What You Can Expect
Next, you’ll see the National Monument, a sculpture that commemorates the Malaysians who died while fighting the Japanese occupation in World War II and in the Malayan Emergency. You'll also stop by the National Mosque and note its sleek and modern architecture, then contrast it to the blend of Eastern and Western design of the Old Railway Station. Your guide will share the history of these sites as you admire them from the outside. Your next stop will be the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre, where you'll see a elegant display of Malaysian pewter arts.
After a full morning of Kuala Lumpur sightseeing, relax and enjoy a traditional Malaysian lunch at a local restaurant. Once you're refreshed, head to the Brickfields, a colorful residential neighborhood that's known as Little India due to its many Indian residents and businesses.
Finally, you’ll drive to the craggy limestone mountain which holds the Batu Caves. An impressive golden statue of the Hindu deity Lord Murugan stands 140 feet (42.7 m) tall next to the 272 steps that lead to the caves. Your guide will take you through the cavernous rooms where you’ll find a Hindu shrine lined with colorful statues.
On your way back to Kuala Lumpur, stop at a Malaysian batik center to see how this popular textile art is made. Your city tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
If you are spending a limited time in KL, this is the tour for you. Edwin is a very engaging guide, he accommodates himself to your pace and interests, and is full of information about general topics about the city and life within it. It is a well constructed tour, each location building on the next. The museum visits sets you up for the rest of the day, little India is indeed very little it could be a drive by to be honest, and the Royal Selangor visit centre is a must. Thank you Edwin, a very enjoyable day.
Good to see both the modern and the old parts of KL and have a guide who went out of his way to tell us the history and development of the city. Enjoyed it very much and would recommend. And ... he suggested we went to China Town one evening for the experience, the shopping and the food - definately the best Chinese food weve tasted and great for people watching.
The local guide was amazing we were lucky enough to have the guide to ourselves so private tour it was.
His local knowledge and commentary was fanastic we had a wonderful day and would highly recommend to others.
We were picked up on the morning of our tour promptly. AND Private tour it was. Just the two of us with our guide Mr Lo.
He was so knowledgeable. It was great having a private tour as you can then go at your own pace.
We packed in so much on this tour. It was amazing.
We never would have seen half of the sights on our own and certainly would not have known the history behind different areas and buildings.
Can't recommend the private tour highly enough.
It's the best way to see the City all in one day.
Thanks Mr Lo.
This is the second Country I have booked trips with Viator for and can't fault any of the tours I have done.
Our recent holiday in KL was made even more enjoyable when we were shown the wonderful sights and sounds of the city by our very knowledgeable tour guide 'Bob'. Bob was a font of knowledge and gave an informative and at times very humorous commentary throughout our day long tour, simply the best, Thanks Bob!
