What to expect
Choose to meet your private guide at your hotel (tour duration will be 8 hours) or at the Tung Chung MTR Station on Lantau Island (tour duration will be 7 hours).  Begin your exploration of Lantau with a ride on the Ngong PIng Cable Car, which features views of Lantau Country Park over the course of the 25-minute ride. Once you arrive at the Big Buddha, you can climb the 268 steps to visit the top, the hall of the 10,000 Buddhas, and the Po Lin Monastery.  Hop on the bus for the 20-minute ride (own expense) to Tai O, a village comprised of homes on stilts in the water. Visit the colorful seafood market and learn how the village is famous for its production of shrimp sauce and shrimp paste. Stop by the restored Old Police Station, now a hotel, where you can stop for lunch (own expense).  Visit one of the remaining shrimp sauce factories and a temple built in the 15th century before boarding a speedboat for a 20-minute ride (keep an eye out for the native pink dolphins). If you like, you can trek to a lookout point to see the bridge being built to connect Hong Kong to Macau.  Please note: Total walking distance is 3 to 6 miles (5 to 10km); this tour is suitable for participants who are reasonably physically fit.  Weekdays, you'll meet at Tung Chung at 9:45am (hotel 9am) and holidays/weekends at Tung Chung at 8:45am (hotel 8am).

Most Enjoyable Lantau Tour
Feb 2020
Our tour guide, Stephanie, took us to Lantau to visit the Big Buddha site and the fishermen village Tai O. The places were very interesting, and definetely worth visiting. Stephanie was very knowledgwable, she knew well the history of places we visited and the people who lived there in the past and now, She conveyed the material to us in such a way that made the tour an exciting experience. We could not expect for more!

Spectacular Day In Lantau
Dec 2019
Our family had the best day in Lantau with Sainclair. From the moment we met Sinclair, we knew we were in great hands. He was so knowledgeable, professional and kind. We learned so much from him and enjoyed every aspect of the tour. He knew I loved pictures and was so patient. He knows everything about Hong Kong and we feel truly blessed to have met him. You will love any tour with Sinclair and Lantau is something that should be a must do on your list.

Great Guide and experience in Lantau Island
Jan 2020
Ryan was our guide for 7hrs in this tour and Amazing experience with him. Since we meet up with him he started to explain about the Islands in Hong Kong and all the full day itinerary. He always asked us about questions, including Chinese language questions. As we had late lunch we decide to lunch in small local cafe in Tai O and he found us the food we want! He shared with us also additional information about the culture, the airport, the cable car, and local activities. I really had a great day in Lantau and yes we climbed the 256 steps :)

I totally recommend this company for this tours or others excursions., Also it does not matter if you are on cruise ship. They reach out to you by car and then you move in public transport with him which is a great experience

Amazing Day in Lantau Island
Dec 2019 • Family
Our family of ten had the most wonderful day touring Lantau Island with Sinclair. He was a wonderful tour guide and tailored our experience to the needs and desires of our family. He was full of information about the sights and Hong Kong in general, and was great with all ages in our family (9 to 80). Best of all, he took many pictures of our family, so we will be able to remember this special day.

Lantau Island and Big Buddha Excursion
May 2019 • Couples
Ryan was a great host. We met at the metro station and we were taken by bus to the Big Buddha and Tai O, where our trip began. Next was a trip to Lantau island for a quick boat ride, lunch and walking tour. Ryan was very informative and and enthusiastic. Highly recommended this tour!

Only Way to Really See Hong Kong
Apr 2019
It is hard to describe how incredible my tour experience with Mel was, as a way to see Hong Kong and the surrounding area through the eyes of someone who lives there, and still seem believable! I felt Mel expertly guided me through a breadth of sights, sounds, food and culture that Hong Kong had to offer, in an efficient, friendly and engaging way. While it seemed effortless on his part, that sense simply speaks to the enormous planning and skill he has a guide. He was willing to give his perspective on life in Hong Kong, far from "just" pointing out the sights. I will always remember the experience of my few days in Hong Kong and honestly feel I have made connection with Mel that I will always value.

Private tour of Lantau Island
Apr 2019
We had an amazing day with our private tour of the Lantau Island, Big Buddha and Tai O.

Our guide Mel, was very informative and helpful throughout the tour and he showed us areas and explained things that we wouldn't have been able to discover without his expert knowledge and detail of the local culture and behind the scene workings of the areas we visited.

I would highly recommend taking this tour as you will be able to discover more in the 8 hrs than you could in a few days wondering around without a guide.

Our guide Mel was terrific - he answered by husbands' never ending questions and was very well informed and open to discussing a variety of topics. He also helped us very efficiently navigate across the island (and even helped get a meal safe for me, with Celiac disease, to eat at our lunch spot). Thanks for a great day Mel!
