Firstly it took quite a few days for the tour operator to confirm the booking. I have stayed in contact with them via email up to a day before the tour. The meeting point and time was agreed, but no one showed up to pick me up. As it was early morning 6:30 I had to wait for their offices to open at 8:30. I was ringing them till 9:30 with no success. Considering I had only few hours to spend in Kuala Lumpur and didn't do much research on what to do as I paid £120 for travel agent to do it for me, I wasn't very happy with the outcome. Would never recommend this tour to anyone...

Excellente manière de découvrir les points forts de Kuala Lumpur, l'espace d'une escale. Le chauffeur est venu nous accueillir à l'aéroport et nous a fait découvrir sa ville, le temps d'une matinée. Ces quelques heures dans cette ville grandiose, nous ont donnés envie de revenir pour un plus long séjour.
