My brother and his family went to Malacca recently and they had a horrible experience with the rickshaw tour. The family of 6 hired two rickshaws to bring them around. The Chinese rickshaw driver charged RM40 per rickshaw. That was supposed to be a 1-hour ride, and covered 9 places of interest.
However, only about 15 mins into the tour, the rickshaw drivers hassled them and drive them to the last place. By then they had only covered 3 places. When my brother requested him to bring them to the rest of the 6 places, he demanded extra money from them. My sister-in-law felt that it was a rip-off and she kept complaining to the driver. Guess what, the driver brought them to a small alley and asked them if they wanted a fight! The whole family felt terrified as their safety were threatened.
I wish to highlight this to everyone so that you'll be more careful. Don't fall prey to these unscrupulous rickshaw driver!
