Excellent Tour. Our guide was very accommodating and even suggested an extra visit to the Royal Palace and took great photos of us. Doing the Batu caves early was a good move, so as to avoid the crowds, but we still managed to see all the monkeys as they descended for their morning food. Well planned tour with a great guide.

We had a very short visit to KL and wanted to make the most of it. Our guide, Patrick, did a great job of taking us to Batu Caves, Thean Hou Temple, the National Mosque, Merdeka Square and ending the tour at the Petronas Towers and KL City Center. We could never have seen so much in such a short time without this tour !
