Great family tour with John to Taiping & Ipoh
Apr 2019 • Family
My family had a great time touring with John - we would never have seen and learnt so much without his help. He spoke excellent English and was great with our two boys, aged 10 and 12.
For our first trip John picked us up from our hotel in Penang and drove us to the Oran Utan Sactuary. Whilst it looks like the animals are caged it was actually us in a cage and the animals were free to roam the island. It was nice to see these beautiful creatures. John then drove us to Taiping where we visited the botanic gardens, had lunch in a local food court, visited the coffee mill (had lots of tastings here), museum, coal factory and joss stick factory. We then finished the day at the fisherman's village where John helped us order a beautiful seafood meal and we watched the sun set over the water. John then drove us to our hotel in Ipoh. It was a great day!
For our second trip John picked us up from our hotel in Ipoh and we did the Secrets of Ipoh tour. We went to the old town first which was very beautiful, we also visited temples inside of caves which were amazing, we had lunch at a local restaurant and it was one of the best meals we had. We then visited Kellies Castle which was surprisingly interesting and a local orchard before heading back to our hotel.
The next day John drove us to Kuala Lumpur for our flight home.
All of John's services were fantastic, he was very prompt and also flexible when we needed to change days/times. He was so helpful and we were grateful for his services. I would definitely recommend a trip to Ipoh and traveling with John :)

Discover Ipoh's secrets with a local
Feb 2019 • Couples
We had 2 half day private tours with John of Ipoh Secrets. As this was a homecoming trip for us, we had given John a list of places of personal interest and he managed to track them down and organised 2 wonderful tours incorporating the must-see places and our personal requests. He ferried us around in a comfortable and spacious MPV and gave us information that only a local would know. He was also very patient, allowing us time to reminisce in places that were meaningful to us.
Best of all, he brought us to places where locals eat, so we got to taste the authentic Ipoh cuisine in the genuine environment.
Highly recommended!

It is my pleasure to bring you all around! Without this trip, I would not venture to the street named after the first non-Malay to be awarded the title of Dato, no idea what Ayamas in downtown used to be, and a chance to know more about Ipoh 50 years ago! Thank You!!

Best recommended for a private tour!
We booked our Ipoh Historical Tour at Viator, weeks before we flew to KL (continued with land-ride to Ipoh). Very soon afterwards, we got an email from John Lee, informing that our tour-order would be organized by Ipoh Secrets. We were picked up (promptly as promised) by John Lee at the lobby of our hotel in Meru and were driven to Ipoh old town, as the 1st itinerary in our list. John parked his car at a big square, I forget the name of the square, but we were surrounded by old historical buildings (one of them is Old Town coffee's first office, the other is HSBC, etc) and at one corner we could see grey doves were flying and also the artistic murals. We continued our walk to the train station (it was a hospital once), then the Birch tower, and the concubine lane. It was a very interesting walk. The day was warm, the sky was very blue, our guide was very informative and friendly. We also visited the herbal tea museum and tasted 3 kinds of warm-energizing herbal tea.

Our other destinations were: the temple-cave (it was kind of carved on the cliffs, very unique indeed with the turtles as additional attraction ), the Kek Lok Tong cave (where you could see the stallagtites), Kellie's castle (the famous movie set), and the unforgettable-very delicious lunch (at Warung Laksa Telur Goreng Bersarang). Do I forget something?

Overall, we are very satisfied with Ipoh Secret Tours, and also many thanks to our kind and smart guide: John Lee.
