Batu Caves and Petronas Towers was very good, but the tour per se was not up to our expectations: we missed some historical sites. The presidential palace and the National Mosque are impressive buildings, but there are mosques and old buildings like the old railway station that have a heritage value but were not part of the of the tour, and visiting two retail outlets was not that exciting. The tour guide was excellent though, but paying USD 290 for such a tour was too much for a couple with a child.
Ganesh, our guide on this tour, was excellent. He bottles of water and bananas for us , which was a nice touch. His manner was very easy going, which meant that we did not have the feeling he was rushing us. He answered all our questions with great sensitivity and knowledge. He even thought that we were very fit because we managed to reach the second temple within the Batu Caves. This was a nice touch as we are not spring chickens but do keep ourselves relatively fit. A very comprehensive tour of Kuala Lumpur, which finished with the iconic PETRONAS Towers Observation Deck.
Great day out full value as driver was knowledgable and the tour included all the major sights of Kuala Lumpur. Well worth the saving in time skipping the lines at the Petronas Towers. A lot of walking though!
This morning tour was nearly a full day and the time flew by. Our guide Vikram was very informative and kept a good time schedule with enough time at each place without feeling rushed. The Petronas Towers observation deck was the main highlight but the Batu Caves was interesting and definitely worth the visit. The additional places like the kings palace, Chinese temple, national mosque and old colonial buildings which were extras based on our expectations were a treat and added to the day.
Amazing private tour that lasted almost 8 hours, including all the famous sites in KL. Our driver and tour guide Vikram was very kind, talkative and helpful. Time flew and we had a lot of fun! Definitely recommended, especially if you only have a few days to visit. Along with the Royal Palace and Merdeka square, the high points were the visit to the Petronas Towers and to Batu caves. Worth every penny, brilliant tour!
