This was my last day in KL and I wanted to see an overview of historic landmarks. I booked last minute and thankfully, there was a guide available . It was hot and humid so taking a private car was helpful. The guide was extremely knowledgeable about all of the locations we visited and kept my attention with colorful stories. I would recommend this tour.

Great to have a one on one tour with my guide. He was very knowledgeable and happy to be flexible when I wanted to stop for some shopping! I only had one free day in KL due to travelling on business so the half day tour was perfect for me. The stops gave me a good overview. Would recommend

We stayed in Kuala Lumpur for just a couple of days and booked this tour last minute via Tripadvisor. My 13 years old son is a history buff. I was right, he learned a lot and enjoyed this tour. Aris was our guide and he was perfect. He was friendly, informative and patient with us. I am also into taking site pictures for my FB, lol. Aris accommodated and met all our tourists needs. We visited all the sights mentioned in the tour package and more. Sooo glad we booked this. Very worth it! Highly recommended! Thank you again, Aris!
