This tour was really good, we were a family of three who had the guide to ourselves. Ming told us more than we could find in a book about the history and culture of the people on the island and other relevant facts about the Chinese in general. I would recomend this to anyone who wants to see the real deal in a small village not the tourist hot spots that dont let you experience anothers way of life.
Excellent tour we were the only ones on the trip so received excellent service throughout
I highly recommend this tour. The local guide was friendly, efficient and good hearted. I enjoyed the sampan ride very much. The only downside was that the lunch was not very appetizing but you can buy buns at bakeries on the back streets.
Had a local tour guide from Cheung Chau who was very proud of his small part of the world. Easy to understand with a lovely demeanour. Our guide took us to a small cramped 2 storey restaurant, where he asked us what we wanted to try and then had it ordered. The food was served quickly. It was tasty, but we were all very conscious of the fact we didn't want to get ill, so we all used the hot green tea (supplied free) to wash our small bowls before putting the food into it. It was an experience one must try, and we can happily report, no-one out of the 4 in our group were ill. The place was also full of locals, which is a good sign.
I've spent a lot of time in Hong Kong over the years, but never visited some smaller islands. So I took an organized tour. In this case there were only three people on this tour myself, my partner, and another Australian woman, plus our tour guide. Well organized, punctual, and interesting history given of the island by our very friendly and pleasant tour guide. It was absolutely no fault of the tour guide, but it was very humid always at this time of year, so the tour could not be enjoyed to its fullest, simply because it's a walking tour of the island. I would recommend that it would be better to take this tour in the cooler months of maybe October November, or February March, unless you enjoy walking in high humidity. The included Dim Sum lunch was pleasant but don't expect 5-Star at a regular and fortunately air conditioned local restaurant. It seemed a pity and somewhat sad that our tour guide was not able, maybe not allowed ,to join the three of us for lunch. We almost felt somewhat embarrassed that he apparently although he did not indicate so, it's my assumption he was not supposed to eat with his guests. Seemed a bit strange to the three of us, and would have been a more pleasant lunch had he been able to join us. Never-the-less, it was a worthwhile and interesting 6 hour trip, we could have stayed longer on the island had we wished, but we all just wanted to get back into the air conditioned ferry back to Hong Kong, to a car-less island, where bicycles seem to be the main means of transport.
Excellent tour. Interesting and informative guide. Lunch was great.
This is a lovely small island - so different from Hong Kong itself. We had a great tour guide and a lovely lunch. The tour is definitely worth doing.
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.
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.
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!
