Overview

See the Tian Tan Buddha statue (Big Buddha) on a visit to Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island — a popular destination almost twice the size of Hong Kong Island. This sightseeing tour includes a ticket for the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car and a boat ride around Tai O, a quaint fishing village where the houses stand on stilts. You have the option to upgrade to a glass-bottom crystal cabin at booking.
  • 6-hour Lantau Island sightseeing tour
  • Ride the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car
  • Upgrade available to a crystal cabin
  • Po Lin Monastery and Big Buddha at Ngong Ping Village
  • Boat ride around Tai O fishing village
  • Hotel transport from Hong Kong Island or Kowloon
Depart in the afternoon from your Hong Kong Island or Kowloon hotel. Meet your guide aboard the coach, which takes you to Tung Chung.
From there, you'll hop on the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car for a 25-minute aerial ride to Ngong Ping Village, a 3-mile (5.7-km) journey over Lantau Island. You're treated to 360-degree panoramic views of the South China Sea and North Lantau Country Park. If you upgraded to a crystal cabin, equipped with a glass bottom, expand your bird's-eye view of rolling grassland slopes right beneath your feet. 
You'll have free time to walk around the cultural-themed village of Ngong Ping. Climb the 268 steps to reach the Big Buddha, world's largest outdoor bronze Buddha statue, weighing 250 tons. Gain admission to Po Lin Monastery, the most popular Buddhist temple in HK. 
Afterward, you will make a stop at the fishing village of Tai O by coach. Once the largest inhabited settlement on Lantau Island, the village waterfront offers a glimpse into Hong Kong's past and provides a striking contrast with the modern city. A boat trip around the stilt houses of this tightly-knit fishing community is included.
Don't miss the Tai O Heritage Hotel, built in 1902; formerly the Tai O Police Station, the hotel features a colonial design that represents its vintage architectural charm.
At last, you'll transfer back to your hotel by coach.

Well advertised. Good communication for booking process and follow-up. Comfortable coach. Excellent guide. Pleasant and informative exposure to Hong Kong highlights.

It was a lot of fun on the ride but it got so foggy when we got up to the top of the mountain that we could not see the Big Buddha. The temples up there were beautiful it is a must see.

Enjoyed this tour. It was well organised. We had a clear day for the cable car with phenomenal views. The tour guide was informative and we were given time to explore the monastery and hike to Big Buddha. I opted to browse through the halls and then ordered food from the monastery cafeteria and sat on the tables provided to eat.The time was a bit tight for a hike up to the Big Buddha you would have to be very fit for that. I really enjoyed the walk through the fishing village. The boat ride ended with a trip out into the river to look for pink dolphins. Unfortunately we did not see any but the ride was pleasant. I think this was the better option than the whole day tour.

Ross, our tour guide was awesome. We were able to skip any lines for the cable cars and Ross explained everything so well while giving us time to explore on our own. It was great!!

A fantastic tour! Amazing experience to see the Big Buddha and the surrounding area - views getting to the Buddha is epic and truly impressive. Additionally, I did the tour of the fishing village and it was a remarkable experience to see local life, go out on the water and even spotted a few whales.

Amazing tour and our guide was wonderful and willing to answer any questions we were asking her about the area. Loved the gondola ride, the temple, fishing village and boat ride. It was all just perfect and I would highly recommend!

After paying for our ticket on line we were sent a list of hotels where we could be picked up from, well we don't live in the country so how would we know,where these are, the hotels only had names no address provided, so I had to make a phone call bearing in mind I don't have roaming to find out what hotel is closest to my hotel in order to be picked up from there.
Once on the coach we were taken to Lantau island all of our group put on separate cable cars to go across to the island and were advised to wait in the souvenir shop at the other end, well we got there and couldn't see anyone of our groups members , so panicked and wasted about 20 mins of our limited time at the site. We didn't know where or what time we would meet again. Finally we walked through the site anxiously looking for a member of our group and luckily found someone only 15 mins before we were supposed to be meeting at a different point. In my opinion the tour guide should have advised us in the coach before we headed off to a very busy tour the return time and meeting point, it would have saved us a lot of hassle. we couldn't go up to the Budda as we were afraid of missing our bus, and too busy looking for a familiar face. Also at the beginning of our tour there was a large number of people picked up from the hotels and we kept changing coaches before we got on the final one.

I book this since I was coming in early in the morning and did not want to waste an afternoon of my visit. I was pleasantly surprise by all the events that was covered by the tour.

The tour was great, however it would have been better to spend less time at the big Buddha and had more time at the fishing village - this part of the tour was very rushed, it would have been nice to have time to walk around / look at the shops etc. Tour guide was great

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The afternoon worked well for us, as well as it being only 5 hours. Ranald Ronald was a very enthusiastic and knowledgeable tour guide. He tried to engage all of the tour group. The cable car ride was excellent, a really unique experienced. We enjoyed Lantau Island and climbing the steps to the Big Budda. The Monastery was a beautiful building well worth seeing. Towards the end of the tour we visited a fishing village with the houses built high of stilts above the water. All up, an excellent tour and well worth considering.

An excellent tour with a very enthusiastic guide. It was a real bonus to see Chinese Whire dolphins on the boat trip from the fishing village.

The cable car ride is also not to be missed.

What an amazing tour, the guide was well informed and we were lucky enough to see the pink dolphins. The only thing I would change would be to start a little earlier as the traffic coming back was very very busy making it a long trio

The afternoon trip to Lantau Island was very enjoyable - detailed and very interesting with excellent guidance from our tour guide, Ross. He was very friendly, could answer all our questions, had extensive knowledge and a good sense of humour.
