We were very happy with our tour guide, and the things we did get to experience. The waterfalls were amazing and refreshing after the short walk, the hot springs wow, very hot!
Unfortunately our guide contacted us to inform us that the Batu Caves was not recommended as there had just been a festival and that we shouldn’t have been able to book it. So we missed out on the experience of Batu Caves and private tour and seeing all that cake with that.
We asked for some money back as it cost us $142.50AU each and that is a lot of money. We felt we should’ve been offered some money back. So instead of a 4 hour tour it was 2.5 hours. Very disappointed

We found out about Withlocals from Google and downloaded the app. As we scrolled thru the app Brendon was one of the guides that impressed us. So we reached out to him for a customized tour and he came back to us with a 2 day itinerary.

On our first day we explored the city and visited various places ranging from places of worhsip, historical sites, some local street art and ended off in a wonderful rooftop bar.

As for our second day we did some travelling, visiting the fame Batu Caves and waterfall. And we later travelled about an hour to Kuala Selangor too see the monkeys and fireflies. This i have to thank Brendon for his suggestion as we would have booked the basic Batu Caves tour and missed out on the rest. During the tour he took us for dinner by a river and the food choices he made I have to say made us eat more than what we should be eating. Its was so delicious my husband reordered 2 dishes.

I cant thank Brendon enough as he made our tour the highlight of our holiday in Malaysia. And he also gave us suggestions on things to do while we continued our holiday in Langkawi.

If you are travelling to Malaysia do look him up and i am sure you will have a pleasant experience like we did

We had a fantastic and informative tour with Hoopy as our guide, she is bright bubbly and full of interesting facts. We went to Batu Caves, hot springs and waterfalls and at no time did we ever feel rushed and that we were on a time limit. Highly recommend Hoopy as it felt like you were sightseeing with a friend not a tour guide, you're a great host.

The tour was definitely worth every penny. Our tour guide, Paul, was extremely helpful and knowledgable, not only about the tour, which has given us much more insight to our stay in Kuala Lumpur and a few more must-do’s added to the list before we leave.
The tour does require a certain level of fitness as there is quite a lot of walking and steps!
The waterfalls are absolutely stunning and ‘off the beaten track’ not your average sight see and away from the busy tourist attractions.
The only thing that could be improved is that we were unable to contact the tour company by phone as they don’t accept phone calls - so just ensure if you need to confirm anything before the day, to do this in good time as they take a little while to reply by email.
Other than that a really great trip and thank you Paul for making this so brilliant!

Adnan was a wonderful guide because he was knowledgeable, kind and fun. He gave me time to enjoy and take in each stop of the tour and was very willing to stop at additional points along the way. I really appreciated his timeliness, all of the information he shared and the laughs along the way.

Joel was our guide and he was fabulous, easy to chat to and
knowledgeable . The caves were amazing as were the waterfalls, we felt
unrushed and completely relaxed with a lovely dip in the waterfalls to
cool down. Trip is a must do when in KL and would highly recommend you
choose Joel as your guide.

This tour was one of the highlights of our holiday. Paul, our local guide, was
faultless and so knowledgable. Absolutely amazing tour with so much local information. Did not feel rushed, excellent tour of Batu caves, hot springs and
waterfalls. Can't wait to return to Malaysia to do more tours of
other places mentioned. Keep in touch Paul. Many thanks, Raj

We booked this trip while we were on holiday in Thailand and so glad we did before we arrived in KL. Joll picked us up from our hotel he was punctual and brilliant from the minute we started the tour he had so much knowledge and was so helpful and kind. Everything he took us to see he knew the history which made it so enjoyable and interesting. He had great passion for the environment around KL the nature and wildlife and we appreciated all of the authenticity of the tour. We also had some delicious food that Joll organised for us to try. It was just brilliant and a perfect day. Thank you from all of us. We all recommend Joll as a genuine first class guide. Derek Carole Nigel Gill John Josey

First time to KL. Not really sure what to expect so booked a tour with ‘WithLocals’ as I have found from touring other countries, it is the best way to see what the city has to offer.
I wasn’t disappointed. Hoopy our tour guide was brilliant. She has so much energy and knowledge. Having been on countless other tours she went above and beyond with so much more than what we paid for.
She has left a wonderful memory for my family to take Home back to Australia and that is all I wanted
Thank you ‘WithLocals’ and thank you Hoopy

I enjoy history and learning about different cultures and Ramesh was
the perfect local to see the Batu Caves with. He used to work there
and so offered a lot of insight into the history and folklore
surrounding the caves. I loved his telling of some of the Hindu
legends regarding the caves and their exhibits. After the caves, we
checked out some hot springs that were too hot for me but it was
interesting to see the pools and test the water. The waterfalls were
last and they were just stunning. I even got to cool off in them.
Ramesh is full of local knowledge and a great conversationalist. I
would definitely book him again the next time I'm in Malaysia!
