    It was a good trip to see Mallacca. Driver/guide was a very nice man. He tried very hard to give the group the history. But they were more interested in getting the perfect photo for Instagram. The first and oldest church we stopped at wasn’t that much to look at, but it had good history. Guide wasn’t great at structuring the group. Had to wait a while while one or two finished their photo shoot. But it was a challenging group. Wish there was more broad history on Malaysia and Mallaca than only about the holy buildings. Lots of stairs up to Dutch church, wasn’t inspecting that. Much hotter and humid than KL. Drive was a smooth 2hrs getting there. 3.5hrs coming back, most likely due to the flooded roads.

    Maybe Malacca is an important city in Malaysian history, but from a tourist's point of view, it is a city that has yet to reactivate after the pandemic. Many premises are closed. The river is a de facto polluted canal, especially after a downpour. They say it's the Venice of the East ... Big exaggeration, very big ...

    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.
