With the unrest in HK this company took extra efforts to make sure we were safe. They kept the full size bus for only eight people. This company puts customers safety above profits. Good for them!! The tour was excellent as well. Zero lines or crowds.

It was a lot of fun on the ride but it got so foggy when we got up to the top of the mountain that we could not see the Big Buddha. The temples up there were beautiful it is a must see.
