    "I had the pleasure to join the first LGBTI Walk Hong Kong tour. As a member of this community and a Hong Kong resident for close to 15 years I wasn’t sure what to expect and if I would learn anything new. I not only discovered some facts about Hong Kong’s LGBT history that were new to me but I also spent an amazing few hours with a very enthusiastic and knowledge guide. I would recommend this tour not only to visitors to our wonderfully city rich in stories and history but to anybody LGBTI or ally who want to know more about the men, women and transgender Hong Kongers who created a powerful and vibrant community in not the easiest of environments."

    "What a pleasure to join the very first LGBT walk-in HK tour! I am amazed by the research and knowledge delivered by the tour guide and her team. Filled with interactive activities and small adventure, I am glad to see the hidden gem and hear some stories of the local LGBT community, such as the story of Mid-Levels Escalator. If you want to know more about LGBT in Hong Kong, want to widen your perspective, or just even want to have a taste of nightlife of local LGBT, this LGBT walking tour is surely on your must-do list. You are not going to meet HOCC and Anthony Wong (local gay icons), but I am sure you are going to meet passionate tour guide and LGBT friends and allies in this remarkable friendly walking tour."
