Explore Malaysia’s Cultural Mosaic on a Private Tour
Wandering the capital Kuala Lumpur on a private tour of Malaysia, you can see remnants of the old KL in Chinatown’s shophouse-lined streets. The colonial buildings of Merdeka Square are in stark contrast to the Petronas Towers, the world’s tallest twin buildings. Yet both represent Malaysia—the traditional and the modern, the indigenous and the colonial.
English afternoon tea with scones, Malaysian laksa and roti canai, and endless rounds of satay fresh off the grill, are all popular. In Penang, colonial Georgetown’s Lorong Baru food hawker zone is awash with everything from Chinese favorite congee to Indian-inspired nasi kandar. If you want to scratch beneath the surface to understand the Malay, Chinese, and Indian influences, as well as those of indigenous tribes, we can help you. Enchanting Travels experts are proficient at creating itineraries that take guests under and over, above and beyond, to explore this country’s cultural mosaic.
Island-hopping is just one the many thrills of Malaysia’s Langkawi archipelago. Revel in days filled with golden sunsets and pristine sand beaches, and sipping exotic cocktails at beachfront cafés. You’ll get majestic aerial views from the Sky Bridge, cable car, and even from a zip line on the eco-canopy tour of the rainforest. Water sports facilities abound, to suit every level of challenge and fitness.
Malaysia has outstanding snorkeling and diving opportunities. World-famous for serious diving enthusiasts is Sipadan, across from peninsular Malaysia in the Celebes Sea, just off Borneo, where the last remaining orangutans of the world live. In Kinabatangan visit the Sepilok orangutan rehabilitation center to meet these shaggy-haired creatures. Those doleful eyes never fail to capture the hearts of those who encounter them.
From mountains to caves, Malaysia is a multi-faceted land. Cool, fragrant air greets you in the Cameron Highlands, full of tea plantations and strawberry farms. At Gunung Mulu National Park in Sarawak the underground limestone cave systems, including one of the longest networks of caves in the world, are great for an adventurous detour.

My wife and I have been planning a trip through South America and our Travel Consultant, Lisa Fox, has provided nothing but exceptional service and support to create the perfect itinerary for this trip. Bags were nearly packed and we could picture the view from Machu Picchu, but plans have had to change due to travel safety and restrictions from the recent Coronavirus. While this could have been a very stressful time having to reschedule, rebook and who knows how much money could have been lost for what has already been paid for, Enchanting Travels has made it incredibly easy and stress free to reschedule the trip once this passes. We are very appreciative for the pre-trip support, and can already tell that the experience once we are actually on the road will be equally incredibly. Thanks for all your support!
“Great company, great people!
They helped us put together a complex schedule which included a number of experiences that we could not otherwise get. Also, in light of Covid-19, they were able to reschedule our upcoming Japan trip without additional fees, where many of my friends have scheduled similar trips (same timeframe) on their own, and all were refused a refund or reschedule without significant fees, despite having trip insurance.”
“We have used Enchanting Travels twice for trips. We couldn’t have been happier with the trips planned. Our first trip was a spectacular trip to southern India with driver for three weeks. This year’s trip was to Scotland. Unfortunately with the corona virus pandemic we chose to postpone this trip until 2021. Enchanting travels was very understanding of our concerns and quickly responded by moving our trip with all our desired sights to spring of 2021. Couldn’t ask for anything better from this stellar company with their caring staff.”
“The best thing about Enchanting Travels is the people, from the trip planners to the guides to the drivers. Everyone has been friendly, courteous and professional. The activities and accommodations are planned to fit our wishes, but we still had the flexibility to add or change and activity at short notice.”
Enchanting Travels is a bespoke experience. From planning my trip, through to the trip itself, everything was thought about. We traveled at a particularly difficult time, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We were supported with everything, kept up to date with how the situation was developing and how this might affect us. Having WiFi in the car allowed us to communicate with our Trip Coordinator and check with our online government updates. Our stay was luckily not affected, but I felt so supported by the team. Our guides were ready waiting for us, could answer any questions about the sites we were visiting, they communicated with our chauffeur to ensure everything went smoothly. I could not recommend this company more highly. Excellent planning, experience, and execution. Our holiday was truly ENCHANTING!
“I recently completed a 46-day adventure tour through India that was the best ever thanks to Enchanting Travels. The Enchanting Agent began by interviewing me for an hour and came back with the perfect routing and pacing. The on-the-ground support was second to none. Enchanting says that their trip coordinators are there ‘in case of emergency’ but that does not come near to describing the relationship. My trip coordinator was in constant communication with me to ensure that every leg of the trip went as planned. No detail was too small for her to look after. I was assigned the same driver for 27 days and he was the ‘Best Indian Driver Ever’ because he did more than drive. He curated experiences on the road on those ‘non-planned’ days that I will remember for a lifetime. The value for money was simply remarkable. I don’t think I’ll travel without the help of Enchanting Travels again.”
