      Highlights of KL
      Manjeet was a fantastic guide. She shared tons of information and made certain I tasted some Malay food. She gave me plenty of facts and historical background for every place we visited. Manjeet really tailored the tour to my preferences. She went out of her way to show me Kampong Bharu. Her English is excellent. I would definitely take another tour with such a pleasant and knowledgeable guide. A really enjoyable time.

      Do you own tour and you will be happier!
      The value to quality & quantity is not worth the price. We had reasonable expectations to at least not be hungry at the end was not met. She tried and I understand my wife has a prawn/shrimp allergy so the options were reduced. Simply a bit of homework on where the big or unique Food Markets are would have sufficed and we would not have left feeling unfulfilled. Plus the tour was only the 2 of us and the guide so we did not blow the budget.

      Tasty Indian, Malay, and Chinese Bites
      Sadly, Siddoz fell ill and couldn’t show us around. He did offer a replacement in Fareez or postpone for a different day. We went with Fareez and had a great time. He showed off Chinese, Malay, and Indian foods. We enjoyed all the bites and appreciated his wit and charm. He offered us a bonus Malaysian hamburger which was unexpected and tasty. We had a great time!

      This local guide is the true hidden gem
      Manjeet is the true hidden gem. Our family booked Manjeet for a walking tour of KL that we hoped was something beyond the average tourist traps. We’re a family of four full time travelers who have been to Europe, Southeast Asia, Central America, North America, and other points around the globe. We’re not typically the type of family who immediately head to the nearest tourist super hotspot. We look instead for those off the beaten path destinations. The spots where the hidden meaning and the connection to the culture is hard to find but worth the effort. Manjeet surpassed our expectations. We walked away from our day with this lovely lady having been given a window into a few worlds we very likely would never have seen without her help. She has a wonderful and comfortable wisdom that she readily shared with her guests. I often say it’s a shame to have the experience but to miss the meaning. Manjeet gave the entire day meaning. We could not recommend her more strongly.

      Fabulous KL guided tour with Reka
      If you’re looking for a fantastic trip, look no further than Reka! She is such a lovely lady - experienced, knowledgeable, kind and friendly. We had a brilliant day in KL with Reka, who couldn’t have been any better in any way. She showed us the sights, was really fun and even bought us some lovely local food for lunch. Pick Reka as your guide and you definitely won’t be disappointed. Thank you Reka - we had an amazing day with you and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. x 😊 x

      A great way to experience this lovely city
      Brendan met us promptly at our agreed time and we set off on our first visit to KL hoping to hear all about the local history and culture. We were not disappointed and over the 4 hours of our tour Brendan showed us all the must see places interspersing with stories about life in Malaysia and the ways of life including how to navigate the roads (just cross where you can ! ) and what to eat - for Brendan it’s quantity over quality ;). He adapted the tour to meet our requirements and helped me to navigate the Grab app which is similar to Uber. He showed us some secret locations and where to get the best photos of Petronas Towers. Thanks Brendan we had a great day and hope to come back to KL soon.

      So glad we chose this tour!
      Our guide, manjeet, was excellent. Very friendly and informative. The pre-tour contact to find out our particular areas of interest was a very nice touch. A really enjoyable walk and experience in the historical centre of the city. There are plenty of kl tours available but so pleased we chose this one - highly recommended!

      Local Street Food
      Did the evening street foods walk with Ramesh. We were hurrying to avoid the rain as there was an impending downpour due. Ramesh was a good guide, insisted we eat local food where only the locals would go - we tried Malay, Chinese and Indian dishes. Good fun and were just inside the last Indian cafe when the rain started.

      Great Tour, Excellent Guide
      We spent an excellent 4 hours walking KL with Manjeet as our guide. She helped explain the history of the city, how its various communities interact and the importance of religion to all its citizens. It was very informative and interactive and Manjeet was excellent in her role. Really recommended if you want to get a good understanding of the city and its history and how to navigate it. We also had some Masala Chai tea at a local cafe and some cakes later at another venue.

      Best sightseeing ever
      The sightseeing tour in Kuala Lumpur with Manjeet was an exceptionally beautiful experience. We learned a lot, truly a great deal, about the country and its religion, the history of Kuala Lumpur, and also about contemporary life. Time flew by, filled with an invitation for tea at an authentic restaurant and indulging in fruits at a market. I highly recommend Manjeet - a woman with a lot of charisma and knowledge, who clearly does her job with passion.

      Wonderful day in KL
      My husband and I only had two days in KL and wanted to make the most of it. Joel came up with the perfect itinerary for us that included Batu Caves, a beautiful waterfall, a temple, and a short walking tour. He was very friendly and informative. We realized we definitely needed more time to see all that the city has to offer but this tour was perfect for us to get an overview in the short amount of time that we had.

    This tour is definitely weather dependent. Unfortunately I experienced a significant downpour during my tour which limited the walking required. The guide suggested abandoning the tour after an hour, but did not suggest a partial refund. I was not impressed. My estimate is that I enjoyed food priced at about 15 percent of the fee paid. That's a hefty profit margin.

    It is a nice 2 hours (not 3 hours) walk in China town. Although we paid for 2 people, we were given one portion to share in each place and we had to even cut small deserts by two to try it (I think it was a good saving on us). We went to Indian place, then tried noodles in the market, then tried bacon, 2 fruits and soya desert. On the way, we were also offered an ice cream (was supposed to be shared again with my 15 yo son, but I asked to have two separate). Overall, I think the trip is interesting but overpriced for what it offers, I had to eat when I was back home.

    Siddoz clearly has a reputation of the top tour guide in Kuala Lumpur for food, tastings, and this tour
    lived up to the hype. Great communication, easy to find the location to meet. we had our two-year-old with us which complicated the plans but our tour guides were thoughtful enough to pick places that would work for her and adjust a tour as needed. Worked extra to make sure we tasted the best Assam Laksa in Kuala Lumpur just the nick of time before they close. Would recommend any first time Kuala Lumpur visitors.

    We did a tour with Povan and it was a highlight of our time in Kuala Lumpur. He was very patient and understanding when an afternoon thunderstorm made us late for our start time, and we still managed to get all of our samples without feeling rushed. He was a wealth of knowledge and we learned so much from him! He was also great about navigating the food preferences in our group. The food was fantastic and it was fun to eat so many varieties of food that we were eager to try.

    Multicultural food tour with May
    Last month the family made a trip to Kuala Lumpur and were lucky enough to join May for an afternoon of culinary delights and discovery of her wonderful city.
    Very easy to deal with May was on the ball with WhatsApp for communication and organisation.
    No sooner did we get off the Grab in Chinatown and she had spotted us and off we went wandering the streets. I have no idea how many dishes we tried but the experience was above expectation. Between sitting down in a Mamak and chatting to customers to finger food served in these streets for generations there was something for the whole family. May was very engaging with everyone in our little group and did a wonderful job finding vegetarian options for our kids. The tour was also full of history and hidden gems that really made it one of the highlights of our stay in Malaysia. Thank you May.

    My wife and I came to Kuala Lumpur for two nights. Nadia is an
    exceptional food tour guide and she made our tour very enjoyable. She
    took us around many local restaurants and areas in central Kuala
    Lumpur and she customized the tour to our liking and tastes. She
    emanates positive energy and has a very genuine character. You will
    never go wrong with Nadia!

    TK is so knowledgeable, he walked us through the history of the food vendors and what we were eating, altered the tour for our dietary requirements (I’m vegetarian and my husband isn’t) and took us to the best food spots that we never would have found on our own. He was great at giving advice and recommendations for the rest of our stay in KL. Highly recommend!! Thanks for an awesome day TK 😊

    May is a friendly and approachable woman who gave us a fabulous experience. We had wandered through the same areas the day before but didn’t have the knowledge or confidence to sample the local food. However, with May, the experience was totally different. May’s expertise and enthusiasm were infectious. I would recommend a very light breakfast and then arrange to meet May around 11 am. She will guide you through the back lanes of Chinatown offering a variety of food which was all delicious. A tour not be missed.

    Our guide was Siddoz, the owner who gave us a great introduction to the city and it's cultural mix and history and of course the food. It's a gentle walk around Chinatown and little India sampling various cuisines with good explanations and you have the chance to really fill your stomach with loveliness. A fantastic way to pass a few hours with a lovely local.

    We are a family of 4 visiting KL for 3 nights and took the multicultural food tour with May on our first full day.\nMay was so lovely and provided us an amazing amount of food that we would never have tried without her. She was also excellent at explaining the cultural importance of the food. She included a visit to a Hindu temple and a Chinese temple as well as some time in the Central Market and tips on where else to visit making it an all round excellent introduction to KL.\nMay had obviously built up a great rapport with the local food vendors too.\nI would definitely recommend spending time with May on one of her tours.
