You get to experience the key areas of Malacca, with lots of free time to venture out on your own. It’s quite nice meeting other travelers as well. Unfortunately, it was difficult to hear our tour guide over the noise of the bus (we were sat in the back of the bus). For this reason, I didn’t hear all of the history. However, our tour guide, Stephen, was very friendly and knowledgeable. Also, the church was closed when we arrived, which was unfortunate.

Excellent tour! All very well organized and professional. The guide was excellent, very knowledgeable and able to manage a large group with different age groups and interests. Lunch was served in a simple restaurant, but the food was very well prepared with seafood, chicken curry and vegetarian options. It was a fun and informative tour! It was so worth it!

If you want to visit Malacca, this company is the right choice. The trip was very good organised. Our guide, Nadia, was very knowledgeable, and even though she is the kindest and most polite human being, she managed to keep the group to be on time at each step of the trip. The transportation was with a bus, very clean and pretty new I believe. The driver was also great and friendly, helping people whenever possible.
