"The tour was terrific. My guide was very knowledgeable. We took the ferry from Aberdeen to Lamma Island, walked across the island, had Dim Sum, shopped a bit, and took the ferry back to Central, chatting the whole time.”

Originally from Macau, Adelina has lived and studied architecture in different parts of the world before settling in Hong Kong to pursue a career in architectural conservation in practice and research. She received her BA in Architecture from the University of Berkeley and has recently completely her MA at the University of Hong Kong. This architectural perspective allows her to add an additional layer to the Hong Kong that she describes during her walking tours. She takes pride and pleasure in discovering off beat areas and perceiving the city through both her lens and that of her clients. She is also a self-proclaimed milk tea and egg tarts connoisseur who is fascinated by the mystical charm of everyday Hong Kong.
Ed has lived in Hong Kong for more than 25 years. He witnessed the tail-end of the colonial era, the Handover to China in 1997, and the ups and downs of subsequent years, and currently works in publishing. He remains fascinated by Hong Kong, which he rates as “one of the world’s acupuncture points” and never takes a ferry, tram (streetcar) or a walk around town without seeing something to give him pause for thought.
