Historical Malacca Full-Day Tour from Kuala Lumpur including Lunch
From $74.00
Visit historic Malacca City, the capital of the Malaysian state of Malacca, on this guided, full-day sightseeing tour from Kuala Lumpur. Visit some of the most popular top sites in this UNESCO World Heritage City, like the 16th-century, Portuguese St. Paul’s Church and A Famosa fortress, Christ Church, the Stadthuys in the Red Square and much more. Enjoy a traditional Malaysian lunch and explore Jonker Street, the center street of Chinatown. Hotel pickup and drop-off and any necessary entrance fees are included.
What to Expect
After a Kuala Lumpur hotel pickup, travel approximately two hours south in a comfortable, air-conditioned motor coach for a full day of sightseeing in Malacca City on the Malay Peninsula's southwest coast.
Begin with a visit to the Stadthuys, a historical landmark structure located in the heart of Malacca City in the Red Square. Then take in a panoramic view of Malacca City and the surrounding region from the top of St. Paul’s Hill, which features historic St. Paul’s Church, the oldest church building in Malaysia and Southeast Asia and part of the Malacca Museum Complex.
Enjoy a traditional Malaysian lunch at a local eatery, then follow the guide to Jonker Street, the center street of Chinatown. Once renowned for its antique shops, Jonker Street now features clothing and craft outlets as well as restaurants.
Finally, visit the A Famosa fortress, which is among the oldest surviving European architectural remains in southeast Asia, and stop at Cheng Hoon Teng, a Chinese temple practicing the Three Doctrinal Systems of Taoism, Confucianism and Buddhism.
The tour ends with a return trip to Kuala Lumpur.

I am not aware of this, but I am sure there are tours available in Malacca. However, my advise is not to take the tour as everything interesting in the city is at walking distance and can be done on your own.

I don’t believe you will find a Spanish speaking guide easily in Malaysia. This company only had an English / Malaysian speaking guide.
