  • Enjoyed the tour, it consisted mainly of an Indian and Chinese meal. Our group would have preferred a more diverse selection of tasters. The walk into the City was very interesting and informative

  • Charles is a wonderful guide--tour included not only a few stops stops for food, but many different locations and venues for a full Malaysian experience. Included lots of information about the country, customs and ethnic groups, showed us lots of sights along the way. The best food tour I've ever been on!

  • This was a wonderful way to get insights into the culture and food of Kuala Lumpur.Our guide, Charlie, was great fun and provided really interesting information in a way that engaged the group. The numbers in the group were small12 so it was a fun way to spend a few hours while meeting some lively other travellers. Highly recommend it!

  • Our family had a great time on this tour! The food was great and there was a lot of variety to try. We enjoyed walking around the city and seeing day to day life. Charlie was an informative and friendly tour guide. We would definitely do this again.

  • Best part of Kuala Lumpur was this food tour. It was the best! Enjoyed every minute of it, and enjoyed the food. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and very helpful.

  • Amazing food tour, in which we had the true locals experience. Charlie our guide was brilliant and not only did he take us to a collection of fantastic hole in the wall restaurants, but he also had an amazing relationship with the owner of these small business, which really showed the pride both parties had for amazing local Malaysian cuisine.
    Additionally, we had way more than enough amazing food and the walking wasn't too far.
    Recommend to all!!

  • A great overview and taste of the different foods of Malaysia. An easy walk I'm 70ish with a little of history from our terrific guide, Charlie. There was a short light rail trip which also helped with the method of transport if you are going to use it on another day. You don't need breakfast before the tour as you get plenty of really tasty things to eat!

  • This was really varied. No pressure to eat things if you don't fancy it. Felt safe too.

  • This tour was great. Couldn't imagine a better way to be introduced to the street food of KL.

  • This tour was great, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and the food superb. I love walking tours and have done a few, but this would be one of the best! I would highly recommend it.
