No dolphins today, but that's ok. Didn't take anything away from the nice views we had on the boat ride. Absolutely loved the island tour, it was just great, lots of stairs to go see the Buddha but we survived. The tour guide Christina was absolutely wonderful, lots of stories to listen. Definitely recommend ending the tour with the cable car, totally worth it. 11/10 would recommend anyone to take this tour.

Our taxi was slightly stuck in traffic and our tour guide was very understanding and patience cannot fault him. Excursion itself was great and very informative although the weather was not the best still manage to get some great pictures. Lunch was decent too!

Very nice activity Christina our guide was great and gave us lots of explanations We didn't see any dolphins but the tour was still great We would just have to plan for the cable because in the price

A great experience and I highly recommend to anyone visiting Hong Kong and wanting to see the big buddha.

It was really interesting to go outside of the city to see more natural landscapes.
