On these tours you can also experience the rural villages. There are also several walking tours organized in Hong Kong, called Walk Hong Kong. The tours are three hours and take in markets and heritage buildings. Hikes can also be booked on Hong Kong Island, from Victoria Peak to Aberdeen, and along the Dragon's Back trail. Hikes are also offered on Lantau and Lamma islands, and to East Sai Kung Country Park in the New Territories. The Big Bus Company is a hop on off bus servicing Hong Kong.
