Wow! Simply Wow! What a great island and village. Our guide was fantastic, as a Lantau native he knew so much history. The Buddha is truly breathtaking. So glad we went.
This tour was brilliant! It worth every dollar! The tour guide was so smart and explained everything. It was a full day with so many beautiful places!! You should for SURE not miss this! It is a MUST DO. The views wore amazing and also the lunch-vegetarian style.

Really good day out. Very friendly and knowledgeable guides. The incoming typhoon conditions unfortunately meant that the gondola/chair rail portion of the trip was cancelled as considered too dangerous - we could live with that. Big Buddha is amazing. Lunch provided with tour was fantastic and we certainly didn't go hungry. Well worth doing.
Great Day, Great Guide, Great Meal. We were assuming that an included vegetarian meal at the Monastery would be underwhelming...Instead, it was one of the best meals we had on or 17 day vacation. Loved the time in fishing village and at Buddha. Highly recommend this trip.
This tour was excellent. One of the best day tours Ive ever experienced.
Our guide Kurt was exceptionally well informed about the culture and history. His commentary was filled with interesting stories and anecdotes and he kept us fascinated and amused throughout the day.
He was very attentive and when the lunch service at the Po Lin Monastery didn't quite go as planned he didnt hesitate to organise the seating, fill the teapots and ensure that everyone was served.
The highlights of the tour were the walk through the Tai O fishing village, the Giant Buddha, the delicious vegetarian lunch and the cable car ride from the Ngong Ping Village on Lantau to Kowloon.
Apart from the small hitch at lunch and a breakdown of the microphone system on the bus the tour went off without a hitch. After the tour, we were the last passengers to be dropped off at the starting point at Pier 6 resulting in a long bus ride through the evening traffic.
Thanks Lantau Tours and special thanks to Kurt.
Fantastic, definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The tour guide was amazing and the vegetarian meal was actually really good. From seeing the fishing village, to the temple, to riding the gondola totally worth it to spend the 8 USD or so extra to upgrade to the glass bottom version, this was definitely a memorable part of our trip.
Excellent tour with a well informed guide. Highly recommended as a tour to a quieter Hong Kong.
Wonderful! / Hope you get Ryan as your tour guide. He is the best!!
Great way to spend the day.
So much to fit into one day, but guide was very organised Ryan. Was very informative and had a great sense of humour. Wonderful day, fully recommend tour.
Wonderful views and a great experience overall. We loved seeing the harbor views/ferry ride, beaches, the Buddha statue, the monastery/outstanding lunch, and the gondola ride back was a great way to end the trip opt for the glass bottom for only a couple dollars more. Very friendly guides, and a great day trip for an experience outside of HK.
I recommend the full day trip to Lantau Island. you'll take a ferry across the harbor, see the S China sea, visit a fishing town, see the Big Buddha get the lunch too. and the awesome tram ride back to HK. We went in December and the weather was great.
the guide was FANTASTIC! Kurt was an excellent guide. we are very happy
Fantastic local tour from a company based on Lantau island. The group is small, we all fitted in a mini-van rather than a large coach. It was excellent value for money. Would highly recommend.
Great tour so much tp see and the lunch was amazing as was the cable car ride Do it when in HK!
This trip was excellent. Our Guide Ryan was very knowledgable and funny. From the time we were collected from our hotel everything was sorted and went smoothly. Catamaran over to Lantau island, coach to fishing village, small boat ride around stilted houses, coach up to giant Buddha, lunch at the monestery and cable car back to Kowloon, then final transfer back to hotel. Great value and whole day out. Highly recommend
Despite it being cloudy and misty I loved this tour, an opportunity to see the giant Buddha and also a fishing village with homes on stilts, a boat ride to get a close up view, and seeing the island in general was wonderful. cows roam free on the island and the vegetarian lunch was fabulous all in all well worth the cost.
A quiet day with relatively few people on this beautiful island
Great tour. Ben was an excellent tour guide. Perfect for seeing all of Lantau island.
This tour was great and well planned. I have nothing bad to say about it. We had a great tour leader, the timing for everything was perfect, lunch was good and the cable car ride down was amazing!
Yes....definitely!! A start with a 30 minute ferry ride to Lantau no outside seating and crowded. Then.... a quick stop at the beach followed by a fishing village. We loved the fishing village.... very surreal on how the locals live. Next, the trip to the Giant Buddha with vegetarian lunch. Buddha was great for the short duration, lunch was just OK. Finally, the 25 minute cable car ride. Not a huge fan of heights but truly an amazing view of the island and the Hong Kong International airport. Overall....highly recommend!!
Really good trip. You have to see a bit of the old Hong Kong to appreciate how they live. Our guide Ryan was very informative.
Fantastic day out from Hong Kong.
Our guide Henry was very knowledgeable and took time out to answer any questions.
Especially liked visiting the fishing village, this was one of the things we wanted to see on our trip to Hong Kong.
Visiting the Buddha was great and the meal in the temple superb. No need to worry about scaling the steps and the Buddha, the bus drops you there and you walk down them or get the bus back down.
The views from the cable car were outstanding.
Thank you Henry for a great trip and for your extensive knowledge.
Excellent tour. The lunch was very good. The guide, Crystal was very informative. The Buddha was amazing. I also enjoyed the trip to the fishing village.
