The guide was very knowledgeable and witty, made the tour entertaining. The batik factory wasn't the engaging but we enjoyed the temple tour and visit to the Royal Selangor factory. The only downside was that the organisers didn't keep time in the morning, as we waited about 45 minutes to 1 hour for others to get to the bus.

All good slightly different tour of the Towers from before all good the TV screens on the top floor need updating. Overall all China town good getting lost. Quite expensive but its Kuala Lumpur!

We were lucky to get a really good tour guide who went out of his way to make sure we were happy and the trip was very enjoyable

Great tour guide, Nadia was amazing and enthusiastic and made the tour interesting with great insight on the history of places.
