The tour was good. The guide was good and easy to understand.
We had a good tour guide who knew her country well.
An interesting half day tour followed by a very good lunch. Our guide was very informative and gave us a useful insight into life in Kong Kong. The visit to the Yuen Yuen Institute was the high point for us.
While we enjoyed the tour itself, it was spoiled by the guide, Roger, whining about his wife and boss. Its a pity he couldn't separate his professional and private lives and concentrate on making his guest's trip a happy and entertaining one.

This trip was interesting, although the guide was a little hard to understand. One of the stops was just on the roadside, and we did not stop at the racecourse, even though it was not a race day. Not quite as advertised, but the lunch was very good.
The tour guide was very friendly.
I waited for the advertised Haka village visit, additional to the walled village visit.This did not happen and was the single reason I chose this particular tour.Why was this not included please?My sister had been on the tour before and recommended it because of the Haka village visit.
Visiting the walled village was interesting but not as historical as an original Haka village..
The food was terrible and the setting was worse.(A 'popular' restaurant ...maybe in the 1950s?) There was no substantial food for the two vegetarians.
Generally a good tour except the awful admission of the most interesting ADVERTISED village!I feel as if I should be given another ticket to redo that part of the tour.
The first bus was old and shabby, and I could not find a seat with an operational seatbelt. The guide was very interesting as were the places visited.

It was nice trip overall. Organized, and very friendly guides. Felt safe. If you are a Christian, this trip might be a little overwhelming. I didn't enjoy too much of Buddism tour. But, it was an interesting trip overall.
80% of the tour is a waste of time - will not recommend it (not too sure why it gets such high rating). Only the Fan Ling Village is worth to have a look (visit there yourself-better)/opt for Cheung Chau (do it yourself). However, Marco (tour-guide) is great - informative and helpful.
Our guide was great and very informative. Enjoyed the temple stop but found the others disappointing. I was picturing a cute little fishing village, not a fish farm that we stopped to look at from the shore. There was no view from the stop on the mountain, which our guide told us was normal, and the waterfall was very, very small. If you have time to kill and want a day out of the city you might consider it, but go knowing the temple is the only really interesting stop.
Gigi was great, but the content of the tour could have been better. I had particularly chosen this tour as I wanted to see the fishing village. However this turned out to be just standing on the waters edge looking out to where a few boats were moored. Very disappointing. I found the tour to be very expensive and the lunch was bland.
We weren't leaving until the evening so decided on this half day tour. I must admit it wasn't really what was advertised. It consisted of stopping at the scheduled "places of interest" usually for only a few mins as this is all they warranted, then get back on the bus and driving to the next one. There were no "colourful stalls" to look or shop at, the bird sanctuary consists of an island with some local birds that you can barely see and the fishing village is just a walk down a pier. You can't even see the submerged fish breeding cages as they're submerged! We were the only ones of a group of 9 that opted for lunch, we were dropped off at a restaurant more like a senior citizens club and collected about an hour later, the food was nice though. If you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, this is a decent enough option but for interesting sites I would say no. We have booked several Viator tours over several countries and this is the first one that I would not recommend.
