Churches were destroyed and Catholics were not permitted to have their own cemeteries or even pray in their homes. Priests were also forbidden from administering their flocks. The war of the Spanish Succession resulted in an alliance formed between the Portuguese and the Dutch in 1703. This resulted in the Dutch adopting a softer stance towards the Portuguese Catholics.

Very easy and smooth experience being picked up from our hotel and driven to malacca from KL, stopping off at st Peter's church along the way. Our driver was very friendly and accommodating teaching us little bits about Malaysia as we drove. The city of malacca itself is stunning and our tour guide took us through harmony street and jonker street once we had a chance to explore the red square. He also took us to an Indian restaurant for lunch that had the best biryani I've ever had!

Had a great day out. The guide was very informative, we had time to wander at our leisure and a proper lunch was included. Pickup and return was from our hotel, on time and the 2 of us had a minibus to relax in for the 2 hour trip.

We had an amazing time traveling from KL to Melaka. The stops were very interesting and quick. The town of Melaka was very interesting based on all of the Countries that have controlled the city. Our tour guide really made the trip incredible. He was very knowledgeable about the city and the history, and all of the stories were fantastic. I would highly recommend this trip if you enjoy history! Buckle up as traffic can be pretty brutal to and from KL and Melaka. But don’t let that scare you from booking a trip!

The single most awful tour I have ever done, having travelled to over 50 different countries. The guide was very nice, but wasn't informed of the itinerary, so I blame the company. Imagine after paying for an expensive tour that I had to be the guide, using Google Maps, showing him where to go. He basically wanted me to jump out at the square and wander around myself and he knew nothing whatsoever about Malacca, which was disgraceful if you ask me. This was not his fault as he was not aware of the brief and I again would lay the blame on the company. I rang the company and they said that they would contact me later that evening to discuss the tour .. no phone call was received! Honestly a 1/10 tour all 'round. Very disappointing ..
