we had a fantastic day, Rama our driver and guide was extremely knowledgeable. He share facts and history of Malaysia, and Kuala Lumpur. He made the journey between attractions interesting. The weather was stormy in the morning, therefore our days schedule was changed to accommodate. We went to all the attractions by the end of the day. Really good value foe money and an enjoyable insight into Kuala Lumpur. the vehicle was comfortable, and Rama was prompt with pickup, and keeping us on track for the whole day. We never felt rushed due to the good planning of Rama. We would recommend this tour for everyone.
