    My 6 hour tour with Ying was terrific. I wanted to see Singapore through the eyes of a local and to see some tourist spots but also some things off the beaten path. Before we ever travelled together, she reached out through WhatsApp and helped personalize the tour based on some of my wishes as well as her own knowledge of what she thought I might enjoy. We spent the day walking (16K steps!) and riding on the bus through the city, enjoying tea together and she shared knowledge about the food and much about Chinatown in addition to other parts of the city. She was patient and fun. While her English was flawless, her Chinese language skills also helped me when navigating some souvenir buying in Chinatown. Despite the 30 year age difference between us, I felt like I was traveling through the city with a close friend. She was warm and helpful, suggesting some delicious fresh sugarcane juice as well as several local dishes to try. I took tons of photos and she took several herself and sent them to me through WhatsApp. Truly cannot say enough about the value of this tour for me. So grateful I reached out to try a personal tour experience like this, a first for me. Ying made it a truly special day that I will remember fondly.

    Was expensive but good way to get around Singapore. Get a slight discount if you book also with the tickets Garden by the Bay. Only slight grumble as the stops aren't sign posted, have to download the app.

    Kenny gave us an excellent tour of Singapore. He is knowledgeable and not only gives you info about what you see on tour but is also prepared and takes advantage of the short commuting time to give general info on Singapore. His experience on the tour he gave is obvious and the result was understandably excellent. Overall, Kenny was, among the 5 in total WithLocals guides we used at our SE Asia trip, the most professional and well prepared. Local snack, provided in the tour was nice but just a small bite, but Kenny was kind enough to pay for another treat, as we did not carry local money and we had a second snack at a nice place, though one of the few I guess in Singapore did not accept credit cards.

    This tour was amazing from start to finish. Our tour guide, Aulia yes was fantastic! We were picked up at our hotel at 5 AM and driven to an airport just across the border in Malaysia. Getting through the customs checkpoint was easy. Once in the airport, Aulia got us breakfast and coffee at one of the airport restaurants. We then boarded the plane for a quick one hour flight to an airport just outside Kuala Lumpur. We were met there by another driver, who took us to the Batu Caves. We spent about 45 minutes there and then were off to our next stop, which was the royal palace. We made a few more stops along the way and then went to the KL tower where we had lunch at the revolving restaurant on top. The lunch was delicious. Our last stop was the Petronas twin towers where we went to the bridge and the observation deck on the 86th floor. we were then taken back to the airport and we flew back. During the entire tour, Aulia made sure we had everything we needed. We got some great pictures and videos along the way.

    The walking tour was fantastic! We'd recommend it for anyone visiting Singapore or that would like to learn more about the history and cultures of Singapore. We learned a lot and were able to explore pieces of the city we may have missed on our own. Our guide was engaging, invested in the city and the tour, and was happy to answer all of our questions.

    Dian is the greatest guide I ever knew! She is so friendly, has a lot of knowledge, and super patience! She brings us to go to all historical places! We got local lunch on hotel buffet that was really good! I thought I can’t eat some of Malay food but turned out that all the food was amazing! The river cruise also a must thing to do! So relax and can see the history of old malacca.

    Would recommend!!

    We arranged this tour directly on the website. Aulia was a wonderful guide who was very accommodating, considerate, and knowledgeable. The tour was a fantastic opportunity to see a lot of KL in a short amount of time. The flight is comparable to a Southwest Airlines flight in the US, and the regional airport is extremely lovely. Given how hot it was outside, the van's air conditioning made for a really comfortable ride. We had plenty of toilet breaks and water in the van. The only money we paid was on items we bought at the mall; everything else, including meals and admission fees, was free. The meals were excellent (we had a buffet lunch at the KL Tower and breakfast and dinner at airport restaurants with both western and more traditional options).

    Our trip was personalised by our tour guide David. He was flexible in his timings based on what we liked to explore and preferred to do. He told many stories and had many ideas shared with us too. He made the trip enjoyable with his anecdotes. :)

    The back end staff who helped liaised and arranged the admin and confirmation tickets via whatsapp were also very patient in explaining too. As a first timer, I was abit lost and worried so had to find ways to get information from them to understand clearly but in the end, all still settled. Thank u

    Lewis was our guide and he was excellent. Great tuition to get you started. We travelled 12 kms and saw lots of areas around Marina Bay. Even got to ride on the Grand Prix track. I wouldn’t recommend though if you’ve got bad knees.

    Part of my bias is likely due to the rain. It was a good tour, but obviously some of the out door stuff was a bit problematic. So be careful of this during the rainy season. Lunch was delicious and the massage was great, as was out tour guide. I’d recommend giving it a try if you’re looking for a day away from Singapore.

    Mr. Danny was the best guide I ever had: extremely well-informed and cordial. He even took many photos of me in front of relevant Singapore sites and then sent them to me. I strongly recommend Mr. Danny as you guide. Best regards, Adolfo Profumo

    The tour of Kuala Lumpur was wonderful! Ms.Kong was knowledgeable, engaging, and informative. Bryan was a safe and accommodating driver. Our kids/teens really enjoyed the sightseeing and the eateries where we had lunch and dinner. We were able to tailor the itinerary to tailor our needs and interests. Our family is glad we spent more time at Royal Selangor and the Petronas Twin Towers. Kuala Lumpur is an amazing city and we’re happy we got to visit. It was worth the drive. Thank you!

    We have seen most of the places online but when we got to the trip we were happy to learn lots of info and history about the places. Our guide Darius was very knowledgeable and he also knew how to take very cool photos in each place. We recommend this trip if you are in Singapore, without this tour you may feel like you are missing out.
