Following a hotel pick-up at 9:00 AM from you hotel in the Kuala Lumpur City, your first stop will be St. Francis Xavier Church.

What people are saying about Malacca City

We decided last minute to go to Malakka and were suprised to see the whole transaction was done in a couple of minutes. We received a confirmation with all details and the schedule for the trip and about an hour later we were contacted via WhatsApp by our guide Ganesh to confirm the time and place of the pick-up the next morning. Ganesh, a very nice guy, showed us to all the sights in the old city, telling us about its history. Afterwards he left us to do some shopping in Jonker Street and to meet him later in a local Chinese restaurant for a nice lunch. We found it to be a very interresting and entertaining trip which we would not like to have missed.

It is a genuine private tour. Pick up from the hotel at 7am sharp. Drop off at the hotel around 4 pm. Powerful air-conditioned car. Our guide Sam was fantastic. Explaining everything all through the tour. Very knowledgeable about the history of Melacca. He surprised us at the end with a tour to the Chocolate factory (we bought more than our share of tasty chocolate) & to the Pewter factory Royal Selangor where a guided tour was really informative.

Our guide was so friendly and brought us appropriate places where first-time travelers must see. Eventually, he, Kuma-san, speaks Japanese even English tour, and we could communicate easily. He tried to go wherever we wanted, tried to do whatever we wanted. He was the best guide I’ve ever met before. Thank you so much, Kuma-san !

Driver/guide (Sara) was very knowledgeable and informative. (Did talk a little too much about himself !).

Margan was an amazing tour guide. So knowledgeable and friendly
