Charles was a great guy and very knowledgable! Love all the local haunts that we went to and the market was an eye opening experience.
There was no shortage of food and by the end we were full to the brim.
Fabulous way to start our holiday.

Best tour I did in KL..Farrah was a fantastic guide. She took us to 3 main restaurants plus a food stand. Farrah is very passionate about her work and taught us so much about Malaysian cuisine and traditions. I really recommend this tour!

Charles by far provided us with the best experience in Malaysia. From the moment he picked us out of the crowd as the tourist that he would be escorting around to the moment he graciously dropped us off at our hotel instead of the meeting place like we thought. He provided us with the opportunity to taste the culture of Malaysia. I thought as a vegetarian, my experience would be slighted, but he took care to include dishes that I could partake in. He was kind, funny and we felt safe. In addition to being a vegetarian we had our toddler with us who was in a mood. She was being rather unfriendly and if I were the tour guide I would have ignored her. Instead, it appeared that Charles made it his mission to win her over which he did by the end of the night. We enjoyed the food, was never forced to eat or try anything and the food was plentiful. We were forced to wave the white flag as Charles was prepared to keep the food rolling in. We sampled fish head curry, nasi lemak, roti, satay, fried chicken and fried ice cream just to name a few of the dishes. It was truly an experience to remember.

The food was outstanding, and Charles was a delight. Despite it being a rainy night, we had an excellent time visiting various food malls, and even a walk through little India as that community prepared for Deepavali. Highly, highly recommended!!

Excellent Tour! Our guide, Farrah, was very knowledgeable and I appreciated the extra service especially since I brought along my 3-year old son. We were stuffed after the tour and the food was super! Highly recommended!

Excellent value food tour of food from the three main ethnic groups in Malaysia - Malay, Chinese and Indian. Very much off the beaten track and all the better for it. We visited places and tasted foods which we would not have done otherwise. Farah was an excellent, informative and enthusiastic guide.

As an added bonus we were dropped off at out hotel back in central KL

This tour is a wonderful introduction to Malaysian food. Farah was our guide and she did a great job in telling us about the food and customs of the different ethnic meals we sampled.We began with a Malay meal at a popular Malay hawkers covered eating place. We tried food that we would never have considered tasting. It was delicious. From there by car to a semi covered popular Chinese eating place. A meal tasting a variety of their favourite dishes. Finally to a large And busy Indian hawkers eatery for a taste of their curries and naan bread. All the food was tasty. We loved this tour and would recommend it as a must-do.

Fantastic tour really enjoyed it. Our guide was very good she spoke very good English. We got to try lots of local food and drink and it made a change to get out of the Tourist area. Would recommend for any one visiting KL who love there food. If you like nice restaurants then this isn't for you.

This is a must do trip, it was superb. We were lucky to have Charles as our guide and Rubin drove us around in a spacious and very clean mini bus. Accompanied by two Australians and two Canadaians this was a very like minded group. They were great fun and contributed to the enjoyment level immensley. The tour was to finish at 10pm, we were still eating at 11.20pm. I think we would have still been at it now had it not been for a cruel rainstorm that interupted our enjoyment. To cap a perfect evening, Charles and Rubin dropped us all off at our hotel doors.

Great excursion. Charlie is a character and a great host. Just be aware the meeting point is out of KL Central, about 30mins by rail.

This was a really really cool experience. Our tour guide was AMAZING. I think his name was Charlie. We got to try the food the traditional local way. It was such an amazing experience. We enjoyed it very much.

What a fantastic tour. Sarah our guide was very informative and took us to a variety of food outlets sampling Malay, Chinese and Indian dishes. The night market was particularly good. Four guests was a great number to ensure an intimate tour and to hear all the information about the food. All in all this was a great tour especially in 'Rexy' the little green car. I would thoroughly recommend this to savour the variety of tastes and flavours of Malaysia. Good value for money, you certainly won't leave this hungry!

Our guides were easy to locate. They were keen to establish our tastes in food and challenged us to explore new dishes. We certainly were exposed to a variety of different dishes and certainly met the locals.
I would recommend it to any person visiting KL.

They started this tour early just for us as we were just passing through on trains and it was well worth it even though we had to cut it short. Great food variation, good guide - even threw in a whistle stop photo opportunity tour!! Definitely a must if you like eating at little local restaurants. The food is very cheap (but good) but you're paying a little money for a very good personal tour.

It was very difficult to get to meeting point none of the taxi drivers new where to go but when we got there it was FANTASTIC .Our guide was so entertaining and made sure we were comfortable at all times .I would not have normally eaten street food but felt very confident with our guide and the food was great. At the end of the evening we were dropped off at our hotel. Thanks Charles
