Our bus driver was fantastic, but unfortunately the tour guide was very late to meet the bus once we crossed the border.
If you would like a very quick look at Malaysia this is good value for money. Most of the time is spent travelling to, from and passing in and out of immigration and customs, twice, on both sides of the Singapore Malaysian border. Places visited are poor quality.
There is not much to see in Johore Bahru; the guide, a Malaysian, was average. We enjoyed the tour as a contrast to Singapore.
Felt rushed, not much to see. I was hoping for a demonstration of batik - maybe 30 seconds. Disappointed couldn't go into the mosque.
Not too good.Stood in a queue at immigration for
one and a quarter hours. This trip not
Half day is not sufficient it should be a full day.
A lot of time is waisted going through customs.
Bit disappointed in this tour, would have liked to have seen more of every day Malasia and the city centre itself. More so than Mosque and cemetery
Bus was most comfortable best I have been on for comfort etc

The trip entailed two stops at sovenier shops and a stop at the mosque. The time interval at the first two stops was not at all controlled. It seemed that the guide was more focused on encouraging visitors to buy merchandize than giving a tour.
Long tour to see few things. Most of the tour is in the bus and at the customs. However, the Mosque we saw was really beautiful.
Short trip for four customs immigration changeovers. Took considerable time to make the four stops, not just two as we expected even though the lines were very short. Didn't realize either all of the shopping stops on this trip. Viator's description should make that clearer. There was one stop of quality in the 1/2 day trip. Audio equipment on this bus didn't work either. Vendor needs to get better equipment since hearing the guide is important on a tour!
We enjoyed the trip. It was very well conducted by the host. It could be improved by a visit to the grounds of the sultan's residence if this is possible.
This was more of a cultural tour, not exactly sightseeing. But enjoyable.
The tour guide was really good and informative, but I actually expected more. We didn't really see a lot of Malaysia as I wanted. We only had three stops. First was at an art shop where they show you how they dye the clothes; then we went to a random house, not sure why, to see how people lived back in the day; and the only highlight was when we went to see the famous mosque, which was absolutely beautiful, but we didn't get to go inside as it's closed off to tourists.
