I booked an all day tour through Viator with local company Tripmakers Online Enterprise. Nanthe was my Chauffeur/Guide. Nanthe accompanied me throughout the exploration of Malacca. He was knowledgeable about Malacca, its history and architecture. Nanthe was personable, engaged in intelligent conversation, kind and patient.. Nanthe was an excellent guide.I was introduced to Malacca in the best possible way with Nanthe as my guide. Aditionally, he introduce me to how rubber is harvested and to the importance of palm oil in the economy of Malaysia.

The malacca trip was a long one but enjoyed it with the help of Ganesh, our driver/tour guide. He knows the history of Malacca well and we learned a lot fom him.
One more thing he drove us to Putrajaya on our way for some photo shoots even it is not included in our itinerary. It was a good thing coz my sis-in-law has been telling me to visit the place but we got no more time since it was our last day, so thru Ganesh -wish was granted.

Our day trip to Malaca could not have gone any smoother. The guide picked us up right on time in a brand new private car for just the three of us. Ganesh was very professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about Malaca and Malaysia overall. It was a pleasure listening to him and he did not mind answering all the questions we had. Malaca itself is a cute little town and I wish we had more time to explore. Overall, we had a great time and will definitely use the same agency again and try to get Ganesh as out guide.

We had a very good day with Ganesh who explained Melaka’s story in detail and made us visit the main sites all in a good mood.

We enjoyed this all day private tour to Malacca. Hotel pick-up was on time in a small sedan. Drive to Malacca took two hours, enjoyed seeing the countryside on the drive. Visited many historic sites, including old Portuguese settlement area, Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, St Pauls Church, Kampung Kling Mosque and Sri Poyyatha Vinayagar Moorthi Temple. Lunch was on our own, we only wish we had more time to wander around Jonker Street and the Stadthuys area. Guide was informative and provided great commentary. Tour was taken April 3, 2017.

Patrick was very nice, often forgot about the passengers and that the van was very bumpy and stop and go traffic made it worse.
It was very hot and humid and the absolute slowest walk possible around the city.
Patrick was very knowledgeable but didn't understand how uncomfortable we were.
Spent the majority of the time in Melaka in the Hard Rock Cafe as that was the ONLY place that had air conditioning.

This tour actually was kind boring. Yes, it is full of cultural information, Ganesh was our driver, he was very friendly and knowledgeable about Malacca, but I expected more. The tour is about 3 hours and we spent 4hrs in the car :/
Also there were a lot of places that were a must to see but didn’t.
