I highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in experience the Malay food scene! Our guide Joel was amazing — he shared a lot of his knowledge on the country history and culture while introducing us to some delicious dishes on the way. I always take food tours when I travelled, and I can tell this one was the perfect combination of food (quality, variety and amount), history and laughs!

Wonderful day tour to Batu Cave and Genting Highlands. We had a nice trip with our driver Mr Wai(Sightseeing by Private Vehicle with Driver). Wai was friendly and communicated easily with us in Tamil and english. He picked up from the hotel on time, then visited Batu Cave and Genting highland.

Very condensed hours, versatile, space for individual questions, really informative, great pictures taken, reliable transfer from / to the hotel. The batik factory wouldn't have needed it, it's a matter of taste. Overall, highly recommended for travelers on a tight schedule.

great guide, TK was very knowledgeable about everything. we went to food stalls I wouldn't have dared to go to on my one, but every food stall was excellent. definitely worth it.

All went very fine. David has been excellent guide.
