Highly recommend this tour. Farah our guide was the best, her food and cultural knowledge amazing, she was hilarious and we had a lot fun!!
Good instructions for the meeting place, lots and lots of food and drinks. Anything we liked Farah would order more. Detailed explanations of what we were eating. We drove in Farahs car to 3 significant local food eateries and then she drove us back to out Hotel.
A must do if you're in KL

Wow! Probably the best money I've ever spent on a tour. Charlie, our guide, was so enthusiastic about the food, history and cultures of Malaysia. He showed us three different areas of Kuala Lumpur while taking us to three eating places and then through a street food market while having us taste samples of noodles and fruit. He then drove us to our respective hotels as the metro was closing. This is a must do for visitors of KL and I hope you have Charlie as a guide. You won't regret your decision!

Good to get out into the suburbs and be taken to three different eating places to experience Malay, Chinese then Indian food. Ken was an enthusiastic guide and the conversation was stimulating. Gave piece of mind to try new dishes. A great night.

Our guide Charlie was amazing! I would highly recommend this tour, we discovered hidden gems we would never have found on our own. The food was fantastic. Malay curries are the best!

What can I say that hasn't already been said? Gerry and Jo were phenomenal hosts! Our group was small and the setting was intimate. It really felt like Gerry and Jo were long time friends who happened to take us out and show us where the locals hang out and eat. It was such an amazing experience! Highly recommended! This food tour is not to miss!

This tour was a gastronomic and really fun experience from beginning to end. Our tour guide Ken was fantastic, with excellent local knowledge and a lovely sense of humour. We visited three food markets - open air Malay and Chinese, and an Indian restaurant. The food and local drinks were divine fragrant goat stew, melt in the mouth skewers of marinated chicken and beef with satay sauce, delicious coconut rice with boiled egg, crunchy peanuts, and spicy sauce wrapped in a banana leaf, local vegetables cooked in scrumptious spices, melt in the mouth banana coconut pancake, spicy dips with roti, and much more! Not only was the food amazing, but the opportunity to eat with the locals in the atmosphere, colour, and buzz of the food markets was a delight in itself. Plus, learning how and what to eat set us up beautifully to enjoy the local cuisine for the rest of our stay in Kuala Lumpar. Being dropped off at our hotel after the tour was much appreciated. Don't miss this!

What a full stomach tour. The guide has taken us to taste the local delicacy of KL the local way. We were 2 traveller al together, if not join the tour, we wouldn't be able to taste all those local food Chinese, Malay, Indian dish all in one night. The tour offer a pick up and drop off service, so we didn't need to walk too much.

We really enjoyed the tour. We sampled local food we would never have tried otherwise. Charlie did a great job in taking us around and pointing out different things as we went round four different markets. Well worth it

What a wonderful evening with Fala, our food guide, as well as Geraldine and Lois from NZ! Sampled the 3 different main types of cuisine around KL and was given the background and history of Malaysia - had a great laugh, soaked up the atmosphere, ate and drunk lots of different things we wouldn't probably have had the nerve to try on our own - it gave us the confidence to try some other dishes later on. We would thoroughly recommend this trip as a good way to experience Street food.

I would recommend this to anyone interested in all things foodie - we would never have sampled any of the fantastic food without the guidance of the fabulous Charlie. For anyone wondering we ate everything and weren't even the slightest bit sick afterwards so go for it!

Great food and very authentic places. Charles took us in his very comfy van to the different areas. It was a great choice to do a night tour as the temperature was much nicer to go from one place to another and eat outside in the street. Highly recommend it.

A must for all visiting Malaysia! Our tour guide Charles was amazing! He took us to some great places, was accommodating, friendly and informative. There were 2 other couples on our tour was an ideal number. Managed to go to a night market as well which was on my list of must do and #39;s! Recommend to all!

Charles was a great guy and very knowledgable! Love all the local haunts that we went to and the market was an eye opening experience.
There was no shortage of food and by the end we were full to the brim.
Fabulous way to start our holiday.

Best tour I did in KL..Farrah was a fantastic guide. She took us to 3 main restaurants plus a food stand. Farrah is very passionate about her work and taught us so much about Malaysian cuisine and traditions. I really recommend this tour!

Charles by far provided us with the best experience in Malaysia. From the moment he picked us out of the crowd as the tourist that he would be escorting around to the moment he graciously dropped us off at our hotel instead of the meeting place like we thought. He provided us with the opportunity to taste the culture of Malaysia. I thought as a vegetarian, my experience would be slighted, but he took care to include dishes that I could partake in. He was kind, funny and we felt safe. In addition to being a vegetarian we had our toddler with us who was in a mood. She was being rather unfriendly and if I were the tour guide I would have ignored her. Instead, it appeared that Charles made it his mission to win her over which he did by the end of the night. We enjoyed the food, was never forced to eat or try anything and the food was plentiful. We were forced to wave the white flag as Charles was prepared to keep the food rolling in. We sampled fish head curry, nasi lemak, roti, satay, fried chicken and fried ice cream just to name a few of the dishes. It was truly an experience to remember.

The food was outstanding, and Charles was a delight. Despite it being a rainy night, we had an excellent time visiting various food malls, and even a walk through little India as that community prepared for Deepavali. Highly, highly recommended!!
