A visitor should take this tour to see how rural undeveloped Lantau Island exists next to the major city of Hong Kong. The visit to the fisherman's village is remarkable as is the stroll through the local fisherman's market. The Buddha is HUGE and the lunch at the monastery very nice (its a large operation with hundreds of people eating). The ride back on the cable car is awesome. It goes for miles with breathtaking views of the airport and Hong Kong along the way.

We had a great day on the tour to Lantau. Ben was a good guide. He provided lots of information and helped us enjoy the day. Tai-O fishing village was fascinating. The Big Buddha exceeded expectations and provided some great photo opportunities. The monastery was also very interesting and the vegetarian lunch included was surprisingly good. I'm not a vegetarian fan but I was surprised at the quality and variety provided. The cable car ride down provided some grat views.

Excellent tour - everything we expected and more. The vegetarian lunch at the Po Lin Monastery was delicious. We had just come off a Main Land China tour where we had a group of vegetarians with us and the food they were getting was pretty awful. The tour to the fishing village was very interesting as well. Highly recommended.

Excellent tour through Lantau Island that allows you to see how the locals lived many years ago. Lunch at the monestary was excellent

Really glad we took the tour, it takes away all stress and planning so we could sit back and relax. Wish I had more time to do more trips while we were there.

This is a definite must do if you have the time in HK. I had previously visited the Giant Buddha on a prior trip to HK but this is an extremely well packaged tour. Though the Giant Buddha is supposely the highlight of the tour, all other parts of the tour were worthwhile experiences. There was not one dull moment on this trip. The Tai Oi fishing village which includes a sampan ride is a much better experience than Aberdeen. The vegetarian lunch at the Monastery was excellent. I never thought vegetarian can taste so good. I strongly recommend this to everyone and it's definitely worth every penny!

Great trip, very well organised and excellent tour guides. The perfect trip to see a great view and understanding of Hong Kong, highly recommended. We were thinking of the half day tour, but were very pleased we booked this one. A real mixture of Lantau Island beaches, scenery, fishing village and trip to see the houses on stilts, all to be topped off with a great trip to the Giant Budda with lunch in the monestary and a fantastic cable car ride with the most stunning views before being met by our final guide to drop us back at our hotel. 5 stars!!

Great trip. The guide spoke English fluently which really helped. They picked us up and dropped us off at the hotel which was incredibly convenient. The fishing village is OK. The visit to see the Buddha statue and the cable car ride back was totally awesome. The vegetarian lunch at the Monastery was so much more delicious than I had expected.
The only modification I would suggest is that the guide provide a bit more time for shopping at the Npong Ping village. I had really liked a couple of Chinese style tops which I would have purchased had I had some time to try them on. This last leg of the trip was rushed a bit much. I would suggest that they give everyone at least a half hour for shopping before riding the cable car back to Kowloon.
Overall, this trip is definitely a must do for anyone who is visiting Hong Kong for the first time.
