    We loved the Giant buddha and the cable car on this day tour. Ben was our guide and the information he provided us gave meaning to what we were seeing. He was great. We both enjoyed the stop at the beach on such a beautiful day and we went wading. It was a long day but so glad you were doing the driving and organizing and not us. We enjoyed the small group size although I know that was due to the decrease in tourism due to the protests. We were in Hong Kong for a week and went everywhere with no problems from any protests.

    Our guide, KC, was excellent. The addition of going to the north end and seeing the fishing village added value to the visit to the buddha and monestary. Lunch was excellent!

    Had a great day, the Giant Buddha was amazing and our host was great. Really nice day out exploring.

    We changed the date last minute which was agreed with the trip organisers. Initially was a little disorganised but once we got to the island the guide was very knowledgeable. Fishing village was great. All round very happy with the trip and would recommend

    Ben was our tour guide and he was fantastic. So knowlegable and friendly. We had a wonderful day exploring some of the highlights of the island.

    My whole group enjoyed our trip. Seeing the fishing village as well as the Buddha and surrounding areas was wonderful. Ending the trip with the sky cars was breathtaking.

    Could have done it solo with a lot less money and spent more time at the top near the big Buddha. The village and beach aren’t a big miss. My advice would be to take the cable car directly.

    Very good tour tour and Famous lunch.

    However, we have only 20 minutes around the Big Buddha. When you book a full day, you expect more time on the main attraction of the tour! It was very strange!

    Jerry was our guide and he was great! Had lots of information to share and knew his stuff. Was great to see the island from someone who lived there. The Big Buddha is amazing! Something everyone should see when they are in HK. We had a really cloudy day and it was still very impressive.
