Let your stress slip away on a day tour of Lantau in your own private vehicle


Join us for one of the must-see places on your Hong Kong adventure.

If you are looking for a full day tour of Lantau Island in a private vehicle, then this is the tour for you. Not many operators are able to off this due to the restricted licence to drive there - but I am one of the only guides who can do it.

Lantau is known as Hong Kong's green lung, and you can imagine stepping back in time 50 years when you visit. Most of this stunning island is untouched and can only be accessed by public transport. You will be driven seamlessly through the beautiful countryside on this six hour tour.

Itinerary

We will drive directly to the Po Lin Monastery and Big Buddha statue (approximately one hour from Hong Kong Island), where I will help explain the importance of Buddhism and how it is represented in the hearts, minds and belief system of the people of Hong Kong. We can walk the 268 steps up to the Big Buddha or we can arrange to drive to the top with advance notice.

We will then transfer to Tai O village, a must-see for anyone living or visiting Hong Kong. This relaxing village is one of the best preserved places on Lantau, indeed the whole of Hong Kong, largely owing to the efforts of the local community and a place to just really slow down. The history and culture of the area are intrinsically linked to its geographical location.

We will take a small boat ride to view the stilted houses and potentially the small pod of pink dolphin who inhabit the inlet.

Finally we will eat either in Tai O or at a picturesque restaurants on our way back at Cheung Sha Beach.

A Recent Review of this tour

We booked Amy to take 5 of us to Lantau Island from Hong Kong. She was amazing. She was friendly, knowledgable and professional. As part of our excursion we visited Tai O Village. Amy had great respect for the local people and they greeted her with love and enthusiasm. As a result, we experienced the authenticity of the village and loved our time there. I would recommend Amy for any excursion, she is a gem.
