Ravi, our driver/guide arrived on time at our hotel and we immediately head towards Melaka. The trip was not boring because Ravi briefed us on what we will be doing, gave us a bit of history, made some jokes and chit chats and also gave us some time to rest. He is good in making sure that we are comfortable and that we enjoy our tour. The lunch served was good but it could have been better. Since we were really tired after the tour after, he gave us time to sleep and rest during the trip back. I highly recommend this tour.
