    Excellent guide, Johnson, always full of curiosity about the history and customs of his country. Long journey and unfortunately little time available to wander freely through places alas too attacked by the tourism business, as almost always happens in these parts. Overall a trip that still deserves to be done.

    We received an email the evening before and a WhatsApp in the morning when we would be picked up. The tour guide Mcpall was really great. Lots of information in very good English. The tour is scheduled to last 10 hours... of which 6 hours was driving. Back it was a disaster. Lunch really isn't anything special in a big restaurant, it's chicken and rice. Nothing great... other than that there is plenty of free time to see everything... a bit too much for us. Otherwise everything was well organized and carried out very well by Pall.

    Mc was very knowledgeable about the history as well as the historical sights in malakka. The beginning of the tour he greeted us with respect and humility. Explained all the sights with depth clarity and was more than accommodating to guests needs including places to go eat and break so we don’t get tired. Both him and the driver were an excellent team. Good job and keep up the hard work.
