    We did the amazing Melakka tour on the 8/11/22 as part of our honeymoon activities, and honestly it was such a wonderful experience. Learning about Malaysia’s history was quite interesting and insightful. Our tour guide was so lovely, he took the time to answer our questions and allowed us plenty of time to take photos where we wanted to. He was humorous and friendly to spend the day with. We also got to meet other people from all around the globe which was nice and interactive. The lunch provided by locals was delicious and authentic. It gave us time to regroup and socialise with the group. We also went exploring around China Town to experience how the locals live and able to spend some free time there. Overall, an all around great experience. Would highly recommend. 10/10.

    The trip was interesting and not too rushed. A good local meal was provided. The host Lucas was informative in giving the history of Malacca and its place in Malaysia’s history. A very worthwhile trip and I would say very good value for money except as a solo traveller I was forced to pay for 2 places which seems odd since it was a shared trip (17 people). Why only one place cannot be booked is quite strange and would seem to me could stop many solo travellers booking. I was glad I went though.

    Well coordinated pickup to the main coach for a comfortable ride to Malacca. Our guide was straight in with an informative talk on some history of KL and Malaysia. Rest stop on the way. Well conducted tour of Malacca, pretty tasty lunch and an hour of free time. Thoroughly enjoyed the day!
