Experience the thrill and excitement of horse racing in Hong Kong at the famous Happy Valley Racecourse. In this 3-hour Happy Valley-themed private walking tour, you will be transported back to 1846, when the British troops arrived in Hong Kong, set up base, and started racing horses. As you travel across Hong Kong Island from Central, through Wan Chai, and to Happy Valley, your expert guide will give you insight into what Hong Kong was like in those early colonial days and show what present-day life is like for the locals today.

This tour starts at 3.30 pm at Central Station (Statue Square) and finishes at 6.30 pm at Happy Valley Race Course. The first race of the night is at 7.15 pm. If you would like your guide to pick you up from your hotel lobby simply book the tour option with a hotel meet up. This tour is only available on race nights.
