From Kuala Lumpur: White-Water River Rafting Day Adventure Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer, 12/30/2015

A tour focused on the main interesting points of KL.

Although it didn't comprised all the visits written in your offer (for example, the visit to the "batik" factory) there were 3 hours full of pictures and information.
