Fantastic tour with a very knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend this tour.
This is a relaxed but very enjoyable tour that starts with a half hour ferry ride from Hong Kong harbour. The two of us were the only customers on the day and our tour guide, Daniel, was able to give us unobtrusive but personal service. He also shared interesting insights about what it is like living in Hong Kong. The tour is entirely on foot apart from a ride on a sampan as there are no cars on the island. But this is not an issue as the island is tiny. It has a charming harbour, a lovely beach and some rocky headlands. The Dim Sum lunch was excellent and our guide made sure the vegetarian in the party was well catered for. We would recommend this tour if you have had a hectic time enjoying Hong Kong and are looking for a relaxed but interesting day to chill out.
Great tour, fantastic tour guide who gave a very comprehensive talk along the way. A little gem of an island that I did not know about but was so very glad to have taken this tour. Great lunch at the hotel which the guide took the time to find out what we liked and did not like to eat and then ordered for us. An interesting tour to take.
Beddi was a great guide. The group was small and very different ages but Beddi managed to keep everyone involved and interested. Thank you Beddi. Laura Li and Brad Tyler.
This tour was really good, we were a family of three who had the guide to ourselves. Ming told us more than we could find in a book about the history and culture of the people on the island and other relevant facts about the Chinese in general. I would recomend this to anyone who wants to see the real deal in a small village not the tourist hot spots that dont let you experience anothers way of life.
Excellent tour we were the only ones on the trip so received excellent service throughout

I highly recommend this tour. The local guide was friendly, efficient and good hearted. I enjoyed the sampan ride very much. The only downside was that the lunch was not very appetizing but you can buy buns at bakeries on the back streets.
Excellent trip around Cheung Chau Island. Lunch was delicious and the guide was very informative.

Had a local tour guide from Cheung Chau who was very proud of his small part of the world. Easy to understand with a lovely demeanour. Our guide took us to a small cramped 2 storey restaurant, where he asked us what we wanted to try and then had it ordered. The food was served quickly. It was tasty, but we were all very conscious of the fact we didn't want to get ill, so we all used the hot green tea (supplied free) to wash our small bowls before putting the food into it. It was an experience one must try, and we can happily report, no-one out of the 4 in our group were ill. The place was also full of locals, which is a good sign.

I've spent a lot of time in Hong Kong over the years, but never visited some smaller islands. So I took an organized tour. In this case there were only three people on this tour myself, my partner, and another Australian woman, plus our tour guide. Well organized, punctual, and interesting history given of the island by our very friendly and pleasant tour guide. It was absolutely no fault of the tour guide, but it was very humid always at this time of year, so the tour could not be enjoyed to its fullest, simply because it's a walking tour of the island. I would recommend that it would be better to take this tour in the cooler months of maybe October November, or February March, unless you enjoy walking in high humidity. The included Dim Sum lunch was pleasant but don't expect 5-Star at a regular and fortunately air conditioned local restaurant. It seemed a pity and somewhat sad that our tour guide was not able, maybe not allowed ,to join the three of us for lunch. We almost felt somewhat embarrassed that he apparently although he did not indicate so, it's my assumption he was not supposed to eat with his guests. Seemed a bit strange to the three of us, and would have been a more pleasant lunch had he been able to join us. Never-the-less, it was a worthwhile and interesting 6 hour trip, we could have stayed longer on the island had we wished, but we all just wanted to get back into the air conditioned ferry back to Hong Kong, to a car-less island, where bicycles seem to be the main means of transport.
Excellent tour. Interesting and informative guide. Lunch was great.
This is a lovely small island - so different from Hong Kong itself. We had a great tour guide and a lovely lunch. The tour is definitely worth doing.

All main tours for major destinations are on the site for a reasonable price. It was very convenient to book everything in advance.
Once we met with our tour guide, the island was wonderful, and we could walk it easily. Our guide was extremely helpful at all times, and gave us great insight and history of our surroundings. Our Dim Sum lunch was excellent. We were delayed by 45 minutes for the pick up from our hotel, however the rest of the trip was fantastic.
Good tour, Elton our guide was extremely knowledgeable. The down side was where we went for Dim Sum lunch. We were told not to use the toilets because they were not clean but the restaurant was also not very clean. we didn't enjoy the lunch experience at all.
Yes, this was a walking tour in a downpour, during a T3 typhoon, but despite the weather and our wetness, the tour itself was not that great. The temple was under construction, quite small, and not much to see. The cave was a literally a pile of rocks you can't enter, or see the cave. The dim sum lunch was unremarkable, we had better dim sum in Hong Kong, and our guide had to wash all of our utensils and cups in hot water before serving, so it didn't make it seem like the hotel's cleanliness was reputable. The commentary during the tour was sparse, and generally repetitive, often repeating word for word what was easily read in english on signs with no additional commentary or insights. The pace was slow, the food was mediocre, the sights were misleading. The only good parts of the tour was the small boat ride out to the caves. Yes, there were cockroaches on the boat, but that just made it a little more authentic!
Cheung Chau was a different experience to the busy Hong Kong. It was relaxing to walk around and see how life was on this island. It was only a short visit to the temple then onto Prince of Pirates with an enjoyable lunch, then on the ferry back to Hong Kong Island. Our guide was very good.
This is a walking tour of the island and is not suited to the elderly particular in the heat. We could not fault our guide who was very caring when we realised it was a walking tour. She was very flexible and as we were the only ones she was very happy to walk as far and as slow as we wanted. The pirates cave was a non event. All we saw was a pile of rocks at the bottom of a cliff but the walk there and back was pleasant due to a cool sea breeze. The walk through the village was informative if so what depressing in terms of cleanliness and living conditions. Our beach walk was disappointing in terms of the large amount of rubbish on the beach and in the water which no one seemed to care about. The lunch at the hotel was ok with our guide selecting dishes she thought we would like to try. We were appalled by the standard of cleanliness in the hotel dining room. The table cloth was dirty and the chairs were caked in grime. Our guide was excellent but this tour wasn't for us.

Great guide - very informative and enthusiastic. Wouldn't go back for another visit but enjoyed the experience for what it was.

Unfortunately we were the only two on the Cheung Chau trip. The guide turned up on time. The ferry trips were interesting, the lunch was good, but unfortunately there wasn't much to see on Cheung Chau, and it rained most of the time. Not a recommended trip!
