This tour was a great way to see what we wanted to see for our first trip to Kuala Lumpur. We wanted to spend a half day seeing religious sites. The tour was very flexible and accommodating, since we only wanted to go the Caves, the National Mosque, lunch and Central Market. We were traveling with 3 teenagers and 2 grade school kids with 2 families and this was more than enough for the kids. Make sure though you cross reference Hindu and Muslim religious holidays and festivals with your trip. We lucked out and nothing was going on. But the guide told us for one Hindu festival week, the Caves are jammed with worshipers. The tour guide was also very helpful. He did not come with us in the Caves or the Mosque. The Mosque has their own tour guides and the Caves really didn't need one. But I recommend you do research on the caves. Lunch was in a very local Indian restaurant. The food was great but if you or your kids are not very adventurous you might want to pack snacks
I ended up getting a private tour, which made getting around much easier. Tour guide was super considerate about allowing me to finish the food and try a lot of options. I was STUFFED by the end. I didn't eat dinner that night, and I didn't eat a whole lot the next day either. It's a lot of food. Enjoy! (We didn't go to Chow Kit, and other tours do. So just be aware of that.)
This is a great tour. It was the highlight of our time in Singapore. We traveled by local train to several neighborhoods that had Malay, Indian, Chinese, and other cuisines. We also went to a local market and learned about the various foods. The tour took us through local sights such as Merdeka Square and the River of Life.
Fun packed day with a very knowledgeable guide. Waterfall stop was beautiful, lovely refreshments at strawberry farm and breath taking views at BOH tea plantation. Nice lunch overlooking golf course fascinating watching Cameron Highlands ‘Micheal Jackson’s’ blow pipe demonstration!
Our tour guide was great! Treated us to some very special and local dishes that we would’ve never tried otherwise. You could tell he didn’t work on commission because we had to wait in line like everyone else! Very local Malay food tour.
