    This was the best money spent in KL! Amazing tour, a full day with the best tour guide Chen! I did not have much time in KL (just a long weekend), so wanted to see all the sights in a short period of time. We ticked off everything I wanted to see, and Chen was so knowledgeable in facts about KL and the places we visited. He was also very patient in getting the best photos, and would go the extra mile in getting them. He will tell you the exact angles that will look best, and it was so worth it coming back with amazing photos from the Batu Caves and Petronas towers! I highly recommend this tour, Ben and Chen to anyone tight on time but wanting to see everything. I left KL feeling that I've really ticked off everything I wanted to, thanks to them!
