Great city tour, very experienced guide and very friendly. Picked us up from our hotel on time and was extremely friendly and informative. Highly recommend this experience

The places we visited were all the most important tourist landmarks in KL Our driver’s English was poor and couldn’t tell us much about the sights and facts about the city


20 Dec, 2023

We were driven around the sites rather than guided. We explored the sites ourselves and understand that our driver wasn't well on the day which was no doubt tough for him and we are grateful to have met him. He navigated well and drove us between the sites, pointing out those we didn't stop by however there wasn't much history or context to anything. Highlights were going inside the national mosque and the Chinese temple. The batik shop and workshop visit was a short stop and interesting with no pressure to buy anything.

The tour assistant, Mr Lawrence did a good job. He is very experienced local tour agent, both empirically and historically. I was so fascinated by his vasatility of the ethnoreligious contexts of Malaysia. Overall, Mr Lawrence made the tour a worthwhile experience.
