can't beat the view of Hong Kong skyline!
A very well organised tour. The harbour cruise went on for a lot longer that I expected, giving us a chance to view the impressive skylines of both Hong Kong and Kowloon at night. Dinner at the Jumbo Floating Restaurant was excellent.
Excellent tour. Great way to see the skyline and get a feel for Hong Kong. Free drinks on the boat. Jumbo experience good also. Food good quality, very tasty. I am allergic to fish but the Tour Guide organised separate dishes for me. Very well organised, only slight negative was pick up, as it is not completely clear exactly where one waits for this round the pier, though we chose the right spot.
Very small group for this trip made us all feel special and selected. Meal at the restaurant was excellent, couldn't fault the food or service. Views superb, seeing the night fall. Had time to look around and take great photos too afterwards. Then travelled back down and into the tunnel to Kowloon to go to Stanley Market. Had about 40/50 mins to explore, fun to see and haggle-amazing! Then onto collect our boat. Although were few others on this boat, very quiet. Drinks were okay but the guide was very informative, pointing out all sorts of things in the night scene, great way to see the skyline in the dark, all,lit up. Well,worth the money-all of it. Even my children enjoyed it, but a late night!
What a great way to spend an evening, cruising beautiful Victoria Harbour...what an amazing skyline! After the cruise, on to delicious dinner at the famous Jumbo Restaurant. We loved this experience!
Well worth doing. The skyline is amazing both pre and post sunset.
The cruise was great and the Hong Kong skyline absolutely wonderful! The meal was tasty and the only reason the rating was not 5* was because we had to be rushed over the food to keep to the tour timescales. We would have preferred a little more time over dinner and drinks. Overall an enjoyable evening.
Pick-up was organized and on time. Boat tour lasted exactly one hour and was fine with great views of the skyline. Drink service was not very good, with only one bartender to serve the entire boat...good thing the boat was only half full. Dinner at Jumbo was a barely passable experience due to average food quality, and feeling of being part of 1000's of people being processed through the dinner program as fast as possible. The floating restaurant is visually interesting. but now that it is almost hidden from view by all the surrounding marina and big boats it is not the grand site it used to be. View from the peak midpoint was fine, but no real explanation of anything we were looking at. Guide was generally helpful and had good attitude and was a plus for the trip.
All in all it was worth a visit and a must do when in Hong Kong but the meal was particularly rushed. No fault of Viator's. Jumbo staff were obviously told to 'ship em in and ship em out'. Our evening consisted of a few different courses of food, which was nice, nothing special, but I guess you don't go there for the food?? We were literally there 1.25 hrs. Then back on the boat. Viator team then took us half way up Victoria Peak to witness the beautiful night skyline. Would I recommend this trip? I guess so. I wouldn't rave about it but as I said above, it's a must do when in HKG.
This was a disappointing trip for us. Firstly, the food on the Jumbo was very disappointing. Hong Kong being a much celebrated city for Chinese/Cantonese cuisines, what we were served was an insult to this city and our palate. There are two view points at the Peak and we were taken to the one which offers mediocre views of HK skyline. This represents a disservice to other tourists who may not get another chance to go to the other view point (which is only a very short distance away) due to time constraint. The cruise on the junk boat was good. Viator's video on this package is a poor and rather misleading representation of the actual trip. The meal was simply appalling compared to what is in the video and the view point at the Peak we went was not the one in the video. Overall, and objectively, it was a huge disappointment for all of us. There were three of us and all of us were disappointed. In other words, it is not an isolated opinion.
The tour guide was amazing and he did an amazing job! but i feel the pictures for the tour promotion are misleading as we missed both showings of the light show over the hong Kong skyline which we are very disappointed by although still beautiful at night this was a let down of the tour.
