I had an amazing tour which started at 8:30am and ended at just after 5pm. My Malay/Indian guide was so forthcoming with facts on points of interest and I really felt like I was being looked after. My tour was Christmas Day and I went to a Hindu Temple, Chinese Temple, Mosque and Church...a good rounding out of some different faiths for an important day in the Christian Calendar. A fantastic day from beginning to end for sure.

A very interesting tour and a must to do to see this City although it only kept us in the Golden Triangle where it is kept clean and tidy for the tourists as outside of this is a very dirty City! Very good guide who was very informative in what he showed us and gave us time to explore some of the places which included the Butterfly Farm and the National Mosque which was very interesting and serene. Pelling Street markets are a must to see and walk through, but you do get harassed a bit by some of the Vendors so be prepared and walk away as some of them are very good sellers. Central Markets were very good and no one hassles you here but prices are a little bit dearer.

Picked up at hotel in a minibus and thought we were being taken to the coach but ended up at the King's Palace and the driver only to turn around then and introduce himself and advise he was taking us around for the tour. We hadn't realized it was a private tour! We did not love the tour - we were taken to each of the key spots, told a bit about it and then left to take our own photos.. The biggest disappointment was when we were taken to a mosque and told we could go on a guided tour only for it to be closed for prayers - we felt our guide should have known the times the mosque was closed and known this wouldn't be possible for us..

A very 'average' tour. Found the Museum a waste of time - little to see in a dark and dingy exhibition area; could only walk around the main Mosque - it was a Friday morning (prayers day) fair enough; a look from the outside at the King's Palace; a drive past Chinatown etc etc. Seems like there's not much to see in K.L

This tour was a real disappointment. The guide was not well-informed. He omitted two tour highlights: the Sultan Abdul Samad Building and the National Mosque! According to the Viator Tour Website we should have visited these two buildings and taken pictures. We had just arrived in KL that morning from the US and instead of resting, decided to take the tour which - as it turned out - was a mistake!

We were disappointed for several reasons : 1/ the tour started 45' late because someone in the bus claimed his phone had been stolen, and after a while the guide wanted to go but could not make himself respected and did not manage to prevent that person lifting hands on the driver, so basically we were nt reassured when it started (without that person). 2/ he explanations and comments from the guide were extremely poor. 3/ we had to see two uninteresting places (shops) to start the tour, and were left with ridiculously too little time for the nicest part of the tour, the Independence Square, which was left as last (plus we did not see the Mosque).
So I would definitely not recommend this tour with this agency.

Terrible lazy tour Guide, took us to the museum, left us there to wonder around, not really knowing what we were looking at!! while he sat in the van. Took us to a palace, where you looked at the outside wall, a mosque...that you have to stand outside as only Muslims are permitted, a war memorial that he said looked like westerners and down to a dirty old river, which was bazaar. Would never have done the trip if wed known it was so dull.
