Loved the day out. Great guide and very well looked after.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2018

A day well spent! Comfortable trip with our knowledgable and chatty guide David. He explained the history of Malacca in detail and answered all our questions. Jonker street is beautiful, with so many treasures condensed in a such a small place. We loved the food, the intricate mixture of dutch and oriental heritage. I highly recommend a private tour as this is a long trip and you dont want to spend the most of it picking up and dropping off your fellow passengers.

Perfectly scheduled open air tour, worth every cent. Our talkative guide Henry was a real plus! He drove us to Malacca and showed us all the historical sites. It took about two hours to get there, then two hours back. Visit was about four hours, including a delicious lunch in a Nonya restaurant typical Peranakan cousine in the heart of the city, a visit to a couple of churches, a square, ruins from portuguese, dutch and british domination and an Amazing walk through the town, visiting a Mosque Taoist, Buddhist and Hindu temples, all in the same street! Very recommende!

Our guide Dennis was very knowledgeable and helpful. He provided good stories and history about Malacca while at the time left us alone if we wanted to do something on our own. The tour was great.

Pickup was prompt with a very informative and friendly guide who was a font of information, with several stops on the way explaining about the conditions that villages lived under. He was also an excellent guide around malacca with a vast amount of information about the history of the area.
