We enjoyed the short tour to Johore Bahru but
not enough time to soak up the scenery. Perhaps the tour should be longer as we spent too much time crossing the border.
Although the border formalities are time consuming, the visit to Johore Bahru was most interesting. I had a great and knowledgeable tour guide with a lot of great information to share, and a lot of pride in her country. It was a pleasure.

My 2 kids, my brother and I enjoyed our trip to Johore Bahru, Malaysia. It was very interesting, although we just stayed there for a short period of time. It was worth it.
We very much enjoyed the cross-border trip to Johore Bahru. Each of the three tour stops was interesting and well chosen. I was, however, astounded at the complexity of the border crossing process - but that is not the tour operator's fault.
Johore Bahru is a beautiful town! It was a very educational and informative trip!!!
This was an interesting tour. Malaysia is so different to Singapore! I loved the craftsmanship of the Batik - the designs and fabrics were beautiful. The Mosque was very interesting and I was pleased to get the background information from the Guide on this, as it was a new thing for me. The view of the Straits from the Mosque is marvellous and the gardens there are lovely. The city of Johore Baru is very interesting and the Guide was so knowledgable - including all the medicinal uses of the plants we saw. One thing to note, the immigration/departure process between Singapore and Malaysia may take up some time and there is no control over this, so you should expect potential adjustment to your itinerary if the process takes longer than usual. Overall, a good tour.
There is not much to see in Johore Bahru; the guide, a Malaysian, was average. We enjoyed the tour as a contrast to Singapore.
