The tour bus was punctual, with a very knowledgeable driver in Mr Avalee. he was excellent, giving information on the historical sites visited and insight into the Malaysian cultural landscape, a mixture of fact, fun & anecdotes, which made the two hour drive to Melaka less odious. The tour itself involves a good bit of walking and really can not do the city justice in such a short time, to visit all of the museums and cultural landmarks would take days. In saying that, a good overview was received and should we ever return, more time will be spent. I highly recommend Ivy Holidays for their professionalism and in particular Mr Avalee.

Edward was the perfect tour guide, arriving at our hotel on time, with a very clean modern mini bus. After driving for approx. 1.5 hours we arrived at beautful Malaka. Edward was a very informative guide. We visited the Fort, Malaka Red Square, Harmony Street and Junker Street amongst many other stops. Edward explained the history of Malaka and the buildings.
Lunch was at a small traditional Malaysian restaurant and was plentiful and delicious. There was ample tome to wander at each stop to explore further and take photographs.
I would highly recommend this tour.

We really enjoyed this day trip from Kuala Lumpur. There were about 7 of us in a air con minibus, with our driver/guide, taking 2 hours to get to Melaka. We saw all the najor sights and had a lovely lunch in a Melaka restaurant where we shared a number of local dishes. Great value trip.

We booked this tour on the Viatour site. I called to do the booking as I wanted to be dropped off at the airport when the tour ended The Viatour lady that did the booking said that she would put in a note for the company to contact me if there was a problem I never heard anything so I called the local contact # that was in the confirmation but it did not work so I called Viatour and spoke to an excellent woman who arranged a 3 way chat with the tour operator He said that we would have to leave at 7 AM in order to do everything so that we could be at the airport for a 4 PM drop off. He also indicated that he wanted a $40 US surcharge for the airport drop off We eventually settled on $25 US as that was the price I paid from the airport to our hotel
Our driver Stephen picked us on time and we headed off to Malacca. He never told us about our planned itinerary. Our first stop was mini Malaysia where he pulled up and walked us to the entry way. He told us to buy our tickets and wander around for 30 minutes. No hint as why we stopped or what was there. There were housed from each of the 13 states. No one was there to tell us anything so we left after 15 minutes next stop was an old Church from Portuguese times Again we were told to go in and have a look No charge here. Then we went to centre of Malacca. Stephen parked the car. He pointed towards St Paul’s church he said to wander the area to the left and right We were to meet him in 3 hours He basically gave no useful information. We wandered a bit and realized that we really could not figure out what to see There were bicycle chair tours in the waterfront area which we took for 50 Ringit. We at least got to see the areas of interest . We then stopped to do lunch ( on our own... not part of the tour) We found Stephen who did not seem concerned about our lack of enthusiasm for Malacca We headed back to the airport arriving at 2:30 PM
We were not happy having had to leave at 7 AM when 8 AM would have been fine We were not happy that we had a driver not a guide. I wrote to Viatour to complain but as of yet ( 3 days later) no one has addressed our concerns

It was a fantastic and knowledgeable trip. 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. Even with this Corona situation most places are still open. So I could explore a lot of places. 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!

Had a lovely day visiting Malacca.
Due to the Coronavirus scare there was only 4 plus the guide so we got up close and personal tour.
Saw all the sights and had lunch in a typical Malaysian restaurant.
Guide was very knowledgeable.

Highly and unequivocally recommended tour.
The guide was outstanding, spoke perfect English, was courteous, and well organized. The lunch was fantastic, the bus is air-conditioned and clean. Excellent deal and program. Very reasonable price. I was disappointed that most of the passengers did not tip the guide.

I went on this one day tour of Melaka with our wonderful guide Chandra. Chandra was a fountain of knowledge and told us all sorts - both about Melaka itself and also Malaysia in general. We stopped for a really tasty lunch and Chandra ensured my dietary requirements were catered for (something that isn’t easy for me in Asia!)
Melaka itself is a great place to escape to for the day with lots of interesting history and art. Recommended!
