I love Hong Kong and have been there before but my prior trip to Lantau was with a bus full of people on a dreary day. We couldn't even see the Buddha on my first visit. This tour was just a few friends and our guide, Jacky, who made every moment fun and interesting. It was a beautiful, clear day too.

We also did an evening tour of markets and food vendors where we tasted some local snacks and had dinner at a restaurant that only a local would have been able to find.

The best use of your time if you want to cover Lantau island efficiently. We arrived early morning to HK airport and went directly to the tour. Jackie was very nice, reliable and helpful. I would highly recommend him. His van has tourism access to the roads and you cover a lot in a morning.

We recently returned from a cruise which originated in Hong Kong. Prior to the cruise we spent three days in the Tsim Sha Tsui area. Since our group of four long-time friends had previously visited Hong Kong’s major tourist sites we reserved only one tour during our stay. We booked a five hour private car tour to Lantau Island via Viatour. “This is Asia Tours” actually provided the tour and its owner Jacky was our guide and driver. The tour was exactly as advertised and was exactly what we were wanting. Jacky was knowledgeable about Lantau Island’s history and the island’s current status. He provided excellent commentary during the drive to the island. Within an hour we transitioned from the hectic urban nature of the city to the quieter and mostly rural island environment.

Our first stop was at a beautiful reservoir; we then drove up to the base of the Big Buddha and climbed more than 250 stops to the top. Jacky provided excellent details about the Big Buddha during the climb. Once we reached the summit, Jacky described in detail the history of the construction of the temple and he explained the nature of the various smaller sculptures surrounding the Big Buddha. The descent was also slow and peppered with interesting tidbits that Jacky shared with us. We then walked to the nearby Po Lin Monastery and spent considerable time outside the Grand Hall of 10,000 Buddhas where Jacky shared more background information about its history and Buddhism.

We then drove from the inland setting to the far western coast of the island to the Tai O fishing village where Jacky shared with us the long history of the small enclave which vastly differs from the modern, bustling city of Hong Kong. We walked through the village and then took a boat ride out to open waters where we saw pink dolphins and the sprawling Hong Kong airport in the distance. We then walked through another area of the village to the Kwan Tai Temple which dates back to the late 18th century. After watching the sunset over the village, we walked back to Jacky’s comfortable van for the one hour drive back to our hotel in Hong Kong.

Jacky provided a flawless afternoon visit to Lantau Island. His commentary and descriptions were excellent. As an added bonus, he took great photos of us as we explored the island with him and those photos will provide great reminders of our tour. Jacky and his “This is Asia Tour” company helped us see a part of Hong Kong that was so different from our previous tourist experiences in Hong Kong.

Pros of this tour: travel in an air conditioned van on a very hot day, restricted road access to sites, and taking us straight to the Tai O village and Big Buddha very convenient. Cons- we weren’t fans of our tour guide, Jacky. Maybe its because we had 3 other tours on this vacation that were amazing and the tour guides so personable and accommodating, but Jacky did not reach out in advance and confirm pickup location and time. I emailed with no response and then called the night before to find out what time to be ready. Other tours provided chilled water waiting for us, he had water but was very warm. we felt like he was “phoning it in”, as in he was just checking the boxes. Other tour guides really engaged us and the kids, and matched our pace and interested. With this tour we felt like we were on a big bus tour, and pushed on his schedule. We enjoyed seeing the fishing village a lot, it was very interesting to learn about local customs. The history or Big Buddha and the Po Lin Monastary was worth seeing. Overall good tour, but not a favorite.

I had a few days in Hong Kong with my mum, and on the last day we arranged to have a tour with Jacky to see Lantau Island, the Big Buddha and the Tai O fishing village. we also did the 360 cable car ride. When you get onto the cable car, Jacky meets you the other end in his car ready and waiting.

Excellent tour Jacky was great, collected us from our hotel and after the tour dropped us at the airport for our flight onto Perth. He was very accommodating his knowledge was great of the areas we visited. Comfortable car everything ran smoothly, I would love to go back to Hong Kong and if/when I do I would use Jacky again. Thanks Jacky for an excellent tour !!!

We had a limited time in HongKong and wanted to see as much as we could and Jacky more than delivered. He was knowledgeable, punctual and pleasant. We didn’t realize our daughter left her sunglasses in the back of the car until several hours after Jacky dropped us back at our hotel and he immediately came back and returned them.
Great guy, great personalized tour. Well worth it!

We requested Liz our tour guide to drop us off Hongkong Disneyland instead of returning to our hotel in Kowloon, and she agreed. However, after the cable car ride we were informed that the van can no longer bring us to Disneyland which is about 15 minutes away and she escorted us to a taxi. Considering that we paid $760 for the tour and it includes a round trip transfer then they should have at least brought us to Disney. We were just following her pace throughout the morning.

Dear xandrarp: First I would like to apologise on what had happened with your experience. Our Lantau driving tour was designed for as 5 hours as this was an appropriate timing in visiting the Tai O fishing village which all our guests loved and of course the most popular icon on the island The Big Buddha. This tour was designed to shorten your time in visiting these two locations as it is some distance away from the city, most tourists takes a full day to see just these two locations where many don't see the point why it takes so long. The selling point of this tour was to have the direct access to be able to drive into the restricted roads of South Lantau to get to these locations directly from your hotel and back without the hassle of public transports or cable car. On the day, our guide Liz did a great job in showing you as much as these two locations has to offer and you were also told by Liz that 26th December was one of our busiest days of the year where the vehicle and the guide had other commitments in the afternoon. It was obvious to Liz that you all enjoyed the tour and felt the tour was fantastic. There were at least two occasions where Liz had mentioned to you that we are limited to 5 hours on this tour and you were acknowledged on the matter but yet still slow paced to make a move. We were not trying to hassle you but at least a smoother movement on a regular pace would not have resulted this. If it is only the taxi fare you are not happy about we are happy to pay you back for the ride to Disneyland. However, our work is focused on the tour itself showing you the best of the locations with its histories and backgrounds. Definitely very enjoyable (as stated on many of our reviews of this tour) should you follow our rhythm.

Jacky is an outstanding tour guide. When we revisit Hong Kong, we will definitely hire him again. He picked up my wife and I and our friends from the Shangri-La hotel and drove us to Langau Island for a half day tour before taking us to the Airport. From start to finish he was: on time, well prepared, interesting, funny, and knew the history and relevant facts about the places we visited -- primarily the Tai O fishing village and the giant Tian Tam buddha. He has permission to drive his private vehicle on the island. Touring in his Mercedes sedan versus a large bus with was fantastic. If you want a fantastic tour of Hong Kong, definitely consider Jacky

My wife and I visited Hong Kong for the first time last month and were so fortunate to have been introduced to This Is Asia Tours by a friend in California who had used their services, Jacky Wong in particular.

Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable, spoke great English, and was extremely accommodating as we put together an optimal itinerary for our tour. The trip to the Big Buddha is a must see.

We also took a 3-hour walking tour with Jacky and it was both extremely informative and a great workout. I am sure we saw things from an insiders perspective that most would not get on the average tour.

Upon return to the US I contacted our travel agent to pass on what a terrific experience we had and recommended that they refer customers to This is Asia Tours.
