It was a brilliant trip and our guide was brilliant , The only fault was the picking up, they wouldn’t pick us up at hotel and made arrangement to pick us up somewhere else but no one knew where it was so a lovely cab driver had to ring the company to arrange a place for us, very confusing , brilliant trip when we was picked up , would use your company again

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.

Fantastic experience - highly recommended to all visitors to Kuala Lumpur, including solo travellers like me. Even if you have no previous experience, the friendly guide will show you the ropes. I really enjoyed exploring KL Park and learning all about the different plants, flowers and birds.

Fun packed day with a very knowledgeable guide. Waterfall stop was beautiful, lovely refreshments at strawberry farm and breath taking views at BOH tea plantation. Nice lunch overlooking golf course fascinating watching Cameron Highlands ‘Micheal Jackson’s’ blow pipe demonstration!

Great day out. Our guide Stephen was great. Super informative, very funny and even went out of his way to drop us back by our hotel even though it wasn’t in the drop off/ pick up zone! Would definitely recommend this trip.
