Lantau Island and Giant Buddha Day Trip from Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Tour was slick and well run with multiple hotel pickups being condolidated on to one bus and taken to central Ferry Terminal on Hong Kong island for 9:50 fast ferry to Lantau. Be warned - Lantau roads are winding and the trip from the port to the stilted fishing village can induce some travel sickness. Our guide Ryan, who is Lantau born and bred, was excellent throughout the tour, very knowledgable and interesting with a genuine interset in the isaland and its people. Fishing village is a good photo op, as is the giant Buddha atop the mountain (a good point of this tour is that it uses a small bus that can go all the way to the statue iteslf, avoiding the 280+ steps that most people have to climb). The Vegan lunch in the monestary is was surprisingly good and you then finish the tour with the spectacular cable car ride back down to the airport. Our whole family enjoyed the day.

Small-Group Historical Walking Tour of Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

Enjoyed this tour but it is slightly let down by the fact that so little of historic Hong Kong island remains intact. Those buildings that do survive all seemed to be covered in sheeting and scaffolding as they undergo renovation or conversion. This walking tour is not for the infirm, partly due to the gradients and partly due to the fact that the guide takes off at breakneck speed without really taking note if people are keeping up or not. The guide was reasonably knowldegable but did seem to lack the in depth knowledge that some of our other Hong Kong guides demonstrated. Enjoyed the tour but would not have it on a "must do" list.

Hong Kong Super Saver: Hong Kong Island Tour, Mongkok Market Tour plus Hop-On Hop-Off Bus Day Pass

Hong Kong, Hong Kong

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review

Thoroughly enjoyed this walking tour with our guide Stephen. he was very knowldegable and was able to answer all the questions we posed as we wandered through the various markets in the Mongkok area. A real added bonus is the Big Bus hop on - hop off bus ticket which enables you to tour the rest of Kowloon when the walking tour is finished. If you enjoy seeing the the "real" Kowlonn then this is a great way toi start. Great tour.

Madrid City Sightseeing and Royal Palace Tour

Madrid, Spain

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review

Interesting introduction to Madrid seeing most of the sites on the bus tour. Guide did very well with English, Spanish and French commentary. The Royal Palace at the end was stunning and again the guide did really well with her commentary. Only let down was some of the other torists in the group keeping us waiting at every stop!
