This tour was very good.
good trip, excellent meal but a little more directed to the Seafood market than the wanted night cruise
It was raining heavily that day so we decided not to do the tour as my husband is asmátic and a cruise in victoria Harbour and walking through a village would not be the most aproppiate for him
Nice trip on the boat cruising hk habor. The food at the restaurant was ok, not as good as I expected; but for price of the tour package is reasonable.
cruise was pleasant food at the restraunt was very good and our guide was excellent she handled an awkward situation with some client who had too much to drink very well
I sat on the upper level to see the harbor sites..Could not hear 1 word the tour guide was saying, mostly because te people were more concerned about getting their drinks and chips. Unfortunately the weather was cold and very hazy to see the skyline The dinner was amazing . My friend and I were the only Americans and sat with a couple and their family who were on vacation from Beijing. The husband spoke English, and I exchanged e-mails with so we could correspond. Going through the market was fascinating..Gide very sweet and spoke very good English. Woud have liked to have heard more about the harbor.
Our party of four enjoyed the trip on the harbor but were not impressed with the the frantic speed with which the meal was served or the fact that we had 10 people on our table and the quantity of each dish served was not sufficient to give each a fair portion.
This was not what I expected, the boat took us to eat and then back. Did not get to see the fireworks in the Harbor. Dinner was good, but I would rather have stayed on the boat and seen the fireworks.
The title is a little misleading. We thought we would enjoy a cruise and get a chance to see the festiival of lights. The dinner was very good, but a lot of time was spent getting to and returning from the restaurant.
Although everything was fine, I found having to leave the boat for the meal was not all that much fun. I enjoyed seeing the fishing village and harbour, but somehow the trip seemed disjointed and would have been better either as a separate harbour cruise or a fishing village/and dinner.
Lovely cruise. Coupled with the X'mas season, the buildings lining the riverbank was spectacularly lit. Beautiful.
The commentary (in English) was most disappointing. The announcer's reading of the script was most difficult to grasp and we had trouble trying to to understand what was said. Nothing personal - but the tour operator should hv chosen another announcer with fluent English, as this tour caters mainly to foreign tourists.
Seafood dinner. Nothing to shout about. I had better meals on 'ordinary' HK eateries. This was supposed to be a "fresh seafood" eating experience - turned out to be a 'run-of-the-mill-for tourist-traps' type "restaurant". The operator should place more emphasis on the quality of the food served. After all, Chinese cuisine remains the world's most sought after cuisine. Must improve (restaurant selection)!
The walk getting to the restaurant is really 'cool'. Sight to behold - with all the various live sea creatures in running seawater beautifully displayed!
Overall - an enjoyable experience.

Thought the alcohol was all included but only on the boat Had to walk 15 mins to the restaurant which was ok for us but one of our party had crutches and he wasnt told this Was very hard for him Meal was ok but could have got better in australia for that price Comentry was hard to understand.
This was not as good as we thought ..The short cruise to Lei Yue Mun was nice taking in the views of the city and walking through the seafood village was good , you dont get to sample any seafood and the 9 course dinner all comes out at once in the first 10 mins and the food is not the best , then you are told to stay in the restaurant until the boat arrives and with the food coming out all at once you have to sit there for a long time with nothing to look at .... You have 1 wine with dinner( you would not order again) we decided to order 1 beer each and we ended up paying AUD$35 ..walking back through the market I bought some strawberries AUD $12 ...Back on the boat we thought we would order a vodka and lemonade after our night seemed to be on rip off after another ... Definatly no vodka in those bottles ...It was a shame as our Hong Kong trip was amazing but this we just felt a little ripped ...We had a laugh about it as there is not much else you can do ..

Very poor guide. She was disorganized and made no contact with the small group of 6 during the harbour tour and rushed us through the fish market without explaining what any of the more exotic varieties of shellfish etc. were. The 9 course banquet didn't compare with a similar meal in many a decent Chinese restaurant in the UK. The best part of the tour was the spectacular harbour light show on the return trip and that was self explanatory.
