Worth going even if it's a little hassle having to go thru immigration and customs four times. Working farm and batik is wonderful. Seeing people doing things the old way and getting great batik.
It was a good trip but it could have been a little bit longer so that I could appreciate the City more.
This is a short tour but that is what it is designed for. A few quick places and a chance to get to a new country. I think I would like a full day tour since you do spend a fair amount of time getting through the border. The driver was very careful. The guide very informative and his English was very good. If you want a quick and fast tour this is good for you. If you can spend more time see about a full day tour. In general we really had a good time. It was also nice to be able to discus briefly the some of the cultural and religious aspects of Malaysia and how they differ from our own.
i love the trip, start from booking the tour to pick-up and drop off to your hotel . no hassle, everything is organize. all the staff is friendly and fluent in english.
Short visit to Malaysia and what a comparison to the clean well laid out Singapore city. Too rushed to see much but a very knowledge Guide and the visit to the outside of the Mosque with the view back to Singapore Island worth the trip.
The tour guide was really knowledgeable. I like the idea that you make us taste the culture of Malaysia. Hope you can include Legoland next time since it is located in Johore Bahru.
The tour was very educational. We have a very capable tour guide and tour captain. I just wish we saw more of JB. Given the time constraint, it is really understandable.
A simple, short, no fuss tour with professional tour guides. great value for money
Great experience - time included clearing customs etc - but this is expected.
Very nice experience! Nice experience countryside and handmades from Malaysia. Also very informative tour guide.
Enjoyed the half day tour to JB, the Colonial mosque was interesting.
very informative, the wax art was pretty cool, the vegetable garden was colourful and the malaysian dance was different
Enjoyable excursion with friendly and knowledgeable guide. Bit of a hassle to and fro with border/customs both ways but quite efficient.
This is a quick tour and quite some time is taken getting over the border into Malaysia. However it is very worth while doing to give you a brief look into Malaysia and also the process getting over there on the causeway. You also get a few more stamps in your passport if you are into collecting passport stamps :-)
Great tour guide, excellent bus transport, highly recommend...
it was very informational. Although to much time in immigration but the whole trip was quite an experience.
A very enjoyable half day trip to get an insight into another part of Malaysia. Our tour guide and coach driver were thoughtful and knowledgeable and spoke very good english.
The trip was good value for money and is recommended.

A good trip. In a half day, there`s a large portion of time spent with immigration authorities, but we got a taste of Malaysia.
This trip gives a quick view of Malasia. Nothing exceptional, but suitable if you have little time to spare. What is annoying is that we had to call to verify whether this tour was going or not; better customer service would have been for the tour operator to call us / send an e-mail to confirm.
Overall, it was an informative trip. There is only one thing I disliked, the driver who picked us up had a very short temper and he was mumbling when we were late 10min in coming down from the hotel room. I hope these drivers should understand that we are traveling with kids that it is difficult to handle them and extend their patience to us.
I thought this was a great tour, despite the hassle of entering another country and all that it entails, customs, immigration etc. The guide was excellent, very informative and had a good sense of humour. It was stark contrast to Singapopre which made the whole experience that more enjoyable, highly recommend this trip.
