Full description
A fascinating blend of Portuguese, Dutch and British influences have made Malacca one of the most popular tourist destinations in Malaysia. Your tour starts at St. Peter's Church and Dutch Square, from where you will head off to A Famosa. This site, a tiny gate is what is left of a once mighty Portuguese fortress, is the oldest surviving European architectural remains in Asia. This site's rich historical background earned it a UNESCO World Heritage Site designation in July 2008. Then, enjoy an authentic Malaccan local lunch at the Perenakan Restaurant. Keep your spirits high as you continue on to see other fascinating spots around Malacca, including Portuguese Square: affectionately referred to as Mini Lisbon, this is an attraction not to be missed. Lastly, enjoy shopping at the famous Jonker Walk bazaar, a market selling a variety of interesting handicrafts and souvenirs - you'll be sure to come across a treasure or two!

Very long excursion, it would be better to take one or two nights there. The guide, David, told us that it was an overview of Malacca that he could give us in such a short time. Indeed, from Kuala Lumpur, the road is long. That said, it is a city very rich in history, the museum is very interesting and a pity that we did not have time to see everything. Malacca is a pretty little colonial town. We didn't even have time to stroll through its alleys when it made you want to. We saw monitor lizards in the river. Our guide is professional: he knows his subject, he respects the schedules, he is helpful (he came back to my hotel the next day to drop me off what I had forgotten in his car) but he speaks quickly even if we point out to him and in as long as you're not an English speaker, it hasn't always been easy

Our tour to Malacca was well judged and interesting, with a gentle walking tour of the historic town centre, a good quality included set lunch and a drive to the “floating” mosque on the seashore. Mr Maidin was a most knowledgable and very considerate driver/guide, taking good care of our preferences and limited physical fitness. We had a most enjoyable day and recommend this excursion.

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.
