You’ll arrive in time for lunch followed by a historical walking tour of Malacca City, whose city center is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Great introduction to Malaysia. Just enough touring and just enough time on our own to explore. Batu Caves was the highlight for me, yet the museum was also very informative. Nice guide (Abdul) and responsible driver (Murugan). We were fortunate to have great fellow travelers as our group, so that also helped make this a fun tour.
This was my first trip traveling alone. It was a great experience! The guide, Abdul, was excellent. The hotels were clean and centrally located. My group was friendly and inclusive. I would highly recommend this trip. Well organized and thoughfully planned.
