A trip well worth doing. The cruise lasted about an hour and a quarter and took you past all the night scene photographic opportunities you could wish for on both the Hong Kong and Kowloon sides of Victoria Harbour. The bar on the boat was free if that is of any interest. Once dropped off the trip continued to the Jumbo Restaurant by a short bus ride. The food was excellent and the company on our table was very good. If i could find fault with this trip it would be that the experience in the restaurant was a little rushed by our guide but it didn't spoil anything for us. Before being dropped off we were taken to a view point half way up Victoria Peak to view the city by night. Little disappointing that the 'view' point was partially masked by trees/bushes etc but there were still some decent photographic opportunities to be had. All in all, a trip well worth doingReviewed by: John U, December 2013
Our guide Timothy was really friendly and knowledgable. We sat with some nice people at dinner and enjoyed the night immensely. Food wasn't amazing but that's to be expected when catering for large numbers. Harbour cruise was great.Reviewed by: Diane C, January 2014
Grand tour of the harbour and good food at the Jumbo Restaurant.Reviewed by: Raymond de Swardt, January 2014
Not clear from the tour description that the sunset cruise is a standard trip up and down the Victoria harbour and the Jumbo trip is a bus trip from the Hong Kong Central pier - I had imagined us sailing round to Aberdeen. The Jumbo itself is just a couple of minutes ferry through a standard yacht marina - there is no real sensation of "floating" and the old image of a sampan filled exotic harbour no longer exists. The restaurant itself is spectacularly kitsch and worth seeing and the food was good for such a touristy place. Worth doing but probably better value done privately.Reviewed by: Bruce W, United Kingdom, February 2014
This was about the biggest rip off I've ever experienced in my 30+ years of traveling abroad. The description absolutely misrepresents what is delivered, starting with the photo to the left. The "cruise" was a standard junket boat, the "open bar" consisted of as much cheap beer you could drink in one hour plus a bag of barequed chips. The Jumbo Floating has seen better days-it is in desperate need of renovation, and a new chef. I am a huge fan of asian food, and this was inedible. The only saving grace is that we were paired with a fun couple from London, and we had a lot of laughs and a good cocktail after we escaped our disastrous "tour". Take it from me, do not, do not sign up for this "sunset cruise"Reviewed by: Katherine L, January 2014
