What people are saying about Kuala Lumpur
Great tour, would highly recommend. Pace was fantastic gave a good taste of what Melaka has to offer. There was also free time allocated which was great for shopping and just exploring on your own. Ian was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable, fun and approachable. He also gave great local tips not just limited to the Melaka tour.
Chandra of Ivy Holidays conducted the tour. He is very knowledgeable and gave us a pleasant commentary on our journey. The cave, temples, monkeys and rather challenging steps made for an excellent and recommended trip.
Was very straight forward, my tour guide Stephen did a great job! He kept us entertained on the bus, gave us good background info on the places we were visiting, and cracked some good jokes!
Super day trip to do if you want to explore the KL surroundings. We really enjoyed it! Charlieboy was a great guide, real added value :)
The destinations were interesting and the driver was knowledgeable without bombarding you with information.
