There were four of us who travelled on this tour and we all enjoyed it immensely. It was so interesting to drive around this large island and find that it was not densely populated.... The big Budda was amazing and the vegetarian meal we had was a delightful surprise...... Only disappointing thing was we didn't get to ride the cable car as it was closed for maintenance, otherwise a great day......
This tour was excellent covering the temple and history of the Budda. I would recommend it but advise passengers there is a lot of walking and stairs to see everything without missing picturesque parts of the tour by riding in the bus as the alternative. Lunch was interesting and plentiful.. The floral gardens around the temple were beautiful and the tour guide was very helpful.
We had a large group as the cable car was being closed for maintenance from the following day, Ryan the guide looked after us very well.
This tour was fantastic, a must do when in Hong Kong, especially enjoyed the cable car ride it is a one of a kind ride ;)
The organisation was excellent from picking us up from our hotel in the morning to dropping us back again at the end of the trip. Our guide Ryan was very knowledgeable and very proud of his island. We enjoyed the meal in the monastery and felt that the day was well balanced with free and guided time.
When we arrived at our accomodation our pick up voucher was waiting for us at the Hotel which was great. The pick up time was right on schedule with very friendly staff. All the transport was excellent and the guide very friendly, funny and informative. We would not hesitate to recommend this to other people. Thank you.
Met at Hotel and taken to transfer point to meet up with local rep from Lantau, Ryan. Ryan was fabulous full of interesting facts and information about the local area aswell as Hong Kong as a whole. Highlight was the fishing village with short boat trip to view around houses on stilts (see how the 'real' people live) The Buddha is impressive and Ryan explained fully the religious significance so we could appreciate the history and impact this has on their culture. Cablecar ride rounded the day off nicely - magnificent views. The trip was well thought through and is definitely worth experiencing.
Enjoyed the History Of the island And the visit to the giant Buddha. tor guide was great never felt rushed. would recommend your company and this to anyone. we actually booked 3 tours with your company in Hong Kong. always fantastic!
Husband and I enjoyed the tour, our guide, Ryan shared many stories and info on local customs and culture. Beautiful scenery and good food.. well worth the money..
best tour ever, thank you viator, everything was on time, we had a great time
Booked tickets in UK a few days before travelling and from that moment all ran smoothly. Tickets were delivered to our hotel, pick-up was punctual, our guide Ben was friendly and informative, lunch was great. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole trip, especially the Giant Buddha and the amazing cable car ride.
Perfect day, great guide, and what a spectacle Buddha was. Just breath-taking. The Monastery was wonderful, and full of atmosphere. A long day, that was full of tradition, information, and warm people. The traditional pole houses of Tai O were also interesting. Just a wonderful day. Thank you.
An enjoyable tour and good value for money. The history of the Giant Buddha was very interesting and the meal was excellent. The highlight was the cable car ride back from the Island.
The day started with some confusion over collection from our hotel but this was quickly resolved. Ryan the tour guide was excellent and we really enjoyed the tour. The lunch which was included was great. If it is cold wrap up warm, I never knew Hong Kong could be so cold!
