Everything very good, but feel we should have been warned about tofu lunch. Although not allergic , would not eat it if known.
Great day,great value, unbelievable meal and fantastic cable car journey. Add to this knowledgeable and pleasant tour leader and well run day. Will recommend this to all on our return home.
Wonderful day out - the tour rep was excellent. The longest cable car ride I have ever been on anywhere in the world - breathtaking (literally!) at times.
Exscellent day trip. Nice small group, our guide Ben was very pleasant, everything ran to time and was as promised. The lunch was our only disappointment, of very poor quality and any soft drinks were charged as extra. 'Service' was extremely poor.
Great tour and very informative guide. Experienced coach driver. Lunch at the Monastery was fantastic.
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.
