Definitely consider this tour if you're in Hong Kong. It offers a very insightful (and fascinating) glimpse into the 'other' China.
All main tours for major destinations are on the site for a reasonable price. It was very convenient to book everything in advance.
Once we met with our tour guide, the island was wonderful, and we could walk it easily. Our guide was extremely helpful at all times, and gave us great insight and history of our surroundings. Our Dim Sum lunch was excellent. We were delayed by 45 minutes for the pick up from our hotel, however the rest of the trip was fantastic.
This was a good tour. My main objective was to see the Changi Memorial.
This was a fun half day tour. I wold recommend it again to anyone who visit Hong Kong.
My husband wished to go to the old boarder to see the changes, so this was good for us, also the temple visit, but not long enough spent here, could have missed the market.
Cheung Chau was a different experience to the busy Hong Kong. It was relaxing to walk around and see how life was on this island. It was only a short visit to the temple then onto Prince of Pirates with an enjoyable lunch, then on the ferry back to Hong Kong Island. Our guide was very good.
Great guide - very informative and enthusiastic. Wouldn't go back for another visit but enjoyed the experience for what it was.
Poor trip with little interest. Guide was very hurried and trip was rushed. What was advertised as approximately six hours was completed in less than four! This may have been a blessing in disguise! Hong Kong is purely a shrine to shoppers with little cultural or historic interest. Current exchange rates and high local prices suggest thast H.K. has a difficult future.
Again we had to get a taxi to and from another hotel to pick up the mini bus for the tour and at the end, even though we requested pick up at our hotel, this added extra cost to the tour. Generally the tour was lack lustre but the guide was good. I found it unusual that the guide did not know that there was an event gong on at the Taoist temple. Although we were not allowed to go into the temple, the procession outside was worth the visit.
Unfortunately we were the only two on the Cheung Chau trip. The guide turned up on time. The ferry trips were interesting, the lunch was good, but unfortunately there wasn't much to see on Cheung Chau, and it rained most of the time. Not a recommended trip!

Doing what: Kowloon and New Territories Tour
Probably a little padded out, but worth having a look if you have the time.
The tour was far too long - would have preferred to go directly to lookout to New Territories and then back to hotel. The other stops were interesting but not worth the half hour or more spent at each one.
