    The tour was quite nice, the guide was very competent and spoke English very well. Malacca is a very pretty city, which also helps. Unfortunately we weren't able to get inside the first church of the tour, because mess was happening, and I think it's a considerable fail in organization. Make sure you know the meeting point, because there is no pick-up at the hotel lobby (information os incorrect at get your guide). However it is very easy to reach the tour operator and they Will clarify every doubt easily.

    This is a mist do tour when in KL. Beside you will see very nice Malacca town, the tour guide will explain very complex Malaysian history. Our guide, Mr Stephen is full of knowledge and great story teller. You will enjoy how he is explaining everything. As well I have to mention a lunch - delicious and lots of food. All recommendations!!!

    Excellent overview tour, well organised and full of great content. Lunch was very good and nice free time at the end to go back over things that I wanted to reinforce. Nadia was full of information and kept the group nicely on time. Highly recommended
