The tour was really interesting and we learned a lot of Ipoh history. We visited many historical buildings, caves and visited a fruit farm.

Our tour guide John was kind and he knew all kinds of stuff about Ipoh.

I looked around for a day Ipoh tour and didn't find a comprehensive one and do opted for the private full day tour, even though it was expensive for a single person. y tour guide was John. He was so knowledgeable! He was a walking talking encyclopedia! He also customised the tour in that I opted to see the Mosque along the way and he stopped for awhile. Overall, I am super happy with the tour. Jut wish it had been a little lighter on the pocket.

We visited Ipoh for 3 days travelling up from KL on the train. Having done a bit of initial exploring on our own we were pleased to sign up for the Ipoh Secrets day tour. Our guide was John who met us at our hotel to get underway at 8am. We had opted to go to Gua Tempurung cave so went off there first with breakfast on the way in a small local cafe. The tour included
visits to museums, temples, historic sites and a city walking tour. John acted as the driver and was an excellent guide at each stop. He helped particularly with the history of tin mining in the Ipoh area and many historical details of Ipoh's development and provided useful insights into the lives of the 19th & early 20th century inhabitants of Ipoh. If you want to see Ipoh in more detail I would recommend the Ipoh Secrets tour and would like to thank John for making it such a great trip.

Really enjoyed our tour with Ipoh Secrets! Our guide, John, shared lots of great historical facts and stories that helped us better understand Malaysia & Ipoh-specific history and culture. John was great about answering our questions and tailoring our tour.

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

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!

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.

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
