We had a wonderful driver called Halem, he was prompt in picking us up, he covered all the main sights in the city and was very informative about the city and its history. I would recommend Halem as a fantastic guide.

The pick up was on time and the tour was interesting, got to see the highlights of the city.
I recommend that you do this tour on the first day you arrive, otherwise if you do it a day later or 2 days later you will have seen most of the attractions anyway.

Great to see some of the sights. We were the only ones on this tour so if we didn’t want to see something then we would just tell the driver. Once finished he dropped us to a shopping centre instead of our hotel, but that was also our choice.

We have mixed feelings. We went to different places in a car and basically very little was told during the trip. The driver talked as much on his trips to Europe. He was delayed 20 min and we stopped 30 min before. The tour included three completely useless visits to leather, food and chocolate stores.

The bus that took us around KL was comfortable, but the tour itself was boring. The first couple of stops were basically shopping stops, and we spent way too much time there (mostly because some people in the group decided they need to buy everything). The rest of the tour was okay, mostly just go somewhere and take some pictures. Unfortunately, I could barely understand the guide, so I can't say whether the commentary was informative.
