I honestly don't think that you really need a travel agent or to go on a tour to Macau. It is a small enough city that you can see a lot of it on your own with a good tourist map or a guidebook. The ferry service from HK to Macau is frequent and relatively cheap (less than $40USD for a round trip ticket). Once you are at the ferry terminal at Macau, you can take one of the many free shuttle buses to all the various casinos, which in themselves, are gaudy sights to behold. Many of them offer free spectacular shows throughout the day. When in Macau, go to San Malo which is where a lot of the old Portugese architecture is. This is a great site for giving you some info on Macau and some recommended walking tours you can do on your own: http://www.willgoto.com/313/1/categories.aspx

Agreed. Macau is tiny and very easy to self navigate. I recommend searching the TA Macau reviews and forum posts to get a list of things you want to see in Macau and just visit independently.

Most important and significant sights are in the Senado Square area to St. Paul's Ruins on Macau Island. You can also visit the interesting Taipa Village on Tiapa Island. This is nearby to Cotai Strip where some of the new huge casino/hotels are located and being built, including the Venetian, Galaxy, City of Dreams, etc. This is also where some interesting shows can be watched. Further along in Coloane, you can visit the new Panda Pavilion (just MOP10) if you are not able to to Ocean Park in HK to see the pandas.

Try the Macau forum, lots of good advise and some great Destination Experts there with lots of information for you.

Do hop across to the Macau Region forum here on TA - you will find sample DIY itineraries for people of different ages and interests, and also a much wider variety of info.

Macau's official tourism website - www.macautourism.gov.mo - is very thorough, too.
