Aru is a wealth of knowledge and is a great tour guide. From the moment he arrived to the pier until we were dropped off Aru shared beautiful stories and facts about Kuala Lumpur. We all give Aru 5 stars!

We had a great guide, who was knowledgeable, spoke decent understandable English. He worked with us in terms of the agenda and the places we visited, because I don't have good mobility. Definitely worthwhile experience.
