          We were thrilled with Jacop; his level of knowledge, English skills, and welcoming nature made this trip most worthwhile
          This was the perfect tour for our first day building knowledge about this country and its treasures. Jacop was amazing!! He was clear in his explanations and thorough with his details. His English skills were excellent. I would highly recommend asking for Jacop, he went out if his way to make this memorable.

          Vera brought us around the city and Batu caves, explaining with passion and professionality the history of various landmarks around the city. Additionally, he was a very kind person. I would personally recommend the tour with Vera.

          Excellent tour with Nantha. The temples and mosque are as great as were all the side shops at markets. He provided great commentary all day regarding the history and culture of Malaysia, KM and all of the places we visited. Very nice vehicle as well.

          Great impressions with great guide/driver
          I was on my own instead of a group tour. Anyhow, it was a great tour, all sights were interesting and nice. Driver Janar was also a perfect guide, very nice and friendly, and explained a lot about Malaysia and Kuala Lumpur, also had a very good and clean car. You get enough time to discover all sights. I can recommend it 100%! Janar gets 5 / 5 stars! Thanks for the nice experience:).

          Perfect overview of Kuala Lumpur
          A great and reasonable way to see a lot of sites around KL in 4 hours! It is a private tour, so you can go at your own pace. The driver was very nice and knowledgeable with excellent English. He suggested we leave a little early to avoid traffic, 8:30 instead of 9 and he was right. When we arrived at the Batu Caves it wasn’t crowded so it was easy to climb up and explore. When we were walking down it was already a mob scene. Many other sites included: Chinese temple, mosque, central market and China town. Covered the basics. Highly recommended

          Not a minute wasted.
          Karthik is a very nice driver and guide, comfortable ride. As expected we visit cultural and local places from a local perspective, yes you want to go to cultural places and he will take provide a local experience, yet, the most value is added with the knowledge and insight that he will provide, very pleasant experience since he doesn't take you by the hand, actually he will take you to the place and allow you to manage your time at each location. Will do it again for sure.

          Segar was a fantastic guide who explained all the cultures of Kuala Lumpur. His tour of Batu Caves was amazing. He was on time, kept us informed throughout and very courteous to his guests. Would highly recommend Segar to be your guide.

        The hotel pick up was on time and the vehicle very nice and comfortable. The drive to Malacca was fast, sometimes a bit too fast on the freeway at 150km/h with frequent tailgating that at times felt unsafe. First stop was the Melaka Straits mosque but we were not informed about the dress code for entry (no shorts for men). Then we were dropped in main town and handed over to a Trishaw ride for 30 mins. This was included in the tour price so do not pay the Trishaw guy extra. Our “guide” then grabbed tickets for river cruise but gave us wrong information regarding departure schedule (every half hour) so we had to wait 25 mins. The duration of cruise is 30mins and is quite relaxing but not that much to see during the day, maybe at night it fires up along the river. Then we went through the museum at Stadthuys (worth it) and a walk down Jonker Street. Lunch at Jonker88 was great, despite the queue for 20 mins. Laksa was delicious.
        Back to the car for a 2 hour drive home.
        Malacca trip is well worth it to understand the history but don’t expect anything more than your own self guided tour with a driver out of this “tour”. So do your history research before you go and spend plenty of time in the museum.

        I took a solo trip Ayyanar as a guide, and a second guide who was in training. Was well taken care of. We did the river cruise (highly recommended), I took a brief trishaw ride with a local guy who told me some more history of the city, did a walking tour of the couple blocks that make up the core of the historic area, and we at at a local restaurant (only tourist in the place) for the famous local dish: chicken with rice balls. The only caution to be aware of: it is a 1 hour, 45 minute trip each way to Malacca from KL, so although the tour is set at 8 hours you really only have about 4 hours in Malacca itself. I thought this was plenty of time anyway.

        The tour was good and our guide Kumuthan was excellent. We saw all the things in Melaka that we wanted to see and Kumuthan was attentive to our needs and was very knowledgeable about the history of the city. We saw the A Famosa Fort (.the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia), the 16th-century St. Paul's Church, Christ Church, and Stadthuys in Red Square. We went for lunch at the famous Jonker Street, rode on a Rickshaw and saw a replica of the sunken Portuguese ship Flor De La Mar.
        I would highly recommend this trip.

        We did a speedy day trip to Malacca, visiting briefly the important highlights. This trip is really for whoever who doesn’t want to spend a discovery day, it’s more the been there done that kind of tour. Should u want to take your time and explore culture and food rather than rushing pictures into your album, than this is not the tour for you. However the guide is extremely friendly and informative. A guide that you can trust on. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

        We had a great guide (Louis) who was very knowledgeable on Malaysia history and politics which was our areas of interest.
        He was brought up on a rubber plantation and even pulled over on the expressway to pick a few leaves from a rubber tree to show us how it is harvested, and great stories relating to living on the plantations.
        The history and even the modern history of Malacca is fascinating.

        Thank you Louis for a great day.

        This was such a great way to see Malacca in a single day. Our guide, Jay, was fantastic. He was very organised and really friendly. We were picked up from our hotel in a comfortable air conditioned car. Once we arrived in Malacca Jay explained to us the rickshaw ride we were going to take and where to meet him afterwards. He happily took photos for us and was very informative about the area. After the ride, Jay then took us to see the different temples nearby, and then we explored Jonker St. We felt like we could go at our own pace and really soak up the local atmosphere. We had a delicious lunch and picked up some sweets before making our way back to KL. We really enjoyed the day!
