This tour was on our first day in Hong Kong. It was a great way to see the lay of the land and the great views from the Big Buddha. Lantau island is very interesting and so different from Hong Kong. The quaint fishing villages and farming lands were a welcome change. the beaches are also very picturesque and rarely inhibited. The highlight was the Big Buddha and the Monastery, which were both very interesting and enjoyable to visit.
Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable and made this experience a great day. I was looking forward to the Buddha, but we got a full day filled with some really cool tours I was not expecting at all. Definitely worth the money to have them take you all around on the ferries buses, boats and sky, and show you things you would never see on your own. I would highly recommend this trip!
Had an excellent time on this tour, the guide was great, very informative.
One of the best tours we have ever done, great value! Guide was fantastic. Ferry to Lantau, beach photo stop, tai o fishing village tour and boat trip -very authentic and fascinating, then giant Buddha tour, lunch in exquisite po Lin monastery, time for pics or shopping in quaint area then amazing funicular ride. Very pleased with this comprehensive and varied tour!
Very relaxing day with excellent views. Tour Guide Crystal was exceptional, very well organized with lively sense of humor. Lunch at the temple was excellent
Excellent trip overall and I would recommend this trip...!!!
Friendly staff from start to finish
The guide was informative and organised at all times, knowing where everyone was pointing out interesting facts.
Pick up and drop off times were at all times punctual which is great subject to traffic of course
Very good trip and local guide. A little rushed but overall, a good layout of the things covered.
Excellent day out, fantastic vegetarian lunch and exciting trip on the cable car
We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Our guide, Henry, was fantastic! Thank you, Henry, for your kindness and wisdom. The visit to the fishing village was enlightening, the vegetarian lunch at the monastery was delicious and the cable car ride back to HK Island was impressive. We had a great time and I highly recommend this day trip from Hong Kong.
A fantastic tour. Definitely the highlight of our trip to Hong Kong.
This tour was worth every penny. I went on a very hot and humid day and it was still comfortable b/c of the great air conditioned buses and restaurant so we got to cool off regularly. The sights were absolutely incredible. The day was packed with lots of different things to do and guide was great!
I booked the trip for 4 , 2 adults and 2 of my kids. The tour was well planned and is really worth if the day is not too hot :- . Hotel pickup was prompt, Ferry ride was really good and from there a bus tour of the Lantau islands. I felt, the tour agency could have avoided stopping just 15-20 mins at the beach, instead should have taken directly to the Buddha where one could spend more time. The fishing village tour was short and good, not much to see and experience, however, just a different experience. From here we were taken to the Giant Buddha, this is where i did not like the time give to us, we were just given 20 mins, which was really not good enough to spend time there. One would easily require at least 40 mins at this place. I would really suggest the tour agency to skip the beach break and allow that time here. Post Giant Buddha tour, we were taken to at the base for the lunch. Lunch was really good.
Next stop is the cable car ride which was the 2nd best in the trip where the tour typically ends and we are dropped back to our respective hotels.
Overall, the tour was really good and my family enjoyed it.

Another great day out and about Hong Kong! Everything was organised well and ran smoothly. Guide was knowledgeable. The boat ride around Tai O fishing village and its traditional houses on stilts was good. It was very interesting to see how the locals lived. The vegetarian lunch was amazing as was the Po Lin Monastery. The cable car ride back down from Ngong Ping Village was phenomenal - a must do experience.
We were very pleased with the tour guide, the tour as well as the meal. It was our first time with Viator but not the last. We will recommend Viator to all our friends. Thank you.
excellant tour, very informative and our tour guide Crystal was very professional
MUST-SEE SIGHT and the veg food in the monastery was amazing! I loved the views on the cable ride back. Would definitely recommend.
The tour was very good and the tour guide was very informative as well.
I feel like the value was good for this tour. Got to see a lot and tour guide was very good.
We had a superb guide in Kurt, whose local knowledge was very informative. The choice of venues was just fine. Unfortunately, visibility was very poor because of heavy clouds one cannot control the weather. Nevertheless, the tour was very worthwhile.
Fantastic tour, great organized and a lot of action. Every one of our small group liked it. Highly recommended
Rained a lot so I wouldn't recommend going during April, but despite the rain this was the most awesome experience. This was my very first tour ever and after going on this one I will most definitely be spending the money to go on more tours when I visit other countries. Best money I've ever spent!
