We really enjoyed it. I think I expected a bit more but was satisfied with the trip.
I felt the laser lights got a little bit lost as there are so many other lights they didn't appear as strongly as I expected. However, the night view of Hong Kong city on on side and Kowloon on the other side of the harbour was spectacular and the cruise was very pleasant indeed.
Very entertaining, but take a coat, as it can get cold even at warmer times of the year on the boat.
A great way to see the Christmas lights on the harbour.
I probably didn't need a cruise to enjoy this show, the viewing platform at the Star Ferry Terminal at Kowloon would have been enough. But I did not regret it anyway.

A little difficult making contact in the meeting point.

We arrived at the clock tower at the Kowloon Public Pier about 15 minutes prior to departure, and there was no signage or anyone to direct us to the proper pier. Despite the wind and rain on the night we were there, we stood out on deck in our rain gear and enjoyed the light show. You really cannot appreciate the show from inside the boat as the windows are not clear enough. We had difficulty understanding the commentary for the tour after the light show, which was provided in English with a Scandinavian accent.
The cruise was good. It was a nice show, good for the whole family. The cruise had good free drinks.
The light show wasn't quite as spectacular as expected, but the boat was positioned brilliantly to view it. The trip down the coast of the island and back up along Kowloon was lovely to sit back and watch.
This cruise was very good.
We specifically booked this tour as the advertisement said we were going on a junk, and also there was a photo of a junk in the picture - it was my friend's birthday and she wanted specifically to go on the junk. When we arrived at the wharf - it was not a junk at all. The beautiful junk with the red sails came and went, however was from another tour company. This was false advertising and needs to be amended. That being said the tour itself was good.
Great activity. However I was expecting more than it was offered. When you hear about show of lights you do expect something like Disneyland offers in the same area. Beside the breath taking views of the lited buildings in the mirror of waters there was not too much of a show. There was a set of 6 search lights and a few skinny laser lights. Open bar was great with free wine, beers and sodas. Overall it was a good activity complementary with the price we paid.
Cloud cover too low to see the lights! Nevertheless the staff were cheerful, pleasant end efficient; of course the clouds were not Viator's fault, though the lights were meant to be a special treat at the end of our holiday.
I thought this was good value for money if you're interested in taking a tour of the harbour. If you only want to see the lights, goto Kowloon and watch from that side. To be honest, the lights are already impressive... Come 8pm, the symphony is a bit of an anti-climax!
Nice way to see Hong Kong by night. Boat was good - lights show average.
Unfortunately it was very misty so the light show was not as spectacular as it can be but we still enjoyed the cruise around the harbour. |It would be helpful to have a representative on the pier as many boats coming in and out and it is not clear which one to take. The free flow bar is great but the barman constantly asking for tips rather annoying, of course we will tip but not for every drink !
Actually the pictures and videos of the laser and light-show were a bit more promising than reality. But taking this tour was a good decision, as it was only chance to see both sides of the harbour. It was a bit too cold that evening, so "drink.buffet" was not so needed. Anyway: I got what I was hoping to get. so: thank you!
Not what I expected, the light show was ok but nothing to really shout about in my opinion
The trip does provide a good tour of the harbour and allows views to be seen that you do not normally see from Kowloon
