Equipment: Binoculars are useful for observing birds and insects in the wild. If you have your own binoculars, please bring them. If not, binoculars can be provided for the duration of the walk.
Please provide us with a contact phone number in Hong Kong, or the name of the hotel where you are staying, plus the name the booking is made in.
We need notification of any cancellation before the morning of your tour, as no-shows do inconvenience our other clients. It is also important that you ring us if you are delayed.
We recommend you wear either robust walking shoes or trainers. Casual sandals or open shoes are not suitable for the trails in Tai Po Kau.
Sun and rainfall can be intense and a hat is recommended. During the winter season (November - March) temperatures can drop with a chilling wind, so a sweater/fleece is advisable. During the wet season (April - September) a waterproof jacket is recommended. In warmer months (May - October) it is advisable to carry a spare T-shirt or other garment to change into at the end of the day.
Insect repellent is recommended, especially during the warmer months in Tai Po Kau.
Please notify us of any medical conditions that we should be aware of. We will assume clients have their own medications for asthma or known illnesses.
Payment can be made in cash at the start of the tour, or by electronic money transfer pre-tour. Prices quoted in Hong Kong dollars. HK$7.75 = US$1.00.
