THIS WAS A GREAT TOUR. STARTING WITH THE AMAZING TOUR GUIDE WHO MAD YOU FEEL RIGHTA AT HOME, HE SHARED A LOT OF INFORMATION . THIS GAVE US A GOOD SENSE OF WHAT OCCURED IN HONG KONG YEARS AGO. SEEING THE GIANT BUDA WAS GREAT. THE MEAL ALSO WAS GOOD, IF YOU LEFT HUNGRY IT WAS NOT THE CHEFS FAULT. THE RIDE DOWN THE CABLE CAR WAS ALSO VERY NICE. WE WERE FORTUNITATE ENOUGH TO GO THE WEEKEND OF THE DRAGON BOAT RACES WHICH TTHEYR WERE PREPARING FOR IN THE FISHING VILLAGE. THIS WAS QUITE AN EXPERIENCE.

Wonderful day trip that kept my interest throughout. Guide was great as were hotel transfers to main tour. Lunch was a pleasent suprise - didn't think vegetarian would be nice but it certainly was. Learnt lots about the culture and the Giant Buddha must be seen. Recommend to others visiting HK.

What a great day trip. The guide was fantastic and knew a lot, but really a lot, about hong-kong. Amazing landscapes and great group. You can't miss this Day-Trip.

Ryan, our tour guide on the island, was fantastic!! He shared his knowledge with us about Lantau island and we had a great time there! I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone who visits Hong Kong!

Good Morning. The Lantau Island Day Trip was fantastic. I enjoyed all the sights. The pick up and drop off service from our hotel was on time and without fault. We both felt that the guide on this day trip was not very in-tune with the tour group as she seemed to be told a dew things then left to our own to find our way. there was confusion by 2 groups of our tour as to meeting points. We eventually found each other, but the guide seem to indicate that it was our misunderstanding and not her lack of her clear instruction, and two different groups could not both get the instructions wrong!!
Otherwise all good.

One great day, the tour guide Ryan is an absolute credit to his company. There was nothing he didnt do for our tour group. A great day and well worth the tour.

We went on the Lantau Island and Giant Buddha day trip and had a great experience. Everything was very organized and lived up to their itinerary. The guide was easy to understand and gave us a lot of information. We had perfect weather and the food was delicious. The Giant Buddha was amazing, the monestary beautiful and Tai O village a step back in time. My only disappointment was the tram was closed for maintenance (which was noted before I signed up for the tour). I highly recommend the trip to Lantau and Viator and the tour company.

This was a great tour, especially the seeing the Giant Buddha and learning about the origins of Buddhism, very enthralling! Shame the cable car was under maintenance at the time but now that its back on I think it's definitely worth going on this tour! And the vegetarian buffet lunch was lovely!

A good break from the city if you have 3+ days. I enjoyed the meal and hearing about the history of the island. It's pretty relaxing and comprehensive.
