What people are saying about Selangor

Our Private instagram tour was outstanding. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in KL. Loved each spot we visited and had a very colorful instagram page after our visit. Janice was such a kind person to connect with. She took really good care of us in terms of food, special requests around stops, best coffee and the conversation was just amazing. We will definitely drop Janice a message when we are back in KL. Looking forward to exploring other places in south east Asia with GetYourGuide. Kudos to the entire team for creating an experience of a lifetime.

The host and driver was great. He did not participate in the activities, but gave very good insights about them. Pickup from my hotel was very timely.
