Why Travelers Choose This Tour

This tour includes a ride around Guia Circuit—the location of the Macau Grand Prix.
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.

Our tour guide was very good. He gave us many facts about Macau. I especially enjoyed seeing all the places to gamble and hear how the city has grown. Tour went by fast / not boring. comfortable tour bus. I would recommend.

NOTE: This is a tour where you need to bring your passports, which was clearly stated. The tour began on a sour note in that we were picked up late from our hotel and, therefore, missed our 8:30 am ferry to Macau. So, by the time we caught the next ferry at 9:15 am, and had everyone accounted for, our tour didn’t actually begin until 11:00 am! That showed poor planning. We wasted so much time just getting to Macau. We finally arrived in Macau and met our tour guide, Mario, who took us to the Venetian Casino, said to be the largest casino in the world.Then, we went up to the Macau Sky Tower and watched as the young people bunji jump at $500.00 a jump, or $100.00 a second. That was very interesting.After that, we stopped to see the UNESCO Heritage Ama Temple, bought some pastries, took a picture of the Sun Goddess and then had a relatively nice Chinese lunch around 2:30 pm. We walked to the Ruins of St. Paul’s Cathedral built in the 1600’s. It has a Spanish Steps view similar to that in Rome. There we walked through the very crowded narrow streets and got on the bus to take us back to the ferry, where we said goodbye to Mario. We began our Hong Kong return around 5:45 pm, a one hour trip where we met another guide who took us to our hotel around 8:00 pm where our driver dropped us off in front of our hotel. It was a long day.The Chinese lunch was mediocre at best and, as with our previous day tour, there was a lot of wasted time. We were given only 15 minutes of free time at a very small souvenir shop where the quantity and quality were lacking.A big gripe among the people on our tour was the stereotypical and insensitive ethnic comments and sometimes-rude behavior toward supposedly Mainland Chinese by our tour guide. It made many of us uncomfortable. Granted there were many people crowded in very narrow streets, but to openly yell at the Chinese in front of us was really unacceptable. We didn’t come to Hong Kong or Macau to hear about his frustrating interactions with the Mainland Chinese as he was Portuguese. And while I understand his frustrations with large Mainland Chinese tourists who were pretty pushy and aggressive, the tour guide should have had more restraint.Other than the wasted time, the tour was fine. It wasn’t excellent, but I’m glad I had a chance to visit Macau.

Cisco led a fast paced informative tour of Macau. Went into the Venetian which looks about the same as Vegas. Given an opportunity to go up the Macau Tower for an extra fee. It was a pretty clear day and an aerial view is always helpful. He spent a little to much time obsessed with the jumpers. I would have spent more time enjoying the view by going to 58th floor on my own if I hd it to do over again. Lunch was just ok. The custard egg tarts we could buy were delicious. Also went to Grand Emperor Casino which was more interesting to me but, only saw the lobby. Buildings were interesting in Old part of Macau. The jet boat over to Macau was wonderful and operated like an airplane with assigned seats. You can not go outside on this ferry. Very quiet ride as you go zooming past other vessels.

This was a fun tour. A good refresher from my last trip several years ago.

a very well organized tour and a great day overall, even though we got poured on while visiting the temple. Timely pick ups and clear instructions on where to go/what to do to board a speed boat. Diverse stops in Macao - casino, statues, temple, shops, views, tower, etc. Mario, the tour guide, is very opinionated, knowledgeable and funny.

The tour guide kept having cigarette breaks in full view of us which isn't very savoury. There was no pick up from our HK Island hotel so we took a taxi to the nominated hotel. It was an early 7.30am pickup and we travelled on two coaches for over an hour and a half before arriving at the ferry terminal for a 9.45am ferry crossing. We later realised that the metro station was nearby so we returned using that and it only took 30 minutes! It would have been nice if the office staff had made the suggestion to us. The buffet lunchh was low quality and we spent too long at the hotel venue, everyone was just hanging around the foyer after lunch. Other than that, it was a good day trip.

A full day touring exotic Macau. The tour moved at a perfect pace for my family of four. Consideration for short breaks was given throughout the day and yet we were able to cover a lot of ground.
I highly recommend this tour!

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!

So no shopping means NO SHOPPING. We booked the historical tour which began at a casino shopping center!
Felt the morning was somewhat wasted on trivial things not historical. Once we got to the temple things got better in old Macau.
But when we got off the bus to walk to the most visited site, the Cathedral wall, we ended up waiting for those in the group who went shopping! Five busses got off and were now ahead of us. Guide was good, but oftentimes repetitive. Would I recommend? No or perhaps, as there are certain points worthy of trip. I could have done all of this on my own and not been saddled in a cramped bus.
