It was a fantastic tour. Tim was energetic, friendly and with a wealth of local knowledge. It was a small group so we get to chat and share and eatnone stop. There were so much food. We made 3 stops. First a Malay food court, 2nd a Chinese street night market and lastly an Indian restaurant. We didn’t just get to try those yummy food but also check out the life at the night market and chat with locals. Warning... make sure you come with an empty stomach. And pace yourself, don’t stuff yourself at the first stop. It’s a 3 hours of eating. Tim was so lovely he ended the tour with a night tour of the Merdeka square and the river of life. He even organise the driver to drop us off at our individual hotels. It was totally an amazing night. Definitely do not if you like food :)
This was by far the best food tour I’ve ever taken! We tried sooo many different dishes from the three main cuisines in Malaysia. This tour took us to the best restaurants and food stalls that I definitely couldn’t have found on my own. I also got to try foods that I wouldn’t have know to try! In addition, our guide was incredibly kind, friendly and informative! He not only showed us the food, but told us about the cultures and traditions surrounding it, introduced us to the locals who make the food, and offered a great insight into the Malaysian way of life! He even went over time with us to make sure that we saw, ate, and experienced everything to the fullest! I 100% recommend this tour!
It wound up being a private tour, which was unexpected but a good deal. I just couldn’t finish all of the food myself and felt bad about wasting things in order to try everything! My guide was very nice and helpful at moderating the amount so that I could try a lot of things. He knew many people at the food court and night market which made it fun! I got to try a good amount of things but I think I would have tried more if there were others on the tour. I appreciated the guides flexibility throughout the tour and our ability to chat about life in Malaysia!
A fantastic evening! And seriously there is so much food that we didn’t eat for nearly a day afterwards! Tim, our guide, was great. He first took us to a Malaysian street food area and we sampled a number of dishes. Then we went to the Chinese night market and had all sorts of things from the stalls. Before going to the final stop of an Indian restaurant for various roti Tim took us around Kuala Lumpar to see a flower market and sweet stalks. Also at the end of the evening he took us to see more of the city
When they say this tour is "Off the beaten track" they really mean in. Our wonderful tour guide Anna took us to several markets and restaurants outside the city where only the locals tend to go. She spoke passionately about local cuisine and culture, and shared some of her favourite dishes with us. We got to sample a really wide range of foods, all of which were super delicious, and even got to see some of them being made. Can't recommend this tour highly enough!
