Excellent tour

From the pick-up at Port Klang to the end of the tour, everything was perfect. Our tour guide had extensive (background) knowledge of Kuala Lumpur and Malaysia, spoke very good English and had worked out an optimal schedule for our tour. There was interesting information and explanations for each sightseeing spot. We had a really great day and would fully recommend the tour.
