  • The tour description was accurate in all details. We had a nice time, and were well-guided by our attentive guide and driver, Edison. On the positive side, we got a meaningful exposure to Malaysia within a single day Edison was friendly, responsible and full of information the car was clean and fairly new Edison was flexible about ordering different menu items than those described, and treated us to cold soft drinks mid-afternoon we felt safe at all times Edison was particularly skilled at the border crossings. Minor areas for improvement: legroom was tight in the car for 2 tall people VW Golf the meals tended to be at quick service places rather than formal restaurants, and the food quality was so-so Edison didn't accompany us on the Batu Caves climb, or on the Malacca boat ride. Overall, we had a nice time.

  • We really had a great time. Edison was our guide. He picked us up promptly at 4:30am. Our vehicle was very comfortable. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Singapore and Malaysia and gave useful facts at all our stops. We stopped at all stops as advertised, but in reverse order so as to avoid severe traffic rush hour in Kuala Lumpur. My wife is vegetarian, so our guide made a point to stop at restaurants to accommodate her. We kepp to schedule very efficiently so as to return to our Singapore hotel at about 9:00pm. As with all our previous Viator tours, this one was great!!

  • We had an amazing day trip to Malaysia, we were very limited for time so this was the only glimpse of Malaysia we could fit in. Our driver and guide Edison was wonderful. He had a great knowledge of Malaysia and made Melacca and Kuala Lumpur very interesting for us. We got to taste many of the local delicacies in both cities. We had a nice amount of time at all the places we visited. We especially enjoyed the river cruise at Melacca and Twin Towers and Batu Caves at Kuala Lumpur. Thank you Edison, we really enjoyed spending the day with you!

  • If you have only one day to sample Malaysia this is it.
    Edison the tour guide and driver was superb. He show the major sights of Malacca, the Batu caves and Kuala Lumpur lets you sample many local dishes and makes the long drive pass quickly with his fascinating insights into local history, culture and local customs.
    The tour was expensive, but given how much is packed into a very long day 4.30 am to 10pm. I felt it was good value given how much I learnt about the country.

  • This tour was a great experience! I thought it would be so rushed and superficial as this was just a day trip from SG to KL. It was educational, reasonable time to see the sights and the long drive back and forth to SG was comfortable. I think this was made possible by our guide Edison. He was so knowledgeable/ polite/ accommodating and has a warm persona that made the experience a delight!. For those who are strapped for time but want to experience Malaysia, I highly recommend this!

  • Edison was a pleasant tour guide. Very knowledgeable and flexible with our itinerary. He kept our tour fun and interesting. Definitely one of the highlights on our trips. Highly recommended.

  • Our tour guide, Edison was so terrific! Highly recommend this tour if you don't mind a long day. We were visiting Singapore for 5 days and decided to take a detour to Malaysia for this tour. We had so much fun!!! The sights were great and so was the food! Edison told us all about the country and the cities we visited. This is a trip we will always remember fondly!
