Overall rating

The tour is highly recommended for those who are *really* interested in Buddhism. The biggest pluses are the knowledgeable guide who is able to meet and uncover all the questions (!!!) and share wisdom and skip-the-line opportunity (the line was huge even for a rainy and foggy day). The place itself is majestic, peaceful, and there are lots of relevant souvenir shops to offer traditional Chinese and Buddhists tokens to take away + tasty cafes/restaurants.

Even though it's quite a commute to get there (depending on where you're staying), it was worth seeing the Big Buddha, the Wisdom Path and the monastery. Having the skip-the-line-ticket for the cable car gave it a nice touch, like a VIP experience walking past the long queue straight to the entrance. I must have saved 30-40 min of waiting time that day. The tour guide was passionate about the sights and shared interesting facts and insights.

Second tour with get your guide, again very friendly staff on site, voucher was redeemed and all vouchers explained, we were very satisfied. Tour was great, from the gondola route over 5km just amazing, view top, we didn't see the white dolphins, it can happen, at the end to the Buddha and had a great day, thank you

Really enjoyed the day. Everything ran smoothly and it was nice doing the different places at our own pace. Unique places to visit, would recommend going. Transportation was easy to use and everyone helpful. Great day!

Was pretty easy to book and enjoy this amazing experience. When you arrived to the MRT station was pretty easy get tickets in the customer service.
