Entertaining and factual tour.
Our Guide was very knowledgeable with local knowledge and expertise. Highly recommend taking this tour. We got an overview of the city and could then decide what we wanted to do for the rest of our stay.
Highly recommended tour!

Great guide and great private tour with Mr. Raja! Love that I could tour at my own pace. He even added extra stops along the way. Be careful at the Batu caves as the monkeys are aggressive. Private tours are the way to go!

MalaysiaTraveler1, 19-09-2022
I found this tour a great way to see some of the historical monuments and places of interests in a large city like Kuala Lumpur. I was able to decide which places I was most interested in, so the tour was tailored to me. The tour guide/driver was good, although I would have liked a bit more background historical information at some of the stops.
