The trip could start at a different time as Macau is a place to visit in the evening. So Instead of starting early in the morning, if it is started in the afternoon around 12pm everyone can enjoy the evening life (cafes, restaurants and bars) there. The ferries from Macau to Hong Kong are available 24/7 so that wont be a problem too..
Great guide. Fun, informative and best of all Portugese! Mario was excellent.
