Amazinf and informative tour, totally worth it.

My tour of Kuala Lampur with Gana was amazing. Gana has lived in the city his whole life and knows everything there is to know about the city. His depth of knowledge and affable personality made this a tour thst you simply cannot miss. Great guy and I wish all cities had tour guides like Gana!

Unser Guide hatte es zwar immer sehr eilig, aber nur, weil er uns Vieles zeigen wollte. Er ist auch auf unsere Wünsche eingegangen, z.B. als wir den alten Bahnhof auch von innen sehen wollten. Ein Highlight war der Besuch des alten Royal Palace, jetzt ein Museum mit dem Mobiliar der früheren Könige. Es war unser 3. Besuch in K.L., aber dieses Mal haben wir auch jede Sehenswürdigkeit ausführlich betrachten dürfen, nicht nur aus einem Bus heraus.
