What to expect

Take your chance to experience an exotic brew of old and new that constitutes modern Hong Kong! See for yourself that the city is much more than just bright lights and skyscrapers and get a new appreciation for this financial mecca with its slow, traditional side as well as the frenetic futurism it's most known for.

You'll start your tour by exploring some of the city’s oldest markets, which are nothing less than the cornerstone of Hong Kong’s history and present-day identity. Witness Hong Kong’s hardworking past in the Western Market, the Ginseng and Bird Nest trading hubs, and the Herbal Medicine Quarter. Then, you'll head out down Hollywood Road with its countless antique shops selling everything from Ming vases to Han Dynasty war horse potteries. You'll also visit Cat Street, originally home to the city’s black market, now an open-air curio market. Next up, Tai Ping Shan, one of the most modern parts of the city packed with new and contemporary shops and galleries. The combination of European style influences and traditional Hong Kong streetscapes has created some fascinating neighborhoods in SoHo and NoHo, providing a unique narrative and local experience.

One of the main highlights of this tour will be a fascinating ride on the world’s longest outdoor escalator, after which you'll make your way to Central, the major business district of the city. This is where modern skyscrapers dominate the cityscape, representing Hong Kong as an integral international financial hub. You'll leave the tour with a new appreciation for the city that has switched from old to new within such a short period of time.

And, because Porto Santo's beaches are wonderfully uncrowded, it's the perfect place to give it a go.

    Porto Santo RIB Speedboat Experience

    There's no better way to describe this experience than as an adventure at sea. Leaving the port behind you, you'll head out into the azure waters where your captain will steer a course for the islet of Ilhéu de Cima. The boat is fully seated, so you can enjoy the passing scenery as we go, or even watch for signs of dolphins and whales that may join us along the way. We'll cruise along the south coast and drop anchor just off the islet Ilhéu de Baixo where you'll get the chance to grab the on-board snorkelling equipment and jump right in.
