What To Expect

Melaka's history began in 1403 with the arrival of Parameswara, an exiled Hindu Prince from the Kingdom of Sri Vijaya in Sumatra. He assumed the title of Raja Iskandar when he embraced Islam and became the first ruler of this new kingdom which marked the early beginnings of the Sultanate of Melaka.

In time, Melaka gained prominence as a vibrant maritime trading center and was coveted by several foreign powers. The Portuguese led by Alfonso's Albuquerque conquered Melaka in 1511 and colonized it for 130 years. The Dutch then came in 1641 and ruled for 154 years. They were followed by the British in 1824 who ruled until the country gained its independence.

Keep your spirits high as we take you to explore fascinating spots around Malacca!

We had a fantastic day. Our tour guide was great, he had a great sense of humour and his knowledge of Malacca was fantastic. Our lunch was very nice also. I would recommend this tour to others.

Our driver was very good and managed well on a day that was very busy in Melacca. We did a little more walking that would be normal on this trip but that was fine for our group. Unfortunately Jonkers Street was just too packed to enjoy a stroll along on this day, but we saw some great sites of this lovely historical town.

Still have question?

How do I book on Inspitrip?

For most experiences on Inspitrip, there are two options: Small Group and Private tour. For both options, you can chat with your local guide and other people in your group even before the trip takes place.
  • Small group tour: operates with a maximum number of people. If you like to make new friends, this is a great option. You would pay for the trip to confirm your slot, then join a chat group with your local guide as well as fellow travel buddies, everything would be on Inspitrip. Get to know them!
  • Private tour: maximizes your privacy and allows you to freely customize the itinerary. First, request to communicate any specific needs you may have, wait a couple minutes for these requests to be confirmed, and then you can proceed to payment.

What is the cancellation and refund policy?

Cancellation is free if you cancel up to 48 hours before the trip date. We believe that this is the fairest way to ensure that both our travelers and local guides are happy.

Does the Small Group option still operate if there are less than the maximum number of people signed up?

Yes, even if you are the only person who signs up for the trip on a given date, the tour will still take place.

My question is not listed here. What should I do?
