Jupiter was a great guide. She was friendly and knowledgeable, easy to talk to and was always willing to help out even after the tour was done. Our day went well and it was nice getting to know each other. If you get assigned to her, you'll be in good hands. Keep in mind this location has a lot of stairs and incline so wear comfy shoes and expect to sweat. We got lucky with a very clear view of the Giant Buddha but some days may be too foggy to see it even from the top. Also, don't be afraid to try the food stalls at Tai O Village. You'd be missing out on good jerky and dried squid/fish.

Mr Chen is a first rate tour guide. His ease of sharing the history and background of the location was delightful. I was traveling for business and was happy to be able to take advantage of seeing this gem. It was well worth the time. I would recommend this to anyone interested in visiting the Big Buddha, seeing the magnificent temple, and experiencing the history of the 500 year Tai O village. If you get lucky as I did, you may even spot the rare pink dolphins during your boat ride (which does require an additional nominal fee from a local boat service). I plan to return again with my family for this same tour once again!

Had a wonderful time. Stephanie was an amazing guide. She was very knowledgeable and able to provide us with different perspectives on places we visited. Recommend highly.

We had a perfect day visiting Lantau, the Big Buddha and Tai O village with Alexandra. She is gentle, knowledgeable and a lovely person to learn from and to be guided by. We very much enjoyed our time with her visiting this beautiful green and calm island and gaining insider knowledge. I couldn't recommend her and a visit to Lantau more!

Our guide Stephanie was great. Very punctual, she arrived a bit earlier than agreed to pick us up. We did an itinerary that involved a cable car ride, a visit to the Buddha, and then we went down to the fishing village of Tai O. At all times, Stephanie explained what we were seeing, the reasons behind each thing, and engaged us with the local history. From simple things like the history of the airport's construction or the bridge to Macau, to more historical aspects such as the Opium Wars and the constitution of Hong Kong. Furthermore, her knowledge as a guide helped us optimize the tour, avoiding queues and the busiest times at attractions, which not only saved time but also made the tour more relaxed and stress-free. I highly recommend taking this tour with Stephanie.
