A very good way to see around the city, visit the important landmarks and know about them. Definitely better than other city tours like the Hop On Hope Off ones, as you get a personal driver cum guide. Our guide Mr.Charles Prabhu had been very interactive, gave us important information throughput the trip, helped us in our photo opps, to make the entire tour truly amazing. Buffet lunch was arranged in an Indian restaurant; although seemingly a good restaurant, the food was just about average, but that was ok as the overall experience was good.

Our guide Ganesh was super. He called the night before to confirm the pick up time and to give me his license plate # so that I would recognize him He was well organized and full of good information He dropped us at the various stops giving us precise details as to what to look for and where to find him when we were finished

A little pricey but I’m glad I did it. I learned so much about KL that I’m sure I would have never discovered it with a simple hop on hop off. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and professional. Would definitely recommend especially if you know nothing about Kuala Lumpur.

Great private tour with guide Thomas. Relaxed guide who told everything about the sights, the city of KL and about Malaysia. Also had time to have lunch at a nice Italian restaurant. Recommended!

All went very fine. David has been excellent guide.
