I had limited time to see as much as possible while in Macau. I decided to do the private tour instead of group tour, because in reading the reviews, it appeared that the group tours have many delays and take too long. They could do them in a fraction of the time.
I was also by myself so I wanted to have the privacy and customization of the sites.....we visited so many in a perfect door-to-door 4 hour tour: Ruins of St. Paul, Guia Lighthouse, A-Ma Temple, The Panda Pavilion, Senado square, and....it goes on!
My tour guide, Manuel was welcoming, efficient, spoke perfect English, and was so knowledgeable about his homeland. He took me to all the sites on my list and I never felt rushed. It was the perfect amount of time at each spot.
On this tour, not only did I get to hand pick my itinerary, but we went to off-the-beaten-path places that a large bus could never get to.
I was in a comfortable, AC’d limo van, with a separate driver, so that Manuel sat in the back, next to me, telling me all about the history as we went along.
Added bonus: He is also a great photographer and was accommodating with helping document my visit with fabulous photos to share!
I cannot recommend this tour enough!!! It is an absolute MUST!!!!
