What people are saying about Kuala Lumpur
The trip was awesome. The guide Mr.James is a very lettered, loyal, helpful person. He explained all history of the city from the beginning, even history of Malaysia and that was really interesting! Nice of him. I appreciated. When I've searched about Malacca, for first time I thought that it not so interesting place to visit. But I changed my mind when I reached there and saw that beautiful, picturesque city with meaningfull history and mixed ancient architecture styles. Also, I think this trip was so cool because of the guide too. He is literally knows all details about this place. And it was really fascinating. So enjoyed all things. Thank you so much for the organization of such tours. Thank you Mr.James!
Chandra of Ivy Holidays conducted the tour. He is very knowledgeable and gave us a pleasant commentary on our journey. The cave, temples, monkeys and rather challenging steps made for an excellent and recommended trip.
The best tour guide we have ever received. Great tour, great team, very friendly, very competent, highly recommended. Any time! We will never forget. Thank you so much. We hope to see you again. Stay healthy
Nice tour, if exhausting with the approx. 300 steps. Price performance is right in any case.
