My daughter and I had a wonderful time with Viator visiting Lantau Island, and the Giant Buddha. A really delicious lunch was served, great guide, very informative and the opportunity to see the beautiful people of China. Thank you for making our vacation a great success. W. Barham, Houston, Texas
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.
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.
This was lovely our guide was patient, pleasant and had knowledge of every single corner regarding the Island.
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.
Trip was splendid. What a change from crowded busy streets of hong Kong! The guide was informative too.
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.
This was a fantastic tour, felt it was really good value for money as saw so much.
