We went on this tour in February this year and it was the highlight of our trip in KL. Gabby was an exceptional guide/host with a hive of local knowledge and very entertaining. This is a fabulous tour taking in the Indian and Chinese quarter of KL. The day was brilliant which overran by a few hours due to the wonderful banter and information from the very special Gabby, but no one cared as we were all having such a fantastic time. This tour I cant highly recommend enough, the food is plentiful and delicious with the aromas of the restaurants divine. Don't have a large breakfast before embarking on this tour but do enjoy a brilliant day out in KL.

Excellent guides and lots of fun and laughs. We were only sorry we had to duck off the last part through China Town to check out of our hotel and make it to the airport. We have told lots of our friends about the great tour.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

A great tour with a very friendly, funny and warm tour guide Charles. Slightly off the beaten track with some great choices of food and drink. Don't eat a meal too close to the tour as you are given more than enough to eat along the way!!!

Highly recommend the tour even if you normally eat at small stalls and like to eat like a local. You will not be disappointed.
