Lantau Island is a bit isolated; so going with a tour guide is key. Our guide Peter was very helpful in teaching us about the area, Hong Kong's history, and made this a great experience. The hotel pick up arrived on time, and the tour was very efficient. Perfect for people who are only in Hong Kong for a few days and want to visit an area outside of the busy city. The Big Buddha was breathtaking - great views especially with the cable car. It was really foggy when we went but we still got to enjoy the views. The vegetarian lunch was ok -- good food but I wish there were heavier options. The fishing village, temples, and Big Buddah - you definitely get your money's worth!

Our tour guide was good and everything was nice and efficient, but I wish we had more free time at the stops. The fishing village was super interesting but we had no free time.

We had a fun day but doing a group is harder than a private tour. I will do private tours in the future but it was a good day.

This was a fun day and a well-paced trip with a good balance of guided time and free time. The hotel pick-ups and transfer to the ferry were efficient and the ferry ride smooth. Once on Lantau Island, we had a chance to walk on the beach and dip our feet in the South China Sea and to explore Tai O fishing village, both on foot and by boat. The Tian Tab Buddha and the monastery were the high point and we saw the Buddha from multiple levels. We had a delicious vegetarian lunch at the monastery and then free time to explore before taking an exciting cable car ride down the mountain to the bus for drive back to Hong Kong. All in all, a relaxing and enjoyable day!

The tour group was very accommodating to change our tour date a few days 24 hours before due to flight changes and not making the original date the tour was booked. They changed it without a problem or additional cost. The tour guide Renee was very informative and we enjoyed this tour very much. Highly recommended to anyone looking for a smooth tour of Lantau island.
