Great choice to start early by car and see how the locals live on Labtau and reach the temple whilst the place was serene and peaceful. The ride down on the cable car was exciting as well and as I was early I managed to have. Cable car on my own. Unblocked views were so memorable :) Frank was prompt and knowledgeable. Won't hesistate to recommend him.
Peter BrooksUnited Kingdom
As with our tour Hong Kong this tour with Frank to Lantau was equally enjoyable
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your second five stars review, Peter! Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour and Hong Kong Island Kowloon full day private car tour are our very popular private car tours. Just like Peter, clients may have one full day tour first and have the half day Lantau tour on the next day. Then clients can visit and see the best parts of Hong Kong!
Brian RobertsUnited States
Frank was Fantastic!! So knowledgeable about Hong Kong. We had a 4 hour tour with Frank before our flight left so we visited Lantau Island, Big Buddha, Po Lin Monastery and Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car. Frank's knowledge was immense and did a great job answering all of our questions. It was also great having a driver so Frank could concentrate on the tour. We did a lot of walking, but the driver was always on time at our exit points.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your five stars rating, Brian! With a well-planned private car tour program, private guide's basic but most important job, making tour commentary, becomes easy. Of course clients get more from the guide. Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour is the top-rated sightseeing and logistics solution for you. After saying hello to Big Buddha, you take cable car to go downhill to enjoy the breathtaking scenery. You are no need to use the same South Lantau Road again and see the same view again.
Having Frank as our personal guide on this tour made all the difference, he had a Lantau Island blue taxi waiting for us in the morning so we did not have to line up for one to take us to the top of the mountain. We were also one of the first groups up at the Big Buddha so it was not busy at all. The ride on the gondola back was a highlight with great views and once again as we were in front of most of the groups we did not have to line up at all to get on. We had a great time.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your five stars rating again, Luke! Using Lantau taxi to go up to the Big Buddha and take the Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car to downhill is the best way to visit the Lantau Island. So the 4-hour Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour helps you to dodge the big crowds and offers you the panoramic scenic view of Lantau Island.
Franklin RichardsUnited States
Frank was awesome. Very polite and took time to answer our questions. His knowledge and patience made it a terrific experience for us. Would love to do another tour with Frank in the future. Totally 5 star rating!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Franklin! This is a program, which includes airport pick up, tour for Big Buddha and Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car and transfer to hotel. As the private car tour program is the well-planned logistics and sightseeing solution,the private guide can focus on offering the basic but important guiding service to the clients easily. Then the clients get the best tour service after just landing at Hong Kong.
Jeff C.United States
Frank paid attention to my arrival time and arranged everything in a well organized fashion. So we were able to accompolish a lot just on the first day of the trip. Usually, the first day was always just a resting day for international travel. We definitely did got more than what we expected! In addition, the driver also gave us a great overview on HK and updated us on all current developments in this ever changing city!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Jeff! The Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour offers you good value for money as it includes the arrival pick up service from the airport to hotel. The well-planned tour program, the included private transportation arrangement and cable car ride make good use of your time. You walk less, wait less, do more and see more in 4 hours.

Shelley HoodUnited States
Fabulous Tour. Frank arranged for the driver to pick us up. Our Lantau tour guide picked us up where Frank then met us and did an outstanding tour of Lantau Island. Frank was very informative. He gave us plenty of time to look around take pictures and buy postcards. We will definitely use Tours by Local and most importantly request our tour guide Frank.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Shelley! Our Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour and Hong Kong & Lantau Island full day private car tour, have the well-planned tour program.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Ed!

Michael GrayUnited States
Frank is a great guide and very knowledgeable about Lantau Island and Big Buddha. We enjoyed our time with him and highly recommend this tour. The drive over was nice and gave us a chance to see more of Lantau Island than we would otherwise. I highly recommend the morning tour as we had the place literally to ourselves.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Michael! Private car with driver offers travelers two-way transfer between city and remote Lantau Island. During private Lantau taxi ride, travelers see good view at the restricted south Lantau Island. After saying hello to the Big Buddha, travelers can see the natural landscape of the north Lantau Island. The best timing keep travelers ahead of the hectic crowds. The best transportation arrangement, best private guide's tour commentary and best timing offer travelers easy & enjoyable Lantau tour.
Peter R.United States
Our experiences with Frank Law and our driver Ringo were excellent. Frank was extremely knowledgeable and professional. Ringo was also a very patient, well-informed, and safe driver. The tours we had were outstanding and memorable. Frank and Ringo were always prompt, courteous, and well-organized. Both Frank and Ringo were personable, pleasant and always upbeat. If there is a star system with five stars being the highest score, my wife and I would rank both Frank and his driver Ringo with five stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Peter! Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour focuses on the major highlights of Lantau Island and offers the best transportation to clients. The private car round trip transfer and one-way Lantau taxi ride help the clients to beat the crowds. The private guide gets more room to show Lantau to clients in a funny manner. Clients visit Po Lin Monastery, say hello to Big Buddha and take Ngong Ping Cable Car ride easily and enjoyably.
Fantastic tour with Frank. The cable car, Giant Buddha and Monastery were magnificent. Frank was very knowledgeable and even though we have lived in Hong Kong for three years we still learned a lot. Highly recommended
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Averil! Your review shows why the guests should book the private tour conducted by the Made in Hong Kong private tour guide! Please don't forget the included private Lantau taxi ride. The taxi ride helps the guests to dodge the crowd at the cable car station. During the taxi ride, guests can see the amazing view of the southern part of Lantau Island too. Private car transfer, taxi ride and cable car ride guarantee Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour is easy and enjoyable.
Kathy AleciaUnited States
Great service, prompt pickup, Frank and drivers were very professional and the tour was very pleasant. We strategically arrived at the destination where the crowds haven't formed and it felt like an ultra private tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Kathy! We know good transportation is the precondition for the success of the Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour. So we adopt the private car + private Lantau taxi + Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car formula, which has the efficiency with a reasonable price, to bring clients to go back and forth the Big Buddha easily and enjoyably. When the cable car service resumes in June 2017, our half day 4-hour Lantau Island Big Buddha private car tour will be perfect!
Leslie SchaeferUnited States
2 day- 3 tours! Hong Kong was a mixture of old and new presented to us through the eyes of our guide Frank Law and our terrific driver, Ringo. Frank was entertaining, informed, and caring about all aspects of our (2-day private tour for 3 couples. We ate in authentic and fun restaurants, we saw very enlightening sites and were told educational and personal stories by Frank. We especially liked the one about his "song bird", his name - "bird". We give Frank a 5 star rating.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Leslie! For the Lantau Island Big Buddha private limousine tour, we are going to use the private car, private Lantau taxi and Ngong Ping Cable Car in June 2017 to solve the logistics and transportation problem of Lantau Island and offer travelers the easy and enjoyable private tour experience. Of course, travelers can enjoy amazing view of Lantau Island during the transfers and cable car ride.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Daphne! Transportation is the most important problem in touring Lantau Island. We shall use the private Lantau taxi to bring guests up the Big Buddha. Then we shall arrange the guests to take the Ngong Ping Cable Car to go back to Tung Chung. During taxi ride, guests can enjoy south Lantau's beautiful view. Taking cable car to go downhill can dodge the big crowd of going uphill. Hope can offer every guest the easy and enjoyable private tour experience on Lantau Island!

Frank was a welcomed face when we arrived in Hong Kong airport. He was punctual, knowledgable, friendly and informative. He even gave us a detailed list of sights to see on our own for the following day of our vacation. His English was excellent and he spoke loudly and clearly for all of us to hear. Thanks for enhancing our first visit to Hong Kong, Frank and Ringo!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Robin! Our duties in the Lantau Island Big Buddha private limousine tour are to offer punctual and friendly round trip private transfer service and informative and interesting commentary for the largest Lantau Island in Hong Kong.

Yuri MohanSouth Africa
Funny and informative guide.....enjoyed the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: That's 6 months ago already, how time flies! Thank you for your review and praise, Yuri!
Raymond RamseyUnited States
Frank did a great job on this half day tour to Lantau island and visiting the "Big Buddha" via Tram. He has great knowledge of the area and it's history as well as it's future. I would highly recommend Frank for anyone looking to get around Hong Kong with a reliable tour guide. And he has a great sense of humor.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Raymond! I hope people in Hong Kong can get the consensus on the development of Lantau Island. Then, apart from the Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery, everyone can see more during our Lantau Island private limousine tour more easily and enjoyably!
Our tour guide, Frank L., was great. He knew a lot and was never pushy that we were taking too long in one spot. He made the day very relaxing especially since he took the pressure off having to figure out how to get to some of the sights. Great tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for booking through Toursbylocals, Rick! Hope you get the easy and enjoyable private tour experience during your Lantau Island private limousine tour!
Paul ShrodeTyler, TEXAS, United States
Frank was an awesome guide. My wife and I enjoyed every minute of our time with him. He loves his city and his pride is contagious. Thanks Frank for a great layover tour. You rock!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Paul! Your tour was about one year ago already! We are going to upgrade the Lantau Island Big Buddha private limousine tour program by adding the private Lantau taxi ride in June 2017. This can further avoid the uncertainties caused by the crowd at Tung Chung Cable Terminal and offer clients the panorama of Lantau Island. As Lantau Island is right next to the airport, of course, it is a good place to have a layover private tour.
William PursellUnited States
Our second tour with Frank on this visit. Once again he rated an A+. Lantau Island got us away from the city to see the beautiful mountainous scenery. The main attraction is The Big Budda. A definite must see. After our visit there Frank and Ringo delivered us to the airport, an excellent way to utilize time perfectly. Another great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much again, William! Lantau Island is right next to the airport. It is easy to say hello to the Big Buddha before saying goodbye to Hong Kong during the Lantau Island private limousine tour with private guide!
Frank is an excellent guide very professional! he provided a god car and driver! we did a lot in one day and he explained very well all the sites we visited! He is a HK expert and you can do a lot in one day!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Ligia! The private car with driver solves the most difficult problem of traveling, transportation!!! By the help of the private car with driver, the private guide can focus on serving the guests and the small group can go to more different places in a 4 to 5 hours half day tour.
Maria KramerUnited States
We were not happy with our tour guide Frank during our visit in Hong Kong. I will give him a rating of 2 Frank was stubborn, argumentative and in a couple of cases took it upon himself to change things around without asking us first about our preference. Additionally, we did not receive the full benefit of our visit to Macau. I would not recommend this tour guide to anyone Very dissapointed. Sincerely, Maria Kramer
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you,Maria,but we're sorry to hear your comment. We have submitted a comprehensive report to Toursbylocals. We did urge you to change the tour date & remind you the difficulties of Tai O visit. As you insisted,we did the tour on the busy Saturday & made the changes to the set Lantau tour itinerary(visit to Tai O)& skip other points due to time & traffic limit. We treat all guests equally.We did try the best to serve you. We shall give the best private limousine tour to our guests as usual.
Barbara MorrisUnited States
Frank Nd our driver Ringo were great. Their timing was perfect, lots of info. The walk up the steps to the Big Buddha is well worth the effort.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much again, Barbara! The Big Buddha, which is the amazing construction on a green mountain top, is really good. Private transport arrangement can offer you a good tour timing. The private guide can focus on giving tour commentary to the clients in the private car, instead of finding bus stops or metro stations. Also the guide and clients won't be disturbed by other people and noises.
Linda G.United States
on our second day in Hong Kong with Frank, we took 2 half day tours: Sai Kung Seafood tour and the Lantau Island tour. I was already expressed what we say on the first day in Hong Kong and the Sai Kung Peninsula but the Lantau tour was our favorite. You MUST say hello to the big Buddha and visit the monastery. Lantau island has so much to offer.... Impressive and gorgeous area. A must do in Hong Kong! Frank's knowledge and service for the tour was excellent. Frank & Ringo are a great team! Thanks so much
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for the third time, Linda! Our 'Lantau Island private limousine tour with private guide' aims at showing travelers the beautiful and historic Lantau. We skips Tai O Fishing Village, which has an undeserved reputation. We brings the travelers to say hello to the Big Buddha by the round trip Ngong Ping 360 Cable Car ride. We also bring the travelers to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Tsing Ma Bridge and to see the history of Tung Chung Fort by the private car.
Andrew SkobeNew York, NY, United States
Frank planned a wonderful trip for us on Lantau. He arranged a driver to take us and pick us up at the Ngong Ping cable car. We toured the Big Buddha and the Po Lin monastery. Frank was very flexible when we asked him to take us to the Tai O fishing village, too. We really enjoyed our visit on Lantau. Frank is a great guide and supplemented the tour with historical photos of Lantau that emphasizes the changes that have occurred. Just fabulous!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Catherine! It is good to bring your son to go to Tai O Fishing Village. Then you, your daughter and him can share the experience of the Venice in the East! Actually the Tung Chung Fort and the Tsing Ma Lookout Point, which are included in the set tour programme, are also worth visiting. Hope can go to the two hidden gems with you next time!
Very infformative tour.our guide frank was very friendly and patient...no cable car as it was under maintenance but they provided us a private van instead.a lot easier for my dad .thank you frank ..the weather was not so perfect and the travel time was long....but the view was worth it!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Glenda! We just try our best to cater your senior father's needs by Ringo's limousine and Kelvin's van. Hope you enjoy the Lantau Tour! We will try the best to upgrade the Lantau tour by covering more interesting sightseeing points and adding the private transports to the programme. We do believe that this can raise the tour's overall quality and shorten the travel time in the restricted areas on the Lantau Island.
Very friendly and well assisted tour guide. We are family with small toddler and he was very helpful and well plan. We will sure use your service again.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Sadanun! The private car tour by private guide is very suitable to the happy families with babies and seniors. On behalf of Hong Kong, we apologize for the inconvenience caused by the sudden stoppage of the Ngong Ping Cable Car from 1st May to 12th May 2015 due to the emergency maintenance.
Barbara DuffyUnited States
This was our second day with Frank and another fun day, including waiting in line for the bus and tram! The Giant Budda is unbelievable, a must see with Frank. He is very knowledgeable and blends in humor along with factual information. Don't miss this tour with Frank.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much again, Barbara! Our duty is to introduce Hong Kong to the travelers in a funny manner. With a licensed tour guide, travelers can direct proceed to cable car platform, no more ticket line to wait.
Art SegalUnited States
Frank was an excellent, knowledgeable guide who did a great job for our group of 6 senior citizens. Perfect, loud & clear English. We added HK Gardens to our itinerary, which was outstanding. Highly recommend Frank.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Art! As Frank can practice English everyday now, practice just makes perfect! Apart from the harbour view and skyscrapers, there are lots of hidden treasures, gardens, temples etc. in Hong Kong.
Rosemary M.IVINS, UTAH, United States
Frank was on time, organized, and knowledgeable. He met us at the airport and we took a taxi and public transportation during our tour. Since we had luggage, our first stop was the mall where there was coin operated luggage storage. He also accompanied us back to the mall at the end of our tour. It was raining some of the time, but we still got to do and see everything we had requested.
Carl CromeFrilsham, BERKSHIRE, United Kingdom
A most excellent Tour , Frank speaks very good English and gives a very comprehensive tour of the Island , if you have the time after the sights of Hong Kong I would recommend doing this tour
