Know More about this tour

After your driver picks you up from your hotel, head to the ferry terminal to board a catamaran or jetfoil. Enjoy the 60-minute ride and admire the landscapes of both Hong Kong and Macau.

Upon arrival in Macau, a former Portuguese colony, begin your full-day sightseeing tour with a scenic drive along the Guia Circuit, where the Macau Grand Prix is held annually. Located along the Macau Peninsula, the street circuit is considered one of the world’s most challenging circuits, due to its elevation gain and tight corners.

Stop at Kun Iam Temple – where Marco Polo studied Buddhism – and gaze at the statue of Kum Iam, the Goddess of Mercy. Listen to your guide's informative remarks as you admire the bronze figure, which stands 66 feet (20 meters) high in embroidered silk, flanked by eighteen Buddhas.

Re-board your vehicle and proceed to Macau Tower, the 11th tallest tower in the world. Have your camera at the ready to capture this iconic Macau site, which reaches an astonishing height of 1,108 feet (338 meters)! Entry to the observation deck is optional (own expense).
Your guide will take you to Macau's historical center to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of A-Ma Temple, a graceful sanctuary built in 1488 in honor of Matsu, the goddess of seafarers. As you explore the halls guarded by stone lions, admire classical Chinese architectural features and hear folktales about the goddess who blesses and protects fishermen. Afterward, enjoy an international buffet lunch in a restaurant expertly selected by your guide.

Continue on to another World Heritage Site, the Ruins of St Paul, a 16th-century complex that originally included St Paul's College and the Cathedral of St Paul. Walk up the 66 steps to see the evocative remnants and imposing facade of this historical church, designed by Italians and built by Japanese Christian exiles. Admire the still-remarkable details, including intricate stone carvings and sculptures. Then, follow your guide on a short walk to the city center, designated another UNESCO World Heritage Site. Stroll along charming cobblestone streets, and pass quaint shops and local restaurants, in this pedestrian enclave.

Before leaving Macau, try your luck at the gambling tables of the world-famous Macau Casino. In this premiere card room, you can join one of the daily poker tournaments or play blackjack, Spanish 21, mini baccarat and more! After your comprehensive tour of Macau, return to Hong Kong via the jetfoil or catamaran, followed by drop-off at your Hong Kong hotel.

  • AMAZING! Mario was incredible. Would not have missed this for anything!!!

  • This was an excellent day with Cisco

    We would recommend it to anyone along with the Portuguese tarts

  • We loved our tour guide! Although this was a big-group tour, our guide made sure that there was something for everyone. We were able to see so much of Macau in such a short time, which we definitely would not have been able to do ourselves. One thing to note was that time is spent going up to the top of the Macau Tower, so if you don't like heights, about 30 minutes is spent waiting at the bottom part of the tower if you decide not to go up. However, if you want a great view, the tower is a fun, unique experience. My partner stayed at the bottom of the tower, but I went up and saw some great views along with getting to stand right on the other side of the window where bungee jumpers jump off the tower. It was so cool to see them jump so close! The Tower, combined with the UNESCO sites and temple made the tour worth it. The tour guide also had the group stop by a great bakery so that we were able to get a taste of local culture.

  • The tour guide was knowledgeable and great--very entertaining character. My issue with the tour is Macau itself. There's not much to see. Comes across as a low-scale Las Vegas of the Orient. Full of stoic faced Chinese gamblers in seedy looking casinos, or out shopping in loud noisy droves. Not worth it. Getting through customs is hell.

  • Our recent trip to Macau was a fun day. We visited a casino early so we could move on. I hoped we wouldn't spend too much time there.
    Luckily we got a flash mob of violinists at the casino - they were great. We saw a bungey jump up close. We visited the old part of Macau with the heavy rain cloud as a back drop. Everything went smoothly. Our guide was knowledgeable and funny. Would highly recommend this trip.

  • I really enjoyed the tour guide and the sights were very nice. The group size was too large (32) and the hotel lunch was not authentic, cold, and below average. I would rate it a 3 because of group size, but the guide was fantastic so I give it a 4.

  • Good guide... good ride.. in general all was more than good!!!

  • The trip to Macau was really awesome. Mario is a super host. He is knowledge of the area and direct commentary and delivers with a great deal of humor. While the casins were the least interested aspect of the trip. This history lesson was well worth a the full day adventure. On another note while the ferry is pretty cool. This group tour seats guest in the middle 4 seats not window view and the departure and arrival into Hong Kong is a view you'll want to observe. The upside is -- there is wi-fi on the ferry! Lunch was delish and you'll get to know your tour mates. Be prepared to walk the UNESCO site is one to be view and the area is crowded. I skipped the Casino free time and had libations not included in the hotel lounge until it was time to depart.

  • Pick up at the hotel and upon return right on schedule. Ferry ride was enjoyable. At Macao we were met by Mario a most gracious guide.
    We hit the Venicion casino and had time to wonder and do pics. As we rode our bus Mario gave us a slew of info and fun facts about Macao. A local bakery and souvenir shop gave us a chance to do some shopping. Lunch was a delicious buffet. The Tower, St. Paul's church were interesting. Walking the old city was a treat. My only could of done without was Jackie Chans casino to look at gold bars.
    Very grateful also to meet some fun co travelers. Mario and our bus driver took good care of us. My thanks to them. Good deal.

  • We saw alot of things. Guide was very good, spoke good English. Ferries were nice.
