My wonderful hiking trip ⛰ would not have been possible without Rory as my excellent guide to the ins and outs and the beautiful trails of the ⛰ complex. For those four hours we were jungle explorers of the Hong Kong hinterlands, befriending mock vipers and pregnant, -bellied salamanders . And enjoying the lush greenery and rich verdure of our wild and untamed surroundings, and we are warmly welcomed by the au naturale and cooly refreshung shower of waterfalls ️ offered by the wondrously beauteous works of nature ! It is at times tiring tho not exhaustingly so, but absolutely worth breaking a sweat for! One will most certainly gain a greater perspective on life after this simple yet great experience!

Ben was great, very helpful and really tried hard to make sure we hadvthe best experience according to our individual needs.

Great deal for its price, ease of redeeming tickets and swift entrance into the park.

Very easy to setup. Excellent way to have internet access!

Worked perfectly. Used in Thailand: Bangkok and Koh Samui.
