Kuala Lumpur City Highlights Tour
Head to multiple Kuala Lumpur attractions, making photo stops at the King's Palace — a symbol of Malaysian sovereignty — as well as Merdeka Square (aka Independence Square), which features a panorama of fascinating buildings in an array of architectural styles. Your guide offers informative commentary on the city’s growing skyline, whose ultra-modern structures tower above edifices with Indo-Moorish influence.
Gaze up at the Islamic geometric patterns on the 88-story Petronas Twin Towers, whose multifaceted walls and twin spires contain thousands of steel and glass panels.
Your journey continues with a visit to the National Museum to see historic Malaysian artifacts, from traditional weapons and costumes to modern arts and crafts and musical instruments.
Then, drive past the beautiful Lake Gardens on your way to view the National Monument, commemorating Malaysia's struggle for freedom during World War II. Nearby, admire the modern construction of the National Mosque and the pleasant combination of Eastern and Western architecture of the Kuala Lumpur Railway Station.
The final stop on your sightseeing tour of Kuala Lumpur is the Cocoa Boutique, where you will bask is a chocolate haven. Spend time browsing the amazing sweet selections.
Afterward, re-board your coach and end with drop-off at your hotel.

We were expecting to do the "KL City Highlights" tour - but instead the tour company told our guide we were on the "Batu Caves Cultural Tour" - problem is... we had just visited Batu Caves that morning. We even saw his paperwork from the tour company stating such. With such a mess up, I would normally rate 1/5 stars - so why 3 stars? Because our guide saved the day. Realizing that something was wrong when all 3 of us on the tour were shocked to be going out to Batu Caves, he adapted the tour and even ran it 90 minutes long so that we could get in some extra locations. Our guide was super friendly and obviously cared a lot about our experience to do this for us. He really saved the day. I cannot say for certain what the normal "KLCity Highlihgts Tour" includes as ours was a bit of a mix. That being said, I think these guides are contracted out by the various agencies and I'm not sure that everyone could always expect the same. It's concerning that the tour company gave him incorrect paperwork since they are the coordinators.
What a horrible tour. The information was limited and we were essentially brought from one tourist scam to the next. This is not a city tour it is a tour to tourist shops to encourage you to buy items. As soon as you get in each store they are shouting prices at you not giving you much background about the products. I couldn't wait for the tour to end. Would NOT recommend.
Horrible. First problem was they would not pick me up at the KL Hilton even though it was on the list. I was forced to take a taxi in rush hour traffic to get to the main meeting point. The tour itself consisted of two shopping stops which had nothing to do with the tour. Tour director kickbacks.
Our guide was David. He picked us up from our hotel. There were 3 more guests doing this tour with us. He gave us enough time at each place to visit and take photos. Gave us enough information about each place. Tour was short but enough to know about the main historical places in KL. Also visited the Royal Selangor, which was a first for us. After the tour, David dropped us at Low Yat Plaza at our request. Tour and guide both recommended.
This trip is highly recommended for first timers to Kuala Lumpur. My wife and I had only one other guest and our driver was very friendly and his driving was exceptional.
