The Star Ferry is a passenger ferry service operator and tourist attraction in Hong Kong. Its principal routes carry passengers across Victoria Harbour, between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. The service is operated by the "Star" Ferry Company, which was founded in 1888 as the Kowloon Ferry Company, and adopted its present name in 1898. The fleet of twelve ferries operates two routes across the harbour, carrying over 70,000 passengers a day, or 26 million a year. Even though the harbour is crossed by railway and road tunnels, the Star Ferry continues to provide an inexpensive mode of harbour crossing. The company's main route runs between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui. It has been rated first in the “Top 10 Most Exciting Ferry Rides” poll by the Society of American Travel Writers (“SATW”) in February 2009.

    Great views of cityscape at night. Go for 7.15pm tour not 8.15 one. Light and music show is very poor and not worth extra cost

    Great place to take in the evening after a sunny day. Crossing over to central on HK island is very easy and quite an enjoyable ride plus cheap!

    Was okay, not to busy on the boat. Clean nice boat. Didn't have cold beers -1

    38 times more expensive than the regular Star Ferry - same boat but on the upper deck. The tour is fairly dull during the day. You're much better off just taking the normal commuting ferry (less than the price of an MTR ticket) which you could do several times to get views in both directions and still pay much less.

    This was not a genuine harbour tour as they skipped the commercial port which in Hong Kong terms is the main attraction. Sorry to say but nothing spectacular and a waste of time and money.
