When I booked this tour I was worried about how to contact and all. They send me contact and cleared my doubts prior the trip. They shifted my time and managed half day accordingly. The tour guide Albinhar who came was really great and supportive. He did explain everything and took everywhere on time. Good work Trip advisor team for arranging this.

Our tour took away all the hassle of transportation, parking, and access. We were able to just enjoy the sites. Some of the sites we visited were not on our list. But they were well worth the time spent. Never thought I wanted to see a pewter factory. But it was one of the highlights of our trip. Our driver, Rajan was well spoken and knowledgeable enough to answer our unscripted questions about anything related to Malaysia. Well done
