Tours by local guides Canny Lau and Shermone Yan
I am Canny and I am a truly Hong Kong local. Born and educated here, I have witnessed our city change from a British colony to a Chinese city.
I have worked in tourism for more than 20 years, and am still passionate about it. As Steve Jobs famously said, “The only way to do great work is to love what you do.” I started by escorting tours to China and Southeast Asia countries and guiding tours in Hong Kong at the same time.
Now, in addition to regular tours of Hong Kong, I also guide specialist tours like Feng Shui, Tea Appreciation, Tai Chi etc.I love my city and am deeply immersed in Chinese culture, traditions, and history. I am a foodie, too ! Yam cha, dim sum, wonton noodles and roast goose are my favourites.
Come join me for a tour of Hong Kong! I can’t wait to share the fun and stories in exploring the fascinating side of Hong Kong — where truly East meets West.
I was raised in a public housing estate in Hong Kong and studied hard to complete my tertiary education during the days of British rule. Through my local eyes, you can definitely explore stories and history behind those must-see icons and secret spots of my dynamic city. As a student studying Chinese medicine and acupuncture, I am keen to share Chinese health concepts and values through different interesting or adventurous food tastings, thematic market exploration and different religious practices. In my spare time, I study tea, ink painting and calligraphy. With a family of my own, I know very well how to lead a family tour.
