    The trip was amazing and exceeded my expectations. The group was fun and the driver made the whole trip one to remember. I will definitely recommend this to my friends and especially the driver: he was well informed, easy going, fun and ready to help through out the whole trip.

    Very interesting visit, a place with a lot of history, from the Portuguese, Dutch, Japanese…well organized trip, spectacular guide, we passed by the place called Little Lisboa where the Portuguese specialized in the art of fishing, all that was left was to go by the sea… tour not to be missed.

    The best part of the tour was the guide’s mastery of the information. Lucas seems to be doing this everyday but he still sounds interested and seemingly interested to educate too. Lucas is the guy for this tour. Melacca however seems too touristy nowadays. Last time I visited it was charming now it seems too busy and touristy. Overall, it was an enjoyable trip just to get out of the city.
