    Picked up on time by our guide that showed us to the bus. Once on our way, we were given a description of what was going to happen on the tour and what to expect from our great guide Cecilia. Started with the cable cart ride which was spectacular and took us up to the Buddha and the monastery. The Buddha is impressive and the monastery beautiful. After taking in the views we got on a bus and was taken to Tai O. A charming little village we walked through to board our boat. A small tour of the village then out of the harbour. Once out the captain heard that there was some dolphins close so we sped out and there they were. Saw quite a few of them before they moved on. That in itself was worth the whole tour. Great tour, fully recommended it.

  • 28-Oct-2019

    The tour combined our tour with tourist from South America that spoke very little English. This caused the guide to have her attention divided. Since our guide didn't speak Spanish, this made communications difficult. Also, our tour was diverted out of our way to take some tourist to Disneyland. This significantly reduced the amount of time we had to visit our scheduled sites. Additionally, we visited a fishing village and took a boat ride. However, there was no guide or explanation of what we saw or the significance of why we were there. That being said, the boat ride and visit to that village could have been eliminated. Thus allowing more time to visit the Big Buddha which was truly fantastic

  • 29-Jul-2019

    We were in Hong Kong for a short time. We were deciding between this tour or a Hop On/Hop Off tour. This is out of the city, and shows a different aspect of the country. We even had an impromptu
    dolphin trip when we visited Tai O (fishing village). I would recommend over the Hop On/Hop Off get more of Hong Kong than just buildings.

  • 23-Apr-2019

    Cable car was brilliant but we only had 40 mins at the big Buddha which wasn’t long enough to climb up plus have lunch and look at the shops so had to miss out on food and shopping. Fishing village was a nice detour with the boat ride. We were lucky enough to see a dolphin. Needs longer time at each place

  • 03-Apr-2019

    a very organised tour , tour guide entertaining, got to skip line at cable car. had fun time, got to see the bridge that goes from Hong Know to Macau (bonus) was not expecting to see that. i would recommend this tour company to my friends and would use them again for sure

  • 28-Jan-2019

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

  • 05-Dec-2018

    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.

  • 19-Mar-2018

    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.

  • 25-Feb-2018

    Guide was informative and cordial. Cable car ride was breathtaking.

  • 22-Feb-2018
