Nice cultural trip of Malay history, particularly from the times of Dutch and British colonial era. Typical buildings with Dutch architecture.

The day trip to Malacca was very enjoyable. We were picked up early due to anticipated traffic problems (Chinese New Year) but the journey was very smooth, taking 2 hours to get to Malacca and 3 hours back to KL. That gave us 8 hours in Malacca which was a decent amount of time to see the main sights. The "tour" part around the Malacca historical sites actually only took 2 hours, after which time we were free to do as we wished, which I appreciated. The only issue - and it is a rather big one - was that we were asked to pay the guide an additional USD$20 pp cash at the conclusion of the trip - he said it was for "the extras" but we weren't clear on what the extras were ... Adding another 25% (AU$30) on to a trip which cost AU$117 seemed a bit strange. But we all paid up, as what were we to do? Not saying the guide ripped us off (he was a very lovely man, knowledgeable and informative) but none of us were really clear as to what this "surcharge" was for, and we should have been informed about any surcharges upfront. One of our tour group didn't have any MYR cash on him at all and had to locate a money changer whilst we all waited in the vehicle. Perhaps La Vacanza Travel can respond?

My driver, Aris, was very informative and friendly. He knew all the best spots to visit and where to take the best photos from. The local Malaysian lunch was really tasty. I would definitely recommend this trip to others and if you get Aris as your driver you can't go wrong.
