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.

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.

Really great tour, Charles the guide was extremely knowledgable and fun, with great stories and energy. The food was delicious and we got to try a range of options, and if we wanted to a bit extra, it was no bother. All the stops were at real local places and their character added to the experience. Great value for money and would recommend to anyone...

Bloody loved it! Guide was most accommodating and we checked out places I'd probably never stumble across. Fully recommend it to anyone who would like to check out KL inner city street food. 10.5 stars.

The tour was lots of fun and very informative. Our guide, Charles, gave us background information on the people, culture and history of KL. The food was delicious and the company fun. I recommend this tour for those who are a bit unsure of what to eat and where.
