    • A great way to see the highlights of Kuala Lumpur.

    • Interesting,worth doing

    • The tour guide is in old ages, shes good in talking and explaining about the city but not in showing around the places and she cant even walk with us during the city tour as obviously its really hard for her to walk and even go out in the bus.

    • OK, I admit that the rating is mostly because our guide. Unfortunately I forgot his name, and older Indian man - the only guide who was dressed in shirt and wore ties. I booked a few tours here for my trip, but I'm sure he was the best guide I had during my trip. He knew everything about the city and the sights, and was willing to share it. He was also open for private conversation during the stops.
      This tour covers a lot of KL, so it is a good way to get to know the city. Because of the distances, there is a lot of riding during the stops. There is still enough time at every stop to enjoy the sight.

    • We had a lovely guide and saw some interesting things that you wouldnt normally drag yourself around in the heat for. Having said that it was pretty boring. On the coach, stop at destination for 5min photo op. Back on the coach to next stop. And so on. Really not worth it.

    • The tour was dreadful. Not only do we have to pay extra for pickup services but the tour itself wasted our time by making us wait for too long at our hotel and at the place where we were dispatched to wait for the smelly coach. I hated the journey

    • The tour was very informative and we enjoyed it. As with any tour they take you to local businesses in hopes for tourists to buy chocolate, silk, etc. That wasn't bad because it took us to little areas we normally would not have seen. It was authentic.
      The Twin Tower stop was five minutes, so plan going there on your own. That is the best part of the city.
      Hotel pick up and drop off was easy and we enjoyed the tour.

    • Had a great day around KL with our guide Mr. Guna

    • The tour was good for the price. The guide was great, he provided us with good information along the way.

    • Although there was a bit of a communication breakdown which led to us being picked up late from our hotel to the tour, the tour itself was very informative and amazing and led us to taking up an additional tour the next day. The tour guides r very informative and polite, the tour buses are very comfortable and reliable. We loved it.
