The private tour brought us even closer to Kuala Lumpur!

With Stefan we had an insider on hand with valuable information from everyday life in Kuala Lumpur and its surroundings, because he lives in the vicinity. We were able to get to know the Batu Caves cave with its Hindu temples with Stefan and were then relatively stress-free in many interesting parts of the city in Kuala Lumpur, the size of which we experienced here personally, which was not so apparent during the travel preparations at home. Stefan also brought us closer to the life of the locals here and there. Unfortunately, we didn't see the old colonial quarter in the city with him, which would have been a witness. Stefan then helped us to find an optimal time booking for a visit to the Petronas Towers the next day. We can only recommend Stefan for the private tour in Kuala Lumpur.

Stefan took us on a tour of the Batu Caves, the National Mosque, the Presidential Palace and Petaling Street/Central Market. He was very competent, entertaining, flexible and was able to tell us a lot about his life in KL. Finally, there were numerous good tips for going out and eating in the evening. All in all, just as we imagined a tour

Whilst I thought I'd asked for a visit to the telecom tower & meeting locals, I had a guide (originally from Germany) who arrived in her car & took me immediately to Batu Caves &, afterwards, a really good meal in China town. Not what I'd expected but have understood that my choice wasn't brilliant & I got to see a place which I thought I wouldn't. She was informative & friendly & I really enjoyed my trip.
