Very nice experience to visit the island and all the sights. Guide was funny and very informative.
This was a superb trip which met and even exceeded our expectations. It offered a great variety of experiences, from the fishing village of Tai O, with its quaint houses on stilts, to the magnificent Giant Buddha and Po Lin monastery. We also enjoyed spectacular views both from the peaks and also from the cable car- the longest such ride we have ever experienced. The trip was enhanced by a knowledgeable local guide (Ben) who brought a personal flavour to the outing. A very memorable outing, well worth the money.
Really enjoyed this tour, especially since I've visited Hong Kong many times. The knowledge that our tour guide, Ben, had was very educational. I did not know the history or current conditions of Lantau Island. The cable car was amazing and appreciated that we did not have to climb the 284 steps to the Buddha in the heat!
Loved how different form of transport is arranged to and fro. Ferry to the island and cable ride back. Fetched to and fro from our hotel lobby even though its not listed in their pickup locations. Guide was great with her knowledge, no pressure whatsoever. Maybe how everyone is on time really helped. Well organised.
great day out, Buddha was huge, just like photo. meal served was excellent .
Great tour with a great tour guide. The highlight of my trip to Hong Kong.
Loved it. Big Buddha was a great sight. Enjoyed the veggie meal at monastery . Cable car was amazing.
Great tour. You get to experience Lantau Island like an insider. Highly recommended if you have the time.
Well organised, informative and good value. Tour guide was knowledgeable and helpful.
our guide was very informative, sweet and kind, there was no rushing about and you felt very safe and secure.
Fantastic tour. Our guide and driver were locals from the Tai O Fishing Village,and were known by everyone. Their passion for the island and their ability to tell its story was enthralling . The day we were there the Giant Buddha was shrouded in cloud which made this amazing idol even more mystical. The island is covered with lush vegetation and a large population of cows abandoned by previous farmers,deer and water buffalo, they roam freely, all protected. The island is a paradise, and just across the water from Hong Kong, it's a "must do".
This is amazing.....The trip from start to stop was great. Out tour guide was entertaining and supplied us with great facts of the island. The cable car ride was also amazing even though it was raining the experience was fantastic. Thank you Viator for your great service. When we checked in to the hotel the tickets were there.
