Meet your guide at the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station in the morning or afternoon, then embark on a private tour of the capital. This comprehensive look includes an eclectic sightseeing itinerary that can be customized according to your preferences.

After a look at the Moorish-style station, head to the National Mosque (Masjid Negara) for an introduction to the cultural diversity of the city, including Malay, Chinese, and Indian communities. Then continue on to glimpse the heritage buildings such as KL City Gallery around Merdeka Square (Dataran Merdeka) and learn how Malaysia declared its independence.

You have lunch at a local restaurant where your guide can recommend a fragrant rice dish such as nasi lemak, cooked in coconut milk (own expense).

Next, grab a taxi or Uber to the KL Forest Eco Park where you reach the Canopy Walk in a few minutes — admission included. Finally, take another ride to your last stop, the Petronas Twin Towers, for fantastic photo ops.

Our tour guide Brendon was great! I highly recommend him. He knew everything we asked about the city and took us to every place we wanted to go. The heat made us a little sick so he took us all over by car. He taught us about local customs and took us shopping, we didn't have a single worry or care and enjoyed every minute. He spoke several languages and could ask questions for us. We asked to go to some temples that were not on the itinerary and he took us no questions asked. We got to eat local food and ate red bean ice cream! Our phones were not working properly so he kindly took photos for us and sent them to us afterward. He was amazing! It was like meeting with an old friend. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Kuala Lumpur and I would recommend it to anyone.

Not worth the money

Discover the Best Local Food Tour by Night in Kuala Lumpur | Feb 2020
After we met the guide we went to a food court in a mall where we had first meal. Then we walked along one street with food and finally we to an Indian restaurant where we had just a dessert. The tasting was always just a small piece of food. Nothing special. We learned bits of information but not much. We were not able to taste typical dish which you read about in travel guides. If you go directly to Jalan Alor without a guide you do no mistake and can taste by yourself selecting from menu knowing names of food from travel guide books. It was not worth the money at all.

Excellent Tour

Private Half-Day Batu Caves Waterfalls and Hot Springs Tour | Jan 2020
Excellent knowledge tour & service provided by out guide Hoopy. The great thing about a private tour is the ability to choose an earlier start time to fit your itinerary & never rushed.. We choose a 08:30 start to avoid the busy crowds at the Batu Caves. Great to see the steps & the caves with minimal people in them. As we were leaving the crowds began to come as the big tour buses arrived. Took my parents who were in their 70’s & they had no problems with the steps & everything was done at our own pace, so never rushed. We had plenty of time to see all sights & our guide took & sent pictures to us afterwards. Would highly recommend.

Champ was a great tour guide and started well by being on time. His local knowledge was very informative and easy to understand. Going to Batu Caves early was a good idea as it was getting busy by the time we finished. Definitely recommend the private tour as it was a great way to get around rather than a bus tour.

Poor tour

Private Half-Day: The Ultimate Kuala Lumpur Food Tour | Oct 2019
This tour was much below our expectations. We did have four tastes of delicious local foods but we had put our dietary requirements which the tour guide had mentioned she wasn’t aware of till the last minute. We walked for very long distances in empty areas for long periods of time to reach other areas to taste the food. The guide was nice and friendly however the tour was certainly not worth what we paid and was of poor quality. I only say this for either the guide to uplift her tour or/ and for people to be aware of what they are getting into.

Discover the Best Local Food Tour by Night in Kuala Lumpur | Jul 2019
We were met by staff on given time and place. He welcomed us, walked us to food street which was very close and busy area. He asked as what is our expectation from tour and we told him to learn about local food. But we found out that most of restaurants were selling Chinese food. few were local as well. We didn't enjoy the tour as the knowledge shared with us was about food presentation and eating cultures while our intention was to learn how Malay people prepare their food mainly how they cook. We were not taken to any kitchen where cooking could be seen closely. The tour guide also told us that we selected the wrong tout but actually this tour is supposed to be about Malay food as the name says. The worst part was that tour started at 6pm and finished at 7.20 while it was supposed to be two hours. We were offered to taste three samples from street vendors. I booked the tour with two children 11 and 15. Not enjoyed at all. Not recommended if you want to learn about Malaysian food.
