A taste of tranquility yet close to the hustle & bustle of Hong Kong

A great day out and a pleasant break from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong and just so easy! Picked up from hotel and had short coach transfer to the pier to take the high speed ferry to Lantau. Ben, our knowledgeable and informative guide, accompanied our small group (13) and kept us all together at the various stops around the island. Plenty of time to appreciate (and photograph) the surroundings and stopped off at a nice variety of locations from beach to wandering through a fishing village, temples, buddhist shines, monastery and finishing with a long scenic cable car ride. Lunch at the monastery was very good indeed and unrushed and a good opportunity to talk to other members on the tour. Bus then returned us to our hotels to complete a full circuit at the end of the day. A perfect day out for me and my daughters (late teens) - but I wouldn't recommend it for children or young teens.

Changing buses three times was a hassle but overall the trip was fine.

A lot of time was spent picking up passengers and changing buses just to get the tour started, but once we made it to Lantau Island we enjoyed the Tai O Fishing Village and the boat trip to see the white dolphins. Loved the lunch at the monestary and seeing the Big Buddha despite the spitting rain and non-working cable car. The guide was only adequate - he could have spent more time while we were traveling telling the group about the history of the island and building the statue. We avoided a long drive dropping off at various hotels by catching the Star Ferry back to Kowloon.

Good experience.. Cable car ride was excellent

Lantanu island is must visit for HongKong. I purchased this deal from GetYourGuide, I had taken cable car, boat ride and unlimited bus ride deal. Which was worth it. I had to skip the que while buying the tickets so that was good one but then there was a long que for entering the cable car. While returning one must take a note to avoid que, one should reserve your return cable car tour before half n hour and then you can directly enter cable car. I did this reservation (at Lantanu reservation office) and skipped the que for entering the cable car.

Excellently organised, perfect guide, well worth the money!

Very well organised trip, small group of 11, our guide Ken was very entertaining, amusing and did an excellent job. We skipped all lines at the cable car and were after lunch transported up to the Budda by bus - no need to take the 200plus stairs. Booked this trip short notice, response time from the tour operator was swift and on point. They provide the exact pick up time via email after booking and drop you off at the hotel after the tour. I definitely recommend this trip.

Exceptional experince and customer focused service!

We enjoyed the multi-lingual commentary through out the trip. It is crucial and makes our experince meaningful. The service was exceptional, our trip rained half way through, and we were provided with a poncho straight away. The bus conductor was also very friendly and helpful. In general, we love the experince!
