we did the private walking tour of lantau island, including the big buddha and tai o village. Our guide (Alex) really tried to find special things to entertain our young girls, pointed out good locations to try street food, and found us a nice spot for lunch on the beach. Having a guide was great, because navigating the queues for the cable car aren't straight forward and she was able to show us more of the village than we would have explored on our own. Unfortunately we didn't see any dolphins but that is a gamble with any tour. Though we had younger children (5-7), there is a lot of walking on this tour (probably around 10K steps) and it wouldn't work well with strollers. We only did this one tour with the company but Alex was very knowledgeable about the city and could likely do a great job with any of their tours.

Alex was a wonderful tour guide who gave us a private tour of Lantau Island and Tai O. She was very informative and passed on to us a lot of information about The history of Hong Kong and Lantau Island, the people, and culture. We explored with Alex by foot, subway, cable car and ferry which helped to immerse us in the everyday life on the islands. We highly recommend booking your next tour with Alex. Awesome guide!!

What an incredible way to experience the beauty of Lantau Island!!!

We met STEPHANIE (our SUPERB GUIDE) at our hotel. She led us to the MTA subway for an enjoyable ride to the Lantau Island Cable Car. We then took at 25 minute cable car ride to view the Giant Buddha... an incredible sight!!!

We climbed the 266 steps for an up close and personal view of the Buddha.

Stephanie then led us on a tour of the Monastery and then on to a small boat ride to Tai O Village. We toured this amazing village and ate a delicious lunch at a unique and atmospheric local eatery.

After lunch, we continued our tour of Tai O Village. We visited a Taoist Temple and then took a bus to the MTA and rode the MTA back to Kowloon.

Stephanie then led us to the Lady's Market, just a few blocks from our hotel.

Thanks to Stephanie, it was truly a great day!!!

Lovely and informative day started when Stephanie picked my parents and me up in the lobby and having Stephanie to help quickly get on the right tubes was great and time saving as was the fact that having a guide meant you skipped queues. The journey to Lantau was smooth and getting to know each other. The cable journey to Lantau is definitely worth it and the big Buddha is a wonderful sight from all angles, sadly it's become quite touristy in the vicinity and I hadn't realised how new it all was nevertheless worth going to. From there we headed to O Tai village and again having Stephanie as a guide helped as she knew the exact times of the buses etc although never felt rushed and she always allowed for us to take our time. The village was lovely, very authentic and as we chose not to have a proper sit down lunch, Stephanie took us to a lovely coffee shop as well as a Temple which may not always be visited, in fact there was nobody there and me managed to have a go at the Spitting Bowl! Overall, we had a lovely day and learnt a lot especially in the Village where Stephanie recounted of some of the people she herself had met there and the way they lived, etc. Thanks Stephanie! And of course to Hong Kong a' la Carte!

Stephaine was a wonderful tour guide. She was very informative and such a lovely lady to spend the day with. We totally enjoyed the tour she gave. We had a great time visiting the Big Buddha and Tai O Village, we had lunch at a lovely restaurant in the village over looking the water. If we came back to Hong Kong we would hire Stephaine to take us on another tour, she's the best!

We've just moved to HK and Alex tailor-made three tours for my family that allowed us to get a great overview of life here. From the zoo, Peak and kids' play areas to big Buddha, pink dolphins and pizza on the beach, her tours were customised specifically to the interests of our three young children. And they loved them. Alex is patient, considerate and welcoming — and with years of HK experience offers a wonderful personal perspective. Recommended.
