This tour requires you to be physically fit. You will be walking between 5 and 10km over the course of the day. How far we walk will depend on how much walking you want to do at Tai O. We will be going at a slow pace, across flat land but you do need to be in reasonable health. If you wish to visit the Big Buddha up close you will need to be able to climb up 268 steps!
Please be aware that the Big Buddha is not in the city, it is in the Lantau National Park. This means that you will need to travel to Lantau which is approximately one hour away from downtown Hong Kong. Please also note that if you book a hotel pick-up it is still a walking tour, not a car tour which means that you will be still be traveling around using the excellent public transport system.
Private car transfers from your hotel/cruise terminal to the Ngong Ping Cable Car and back from Tai O can be added to tours. Our cars take 6 passengers including your guide. Adding a transfer back from Tai O ensures a relaxing end to what can be a tiring day.
Kowloon hotels: One way HK$1150, two-way HK$1600

Whilst this is a wonderful day out of the city and is often the highlight of people's time in Hong Kong please do not book this tour if you do not wish to spend 3 hours of your day traveling to and from the Lantau National Park.
