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

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.

This was a fantastic tour. Our private tour guide David was great. Can't really complain about anything. Really enjoyed the day. Melaka is fun and interesting place to visit. And once again David our tour guide was very accommodating, friendly and great !

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.

The issue was not as expected it was reach Malaka see the site and that need more time the musum was paid from our side and we did not see all
Over all it was good to see but as was needed

This was a full day of history and walking around a beautiful old town. We enjoyed seeing all of the buildings learning about the deep history of Malacca and Malaysia. The only thing holding it back from 5 stars was our guide. We felt rushed the full day and didn't get to give feedback on staying a few extra minutes here or there to enjoy the sights. Would recommend the tour, just need to be firm with the guide to make the most of your day.

I really appreciate his way of conversation and he gave my family excellent Protocol -- beyond expectation he was good and place of Malacca is also excellent

This very expensive tour to Melaka had NO AIRCON in the minivan thru out the journey! Ridiculous!
We are still waiting for the agent to revert to us.
