It’s a really good overview of the town and as a Singaporean the great thing about a local guide is that we were taken to all the best local favourites not just the touristy spots.
Gavin our guide was very friendly and helpful. As it was a private tour, we could request changes, for example, I had no interest in temples or the pomelo farm but wanted to see Kellie’s Castle which I think is a must go for photography. For a small additional fee, as it was quite a way out of town, we have a great time exploring this unique building.
A tip is to bring a hat, it was pretty hot walking around the castle.
We enjoyed this tour very much. Our guide John took us to breakfast and dinner to local places we would not have visited. Both meals were great! The tours of Orangutan Island, coffee making, coal production and incense making were all good. John went out of his way to ensure we saw all there was to see at each stop. The day was well worth the money!
The experience is excellent. Simon is very friendly & helpful. The driver is also good. Simon contacted me a day b4 the tour and gave me the van number. They also arrived early on the actual day. Simon is very knowledgeable about the history of Ipoh. The tour is great.
Simon also recommended places that are near to our accommodation to eat and indeed they are nice.
Thumbs up for Simon and also the driver. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Well greeted by our friendly and polite tour guide, Mr Chandran! Journey to Ipoh although was long but Mr Chandra’s sharing on his knowledge of the history behind Ipoh was very much enlightening for us to know more about Ipoh! Making the trip very much enjoyable and meaningful to learn about every stops we made in Ipoh! Best part was the piping hot and scrumptious chicken rice we had for lunch and the shopping for Ipoh delicacies to be be brought home as gifts for friends and relatives! Highly recommended choice for visitors who want to learn more of Ipoh history and shopping!
Thank you so much our tour guide as well as our driver, Raja for taking care us throughout the trip. As this is our first time visiting Malaysia, he provided lots of information about the attractions as well as the cities we visited.
Sufficient time was given to visit the attractions during the day trip so no need to rush at all. The highlight of the trip is that we told Raja that we would like to buy some peanut candies in Ipoh as souvenirs, Raja drove us to the shop and accompanied us to queue up for more than 2 hours. He asked my wife and my young baby to wait inside the car and helped her to queue up. This is so nice and thank you very much for the kindness.
The guide was very nice and friendly and explain the environment of the rainforest clearly and interesting. The view was awesome and we were so lucky to spot the rafflesia flower but unfortunately didn’t spot any animal in the rainforest as the guide said the chances to spot them was low due to the low population. As a conclusion, highly recommend to those who are interested in jungle trekking.
