Corona virus meant that the cable car wasn't running and we had to travel by car instead of the ferry to the island. However, the big Buddha and the fishing village were definitely worth seeing and the vegetarian lunch at the monastery was very tasty. Ken, our guide, was excellent as well. Worth doing.

We were pleasantly surprised to find that this group tour ended up being a private tour for my partner and I, so that was fun. We were picked up by bus and dropped off at the ferry terminal where we met our guide. After our ferry trip over to the island we were driven to the fishing village where we explored the area and enjoyed a lovely river cruise with some sweet pineapple bread. We were then taken to the Giant Buddha where we learned about the history and construction. The museum inside was amazing. We had some free time here to walk around the outside of the statue, appreciating it's size and beauty while taking many photos. Once we climbed back down the stairs, we had lunch at a vegetarian restaurant, which provided good food. We were escorted through the beautiful Monastery before our guide added an extra walking tour through a nearby park which lead to the Wisdom Path. The best way to end the day was to return by cable car, a fantastic way to see Hong Kong from above. It was especially nice to skip the line to enter. Thank you for a fantastic day trip! Highly recommended.

The Big Buddha, made of Bronze stands at the top of 268 steps and is an impressive 34 metres high. It commands the area around it and you can see it from many places on Lantau Island. It was a highlight to come to see this amazing structure which was build in 1993. There are great views from around the Buddha and you can also go inside and look around the bell and other artefacts. At the bottom of the steps and just little way away is the Lin Po Monastery which is one of the more important Monasteries in the Buddhist religion. There is also the Hall of 10,000 Buddhas close by. A pleasant vegetarian meal can be had in the Monastery and is part of the tour taken. There is only tea or water served so you would nee to take soft drinks with you if that is what you prefer. Also as part of the tour is a walk around Tai O a fishing village with houses built on stilts. There is a walk through the shows selling a lot of dried fish, which is deemed a delicacy as a staple of the Chinese/Hong Kong diet. There is walk also a visit to a local temple with great explanations of local life and worship. Once you have finished at the Buddha there is a lovely walk down to the cable car through the Ngong Ping village which has a host of shopping opportunities as eateries. Onto the Cable Car - do try the glass bottomed car for that all round experience. My wife is scared of heights and managed to complete this and found it breath taking. The cable car ride is around 25 minutes top to bottom and the views are amazing. A wonderful way to see the sights without the hassle of trying to get there yourself is view this tour. Makes it so much easier, although I am sure you would save a lot of money if you did make your own way there/back.

We had a wonderful time in this Lantau tour. KC was a great tour guide. He gave us lots if interring information. He also had a great sense of humor. The lunch at the Monastery was wonderful. We were a bit Leary because it was vegetarian. We didn’t expect much but we’re very pleasantly surprised. The giant Buddha was beautiful as was the monastery. If you have a day in Hong Kong this is a great trip to do. Only drawback was the bus transportation to get to the start if the tour. We did a lot of changing busses and waiting around. We would do this again.
