Return Catamaran ride to Macau
The tour (Sep 13th, 2010) was very interesting and every participants looked happy and satisfied. The tour guide (Cisco) is very knowledgeable, organized, funny and really talented. We hope he will always be there for our next trip and or for our friends and relatives to whom we are recommending this one day Macau tour on their Hongkong trip.
Also, my dealings with customer service for booking the tour was excellent---with kudos to Polly & Joe---who were able to remove any doubts about the legitimacy of City Discovery.

The guide is very nice and experienced, but next time must remembering goods on the bus when leaving. I forgot and left my goods b...ought in Macau on the bus when leaving to enter ferry terminal. Yes, off course, it was purely my carelessness.. more
We were told that Macau has not seen such good weather in months and so we were glad to have picked a perfect day for the Day Trip.... I was most grateful that there were no surprises and that the pick up arrived at our hotel promptly at 8am. Ferry tickets were purchased for us so all we had to do was be there. The ferry ride was calm and uneventful though I would advise those who have sea sickness to prepare for it. We met with Cisco our guide who was pleasant, friendly and spoke very clearly. His organizing skills were great, and we arrived punctually at every point. The tour took us to 5 spots and lunch was arranged after the 3rd spot which I felt was abit late. We were however taken to Kou Kei Bakery for some egg tarts and biscuit tasting so that helped stave off the hunger. Nonetheless, it would have been great if we were given lunch at noon rather than at 2pm. For those travelling with kids, bring some snacks in your bag. more
