Thank You for a great experience,interesting Hong Kong and Macau.In two busy days I visited most possible important places.
The pass was great value, it allowed me to do and see so many more things that Hong Kong had to offer than I thought possible in my short stay. My favorite things were the tour of the 8th Estate winery followed by tasting of great wine 'made in Hong Kong' and the dim sum cooking class in a really local restaurant. The card was very easy to use and had no problems with attractions accepting it.
f you are looking for sightseeing rather than just shopping or theme park in Hong Kong, the See Hong Kong Pass is a very good choice and provides huge savings. 1-day pass costs only $399 and I did 4 activities which are worth around $700, quite a good deal, right?
I started the day early and joined a Big Bus Tour (Hong Kong Island). The bus took me to the Peak Tram Station where I did a free round trip of the Peak Tram. And then headed to the Kowloon side to have a free Dim Sum lunch at a very cool Chinese restaurant. Got some time left, I did some shopping at the Kowloon station shopping mall and then went to the DHL Hong Kong Balloon nearby to see the beautiful skyline of the city at 100m high.
As I travel by myself, I really love to explore the city and get to try every as much as possible. Great that the pass has around free 20 activities to choose from , so it is quite flexible for trip planning. If I got one more day, I will definitely get a 2-day pass to see more, especially the Big Bus Stanley Tour and the wine tasting activity!
If visitors are Seniors, (that is aged over 65 years), this deal is NOT the saving it is cracked up to be, and even worse if you are staying in Kowloon. We suggest buyers read the fine print VERY CAREFULLY, get themselves an Octopus card on arrival, and watch out on the MTR for their frequent special deals. Even the Peak Tram deal is of little assistance when you arrive at the terminus, as there are no separate queues for ticket holders, especially in busy times (read public holidays), unless you also purchase the Madame Tussaud's deal at the same time.
For those of you who only a few days in Hong Kong and Macao, you can purchase this offer as this will guide you to some of the main tourist attractions in both places. It is easy to use and definitely save your time to look around. Additional information, this I-Venture card only gives you free access to the listed location only, on how you get there you need to get your own direction and transportation. But don't worry, it's easy.
Nice package. Really enjoyed Victoria Harbor Cruise and trip to Macau. Regretfully, was not able to take advantage of the dim sum class( 8 person minimum ) or feng shui session (limited scheduling). Also, pass would be significantly improved and more convenient if it were possible to register at one site and at one time for all attractions. These changes would make the package five stars.
Note from Viator: Note from Viator: Thank you for your review. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced while using this pass. We have contacted the tour company and have addressed your concern with them. Thank you for helping us ensure the quality of our tours.
Airport transfers were not suitable for tourist not familiar with Hong Kong public transport route. Macau tour was quite good.
For us this was a waste of money,redemption of vouchers is a big problem if you only have a short time.maybe that is why a month is allowed to use this.We redeemed the Peak tickets at the airport,the Macou tickets are only redeemable on Hong Kong Island,the hop on/off bus finishes early so to use it start early in the day .the tower was great,StPauls and the Fort are worth the walk. the Lantau Island cable car and the big bhudda are well worth the time.We didn't have time to redeem all our vouchers so won't recommend for short term visits. redemption should be at one place.
Bhim: some difficulty, as our first trip to HK, in finding the places to confirm tickets. The airport bus is not conducive to carrying luggage, also we did not know where to get the bus from or to, to get to our hotel. (We got the train and a taxi.) Unable to use voucher in restaurant in Macau as it was closed.
So much to see and do in Hong Kong probably not the best value of seeing in and around the city and restriction of time made it difficult to fit things in.
Don't really recommend buying this pass. So much trouble to redeem the voucher for tickets. Not a great choice of activities. Better off doing individual tours. The open deck bus tour was terrible and we ended up going with their opposition. We were the only 2 on the harbour cruise so no commentary.
Was disappointed with the fact that we had to run all around Hong Kong and Kowloon to activate our entry passes to the various venues.
Would have been a whole lot better had we been able to pick them up all at the same time from the one location.
The day we tried to utilise our Macau Ferry one way pass, As we were staying in Kowloon and it was a wet miserable day, decided to go to the Kowloon ferry departure point (SAME COMPANY AS HONG KONG SIDE)
They refused to acknowledge the pass, so we purchased two tickets (even though we had free ones)
Due to all the inconvenience caused through having to run around from here to there, we did take advantage of all that we could have.
Being senior citizens, it all became just too hard.
Therefore we would not recommend this deal to anyone.
