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 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.

We were happy with the drive back and forth from KUL to Malacca as the roads where in very good condition. The Chauffeur entertained us with lots of information about Malaysia and the political situation there. When we reached Malacca it was bit disappointing as there isn't much to explore. It was just another day spend outside Kaula lumpur.

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.

It's always a pleasure to visit Malacca, it's unique cultural heritage, its authentic variety of Peranakaan food, the hustle and bustle of street attractions and night market fills the day with so much appreciation of heritage, shopping, enjoyment

The tour is good. We left KL at 9am and returned just after 4pm.We saw all the things in Malacca that we wanted to see - historic Dutch buildings such as St. Paul's, Jonker Street where there was lots of little shops. Their history is very different to what you'll see in KL. In Harmony Street there are 3 worshipping places - Chinese, Islamic and Hindu. You can see the diversity of the city from this. We went in a rickshaw up to the highest point for a view of the city. We also saw the mosque which is on the saw but above the ocean. This is gorgeous and worth seeing. Its a rush as its about a 2 hour drive to/from KL but being there and walking around is worth it. I'd like to stay in Malacca next time for a couple of days to explore further.
