Este tour es todo un encuentro con la naturaleza, la cultura de Hong Kong y las distintas religiones que se profesan en China. Nuestro guía de turistas fue muy amable e informativo con todas nuestras preguntas sobre temas como religión y la forma de vida de la gente en Hong Kong. Este tour incluye una breve visita a una playa donde la gente de Hong Kong acostumbra ir para huir de la ciudad. Además visitamos un pueblo de pescadores, donde se pueden apreciar las mercancías del lugar en un pintoresco mercado. Ahí mismo hicimos un paseo en bote donde pudimos ver las estructuras de las casas sobre el agua.
El paseo continua hacia el lugar donde está el Buda Gigante. Para mi agrado, el camión nos dejó justo en la cima, atrás de la estatua de Buda. Por lo que no fue tan pesado el recorrido, solo tuvimos que bajar las escaleras al terminar. La vista desde la cima es espectacular, la naturaleza, los monasterios. Uno de los mejores momentos en mi estancia en Hong Kong. Una vez que bajamos las escaleras, tuvimos una agradable comida en el monasterio, con comida vegetariana muy sencilla y con sabores muy sutiles. Después recorrimos los alrededores del monasterio y procedimos al área comercial Ngong Ping, donde tomamos un teleférico con una vista espectacular del lugar. El guía de turistas nos entregó un boleto para el teleférico tradicional, pero por muy pocos dólares se puede cambiar por una cabina con piso de cristal, lo cual valió la pena! El regreso al hotel fue agradable y sin contratiempos. Definitivamente volvería a tomar este tour.

Great tour guide - interesting and knowledgeable without being overbearing. Overall a fascinating day trip which included the fishing village, The Buddha and a great lunch at the monastery.

Brilliant day. Nice to see something of Lantau Island before seeing the Giant Buddha and visiting the monastery which are both a must . Cable car is brilliant with fantastic views. Really enjoyed our day.

This is a great well organised tour of Lantau Island. First of all you take the ferry across to Lantau Island and then get to explore the whole island by coach, visiting local villages and temples on the island. The floating village was an eye opener on how to preserve food and the locals were friendly. The Giant Buddha is an incredible structure to see and visit. A highlight of the tour which I was not expecting was to actually be able to go inside the Buddha itself when it is not open to the general public and hear the history associated with it's creation and the artefacts we saw was a unique experience. The lunch at the temple was made with local produce and very tasty. I particularly liked the end of the tour with upgrading to the glass bottom cable care ride back down the mountain side, great views!! Definitely recommend this tour.

Apart from the fact that it took nearly 2 hours to collect all the passengers from the various hotels before we reached Victoria Harbour where we were taking the ferry to Lantau Island, this excursion was 5 star and should not be missed. The guide was very informative and plenty of time was given to explore each of the places visited. The whole complex in which the Big Buddha sits is fascinating and there is so much to see, espectially within the main temple. Lunch was delicious but as there were so many separate courses served up we didn't stay to the end as we were more interested in spending the time sightseeing. The cable-car journey was breathtaking and fortunately for the bus journey back, the passengers were separated into 2 buses to speed the return to the hotel. A wonderful, wonderful, experience.
