Some Advices:

1) The prices of the above tours are much higher than their usual prices (almost 2-3 times). The main reason of course is that these tours will be during the firework display. Therefore, unless you are very interested in the fireworks and want to take the harbor tours during the fireworks, you don’t need to consider the above harbor tours. [Know more about “Victoria Harbour Tours”]

2) Also please be aware that the quotas of these harbor tours are limited, if you want to experience this special firework event with this unique way, please contact with the companies and book as soon as possible while seats are still available.

3) If you unfortunately miss the chance of getting a ticket, don’t be unhappy. Usually on the 1st of October (China National Day), on the last day of a year (31st of December) and on the second day of Chinese Lunar Year, Hong Kong will also have fireworks display. You can consider to book it if you have a chance to visit Hong Kong by the time. [Know more about “Chinese New Year in 2013″]
