About Walk in Hong Kong
Walk in Hong Kong is the city’s leading cultural enterprise. We specialize in curating memorable experiences — be it tours or immersive events, in-person or virtual — that tell the mesmerizing stories of our bustling metropolis.
Build something that Hong Kong has never seen before.
Walk in Hong Kong began life in 2013 as a startup aiming to introduce walking tours to Hong Kong. Over the past few years, we have created a number of firsts — we have led Hong Kong’s first wheelchair-friendly walking tour, designed Hong Kong’s first gamified walking tour, and organized Hong Kong’s first secondary school level architectural education programme. Entrepreneurial spirit is deeply embedded in the company’s DNA.
Nurses, architects, government officials, academics... Our tour guides come from all walks of life, yet they share the same passion — telling you the city's mesmerizing tales (we do have a certified hypnotist on board!) and their own equally fascinating stories.

Born into a family of natural storytellers, Haider grew up spellbound by the tales he heard from Hong Kong’s past century. He stalks the city’s streets in an imagined time machine, bent on resurrecting fabled buildings from the ashes of time. Whimsical and wry, his walks are a jukebox of Hong Kong’s eccentricities.
