Booked a full day heritage tour from Ipoh Secret on 15 Mar 23. We had John as our guide for the day.

Overall experience was very good. John was very knowledgeable in explaining the history during the guided tour. (The kids really learnt a lot) We went to places such as Kellie Castle, Ho Yat Ho Museum, and Concubine Lane. John was also helpful in sourcing the perfect place for our meals. Love the Yong Tau Foo.

John went an extra mile in helping us sourced for a less crowded breakfast place for the next day, which we really appreciated.

Please keep up the good work buddy!

I've been to Ipoh lots of times for food. So this is the first time I've availed a tour to get to know Ipoh on a different light! Our guide, John, was very knowledgeable and give details that only locals will know. he brings us to places that we usually passed by but he have insights that we've never known before... yet he says "can google lah". He also took us to restaurants that serves good food but really affordable. Told us interesting stories about places and spots. And he got good sense to manage our tour time well.

Highly recommended tour and guide for Ipoh!

Hahaha, yes can Google... if you let me continue my story mode, the Heritage Tour part will take up the whole day!!! For those who're interested, it's about the assassination of Mr. Birch and the multiverse, the story of Ipoh version of "What If...?" Well history is full of interesting bits that lead you further down the rabbit hole...

It was a last minute decision to take up this pte heritage tour, and we were glad we did. Our guide was Simon. He was pleasant, polite, patient and was flexible enough to adcede to the change in itinerary. Due to expected thunderstorm in the afternoon, we requested to do swap the morning old town tour with the afternoon caves tour. The tour went smoothly. The caves were beautiful, esp like the Kek Lok Tong cave. Due to Qingming Jie, we went to Perak cave instead. Lunch was at a buzzy unpretentious coffee shop for an absolutely delicious Yong Tau Foo lunch. We decided take a cursory look at Kellie Castle from outside, and then proceeded to Pomelo plantation, an extra "complimentary" stop! Afternoon was a quick run in the rain through the old town. Highly rec this tour to provide a quick overview of Ipoh's key attractions!

A great experience, relaxed, interesting, and totally flexible to our schedule. Felt like spending a day being shown around a friend’s hometown, going to many places we wouldn’t have found on our own. John was very patient with our two kids also, and they really enjoyed the day.

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 :)

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.

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!!
