company.

Done with that challenge I joined my brother who was running our old family business manufacturing and retailing horse feed for the racehorse industry. This was an unexpected departure from banking but I loved the work environment and I loved spending time with my brother. Working with people and their horses and pets was a wonderful experience –they are always happy as long as their animal is happy!

The move to Hong Kong was my wife’s doing, she was offered a relocation with her job and we both thought that it sounded like a great adventure. Hong Kong immediately got under our skin and we just love the place, the people, the cultural diversity and the energy. We will talk about dragons during our tour; I am convinced that it is their majestic presence that gives Hong Kong a special energy! I am so keen for you to appreciate the ‘real’ Hong Kong and experience the temples and the food. I will show you how people spend money and make money. All of these aspects make up the fabric of Hong Kong.

On my days off I especially enjoy hiking in the hills in the New Territories and visiting some of the quiet  beaches of Sai Kung and Lantau. My son and I also love venturing out to Kau Sai Chau island for some golf on Hong Kong’s public golf course and sometimes ten pin bowling in Causeway Bay. I am also on the Building Committee for The Helena May which is a beautiful colonial building set up on Garden Road. The best thing about any and all activity here is that it always ends with great food in unexpected places.

I am so looking forward to sharing my experiences of Hong Kong with you!

 


 

Jessica, your Hong Kong personal tour guide

Hi, I’m Jessica Louise from Australia. I grew up on the coast just north of Sydney, but most recently called Cairns in Far North Queensland home before moving to Hong Kong with my husband.

At university I studied history and geography to become a High School Teacher. It was here that I discovered a love of travel and as part of my course studied Spanish in Ecuador, along with a few months backpacking and volunteering in Central and South America.

I returned to Australia to start my teaching career but quickly realised my travel bug was too strong, and since 2008 have been working in the tourism industry! I switched to life on the road as a Tour Manager with guiding multi day tours up and down the East Coast of Australia and hiking in the outback of the Northern Territory.  One of my most challenging but enjoyable working experiences came from leading 25 day trips in South East Asia, trekking around Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Prior to leaving Australia I worked with a small tourism business in Cairns developing private tours in the Far North, and with the Queensland Government developing tourism initiatives in one of the worlds most pristine rainforest World Heritage Areas.

My husband’s work as a pilot with Cathay Pacific brought us to Hong Kong. As you can imagine his career and our love of travelling work very well together and when he’s not working, we love to head off around Asia to explore, eat and scuba dive.

We live in Sai Ying Pun in the Western District of Hong Kong Island. It is a great colourful neighbourhood with a mix of old Chinatown and up and coming trendy cafés and bars. It is also close to the action of Central and Wan Chai so I spend a lot of time out with friends trying the latest restaurants and cocktail bars.

My passion for history, Asian culture and all things food made a perfect combination for working as a private tour guide.  I hope you will love the vibrant, cosmopolitan and fast paced city as much as I do, and I look forward to showing you the melting pot of culture and cuisine (as well as a few hidden secrets) in Hong Kong!


 

your private tour guide Rich, stood outside the IFC in Central.

Hi, I am Rich. I am originally from India and I have spent the past twenty something years living and working in Hong Kong. I am very proud to call Hong Kong my home. It is the city where I choose to bring up my wonderful family and the city that I can not imagine ever leaving.

I live in Lantau Island amidst hills and by the beach. Every morning I am woken by the melody of birds chirping and the branches of the trees brushing against my windows. It’s not the image of Hong Kong that most people imagine, but it is a Hong Kong that exists. Did you know that 40% of Hong Kong’s land is designated country parks? And that only about 25% of the land is developed and built on? I am one of the relatively few that has chosen to set up home outside of the city and townships. I enjoy the outdoors and love hiking. Cooking in one of my passions and gives me great pleasure. I believe that gardening is therapeutic and have a small herb garden. Of course Hong Kong is geographically small so it doesn’t take me long to travel into the hustle and bustle of the city and re-immerse myself into the hectic day-to-day life.

I‘ve seen Hong Kong grow to the amazing city that it is. After the handover of Hong Kong back to China, Hong Kong progressed further. Most importantly I noticed how Hong Kong people’s attitudes change to become very international. Hong Kongers, as we call them, are exceptionally warm and friendly. I might be biased but I believe that Hong Kong is the best place to live, work and raise a family. Like every city, it comes with its challenges, but if you are adaptive, you will succeed. I pride myself on keeping a positive mental attitude in all adversity and so far I have not failed to make the most of every challenge and opportunity that this city has thrown at me.

Hong Kong is beautiful and has an extremely rich, cultural heritage. Besides it also has the weird and obscure that can make you cringe and wince and that adds to the excitement of being immersed in the city. I have done fairly extensive research into Chinese dry foods and traditional Chinese medicine. It is a topic that I find truly fascinating. I have noticed that although the various tourist sites in Hong Kong are spectacular, it is this topic that most of my guests are also extremely intrigued by and interested in. Bringing the abstract to life is my forte.

To give you a little more background on myself I passed a Diploma in International Travel and Tourism Management way back in 1984. I started my career working in hotels, generally on the nightshift. At the same time I was able to complete my graduation, majoring in Arts, Psychology and Sociology as well as Computer Programming.

In 1992 I came to Hong Kong in search of a job as a programmer. During that period several computer languages were becoming obsolete with the invention of newer and more powerful ones, hence my training was not as current as it could have been. Since Hong Kong is a financial center I decide to change the course of my career.

For over two decades, I have been employed with different financial organizations and have passed several exams in Insurance and Financial Services both in the US and Hong Kong. I am currently a registered Financial Advisor in Hong Kong and I have a few select clients who I work with. I consider myself very fortunate to have enough time to dedicate to my tour guiding profession, which has become my main passion.

Over that same period of time I brought up my family. I have two daughters. The elder is studying in Parson New School of Design in New York and is an intern at the UN. My younger daughter is doing her final year in the English School’s Foundation in Hong Kong and will go to Rhode Island next year to study.

For me, tour guiding is probably the best profession in the world. I take my job very seriously and since I stated guiding I got myself Emergency First Aid certified. Furthermore I continuously research and update myself on numerous topics of interest across a wide range of subjects.

I like to say that when I lead a tour I am delivering the best show on earth. That’s what I aim for anyway. I want to give each and every one of my guests a perfect day and I ensure that everyone who takes a tour with me will return back to their homes with an absolutely fantastic memory of Hong Kong.

So here I am. A big, massive welcome to the city that I love!
