The places visited were beautiful, very interesting and varied. The guide was charming and excellent.
If you want to see a less urban side of Hong Kong this is really a good choice! I also enjoyed the historical information that our tour guide told us about! I think the highlights of the day were the "Bride's Pool" and the waterfall in Tai Po, and the Yuen Yuen Institute.
We saw an entirely different side to Hong Kong. The institute we visited was interesting and spectacular. Seeing waterfalls and wetlands was fascinating. The guide was very informative, and the lunch was great as it was at a restaurant not used by tourists.
It was a great chance to see the other side of Hong Kong, the green, lush and "older" ways, although they aren't so old if they still live like that. Our tour guide was fabulous! Spoke English, was very personable and knowledgeable of the area. She had amazing stories. She catered to the group's diversity of interests. It was well worth it, and I would highly recommend it!
We really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was so friendly and informative. He even took photos of me in front of landmarks on my camera. New territories are beautiful; the trip is well worth the money. One tip: don't bother with the lunch if you don't want to mingle with the other tourists. Some of ours were quite rude.
Excellent tour made all the better by the knowledgeable guide. The whole trip is good value if only for showing the contrast between the city and rural areas. If you only do one tour whilst in HK, this is the one to do.
Very informative with knowledgeable and friendly guide who really showed that she loves and cares for the area. We accomplished a great deal during the tour but never felt rushed and were never pressured to buy anything. It turned out we even had a few minutes extra time and made an extra stop. The lunch was authentic, delicious and much more than anyone could eat. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience and learn a great deal of fun and interesting things in a relatively short amount of time excellent value for the money!
Tour guide was from the area and was very well informed, speaking excellent English. The journey and the photo viewpoints are the highlight although unfortunately we went on a misty day. We opted for the added lunch option which was plentiful and good quality. Overall very satisfied and would recommend for people who want to see the greener side of Hong Kong.
The trip was very interesting. The tour guide was excellent providing commentaries about the culture and history of the new territories
this was a great way to get out of the city and see some of the country side, Marco was very informative and funny although the jokes lost a bit in translation. the bus was a bit small but did the job, we had a small group of people which was good not over crowded. we did the full day tour with lunch included this was well worth it lunch was great.
We an interesting tour - great to get out into the country side and the tour guide was excellent
It gives a perspective on rural Hong Kong, in great contrast with the urban area; it includes a stop at an interesting religious site. Overall, worth taking.
Very interesting tour and our guide was a mine of information and extremely entertaining! Our tour ended with a superb Chinese lunch - a real taste of Hong Kong! Highly recommend the day!
Very interesting tour with a very good English guide. If we had known that the only difference between the full day and half day tour was lunch back in Kowloon at the end of the tour we would have opted out of lunch (but it was very good!)
We loved the tour and found our guide thorough and knowledgeable. She did, however, talk quite fast making it challenging to hear everything she was saying. We particularly liked the Yuen Yuen Institute, the walled community, Luk Keng, and the beautiful (Rotary-supported) park. We were surprised that the lunch came at the end of the tour and were very glad we had eaten a substantial breakfast. Even so, the lunch was delicious and included many new tastes for us. All in all, it was a wonderful day that created many beautiful memories. Thank you so much.
A great day out. A little bit foggy on the day but still great value.

A great tour and one i'd recommend if you want to see another side to hong kong. The guide was friendly and informative.
A great tour and a nice change from the high rises usually associated with Hong Kong. Our tour guide was fantastic and added her personal experiences to the tour commentary which made the destinations really come alive. A great tour for anyone who wants to see the other side to Hong Kong
Good group tour which got us away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Hong Kong. Transportation and guide were excellent.
