What a wonderful day. Both driver and guide went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed ourselves. Their knowledge was excellent and accommodated the majority of our requests. The lunch was also excellent.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2010

The day trip to Malacca was fabulous. The driver and guide were good, and the guide had a lot of knowledge about Malaysia in general. Lunch was excellent, and the old City of Melaka has incredible architecture, an old mosque, an Indian temple and a Chinese temple. The historic shops are very beautiful and incredibly diverse in style. The ethnic roots of the old city are as intertwined as a banyan tree - well worth visiting.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2010

Given the amount of time on the road, there was understandably reduced time for sightseeing. A local guide in Malacca other than the driver who was excellent but had a very long day would have helped to make more use of this time. Lunch would have been more appreciated at a more authentically 'local' restaurant rather than at a big hotel lacking in atmosphere. Given the cost of a private tour, a group option would probably be better value for Viator to promote. I didn't know such a thing was possible, but in Singapore I found that it would have been.

1 star rating: I do not recommend this November 2013

The driver talked on the phone most of the way back and the "guide" slept in the front seat on both directions. The food at lunch was great, but the time in the city was so limited that we only marched through for just over 90 minutes.
