Kuala Lumpur International Airport Departure Transfer

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Prompt pick up (actually came early). There was only me in the car and the driver was friendly enough to have a small chat. For what I wanted which was to get to the airport without any hassles with taxi fares or dramas - this service is excellent. Will definitely do transfers like this again.

Penang Shared Arrival Transfer: Airport to Hotel

Penang, Malaysia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Was picked up by a friendly 'Moi' who is a local of Penang. Moi was very chatty and friendly and his English was excellent. I ended up not sharing the airport to hotel transfer and having it as a private transfer ! I would use this service again without a doubt.

Batu Caves and Temple Tour from Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I was on the KL city highlights morning tour where the tour guide said the tour company asked whether I was able to do the Batu Caves tour on the same day - I agreed knowing it was going to be a long day. This tour is good - I went on a day which was a public holiday so some of the places on the itinerary were replaced with other things by the tour guide. Our guide was great - very knowledgeable, almost to the extent of being TOO informative but it was great in hindsight. The caves itself are good - mind you that it is 272 steps in the heat or heat & sun. It took no more than 15 minutes for myself and another lady to go up the stairs (great way to work off the fab Malaysian food!!) Monkeys on the stairs are 'cute' but really a nuisance as you have to stay clear of them, not feed them, not touch them, not drink water in front of them, not touch your sunglasses in front of them! This tour was good - would recommend for others to do.

Historical Malacca Full-Day Tour from Kuala Lumpur including Lunch

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
As I had been on another tour booked on viator, this one was polar opposites to the other where on the other tour the guide was non stop info giver with excellent English whilst on this tour the guide only really spoke when asked and his level on English was not as good. It took approx 2.5 hours there and 2.5hours back. The town was nice to explore, Christ church was very touristy - reminded me of Patong - but the old village area was nice to see. Lunch was nothing to write home about. Was taken to a Chinese /Malay restaurant which seem to be the place for all tourist groups to eat. Drinks other than green tea were extra. There was white rice, Veg in plain sauce, prawns in a very spicy sauce, chicken in a mild curry sauce, sweet n sour fish and assorted fruit. I would have preferred to eat at some place of my choice which served the local food (chicken rice balls). Value for money? guide was pleasant and nice but not as informative as others I've had so considering I don't know how much it would have cost to get out there, I think the price might be a little steep. Also, other reviews have said this is a great one day trip for people here for a short time, I don't really agree. If you have been sitting on a 8-14 hour flight, the last thing I would want is to sit another 5-6 hours again depending on traffic!

Kuala Lumpur City Highlights Morning Tour

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review
Our tour guide was info overload - which was good and bad. Good: getting facts and loads of info Bad: it was literally non stop for 5-6 hours where it felt like a record player Pick up was on time. But I must mention that because our tour was on a public holiday, a few places were closed and we were taken to other locations. I was also asked to do a tour I had booked for two days later on the same day. If I had not been with a nice coach of people I would gave declined the offer. Tour was good - if you really learn about the KL go for it. If not, just catch the monorail and walk / explore yourself.

Kuala Lumpur International Airport Arrival Transfer

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
I had read many reviews about the issues with taxis in KL and I didn't want to be confronted with this issue once arriving to the airport. My driver was there with my name on a sign but not exactly wearing the colours as per the itinerary but that was no big issue. Driver was grumpy upon first greeting as my flight had been delayed so he had been waiting for close to 30-40 minutes. As I had booked 3 other tours, driver handed me a welcome pack with all the info of my pick up times, etc for those tours. All in all, driver's attitude was a bit rough but this booking got me from A to B with no hassles and I felt safe - which is all I needed.
