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
We were picked up at the perfect time by our driver and guide Nantha. Everything was better than expected and we had a great time. It was like visiting the city with a friend and we got a lot of information about the beautiful places we were braught to. We can only recomand this tour by heart. He was speaking English perfectly and had also a good sence of humour. One of the best guides, we ever had!
We enjoyed our trip. Smooth pick-up and drop-off (driver agreed to drop us off at a slightly different place, which was good for us). Plenty of time at the caves. Driver was friendly local and shared her knowledge of local life, this was very interesting. If you'd like to save time, you could probably skip the factory visits, those were not as fascinating (and ended with an option to purchase goods).
Had a lovely time. Shan our tour guide was very helpful and really made the experience a great one.
Very good experience. Our guide (Gana) was amazing. Also, the site is very beautiful.
