We loved the Giant buddha and the cable car on this day tour. Ben was our guide and the information he provided us gave meaning to what we were seeing. He was great. We both enjoyed the stop at the beach on such a beautiful day and we went wading. It was a long day but so glad you were doing the driving and organizing and not us. We enjoyed the small group size although I know that was due to the decrease in tourism due to the protests. We were in Hong Kong for a week and went everywhere with no problems from any protests.

Our guide, KC, was excellent. The addition of going to the north end and seeing the fishing village added value to the visit to the buddha and monestary. Lunch was excellent!
