What You Can Expect

Private Day Trip to Malacca from Kuala Lumpur

Old buildings of Malacca

After pickup in Kuala Lumpur, your day trip starts with the approximate 2-hour drive to Malacca City, where you’ll first visit Stadthuys, a remnant of the city’s Dutch history built in 1650.

Next, 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. Browse antique shops and craft outlets for gifts and souvenirs, and perhaps try a dessert known as chendol, shaved ice with red beans, coconut milk, palm sugar and green jelly.  

Visit the ruins of A Famosa, a Portuguese fortress and one of the oldest remains of European architecture in the region. Make a stop at Cheng Hoon Teng, a Chinese temple that practices three doctrines: Buddhism, Confucianism and Taoism. Your day trip then ends with the drive back to Kuala Lumpur.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2017

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.

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.

Great day out! Ganesh was awesome and looked after us so well. He is very knowledgeable and told us so much about the area and history. Highly recommend this tour and company.


4 star rating: Recommended April 2017

We enjoyed this all day private tour to Malacca. Hotel pick-up was on time in a small sedan. Drive to Malacca took two hours, enjoyed seeing the countryside on the drive. Visited many historic sites, including old Portuguese settlement area, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, St Pauls Church, Kampung Kling Mosque and Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple. Lunch was on our own, we only wish we had more time to wander around Jonker Street and the Stadthuys area. Guide was informative and provided great commentary. Tour was taken April 3, 2017.


2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better April 2018

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.
