Private Tour: UNESCO Archaeological Heritage Of The Lenggong Valley from Ipoh

Private Tour: UNESCO Archaeological Heritage Of The Lenggong Valley from Ipoh

By Ipoh Secrets
Lenggong Valley is considered as one of Malaysia’s most valuable archaeological site. In fact, the oldest known human activity can be traced back to this site. Some archaeological experts have dubbed Lenggong Valley as an open-air museum – there is evidence of cave drawings, skeletons and precious finds (weapons, stone tools, pottery, etc) within the area. Situated in the lush Lenggong Valley, the property includes four archaeological sites in two clusters which span close to 2 million years, one of the longest records of early man in a single locality, and the oldest outside the African continent. It features open-air and cave sites with Palaeolithic tool workshops, evidence of early technology. The number of sites found in the relatively contained area suggests the presence of a fairly large, semi-sedentary population with cultural remains from the Palaeolithic, Neolithic and Metal ages. Lenggong Valley was added to UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites on 30th June 2012.

    A Day in Ipoh with John from Ipoh Secrets
    A friend and I have just spent 4 days in Ipoh, one day was with John an a tour of Ipoh and its surrounds. We had come up to Ipoh by bus from Singapore the day before (10 hours!) so were quite tired the next day, However John tailored the tour to suits our needs beginning with a later breakfast than planned at a very good local restaurant. He is a fund of information about Ipoh which is close to his heart! As well he assisted me with the bookings for our hotel and bus which was very helpful so far away in NZ. Ipoh Secrets is obviously well known in Ipoh and has a very good reputation; the mere mention of Ipoh Secrets opened doors! Arlene House is worth a visit for the beautifully restored rooms and their content as was the shopping Made in Ipoh. Papan's forgotten shophouses were interesting, a ghost town now. There is so much to discover in Ipoh....there is so much more than we expected. Do contact Ipoh Secrets for a personlised tour with John! Kind regards Lyn

    Fun Secrets Day!
    Informative tour and very enjoyable. We love the tin mining history John shared with us, including how the old opera house and nearby ‘entertainment’ outlets in the old town were patronized by the coolies. Instead of Kellie Castle, we explored the cave at Gua Tempurung and John was our expert tour guide, pointing out the various highlights, and recommending the appropriate tour for us. He even took us to the last remaining bakery that bakes charcoal fire Heong Beh (unfortunately, you need to Pre order before they bake these special biscuits), as well as another bakery where we purchased yummy kaya puffs, salted egg buns and specialty moon cakes. He also gave us recommendations of food courts for our dinner that day. I think we achieved a lot in our 1-day tour. Just tell John what you want to see and do, and he would try to manage the itinerary. Highly recommended!

    Fantastic experience
    Ipoh Secrets are fantastic! We were visiting from Australia and they helped us out with last minute bookings twice. We had a terrific experience both times. Easy, fast and helpful booking. Ipoh Secrets, thank you for helping us have a wonderful holiday.

    Great tour to see everything in a short span of time
    The tour was very informative and we are grateful to our guide John, who had to rearrange the trip at short notice. We were scheduled for the archeological tour but the weather did not permit it John was very well informed and explained everything in detail

    Ipoh heritage tour, good but different from expected
    Our guide, John CJ Lee, was very flexible during the tour, improvising some unexpected stops like a soya source facility we had never seen before. He also was very explicative during the visit to the Gua Tempurung Cave in Gopeng and the temples visited. And he took us to a very authentic local breakfast and a convenient local place for lunch. Our only concern is that the tour was quite different of the described tour in their web page. So we expected to visit the Perak Tong temple or the Kellie Castle that were theoretically included, but we did not. The city tour was also shorter than expected but we did it at the end of the tour and we were already tired of a log day touring. In summary, good job of John but the company should be more clear about what is included in the tour. Anyway we

    Highly recommend the Full Heritage Day Tour . Our guide John brought us to local eateries and imparted a lot of interesting and fun facts on Ipoh’s history and culture . Covered all the main sights I’ve been wanting to see .Bonus was the biscuit outlet and pomelo shopping

    Very good tour
    We booked a full-day private tour and John was our guide. We appreciate how he customized the tour for us (there were several tourist attractions we did not wish to visit) and enlivened the tour with his in-depth knowledge of Ipoh's history and how it impacted the city and surrounding region. It was a really interesting day. Thanks! :)

    Ipoh pte tour
    It was a last minute decision to take up this pte heritage tour, and we were glad we did. Our guide was Simon. He was pleasant, polite, patient and was flexible enough to adcede to the change in itinerary. Due to expected thunderstorm in the afternoon, we requested to do swap the morning old town tour with the afternoon caves tour. The tour went smoothly. The caves were beautiful, esp like the Kek Lok Tong cave. Due to Qingming Jie, we went to Perak cave instead. Lunch was at a buzzy unpretentious coffee shop for an absolutely delicious Yong Tau Foo lunch. We decided take a cursory look at Kellie Castle from outside, and then proceeded to Pomelo plantation, an extra "complimentary" stop! Afternoon was a quick run in the rain through the old town. Highly rec this tour to provide a quick overview of Ipoh's key attractions!

    Excellent service from John
    Booked a full day heritage tour from Ipoh Secret on 15 Mar 23. We had John as our guide for the day. Overall experience was very good. John was very knowledgeable in explaining the history during the guided tour. (The kids really learnt a lot) We went to places such as Kellie Castle, Ho Yat Ho Museum, and Concubine Lane. John was also helpful in sourcing the perfect place for our meals. Love the Yong Tau Foo. John went an extra mile in helping us sourced for a less crowded breakfast place for the next day, which we really appreciated. Please keep up the good work buddy!

    Awesome 1-day Private Tour
    We had a great time in the 1-day private tour led by John, our tour guide, visiting Ipoh old town, beautiful limestone caves, and the ionic Kellie's Castle. John was friendly and helpful throughout, sharing his knowledge on the history and culture of the various attractions and helping us take many photos throughout the day. Overall, it was an awesome experience and we highly recommend John as your tour guide for your next trip to Ipoh!

    Awesome experience
    We booked a last minute four days tour package with Ipoh Secrets because we were travelling with young children that required customised itinerary. This turned out to be the best decision for our family trip! John, our assigned tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable, thoughtful and accommodating. Words cannot express our appreciation and satisfaction and I would highly recommend John and Ipoh Secrets to anyone who’s keen to explore Ipoh and Perak area.

    Private Tour Cameron Highlands Day Trip
    Ipoh Secrets were fantastic on our recent visit to Ipoh when we decided to book a last minute trip to the Cameron Highlands. We were told that due to our last minute booking we would just have a driver and not a guide, but it ended up that John, our driver, was a fantastic tour guide! He was really professional and knowledgeable, we really enjoyed his insights as an Ipoh local and he was also easy to get along with. He knew all the best photo spots and even gave us a list of coffee places to try! It was also very reasonable price-wise and flexible with what we wanted to do. We would definitely use Ipoh Secrets again!

9 March 2023 6.20am in the morning, John picked us at Kinta Riverside Hotel. We bit the morning traffic and arrived Lenggong Valley at around 7.30am for a coffee shop breakfast. We were then proceed to our UNESCO Archaeological Heritage tour.

The heritage tour guide could not speak much other languages except Malay. John assisted in translation and provided additional insight and helped our senior folks to complete the adventure. We were told tha our 73 year old participant was the oldest that the tour had ever received!

John took us to Kuala Kangsar for lunch and visited the royal town of Perak before heading back to hotel.

We thanked John for his friendliness, patience and professionalism.

We're glad you enjoy the tour and are lucky that the soil is a lot drier compared to a few days before where the group had some lich bites. You all came out unbitten! :)
