It was a wonderful short introductory trip to Malaysia. Our tour guide was very informative and we learned a lot in a short period of time. A half day trip was all we had time for, so this was perfect for us!

The trip to Malaysia was great. It was time consuming getting through the checkpoints at the borders but that has to be done. The guide we had was very knowledgeable and although it was not a long tour we managed to see a little of the sights of Johore Bahru. Would recommend this tour to get a feel for Malaysia.
