Big Buddha Tour
Gail F
, Jan 2020
This tour is a must to do mainly because of the cable car and the great views you get. Lunch was ok - vegetarian only but lots of choices to choose from. We quickly ate and looked around the site of the big Buddha as time was very precious. On the boat ride we actually saw several pink dolphin - a wonderful sight to see. I was actually surprised to see the waterways clean and free of rubbish - wonderful! This tour is great for couples or families alike.

My daughter and I had a great time visiting Lantau Island. The free time was short but still manage to do some shopping. The Tai O boat was rewarding. We saw Hong Kong’s pink dolphin. What a sight. Toby was attentive and polite. Use Viator when I was in Paris. You haven’t disappointed me yet.

A MUST IN HONG KONG

This is a must when in Hong Kong. The Giant Buddha and the surrounding temples are gorgeous. The hotel pickup was punctual and the tour guide was very knowledgeable about not only the tour but also Hong Kong in general. The cable car ride was amazing but it really is up to the weather how clear everything will be as you get higher up. The Tai O boat village is very culturally enriched and we were lucky enough to see the rare albino dolphin while on our boat ride. They dropped us off at the women's market upon finishing the tour because he recommended we go there to shop. However, they will drop you off wherever you please. I 10/10 would recommend this tour!!!

This was an amazing tour, the guide was very informative. I decided to skip the lunch for more time to explore the Giant Buddha and met up with the group at a specified time- this was enjoyable. The cable car ride and the views were well worth the time. The fishing village and market was quite interesting with few unique shops. I would highly recommend.
