The tour was brilliant, very well organised. Our tour guide Ning (hope I am spelling this correctly, apologies if not) was amazing. Very funny and informative, giving us information and making jokes throughout the day, answering any questions, taking photos for people and making sure we all knew what to do and where to go. The tour ran smoothly, first going to the Batu Caves and then to Genting Highlands. I felt we had a good amount of time at each. You could spend more time at each but I was pleased with the time we had, and it was great to be able to do both in one day. The tour bus was air conditioned and comfortable. The whole trip was great, good value for money, and very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend. Big thank you especially to Ning, an amazing tour guide.

We really enjoyed the tour with Jefri. He took us to places in the perfect order, and suggested what we should see. He was also very well versed in Malaysian history and information about the sights. We really appreciated his effort.

It was a pleasant full day trip, we visited two very different places near Kuala Lumpur, 2 icons of the city! Zura was a very helpful and attentive guide.

Efficient staff, large and clean cable cars. Great signage around to find the cable car. Very reasonable price.

Mr. Jefri was very knowledgeable, friendly and a great driver. Highly recommended.
