Kuala Lumpur City Highlights Tour

Perfect for first-time visitors, this three-hour tour provides a comprehensive introduction to Kuala Lumpur's famous sights, leaving you with a knowledgeable base for exploring the city at your leisure. Meet your local guide upon pickup from your city hotel in the morning or afternoon, and embark on your narrated tour by comfortable coach.

Head to multiple Kuala Lumpur attractions, making photo stops at the King's Palace — a symbol of Malaysian sovereignty — as well as Merdeka Square (aka Independence Square), which features a panorama of fascinating buildings in an array of architectural styles. Your guide offers informative commentary on the city’s growing skyline, whose ultra-modern structures tower above edifices with Indo-Moorish influence.

Gaze up at the Islamic geometric patterns on the 88-story Petronas Twin Towers, whose multifaceted walls and twin spires contain thousands of steel and glass panels.

Your journey continues with a visit to the National Museum to see historic Malaysian artifacts, from traditional weapons and costumes to modern arts and crafts and musical instruments.

Then, drive past the beautiful Lake Gardens on your way to view the National Monument, commemorating Malaysia's struggle for freedom during World War II. Nearby, admire the modern construction of the National Mosque and the pleasant combination of Eastern and Western architecture of the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station.

Visit the six-tiered Chinese landmark of Thean Hou Temple, a grand structure that combines modern architectural styles with authentic traditional design. At the Central Market, browse a variety of local crafts and perhaps have your portrait sketched if time permits.

The final stop on your sightseeing tour of Kuala Lumpur is the Royal Selangor Visitor Center, where you will gain insight into pewter-smithing and see innovative pewter-ware design. Afterward, re-board your coach and end with drop-off at your hotel.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Although we had been to Kuala Lumpur before, we decided to take this city highlights tour to get more acquainted with the city and its history. Could not have asked for more. It was a private tour with Michael, our driver, who was very informative and lovely to us and allowed us to dictate the time we took at each place. Would very much recommend anyone taking this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

We were fortunate in being the only couple on our tour; a guide and driver to ourselves. An early pick up and late drop off ensured great value for money. The visit to the Royal Selangor factory was very interesting with no hard sell in the retail shop. The subsequent tour took us to the Royal Palace, National war memorial and the National museum, all accompanied by detailed explanations from the guide. The tour provided a very good introduction to the history and development of Malaysia and KL and is well worth doing.
