From the time we were picked up from our Hong Kong hotel to the time we were dropped off, this tour was extremely well organised. Mario, our Portuguese guide in Macao, was entertaining and kept us well informed about everything we saw. His knowledge of the history of colonization leading to the take-over by the Chinese government was most informative. All round, a great excursion well worth doing. The only negative, if you could call it a negative, was that we were in a hotel on Hong Kong island, but the tour we were on left from Kowloon ferry terminal. So, after a long day out, we had to make the trip back to our hotel through peak hour traffic. As far as I am aware, there are Macao ferries that leave from Hong Kong island, so when booking this tour see if you can get one that originates from the island if you are staying on the island.”

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.”

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!”

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.”

Great knowledgeable guide who managed the group well.
Portuguese egg tarts were not as good as the Hong Kong egg tarts IMHO.”

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”

We booked the trip for the 7th March 2018. Pick up and drop off from hotel was well organised and we received an e-mail the day before with a more accurate pick up time which was useful.
The tour is very good and informative. It is not a shopping or gambling trip but if you want to go off and do your own thing you are given information on where to meet the group later or how to get to the ferry terminal. We went with the tour which covers more of the history of Macau.
Our guide was Sisko and his knowledge was excellent as was his English. He was more than happy to answer any questions and gave a fascination local insight.
Lunch was a buffet in a local hotel which was good with plenty of choice.
There is a lot covered in the tour and the day does fly by.
If you only have one day to visit Macau and want to learn something about the place and its history I highly recommend this tour.”

We went on this tour during the Chinese New Year holiday and got Cisco as our guide. It was really nice not to plan our own visits and sightseeing in the city and Cisco was very energetic and fun to listen too. The tour was a little fast-paced but we did get to see a lot of different sights all within a 10 hour period. We even got to special order some Portuguese egg tarts which were amazing! Please keep in mind that this is not a shopping or a gambling tour, so although we did get to do a little bit of both, it was not long maybe 20-30 minutes. At the end of the tour we were told that some people had requested to stay later and have their return ticket at a later time so they could stay longer. I would recommend doing this if you want to stay and gamble/shop. Overall it was a great trip!”

The day tour was lovely and amazing! Led by our witty tour coordinator named Mario, it was very fascinating to explore Macau and unravel untold stories of the history in every corner of the cobbled streets.
I hope we can still contact Mario our proactive tour guide for another round of Macau tour!”

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.”
