Walk in Hong Kong is honored to have been commissioned by the Commissioner for Heritage’s Office (CHO) of the Development Bureau to coordinate and organize more than 40 “Star Guided Tours” as part of the “Heritage Vogue · Hollywood Road” carnival, which returned after a 4-year hiatus on November 20th, 2022.
The “Star Guided Tours” featured a diverse group of guest speakers, including academics from prestigious universities such as Hong Kong Baptist University, City University of Hong Kong, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, and Hong Kong Design Institute, as well as professional members of esteemed organizations such as the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors, and the Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists, gallery managers from the Hong Kong Art Gallery Association, and curators from the Antiquities and Monuments Office. Participants had a wonderful time touring the historic buildings and cultural hotspots in Central and Sheung Wan while listening to the engaging commentaries by these expert guest speakers.
Preparation for the event began in May, and included reaching out to guest speakers, coordinating with site management companies to arrange visits, obtaining necessary government permits, and recruiting qualified tour guides. Walk in Hong Kong also managed an online booking site for the event, and all 40 tours were fully booked on the launch day.
The success of these tours is a testament to the dedication and hard work of the Walk in Hong Kong team. To learn more about other corporate events coordinated and organized by Walk in Hong Kong, please visit https://walkin.hk/corporate/

They were delighted to have the opportunity to tour these iconic locations and gain deeper insights from our expert guest speakers, who provided engaging and informative commentaries throughout the tour. The combination of visiting these historic sites and hearing from knowledgeable speakers truly added to the richness of the experience.
