Although Ipoh was a city 2 hours away from Kuala Lumpur, we did enjoy the tour. We booked on a weekend but the operator advised if possible to book on a weekday as the traffic will be bad since we had no.of booking with this company. Hence we went on a working day where the traffic was clear. Overall satisfied.
