Big Foot Tour – Keeping the Customer Satisfied – As Featured in The Province

It’s been a great month of happy news as Big Foot Tour hits the press again! This time round, we are very honoured to find our Hong Kong walking tours featured in The Province. Click on to read about the first-hand experience of Mike Grenby, who went on a Big Foot Tour led by our founder, Ski Yeo!

Keeping The Customer Satisfied – Hotel and Walking Tour Rewarded for Paying Special Attention to what Travellers Want

“We also went on a walking tour with Yeo, and were impressed by her willingness to change the itinerary on a moment’s notice, and her constant attention to make sure one of us didn’t go astray and get lost in the ever-present crowds.”

“We don’t make you wear the same caps, or follow a flag and herd you along, ” she said with a laugh. “We love keeping our walks happy and intimate.”

“That personal touch is what makes travel experiences so memorable.”

Yes, at Big Foot Tour, we love doing all we can to design a walking tour specially for you, basing the itinerary entirely around your interests. Going beyond the glam and glitter of this city, our tours focus on providing you with an insider’s perspective, so that you can see and experience everyday life of Hong Kong yourself. Here’s where you can find out more about the kind of tours that we offer: Travel like a Local.  If you would like to explore the real Hong Kong, please get in touch with us and book your Hong Kong Walking Tour today!

Hong Kong Guide : SoCO – We Live

War. Starvation. Migration. Instability.
A speck of dust in the great 30s and 40s.
With a will not of their own; in the turbulence of history,
All assembled in the past shattered into nought.
Looking back,
They lived a life which spanned over generations.
Asking for little in an uneasy life, save for
The simplest, the most vital, struggling to show
We live.

If you are looking for something different and meaningful to do in Hong Kong, check out this photo exhibition organized by SoCO – a non-profit welfare organization in Hong Kong. The exhibition, titled “We Live”, seeks to help the public understand more about the life of grass roots elderly people living in poverty.

Period of Exhibition: 30th January 2015 to 29th March 2015

Venue: 1/F, 269 Yu Chau Street, Sham Shui Po (right next to Sham Shui Po MTR Station, exit C2)
