What You Can Expect

Macau Day Trip from Hong Kong

Macau Day Trip from Hong Kong

Meet your driver at your Hong Kong hotel and make your way to the ferry terminal, where you’ll board a jetfoil or catamaran for a 60-minute ride across the open sea. Your full day of sightseeing kicks off when you step ashore the former Portuguese colony of Macau.

Take a scenic drive through the Guia Circuit and see where the famed Macau Grand Prix is held each year. The tight corners and quick elevation gains make this street circuit one of the most challenging on earth.

Pay a visit to Kun Iam Temple, where a young Marco Polo studied Buddhism. Listen in as your expert guide explains the significance of a bronze figure of Kum Iam—the goddess of Mercy.

After you’ve taken in the temple, head to the top of the 11th tallest tower on earth. Entry to the observation deck is optional (own expense) but the views are worth it, so be sure to carry your camera!

Next venture into Macau’s historical center where A-Ma Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, was built in 1488. You’ll learn about classical Chinese architecture and explore the grounds before enjoying a traditional lunch at a local restaurant.

Make one last historical stop at the Ruins of St Paul—an ancient complex that used to be the site of the Cathedral of St Paul and St Paul’s College. Built in the 16th century by Christian exiles, a trip to the top of the ruin’s 66 steps offers up incredible views of the stone carvings and structural remnants around the site.

Finally, head to the Macau Casino for one last adventure and place your bets in the premiere card room. Play a hand or simply take in all of the excitement before heading back to Hong Kong by catamaran or jetfoil and returning to your hotel.

The long day is worth it on this day tour from HK to Macau. Miguel our tour guide was excellent, funny and kept the tour moving along all day. Would have like to spend more time in the old town portion of Macau vs seeing the casino, but all in all I highly recommend this tour to anyone wanting a quick overview of the area. I'm looking forward to returning and exploring more of this interesting city on my own.

This was a great tour! our guide Cisco was so engaging and charismatic. we really got to see the amazing sites of Macau with him. He kept the tour moving and the fact that he can speak all these languages made it super entertaining. The tour was great but I would recommend that instead of a lunch at a hotel, that a more authentic experience can be had. I would have liked to have lunch a little more locally then a buffet lunch at a hotel. that would be my one change.

The whole day was great! The guide, Mario, was very knowledgeable and entertaining. He was so good he even organised for us to be viewing the Macau Tower when someone bungee jumped off it! Haha! The visit to the Venetian Casino and the Grand Canals of Shoppes was something to remember. It was a great day out from start to finish.
