The trip was awesome. The guide Mr.James is a very lettered, loyal, helpful person. He explained all history of the city from the beginning, even history of Malaysia and that was really interesting! Nice of him. I appreciated. When I've searched about Malacca, for first time I thought that it not so interesting place to visit. But I changed my mind when I reached there and saw that beautiful, picturesque city with meaningfull history and mixed ancient architecture styles. Also, I think this trip was so cool because of the guide too. He is literally knows all details about this place. And it was really fascinating. So enjoyed all things. Thank you so much for the organization of such tours. Thank you Mr.James!

I had a great experience in Malacca with Hafiz! As always, he was very helpful, polite and friendly. I got to experience some of the tradicional food of Malacca (the custard puffs are probably the best I've ever had!) The trip was very comfortable, Hafiz makes sure you're look after and make you feel comfortable. Absolutely a must do trip!

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.

Our tour guide was great! Treated us to some very special and local dishes that we would’ve never tried otherwise. You could tell he didn’t work on commission because we had to wait in line like everyone else! Very local Malay food tour.

The place was beautiful and the guide was very informative about the historical details of malacca, although the food was not the best, we enjoyed the trip!
