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.

I really enjoyed this tour. Walking pace was good. The tour guide we had needs lessons on using a camera. When tourist want a photo, to remember the trip, the guide can make the difference of a great photo of a bad one, which makes for a bad memory..but I would take this tour again

This is definitely worth a visit. So pleaseed we went on a guided tour and enjoyed our guide, Mario, a Portuguese local to Macau for about 33years. If you follow Mario and start with visiting the Venetian, a quick visit to the place, he is able to show you more of the other areas of Macau. We also went up to the Macau Tower, you can choose to stay at the bottom and wait 40 mins or go up with him and pay the fee to go up there where you can see people doing bunny jump with AJHackett, the biggest bungy jump in the world at the moment...he will show you where Macau ends and where mainland China starts, the huge bridges and buildings being built. Amazing view of Macau. We also went to the old city, where only the remains of St Paul Cathedral facade. Also saw the original landing of the Portuguese at the Chinese temple, had the famous Portuguese tarts. Quite a big day, ferry across and back to Macau took an hour each way.

We were picked up from hotel on time. We were dropped off to take a scenic cruise to Macau. We were received in Macau by our guide. The whole tour gave us a glimpse of Macau. I guess only issue is if you want to,spend more time in casino or St Johns Cathedral or any other places you might want to travel on your own. Also the tour is pretty long and a bit exhausting. This tour served my purpose perfectly and gave me a good introduction to Macau. I would highly recommend this tour.

I highly recommend this tour. There are people to guide you every step of the way, from pickup in Hong Kong to Macau and back to Hong Kong. Mario is an excellent guide. He has lived in Macau for more than 30 years, and really knows the city well. Besides showing the main sights, he also provides great insight into life before and after the handover -- and he knows a great place to get Portuguese egg tarts.
