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.

  • This tour was absolutely wonderful and worth every penny!! Sisco was a very good and informative tour guide. Hes very funny too :). They make sure from minute u get picked up till the moment your going home that you are safe and well!

  • As with most of these quick day excursions, the quality of the experience was very much a function of the tour guide and Mario was very good indeed. Funny, knowledgeable and a bit quirky, he made the experience. I would recommend a tour with him anytime. The only significant glitch for us was the pick up. We were given a rather vague pick up point a hotel lobby in a hotel that has more than one lobby and the contact person was 10 minutes late so that caused some anxiety. A small thing to remedy, though.

  • This is a good tour. The tour guide Cisco was funny even without trying and was very knowledgeable and was full of good tour tips. Again, Senior ictizens should be warned of the amount of walking it will involve leading to Jackie Chan's casino, although seeing the gold bars on the floor made the longish walk worth it.

  • Good but very rushed and too many people. It was very rushed and the guide kept on pushing us ,he was very controlling. I can understand it as 43 people on board but we didn't have lunch to 3 pm and people were becoming dehydrated. Would probably do on my own at a more lesiure paced. It was a exhausting day

  • Cisco did an AMAZING job of leading our group! He had a wonderful sense of humor and energy that kept us going all day.

    I also appreciated how Cisco indirectly showed us the ways Macau has changed over the years -- FROM an historic spiritual perspective with only the facade of a cathedral remaining TO our current self-indulgent environment with evidence of the opulent casinos built in place of the cathedral. Interesting and sad at the same time.

  • GOOD

  • Interesting to see other areas of Asia as I was staying in Hong Kong but wanted to see other places and this tour gives you the opportunity to explore Macau. The boat ride jet foil is an hour long, don't forget to bring your passport. A lot of casinos there, they mimic Las Vegas as there is a MGM, Venetian, Sands, and Wynn. Heard they are going to build more. Our guide Cisco did an excellent job! He was both informative about Macau and kept us entertained funny guy! Visiting a temple, the ruins, and the town itself was great. You must buy a box of Portugese Egg Tart from the Ko Kei Bakery....absolutely mouth watering, better than the egg tarts you would get in a typical Chinese restaurant in the U.S. This is far way better for your palate. The only negative is that I think if it's going to be a large group, to maybe have 2 guides as we were a group of 40. I think it was a bit hard for Cisco to constantly do head counts more than once each time we separated then had to re-group in a certain amount of time. There was one fella that kept the group waiting more than once as he would lag back to the meeting area. That's a bit rude as our guide had told us repeatedly to be on time to the meeting place and he would violate it everytime! Expect to be back at your hotel late, got back to my hotel later than I thought, instead of 6:30pm it's an 11 hr. tour and I got picked up @ 7:30am, last one I got back close to 8pm so couldn't go to the restaurant I was planning on having dinner at. Otherwise, it was an enjoyable tour.

  • Excellent trip. Our guide Elisa was especially good, very enthusiastic and knowledgeable so special thanks to her for making it an enjoyable trip.

  • Mario was our tour guide. Had an excellent time learning about Macau on this trip. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who wants to spend a day in Macau

  • Had a wonderful time, guide speaks very good english, and explained everything very well. Wish it extended till early evening so we experience Macau at dark.
