The Guide, Nantha, made the trip exceptional. He was jovial, very knowledgeable, very patient. He explained everything in detail and gave ample time to enjoy it. Excellent tour!! The guide gave us TWO hours of his time. I was coping with a foot injury and not once did he rush me, so I felt very comfortable! Great person. The fact that he was " eye candy" did not hurt one bit!

Our tour guide was great! Treated us to some very special and local dishes that we would’ve never tried otherwise. You could tell he didn’t work on commission because we had to wait in line like everyone else! Very local Malay food tour.

Very good excursion 2 regrets: no visit to the mosque because schedule closed to tourists. Plan 1 itinerary in accordance with the times Indian restaurant lunch, I would have preferred 1 Malaysian specialty

Really good experience today. Was supposed to be a group booking but as other people cancelled I had a private tour! Such good value from a friendly and knowledgeable driver. Highly recommend it

Really nice trip! Would recommend it to everyone who‘s the first time in KL
