    Great to see the real food of KL. Host was very friendly polite and knowledgeable.
    Recommend going on this hungry as quite a bit if food that we were struggling to get through towards the end and we did the “lighter” food tour.

    An absolute MUST if you're visiting Kuala Lumpur for the first time! Kingston and Das took me to three different spots, thoughtfully curated such that I get to try Chinese food, Indian food and Malaysian food at spots that are frequented by locals (I didn't see a single tourist at these spots, other than myself of course). You'll get to try numerous dishes throughout the few hours, so best to eat a bit of each and leave room for the next few stops. Through the wide variety of food, you really get a taste of the diversity that makes Malaysia unique.

    Along the way, you'll also get to visit landmark spots in KL, and at each place, Kingston shares pockets of Malaysian history and the importance of what you're seeing. Learned so much from this tour! And the best part of it is the passion that the guides have. You can really tell they love sharing knowledge about Malaysia and genuinely enjoying chatting with you. The cherry on top, of course, is that you get to ride a vespa throughout the city. Say what! Cute photos of you on the vespa are guaranteed to impress your instagram followers ;)

    Myself and my partner have high standards and expectations and this private local food tour did not disappoint and is a genuinely unforgettable experience. It introduced us to a range of ‘eateries’ some of which were ‘tucked-away’ historic small restaurants and hawker stalls as well taking-in culturally diverse temples and other fascinating sights.

    We had an amazing and charming personal guide called ‘TK’ who, during the tour, steered us through over 10 dishes which included Indian, Chinese, and Malay as well as frequently introducing us to the fascinating vendors – some of whom are very senior in age and sadly when some of them finally retire their business will end with them.

    This private tour (which was longer and more generous than the advertised 4 hours) took place at a time of our choosing and TK, who also handled the booking, was keen to understand our needs, likes and dislikes and following our original confirmation during booking of our dislike of monosodium glutamate (MSG) restructured the tour itinerary to suit us.

    We highly recommend this tour and actually want to do it again next time we visit Kuala Lumpur!

    Ten out of ten for this private tour and for ‘TK’.

    Make sure you take a big appetite with you on this food tour. Nadia took us to eat Malaysian, Indian and Chinese dishes in different parts of the city. She knows all the best places. We even tried durian for the first time. A great way to see the different cultures of this fascinating city.

    If you stumble across this review then you are very lucky, because you too now have the opportunity to join this tour.
    We traveled to KL as a family of four and wanted to do something different, we wanted to see the city through different eyes, and not part of a big touristy group. This ticked ever box.

    We were picked up at our hotel at 7pm by Michelle and Wesley from Golden Blossom Tours - their local knowledge is incredible but spontaneous and so not scripted. They drove us to ’Queens’ restaurant which is over 60 years old and is basically a street food hub where locals eat and have done forever. The food is cooked on carts surrounding the venue. Michelle ordered everything and it was DELICIOUS! The Sate’s and Pork Buns were the best we have ever eaten. We would normally be to scared to eat in a place like this, but honestly we just trusted them and never once felt nervous about trying everything.

    After dinner Wesley drove us through the city in the comfy van, he and Michelle pointed things out - big and small, told us funny stories, and treated us like old friends. We hopped in and out, taking photos and asking questions which tbdu had answers for every time.

    For supper we went to a traditional Malaysian Indian 24 hour cafe called Pelita. We all thought there was no way we could possibly eat anything but once again Michelle ordered for us and we finished the night of with traditional cold milky tea sweet Indian rotis and something that I can only describe as one of the most delicious things we've ever eaten a roti tissue. Now we were bursting but very happily so!!!

    Michelle and Wes dropped us back to our hotel at about 10.30. We were do impressed with them both we asked about doing something else with them during the day. Michelle quickly arranged a day trip which I will cover in another review, yes it was also incredible so make sure you read it too.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you to you both, Golden Blossom Tours are lucky to have you as guides!!

    Such a great tour! Highly recommend.

    I went back in January 2020 with my friend who had been living in KL since August. The food was great, of course, but our guide, Ken, really made the experience. He was courteous, funny, and knowledgable, and I felt like he really enjoyed sharing his favorite spots and meeting new people.

    Make sure to show up hungry and to pace yourself so that you're not stuffed before the last stop!

    I ended up having a private tour with Chef Faris since I was the only booking. The only downside was I had to eat a lot of food on my own, but it was fantastic to be taken around and shown different things. He clearly knew what he was talking about and he was super friendly and helpful. No issue booking as a single, just don't feel like you need to clear all the plates.
