This was my 4th visit to KL and each time it take and morning City Tour to get a flavour of the city. This time we were with friends and we had a fabulous tour that we all enjoyed. Sodoz was an excellent Tour Guide, knowledgeable, fun and full of stories.
Exactly the tour we wanted!

My partner and I were staying in Kuala Lumpur for a couple of days and booked a tour with Brendon to explore the city, learn about Malaysian culture, get food tips and to meet a local. Brendon delivered all of that! We met in the city centre, told him what we had been up to the previous days, our dietary restrictions and based on that Brendon guided us through the city. We learned a lot, got recommendations and had a lot of fun throughout the tour. We will recommend Brendon as a guide to anyone coming to KL. Ideally, you book him on the first day so you know what to do the following days too. Thanks Brendon! Marina & Philipp
Great tour!

Really enjoyed this walking tour. Povan, my tour guide, had a great knowledge of Malaysia and I learnt so much about Kuala Lumpar. I gained historical knowledge and interesting facts that I would have never known unless I’d taken this tour. It was also a lot of fun! I would highly recommend!
An interesting tour with a friendly guide

Once we got going, as we were the only people on the tour, our guide, Joel, customised the tour to suit us. Joel is very knowledgeable and shared plenty of Malaysian history with us. At the end he even went to get his car and drive us back to our hotel.

The only negative, not Joel's fault, was that the Ecopark was unexpectedly closed.
Good way to get round some of the key sights

Good way to get round the city and get your bearings with a knowledgeable guide. Unfortunately not everything was open that was scheduled for the route so be careful which day you do the tour as we did not know this in advance. We did a detour to a traditional custard tart shop we had read about which was well worth a visit and Paul was happy to accommodate the request.
