Nice short tour of KL. Nice vehicle and a really good guide....heather richmond, United Kingdom, 05/Mar/2014
This was a great private tour. We got a good introduction to the different areas of Kuala Lumpur. We got to see many different places like temple, mosque, and even the new kings...TONJE FALLAN ISAKSEN, Norway, 05/Feb/2012
We arranged a private city sightseeing tour. Booking the tour and further communications were excellent. We could spend as little or as much time as we wanted at each site....Karen Paradise, United Kingdom, 17/Jan/2011
