Good reviews help Frank to recollect the busy Lunar New Year
Chinese New Year holidays were the busy moment for Frank the tour guide in the past.
Frank left home early to serve clients on the Lunar New Year Day.
Frank once helped his former employer, the closed travel agent Jetway Express Ltd., to conduct the Lunar New Year Seafood Dinner Fireworks Harbor Cruise on the Second Day of New Year with his colleagues.
The days were long but happy!
However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic in 2021, Frank is going to celebrate the new year at home with families.
Frank is going to show his busy Chinese New Year working days in 2019 and 2020 through clients’ good reviews.
Frank hopes that he can make good use of clients’ time and help them to dodge the big crowds in his easy Hong Kong private tour during Chinese New Year in the future.
5: “Frank was a terrific tour guide for our group…”

|5 Review: Frank was a terrific tour guide for our group. He is very knowledgeable about the history and culture of Hong Kong. We toured during the super busy time of lunar new year and Frank was a master at knowing how and when to maximize our time and minimize the big crowds. Riding a small boat through Aberdeen harbor was memorable as was a delicious dim sum lunch where we were the only non-locals. I highly recommend Frank as your guide, you will leave with a great experience.(Browse private tour page)|
|Frank’s response: Thank you very much for your five stars review, Eric! Our good planning can help clients to dodge the big crowds and win more valuable sightseeing time. This is especially important in the crowded Hong Kong during the busy Chinese New Year time. Hope you get the easy private car tour experience from our service!(Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)|
Normally Chinese New Year is the “super busy time”, especially in the afternoons of the public holidays.
It is essential and important to buy tickets in advance, book the table early, start the private tour early and keep on checking the traffic.
So Frank can dodge the big crowds at the attractions and make good use of clients’ time to offer clients the easy private tour experience.

|5 Review: Frank did a wonderful job accommodating our interests; despite the fact that we were in Hong Kong during the very busy Chinese New Year celebration, he was able to customize our tour so we could see all the sights we wanted. He was so helpful and informative; we learned so much during our tour. He made our trip to Hong Kong very enjoyable.

|Frank’s response: Thank you for your five stars rating, Susan! Actually this is not a customization. We try our best to change the tour program for you at the last minute. Thank you for the private car driver, taxi driver, waiters and special luck from the Chinese New Year of the PIG, this Hong Kong Lantau Island full day private car tour is a success again!(Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)|
Frank remembers that client Susan booked the full day Hong Kong and Kowloon private city tour through internet first.
She just told Frank at the hotel lobby that she wanted to go to Lantau Island’s Big Buddha!
If you did not prepare in advance during Chinese New Year for a Lantau Island journey, it was very possible that you waste a lot of valuable time on getting Lantau taxi, waiting in long line for cable car, dining etc.
Frank just tried his best to call Lantau taxi driver Simon for help, book Ngong Ping Cable Car tickets and get the lunch table.
By the help of others and good luck, the Lantau private tour for Susan was prefect.
Frank still remembers Susan’s and her families’ happy smiles during the local dim sum lunch.
5: “Thanks to Frank and his tour, we had a great day…”

|5 Review: Frank’s tour was excellent!! He organized and arranged alternative transportation to tour the Big Buddha and monastery at virtually no notice due to ongoing critical Heath and medical crisis, HOWEVER this did not affect the quality of his tour for our group of 4 people. Frank is very knowledgeable and informative regarding the history, culture and development of Hong Kong which he provides in a positive way. Thanks to Frank and his tour, we had a great day!!!

|Frank’s response: Thank you Stuart! Ngong Ping Cable Car stops the service to help to stop the spread of the virus. We do send email to inform clients and arrange the alternative transportation to keep the easy private tour experience. We do learn from the Chinese Central Government, which has strong coordination, organization and mobilization power, to rearrange the program to keep our tour quality. We shall overcome the new virus! Welcome to our city Hong Kong and our country China when everything is back to normal!(Message Frank to plan YOUR private tour)|
Actually from the riots in 2019, Frank the tour guide has cancelled a lot of bookings, rescheduled the dates of tour and re-routed the private tour itineraries.
When the Covid-19 outbreak began in early 2020, Frank already has lot of experience to handle the sudden changes.
Frank is glad to see that client Mr. Holmes was pleased with the transportation rearrangement in this private tour, which was one of the last tours before the pause of international tourism.
Frank hopes he can serve you in 2022’s Lunar New Year in Hong Kong
Before the coming of the New Year of Ox, Frank the tour guide is no need to handle the booking due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.
Frank is now focusing on helping his parents to clean the flat, buy new year delicacies and choose the fresh flowers to say goodbye to the rat and welcome the ox.
Frank is also blogging to introduce Hong Kong to old and future clients.
Like the comments of client Mr Holmes, Frank’s blogging shows that Frank sees the current situation “in a positive way”.
This “long holiday” can help Frank to accumulate more life experience.
Frank will have more stories to share with his clients in his Hong Kong private tour in the near future.
