Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour

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 an international buffet 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.

Great tour! The weather was terrible on the day I went, but not anyone's fault. Went to the top of Macau Tower, view was good what I could see. Went to the biggest and crowded casino, but no time to gamble, just walked through. Our tour guide seemed to have a problem with certain people that love to come to Macau just to gamble. Wish we had more time in the casino. Enjoyed the rest of the tour. Buffett lunch was just OK. Guide said we were having a late lunch, which we did at about 230p. He wanted to avoid the big crowds, but being that it was the ending of the buffet, it seemed like to food wasn't as hot as it should've been. Boat ride going from Kowloon to Macau was smooth and a great ride, but the return boat ride back was a little rough due to the weather. If you get seasick, make sure you're prepared. Definitely, recommend this tour, just pray for good weather, because views would be Amazing!

The tour was very well organised. We were picked up from, and returned to our hotel by taxi. Our guide Cisco was brilliant, he explained the need to meet up at the times he set and not keep everyone waiting. He gave us a great deal of information about everything we saw, he was very patient and happy to answer questions. As there was a lot to see we were given varying amounts of time at each location but we never felt hurried and there was plenty of time for photography. The lunch was very good with every taste was catered for. All in all we thought it was very good value and would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking about visiting Macao.

A long but well organised and insightful day with a brilliant guide Mario. A highly recommended way of experience the diversity that is the Macau SAR area - very different from both Hong Kong and mainland China
