Full description
You made it to Kuala Lumpur... but where do you start? Here's a solution for you: join an awesome local and let them introduce you to their city. Kickstart your trip with all the right information, local insights, tips and tricks and with a glimpse on how the locals enjoy their time in the city. You’ll also visit the must-see historical spots of the city as well as hidden places to make your kickstart tour a complete experience. Go to the famous Merdeka Square, Kuala Lumpur's best known landmark, where your private local host will tell you all about the Sultan Abdul Samad ​building and the Mud Theatre - two landmarks you shouldn't miss. Kuala Lumpur is a melting pot of cultures - Malay, Chinese, Indian and Muslim people live here in harmony and you will feel the multicultural vibe as soon as you set foot in the city. During this experience, you'll have a chance to learn about all these different cultures by visiting important gathering places for each of them like the oldest Chinese temple in the city, Sin ​Sze ​Si ​Ya ​Temple. Also on the route will be Sri ​Mahamariamman ​Temple, an impressive Hindu temple, and Masjid ​Jamek, the oldest Islamic place of worship in Kuala Lumpur. Main highlights? Check. Hidden gems? Check. Local insights? Check...now food. Kuala Lumpur is all about food and with a local by your side to help you find your next favorite dish, this experience will keep getting better and better. As a bonus, a tasting of potong ice cream will be included on the tour. This intro tour will also show you how to move around the city and where to find the best markets for unique gifts to bring back home. From Petaling Street, located in the neighborhood that never sleeps - Chinatown, to the Central Market. At the end, you'll know how to bargain like a local. This whole experience can be personalized to your preferences and what you would like to learn and know about Kuala Lumpur.

guided tour of KL

We met the guide at the time and location given. The guide was very knowledgeable of the area. Because the weather was extremely hot, we were unable to see more of KL. We enjoyed the tour, and ended with a local icecream testing session. Thanks
