A great tour with a knowledgeable guide. Should have been a group but we were the only people, so it was a private tour really! The driver pointed out all sorts of interesting things on the journey and then knew his stuff about Malacca. He was not overbearing and left us to lunch alone, which was good. Lunch was a bit of a disappointment as we had no choice, three barely warm dishes (fish, chicken and vegetables) and rice were delivered. Not much flavour and I'm allergic to fish! Restaurant was in a traditional house, so the surroundings were great.Our guide took us to a couple of shops (traditional Nonya shoes, Chinese bound-foot shoes and traditional dress. However there was no pressure to buy which was appreciated. All in all very good and an amazing place to see.
Seri was our Guide. The whole tour was fantastic, we really enjoyed ourselves being submerged in Malaysian culture.
This Temple was fantastic to view in reality
The driver was superb - I cannot say enough about his knowledge and how he treated us! Unfortunately myself and my husband were ill and pushed the tour back a day - they were very accommodating. Unfortunately on the day we got to Malecca we were still unwell. We stayed for about an hour but had to return to our hotel. Our driver was so worried about us and wanted us to have lunch - we decided to forgo lunch and return to our hotel as we were so unwell. I was so disappointed as the driver was so knowledgable and interesting and we would have loved to have stayed! Thanks Viator for great staff.
Our trip to Malaka was excellent.like a private tour.- most enjoyable day......our guide lau (spelling may not be correct) was very knowledgable and his historical facts most interesting. The lunch was lovely. And plentiful..excellent value with lunch included in the cost...thank you..
Bus driver was exceptional. Couldn't do enough for my elderly mother, who unfortunately had to travel alone that day. Driver looked after her extremely well. Melacca was very nice, and the travel to and from was lovely looking at the scenery. It was a very interesting day.
a very informative and full tour with a great driver/ guide and i would thoroughly recommend it
Really enjoyed this tour. Our guide was very nice and very knowledgeable on the history of Malaysia and Melaka and we learnt a lot on the way to Melaka. The town itself was very nice and it was nice to see something very different from Kuala Lumpur. The lunch included was quite nice too. There is quite a bit of driving involved in order to reach the town so I would not recommend doing it with small children. But as our guide was very interesting we did not have time to get bored on the way. I would definitely recommend a Melaka tour if you are interested in history and if you want a change from KL.

This was a great trip and so worth doing. Malacca was awesome. We do however recommend that rather than just 1 day, you stay overnight in this neat historical town in order to be able to fit everything in that there is to see. There is just too much to see in 1 day, which made it rushed. Great food and guide, a day well spent.
The guide, the lunch, the choise of spot in the limited time, everything was so great.
Very good tour - we were lucky enough to be the only two on this tour so had a personalized tour with a dedicated guide. he was awesome. His knowledge of Malacca and Malaysian culture in general was excellent. Totally great experience and highly recommended for anyone interested in the cultural and historical inside story of Malacca

There were no other participants, so it was actually a private tour. The guide was very good, and we enjoyed sightseeing with pretty much satisfaction.

An awesome day tour of Malacca, had great fun. Lo, the tourist guide was very helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitley recommend this for anyone with a free day to spend in Malaysia.
Fantastic Guide (Chen Ai) who went out of his way to show us around and was very informative of the areas we visited and even plants and trees. Lunch was great too. Would not hesitate to book him again on our return to Malaysia. 2 Australians - March 2012
All what you need to know about Melaka in one full day tour!
Our local guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Small group size. Learned a lot about the history of Malacca and the culture.
The tour consisted of myself and one couple plus the driver/guide of course. We learned so much from a historical perspective of Malacca's past and saw it through the architecture, food and people there. Chinatown was a main feature and walking through a traditional Malay house built on posts/stilts was a real treat. The weather was perfect for this tour and everyone had a great time.
We ended up having a private tour since we were the only tourists travelling that day. The guide/driver went out of his way to provide an exceptional experience. He even stopped at a durian stand so that we could sample the fruit. We had a wonderful day!
excellent day out. the guide was great and very helpful, would highly recommend this tour.
Fantastic day with the fantastic guide named Roger. He had a great personality and was very knowledgeable as he had been in the business for 29yrs. A great trip which was never rushed and showed us a great deal of Malacca. Lunch was wonderful and we could not eat it all due to the too generous portions. I would recommend this tour whole heartedly. It is hot and humid in Malacca so don't forget your hat and sunscreen. Or you can be like me and buy a floppy brimmed hat for 10 ringgit ($3 AUD) on the 2nd stop. Floppy hats are the new fashon trend and back in fashion. Yeah!
Lovely day out with a very friendly and knowledgeable guide. Good value for money, and thoroughly recommended.
Thanks for a fantastic day, the guide was great and very informative. We had the best time and a great lunch.
This was a great tour about the history of Malacca. Our lunch was nice and our walking around the village was also was great. A very long day!
