After pickup in Kuala Lumpur, your day trip starts with the drive to Malacca City, where you first visit Stadthuys, a remnant of the city’s Dutch history built in 1650.

Next, visit the ruins of A Famosa, a Portuguese fortress and one of the oldest remains of European architecture in the region.

Then, head up to St. Paul’s Hill for a view of the city and to see St. Paul’s Church, which dates back to 1521, making it one of the oldest churches in Southeast Asia.

Take a break for lunch (own expense) before continuing your tour to Jonker Street, located in Chinatown and known for its abundant shopping opportunities.

Poor service!
Voyage516309
, Dec 2019
The tour operator was uncooperative when I had to update my tour return to direct it to the airport. The airport was closer than my final return destination.I traveled with other tour operators during my stay who were extremely cooperative with change in schedule. To add to it he asked me to pay an extra 25 USD(with no receipt provided) and not the local currency with change in route although it was saving the return trip an hour of driving. I would really like viator to review such uncooperative behavior.

Chauffeur is a misnomer - it;s a bumpy van if you have more than 2

Patrick was very nice, often forgot about the passengers and that the van was very bumpy and stop and go traffic made it worse. It was very hot and humid and the absolute slowest walk possible around the city. Patrick was very knowledgeable but didn't understand how uncomfortable we were. Spent the majority of the time in Melaka in the Hard Rock Cafe as that was the ONLY place that had air conditioning.

Malacca Historical Tour with Personal Chauffer/Guide
HugenpoetTraveler
, Sep 2019
I booked an all day tour through Viator with local company Tripmakers Online Enterprise. Nanthe was my Chauffeur/Guide. Nanthe accompanied me throughout the exploration of Malacca. He was knowledgeable about Malacca, its history and architecture. Nanthe was personable, engaged in intelligent conversation, kind and patient.. Nanthe was an excellent guide.I was introduced to Malacca in the best possible way with Nanthe as my guide. Aditionally, he introduce me to how rubber is harvested and to the importance of palm oil in the economy of Malaysia.

This tour actually was kind boring. Yes, it is full of cultural information, Ganesh was our driver, he was very friendly and knowledgeable about Malacca, but I expected more. The tour is about 3 hours and we spent 4hrs in the car :/ Also there were a lot of places that were a must to see but didn’t.

The malacca trip was a long one but enjoyed it with the help of Ganesh, our driver/tour guide. He knows the history of Malacca well and we learned a lot fom him. One more thing he drove us to Putrajaya on our way for some photo shoots even it is not included in our itinerary. It was a good thing coz my sis-in-law has been telling me to visit the place but we got no more time since it was our last day, so thru Ganesh -wish was granted.

Josta
, Jun 2017
Our day trip to Malaca could not have gone any smoother. The guide picked us up right on time in a brand new private car for just the three of us. Ganesh was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about Malaca and Malaysia overall. It was a pleasure listening to him and he did not mind answering all the questions we had. Malaca itself is a cute little town and I wish we had more time to explore. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely use the same agency again and try to get Ganesh as out guide.
